    Yeah same one.

    Basically...
    • Imported product one and it sold alright but not great (Sold on Amazon)
    • Imported product two and it sold alright but not great (Sold on Amazon)
    • Stumbled across a line of products I could make myself and that's what I'm still selling right now. Stopped selling the other two products a while ago. (Mostly sold through driving my own traffic.)
    I have a long ways to go...but my biggest takeaway so far is to be ok with readjusting or changing what you're doing if it doesn't work.

    Just finished reading the whole thread. It's been quite fun and educational for me(also thanks for linking to other threads etc) so thank you very much for sharing and congratulations! Your progress/attitude is quite amazing and I'm sure you'll achieve greater success in the future.

    What happened to the patented product that you've been working on though?

    Please keep us updated if you can.

    All the best

    This is an awesome thread @JByers210 !
    I've read it all on a single breath. Your story is so inspiring, so much real action taken. Keep up the great work. You will crush it for sure. I've seen first hand how powerful e-commerce and paid advertisement can be.

    One thing that got under shadows is IG account growth. Can you drop a few words on that topic? Thanks!

    I did the follow/unfollow thing when I first started out and got some sales by posting pics of my products...but this past year I haven't used it much. I've got a decent amount of posts on my page...will be trying to grow it this year and post things my audience actually would want to see.

    Thank you for replying! Haha that's smart, I did something like this with LinkedIn where I'd accept every proposed connection and would add like few hundreds of people per day. Eventually that brings some very interesting people into your circles ;)

    Just read the whole thread, congratulations on your progress!

    May I ask, how did you research your first product? Did you just browse through Amazon and looked for products that sell well but have weak reviews/room for improvement?

    Who is your target market? If it’s millennials they respond really well to influencer marketing on Instagram.

    If I would start my business over again that’s the first area I would focus on. It can be extremely powerful.
