Let’s be honest. Finding, evaluating, and selecting a product to sell online is extremely difficult. The pros make it look easy, but if you’ve been dreaming of starting an online business, you’ll know first hand how hard that process really is.
When I got started in ecommerce five years ago, I spent close to four months looking at thousands of products on Alibaba, eBay, and Amazon trying to select just one. I had no idea what I was doing or how to evaluate the products I was looking at. In the years since, I’ve gained an incredible amount of knowledge on choosing products to sell online and evaluating them starting with one of my first and most notable posts on A Better Lemonade Stand, Reverse Engineering The Perfect Ecommerce Product. Since that post though, I have further reverse engineered the process of finding and selecting great products to sell online.
Almost everyday I had the opportunity to share bits and pieces of that information when people would email me asking about my thoughts on their product idea. But I knew eventually, I would have to consolidate all that information and distill it into a guide in order to help as many people as possible.
And then it happened.
Shopify asked me to write the book. Not just any book, the unequivocal, most detailed, resource packed, no fluff or filler, definitive guide to choosing a product to sell online. My eyes lit up. It was my chance and my time to take years of knowledge and experience and create something truly remarkable that can help tens of thousands of people fulfill their dreams of finally starting their online business.
Today, I am really proud to announce the launch of my first book, How To Find A Product To Sell Online: The Definitive Guide.

I dedicate this book to anyone that is still searching for their path of passion. I was lucky enough to find my passion for ecommerce in a coffee shop on a cold December night 5 years ago during a impromptu conversation with old friend. I guess that shows that inspiration and your path in life can appear anywhere. Always be receptive and always be searching.
