We are Frank and Bobbetta Johnson.
We’re an average family and we have stuff.
We have lots of stuff.
We have stuff in our garage and in our rented storage unit. Stuff we’ve accumulated over almost 24 years of marriage.
We have books (Frank collected them for years and years and years – refusing to get rid of them). You can see some of them hiding behind other stuff on these shelves. This is only a small fraction (the last time I counted – a few years ago – there were easily over 5,000 books in my collection).
We have 24-year-old wedding presents (!). No, the soccer game was not a wedding present, but many presents are hiding in all those blue bins.
We have sports equipment from our daughter’s childhood.
It’s become largely unmanageable and so we’ve decided to sell as much as we can.
We’ve dabbled in eBay, Amazon merchant-fulfilled sales, Amazon FBA sales, local Facebook “For Sale” groups, Craigslist, and local selling apps. Our experience with dabbling has also led us to believe that even after we sell all of our “treasures,” selling online has the potential to become a full-time business for us. So we’ve now decided to do more than dabble – this will take a gargantuan effort!
With Bobbetta’s love of crafting and photography and Frank’s experience as the Director of eMarketing at an Internet Retailer Second 500 Company, we believe we are uniquely qualified to share with you how an average family can leverage today’s digital opportunities to sell and earn part-time or full-time income.
So join us on our journey as we explore different online selling platforms (Amazon FBA, Amazon Merchant-Fulfilled, eBay, Etsy, Shopify, Magento, WooCommerce, thredUP, Craigslist, etc.), experiment with various marketing channels (affiliate programs, comparison shopping, display advertising, pay-per-click, programmatic, retargeting, SEO, social media, etc.), and evaluate additional monetization opportunities (advertising, affiliate links, ebooks, online courses, etc.)!
We can guarantee you the journey will not be boring!
