Drop it

like it ’ s HOT

The online world has gone from being a

strange new phenomenon to being a stable , high-income career for many . At 18 years old I realized my passion was to become apart of this quickly growing movement . I had a love for business and the drive to do whatever it took . I spent the next 2 years taking 24 specialized online classes to learn business law , e-commerce , social media and website development . While I was obsessing over the latest social media trends , I stumbled across something called drop shipping . It quickly became the basis for my future businesses and goals .
Drop Shipping is when you start an online e-commerce business selling goods to people across the world via a manufacturer who makes and ships the goods for you . Your role is to add product and descriptions to your online store and market your business through targeted social media ads . When you sell the goods , you take the information they give you from your store and plug it in to your manufacturers website . The manufacturer then takes out the cost of the goods and ships it for you , while you ’ re left with the profit . It ’ s incredibly hands off and reaps major benefits when you do it correctly .

This incredible way of starting a business sounds by Jamie Lee

too good to be true for many , but there are top producers who bring in millions each month from multiple stores . The best way to go about it is to create a brand that becomes well known and trusted , that way you can have a stable company that will grow and you can pass down to your children . The best part is that it can all be done online .
I ’ ve become incredibly passionate about making it my responsibility to teach drop shipping to as many people as possible because I throughly believe it could change lives . There is of course controversy over drop shipping as many people believe that it ’ s a bunch of people selling over priced , Chinese crap , however that is not the case . Not only are most of the goods incredibly well made , many people forget how many of our Big Name Brands are made in China anyway . Aside from that , not all drop shippers use Chinese goods . Many of them create and drop ship T-shirt ’ s that are made here in the US .
Drop Shipping , while simple in it ’ s explanation and execution , has many facets that have to be understood first before diving in . From picking the right niche , to understanding how to set up the payments and targeting ads correctly , there is a lot of tiny details that if done wrong , can cause you to fail .
