Personally, I do not know how people do it. I sell sneakers at sneaker stores, but I would never resell sneakers. I guess I am too much of a sneakerhead for that.
Besides, people who resell sneakers are trying to intentionally capitalize off the insatiability of your typical sneakerhead who will begrudgingly shell out more than $1000 over the retail value for a shoe they want in their collection.
However, it is a growing business and an insanely profitable hustle, so I figured I would put together this guide to show you exactly how you can create a really sophisticated and thriving business reselling sneakers.
All of the people who resell sneakers aren’t unethical. Some of them are sneakerheads too and their service is invaluable. Often times, without the dead stock of a reseller, a collector may not be able to get their hands on a particular shoe. For that reason, the culture actually needs more resellers and more of them doing it the right way.
Do Not Resell Sneakers On Instagram, Ebay, or Amazon
Instead, I can show you a much more sophisticated way to resell sneakers and the best part about it – you’ll effectively be cutting out the middle man and their fees, like the ones associated with Ebay and Amazon or the middle man and the hassle of all the DMs it will take to get that sneaker from New York to the middle of Kentucky to an Instagram follower.
Rest assured, I will not be walking you down into a dark abyss. I am personally going to take you by the hand and show you step-by-step how to make profits reselling sneakers. I am so sincere about your success, as you continue to read, you will be able to take action immediately and you will be on the road to running your very own business with the support of myself and an entire network of people who genuinely want to see your business take off.
How To Resell Sneakers In 3 Yeezy Steps …. oops … I meant in 3 EASY Steps
Step 1 – A Place To House Your Collection or Dead Stock (A Website)
You are probably saying, “Oh yeah!!! I can resell sneakers on my very own website. I don’t need Amazon, Ebay, or Instagram. People can come right to me and make their payments right on my site, the money goes into my Paypal and I’m good.” You are right! However, that is the bonus of having a website.
You need a website so you can start connecting with people. The connections you will make as an owner of a website, the amount of engagement, the ability you will have to position yourself as an expert or an authority are way more profitable than any store or Instagram account! Why? Because the people you are engaging with are potential customers and when you have a website and you are the boss, they have the potential to become a fan and that is where the money is over the course of your business. Repeat customers are the foundation of any business and creating them online is a piece of cake when you have me and my crew behind you.
You can easily have a website set up in 10 minutes. These website builders are user friendly in the sense that – as long as you can read and click on stuff you can build a website. Building a website in 10 minutes? What more of a confidence boost do you need. It is literally that easy.
If you were able to build a website, what would you call it? Think of a few names and plug it into this little tool to see if it is available. If you have an available name, start building your site NOW.
This website has all the trappings you need. It is fully functional and really easy to use. When you build your site, you will have access to Wealthy Affiliate, a network of real people who will train you and help you resell sneakers like a pro.
Step 2: Your Spot Needs To Be Seen! (Get Traffic to your site)
If you took action in Step 1, then you now have a website and a whole group of people who are willing to pitch in and help you promote your site. That is a huge step. Now, you have to get your site seen by people.
In case you didn’t now, at any given time, there is over a billion people online. That said, the amount of potential you have to reach them is far greater than the reach of even the biggest retailer. The only way to reach that amount of people is through a website. For that reason, once you have a website, the world is your oyster if you have something to sell. It just so happens there are more people in the world that wear sneakers than there are that aren’t. You’ve picked an excellent hustle.
Getting traffic does take training. It also takes a lot of support. The website you built granted you access to Wealthy Affiliate and all of your training and support is included for free. If you think I am blowing smoke, and you skipped Step 1, you can start here as well. I understand that some people like to know if they can do something before they actually do it. If you want to start training or see how extensive the training is sign-up directly at Wealthy Affiliate.
