My first online venture was a burlesque clothing boutique, and started out as a fun side project. I was hoping to bring in an extra $200-$300 a month. Aside from that, I had no expectations. For a couple months, I continued perfecting the site, adding new products, and building a social community. In January of 2013, I decided to invest $50 in Facebook ads. Wow – best $50 I ever spent. I mocked up a quick ad using a product photo … and it exploded. I continued running the ad for the next six months. The page averaged 10,000 new likes a month at .03 cents per like. I went from less than $300 a month in revenue to over $10,000. And I’m gonna show you exactly how I built my first online business.
