It's about time someone has written a free e-book that can actually help you, and is

NOT a glorified sales pitch for their company.


Welcome to our free e-book entitled "Starting Your Online Retail Niche With Drop Shipping"


This book was written by our Drop Ship List Directory team. Our team has created this e-book for you to use as a guide in establishing your online retail business using drop shipping. The e-book is free for you to download and read. Feel free to share and distribute the e-book with anyone wanting to learn more about drop shipping and starting an online store.


We have found most free e-books on the Web today to contain very little helpful information as their author's hidden agenda is to get you to buy their products. Their free e-book is nothing more than a bunch of glorified sales pitches with very little to offer in terms of useful material. We have read many of the so called "free e-books" about online retailing on the Web today. After reading many of these e-books, our team soon realized we had learned very little about the subject matter they were supposed to cover. We found this to be true with some of the e-books we had even paid to download. There are many customers who have encountered the same issue. Out of shear frustration, our team decided to write this book. It is focused on many of the subjects you will need to know about as you begin your new online store.


Folks, your time is valuable. Do not waste it reading a glorified sales pitch disguised as a free e-book. If you are new to e-tailing, drop shipping, ecommerce, niche marketing, or doing a marketing plan...take the time to read this e-book. Remember...The leaders are the readers.


Best Wishes,

Drop Ship List Directory Team
