startTime durationTime text
00:00:00 00:00:04 dumb products and seemingly useless
00:00:02 00:00:06 inventions make millions of dollars
00:00:04 00:00:09 every single year most notably in the
00:00:06 00:00:10 christmas season of 1975 gary dull
00:00:09 00:00:13 released the pet rock and within a six
00:00:10 00:00:16 month period sales skyrocketed the pet
00:00:13 00:00:18 rock introduced in 1975 was billed as
00:00:16 00:00:21 the 70s alternative to men's best friend
00:00:18 00:00:23 over a million of these pet rocks sold
00:00:21 00:00:24 at four dollars each and my man gary
00:00:23 00:00:26 became a millionaire this is an
00:00:24 00:00:28 authentik pet rock it's literally just a
00:00:26 00:00:30 rock in a box with some instructions on
00:00:28 00:00:32 how to take care of it but i mean hey it
00:00:30 00:00:34 looks pretty cool over the next 10 days
00:00:32 00:00:36 i'm going to sell three dumb gimmicky
00:00:34 00:00:38 products that somehow made millions of
00:00:36 00:00:40 dollars to see if i can bring these
00:00:38 00:00:42 products back and secure enough profit
00:00:40 00:00:44 to finally move out of my mom's house
00:00:42 00:00:46 jokes aside i moved out of my mom's
00:00:44 00:00:48 house a few months ago to pursue being
00:00:46 00:00:50 an entrepreneur full-time but ever since
00:00:48 00:00:52 i made the decision to drop out of
00:00:50 00:00:54 college her dreams of me becoming a
00:00:52 00:00:56 doctor a lawyer or an engineer were
00:00:54 00:00:57 crushed so i'm gonna sell these dumb
00:00:56 00:00:59 products in front of me to prove to my
00:00:57 00:01:01 mom that i can have success as an
00:00:59 00:01:04 entrepreneur and with the money we make
00:01:01 00:01:06 i'm going to surprise her with the best
00:01:04 00:01:08 gift ever
00:01:06 00:01:09 it's time to unbox everything i just
00:01:08 00:01:12 bought i had spent the last week looking
00:01:09 00:01:14 at tik-tok instagram ads or other
00:01:12 00:01:16 online ads that popped up to find the
00:01:14 00:01:17 trendiest and most popular items that i
00:01:16 00:01:19 could sell starting things off with this
00:01:17 00:01:22 slushie cup right here this is a product
00:01:19 00:01:23 that went extremely viral on tiktok
00:01:22 00:01:25 and when i tested it out with my
00:01:23 00:01:27 favorite drink in the world it began to
00:01:25 00:01:30 work boom look at that guys we've got
00:01:27 00:01:32 ourselves a nice slushy that was the
00:01:30 00:01:34 first of many cool products i tested out
00:01:32 00:01:36 they turn a different color how cool is
00:01:34 00:01:38 that and if you want to change them back
00:01:36 00:01:40 i believe you put hot water but i'm not
00:01:38 00:01:42 sure oh my gosh look at that other
00:01:40 00:01:45 products though didn't live up to
00:01:42 00:01:47 expectations oh god
00:01:45 00:01:49 it's literally like electrocuting me and
00:01:47 00:01:50 it's not comfortable i think i'd rather
00:01:49 00:01:52 work out the normal way so now that
00:01:50 00:01:54 we've tested out all the products it's
00:01:52 00:01:56 time to figure out which ones i actually
00:01:54 00:01:58 want to sell it has to be a product like
00:01:56 00:02:00 the slushie cup that has viral potential
00:01:58 00:02:02 but it also can't be too saturated where
00:02:00 00:02:04 everyone and their mom is already
00:02:02 00:02:05 selling it and speaking of my mom if i
00:02:04 00:02:07 want to surprise her with any
00:02:05 00:02:09 substantial gift i need to sell a
00:02:07 00:02:11 product that functions well to avoid a
00:02:09 00:02:13 ton of returns that means the ab
00:02:11 00:02:14 stimulator is out and i'm also going to
