    Hey guys been having quite a bit of success lately, and I feel absolutely OBLIGED to give back to BHW.

    Failed about 25 times now, finally getting some serious return - rule #1 is KEEP GOING, KEEP TRYING. If you don't keep researching, applying, investigating, staying up late... then you're never gonna catch that 1 venture!

    This drop ship was very hit and miss - I also have another venture so this is 100% passive income right now.

    Bought a $10 (TOTAL INVESTMENT SO FAR LOL) exact match for a small time product that people prefer to buy online.
    Installed Opencart/Magento store.
    Contacted 5 different businesses across the country that sold the product on their shitty online store (most have physical stores where ever they are).
    Ask to drop ship.
    He says usually a 28% markup is what the drop shipper gets <- I said I'll make my own prices lol and he said OK.

    Anyway:
    My store is the exact match of product, plenty of competition from random other stores but NO seo work by the competitors <- I never thought I'd break through, but then I set the site up and waited.....

    Don't know what to dropship? Go to your local shops. Find inspiration. Use the google keyword tool. Find stuff in your country that people want to buy online. I have many competitors, but barely any (that use seo/black hat techniques)
    FOCUS. I drop ship one product (8 brands of the one product)



    After creating the website with a cracked theme and a shit logo with a I completely forgot about the website for some time...






    About 1 month passed and I got a PayPal email:

    Notification of Payment Received. etc., etc.

    I thought it was ebay, however eBay sends like 15 emails every time you sell something lol.

    Check the email and it was an opencart generated order.

    Using my new iPhone 5 lol, I simply clicked FORWARD message to the drop shipper.
    He emailed me back saying "Awaiting Payment"

    I sold item for:
    2 x product at $27 = $54
    + Shipping $14 shipping ($7 per item coz I dont know how to make it $7 total lol)

    Drop Shipper request:
    2 x product 16.50ea = $33
    + Shipping $8

    Profit margin was $27! :)
    Recieved payment via paypal, paid thru paypal too.


    NOW THIS IS THE MAIN PART!!!
    I had COMPLETELY forgot about the website.
    But then the HOLY GRAIL of success came thru: POSTIVIE REINFORCEMENT.
    I made me $27 in a 1 second transaction with zero SEO works and effort:
    Only $27, but it was enough to make me take the on page SEO seriously:
    Added proper images, cleaned up design, made it look 100% legit.
    added product descriptions & contact details.

    2 days later another order, $15 profit margin this time.
    but yeah, that was about month ago and since then the site has done pretty well ESPECIALLY OVER THE LAST 8 DAYS (I keep 40% of each sale!!!!):

    So about $350 profit over the last month and even 2 orders tonight lol.
    $350 per month = at least $4000 a year from the SMALLEST of drop ship companies.

    1 order every few days is enough to make $4000 a year guys. DO NOT GIVE UP. I BUILTY THIS LAST MONTH - THERE ARE EVEN BETTER PRODUCTS OUT THERE KEEP WORKING KEEP SEARCHING & YOU WILL FIND PRODUCTS THAT WORK.

    Not from a western country you say?
    Doesn't matter - because all you do is FORWARD EMAILS LOL.

    CONNECT THE BUYER TO THE SELLER, TAKE A 40%-90% CUT.
    THATS THE RULES.

    100% PASSIVE INCOME - $10 SETUP - NO TRICKS - NO CRAZY SEO BUILD ETC ETC
    ON PAGE SEO ONLY

    BUILT 1 MONTH AGO, NOT 10 YEARS AGO, THIS WORKS

    Well yeah that's really what I did lol
    2 minutes of research, 2400 local monthly searchs
    VERY basic SEO.
    No articles on my site, no backlinks, just PURE long tail google searches country specific (I am doing some now tho)
    I didn't actually expect it to make money - I literally built it and forgot about it.

    Nice method, but I assume this would work in a country like India, where we can't make a PP to PP payments within the country.

    Anyone got any other alternative for this transaction system, then it might work.

    Yeah exactly, just buy an american paypal of another BHW member here?

    This method is so damn simple and absolutely autopilot, but obviously that hardest part is getting motivated to find a niche.


    Could easily work in India, I think I could replicate this in the UK, Canada etc. easily, just have to take advantage of some of the resources here.
