How Many??

Hello My Hustlers, How's The Hustle?

Is it possible to have to many online stores when it comes to selling your products? I know it's hard to have an online store when it comes to selling your service. If you have a service hustle you can create an online store to sell your e books, Tshirts with your name or quotes on them etc. You get the idea. But how many is to many online store to have  when it comes to selling stuff 3,7,15?
Some say one is enough that way it allows you to concentrate on just that one. Some say two is good because your two stores might get different customer traffic form different places.

Personally I have 3 online store but they are all different. One sells T shirts & things,  one is my bookstore and one is my yard sale store. All of my stores sell different things for different reasons. Yes it's a pain to promote them but then I am a sucker for free stuff and opening up an online store is free. The promoting will cost you, you have to work to promote it. which I do. You might have to  pay some money to promote which I try not to do that. I try and do my hustle within a fixed budget.  So back to the question how many stores for your hustle is to many?

Realize the work that goes into your online store, first finding a free one, then setting it up with merchandise, finding a way for buyers to pay you like setting up a PayPal Or Stripe account.. Then promoting it. You know everybody has a online store nowadays selling mostly  everything. You can always go the way of auction sites like E bay. But E- bay has some issues, so to me it's better to just open my own online store . That way I can control it better.
But how many stores I would say start with one and see how it goes from there. If it's successful then branch out. Remember you need only one to test the online store waters and make sure it's a free one with no hidden fees.

Blogging

Hello My Hustlers, How the hustle going?

Today I am talking about blogging, Since that is all the rage right now. When it comes  to your hustle it's a good idea to blog about it among other things. As you can see I have about 3 different blogs myself which I use like I would a website. I post content, put advertisement on my blogs, sell stuff from my blogs. I love  blogging but that's just me. Ask me how much I have made from all this blogging I will tell you...……...0. Some people make money some don't. But don't let that discourage you . You should have a blog so that you can promote your products and services and to  maybe make a little bit of money from advertiser from it. 
Remember always look for a way to get a free blog like I have from e blogger. Here are some other free blog sites  to build your blog on Wordpress, Web.com, SimpleSite & Wix.  I have found 
E blogger and SimpleSite pretty easy to do.
Once you have your name for your blog which is whatever your hustle is. Then add some picture , content and keep it simple. This way you can drive  online traffic to your blog site. Which in return they can read your content, buy your products or book an appointment with you for your services. They might even use some of your advertisers services that way you  can get a small commission from that to. Every dime counts when your hustling. Also try and add a personal touch to your blog. Don't always sell. Let the readers know you as a person. 
I mainly use my blogs to promote my online stores, my podcast and to share my lifestyle with others . If I make money from my blogs  great. If not then I am still getting the traffic to promote other things and I am meeting new people in the process. Which is a win win in my book any hustling day.
There are also some great YouTube videos out to show you how to set a  simple & easy blog. 

Happy Hustling

Pinterest


Hello My Hustlers, How the hustle?

Today I am talking to you about Pinterest. Which is a social media platform. I know we all know Facebook, Twitter. and especially Instagram but do you know Pinterest?   Don't sleep on Pinterest because if you do you might miss the boat when it comes to making sales for your hustle. First the good thing about Pinterest is that it's free to set up a business account or a personal account. I have a personal one for now. But on my personal board I do have my hustle boards as well.


Pinterest works like a pin up board you have a topic let's say for example I have a board about Crazy Cakes. I use that board to post crazy looking cakes and things related to crazy looking cakes. Using Pinterest is easy. Now for your hustle if you are selling a service or item. You would open a business account then you would create boards that's related to your hustle and your personal interest to. The reason I say that is because your business account should have something about your personal interest as well. People don't always want you selling them stuff all the time they want to know you.

They offer some great videos on YouTube on how to get started on Pinterest. And how to open a business account step by step. The reason I am telling you this is that Pinterest has millions of people on their platform and if you could get 3%  in sales from these people you would be doing ok.  Heck if you get 1% your still good in my book. This is another way to draw traffic to your hustle. 
For free at that.

Happy Hustling

Good Hustle Idea

 
                                             Hello My Hustlers, How's the Hustle going?

 
I was reading this article about how this reporter started a hustle for less then $600. He had an ideas and set it up and then ran with it. Thought it was pretty interesting. So here's the link to it

https://www.cnbc.com/2018/05/04/how-to-start-a-profitable-business-with-less-than-500-in-two-weeks.html

It was interesting in the fact that with a bit of efforts he started out of the gate making money. I like doing that. Even thought his idea was a hit. Sometimes  it takes times to get the right idea, the money and the time to hustle. But no matter what your hustle or story is I am here to say you can do this!
Heck I might try this myself with $100 or less. I just need a good idea.
