Getting into clothing can be VERY difficult due to the HUGE competition from established online businesses. You really have to have a product or range that is different, and you must be very good at marketing. I hate to be a downer but you really should know what faces you.

If you really want to go ahead with this you have to make sure that you have a market for your line – not just what you want but is there enough people who want the same, you have to find a reliable wholesale supplier, have someone build you a great website, and really learn about online marketing.

Keep in mind that it will take months at least to start getting sales because when anyone ‘Googles’ childrens clothing they will get pages of established businesses and your site will probably not come up in searches for a long time. Google is not friendly to new websites unless customers search particularly for your business name or you are well known.

It can be done but this sort of business will take a lot of time and work before it starts to pay off.
