Now find a niche to narrow the page to. For example, you can narrow the page to say men’s Dresses.

Now what you need to do is to surf through some o the most popular online shops and get the best/quality men’s dresses pictures and then always upload them on your page with catchy descriptions. Once you do that, you can be sharing these pictures with your friends and other social media platform to attract people. In most cases, people will follow the product’s link and go to your Instagram page. Once they are on the page, they will try to go through your wall to see more.

After being able to establish your Instagram page and acquired more followers, you can begin to upload products with their price tags on your page. One may say where can I get the products? This is simple, if you have a small capital, you can purchase these products at a cheaper price from most of the china online stores and have them stored, then upload their images on your Instagram page with the prices, Your followers, will chat with you for negotiation. Make the best deal and then sell the items to them. But if you have no capital, you can use the dropshipping idea here. Get products pictures and then upload them to your store, once your followers contact you for the product, you can then take the money, then order the products from the original seller using their details. The seller will then ship the items directly to the buyer without passing them through you. See What is a Dropshipping, Requirements and How to Start as a College Student
