    GOLD! Text / SMS Marketing, Any Case Studies from Fastlaners?

    I use SMS Bump for my Shopify store for abandoned carts. Spent $17 on texts and recovered $5300 in revenue. Haven’t set it up like an email list yet but you can do that on sms Bump too.

    Anyone else, like their business so much they don't need to take vacation?

    I’ve been running my business for... 10 years maybe a bit longer from when I first started (man that’s hard to believe). I honestly live a vacation. That’s not because I don’t work but because I’ve made my life pretty awesome. I work a few hours in the morning, another hour or so after lunch...

    HOT TOPIC The Undercover Billionaire: Building a $1m business in 90 days

    Just got caught up today as well. One thing that struck me was he was getting the ball rolling on his business before he has even close to the money to make it happen. I know I’m often a do this then that kind of thing but he already had the business picked out, the pivot to Beer and BBQ done...

    EXECUTION Do you guys accept Paypal payment option? If so, how do you deal with chargebacks / disputes?

    As a seller you are actually far more protected by PayPal than through a regular payment provider that you use to accept credit cards. PayPal accepts a tracking number as delivered as proof of the items received in the event of item not received chargeback. Credit cards require signature...

    GOLD! [AMA] Importing & wholesaling for resale on eBay.

    Opt in via checkout page (has the proper setup inside the app to be compliant) I have it as outbound texts currently but you can send messages to groups (similar to email grouping). You can also upgrade to a paid plan and have any text response sent to you and you can use it like a live chat...

    GOLD! [AMA] Importing & wholesaling for resale on eBay.

    So being that I’m mainly on Shopify now I’ve got a killer app for you guys. It’s called sms bump and essentially you text your cart abandoners in addition to emailing them etc. I’ve known about that for a while and was doing it using a different app but why I switched to this app is because of...

    HOT TOPIC The Undercover Billionaire: Building a $1m business in 90 days

    Once someone has the right mindset they will see opportunities everywhere they go. To me that is the biggest takeaway from the show so far. I recently took my family to an event that was geared towards kids in the local area. That event had thousands of people there... and had 3 venders...

    HOT TOPIC Income Store, Legit? NO, A SCAM AS WE PREDICTED.

    That would certainly be true except that my site isn’t an Adsense site making $43 a month. It’s an e-commerce site worth approximately 75k on the open market (of course the valuation is certainly subjective but that’s based on my personal valuation of the site) You certainly could be right...

    HOT TOPIC Income Store, Legit? NO, A SCAM AS WE PREDICTED.

    No, the site that they bought which I own is worth approximately 75k and the site they built is worth probably 5k as it sits now so that plus the money I’ve received in monthly payments puts me at approximately the original investment.

    HOT TOPIC Income Store, Legit? NO, A SCAM AS WE PREDICTED.

    The site they have built over the last year is probably worth 5k at most. The bought site is currently worth around 75k on the open market is my best guess. That is of course subjective but based off a couple of website sales calculators and average Ecom site multiples. So no IMO the sites...

    HOT TOPIC Income Store, Legit? NO, A SCAM AS WE PREDICTED.

    Two sites were for the single investment. They build one and buy one for the $$$.

    HOT TOPIC Income Store, Legit? NO, A SCAM AS WE PREDICTED.

    I disagree as if it was a Ponzi scheme I feel like their results would be far more consistent and not changing from one type of site to another as why go through the hassle if they are just faking results anyway. I also think they would be turning a profit immediately on new sites to encourage...

    HOT TOPIC Income Store, Legit? NO, A SCAM AS WE PREDICTED.

    Being that the lawyer wasn’t even smart enough to google whether it was registered in Pennsylvania (where they have a headquarters) I don’t know how much stock I put in what she says... it could certainly be a Ponzi scheme... but I personally don’t think so... I guess time will tell.
