I just posted something about how I am struggling to get things off the ground, here, but I saw another thread about cloth diaper online shops so I thought I would ask for opinions.
I am launching a store that will sell eco-friendly products for families. I haven't seen any good stores that you can go to and buy only green products. It is such a PITA to find these products. I know there are some really HUGE green shopping sites out there but they honestly sometimes overwhelm me and they focus on things like solar panels. I have spent HOURS sifting through info in order to figure out which brands are safe and "green" and then trying to figure out the best place to buy them from. Most people don't have the time to do this, but I did it before deciding I had enough knowledge to launch a site like this. I am definitely going to have a website that covers things like cloth diapers, green cleaning products, organic gardening, reusable products instead of disposable, etc. and then a separate shop where you can buy those safer, eco-friendly products. I'm also going to do videos reviewing most of the products I am selling or showing how they work. I'll probably put the videos on both the shop site and info site.
Do you think this is a good idea? What would the shop have to offer for it to be somewhere you think people would want to shop from?
I might also do ads / affiliate links on the info site itself to generate income. If the shop doesn't work out then at least I might be able to make an income from all the articles I have written..
