    Greetings fellow marketers,

    After much consideration, I have decided to start my own journey to success.


    Background Info:
    Name: Danny
    Age: 16
    Experience: Just browsing around on affiliate sites and learning about basic seo tactics, ideas

    I know I'm pretty young, but I figured that's the exact reason to start and try some basic ideas. I still live with my parents and so if I do end up, for example, $80 in debt, my parents will support me (Although they won't be happy about it and make me pay it back). I'm pretty great with money management and have a part time job reffing soccer games, so I know that amazing feeling of bringing in money. A couple months back, I stumbled upon this wonderful site while browsing around Gamersoul. Since then, I have been poking my nose into different categories of marketing and have been trying to wrap my mind around the huge concept of pr and seo. About a month ago, I decided to open a couple Twitter accounts with the goal of increasing my followers and building my audience. Using some free bots this site had to offer and some prior knowledge about social media promoting, I managed to successfully gain 50k followers on one account. (Using no Follower Liker, or any paid bot). After my successful Twitter campaign, I understood that there was so much more that I could experience and try out from this site. This enlightenment led me to this thread and my new journey!


    My Plan
    :
    The reason I chose these two methods specifically were because they looked easier to use. Also after getting it going, these methods are basically autopilot, which is a huge deal to me because school is still destroying me (2400 SAT, here I come!!!).
    SO, let's get into it......
    I have an aged Ebay account from 2013 (made it a while back to sell some stuff) and I haven't used it since. So, I decided to use this aged account (the limits are high) to try Amazon -> Ebay dropshipping.
    • January: I should be doing everything to gain rep (without losing profit). I will probably be selling items with around $0.10 profit (including all fees) to get quick sells, higher ranking, and more reps.
    • February: I should have enough reps by now. I will start increasing the prices of my products to gain bigger profits.
    • March - June: Hopefully everything should be autopilot at this point. Will continue adding products from Amazon and keeping an eye on everything.
    I also have decided to make my own eCommerce site, with a very specific niche, to try and bring in some money. I will be promoting this website via meatpackers method, twitter advertising, and maybe some ppc via Facebook ads. (Probably not as I hear it takes quite a lot of money to get it going). My whole inventory will be based off of AliExpress.
    • January: I should have my website finished and be advertising it through Twitter. Should have made at least one sale.
    • February: If Ebay brings enough income, I will start advertising via pr and/or Facebook ads. Should have made a bit more then one sale.
    • March - June: Will continue bringing traffic to this site via meatpacker method. Should be making quite a bit of sales at this point.

    I will keep everyone updated and hopefully any pros out there can give me some helpful tips! Also if I made a mistake anywhere with my knowledge, please let me know as it will save me a huge butt spanking later on!

    and wow, I just sold an item on Ebay as I was making this thread. Good stuff, good stuff. (Only $0.13 profit though)

    Thanks everyone,
    Danny

    Oh okay, so just increasing price a bit.
    How are you dealing with dropshipping items, ask supplier to not include invoice, etc?

    That's what I was planning on doing; however, I might add an interesting little twist just as an experiment.

    ***UPDATE***

    So....
    Ebay:
    Nothing's really happened, just a couple of item views.

    Website:
    -Finished building
    -Bought a domain from GoDaddy ($1.17)
    -linked store to domain (all ready to go now)
    -Created Social Media Pages for my website/store
    -sending likes/followers to pages for "vouch" worthy social media accounts
    -Started advertising my store on Facebook Groups, Tweets

    Investment: $1.17
    Profit: $0.00

    Is there any other way (besides website2.0 and all that) to send traffic to your site? Any manual blog posting, etc. I was planning on using Yahoo Answers but apparently your account has to be level 3 to post clickable links so that pretty much beats that idea. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated!

    Best of luck! For a 16 year old, IM can get very discouraging when you don't see the results you expect. Believe me, I've been there. Just remember to keep moving forward. Continue to learn new things to better help you in your current and future ventures!

    **UPDATE***

    OK SOO...
    Ebay:
    After discussing with some community members, I found a way to boost ebay reps tremendously (completely legal, no black hat)
    Unfortunately, this method takes a bit of time, so I will update you guys on this when the results start coming in!

    INVESTMENT: $0
    PROFIT: STILL $0.23


    Website:
    I applied for a HUGE forum site that has crazy traffic specifically related to my niche. Once I get accepted I will start promoting my website by hand. I might buy an article with ~300 words or so from BHW. But that all depends on how "awesome" this website actually is.

    INVESTMENT: $1.17
    PROFIT: $0

    ***UPDATE***

    SO... I have temporarily closed my shopify store because I could not devote enough attention to sending traffic to my shopify store, keeping up with Ebay, school, social life, etc etc. (You also have to pay a monthly fee to maintain it and if I don't make back the money, I lose around $30/month)
    I will resume the store once my ebay dropshipping settles in and I become more comfortable running it effortlessly (overcome all problems). I also intend to do more research on how to send traffic and how to rank sites before starting up the shop again.

    Ebay dropshipping is going great however. Selling around 1 item every day profiting around $1-4. Amazon account has not got banned yet, which is also a good sign!
    INVESTMENT (INCLUDING WEBSITE): $3.90
    TOTAL PROFIT: $9.40

    :)
