How 21-year-old Nigerian is building generational wealth from E-commerce drop-shipping….
So I call it Business Without Borders. It’s not restricted to any geographical location in the World. The basics of drop shipping remain the same: Product, Supplier, and Traffic. The only thing that you constantly need to understand as it changes is how to use paid traffic to get more customers that lead to higher conversions. Learning about it is a lifetime activity. Let’s talk about your drop shipping brands, what informed your decision to work on the brands? Dropshipping starts with finding a product that’s profitable; from there you work to get enough customers with a lifetime value. You want to have it private labelled and put a name to the brand. This helps you make more money and also have a loyal clientele base. The decision to have the brands scaled successfully has always been from day one so I can also capture a share of the global e-commerce pie. My first e-commerce brand is in the outdoor niche while the second one is in the beauty niche. To democratize the knowledge I have in drop shipping, I’ll launch a new information brand that aims to document the entire process of drop shipping to interested subscribers. What challenges did you encounter and how did you address them? Every business has its own challenges, and I faced lots of difficulties when I started out. It started with getting some of my Facebook ad account banned, lost some money to my partner who absconded with most of the money we made when I started. I couldn’t directly open either PayPal or stripe to receive money. Not having a well-laid blueprint that works for me as it does for my foreign counterparts in advanced countries. Most of what I learned was through years of trial and error and I still keep learning every single day. I eventually overcame when I made certain lump sums of money and could secure the services of offshore banking corporations. Could you give us an insight into how much you’ve earned from these brands? I value my brands as 8 figures in dollars E-commerce brands and just one of them did $1.19 million (#431,375,000) in November 2019. What efforts are you making to share your knowledge or inspire Nigerians on the opportunities in e-commerce/online business? I constantly share the possibilities of succeeding using online businesses to transform your lives financially and being able to take care of your family via my social media handles both Instagram and Twitter @HQawiyy I also started tweeting mainly in 2018 to show that Fraud isn’t the way and as long as you’re dedicated to your hustle and equipped with the right skills you can achieve feats I’ve also used the medium to share some of my paid offers that could help grow their brands astronomically and skyrocket their conversions.
