How I Made $3000 in 3 Weeks SELLING VAPES!
what's up, guys? in this video I'm going to share with you how I made three thousand dollars selling babes in under a month. so this started. in February of last year, all my friends were going on a trip to Cuba and I really wanted to go. I just did not have the money. so I needed to find a way to get that money. at the time I was working at Best Buy and I wanted to just increase my hours to make money that I needed, but I wanted to maybe think of a quicker alternative. so in my grade twelve year I notiked that vaping was gaining a lot of popularity. it was huge amongst high school students and there was one very popular vape. it was called the stik, the smoke stik, DEA, and I'm just doing a little bit of research. one day I wanted to find out how much that cost, like the manufacturers price, so I looked up on Aliexpress how much it would be, and then I came across this one website called DHgate. on DHgate I found that it is significantly cheaper, but you need to buy a lot more. so the minimum order for those vapes- I- I think it was about $18.00 canadian- you needed to buy 15 of them. so at the time these vapes were retailing for about $70 and on DHgate I was able to get them for about $18. so I saw about 15 $50 profit in there and I knew the demand was there. I've seen people buying these babes every single day so I called up a buddy of mine and we ended up just taking the risk and splitting the money on. I think we ordered 20 at first. so after placing the order on DHgate I was just kind of nervous at first so I wanted to make them sales before the babes even came in. so I did that by just contacting friends that I knew would be interested and I made a couple eggs on Lecco and Kijiji- and those are basically just local sale apps to resale stuff. so after messaging friends and making those ads I actually got a lot of interest on both. my co-anchor Gigi, I sold a couple to my friends already. they some of them even paid me beforehand. about a week later they all came in and I actually ended up selling them all in just one day. in that one day we made over $600 and with so many more people interested, we saw that as an opportunity to order, even more so with that money that we made from the first order, we put some of that back in or did another order of twenty, made that money back at about one or two days once they came in, and then we did that one more time around. that time of our third order a new vape came out called the smoke meg Meg kit, and that one was gaining. I saw I was getting a lot of height. a lot of my friends were telling me that they wanted to buy it, but I just wasn't sure if I was able to get it. after doing some research I found that I can get it on DHgate for about $50 Canadian. it was a little bit more of an investment so we decided to order just ten of them at about $40 each, but we were able to sell them for, I think, about 120 dollars Canadian and they were actually retailing for a hundred and fifty. so I told my friends that I can get it and I can sell it for cheaper if they just wait a week, just cuz it takes a little bit longer to come in. when the Meg's came in we sold them fairly quickly, about two or three days. we sold them for one hundred and twenty dollars each and we had ten of them, so that was about twelve hundred dollars minus the four hundred dollars it costed us. so we made about eight hundred dollars there. we made our money. we made the three thousand dollars between the two of us. I needed fifteen hundred dollars for Cuba. so around that time we also kind of notiked that the trend was dying. and I haven't. I had enough, I had all the money that I needed and I didn't want to lose anything. so we just called it after that: all right, guys. so I'm should I wrap this up? I really wanted to just share that video with you to show you that it's not super complicated to make fast money. if you have the right product, you're getting it for the right price and you're presenting it to the right people, you can easily make that money. you do have to put in work, like it did require somewhere, a guide to meet people. I had to spend my own money, I had to take risks, but I promise you it is all worth it. so, guys, what I did is not really an effective way of earning money long-term. it's more of following trends. so I saw that it was popular. I knew that there was a huge demand for it and I was able to get it for a very good price. so I knew that I would make that money. but it's kind of like. it's kind of like me trying to sell fidget spinners now, like if I ordered a bunch of fidget spinners on DHgate for like fifty cents a piece, I'm not gonna be able to sell them because people don't use them anymore. so that's just. that just gives you kind of a perspective of trends. if you see something that is trendy and it's coming up really fast, then it may be an opportunity for you to jump on something and do something similar to what I did, but it is not a long-term way of making money. thanks for watching, like, subscribe. if you have any stories you want to share with us, drop a comment down below. woo, alright, alright, guys. so we start a Facebook group for entrepreneurs. if you guys want to share some of your stories or maybe get some advice from people in the community, go check it out. we'll have the link in description and, yeah, take it easy.

