If you don't have a lot of experience or a massive budget on marketing and sales, be ready for some loss. Please do your market research before starting this business. I don't want to dishearten you. But this is a super competitive industry. So if you don't have a big advantage or a unique selling point, you will struggle.

I would recommend you start really small to mitigate losses. Do an extensive research to find out what would be your unique selling point and get your product manufactured in a very small batch, could be one item in each design. Click beautiful pictures and engage with your target customers on your facebook page and other targeted facebook groups. Start taking individual orders. Target a small segment, preferably in your geography and market your product to them on Facebook, through paid ads and observe how people are engaging with those ads. Keep improving. You do not need a website for the first 6 months, you can sell through Facebook and Instagram initially.

Remember to plan, execute, improve and have a lot of patience. :)

It is good idea for you star a online shop. I think that children's style is good choice. Search engine promotion and social media promotion are good channels. It will help you get more orders.

I think it is impossible. You will face a loss anyway. If you find a way to save money it would be a perfect start. Though, you will have to put a lot of effort and use all your skills to make it work. It's just like a student tries to cope with a great amount of writing tasks such as exploration essay and other types of works. Moreover, if you don't know how to write it you need to do a lot of research before you start working on the content. Anyway, I wish you good luck with online business and have a perfect start up!
