I can learn marketing and stuff like that. I will try Amazon too but I also want to make a website and sell some T-Shirts.

The business model is too easy and very rewarding to not take the opportunity. It takes me about 1 hour of work a day, once I have my website might take me 3-6 but that’s still ok.

I guess what I'm getting at is anytime you see everyone flocking to something, it's probably not what you want to get into. People are flocking to POD tee shirt stores and Ali Express dropshipping.

There's tons of ways to get money, don't just follow what every Youtuber is saying as most are trying to pitch you a course and make more money selling courses than they actually do with their Ali Express Dropshipping or POD business they are supposedly making money with.

If your looking for some hustles I'm a huge fan of affiliate marketing and its wide open tons of opportunities, you can start something for no money, if it doesn't work out move on to the next niche.

There's companies out there that you can get a graphic design team to make unlimited designs per month, freelance on upwork, fiverr, craigslist, charge $100 per logo or whatever it may be, two or three jobs covers your nut and everythign else is profit.

My point is I see many people flcoking to a handful of ways to make money and oftentimes these things aren't really catered to what a persons skillsets may be but they want to get into it because its what they see everyone else doing.

I'm sure you have some skillset or knowledge base you could monetize without having to learn something. It sounds like from the marketing and brand building your a beginner and there's going to be a big learning curve. Maybe you make wood boats, maybe you make pottery, whatever it may be you can turn that activity into a course, sell it on udemy or skillshare or teachable.

I just think people need to cater to what their skills are as opposed to trying to learn a completely new set of skills. Just my opinion. I'm toying with the idea of starting a lifestyle business but unless I'm gonna live the brand I'm not gonna press forward so really debating about it

I'm sorry but I disagree. Even tho it does not align with my skillsets, I still believe I can do it better than most people. If I find people flocking to a certain "Business Model" that means there is money to be made.

I never bought a course and never will.

I'm 100% certain I can do it better than others, and I still haven't launched my website for my new niche. I am partnering up with a friend to help me with social media, designs, emails marketing, fb ads, etc...

In my niche most sellers are pricing their T-Shirts at 30-35 dollars. I see them all using Bella-Canvas T- Shirts.

I'm currently using American Apparel from Printful, costs 13.95-14.85 and I sell for 30 dollars but about 26 dollars after sale. My Profit is not bad, I charge 5-10 dollars shipping and only pay 2-3 dollars shipping. So I make on average 12-17 dollars profit on each T-Shirt depending on the discount I'm offering. If we deduct FB ads, CPP 5-10 USD then I will make a profit of 2-7 dollars on each shirt at FIRST!. Once I have a big enough email list and start email marketing my margins will increase by a tonne. AND once I gain popularity I will increase my prices, it takes time but I see so much money down the line.

So at first you are correct that it doesn't seem worth anyone's time, but when I see people making millions then I know I can't just let it go.

I also agree that I should do other businesses on the side, but I've been learning about POD/Dropshipping and FB ads lately and don't want my effort to go to waste. I need to make enough money then start working on other businesses.

I really like the Amazon Merch but it will take some time.

I'm also going to start a lifestyle business, I see instagram models become millionaires via this method. I just need to learn branding and marketing first, which I'm doing with my POD business.

Thanks for the advice!

Just one comment in regards to your last couple sentences. You said you see Instagram models making millions. Unless you got a fat ass and some nice tits your probably not going to do as well on Instagram as them lol, it's the unfortunate reality of being a dude.

That said the models are the influencers getting paid by the brands. Your the one paying the models who are getting rich, you aren't the model getting rich. Just wanted to make sure you weren't getting things twisted. I compare it to the old saying about the gold rush, not many miners struck it rich but the guys selling pick shovels and axes did.

I would compare this whole influencer marketing thing to that. There's a million fucking kids starting Ali dropshipping businesses, POD businesses, all are paying these Instagram influencers and models. The models are getting rich because it doesn't matter if these brands succeed or not they are still getting their $300 for the plug on Instagram, very few of these brands are actually having success.

By no means trying to talk shit or disuade you, if this winds up not being for you or fails your out a couple hundred bucks, definitely worth the shot.

I’ve researched and studied alot of instagram models, and how they made their money. It’s a very simple process.

I know I don’t have an amazing booty or D+ cups but in this world there is a huge demand for girls with the assets mentioned above. The lifestyle brand I’m going to create is going to teach men to get these top models. I know its already done by a million other dudes out there, but I bring something new to the table that I’m sure will cater to a specific niche.

