    Hello all,
    This will be my first journey and my first time trying to build a long-term company/website.
    Scroll down to view the journey! I REFUSE FOR THIS TO BE ONE OF THESE JOURNEY THREADS THAT FAIL WITHIN THE FIRST YEAR!

    Background Information


    I'm quite excited and I know I can be successful in it if I work really hard and stay humble.
    Let me tell you a bit about myself...
    • 18 Years Old
    • Located in the United States
    • SEO Understanding
    • Web Development Experience
    • I'm Broke

    Haha, Yes I'm broke. I realize this will require funding and this is how I plan to acquire money to fund this project - (I will not get a job no matter what.)
    • Buying/Selling (Flipping) Garage Sale Items
    • CPA (Blackhat Promotion)
    • Anything I can do to generate income

    _________________________________________________________________________

    Actual Journey

    Summary: Build a Classified website similar to USA4SALE and CRAIGSLIST.

    Promotion Tactics:
    • Find items on Facebook Groups - Add it on the site- and repost it in the group (Not only does the person get a sale from my website - but people will be curious about the website.)
    • Contact Facebook Group owners (Online Garage Sales, Buy/Sell Groups)
    • Add 10-20 Businesses a day and contact them saying we added their business and to go claim it.
    • SEO Optimize the Website.
    • Contact people posting items on Craigslist and tell them if they have trouble selling on CL to go post their item on my site.
    • Door to Door Advertising (Local Businesses)
    • HARD FUCKING WORK - Will be staying up till 4am and waking up at 9am every day to make this possible.
    Monetizing Tactics:
    • Create Websites for Businesses
    • Create Logos for Businesses
    • Feature your item
    • Premium Membership (Benefits == ????)
    • Google Adsense
    • Clickbank Products
    • MORE TO COME...


    [11/26/16 To Do List:]
    - Think of a Creative Name
    - Register the Domain
    - Use Flynax as my Classifieds Script
    - Create Social Medias for the Website


    _______________________________________________________________________

    Anyhow, I'm really excited to get started with this it's time to build something for the long term.
    I have about $2,000 left in my bank account and I'll make this work out.

    Hey op,

    My older son made a "living" flipping like this. Your approach is much more advanced, but he simply bought and sold physical items.

    He bought from garage sales, flea markets, Craigslist, eBay, etc. He even passed out flyers throughout the neighborhood.

    His biggest scores came from garage sales. He would try to contact them the day before they started. You would be surprised at how many people would let him comb through their stuff before anyone else saw it.

    His specialty was video games and electronics. For a kid, he made a killing at it. I would guess that at his peak he was making a profit of around $1k a week.

    Life is really one big flip. You try to buy low and sell high, whether you are dealing with physical goods/services/your time.

    Long story short, your journey interests me. I will be watching this and hope to read a success story soon.
