    The title says it all...

    My friend set up me with a great script, and from there I mimicked him tantalized by what he was making monthly. Obviously I ended up making no where near what he makes, but it's still fun. And now I want to expand. I don't even actually have the script because I just gave him my referral link and he imbedded it in a file etc, but I want to start making money fully on my own.

    Where should I start? There's no real "start here" section. And of course I don't want to spend my precious cash...

    Advice please!

    Dropshipping is a very lucrative way, I make 1-2k a month, only selling 9 products on eGay.
    Also you won't need anything besides some time, auction/product page skills and the keyword for dropshipping: RELIABLE & GOOD DISTRIBUTERS.

    There's a main forum dedicated to making money, you'll find MANY useful and unusual stickies and such.
    I personally monitor and are active on the Dropshipping and eBay subforum.
    Dropship: http://www.blackhatworld.com/blackhat-seo/f68-dropshipping-wholesale-hookups/
    Ebay: http://www.blackhatworld.com/blackhat-seo/f69-ebay/
    Or alternatively click "Main Forums" on your left, and scroll down until you hit the "Making Money" main forum, and you'll find what's relevant to your challenge :)

    I hope you stick around, and hope to run into you again! :D

    Aww. I love the community here! I am used to eBay (or since I'm learning, eGay), and familiar with the idea of dropshipping, but have never put the two together. I'll browse. And I'll definitely be sticking around!!

    Thanks

    No problem. Well the reason that we call it eGay or feeBay is because of the fees and poor customer support. ;)

    Just remember that you won't just get handed out the best dropshippers, you got to look for them yourself.
    I wouldn't just hand out my primary supplier, so i guess that it's the fewest of us there would :)

    The easiest way is to choose a product that's not really sold. You probably won't get long with iPhone 4's because of the high demand, and the equivalent high supply, so it's hard to get a part of the marked (with profit).
    E.g. choose like a special new kind of sneakers which is very hot in the young community, then keep looking for a cheap and reliable distributer.
    Remember that it's probably gonna take A LOT of time, it did for me. But it's that worth with the extra 2k a month :D

    Hope this helps, else just browse the forums, there's a lot of wise people staying here.

    But of course it helps! And I'm not one to be afraid of hard work. I'd rather spend 10 hour days beind my computer than work at CVS again, so I'm motivated baby!

    And now, to begin...
