Biaheza, a successful entrepreneur started his journey into eCommerce during his 5th or 6th grade. It was the time he got to upload his first video on YouTube. Also, while in middle school, he did graphic designing on Fiverr. At the age of 11 years old, Biaheza downloaded his first Instagram app. At first, he intended to upload cool pictures and show his photography skills. However, after a few years, Biaheza realized that Instagram is not just a photo editing app but a social media platform. Back then, he quickly noticed some impressive pages with high followings, which spurred him into starting something similar.
Even though Biaheza was motivated, he had no clue that the page owners were generating money. Before long, a person page focusing on photography niche was created by him. Initially, the pages accrued no followings, but he remained resolute about the whole thing. With hustling spirit, middle school fees, and the background, Biaheza had to source for money, but he was too young. Along the line, he got his first unofficial job as he helped a brand pass product leaflets around the neighborhood.
At the age of 16, when he could work officially, Biaheza got a job with a mall department store. It was during this period that one of his pages began to gain traction. And within a short time, Biaheza sold his first shout-outs for 10 dollars with 13,000 followers. Afterward, he realized that something could be achieved from the whole process. So, he kept husting and selling more shout-outs, even though sometimes he didn’t get anything from it. However, during this period, he realized that the people who he was selling shout-outs for were simply promoting products for another company but through their website in a concept known as Dropshipping.
After Biaheza’s 17th birthday, one of his pages had 20,000 followers. So, Biaheza decided to research more about dropshipping. During his research, he found a product which most people were promoting, and he followed the trend. Due to his experience in eCommerce, he already understands what he had to do. During his first promotion, Biaheza made some sales, but it wasn’t profitable. Therefore, he returned to growing his pages so that he can eventually use them to advertise rather than paying others for the advertisement. In this period, he was always online posting materials, images, and stuff that would drive traffic to his page. Before long, Biaheza gained admission into the university while at the same got a new job with a brand that supplies inflatable materials such as waterslides. All these made him quite busy.
Funnily, it was during this period that he made his first 500 dollars for selling shout-outs. Then, Biaheza started earning about 1000 dollars and more. But considering the difficulties and stress of handling shout-outs post, Biaheza had to abandon it for dropshipping. Once more, he decided to find a top-selling product for pitching. Fortunately, Biaheza’s effort was rewarded when he promoted the product through different sources and the website, which he developed for it. After the first impressive result, Biaheza decided to promote the product again through all his pages. And this time, it went viral.
Between September 1st and 2nd, Biaheza earned 531 dollars with an online conversion rate of 1.25%. With such an encouraging outcome, he retook the ad and reposted on many more pages, including his websites. The result earned him 33,488 dollars between Sept 2nd and 30th. After removing marketing costs and other expenses from the money, Biaheza made a profit of 25,000 dollars – a significant amount of money to someone like him. However, he decided not to relax. Between Oct 1st and Oct 31st, Biaheza made 25,572.85 dollars with a conversion rate of 1.43%, which is a drop compared to his previous sales. The decline could be attributed to his lack of time, as he was working on getting the necessary documentation to support his business.
At the start of November, Biaheza decided to run a Black-Friday campaign, and it resulted in a massive win for him. Biaheza accrued $53,372.77, with a conversion rate of 1.78%. At this point, he decided to quit his jobs and focus on dropshipping. Things even got better when Biaheza decided to pitch some other top-selling products, but this time, he had done his research about Facebook ads and found some exciting marketing features. Biaheza promoted the products through Facebook ads and other pages. By April 2019, he made a sale of 136,208.94 dollars, with an increased conversion rate of 6%. Although using Facebook ads gave him a small profit margin, it was an easy marketing tool to scale for Biaheza. By May 2019, he made 324,476.75 dollars with a conversion rate of 5%. After removing marketing costs and other expenses, Biaheza made a profit of $100,000.