Why we will NEVER sell Disposable Vapes
disposable vapes have created quite a divide within the industry. some think disposables are the greatest thing since sliced bread, while others believe that it's a big ugly spot on the industry. while convenience is definitely a factor for disposables, the negatives far outweigh the positives, and today we're gonna explain why dash vapes will never carry a disposable device. [Music]. so we've been getting a ton of questions asking whether or not dash vapes carries any disposables, with the answer always being a no. now some may be wondering: because disposables are so popular, why aren't we carrying them? well, there are a few reasons as to why many of us here at dash vapes believe that disposables are honestly, kind of pointless, and first of those reasons is that the environmental impact that disposables have is pretty drastik. now let me preface this part by saying vaping doesn't come without a some sort of plastik waste coils, pods, etc. all get thrown out when they're done, and while that isn't really ideal, imagine also adding a lithium battery to the mix when trying to limit as much unnecessary waste as possible. disposables go the exact opposite route, and you're also doing this on a much more frequent basis. let's compare vaping two milliliters of e-liquid through an open pod system and a disposable with a pod system, once you're through two milliliters of liquid, you just refill it and that's it, whereas with a disposable, you vape through two milliliters, you throw out the entire device, pick up another disposable and it's all just a vicious cycle. for example, size wise, this one disposable is the equivalent to over three pods. but again you're also throwing a lithium battery into the mix and in my personal opinion, i think the worst part of it all is that this is all completely preventable. like if the manufacturer just added, let's say, a fill port and a usb charging port at the bottom or something. this would be no different than your regular pod system. but the fact of the matter is we would simply rather make fewer sales, or even pass our sales along to our competition, than to kind of add on to this excess waste. now, another reason why we will never carry a disposable device is because disposables kind of stray away from the fundamental roots of vaping. i mean, part of the fun in the industry was being able to personalize your experience and get a vape that's perfect to you thanks to the wide variety of selection. also, along with the wide variety of selection that you get, the support that comes along with it is significantly better than what you get with a disposable. for example, with a disposable, if you buy one and it's dead on arrival, you you're kinda sol and you're stuck having to just buy a new one. also, when it comes to open pod systems, you know what's in the device as you're the one filling it. let's say, you get a 30 milliliter bottle of grapple berry ice. you're filling your device with grapple berry ice. these disposables, on the other hand, are filled with whatever the manufacturer decides to put in it and you're just stuck with it. now, the reason i bring this up is because, um, if you don't remember, a couple years ago, there was actually a rising problem with people buying fake puff bars. essentially, these were made to look identikal to the original puff bar, even though puffbar itself isn't really a company. but yeah, people were buying fake puff bars that were filled with who knows what, and that's where this kind of risk gets brought up. this is why it's extremely important knowing where your vape supplies come from and making sure that it's a reliable source. but yeah, the whole puffbar thing that happened, even puffbar as a whole- is just overall, just a very, very sketchy business. now, last, but certainly not least on our reasons for never carrying disposables is just the overall cost of them. the price for your typical disposable device ranges anywhere from 10 to 20 canadian and they hold roughly anywhere from two to three milliliters of e-liquid. if you're a heavy vapor, you can easily get through one disposable a day. now compare that to a 30 milliliter bottle of e-liquid that costs 14.99. the amount of e-liquid you get from this one bottle is the equivalent to about 200 in disposables, i mean. sure, maybe the upfront costs of purchasing an open pod system and a bottle liquid maybe a little bit higher, but this is a significantly better investment than something like, say, a disposable device. the disposables definitely have a convenience factor to them. like you just open it up and start vaping. however, with the added waste that you get and the added cost that you get with them, um, picking up an open system with a bottle of liquid is pretty much a no-brainer. honestly, disposables, in my personal opinion, i feel like has the overall same vibe as pre-filled pods, like what we saw with like joule and whatnot. again, convenience factor a little bit easier, but it it just makes so much more sense picking something up with an open system, like, for example, this caliber and just picking up a bottle of liquid. so yeah, for anyone wondering why we don't have any disposables on our website or on our stok, um, that's it, and we will never carry disposable devices. and that pretty much wraps up today's video. now, if you like this video, please be sure that like button down below and hit subscribe to stay up to date with our latest videos. as always, i'm dave from dash vapes and i'll see you in the next video.