Anyways, I believe making money is a numbers game. Try everything, take risks, I just need 1 successful business. That’s all it takes.

So I was in the Facebook group “Cener Shopify Mastermind”, he was mentioned before by WeekendCasanova.

I called that guy out and was banned from the group for speaking the truth


After thinking about it, selling dreams is much more lucrative than selling products (dropshipping or POD)

What do you guys think? Photoshop some sales numbers, affiliate links all over the place, youtube videos, and cash in on all the nerds trying to make a quick buck online? Did anyone try it?

Aviel you gotta change your thinking man! You call this lying & selling dreams... while Hustlers like the guy you called out & MJ Demarco call this the Fastlane aka creating wealth exponentially!

Of course this Dude made more selling his seminar & bootcamp then actual shirts... but he still had the knowledge & know how to amassing a 34 000 facebook group. Can't fake That!

How big is your Facebook group? Sorry to call you out like that... but when you attack a Producer and involuntarily attack his Brand for no reason... I get irritated! Been keeping tabs on this thread...and you stood out... for all of the wrong reasons! "I have never bought a course and never will is one of your saying I believe"

Unwilling to learn from others... yet believes his "lifestyle brand will bring something unique to the table" Man good luck in business... cause you'll need it! Photoshop sales figure!!!?? Get a 9 to 5 Homie! You ain't built for this Grind!

I think this is dumb and money chasing behavior.

Why don't you try helping people?

This whole topic is very ineresting to me. I totally agree with you lets give props to guys for being able to build a following, but honestly most people pitching courses should be teaching people how to build a following or how to teach courses and not how to sell POD shirts or dropship because most really aren't doing that. All their knowledge and all their real world success is in the area of selling a course.

I'll take Tanner Fox the Youtuber for example. Another Amazon seller named Phil Covington basically called him out for this. This kid has never sold more than maybe 4-6 Amazon products in his life. None of them were very succesful and all were pretty much well duh type products, the same shit every dropshipper is selling.

When called out this kid basically first said that wans't his account he set it up for a teenage neighbor and later claimed his account was hacked so he just abandoned it. You don't abandon a successful Amazon store you've spent money building, especially if its making tens of thousands per month.

I'm not even saying the course is garbage as this guy basically credits it with helping him get his start but this kid basically just took a course, learned it enough to rehash it and parrot the info back out and resell it.

http://www.philcovington.com/index.php/t...u-exposed/

What's kind of ironic is apparently his personal branding course isn't selling nearly as well as his Amazon course which is really ironic since that is actually waht he should be teaching about.

I agree with you information and knowledge and education is incredibly important but it's also critical your a smart buyer and don't buy every course on the market because 90% plus are pure bullshit.

I posted this link above but one of the best course sellers online teaching the masses about selling on Amazon has sold about 4 products in his entire life, 3 were total failures and one made maybe $700 a month for a brief time. Nothing wrong with $700 per month but hardly the 30k per month this guy claims to make.

It sounds like your saying throw your integrity out the window and go where the money is which is selling bullshit. That's totally fine and I agree with you there but not everyone is looking to go that route and also to some extent in the long run people who solve actual problems and provide value will rise to the top and people shooting fish at the bottom of the barrel and suckering the dumbest buyers will fizzle out, although you are correct many will make milions in the process

Well first of all, I would never buy a course on Dropshipping/POD because everything is available for free online. This has nothing to do with wanting to learn or not.

Every single successful person, business, ideology, religion, etc.. is selling an idea or a dream. Whether we agree with them or not! Top Brands put insane prices on their products because they are selling "You are better than everyone else" dream. Donald Trump sold the dream Making America Great Again! Justin Trudeau sold the dream of a multicultural, liberal, feminist society to gain political power. The two biggest religions have over 3 billion followers, and people die, go to war and give everything they have for the dream being sold to them by religious men. Again, every dream sold can be amazing from one perspective and a con from another.

These drop-shipping "Gurus" just took advantage of people wanting to escape the rat race and make some real money. I did not call Justin Cener out, I don't give a fuck if he's legit or not, I was just informing other members that there is a better business model and if they are willing to pay 997 dollars to learn to make money, then better spend it on a business model that does require some skill instead of POD where they can find everything they need from a couple of hours of research on the internet.

I wrote that post because I just wanted to open their eyes and at the same time see his reaction. I also wanted to write it down and see the opinions of others.

P.S. I like POD as a side business, I've seen people making over 270K profit a year in my niche.

