Drop-shipping is just gambling with extra steps
Drop-shipping is just gambling with extra steps.
My first months drop-shipping felt like sitting in front of a slot machine.
You pick the first thing that looks like a winning product. Get it approved by your mum and your dog.
You make your ads. You hit send.
And just like that, you know that tomorrow you will wake up a millionaire.
The only thing though, you are as broke as the night before.
Back to the drawing board..
New product. New ads. More budget.
Wash, rinse, repeat.
How to go-from-broke-to-more-broke 101.
And then things started getting better.
First sale .. You throw a party
Then a second. And the whole city knows about it.
Then a third, and you are ready to start coaching people.
More revenue. Barely any profit.
Then it dies..
The movie is over. Time to go home.
I lost every freakin’ penny I had.
Nothing left to pour into that slot machine.
But hey, I am not quitting just yet.
I just gotta find a way..
And then I meet this kid.
19 years old. Just out of high school.
Master sales guy. Making 50 grand a month like it’s a joke.
And here is what I learned.
SALES. IS. ALL. ABOUT. TRUST.
You want to buy a pair of headsets.
You just don’t know which one. And then your best-friend says brand X.
What do you do?
You just buy brand X and we never talk about it again.
People don’t want to spend time making decisions.
Your clients don’t want to decide. Your clients want to be told what to do.
Tell them what to do. Or even better:
Get someone they trust to tell them what to do.
It’s called influence.
INFLUENCE my friend.
Influence moves the world. Influence is the foundation.
Be on the side of influence and you will make a fortune.
You get where I am going?
Now here is what I want you to do.
Pick a product.
Pick someone you know will love that product.
Find someone they trust.
You pick a small influencer.
You pay them a $100.
You make a 100 back in your pocket.
Pretty good huh?
You find another one. Slightly bigger.
You use that profit. You get a bigger audience. You make a higher profit.
Wash. Rinse. Repeat.
But It works. It just does.
Always worked. Will always work.
The good news is, you can start now.
It’s about time you ditch the slot machine for slow and steady.
You know what Einstein says:
“Compounding is the 8th wonder of the world.”
He is smarter than both of us combined.
1 campaign at a time.
Remember that $100 you paid your first influencer?
Well now, it’s $10,000. And you just making bank.
Day in. Day out.
And then what next?
You take that money and you invest it elsewhere.
Or you keep doing the same thing.
It’s a system.
And systems are built to last.
19 year old mentor did it. I did it. My sister did it. There is no reason you can’t do it.
Now go crush it!
