Hello Jimmy and other members!
I am a new member of Salehoo and I am glad read about almost everything in the forum, it is very helpful and the cost of the membership is worth every cent.
But I am a little bit confused, therefore I hope you could help me and give me some good advices.
First of all I must tell you that I live in Europe. I used to ran a company as a wholesaler of security systems so I have been importing products mainly from US and also from China in more then twenty years so I have some experience from importing.
I sold that company for a long time ago and since 4 years ago I started up selling on e-bay.
I was selling electronics like MP3, cameras etc. and also digital e-books but I could never make any good profit.
To day I am very tired of ebay and I need to find something else to make money at.
I was reading a lot about your advices where you say that ebay is for wholesaler and I agree to that, you recommend to buy from liquidators like yours and I agree to that also but the problem is the high cost of shipping plus 4.6% in duty for the most products except clothes 14% !! and at the top of that 25% in VAT (Iâ€™m talking about Sweden now) I guess you agree to me that itâ€™s almost impossible to get any profit out oft that.
Itâ€™s very hard to find any liquidators in Europe, I havenâ€™t found anyone yet.
I could also read that you say that drop shipping doesnâ€™t work, maybe you are right again because you donâ€™t have the same control of the products you are selling.
You also recommend signing up for different affiliate programs, do you mean Clickbank or some where else?
I have two ideas now as I hope you could give some good advices so I donâ€™t miss the train again.
1) Make my own e-commerce store but then I have still the problems to find the right product at the right price.
2) I have already signed up as an affiliate at Salehoo and I guess I need to create a landing page before I can start promoting that site.
I know that the most important is to generate traffic to the landing page so I am thinking about to buy Google adwords and pay per click.
Can you recommend any good way to find good affiliates or is Clickbank number one?
It sounds very comfortable to work with affiliate program, no problem with importing, packing shipping etc. But is there really anyone who make good money as an affiliate?
Do you recommend to have more than one program, maybe 5 or 10 at the same time.
If you Jimmy or any other member could give me some good advices I would be more than happy.
Hope to here from you soon.
