Reselling on Ebay and Amazon from a Beginner's Perspective

Being a internet Entrepreneur is not as easy as a lot of people may think from the outside looking in so I am always looking for more ways to increase my cash flow. In my years of experience I have gone from Adsense, to Commission junction through websites and email marketing, Clickbank products which I could never sale, to other backbone staples of e commerce like Ebay and Amazon.

After my Adsense account got shut down and Commission junction said I could not use my links the way I was using them I was back to being a beginner all over again. The other advertising company's that compete with Google don't even come close to the money Google can earn you but all in all your not going to get rich with adsense unless you have a major website with 100,000 visitors a month or more.

I have bounced from one thing to another much like any other online entrepreneur desperately seeking that solid source of income so that I can quit my day job. What I have noticed is this about myself. The two times I have been laid of from different jobs I was making 500-1,000 per month but within 2-3 months each time I got let go from my jobs. I was hungry for cash, desperate for anything to work, and I ate slept and breathed the online world of making money every waking second of the day and you know what? Only then have I ever made a substantial amount of money. What does this all mean and what am I getting to? Well its pretty obvious, unless you can devote massive amounts of time I see it to be a extremely slow climb if you ever make money online at all. The reason you hear all these people becoming successful online is because they were backed into a corner and had to start fighting for their life to survive because the job market in America is not what it use to be.

I never realized it but years ago I started an Ebay account where I could sell random stuff I no longer wanted. I had bought and sold only a handful of things on there but when I logged in this past year after half a decade of being on there last accept for maintenance I realized I had outstanding seller rating because everything I sold had helped me obtain 7 scores of 100% feedback. So i had an established aged account with outstanding seller rating ready to go, linked to my paypal account. I started listing a few things I already had in my house and some stuff my family members were giving me and I started to actually sell them within the first week of me getting into the whole Ebay thing. Let me back up tho because the way I got back to Ebay is interesting in itself because I have done the ass backwards approach to online reselling.

After having success with Amazon's Kindle Publishing I stumbled on to the section of their site that says "Make Money With Us". When I realize you could sell things like ebay this had me interested because I am trying to have money from all angels coming in.

I never really noticed it but when I was watching thousands of KDP videos on YouTube day and night there were a guy named Cody Hawk that was talking about Amazon FBA and that hooked me. So you mean to tell me I can send a box of things to sell to Amazon's warehouses and they sell it for me and I dont need to do pictures and long descriptions? I dove in head first and didn't look back. I got all the books in my house and started out with Merchant Fulfilled and started selling them immediately within one day so that peaked my interest even more. Within one more week I had a box of things to send to Amazon after watching over 100 hours of videos of pickers on YouTube that teach you what to do. Maybe I rushed in it but I take action immediately and ask questions later. After selling something the first week after my shipment was received to Amazon I knew I was picking the right things. Every week I was selling more and more and more. My first week I sent 5 boxes to Amazon and I didn't think twice.

I realized people were doing Ebay and Amazon at the same time to make full time incomes so I jumped on that too and that is how I got started with booth. Most people do these methods of online money making in reverse order but hey, it's all working for me at the moment and I am learning more and more every day.

I will continue to update my progress with this journey into the reselling world so wish me luck!
