Another option for you to make some money after acquiring a decent size follower base would be by selling your own products or promoting your own ecommerce store. To start an ecommerce business, you need some initial investment in products. So, if you are strapped for cash, you might want to go with drop shipping which is part of ecommerce as well.
If you are intimidated, don’t be. Everything you need to know is available online. Most of the stuff that you need to know is available for free. It will take you some time to wrap your head around ecommerce, but once you do it’s a fun ride.
You have probably seen a lot of ads pop up of some funny looking guy telling you that he is a guru of eCommerce and he can’t teach you how you too can make 10K a week. This is one of those tactics where an eCommerce store owner blows a ton of money on ads and is pushing any type of product just to show sales to you and sell his/her course.
Most of these “gurus” never show you how much money they spent on Facebook ads or paying influencers. To them it’s just an unimportant detail. But it just happens that marketing costs are most likely their highest costs.
The platform that I found to be the best for hosting your own ecommerce store is called Shopify. You can sign up for a 14-day free trial and it is by far the easiest platform to understand.
