    INTRO Build a $1.2MM company at 18 y/o. AMA!

    Nice work Alex! Can you go a little bit more in depth on this. Did you have an office space, or was it a remote work station? How did you find your first 1-5 employees? What hiring mistakes did you make early on that could have been avoided?

    Ran into the same thing here. Gotta say though, Pheonix/Scottsdale are gorgeous.

    Year 2 Update: It's time for a long overdue update. 2017 was a crazy year. Looking back at my last post in December '16 to where things are now, it's almost hard to comprehend how much has changed in such a short time. If there is one thing I want to stress in this post, it's the need to...

    O/T: HEALTH Standing Desk Recommendations

    The setup I use is this desk: https://www.amazon.com/dp/B01N023V8B/?tag=tff-amazonparser-20 With this table top: GERTON Table top - IKEA I highly highly recommended you move to a stand up desk sooner rather than later. I used to have terrible neck pain all through school caused from sitting...

    GOLD! Escape the Borg! - My Journey to Freedom, Ecommerce

    Yeah I logged on the yesterday and saw 50+ notifications and was like "HOLY COW WHAT DID I DO?!" :rofl: Much appreciated! The Chinese guy was the one who was trying to control my prices. Why? I have no clue! You would think he would make more money if I sold more... Maybe his other customers...

    GOLD! Escape the Borg! - My Journey to Freedom, Ecommerce

    For sure! So it really depends on a lot of different factors. I've had a channel with 80k-100k subs ask for $1400 for a 2-3 min vid. I didn't take them up on their offer but I may loop back around to them as they grow a little more. In my experience, channels with <70k subs won't charge for...

    GOLD! Escape the Borg! - My Journey to Freedom, Ecommerce

    So what happened was when I ran into platform issues in June/July, it reminded me of the lack of control I had over my sales. At that time I was scared that if I began to experience other issues with different platforms I was using, my sales would drop off drastically. This really made me...

    Thank you! I should be posting my 2 year update in the next month or so. So much has happened!

    GOLD! Escape the Borg! - My Journey to Freedom, Ecommerce

    A lot of the smaller guys do it for free. Most times they really like the product and are excited to be able to keep it. Larger channels charge a fee. The guy I worked with charged a flat rate and I sent him a few different products to try out. Right now I'm working out some sponsorships with...

    GOLD! Escape the Borg! - My Journey to Freedom, Ecommerce

    Talk about a crazy month! Sales spiked after the YouTuber's video and have stayed fairly consistent since then. Did more sales this month than all of last year combined - 75% increase over last month. It was also one of the most stressful to date. The reason? Inventory issues. Early in the...

    GOLD! Escape the Borg! - My Journey to Freedom, Ecommerce

    I looked into these at first but saw, as @amp0193 said, they are against the TOS. From my understanding AZ customers were being spammed with email which prompted Amazon to axe the auto-responders.

    GOLD! Escape the Borg! - My Journey to Freedom, Ecommerce

    They talk about the product so unfortunately no luck with Amazon. More 5-stars reviews should be coming in to make up for it, but the sales hit in the mean time has been significant. You're damn right!

    GOLD! Escape the Borg! - My Journey to Freedom, Ecommerce

    Time for an update: Finished September with record sales high month (beat last month by a few K) Youtuber with 500k+ subs posted a glowing review of the product. I plan to use his review as a way of getting in touch with more reviewers within the space. Planning on doing more collaborations...
