    Hey guys, so few months ago I bought new car and it was BMW, so few friends of mine who already own the same car invited me to few BUY/SELL BmW groups on Facebook.

    These groups are basically groups where people post useful car parts for sale.

    90% of these posts are really great and I even bought few parts from people who posted it there.

    So when I found some Macedonian Facebook BmW car parts group I saw some guy spamming every single post comments with his affiliate link from Aliexpress and other networks.

    Bad thing was that every profile he used for spam got banned in 10 hours from posting few spammy comments, and he was really stubborn, he created new profiles every single day.

    I was like fu*k this, this guy probably make nice money, let's try it.




    And my journey started like this...


    I did some research on 100+ groups with car parts and I realized that tons of people are using xenon lights in their cars, and 99% of these lamps are from china, so you have to replace them every 5-6 months.

    So I decided to start selling xenons, whole xenon light packages, lamps, small parts...

    I found few affiliate programs with these lamps and I used AliExpress too, so I found best prices, best commissions and I was ready.

    First, I got into these groups and I started liking and commenting there, I spent 20 days just making sure they remember me so they won't ban me when I post something.

    When I became kinda 'respected' member of these groups I started posting my affiliate links, sometimes directly, sometimes I cloaked them with my domain.

    I posted in Toyota, BMW, VW and Nissan groups for 2 months, and I sold tons and tons of items, and I was shocked.

    My affiliate commission on $100 was $5 and that was nice, these networks are accepting worldwide sales so I could sell these stuff here in Croatia and Bosnia and Serbia and it was great.




    How I started making more money with this


    2 months ago I ordered 200 items from AliBaba, all xenon related items, and I waited for 30 days to get them here in Croatia.

    When I got these items I started taking photos of them and I posted them on OLX and other classified sites here on Balkan.

    Now when I owned these items in my basement I was able to set my own profit margins.

    So from $5 commission on $100 sale, now I started making $20 from the same items.

    I took professional photos of these items, I created classified ads and I posted these items in Balkan car parts groups.

    So now people don't have to wait for their items for 40 days from china, they can get it for 24 hours because I shipped them from my house.

    I sold all items I ordered from AliBaba in 15 days so I decided to stay in this shit, I spend only 2 hours per day posting and shipping stuff because I can't find more time, but this became hell of a side income for me.


    You can use AliExpress to sell some items on affiliate commission first, and when you make some money you can order same items from Alibaba with way better price and you can set your own margins.

    You can do this with basically every single niche.

    Well I was thinking about that but I don't have time for that, xenon shops and xenon repair shops are really rare here, 1 repair shop per 2-3 cities.

    That'd require a lot of capital and time invested. You should talk to repair shops to see if they want to buy from you directly.

    Wow great idea. I'm going to look at some facebook groups and find something similar. Thanks for the idea! I don't think this is something that will get saturated quickly.

    I live on Bosnia/Serbia border and i can confirm that olx is hot here. GJ Adrian. Best thing about OLX is that they have nothing to do with payment processing, which means that with some blackhatting u can make reputation there SO EASILY
