    Hi all!

    I've been lurking the past year or so, not spending much time on here other than reading different methods, and soaking up knowledge when I can.

    First off I have ZERO experience in IM. I'm hoping to gain knowledge and learn from many of you, so thank you in advance! :cool:

    So, I finally decided to create a username and post about my journey.

    I'm starting out by testing the eBay/Amazon drop shipping method within a specific niche. I purchased a domain on GoDaddy, created a quick site using their online builder. I have not purchased hosting yet as I am currently researching on how to drive traffic to my eBay listings using my niche site. I have yet to decide / plan on how to implement my niche site (reviews, blog, etc).

    Tips, tricks, suggestions, and/or criticism highly welcome!

    Thanks for stopping by!

    I'll update this thread as my journey continues...

    All the best for your journey. Everyday a new method to generate traffic to ebay and amazon listings is explained here on BHW.. Check them, try them and keep the community posted about your experiments

    Update: Made my first sale today!
    Put some time and effort into crafing my eBay listing, and within 8hrs of it being listed, my item sold. I made a 11% profit margin. What should I be aiming for with the profit margin %?? Is 11% too low, or good for starting out?

    So buyer hasn't left feedback and my eBay account has 0% feedback.

    I've had the account since 2007 and had 100% prior but stopped selling over a year ago. PP is holding my money for 2 weeks. Hopefully I get it released, if not then it's a spendy lesson I guess...
