Kids these days. In my time we'd at least photoshop the image a tiny bit and make some small effort not to advertise shopify.com every time someone mouses over a picture. And we'd do it after walking uphill in the snow to get to school - both ways.
Like this one from innovative millenial:
Nobody would ever find the exact same pic on Alibaba or would one?https://www.alibaba.com/product-detail/ ... 14329.htmlhttps://www.aliexpress.com/item/2018-Fa ... 52988.html
orhttps://8banana.com/products/creative-f ... uple-watch
Note to the lazy internet cheese marketer: if you can spring for the minimum quantity of 50 the product is 1.77 at Alibaba. Aliexpress will hit you for 4 bucks but without the minimum. This can go as high as 20.00 at 8banana (also shopify dependent) - as opposed to innovative millenial where the product is on sale for 40.00.
Shopify with stock photos, drop shipping probably by Oberlo and you too can bring in the big bucks from shut-ins and assorted cretins. It's like staring into a gaseous nebula to witness the birth of a star except this time it's the birth of a marketing scheme that makes the Merm look like Warren fucking Buffet.
There is nothing about this whole thing that suggests an investment beyond a dumpster-grade laptop and an overpriced coffee shop with free wifi. No need to invoke the more expensive option of operating out of mom's basement with a broadband supplier. Don't stay too long without ordering a latte if employing the more obvious solution.
What the fuck ever happened to lemonade stands to make a little scratch? Or maybe a strategic alliance with a local girl scout - those thin mints sell very well at a tidy profit to say nothing of s'mores. Break the boxes, sell them individually in little baggies and charge 3.00 a piece.
Rewster and I must be getting old.
On the brighter side it's shit like this that makes curated microbrand sellers look like a Grand Seiko boutique in contrast. Microbrands.store probably rates a digital ticker tape parade from us cantankerous old fucks. Comparatively speaking that is.
And the fact I'm still living rent free in his head makes me grin and giggle.
