Ever wanted to make real money online. Do you have a green thumb? Even if you don’t, you can make money. Here’s How!
In this day and age of computers, scams, and get rich quick schemes, it’s nice to find a real opportunity to make some money on-line. Now I’m not claiming that you’ll get rich or famous or even be able to support yourself on this income. I’m just saying that it does exist and that if a person works hard at it, you will make “some” money. I make no claims here.
My story started out one day on the internet looking for a specific tomato variety. I had grown that variety long ago and wanted it again. I found it through several sources, though it was really expensive as seeds go. Many websites were asking as much as $4.95 for a packet of 30 seeds. I thought that was ridiculous. Now if you’ve ever grown tomatoes or even eaten one, you’ll know how many little seeds there are in one tomato. Please don’t start counting. Just trust me, there’s plenty. Well, I decided to look for tomato seeds in bulk. That way, I could have my seed and sell the rest. I though if other websites were selling these little jewels for $4.95; I could easily sell my extras for $2.oo per pack.
Well, now you get the picture. I ordered a quarter of an ounce of seed and wha-la, I was in business. I think I spent about $16.00 for the seed and postage. When I opened my quarter of an ounce seed pack, to my surprise there was about 2000 seeds. My only problem was where to get the seed packs. So, I jumped in the car and went to my local office supply. They had little yellow envelopes just the right size for my seeds. I bought 500 for about $20.00. Now that’s a very small investment makes when you add up the proceeds. I had enough seeds for about 65 packs of seed so 65packsX$2.00@=$130.00. I ended up with about $94.00 profit. It gets better.
After you sell your first batch of seeds, you still have about 435 little yellow envelopes. You can order more seed and make even more money since you have already paid for your envelopes. You ask where do I sell seeds though. Well, I sold them on an auction website that I won’t name. But you probably have heard of. I charged my customers 50 cents postage so I wouldn’t have to pay for the stamps. I received my payments through pay-pal.
I’ve made enough money from this little venture to start my own Garden Marketplace Auction. The auction is in its infancy, but with care it will grow just like my tomatoes did.
