Hi, guys, Neil Waterhouse. Check the ebay dropshipping secrets. Last week marked the anniversary of when I started on eBay 23 years ago. So I thought I’d share with you my absolute top eight secrets for drop shipping on eBay. Over the years, one question that I get asked over and over is what is my number one secret?
What is the number one piece of information
What is the number one piece of information that I wish I’d known back when I started on eBay that would’ve, you know, helped the business grow even faster? Well, I spent a lot of time thinking about this, and it’s not one secret. There’s eight secrets, and they all compound each other. They all feed off each other, and the last secret is like throwing jet fuel on a fire.
The secret of getting businesses from six digits to seven digits and eight digits
This is the secret of getting businesses from six digits to seven digits and eight digits. Looking back over the years, I can see that every time I learnt another one of these secrets, my business raised to a whole new level, but before I get started, make sure you hit the subscribe button to the no-fluff, ad-free channel that puts out weekly videos, teaching step by step how anyone can build a seven-digit online business from their home using eBay and Amazon and using less than $100.
So let’s launch straight into it
So let’s launch straight into it. The first secret to drop shipping on eBay is to use a proven methodology. It doesn’t have to be my methodology. Don’t get me wrong; this is not a plug for my drop shipping course. It does not matter which methodology that you use. It just needs to be a proven methodology, and preferably one with case studies. It’s like making a chocolate cake. If you guess the ingredients, then you get an unproven result.
If you follow a proven recipe, you get the same result each time
And If you follow a proven recipe, you get the same result each time. This is why I harp on about case studies, so we can see that the recipe works for other people as well, and yes, I will put a link at the end of this video to my free eBay drop shipping course. 20-odd years ago, I did a load of Tony Robbins courses. One of the greatest things that I learnt from Tony was to not waste your life continually reinventing the wheel.
Find somebody who already can do the task
The fastest methodology for success, for anything in life, including drop shipping on eBay, is to find somebody who already can do the task and has the result that you want, and then you simply duplicate exactly what they do. Tony’s example was the secret to making the world’s best chocolate cake.
Duplicate exactly what that chef does to create the world’s best chocolate cake
His secret was to find the world’s best chocolate cake chef and duplicate exactly what that chef does to create the world’s best chocolate cake. Now, let’s say you do some research and find the world’s best chocolate cake is made by a chef called Pierre in Paris. You fly to Paris and ask Pierre for the recipe.
You fly to Paris, and the chef tells you that he doesn’t have a recipe
And You know, this of course was 20 years ago before COVID-19, when you could actually fly to Paris, but, you know, anyway, forgetting COVID-19, you fly to Paris, and the chef tells you that he doesn’t have a recipe. He just knows how to make that chocolate cake from scratch. He’s been doing it all his life, and you ask him if you can be with him while he makes the next lot of chocolate cakes, and he agrees.
You stop him at every stage and measure each ingredient precisely
While Pierre is making the chocolate cake, you stop him at every stage and measure each ingredient precisely before he puts it into the mixing bowl. You measure exactly how much flour, how much butter, how much sugar, how much chocolate, the make of chocolate, et cetera, and you also accurately document the temperature of the oven, exactly how long the chocolate cake is baked.
You have the recipe for the world’s best chocolate cake
And now bingo, you have the recipe for the world’s best chocolate cake, and you and anyone else can duplicate that recipe over and over again. Building an eBay drop ship business is just like making a chocolate cake. It’s just a matter of following a step-by-step, duplicatable, proven recipe, just like how you make a chocolate cake. Again, this is the reason I talk so much about case studies from my students.
My students have followed the recipe and built six, seven, eight-digit businesses from scratch
It’s because my students have followed the recipe and built six, seven, eight-digit businesses from scratch. Now, the reason this is so important is it means that what is working is the recipe and not the chef. What I mean by this is, and going back to the world’s best chocolate cake recipe example, once that recipe is documented, anybody can make the world’s best chocolate cake.
Crucial lesson I learnt a long time ago
This was a crucial lesson I learnt a long time ago. After all, this is how all franchises work. Take McDonald’s, for example. The procedure to make a Big Mac is fully documented, with absolutely no guessing, so any 15-year-old can make a Big Mac. My business is run by low-cost overseas virtual assistants.
They all follow step-by-step procedures every day
They all follow step-by-step procedures every day. There’s absolutely no guessing. Step one for making a chocolate cake is to get a proven chocolate cake recipe. Sure, we can all mess around and spend our life and our time reinventing the wheel, trying to figure out how to make a chocolate cake, but why waste your time reinventing the wheel?
Why not just find a proven chocolate cake recipe
Why not just find a proven chocolate cake recipe so you can quickly get a proven result? As I get older, I closely monitor what I enjoy doing the most in life and also figure out what I enjoy doing the least. By figuring this out, I continually get rid of what I enjoy doing the least, which gives me more time to do the things in life that I love doing the most.
As an example
As an example, when we first purchased this farm we live on, I used to enjoy cutting firewood. I used to enjoy getting the chainsaw out, the splitter out, et cetera, and creating firewood. For the first year, that was fun. However, you know, like many things in life, it quickly got old, and it started to lose its appeal. So these days, I have a truck on speed dial who delivers a truckload of timber in one phone call. In one phone call, the timber is cut, split, and stacked.
What used to take me days of work now
What used to take me days of work now takes me around one minute per year. Getting rid of a task like this gives me a load more time to do other things in life that I enjoy doing more, like, you know, spending time with my kids. Because time is so precious, I do my best these days to not ever waste my time reinventing the wheel.
Simply find somebody who is already getting the result
Whatever the task, whether it’s building an eBay drop shipping business or learning to make a chocolate cake, don’t waste your precious time reinventing the wheel, then getting an unknown result. Simply find somebody who is already getting the result, and duplicate exactly what they’re doing so you can get the same predictable result over and over.
When you think about it?
After all, when you think about it, isn’t that why we went to school and read books, so we don’t have to spend our whole lives trying to figure out what somebody’s already figured out for us? Why try to reinvent how to boil water when somebody’s, you know, already figured it out for you? Stay tuned till next week.
