    Hey peeps,
    This is one of my first posts giving back to this amazing community. This was an idea I came up with and I feel like people could benefit from it and possibly make it even better. This idea is how to cut the time needed to find cheap Aliexpress items from suppliers using the power of leverage (utilize freelancers).

    This is a breakdown of the idea:

    Problems
    • Finding the cheapest products can be a timely process, especially if you're finding more than 30+ products.
    • The process can take hours on top of the hours you've already researched in finding the profitable product.
    • If you work with someone else, you can lose autonomy over your "find"
    Solution
    • Step 1: Write a short document detailing on what factors you're looking for (EX: Free Shipping, cheapest price, 'X' amount of ratings); a modular document
    • Step 2: Find the lucrative product with a quick search on Aliexpress to ensure it exists (If yes, step 2)
    • Step 3: Go to Freelancer.com and create an account
    • Step 4: Refer your other email to earn a free $20.00: http://prntscr.com/ej90g5 (this task is so easy and takes less than an hour, that you can hire multiple freelancers at once to find multiple products)
    • Step 5: Offer an incentive. Challenge the Freelancer to really find the lowest price and say you'll "test" his results; this ensures you get great results.
    • Step 6: Rinse and Repeat. Ensure you use multiple different Freelancers to prevent any worries of gaining another competitor. Asking the Freelancers to put the results on Excel will make your job easier.
    This method is by no means revolutionary. This method is designed for lazier people or people that simply just want to be much more efficient in less time. That way, you can spend more time on the more important things such as: research, building your store, optimizing your sales funnel, ad copies, marketing material, growing social media accounts, and etc. This method works better for people with a high amount of products to sell (30 or more).

    Only drawbacks to this method is this: You rely on others to get you results (a constraint), ineffective results by trashy Freelancers (mitigated by simply giving them a test), and the fear that a Freelancer may take one of your product ideas (which is why you diversify by going with multiple Freelancers), and it's time-consuming in the beginning (as you're negotiating with Freelancers).

    The good thing about this method, if you do it once successfully, it can be easily reused again and again. You also feel like you actually own a company when you have people reporting back to you, allowing you to use these hashtags: #entrepreneurlife #lazyassentrepreneur #leverage (This is a joke, please don't criticize me in the comments).

    Disclaimer: I haven't used this method. It's a hypothesis I came up with and I thought it would be cool to share it with you guys.

    I'm sorry for trying to be helpful to others. Should you scold someone that is just trying to help? Many of the techniques here are untested, but nobody has the "ballz" to say that. They just put it down and claim an outrageous claim that it can generate 100,000+ dollars in a month without ever testing it. If you'd like me to back this up, I can cover this page with untested techniques.

    Is my post any different? No, it isn't. I wrote it because I wanted to contribute in my limited way as everyone here is trying to do. The reason why I don't test it is because I no longer require it. It's an idea I came up with when I was working and figured someone could use the idea. I apologize if you don't see it that way.

    Nothing in life falls in your lap, you always have to get up and try a method to see if it works. That's what I'm doing with this post.
