    Hi first I'd like to thank all BHW members for creating such interesting and relevant content to this site. My current situation would not have been without your help. I am truly grateful.

    So on to my question. I currently buy and sell used iPhones from Craigslist and re sell on eBay. Everything is going great and I'm making good money. I decided to build a home office and do this full time. My predicament is I'm slowly running out of supply, that is iPhones. I post professionally made ads on Craigslist daily and even did flyers around town but not much is coming from it. I am located back east where there is multiple colleges nearby so I'm thinking try that next.

    So does anyone have any ideas to promote my iPhone buying business? Guerilla marketing techniques? Social Media? I'll do anything I just need more product to buy. Thanks

    Facebook often has groups for buying and selling (in my local area anyway). Might be worth checking those out.

    Everyone has already sold their iPhone for the new iPhone 5. You will start making money soon.

    FB ads would be your best choice as far as I think.

    I actually didn't mean to start you own page.

    Just putting "sell swap and buy" in facebook for example brought up 8 pages locally that people go to looking to sell phones and all sorts of other junk. I just meant to post an ad on one of those pages saying that you're looking to buy iPhones.

    If you are only buying functioning iPhones you could possibly start to buy broken ones and learn to fix them yourself which you can easily learn from countless youtube vids then flip the refurbished phone. This is assuming this is not what you are doing already
