my MOM made 300 dollars online....

Haha, here I am working on my digital product, hoping I will be able to effectively market and sell it once it's ready. But not making a single dime. My mom on the other room has been up to something I ignored at first, but has made her a good chunk of money in the past couple of weeks. she is just getting started with it, and it looks pretty cool to me. I don't think it's something that can be scaled greatly, but definitely a great way to make some money dedicating a few hours a week.

LOL I realize how much this sounds like those "stay at home mom makes money" ads you see online here and there.

proud of her lol and I think i'm gonna start exploring her technique on the side

    It might not scale up, but it sure could be duplicated a few times over :-)

    haha, yeah it made me smile too when I realised what she was doing.

    I will show her this thread soon.

    Yeah it's not very scalable but definitely replicable. only thing is it does take a bit of time, so eventually it would take up more and more time if replicating it (but would make a good amount of money too).

    What she is doing is simple. Buying low and selling way higher. They're phisical products. People order them from her, she turns around and buys the product and just mails them out.

      That is certainly true... I would say keep your creative juices flowing... try to think of any ideas and when you think of one explore it to see if can make you money.

      My mom hasn't really been working hard, shes just a good salesperson and had this idea. It's not like its a novel idea either, a few other people are doing it too.

        Most importantly is she is enjoying what she is doing and it brings her some income too.

    Congrats to your mom. My mom's been online for about a year now but Facebook is about as far as she has gotten, I doubt she would ever be interested in IM!

    Sounds a lot like your mom is doing some type of dropshipping?!?

      Well like I said, shes buying a physical product, and reselling it online. dropshipping would be nice, but no, shes actually getting them delivered to her and then mailed out to clients (shes just starting, she's trying to set up dropshipping though)

        That's awesome. So it sounds like she did this all on her own, without your direct help? Even cooler.

              Oh yeah, I did not mean to ignore it. When I realised it I started encouraging her. in fact I've been telling her about this thread and that encouraged her even more

              I have to show it to her

      So I just showed her this thread and that really cheered her up and motivated her!

      She asked me to say thanks to all of you nice warriors.

      As for those of you asking for her technique. I'm not going to tell exactly what she's doing in an open forum as econ 101 says competition drives economic profits to zero.

      But don't be disappointed, as her technique wouldn't even work for 98% of you guys any ways.

        Any chance your MOM is working on WSO ?

        Just one question "if your mom is so successful then why the heck you are spending your time on this forum"

        Why can't you follow you mom? She knows something that you don't know.

        Oh she won't tell you her secrets because it will saturate the market for her.

    Anyone can make money online with the right product the right action taking, and the right mindset.

    There are so many ways that one can earn an income online from home. It is pretty amazing.

    One way is with network marketing.

    Good for your mom. This is motivating and shows everyone here who is new that it is really possible to earn an income online if you persist and never give up.

    Refer your mum over to this forum to share her story, it's a win-win situation, she earns respect and credibility in the forum, you earn a referral fee, and the whole forum community benefits from her advice. Just thought it'd be nice.
