Many people have been bored stiff as they stayed at home amid the pandemic crisis.
Two Australian teenagers, however, realized that there was a wealth of opportunity just waiting for them to explore so they exerted their creative juices to make US$70k in one month.
來自布里斯本，18歲的Lachlan Delchau-Jonesc和19歲的 Taylor Reilly架設了一個網路商店販賣各種商品。
Lachlan Delchau-Jones, 18, and Taylor Reilly, 19, from Brisbane started a month-long online store selling hobby goods.
They used a retail method called “dropping ship” to source products. The method involves connecting with a supplier who sends items directly to customers.
Here is how they made it. The first step in starting the business was to choose a product to sell by researching what goods were in demand.
Next, the teenagers sourced a supplier in mainland China and built a website. Then, they set up Facebook marketing to run ads for the product online.
When products were sold, a notification was sent to the Shopify website. The purchase orders were then sent to the supplier to send to the customer.
They used an app called Ovolo to mainstream this process by directing customers details through their Shopify order straight to the supplier.
The last step was to monitor ads to identify trends and sales patterns so they could double down targeting on demographics that are interested in the product.
When they ended the project on May 10, they had made a whopping US$72,000.
