    Hey guys !

    First of all - this is my first public journey (and post in BHW),
    I've just recently logged in and read some really interesting stuff and am really
    excited to be a part of the community.

    So this is my journey that will test if gig reselling can still be a (profitable) thing in 2015,
    I will use fiverr, and other clone services for my base products.
    My website would list only the highest ranking gigs, varying from 10-50$.

    My goal

    Test if fiverr reselling will work in May 2015.
    We know it was possible couple of years ago, so I would like to test how much it was saturated.
    To set a basic goal - I would like to, at least, cover my expenses on the project in the following 2 months.


    My plan of action

    Currently I am waiting for the namecheap->hostgator transfer sync,
    in the meantime I've installed wordpress.
    My plan of action for tomorrow:
    - Pick a theme
    - Install relevant plugins
    - Set up homepage, sales pages and categories
    - Set up an opt-in mail page
    - Search relevant sites for solo ad email blasting
    - Set up my own affiliate network

    My expenses

    * Namecheap domain - 5.16$
    * Hostgator hosting - 7.96$ (baby plan for 1 month)

    Stats


    1st day:
    Profit: -13.12$


    Comments, ideas, and good-lucks are highly welcomed and appreciated :)

    Reselling anything will always work, the hard part is finding the people interested in the service/product.

    Good luck OP.

    I was thinking about this method at one point just never got around to it. They have a software program that will go on CL and sort out clients for different niches that are looking for certain services. Btw I hope everything goes well..

    tokokipiani - The idea is to use targeted mailing groups, solo ads and advertisement
    and see if its enough to drive traffic

    3rd day update
    - Waiting for the 100 clicks I bought, let's see if we can drive traffic or get some sales
    - Added more products, I currently have just over 30 products ranging 15-80$
    - Did some category clean up

    Waiting for results !
