1. ETSY: How I Entered the E-Commerce Dimension.
Hey there! No affiliate links in this one.
I work part-time as a usps carrier in the middle of nowhere, and one day decided i wanted to figure out how to work from home.
First thing that popped into mind was making something and selling it on Etsy. It seemed like a great idea, i had recently taken up whittling, and thought: “well hey, I’ll just sell key chains and ornaments and the such”.
It didn’t work out too well, i followed every last tip i could find:
- Total site optimization
- Making social media pages for it.
- Paid a dollar a day for advertising through Etsy.
- Even made a Youtube.
Then i found some business blogs that said i should sell the items that i used to make the key chains as well. (little did i know that That Was Dropshipping)
So i gave it a shot. I found the whittling knife, sandpaper and the like, and posted them on my Etsy store. Only then did i start getting some sales. but only on a single item. And one that had no competition.
It seemed great, i was up to $10 a week for clicking around the internet for a little bit each day. But then after only a week or two. it started:
The Complaints & Technical Nightmares of Drop Shipping
I don’t want to turn anyone off from drop shipping, it’s absolutely a valid way of making money all over the internet. But until your making enough to just pay someone to deal with all that stuff, it’s gonna be up to you to answer questions like:
- “How much extra shipping to Hawaii”
- “The gift card wasn’t as nice as i thought it would be, can i have a refund now?”
- “When did usps give it to fed ex because the package is still missing”
- “Does your homepage support http?” (Weird question considering it was Etsy, Hope i made my point lol)
People are gonna scour your site for the cheapest way of making the purchase and getting the best deal. I don’t know why i thought everyone wasn’t protective of their money.
So if you don’t mind customer service and don’t think you have social anxiety, drop shipping is right up your ally. Id still be drop shipping if not for the customer service aspect.
So anyways, after that i just went onto Youtube and searched for more passive ways of making money online.
