I have to admit, the drop-ship business model is very lucrative, profitable and hassle free! Whats not to love? I mean you get customers to your web site, sell them products and never touch a single piece of merchandise. Then the company who owns the merchandise does the shipping and you collect the money! Seriously? Yep!
When I started my drop-shipping online business back in 2001, I followed the exact same method I describe on my podcast. I really don’t think anything has changed since then but as a matter of fact, things have gotten a lot simpler and cookie cutter (which is NOT a bad thing at all!).

And finally – a few weeks ago, I wrote a long article about drop shipping which is pretty comprehensive and would surely compliment this blog post so be sure to check it out.
This is my fifth episode and I just wanted to express gratitude – I’ve come a long way and although this is not a huge milestone, being only my 5th episode, I do want to tell you that you have contributed GREATLY to my success. For starters, as my listeners and subscriber, you have helped download my podcast over 1000 times since last week – for a new podcast without any promotions, this is amazing!
Second, I want to mention that everyone who listened and was generous enough to give me a 5-star review has also helped me tremendously on iTunes and now when anyone who is new to my podcast listens for the first time, they will at least see the social proof and hopefully they will become a subscriber as well. The other benefit of the reviews and subscribes is that it helps me achieve a great rank amongst others in iTunes. So please, when you can and if you have not yet, please subscribe and leave a review. Thanks!
This has been a long road and I’ve come a long way and its great to be able to write about it and tell you how happy I am with the results! Anyway, I’ll stop here and let you listen to the rest on the podcast. Enjoy!
