    Hello everyone,
    I'm a full time third year ME college student from the US.
    I've lurked around BHW for nearly two years now and finally decided to give myself some motivation to increase my earnings and keep them consistent. I used to work full time and go to college part time until I learned how to profit from the Diablo III auction house after the game was released. I made enough money with it to stop working at the time and continue going to school full time. As many of you gamers know, people stopped playing the game and my money making slowed down. After trying a few methods on the forum; I used information I read here, my knowledge from making money on Diablo III and my previous knowledge of eBay to begin making money on eBay, drop-shipping items. Although, I don't do the typical drop-shipping technique I have fine-tuned my method to be a sure-free source of income that nets me around $1000 per month, sometimes less, sometimes more.

    In the past 3 months I also began CPA as an affiliate on CPAGrip. I love the network and have learned tons so far in my time with them. I made $100 in my first few weeks with youtube and did really well in January making near $1000. Here is a screenshot of my best day there:

    Recently, I have had trouble making anywhere near this much from CPA, but I will continue to work hard.

    I also have a few other methods that I work with from time to time and will quote those if they are used!

    Due to my difficult school work I haven't been able to replicate anything near those earnings. The point of this journey is to recreate $100/day from all of my methods combined. For me to feel like I reached this goal, I need to accomplish this feat 7 days in a row.

    I know it's possible, it's just a matter of time until it happens. Normally, this wouldn't be impossible, but I spend 50 hours+ per week studying and spending time at my university. It will be a challenge.

    My goals include improving my profits from eBay, sustaining income from CPA and adding any other methods I might come across during my journey.

    Thanks for reading!

    I have multiple methods. Sometimes I use Youtube to promote, sometimes I use facebook and sometimes my own methods that I've developed. Although, none of them have been great lately.

    I've been lurking around BHW for a little over a month now. I began trying to earn online 12 years ago as a teenager by designing shirts to sell on Cafepress. Since then I've tried different affiliate program, article writing, blogging, etc but lack the know-how or finances to compete with good SEO. I've decided I'm gonna be dropshipping on Ebay as my next venture. I'd very much appreciate any advice or points of reference you could offer. $1000 a month is what I'd like to get to ideally to supplement my income.

    As far as eBay goes for me, customer service is important. Ship items as fast as you say you will, help them ASAP when a problem arises and answer any questions they ask. That alone is probably the biggest reason for my success on eBay. Of course, you also need a reliable drop-shipper.

    I can't refer my own, but I'm sure you can find something if you search around the forum. Just do you research before you jump into things.

    Good luck with your journey, looks like you know what you're doing. Will follow closely and hopefully learn a few things from your eBay ventures as I'm looking to start something similar during the summer. Also keep at them studies, I know it's tough, I'm a Uni student studying Mathematics myself :)
