    Truth is last year I grossed $90,000 and profited about $45,000 after deducting everything down to my irrigation in my grandmas tomb, just kidding she still a love and kicking ;)

    My method you ask? We'll I sell clothing online. Many people do this only difference is I actually produce the garments which takes out the middle man therefore allowing me to generate larger profits while staying competitive with pricing.

    I think I've tried all kinda of methods but never one full blown at the end of the day I generated bulk of my
    Money from eBay, etsy and amazon.
    Which as of yesterday I'm officially suspended from all 3 (been suspended from eBay and amazon for over a year I think). Reason for suspension? Late shipments, I got lazy. Negative feed back. Also in some instances copyright infringement violations, and things of that nature.

    From all the failure that came from success I've learned a lot and also noticed something I should
    have BEEN noticed... That the only steady income generator is the only one thing I truly control and that is my ecommerce store which is where I'll be focusing all my energy since I've been kicked out off everywhere basically, although I'm also doing some stealth accounting of course, can't just leave all that money on the table can I? Of course not.

    In any event, I'll hopefully document how to get to my goal of 180k for 2014 and hopefully you guys can help me get there!!!

    Plan of attack?! I call it the "Everything and their mother" blast.

    1st I plan on adding product to the site itself which could have 1000s of things and maybe I got little under 100.

    2nd is to set up a nice SEO campaign for the site. I've ranked for profitable keywords without any off-site SEO aka with the proper system I Should be good.


    I basically plan on following matthew woodward's approach, which I actually Came across it elsewhere but his is basically step by step. Haven't decided what tools I'll be getting yet, any suggestions?

    This is the plan, i put it down on paper to get memorize it better:

    3rd Here is were the experimenting begins. Basically I want to hit social media hard since I've had success with it by just using Instagram, back in the pre instaget days. I used to basically get sales just by following people based on hashtags.

    Basically I want to take a similar approach but all over IG, twitter, tumblr, Pinterest, YouTube, maybe FB.

    4th Email marketing and all the extra stuff.

    The overall goal of this Jurney is to diversify where my income or traffic is coming from. Forget the eggs in different baskets, I want to
    put each egg in different stores.

    Hopefully that will lead to (more)success!

    Budget for software is $1,000
    I plan on getting:

    99% sure:

    FCS Networker $37/mo
    GSA Search engine ranker
    GSA captchas breaker
    GSA SEO indexer
    Kontent Machine


    Any suggestions for:
    Instagram?
    Twitter?
    YouTube?
    Tumblr?
    Facebook?

    Already got:
    Instagram mega bot (which never really used)
    Pinpioneer (got it like 1-2 years ago, never used it, hope it still works)
    Scrape box, another one I never really used.
    VPS 1GB I think I do plan on using desktop too.
    10 proxies from squid proxies might get more if needed

    Still trying to figure this out, can you guys help?

    In my opinion, you should be able to reach that goal. If you do not mind, I would like to ask you that how are you handling the competition from other online sellers. In my country, I have seen that even the biggest players in online retail are surviving on the cash of investors. Even then most of them are in loss.

    Thats one of my little advantages. I have created a process to were i make the garments after i get a sale. On a 1 on 1 base. I also live close to a wholesale distributor that sells me 1 piece at a case price. So i dont have to keep unecessary inventory with me. Every day i make a list of the new orders. Place an order for the garments and get the rest ready. Get the order out in 2-3 days.
