    Hi all, I am here to request you for some advice. There are some artisans in my native place in India who make clay dolls but they do not have much buyers to support their trade and I fear that they are in high risk of going out of business very soon. I am thinking of creating an online selling platform for them so that their work gets more exposure and attracts more buyers. I am completely novice in this matter and do not have very clear idea how to start and organize everything. Shall I create a website from where the prospective buyers can buy their products? Then what about the logistics? where to find trusted logistics partner? how reliable is the drop shipping concept? Or shall I go with platforms like Amazon?..but wont there be the risk of product hijacking? And another fact is I have a job and I do not stay in my native place. It’s that I recently visited there and could see the situations of those artisans are very bleak and I decided to do something to help them. Your advice to start our venture would be really helpful. Thanks in advance.