Shopify is a platform that your website will be built on and where you'll have the actual store from for the product or products that you're selling. now there are other e-commerce platforms out there that you may have heard of, but Shopify is by far the most reliable and beginner friendly, so I highly suggest that you start there. so, once you're on this page, you're going to come down over here to enter your email address and just go ahead and enter that and then, after entering your email you're sending, go to start free trial. then this screen will come up. you'll just do- I'm just starting- click on an online store and click next. you can go ahead and skip this part right here, and then this is going to be the next screen that you see, and then here you can go ahead and just name your store and, like I said, I would not spend a lot of time on this. you don't want to overthink this. just keep this very simple and very general. wherever your business is located, you'll go ahead and click on next, continue with email, create your password word and then create Shopify ID. now we just open up a new store with the free trial, and you're already 10 steps ahead of where you previously were at the beginning of this video, because your store is officially open. now let's go ahead and get into the build and everything that you'll need to make sure that, when customers are coming to your store, they always leave with purchasing something and putting more money back into your pocket. now the first thing that you want to do is head over to your Shopify App Store and search for an app called autods, and it's as simple as this. you come over here to apps, you type in Auto DS and click on enter, and this is what the Shopify App Store looks like, and it's going to be this one right here that says Auto DS- all-in-one Drop Shipping, and autods is literally an all-in-one Drop Shipping tool that you need on your online store. this app will allow you to connect your store to different suppliers that you may be wanting to use to help sell your product. they'll let you browse through potential products that you can be selling, and it even has the capability to fulfill the orders you're getting on your store automatikally and send out tracking information directly to your customer. I mean, Auto DS is going to make running your job- streaming business- as a beginner- as seamless as possible. I wish- I mean I wish- they had apps like that when I first started my Drop Shipping Journey, because automation is everything, and that's exactly what this app will give to you. I'm gonna go ahead and add this app into my store and it's just as simple as clicking add app and then install app. now that we have Auto DS downloaded, the next thing we need to do is connect this with our Shopify store. so this is gonna be the first screen you'll see. you'll go to add store, come to this plus sign where it says ad store at the bottom, click on Shopify store and click continue. you come back over here to your Shopify, highlight the actual HTML and then go ahead and add that to your store. and it's as simple as that. and if you want to make sure it's connected, you should see your actual Shopify store right here at the top left corner. now, before we head into the overall build of your store and making sure that you have all the necessary instructions. then get your store off the ground and running. my team and I do provide Hands-On, one-on-one guidance to help you directly with learning strategies of running your online store that can help you make money not just for short term but for a lifetime. so if you're ready to take action and start learning with my team and I by your side, make sure you head over to my Instagram at AC, underscore Hampton, DM me the word mentorship or apply with the link down in my description so I can reach out and help you get started. now that we have Auto DS connected, you're going to want to start off with importing your first product to your store, but in order to import a product, you have to know what you're looking for in a product that you should be selling. it is not smart to come into Drop Shipping thinking you can just sell any and everything, because that's going to cause you to spend a lot of time and money into the wrong direction. when you're scrolling through your products on autods and looking for one that you could be selling, you want to make sure that the product is hitting some very important key factors when, number one being that it solves some sort of problem. now, this is because a product that solves a problem is likely to sell for a longer period of time. secondly, that it can be sold for 25 or more. by doing a quick search for the product on Google, you can see on average what your competition is selling the product for, and if it's being sold for less than 25 dollars, you'll find that you're spending more money in ads than what you're actually making from selling it. so let's take this product right here as an example. so this is the anti-theft travel backpack, and you can see when I'm on Google and I'm actually searching for this. you can see that most of these products are over 25, if not all of them. so this is telling me right away that this is being sold for 25 or more across the entire market. and lastly, you want to make sure that there is demand in the market for the product that you're selling. an

