How I got my first 3 customers and the steps for you to do the same.

I always loved buying on ebay and finding the best prices for products worldwide. I always tried to teach people how to do the same, but nobody wanted to go to the trouble. So when my dentist in Brasil asked me for a product that was only available in Europe (and could be bought online easily) I tough that people dont want to learn how to buy things, they want someone to make it easy for them to get it.

I then created a website with shopify in a week spending less then 100 dollars, and with no inventory. I started selling to Brasil using Google Adwords, which worked really well for me because I´ve read the book Adwords for Dummies, and with that alone my online campaigns wore a lot better then all of my competitors.