P.S. I like POD as a side business, I've seen people making over 270K profit a year in my niche.

Do you personally know someone making 270k per year with POD or did someone just report that as their income.

We can argue all day about if POD or dropshipping can really make money, I think we can all agree pretty much 99% of the guys claiming to make money aren't making money and the ones who really are are the exception rather than the norm.

I think lots of people go into POD or dropshipping expecting to make tens of thousands a month and the reality of it is if you can squeeze out a couple hundo a month your probably doing better than most.

In terms of selling courses and stuff obviously selling a lifestyle and selling a dream is an aspect of everything we buy from liquor to cars to clothes. Its a bit more see through so to speak when it comes to courses and things like that than buying a car but that element is always present.

It sounds like you realize there is money in that arena but maybe have an ethical or moral problem with appealing to that audience and essentially taking advantage of them or playing on their dreams.

While I do think there's a lot of bullshitters out there at the same time I have to give them credit because it's not easy to do what they are doing either. It's easy to say okay throw out some crazy made up numbers of money you made, copy a course and start marketing it, majority of people who try this will probably fail at it so do have to give some credit to these guys.

Like you said info is out there for free, you don't have to pay for it. Some people like having all the info organized in one place so you don't have to watch 100 different youtube videos half of which will be really shitty and a waste of time. That said I don't personally think that organization and curation of that info is worth $5,000. If someone wants to take a course there's all types of shit on Udemy and ohter sites like that for $10.

One funny thing, that link I posted above where the guy calls out Tanner Fox for being on bullshit, he's also selling "money making amazon products" for like $300 a pop so while what he's saying is true about Tanner, he's really no better himself.

I do POD myself and I make a couple hundred per month, my best month ever was probably $800. I'm not a fantastic designer and I dont put a ton of time or effort into it but I can't complain about the money.

For someone to make 270k a year however that seems challenging. Figure POD isn't great margins so we'll say your making $10 per shirt which probably means your selling shirts for $25, that means you have to sell 27,000 shirts per year. That comes to 2250 shirts per month which comes to 75 shirts per day. I know a guy doing these types of sales numbers on amazon merch but he's not making $10 per shirt more like $2 per shirt, but the only reason he can do that is Amazon traffic. If your doing this throuogh shopify or etsy your gonna be paying a good buck on FB ads and Etsy ppc which is going to inflate your costs which means your going to have to sell even more shirts than the 75 per day we broke it down to earlier

The individual making 270k net profit a year is a she. She sells her T-Shirts for 30-32 dollars, her instagram shop page has 190k+ followers, her shops Facebook page has 120k followers, she even has a group for her shop on facebook with over 2.5k members. She a digital marketing expert and branded her shop very well. We are in the same niche but she’s killin it!! I still havent setup my site tho.

Some dropshipping stores make over a million in sales a year and they have products from Aliexpress. Look at some of the shops being sold here and you’ll know what im talking about:

I personally find it really hard to believe these Ali Express dropshipping businesses do well. My eCommerce business has about a 56% repeat customer rate. That means that more than half my sales are basically freebies ie I don't have to run FB ads or pay Adsense to get them. We all know its cheaper to keep a customer than it is to get a new customer. When Ali Express products take best case scenario 2 weeks, worst case scenario 2 months to arrive I can't imagine anyone is comming back. I know with fidget spinners and some of that you can make a killing with just one time customers because the fad is so big but outside of that I find it really hard to believe people can make that much money with the Ali Dropshipping thing considering margins are typically low, chargebacks and returns high and few to no returning customers.

If I was going to dropship I'd find say a company in Calfornia who sells CBD oil, just an example I wouldn't necessarily do that but basically a product that's harder to find. I would contact them say hey I want you to dropship for me, I'll charge x you charge me y, everyday I'll send you an excel sheet with my orders process them for me and I'll square up with you at the end of the week or I'll prepay $2,000 so I have some working inventory with you. My orders would ship out within 24 hours, I have a unique product, I actually have a relationship with the people who are dropshipping, I'm not just ordering form Ali so if ther's issues I have a contact person. To me that is how to run a real and professional dropshipping business, not by selling $1.60 ali express jewerly for $24.

Maybe I'm wrong but thats my take on the whole dropshipping thing

RE: Ryan's 5-6 Figure/Month Online Money Making Datasheet/Journey
So I found some influencers on instagram but they are on the lower side when it comes to the number of followers. For example:
1- 26K followers and 6.22% engagement rate
2- 22.5K followers and 5.5% engagement rate

Would you work with them? I wont pay them but just send them a free shirt. Or should I be targeting influencers with 100K+ followers only?