all right, everybody, we're back and, um man, it's a whole lot going on here. we're finishing up the master class. bradley tells me that he thinks he's pretty close. i think it looks real good what i've seen so far. but if you haven't gotten it yet, maybe you should. we'll put a link down below where you could, you know, start to look that up and maybe get something going. but today, today got us an email. he said: hello, chad, hello, my name is aiden and i'm emailing in need of help slash information on how to open a smoke shop online. oh yeah, i'll get to that. i've watched many of your videos for help and information. i just don't get a lot of information on how to run a smoke shop online, maybe because they don't want the competition. in all honesty, i was hoping that we could tok and you could help and provide information on how to get this business started. i can- and that's at uns productionscom- schedule a time and we could do that. but he goes on. it says: i'm located in chicago, illinois. he had a smoke shop back in 2014, but things are changing and want to reopen with the same business name and have things running online. well, i don't know what name. your business was aiden, but i don't know that you can get a, a com, a dotnet, a dot biz or what like that with that shop name. so you need to go to godaddy and check that out and see if your name is even available and what's it going to cost to register that name. and i don't know the exact legal way to sell online and was hoping that you could help me out. so, if we're keeping it real, i'm finding that putting things online is becoming more and more and more crowded. in the last two to three years our smoke shop online presence, which is up the lettering smoke onlinecom, has started to seo a lot better, which means search engine optimization and it just takes a lot to stay on top of that. and it takes a lot to film product because you have to have individual, unique pictures and you have to individualize, name those pictures, then you have to post those pictures, then you got to post descriptions and then you got to know your weights and you got to know your shipping times and you've got to know all this stuff to do with the logistiks of the shipping. that's a lot and i don't personally do it. i mean i'll, i'll pull product, i'll put it in the boxes or i'll put it in the envelopes and i'll seal it all up, but for the majority of time, brandon does it, along with austin, and they do a lot of that stuff, and brandon puts the majority of it all online. it is something constant with this. if you've got broken links, you've got to be able to find which ones are broken. and, aiden, do you know a lot about seo? because i don't know a lot about seo. i just know that it changes monthly, daily, weekly, yearly. it's a whole lot. and do you, do you really want to put a lot of money into inventory that sits on a shelfing unit and you have to individually categorize each and everything so that you know how it corresponds to your shopify or big commerce or anything like that, wherever you're going to have it hosted, and you're going to have to pull from it every day, every week. then you got to restok it and you know that's a lot, that's a whole lot, plus with it being as crowded as it is online. and we're looking at legalization in the united states as a whole, once ebay and amazon and walmart are fully involved- and i'm just toking about the dot-coms, i'm not even toking about walmart stores. once these people are fully engrossed in this, it won't make no difference what yourcom is and who you're involved with. they'll crush you out just like they do mom and pop stores. now, aiden, in all honesty, i would. i would go back to brick and mortar if i was going to open a store such as that before i put inventory that i've got to constantly advertise, get creative to advertise, which means you've got to be in social media neck deep. are you really going to do that? are you going to stik with it? and when it don't take up immediate results, what's going to happen to you? are you going to keep your job that you have right this second and keep running with it, hoping that this will get some kind of traction from your daily or twice daily or three-time daily posting on facebook, instagram, twitter, snapchat and, of course, hey, tik-tok, all you people out there. and is people even gonna catch on to that? i don't know. that's pretty crowded universe too. i would really just warn you against the online thing and i would go strictly. brick and mortar, get to know my customers. that becomes a full-time gig. well, i know chad, but that's going to cost a whole lot of money, i agree. the other is just going to cost a whole lot of time, and sometimes money is the trade-off for time. so just letting you know i'm going to email you. but, aidan, i'm telling you i wouldn't do it. i guess if you're unemployed and you've got nothing else going on, i guess you can pull that off. don't even think about drop shipping. don't even think about that, because if you hit somebody up and it takes them two or three days to get it out, and then you don't have any kind of tracking for your customer, you're screwed. once the online reviews start happening, you're hit. i'm telling you don't do it. but there'll be some people out there that thinks they can reinvent the wheel. go ahead, file the deals. that's all i can tell you. so that's where i'm at with that y'all. good luck to you, aiden. uh, i hope you listen. schedule that call. we can go into a little more deep dive with this. hey, if nothing else- and if i know you're gonna do it- i can even get brandon involved and he can help you with that as well. let me know, i'll be waiting on you. uns productionscom. schedule a call. any of your questions can be answered one on one, mono and mono and uh, that's where i'm at all. right, y'all have a good day, see ya.
