Can You Still Make a Full Time Income Dropshipping on Facebook Marketplace?

Can You Still Make a Full Time Income Dropshipping on Facebook Marketplace?

can you still make a full-time income
drop shipping on facebook marketplace
we're going to answer that question here
today now just about every week and this
happens every single month just about
every week i see somebody in a facebook
group or someone comments on a video and
says something along the lines of you
know sales are down and usually there's
some attribution to this mysterious
boogeyman whatever that boogeyman is
right that doesn't really exist
sometimes it's the economy sometimes
it's you know competition and now these
products and and drop shipping on this
marketplace are super saturated right
and this is not specific to facebook
marketplace this has been going on since
you know the days that e-commerce
started and really every single business
not just e-commerce but the thing you
have to understand about that is a i'm
not saying these things don't exist
right i'm not saying that you know
obviously inflation isn't having a
specific effect on the way people are
spending their money maybe they're
conserving a little bit more i'm not
saying any of those things specifically
what i am arguing is that having that
mentality subscribing to that belief is
only doing you a disservice because it's
handcuffing you and what happens is
whether you're the person saying that or
you're the person that's seeing that and
thinking yeah you're right like my sales
are down maybe it is because there's
inflation maybe it is because there's
over saturation maybe it is because x y
or z fill in whatever you want there all
that does is handicap you because it
gives you a reason it gives you a
built-in excuse so that you think like
yeah sales are down and that's just the
way it is right i should expect that
rather than
doubling down
learning more working harder
and making sure you get results okay so
today we're going to answer the question
of you know can you still make a
full-time income on facebook marketplace
and the answer is without a doubt yes
i'm going to cover a uh you know a
revenue report profit report whatever
you want to call it
for the month of june here you guys said
that you wanted to see more of these you
appreciate the transparency in them and
so i'm gonna give you all the nuggets
here all the transparency on two
different marketplaces two different
personal marketplaces i have three the
other one doesn't really count it's only
like a few hundred dollars in profit and
i only really keep it as like a backup
in case one of my other ones goes down
uh and then two shops uh two primary
shops here um so i have my main one that
actually got suspended a while back uh
if you watched the last video which i'll
link at the bottom of the description it
was like forty thousand dollars profit
in 40 days um that was the one that i
toked about getting suspended in that
video because i was traveling and i
guess i i don't know if it was the ip or
whatever it was that got suspended for
that shop that shop is back up and
running now so i'm very excited about
that but it only has been back up for
about a week and a half now so very
excited about seeing the numbers for
july going forward with that shop with
my new shop obviously uh and then the
other two marketplaces and then the
other shop specifically was one that uh
kind of you know
the the numbers don't get me wrong
numbers are i'll take them but they're
nowhere great to like where i would
expect them to be they're a little bit
down on that shop this month
specifically one of the reasons
specifically that they're down is
because i did take a a week vacation i
went to the shore with my family and my
wife so i wasn't here for a week so this
is really only three months profit for
the entire month right or three months
it's only three weeks profit of the
entire month it's not the full four
weeks so take whatever i say here
extrapolate that you know
obviously for a fourth week and that's
realistikally what the numbers you would
expect them to be for the first main
marketplace account total earned in the
uh in the month of june and keep in mind
like i said this is only three weeks
because i was away i was on vacation
mode for about a week of this total earn
was forty one thousand and eighty eight
dollars and thirty four cents total
spent was thirty thousand one hundred
fifty nine dollars and ninety seven
cents the total profit on that was 10
199 and 31 cents for an average margin
of 34 okay and that was across 559
transactions so if you want to average
out you know what the margin is average
on each sale if you want to average out
like the average profit you can
obviously do that math yourself so
that's the main marketplace account so
anybody that says first and foremost
that you can't make a full-time income
drop shipping on facebook marketplace
is wrong
you still can uh granted these numbers
are not my best numbers ever but if you
look at like the trend of you know both
my marketplaces and my shops over the
past four to five months i'm doing
better now than i was doing even in q4
of last year granted the numbers are
very close and q4 you know you see that
exponential spike because everybody's
ordering more you're getting more sales
and and you know obviously e-commerce
does extremely well in q4 but i'm still
doing like
like arguably equally and better across
multiple shops and multiple marketplaces
so it's still very possible
the the you know the excuse of inflation
or the excuse of you know it's over
saturation or whatever it doesn't exist
okay whether or not those are actually
real or not you can still make great
money doing this okay also the argument
that marketplace like personal
marketplace is dead
false completely false right my personal
marketplaces do arguably well this one
specifically does the best obviously my
one shot before it got shut down was
doing the best like that was my best
earner but since it just came back we'll
see how it goes this month going forward
but right now this marketplace account
is my best earner at a little bit over
10k profit and keep in mind that's
profit right that's not revenue that's
profit so you can make a full-time
income on marketplace just one personal
marketplace you don't need to shop okay
so that's the first marketplace account
now the backup marketplace account that
i use that's like my secondary
marketplace account uh this is 157
