    Hey fellas! grinding $$$s?
    i have been planning to write this tutorial since a long time but didnt got much time .. For thos who do not know me
    i am IMwizard a 21 year old internet wizard from INDIA .. i am doing internet marketing since a long time i failed a lot of times but finally i managed to make a steady income flow for myself .
    i shared my earnings here http://www.blackhatworld.com/blackhat-seo/making-money/537945-some-motivation-those-who-struggling.html
    and writing this tutorial for those who were curious to know how i did it :)

    WHAT I DO?
    i am selling leather bags on etsy . etsy.com is a market place for handmade and antique goods . it have got decent traffic and all the people looking for cheap stuff are moving to etsy ( ebay is no more cheap) . i use various techniques both black hat and white hat . to drive traffic to my listing ...
    how i did it ?
    1. i have been collecting methods and traffic sources since a long time . Recently i did a trip to a handicraft village near my city . there i found these beautiful bags been manufactured . i purchased a few samples and bought them home
    2. i started doing keyword research and found out that there is a guy selling similar bags on etsy . but he looked like a noob (writing 50 words titles and all)
    3. next i hired a photographer to click detailed pictures of the products and wrote down description myself.
    4. than i somehow managed to make a deal with this manufacturer . he agreed on providing me small orders
    5. i made my etsy shop . used proper titles. optimized my sales pitch.
    6. i analyzed the traffic and etsy search algo for a while (collected my data)

    than i raped etsy :D

    how i raped etsy ?
    • etsy ranks only one product per shop on the first page
    • keyword once in title , twice in description , once in tags
    • etsy ranks products based on amount of views and favorites
    • if a product is getting regular views and more than 3 sales in a day it is featured on etsy homepage
    • pinterest and reddit traffic have been a key for my methods
    • try to make a sales pitch which is provoking visitor to buy now ( my sales pitch sounds like a OTO)
    • Buy in wholesale and u will get higher profit margins
    • visit shopping malls and trade fairs for new product ideas
    • etsy sellers are buyers also
    • if u consider above points in mind you will find my secret sauce
    • interlink your listings ( this is really important )

    i think i have shared enough information (for sure there is more to it . but u will have to use your creativity to find it )
    if you have any questions i will answer here in the thread. please do not PM me ( i usually charge 50$ an hour for consultation )

    The image doesnt includes 3500$ worth of shipping charges (etsy doesnt show it in revenue )

    etsy is good ... just stick to it

    on an average 90$ per bag and my profit margin is 35-50$ per sale

    This is awesome. Great share and good information for people to start and be creative with it. $5k profit in 50 days is pretty dope!

    I can easily beat that price lol. Leather products are quite cheap in Kolkata. Let me check with a dealer.

    Thanks for the info!
    I've always been interested in selling on Etsy.
    I've tried, but found it hard, not being in the US.
    I might give it another try now :)

    While doing Etsy SEO research, I came accross
    a site called http://shopvaluecalculator.com
    They calculate your shop's worth.
    Of any shop in fact. And give lots of interesting stats.

    They have a list with most valuable shops.
    For some reason it says value:private.
    But if you click on the stats icon or enter
    the shop name in the in the search field,
    it displays stats and the value.

    Damn, some of these shops are worth millions
    and/or have thousands of sales!

    In my dreams :)

    Thanks again for the tutorial. I'm motivated again!

    One question:
    Did you send fake traffic to listings?
    If so, could you give some tips/advise.

    Any help appreciated. Thanks!