00:02:13 00:02:16 scratch off the slushy cup just because
00:02:14 00:02:18 it's way too saturated that leaves us
00:02:16 00:02:20 with the shower head the color changing
00:02:18 00:02:22 shorts and the car air mattress left to
00:02:20 00:02:24 sell and since we only have a little
00:02:22 00:02:26 more than nine days to make money with
00:02:24 00:02:28 these products i got to work building
00:02:26 00:02:30 the websites which by the way took way
00:02:28 00:02:32 too long all the way from coming up with
00:02:30 00:02:34 a company name to creating logos product
00:02:32 00:02:36 descriptions and the entire website
00:02:34 00:02:39 outline i'm doing about a week's worth
00:02:36 00:02:40 of work in one insanely long night i'm
00:02:39 00:02:42 gonna be needing this tonight by the
00:02:40 00:02:45 time i finished working on the website
00:02:42 00:02:47 it was extremely late it is currently
00:02:45 00:02:50 304 am all three websites are looking
00:02:47 00:02:51 pretty solid if you ask me and tomorrow
00:02:50 00:02:53 is yet another big day because the goal
00:02:51 00:02:55 is to make some tiktoks for our
00:02:53 00:02:56 products to run as ads by the next
00:02:55 00:02:58 morning i hit the ground running
00:02:56 00:03:00 creating the social medias along with
00:02:58 00:03:02 some tiktoks to run his ads for our
00:03:00 00:03:03 products multiple tiktoks have
00:03:02 00:03:05 officially been posted on each of my
00:03:03 00:03:07 company pages and now it's time to run
00:03:05 00:03:09 those tiktoks as ads to hopefully get
00:03:07 00:03:11 some sales the scary thing about online
00:03:09 00:03:13 advertising is just how much these
00:03:11 00:03:14 social media companies know about you
00:03:13 00:03:16 i'm setting up tiktok ads for the
00:03:14 00:03:19 high pressure showerhead right now and i
00:03:16 00:03:21 can literally target people based on age
00:03:19 00:03:23 gender or whether they like showering or
00:03:21 00:03:25 not having your personal information so
00:03:23 00:03:27 easily tracked can be dangerous identity
00:03:25 00:03:29 theft is not a joke jim millions of
00:03:27 00:03:32 families suffer every year so that's why
00:03:29 00:03:33 i partnered with aura in this video to

00:04:18 00:04:22 many times your info has been found on
00:04:20 00:04:24 the dark web now that we are officially
00:04:22 00:04:26 spending a small fortune every day on
00:04:24 00:04:28 tiktok ads it is time for these ads
00:04:26 00:04:30 to be approved and for sales to start
00:04:28 00:04:32 flowing in i hope so at least i started
00:04:30 00:04:34 day three with a one billion dollar
00:04:32 00:04:36 morning routine actually no i didn't i
00:04:34 00:04:38 literally only ran for 30 seconds so i
00:04:36 00:04:40 could film it but now it's time to check
00:04:38 00:04:42 the shopify sales and as you guys can
00:04:40 00:04:44 see on one of the stores we got one sale
00:04:42 00:04:47 for 34.99
00:04:44 00:04:49 after spending 60 on ads this was
00:04:47 00:04:51 devastating i didn't want to deal with
00:04:49 00:04:53 the financial burden of telling my mom
00:04:51 00:04:55 she owes me money instead of surprising
00:04:53 00:04:58 her with an awesome gift i've gotta make
00:04:55 00:05:00 the shopify thing work i spent way too
00:04:58 00:05:02 long making all those websites for it to
00:05:00 00:05:03 fail so quickly so i hopped on a call
00:05:02 00:05:05 with some drop shippers who've made
00:05:03 00:05:07 millions and as i spoke with each of
00:05:05 00:05:09 these successful people i notiked three
00:05:07 00:05:12 common themes that turned a seemingly