transactions on this one total earned
over the month was uh and again these
are all three weeks in the month not
four weeks uh eleven thousand two
hundred and twenty dollars and twenty
nine cents total spent there was eight
thousand one hundred sixty two dollars
and forty nine cents for a total profit
of three thousand fifty seven dollars
and eighty cents again like i said
across 157 transactions okay so pretty
solid numbers there again that's my
secondary marketplace account um we just
started scaling that
probably three four months ago maybe uh
and so i'm very excited about that see
you know where i can actually take that
going forward um and you know all these
all these tips here they're all on this
channel like there's no secrets here if
you want some strategies or you want to
figure out like exactly what i'm doing
to actually hit these numbers like i'm
not keeping anything like close to the
like under the vest like i'm not hiding
anything all the strategies all the tips
that i do myself are on this channel for
free if you're interested check it out
it's all there
so that's the second personal
marketplace account uh for the month of
june again three weeks now let's go back
to the main shop that i actually just
got back so i'm very excited the numbers
here aren't that great
for this main shop but this was the shop
that was completely crushing it like not
last month not the month before when it
actually got shut down but like for the
original i guess it was like four or
five months in um
2012 this shop was absolutely crushing
it was my best earner so the fact that
it got shut down i was completely bummed
but it's back up and running now uh it
was a long process with support over
like two three weeks kind of annoying
them into giving it back to me but
that's how i went about uh you know
getting it back eventually and so the
numbers here is again it just came back
like i think it was like two weeks ago
um and so it's just kind of coming back
into its own the numbers here uh 61
transactions four thousand four one
sorry four thousand one hundred forty
one dollars and 24 cents was made over
the like that two weeks you know since
it came back um total spent was two
thousand seven hundred forty six dollars
and twenty five cents total profit was
one thousand three hundred ninety four
dollars and ninety nine cents okay for
an average margin here of about fifty
percent on this main shop uh that again
was my best earner in the past but it's
just started to come back now forgot to
tell you the average margin on the other
marketplace account that was
not calculated wow okay one second so
let's
average margin on the other marketplace
account so the second one that had a
little bit over 3 000 profit in the last
three weeks roughly was uh almost 40 it
was 37
average margin there okay so like i
always say i mark all my products up
about 40 sometimes i drop the price a
little bit sometimes i raise the price a
little bit depending but on average most
of my products are marked up 40
now the second shop that i have that was
like my my best earning shop i think it
i forget the specific numbers on the
shop um but this one actually got shut
down uh recently not like shut down but
they wanted to verify my identity i
think it was which was super random
because this shop's been like in
existence for like five six months so
this shop currently isn't taking any
sales it's not even live because they're
verifying my identity and they have been
doing that for like a month not a month
a week maybe a week and a half so it's
kind of annoying uh before it got shut
down and again over like the span of
like those three weeks so really this is
probably two weeks again uh it looks
like we did 127 no sorry 128 um
transactions 4785
made
seven dollars and 3377.7
six cents spent uh total profit was uh
one thousand four hundred and seven
dollars and forty seven cents for an
average margin of a little bit over
forty one percent uh on each of those
sales right so those are the numbers now
keep in mind like two main points here
okay obviously we answered the question
of like can you make a full-time income
on you know like drop shipping on
facebook marketplace and facebook shops
hands down yes okay this is not like you
know rocket science and there's there's
no specific tips or like secrets here
right like you list products from other
suppliers you list them high you put in
the work you renew like all the
strategies here on this channel for free
right check them out it's all there
but that said like you do it is smart to
diversify right like if you only have
one personal marketplace account like
you know you you can make a lot of money
like i've shown you but at the same time
like you want to diversify just so if
like one gets shut down or like you run
into an issue with like one of the shops
like i'm facing now even though my other
one came back like you always want to
have multiple options so if one gets
shut down it really doesn't hurt you
over the scale of your business because
while you're working to get that other
one up the other ones can make up the
difference and you'll still be making
money on those right so if that's you
and you only have like one personal
marketplace account or you only have one
personal marketplace count in one shop
like start creating more shops or even
potentially get another marketplace
account so you're diversified over
several different ones and you're not
super attached to just one okay that's
the first lesson alright the second
lesson here is it looks to be like
you know like when you when you apply
for a shop and uh you know you couldn't
get enabled right away because they give
you like that yellow dot for the longest
time that said like marketplace will be
automatikally enabled in mid 2022. but
the good news is it looks like they're
enabling a lot more shops now an
enabling marketplace on those shops
because we're hitting mid-2022 so very
good news there very promising so i
really hope that that helps if you guys
want to learn more about you know how to
hire a team and how to scale this
business if you feel like you're ready
for it one of the last videos i created
really breaks that down very well so
i'll link that up in the right hand
corner if you want to check it out uh
with that being said guys i really hope
you enjoyed the video i hope you got a
lot of value from it if you got any
value from it whatsoever please give it
a like i genuinely appreciate it until
next time
