We will offer a totally branded platform that these firms can build/manage multiple client ecommerce sites. There's really on one in our space that does this or does it well.
The 1st thing you should do it to identify 100 potential customers from your group to approach them and to offer them to use the platform to test it out.
These people will not only give you feedback on how to improve it but also will give you testimonials for your website.
The next thing to do (when you have the testimonials) is build some landing pages and to run some Google AdWords. Do some A/B testing and test different value propositions. I recommend adding some retargeting to your site so you don't lose visitors forever.
When you have tested out which keywords work best, you cans tart investing more in SEO. It will take time to rank well but it's worth to start doing it early.
Focus on content marketing that is related to your product and at the same time attracts and educates your target audience. Use ebook and webinars to generate leads and engage your audience.
Don't forget to focus on blogging. That is really important in your type of business. Share your content on social media during the day. Use followerwonk to know when to share on Twitter and run some tests to figure out the best time for Facebook and Google+. Find influencers in your industry and connect with them online. These people will make the difference in your business.
I believe in the first months you should focus on:
1. Getting feedback about your product
2. Generating leads through PPC, SEO, content marketing and social media.
3. Using your first users feedback to generate some publicity

Understanding the white labelling is the best way to decide.
“White label business” refers to a fully supported product or service that is made by one company but sold by another. White label product definition implies that it is a “raw” generic commodity, which is consequently rebranded, customized with the company’s logo, label, and identity, and used as their own. After the company customizes the product with the feel and look of their own brand, it can begin selling the product as its own collecting revenues and share the commission with the service provider or technology. All technical issues associated with white label platform development, as well as further support and maintenance, are entirely outsourced to the white label company. As a result, the brand receives the product which is made in accordance with technical requirements set before implementation. Saving money, time, and technical platform management are not the only reasons why you might want to launch your own platform.
