Quick rant about my project about self balancing scooters. Maybe someone can learn from my experience for similar projects in the future. I moved into other country where the ''hoverboards'' trend had not hit in yet. As I saw how it was popular in United States And In Europe I thought it would be popular here too. So I thought of ways for how I would promote it. I came up with: -Set up a website for it and rank for SEO (No competition keywords) -Cruise around city with a hoodie where is my website's name on the back. Ask people if they want to try the hoverboard and either sell one from my car on the spot for cheaper or give a discount coupon. -Hire my friends for promotion work with a hoverboard and personal discount coupons for comission. -Put my website's logos into the boards. -Set up fb and IG accounts and promote them with a free give away. I was happy with the plan so I went to look for a seller. I liked alibaba and dhgate. I ended up ordering 2 test pieces from dhgate from gold seller and 97% good ratings. One of the hoverboards weren't working and that got me bit unsure about the future models. If I would set a pre-order option and get 100 orders and 30% of them would have something wrong with them I would be screwed. I had a chat with the seller and he wanted me to send videos of the hoverboard problem and another one where I tried he's way of fixing it. He didn't answer anymore and the refund option closed. I thought that I have to change my strategy. Instead of me selling these hoverboards I could just sell the visitors for my competitiors after ranking. (Another option was to sell covers for the hoverboards as they get scratches very easily). I read a good amount of SEO and created articles and web 2.0s and today I managed to burn all the web 2.0s. It was my first try with SEO so I'm happy to know what to not do next time. So now I have two hoverboards. One working which I barely use and one broken which I can't figure out what to do with. The website is worthless now as well. What did I learn? When ordering something check when the refund option closes and set up a last day notice on your calendar. Never order in bulk. Always get the test units first. Couple things about SEO.
