    Hi guys am from Africa, I have a website that allows traffic to share whatever they sell for free...... I use my Facebook page and other social networks to advertise the site......I have like 1500 people talking about it and 4000likes on the recent Facebook page.


    Recently, I've been searching from different sites on the cheap deals in my town: cheap phones, cheap cars, cheap everything and since the DEALERS leave their numbers so I take the opportunity to be the bridge between the SELLERS and CUSTOMERS. I confirm the deals and ask every detail through cold calling, I jot down every product's details including the price, phone number of the dealer and their pictures. I then promote the products through my Facebook page. I have done it for a week and the Facebook insights show me a peak performance so far.


    M
    y expenditure ranges on $0.6 a day for 200text messages, 100MB of internet and 30minutes of free talking time to any network. it's all enough to collect information and do everything I do for a day, I rarely use further cause I have other businesses too. I made about 20deals this week but only 5 or 6 were loyal. so I made like $60. Am in the middle of thinking maybe I could push more sales by physically meetingevery customer and dealer, yet I like it better negotiating with the dealer on the phone, the price I will announce so as I can earn around $10-$20 from every transaction. Not yet sure on some cost effective way to deal with this..though??? I will be honored with any of your ideas on the particular issue..my belief is on: getting about 10deals or more everyday so I'll be on $100 bucks a day and $3000 a month. Thank you for reading this post, I love you guys and wish you all the best. Mazel tov

    Dude, please use some white space to make your post readable. Is just a block of text and it makes it hard to read.

    So you got burned on some transactions and didn't get paid? And you want to avoid that from keep on happening right?

    Yeah that's gonna be hard without having some control of the merchandise or the money involved. One option might be to find a VERY interested buyer and then negotiate a very good price from the seller, buy it yourself and then resell it and profit.

    You can also try to get people to pay you for posting in your site, which I think will be hard unless your site/page gets a lot of traffic.

    In any case, good luck.

    Haha love the font colors, feels like I'm about to have a seizure and wake up in Jamaica. But yeah go easy on the Rastafarian font, it's kinda giving me a headache.

    My first thought is damn that sounds like a lot of work. Have you ever considered implementing some type of automated system like allowing the business owners posting on your site for a fee instead of you constantly hunting them down?
