Yep, it's about that time. I figured I should test the waters of this breath-takingly-fast growing niche. Ever since the WHO raised the pandemic alert level to five, people in my state (Arkansas) are discussing it. I thought, hey, might as well cash in, right? I'm currently selling surgical masks (N95). Supplier I have a private source which allows me to purchase N95 masks (the only ones that can actually protect you). I can get 200 masks for $25.00 USD. Campaign Statistics I'm selling each mask at $5.00/mask (yeah, I know, raping the price). I have a large easily-mobile stand that I use. I have it decreated with pictures of people wearing masks and on the top part I have: "The N95 Respiratorical Face Mask" "Are You Prepared?" And on the bottom I have: "Surgical masks help stop droplets from spreading, but respirators are designed to filter small particles. If used correctly, respirators are more likely to reduce flu risk, - CDC". "Mere Masks Are Useless -Get A Respirator" Results I've been doing this for two days thus far and these are the results: First Day I sold 250 masks at $5.00/mask Supplies = -$26.25 USD Gross = $1,250 USD Net = $1,223.75 USD Second Day (I switched towns) I sold 383 masks at $5.00/mask Supplies = -$47.50 USD Gross = $1,915 USD Net = $1,867.50 USD The reason I was able to sell so many is that people don't just buy one for themselfs they also snag a lot for their family. So I get like eight sales off of one person. Also, they don't seem to be wearing the masks, they just want them in case the problem gets severe enough. P.S. It helps if you wear one why you're selling them. P.S.S. It's going to suck ass if I catch the swine flu.