00:05:09 00:05:14 stupid product into a success with the
00:05:12 00:05:16 first one being to be a maverick or to
00:05:14 00:05:18 do it different thinking kind of like
00:05:16 00:05:19 outside of the box all the products i've
00:05:18 00:05:21 done like you know millions of dollars
00:05:19 00:05:22 with they've been things that no one's
00:05:21 00:05:24 really selling or a few people are
00:05:22 00:05:26 selling you have to stand out and do
00:05:24 00:05:28 something different with 90 of
00:05:26 00:05:30 businesses failing eventually you can't
00:05:28 00:05:32 be successful by doing what literally
00:05:30 00:05:34 everyone else's the first two products
00:05:32 00:05:36 i'm selling are already extremely
00:05:34 00:05:38 popular on tiktok and the videos i'm
00:05:36 00:05:40 using to advertise have literally been
00:05:38 00:05:42 done hundreds of times so if i want to
00:05:40 00:05:44 have success with any of these products
00:05:42 00:05:46 i need to do something creative with the
00:05:44 00:05:49 advertisement that pushes on a customer
00:05:46 00:05:52 pain point down to again though the
00:05:49 00:05:54 marketing angle so what pain points can
00:05:52 00:05:55 you harp on the generic kind of like
00:05:54 00:05:57 strat with copying copying and copying
00:05:55 00:05:58 it just won't work because there's too
00:05:57 00:06:00 many people doing it so far in this
00:05:58 00:06:02 challenge i've tried to advertise in the
00:06:00 00:06:04 most basic way possible and it hasn't
00:06:02 00:06:07 really worked out as you guys can see we
00:06:04 00:06:08 spent nearly 60 on ads for this store
00:06:07 00:06:11 and now the other two ads managers the
00:06:08 00:06:13 budget barely spent but we're still down
00:06:11 00:06:15 about 50 overall the last piece of
00:06:13 00:06:17 advice i received was to focus on one
00:06:15 00:06:19 singular product and everyone seemed to
00:06:17 00:06:21 like the car air mattress the most i
00:06:19 00:06:22 like this one actually yeah i haven't
00:06:21 00:06:24 seen this out of all the three you just
00:06:22 00:06:25 showed by far is the most appeal this is
00:06:24 00:06:27 a great example of stuff that has
00:06:25 00:06:28 already sold on facebook but like not
00:06:27 00:06:30 really anyone selling it on tiktok
00:06:28 00:06:32 yeah you're gonna be better off picking
00:06:30 00:06:33 just one and not trying to do all three
00:06:32 00:06:35 at the same time so i spent the next few
00:06:33 00:06:37 days revamping the air mattress website
00:06:35 00:06:39 and brainstorming some legendary tik
00:06:37 00:06:41 tok ideas the two biggest selling
00:06:39 00:06:43 points for the car air mattress are
00:06:41 00:06:44 number one that you can save money on
00:06:43 00:06:46 road trips because instead of having to
00:06:44 00:06:48 get a hotel you can comfortably sleep in
00:06:46 00:06:50 your car that's a pretty simple concept
00:06:48 00:06:51 so i went out and filmed that this
00:06:50 00:06:53 morning but that brings us to selling
00:06:51 00:06:55 point number two if you live with your
00:06:53 00:06:56 parents but need a spot to take your
00:06:55 00:06:58 tinder date you can always set up the
00:06:56 00:07:00 car air mattress and have a comfortable
00:06:58 00:07:02 spot for recreational activities the
00:07:00 00:07:05 only issue being i've never successfully
00:07:02 00:07:07 secured a tinder date for some reason i
00:07:05 00:07:09 always get left on seed but today that
00:07:07 00:07:11 changes because i'm going to swipe on
00:07:09 00:07:13 tinder until my thumbs detach from the
00:07:11 00:07:15 palm of my hand it is now the night of
