What I learned watching a webinar on Dropshipping

The other day I watched a webinar on dropshipping from AliExpress to eBay that was hosted by Zik Analytics a tool that can help you do research on Ali Express and eBay.

I have tested their tool and it was very useful. After testing the tool I thought that I would take a look at their webinar on dropshippping. Strange I know, however I was using the tool for eBay only research which I have to say was a very good tool for. More on that another day.

Anyway, I took notes throughout and have put the link to the webinar on YouTube if you fancy watching it yourself.