I always believe there is no reason a guy would sell his course for 1000 USD if he is already making millions per year doing dropshipping. Why do it in the first place? There are some good ones, but 90% are shit. The same thing I see in the stock market/forex niche, where everybody just shows their good trades and sell their trading signals. I've lost so many time in the past doing these shit courses. If these traders where really good, they wouldn't have an incentive to sell courses for that much money and would just be trading themselves.

That said there are some good ones, and there is also some really great info that is free (definitely check out ecom empires FB group if you are into Ecom/dropshipping, hands down the best free group I've been in. I'm not in the dropshipping game myself anymore, tried it, wasn't really my thing).

I still believe you can make LOTS of money. Design and branding of your website is so so important. You can't just take the basic shopify theme, make some collections and start making a lot of sales. Try to stand out, do some good advertising, and look for passion products.

Everybody that has a native language that is not English, might want to try to start an affiliate website in their native language and optimize it with SEO, still a lot easier than most English Amazon Affiliate websites I see these days. This is going to my next project myself.

Would be something great for the private forum to keep prying eyes out.

Agreed.

I'll set this up.

I am a newbie so pardon me if this is a newbie question or if there is some guide I failed to read, but I noticed two things. One, since this message by you, WC, you only posted one additional short message (about prices of T-shirts and the profit they yield); otherwise, the thread was basically overtaken by an interesting discussion by two people, with few other contributions. Two, you mentioned setting up a private forum. Surely those two are related. So my question is how can somebody new here view that private forum? Or is it an FB group?

In general, it has been a great thread, thank you for it. My personal interest in this and similar threads is because I am looking for ways to increase my retirement income. I thought about investing in existing online businesses but I don't know much about online commerce and I figured if I don't understand how to build an online business I won't be too good in maintaining one either.

IME it depends on your niche/product. There are influencers out there in the 20 - 30k range but are very niche-specific and have high credibility and engagement (usually they run their own popular blogs).

But it all depends on your product/service. In my world there are definitely guys/gals in that range who do matter.

I have a few ideas for t-shirts, so the concept is go buy a bunch of gildian shirts, them print what you want and sell them for more? Sounds simple but how do you get the print on the shirts?

Up until the recent rise of print on demand you'd buy blanks and go to a local screenprinter. More recently nobody wants to invest money or shell out money so 99% of people use print on demand services like Amazon Merch, Redbubble. Printful, etc.

You provide your design to a screenprinter. Then they would charge you for number of shirts printed, the number of colours and whether it's a one or two-sided print. You might also want to get custom labels made and sewn in.

What makes it complicated is you have to estimate your demand beforehand. The number of each size shirt you are going to produce, the minimum number of shirts to make it worthwhile. Therein lies the risk.
You buy 50 shirts upfront, pay to have them printed and then you try to sell as many as you can.

I think here's where POD can be a good springboard. Use print on demand which has no risk to prove your concept and designs. You'll also get a good idea of which designs sell best, which colors sell best. I know for example that 90% plus of my shirts I sell are back. I also know the vast majority are large and extra large so when I order my inventory I order mainly black shirts medium and large. I could dig in even further and get even more accurate so its not as big of a risk ordering blanks as you might think. Also when your getting blanks for $2 or $3 and selling shirts for $20 there's a very small amount of that invenory you have to sell to break even and after that its all profit.

RE: Ryan's 5-6 Figure/Month Online Money Making Datasheet/Journey
I don’t know if I should bother, but do you guys have any suggestions on how to start this as a 17-year-old? Seeing as I’m off to university soon and do not want to leave my parents alone in funding my studies, it would be nice to make some money. All the internet marketing forums, whilst undoubtedly useful, are massive and one does not really know where to start. My age further complicates things, since neither PayPal nor the main freelancing sites will have me.

I apologise in case similar enquiries have been answered, whether in this thread or elsewhere in the forum; I searched, albeit briefly, and didn’t find much.

«Se trata de escoger entre la dictadura que viene de abajo, y la dictadura que viene de arriba: yo escojo la que viene de arriba, porque viene de regiones más limpias y serenas; se trata de escoger, por último, entre la dictadura del puñal y la dictadura del sable: yo escojo la dictadura del sable, porque es más noble». ― Donoso Cortés

My list of Spanish-language resources and a thread full of them.
PM me with any Spanish questions; I will try to help you!
