Success Stories From Those Who Turned Their Love & Passion For Adventure Travel, Fitness, & The Outdoors Into A Profitable Business
Flipping used items that you find at garage sales, thrift stores, auctions, online marketplaces… is an easy way to make some extra cash. Easy, but quite time consuming.
Retail arbitrage is another option to “flip” products that you buy at retail stores ( or their online version ), and sell them on sites like eBay, Amazon, stocks.com and others.
You can even buy products at Amazon, and resell ( “flip” ) them on eBay, and vice versa.
The biggest advantages of retail arbitrage are time, product quality, and often profit margins.
While you can flip anything, in this post we’ll use ( Adidas ) sneakers as an example.
Why sneakers ?
Forbes estimates that the resale market for sneakers is estimated to be over $1 billion annually.
This is also trend that doesn’t appear to be slowing anytime soon. That same Forbes article notes that the international sneaker market is up 40% since 2004.
Even though only an estimated 4% of sneakers end up being purchased for immediate resale, the market has attracted side hustlers and entrepreneurs. At the top of the heap, some resellers are moving more than $2 million in inventory a year.
People are making astronomical amounts of money flipping shoes like Air Jordans, Yeezy and more. Don’t just take my word for it, Google “how to make money flipping sneakers”, and you’ll find tons of information !
Unfortunately, just like with anything about “how to make money”/”business opportunities”, most of that information is outdated, misleading, or straight up useless.
Here are a few practical ( and up to date 2019 ) tips about how to make money reselling sneakers :
- know which sneakers to buy/resell
- know the price ( and markup price ! )
- where to buy/sell
- how to spot fakes
- how to maintain your inventory
- how to scale up your sneaker reselling business
The market for sneakers is booming, driven by millennial demand and a strategic business approach by the major players. According to SportsOneSource, the international sneaker market has grown by more than 40% since 2004, to an estimated $55 billion.
But keep in mind !
Retail arbitrage is not as easy as it sounds !
While ANYBODY can flip a few products, it takes times, effort, and money to make consistant profitable living with retail arbitrage !
And while the knowledge of brands, and their products is important, the knowledge of business, and marketing is what will make all the difference !

If you already know the difference between Amazon Influencer program vs Amazon affiliate one, but not sure which one to join, hopefully the video below will make things easier for you to decide.
Before you apply for either program, ask yourself the questions from the video, and really take time to think which program would work better for you :
But the most important questions to ask yourself :
- Are YOU willing to learn at least the basics of business, marketing, and branding ?
- Are you in for “the long run” or just think you can make easy money ?
- Do you genuinely want to help people make unbiased purchasing decisions based on your personal knowledge and expertise, or you just want to create a vision of being “important social media influencer” ?
The most important advice I can give to people who’re thinking about joining Amazon affiliate or Amazon Influencer programs – be realistic about how much money you can make in the beginning.

BOSU Ball is a very innovative, and a very unique product that I’ve personally been using ( and promoting ! ) since 2006. Back in the days, when I worked as a personal trainer, I had many clients with knee, and lower back problems, and I used BOSU Ball to help them improve balance, stability, and core strength.
BOSU Ball ( which, in case you didn’t know, stands for “Both Sides Up” ), is mainly used for stability, and core strengthening training which makes it quite a niche product.
While it’s fun to use it for anybody, one must be a very knowledgeable, and experienced certified trainer to provide results for his/her clients using BOSU Ball training.
Today, the term “BOSU” has evolved beyond the product to now mean “Both Sides Utilized,” a mindful approach to exercise that is a step beyond traditional training. This clarity of who we are and what we want to offer inspired the development of additional BOSU® products and programming, all of which are grounded in exercise science and proven in real-life application.
If you’re a certified personal trainer who’s looking for more business opportunities while building his/her personal brand, and continue physical education, BOSU offers a great Ambassadorship opportunity to qualified trainers :
The BOSU® Education Team is a large network of fitness industry professionals that develop, deliver and promote BOSU® products and programming worldwide. We are excited that you are interested in becoming a BOSU® Ambassador. Below, you will find the benefits of being a BOSU® Ambassador.

But if you don’t get picked, no worries !
If you love using BOSU Ball in your workouts, want to help others get the benefits of BOSU training, AND make money, you can still promote BOSU products through Amazon affiliate or Amazon Influencer programs !
Truth to be told…
If you try to promote JUST BOSU Ball products, chances are, you WON’T make a whole lot of $$$…
