Let me guess,
Most likely, you are here because for some reason or another, you decided that you want to have an online business.
Well you can be your own boss, make thousands of dollars every month and bottom line, never worry about money again.
Basically, to be able to control your life.
However, you have hardly any business experience and almost zero to no cash to spare.
You have big dreams, but no money or even decent connections to get the ball rolling.
This dilemma somehow made you even more interested in the concept of dropshipping.
No initial investment, No upfront costs, just copy and past an image of a product, sell it on eBay and off you go living your dream life.
Well let me pause you right there.
You have the basic idea right, the idea of controlling or your own life but are a little misguided.
My name is JB and I use to be in the exact same situation about 10+ years ago. In fact, I actually managed to find a product and a dropshipper to go along with it. I even became an eBay Powerseller (Someone grossing $1000 in sales) for a few months.
Does dropshipping works?
Yes, if you have a in demand (market) or unique product (real solution) that no one is selling or you have the biggest market share (market location).
This was my introduction to the world of selling online and I even wrote an eBook about it back in 2005.
However, my sales were stuck and the dropshipper of the product started selling the product on eBay too. Basically, my dream of having my own successful business was coming to a halt and soon it did.
This made me highly interested in having a website and going from there. My thinking was if I had my website, I can grow more and be in more control. Plus I don’t have to pay eBay fees on each item sold
Since than, I’ve managed to learn how to get top 10 rankings on Google and almost all the important things required to be successful on the internet. In fact, I’ve helped some major businesses (One of them is a top 200 internet retailer in the world) make millions of dollars online.
Fast forward to this moment in time . . .
This journey of mine has been both incredible and horrible at times but I discovered three main reason on why I personally wasn’t successful in having my own online businesses.
1. Lack of passion
2. Chasing money
3. Offering no value
I started this whole online thing when I was forced to not go after what seemed like my passion and that was producing music. During this period I realized that I really enjoy making music but it’s not really my passion. After a few years, when youtube came along, I started making funny videos and than I thought my passion was changing and I really started getting into comedy. Few years down the road came PUA and I was completely hooked.
While these things were happening and I was slowly learning what my true passion is, I was constantly chasing money. If someone was selling this and it was working, I wanted to get in on it. i would make a website, get top 10 rankings and than quit. I just had no desire of doing something I had no interest in. I’ve created so many projects, wasted so much money and time that it’s not even funny. After suffering setbacks after setbacks I became aware that instead of chasing money, I should become the ‘magnet’ that attracts money.
This leads to my final point and that is offering REAL VALUE. When you are chasing money, you are not offering any value. You have to understand (Which took me years to accept) that it’s not the internet that is going to give you thousands of dollars every month, but real people who find VALUE in your product or service.
Giving VALUE means HELPING people genuinely and that equals to all the money that you and I need to propel our own growth and evolve.
Yeah it took me almost a decade, but I am definitely grateful that I’ve now aware of what was stopping me from being a success.
Going back to the roots . . .
This realization has inspired me to turn WDclub into a complete resource for people just like you who are interested in dropshipping.
Since it fits in with my passion to give “VALUE”, I am more than excited about sharing all my internet marketing information and experience with you.
I feel like with WDclub, I will be playing my tiny part in helping people evolve and making it just a little bit better than what it is.
1. Follow your passion. If you don’t know it yet, just do what makes you happy.
2. Never chase, attract.
3. GIVE, GIVE & GIVE
