The internet has become one of the biggest moneymakers in the world. Almost everyone alive uses it in some way or form. Some people make money on the internet, use it to entertain themselves or even just create something with it. With the rapid increase of the internet, there have been more ways and opportunities for people to make money. One of the biggest and most successful ways around is called drop shipping. Drop shipping is one of the newest and rising ways to make money sitting form your couch. Everyone loves the idea because you are able to make money without even seeing or shipping the item. In this review, I am going to tell you all about my life and exactly how I go about using drop shipping.
When I first started off at college, I had absolutely no money. I was just like everyone else and it sucked. I went through so many different jobs I truly don’t even know where to begin to explain my journey. So many horrible 9-5’s and other shitty college jobs. I would come home everyday and be absolutely exhausted. I needed a change so bad. I was in a few computer classes at the time so I was pretty good with the internet. I was capable of getting around and knew how to buy and sell.
One night after school I decided that I was done with the horrible jobs that didn’t pay me anything, so I decided that I was going to go all in and try out drop shipping. What else did I have to lose. Drop shipping is one of the newest and biggest trends out there so there are so many videos and articles out there that will help you figure out what you need to do to be successful. So for a few months every day after school I started to study and figure out how I could make money with drop shipping. I knew it wasn’t going to be easy but it could also change my life if I did it the right way. I was determined to become something better. I was determined to make more money than the horrible restaurant jobs I had at school.
The studying aspect of drop shipping was definitely not fun, but having the information can be really helpful so I suggest you put in a good amount of time if you are actually serious about dropshipping. You don’t want to blow a bunch of your time and hard-earned cash. I watched hundreds of videos and read almost every article on the internet since I was going to be doing so much drop shipping. After a few months of preparing, I was ready to start and change my life.
Dropshipping is a grind. That is the best way that I can explain it. You are going to get out what you put into it, and that is a fact. If you work harder than all of the other drop shippers on the internet then you are going to make some serious money and give yourself the best chance to change your life.
I started out with dropshipping from Amazon to eBay. This is probably one of the most common combos that people use when they do drop shipping. They are the two biggest buying and selling platforms in the world and there are so many people that could buy your items. I started off by making a huge list of items on Amazon that were selling for more on eBay. It is a slow and very boring process but it pays off once you actually start listing them. I used my parents eBay and Amazon because they already had some feedback on them so that I wasn’t starting out completely new and naked. That is super important to note: People don’t want to buy from sellers with minimal feedback so if you can find a way to somehow get accounts with the feedback you will be way ahead of the game.
Once I got a decent list together I started to list all of the items I found on eBay. I decided to go with cooking utensils for my first set of items because there are hundreds of them and it is easy to find good deals on them. I put together a list of 20 items to start with started to list them. The listing process can take a while and if you don’t have the money to pay someone then you will have to do all of it yourself.
I found a variety of different items and price to see what started to sell and what didn’t. I made sure to only list items that I think could make $5-6 on. The listing is the most important part. You have to make sure that the item is listed on the same category that people will search for. It took me a few days to get my first sale but 5 days after I listed all of my items I made my first sale. It was the best day of my life. I made a $10 profit from sitting on my couch. All I had to do it put in the seller’s address from eBay to Amazon and I was done. Money in the bank.
Fast forward to today and my life is completely different. I live off almost all of my drop shipping salary. I am making such good money and my lifestyle is 100x better than before. I get to work and list items when I want. I have been able to bring a few people on my team to help make everything go faster. I have covered many areas of the market and have expanded to have thousands of items on my accounts. I am so proud of how much time and work I have put into my drop shipping business.
Before I wrap up my little review, I want to give you a run down of what my lifestyle is like now that I am a drop shipper. This could easily be your life too if you follow what I instruct of you:
So here is a day of my life in which I have been drop shipping successfully for almost 10 years now. First off, I get up later than all of my friends around 10 or 11 AM everyday. After that I spend about an hour finding items from amazon and other places in which I can list for a higher price on eBay. After that I have lunch and then relax by my pool for most of the day. Right around 4-5PM is when I start to fill orders from the previous day. Everyday is different. Sometimes I have 10 orders sometimes I have 50. This can be a long process but definitely gets easier as time and time goes on so stay with it,
Then right before I went to bed I wrap up any other work that I have to do whether that is to drop off packages, reply to messages or whatever else. For the most part, that is my schedule each and everyday. I don’t have to work hardly at all and I make a really good amount of money. I have free time to hang out with my friends and continue to live the rest of my life. This can easily be you too if you put the time and effort into drop shipping.
Drop shipping was one of the biggest factors that changed my life and I wanted to write about that so you consider doing it yourself if you wanted to make some extra money without having to stress and work for someone else. I haven’t had a boss, gone into work, or followed a schedule for almost the last 10 years now and that is all thanks to drop shipping.
The one biggest piece of advice that I can give you when it comes to drop shipping is that you need to work, work work and then be patience. If you put the time and effort into it, you are going to see results at some point or another, I can promise you that. Hard work really pays off in this game. I really hope this article on my lifestyle now that I am a drop shipper was helpful for you. I made sure to be as explanatory as possible so that you could find some good and helpful information. If you are interested in drop shipping, I recommend reading other reviews on other peoples lives so that you can get an even better idea of what you have to do in order to be successful. Drop shipping took me a few years to really get the hang of it so you need to stick with it. You can’t get mad if you don’t see results directly off the bat. Thank you again for spending the time to read my article and good luck on your own drop shipping journey!
