Haven’t read part 1 or part 2 yet? You’ll probably be confused.

Read them first.

This has been a fun!

It’s been a few weeks running an online business. I’ve spent money and earned money. Time to tally the results and see what I’ve got.

My monthly sales are $277. Fucking fantastic.

You might think that’s a bad result. Maybe you think that I should be earning more money. Maybe my money spent on building an email list stifles my profit margin. And you’re not wrong.

But here’s the important thing: The arrow is pointed in the right direction. That’s important because I went from making $0/month to $277/month. In addition to working 20 hours a week on the side. That’s not bad for a beginner.

In terms of physical product – I won’t reveal how much these flags cost to manufacture (for my business’ sake). But it’s a GREAT profit margin.

And what about pricing? $35 is a great price for a custom flag. Anyone who disagrees is misinformed.

Why am I writing this?

No clue.

I like to imagine using them as resources 30 years from now living in a California mansion smoking a blunt with my model wife.

Or at the very least – as a written affirmation. The truth is like a fog and I’m trying to navigate through it with better systems. Writing out the business process seems like a good idea.

Maybe only 20 email subscribers will read this.

Oh well. Hope you enjoy it!

Feisty Flags (Part 2)

In an earlier post I explained my business ventures with Feisty Flags. Before you continue reading, READ THIS first. This is your only warning.

Shipping:

Shipping flags from China to the US can be difficult. There’s communication issues, currency problems, and a slew of errors. Add a $50 shipping fee and headaches are almost certain. I’m not complaining though – getting the same product from Canada would be $30 a flag.

If I order 10 flags, with a manufacturing price of $4 a flag and $50 shipping, this comes out as roughly $9 a flag. Meaning that to make my money back – I’d have to sell flags for $10 a piece. Not bad.

Of coarse, that’s worst case scenario. Keep in mind that I’m in competition with others selling the same/similar flags. And to be perfectly honest; Amazon prices seem like a fucking scam. They take 15% of my sale in addition to $39.99 a month. This means that I have to hustle to make my dough. Luckily, my flags are better.

Anyways, I’m still getting my foot in the door and so I’ll keep you in the loop.

This is just for fun, after all.

 

Introducing ‘Feisty Flags’ and Why I’m Happy

Screen Shot 2017-05-09 at 6.29.18 PM        I don’t start websites to make people happy because that doesn’t make me money. You’re probably thinking I’ve got some hidden agenda to make you laugh or cause controversy, but that’s simply not true. And while I’d like to launch a website for fun, the fact is I’m 18 years old and heading off to college – I need the money.

That’s where an online store comes in.

Ladies and gentlemen, I present to you Feistyflags.comThe World’s Most Trusted Online Conservative Flag Store.

Oh yes, I’ve taken a big plunge and couldn’t be happier.

        With that being said, I want to stress something important: These flags don’t match my views. That’s important because I’m different than my store. I have my own views and beliefs that don’t intersect with this website, and that’s totally fine.

And so if you like sexy artwork, you might like checking it out. If you like conservative flags, you might like checking it out too.

I’d like to thank all my friends and everyone involved in my first ‘business-ish’ adventure. You have absolutely no idea what you signed up for – but it probably will make you happy.

Thank you.
