Hello world, I want to say hello, and thank you for everyone viewing/following along. This will be my first ever journey and my first attempt at really earning online. So I'm going to be laying out a few details of myself, personally, and also my IM experiences, and also my goals via eBay DS. GOALS: My goal is to turn my profits into $1k/week by mid-Dec/early-Jan. If possible, we will surely shoot for sooner! I'd eventually like to turn DSing into a FT, 6-figure deal — leading into branding my eBay products in a way to redirect eventually into my own store (whether it be shopify or whatever, that's a ways down the road yet). EXPERIENCE: My experience with eBay is nonexistence... same with dropshipping, but I've been doing pretty extensive research. Also the only online money I've ever made online has been through YouTube, and that was within about a year's time, and on a personal channel (IM or monetizing wasn't really a concern). I've purchased and designed 1 website just recently and was able to direct ~ 30 uniques/day through FB groups, IG posts, and twitter — but was unable to generate income, so I pulled the plug as the concept of DSing sits better in my head. I've also grown an IG to 50k in 5-6 months, and two twitter to 12-17k in 3 months. Essentially, I'm still at noob status. PERSONAL: I'm just a young aged online college student (21) trying to make a career online. I came to BHW solely to learn how to grow social media accounts to help jumpstart my fitness career (I'm also a CPT, and a semi-sponsored athlete), but along the way I fell in love with, and really grasped a lot of IM concepts... I just haven't put the pen to paper quite yet. I also work 3rd shift in a hotel where I have 6.5-7h of downtime through my 8h shift which really allows me to have quite the time to focus on what I'm after. I'm a fairly particular person, and try my best to really understand things before I pursue them (which is why I've only really had one full-on attempt @ IM to this point). I'm also not someone who enjoys to fail, or not properly executing. Right now I have two eBay stores, both with a 500/$25k limit, if the ball gets rolling, and I outdo my limits I will buy a few Stealth accounts, but until then, I'll be just be slowly climbing the latter. At this point I only have a few listings, and have received a few offers from scammers, but in the next week or two I will be attacking more profitable niches and increasing my listings dramatically. My plan is to have my stores to where I'd like them (profitable, low competition niches) by the end of the first week in August, selling low-to-no profit through August, and potentially a good portion of September, before turning my goals towards profiting more and heavily pursuing my $1k/week goals (which I will have to acquire more stores for, I'm aware of). If you've made it this far through the OP, welcome and thank you. I hope to motivate members here with my first journey, and encourage any insight and nothing but positivity. To the next step, my friends. Mahalo.
