    Hey!
    I'm running an e-commerce site which sells e-cigarettes and accessories via dropshipping from China. Got a very good and thrustworthy contact in China with good prices.
    Currently getting around ~30 visits and 1 sale daily. Profit is around 500$ in a month.
    I'm not much experienced with SEO yet, so I guess this can be scaled up a lot, so I'm looking for a partner to boost it up and split the profits.
    Send me a PM if you're experienced in SEO and think you can master it. Members with a good reputation and some experience in the e-cigarette niche preferred.

    PS: I won't reveal my source, at least at the beginning, so don't even try to trick me :)

    Sent you a PM.

    PS: Probably should have posted the thread in the JV section, but I've not yet 50 posts together. Hope it's ok :)

    Hey! Thanks for the offer, but I'm dealing with dropshipping only :)



    As for the whole deal, I'm mainly interested in partners who promote per country. So if you think your country has a good market for e-cigarettes and you are able to promote it, then let me know. The site is already set up and works since months and the products are really cheap.
    I'm especially interested in someone from Greece.

    Oh, and Finland is taken :)

    We do dropshipping too but I must admit that you may get better deals. There is only one way to find out though. PM me for our website and have a look at it yourself.

    You are SPOT ON with Finland and Greece. You have NO IDEA how many sales we get from Finland and Greece EACH day! We have a retail site too and US sales has always been No.1 for us but Finland and Greece are catching up rapidly.

    PM sent :)
    Indeed, Greece seems to be huge. From the sales I'm currently getting 1/3 are from Greece.

    I don't have experience in that niche, but any niche is the same for me.
    Keywords are keywords and backlinks are backlinks...

    Just replied to a couple of PMs.
    The reasons why I'm mainly looking for partners from specific countries are:
    1. it's easier to split the profit
    2. campains for specific countries have probably a better effect
    3. I'm interested in getting the product information translated, as the english of most customers (especially Greece) is terrible :)

    And the reason for required experience with e-cigarettes is mainly related to keyword research. Sure, if someone is well experienced in SEO and keyword research it compensates it to some extent :)

    Hey!

    A little update on the thread.

    Average monthly profit for 1 of the current partners / countries: $9000 after split.
    Average profit per conversion: $40
    Statistics are based on January and February.

    Anyone interested to join? I'm only looking for partners who will do SEO for specific countries, no general worldwide SEO. Ads, forum posts, landing pages - does not matter.
    I also need some support when the target language is other than english or german.

    Send me a PM if you're interested and your country has some potential in this area. Good SEO skills are essential. Some general knowledge about e-cigarettes also helps.

    I'll provide more details in PMs when needed.

    Im currently working on a project and sourcing/qualifying dropshipping suppliers over the next 12 months. So while not officially launched, the site will be SEO'd + aged in Mr G over that period.
    Primary markets will be US & UK, followed by the rest of the EU & Canada.

    How this typically works (if we accept your product) is that we agree a discounted rate on your list price and place daily orders with yourself.
    Therefore this could run alongside any other arrangements you make, but remember it wont be launched for 12 months(ish).

    What delivery method do you use? (e.g. EMS, DHL, HK Post, China Post, etc)
    I ask because we have had problems with tracking China Post previously and we require some form of tracking on orders.

    If you are interested then please PM a link to your site/product(s) for an initial review :)
