Drop shipping, buying goods at Amazon and a few other “box stores” only to sell them more expensive on eBay, no need of investing, no need of taking care of inventory, no need of traffic, branding or anything like that.
Oh well, it’s the perfect formula!
You are golden, you should do it right now and make millions because you have seen people banking big time using this “foolproof profit system” as a guy called ds domination in a blog post.
Ok, now let’s get back to reality.
Although I read somewhere sarcasm was a sign of weakness, I kinda like it, maybe cause I’m so awesome I just can’t look weak LOL.
What the heck is that?
That’s a product that came out about a while ago teaching how to bank ‘blackhatting’ Amazon and eBay to make the big bucks. It teaches how to find cheaper products at Amazon and resell them more expensive on eBay by copying and pasting.
Just now already by the use of ‘copying and pasting’ you should know something is not right about this shit, yet we’ll get there in a sec.
The product is all about using Amazon and other stores as drop shippers, and you just copying their product ads, pasting them with a more expensive tag on eBay and banking off the difference in price.
Sounds about perfect, doesn’t it?
But it’s not perfect at all.
There’s nothing wrong with drop shipping, although it really is for chump change, yet using the ds domination method is not really a pleasant way to make cash.
You CAN make some money reselling amazon stuff, yet it won’t be anything serious. And yeah, the guys pushing the product will tell you the big bucks are in the high ticket products, yet that’s really a dumb thing to say.
Yes, reselling more expensive products makes you more money, however, it is not done using the ds domination method. It’s done by finding the cheapest price for the product you want to sell by going to the manufacturer or distributor and then offering the cheapest price on eBay.
It’s really as simple as that and is nothing to discuss that much, but hey, you will find that on your own if you really want to get into eBay selling.
There are tons of other mishaps as well as black hat methods you have to deal with if you want to practice the ds domination method, like constant Amazon price changes, extremely low profit margins (a lot of times even negative), competition, out of stock products (they came up with some software to be able to argue that objection, does nothing special though) and even account cancellations, but that’s really nothing to concentrate that much on… I’m not even gonna talk about the copying and pasting, but I’m sure you know it’s not right.
The most important thing you have to understand is this:
The money in ds domination is in the affiliate program, and it is for the top affiliates only!!!
This is how a product of this kind works:
1 A partly smart marketer comes out of somewhere and creates a product (in our case ds domination) that teaches how to make money fast and easy
2 He calls all his marketing buddies on Warrior forum and/or whoever he knows into marketing and they all start pushing the product… or makes it a MLM to be able to join people who like to sell crap to each other no one actually needs (that’s my short definition of MLM)
3 They use money snapshots, money videos etc. (you know what I’m talking about) to convince the little people this is the shit! (couldn’t come up with a better expression)
4 They convince a lot of the little people this is the shit!
5 They make a ton of money selling the product, and not doing what they teach in it
6 The little people make dimes working their asses off wondering what is wrong
It’s been like that forever and it is like that with this product as well. What is taught inside is close to useless, not totally useless though. 🙂
Update: I’ve had so many people ask questions about DS domination since I wrote this article and I decided to answer them right here to make your life a lot easier… and possibly save you some cash.
All the training inside this product is about writing titles and searching on Google and the other stores’ search engines. One module was about how to install skype and get a skype number LOL (and that was in the elite training which I think is 100 bucks a month).
I will stop right here, cause I’m pretty sure you already get the idea what this product is all about, but to sum it up:
In my opinion Ds domination should cost around 5 dollars… and I would not pay more than 2 LOL… and yes I got it for free, as I learned a long time ago what I’m writing about here – not to waste money on 30 hours of training how to write titles.
Don’t know if that’s even funny… it is to me.
As I already said up there, drop shipping is a straight forward process:
You search for the cheapest price possible for a product, then make your calculations to profit right, get people to help, cause there are a LOT of moving parts and scaling this business will require a LOT of work, list that product wherever you can get traffic to sell it (Ebay, Amazon… etc.) and don’t expect to become a millionaire by doing this… there, now you owe me $10 000.
Well, if ds domination costs that much, you do. LOL
I know a lot of people will be upset reading this and I really don’t want to ruin your hopes or anything, yet I’m a businessman and I just have to keep it real, as us businesspeople like building businesses, a part of which is being real when blogging, and not just marketing whatever crap we stumble upon on the internet.
I could personally make lots of cash selling ds domination, but I don’t really like selling crap LOL.
Real business takes time, money and persistence.
If you are really into selling on eBay, you will probably need a few years to build up your presence there, and then you might actually start banking big time.
If you want to waste a few months and make some cash, you can try ds domination, it’s 20 bucks anyway. 🙂
I hope this article helped you understand business better and really showed you there is no short cut to riches.
Selling on eBay is killer and lots of people make lots of money there, yet drop shipping and more specifically ds domination eBay selling is not really the way to become huge.
Let me know if you liked this article and stay awesome. 🙂