00:07:13 00:07:17 day six i've probably swiped right on
00:07:15 00:07:19 like a thousand females i need to secure
00:07:17 00:07:20 this date by tomorrow because my mom's
00:07:19 00:07:22 getting impatient about her gift and if
00:07:20 00:07:24 i don't get her anything soon i'm gonna
00:07:22 00:07:26 have to go back to college
00:07:24 00:07:28 your boy secured a tinder date but
00:07:26 00:07:30 before you guys get too excited she has
00:07:28 00:07:31 no idea about the drop shipping store
00:07:30 00:07:33 who knew that toking about drop
00:07:31 00:07:34 shipping is pretty much the equivalent
00:07:33 00:07:36 to wearing girl repellent i've been
00:07:34 00:07:38 toking to this girl for a while but it
00:07:36 00:07:40 just so happens that today we're gonna
00:07:38 00:07:41 hang out and at the end of it i'm gonna
00:07:40 00:07:43 ask her do you know how i do videos and
00:07:41 00:07:45 stuff yeah yeah i was wondering what are
00:07:43 00:07:46 your thoughts on being in a video at
00:07:45 00:07:48 some point i don't care that would be
00:07:46 00:07:50 fun sadly that's as far as the
00:07:48 00:07:52 conversation got unfortunately i failed
00:07:50 00:07:54 at securing my tinder date for the tik
00:07:52 00:07:55 tok ads but luckily i shot three tik
00:07:54 00:07:57 toks yesterday morning that i think
00:07:55 00:07:59 will work perfectly we only have three
00:07:57 00:08:02 days left in this challenge so i'm gonna
00:07:59 00:08:04 run five ad sets at 150 a day wish me
00:08:02 00:08:06 luck as ad budget spent the next few
00:08:04 00:08:08 days sales slowly came in it's
00:08:06 00:08:10 definitely nothing crazy but we're up to
00:08:08 00:08:12 six product sales on the day now goes to
00:08:10 00:08:14 show if you actually put a lot of effort
00:08:12 00:08:16 time and energy into something success
00:08:14 00:08:18 starts to come even if it's small at
00:08:16 00:08:21 first and that goes with any business if
00:08:18 00:08:23 you want success you genuinely have to
00:08:21 00:08:24 put in the hours so many people on the
00:08:23 00:08:26 internet make drop shipping or other
00:08:24 00:08:28 businesses seem easy but the truth is
00:08:26 00:08:30 it's a skill that can take you years to
00:08:28 00:08:32 make a substantial amount of money from
00:08:30 00:08:34 because honestly if it was easy why
00:08:32 00:08:36 wouldn't everyone do it on day 9 my ads
00:08:34 00:08:38 randomly stopped spending budget once
00:08:36 00:08:40 again i'm honestly so frustrated right
00:08:38 00:08:42 now we've literally run into this issue
00:08:40 00:08:44 like three other times during this
00:08:42 00:08:45 challenge and every time the ad stops
00:08:44 00:08:47 spending money for a different reason
00:08:45 00:08:49 but with some quick browsing on reddit
00:08:47 00:08:51 to come up with the solution ad started
00:08:49 00:08:54 running once again and i flew out to
00:08:51 00:08:55 california to meet up with a figure drop
00:08:54 00:08:57 shipper
00:08:55 00:08:59 what's up dude what's going on man come
00:08:57 00:08:59 on
00:09:04 00:09:08 you guys might recognize this guy from
00:09:06 00:09:10 his youtube channel or from his feature
00:09:08 00:09:12 earlier in this video but he's made well
00:09:10 00:09:14 over a million dollars drop shipping
00:09:12 00:09:16 multiple products i on the other hand
00:09:14 00:09:18 after taking an extremely deep dive into
00:09:16 00:09:21 drop shipping over the last 10 days came
00:09:18 00:09:23 out ahead with a small profit of 25 but
00:09:21 00:09:25 i'm just happy we didn't lose money and
00:09:23 00:09:26 most of that profit came in the last
