    Hey guys,
    So as the title stats, I have started my dropshipping journey. All is going well so far, sent of my documentation to be verified to buy on AE and hoping to hear back from them soon so I can start shipping out my orders to my customers.

    Dropshipping store is going quite well - made about €150 in the last 2 weeks now, all going good - in talks with collaborating with a medium sized youtuber now (60k) so hopefully thats what I need to push me over the edge and get the ball rolling here for real. Instagram currently sitting at about 2500 followers in under 2 weeks.

    Basically, I know it might be early - but I want to start looking to new projects and stuff already. I have heard adsense can be quite good if done well, as can affiliate marketing and a few other things that have caught my attention.

    I still have my part time job so I have money to invest, and a heck of a lot of time - once exams are over I am basically free for the summer.

    My goal is to reach €1k profit per month, through as many methods as I need (not saying solely has to be through drop shipping etc) so I am starting to snoop around now to see what else you guys could recommend I start looking into.

    Adsense seems to be the most highly recommended thing, but I am not sure - would like to hear what advice you gurus have for me.

    Im not desperate for hand holding or people to tell me EXACTLY what to do, a few words of advice telling me to go for adsense or avoid affiliate marketing is perfectly fine with me, or a kick in the arse telling me to keep scaling my existing business.

    Thanks in advance.

    if you found a product that's not bad, try to send traffic from facebook ads also, read a little about it and spend $5-$10/day on each ad for a few days to see if it's converts for you.

    What are your traffic sources?
    Also I suggest you do affiliate marketing instead of adsense, or both! Good job and keep it up! Good luck with exams :)

    That's what I am planning. I've done a bit of reading up on it before and I think will start experimenting with it soon. Hopefully can start ramping this up even more.

    At the moment it's solely Instagram! So 100% free traffic! I'm going to try get it up to about 1000 visitors per month so can make sure it's converting properly.

    What exactly is adsense if you don't mind me asking? I know on YouTube it's to do with people viewing ads on videos but what is it on sites? To do with clicks?

    Thanks so much man, I'm sure I'll be fine with them! Then can focus on this ;)

    Good job how did you grow your instagram? Automatically with bot?

    Adsense includes all advertising like banners on webpages, advertisement before a youtube video. Yeah, you are right! When people click on the ad you will get a small commision.

    Affiliate marketing will probably get you more money per click.

    Awh man I wish so... It was all manual!
    I'm going to wait til I make a few more sales before I invest in MP or the likes :)

    Hm that is interesting alright! So it would mean putting banners and stuff on my website?

    Affiliate marketing is selling on other people's behalf isn't it? Does a sale have to be made or so I get paid per click?

    150 every 2 weeks is not mastering at all. You still have a lot of work to do before switching to another SEO career.

    Mastered was probably the wrong word.
    I'm starting to get results with and I don't want it to stop here.

    I'd like to start another "stream", so instead of being solely focused on my store I can start building something else at the same time.

    So basically 5 months down the line if the store fails I have something else to fall back on.

    Maybe its the wrong mindset to have - but makes sense to me.
