*** UPDATE: I am also including a ‘cheat sheet’ that walks you through the simple method I have been using to consistently find bestselling designs; more details below. ***
In my opinion, this is one of the simplest, yet most effective, methods for building an almost passive income I have ever come across.
And that isn’t the usual ‘hype’.
I am using the system myself and there is a massive stack of social proof from other people who are also using it that can’t be denied (more on both of these later in this post).
In a nutshell, the Low Hanging System (or ‘LHS’ for short) is all about creating very simple designs for mugs and other items, putting those items on Amazon and other ecommerce platforms and fulfilling orders using a ‘print-on-demand’ dropshipping company.
(I know you may be recoiling at the words ‘ecommerce’ and ‘dropshipping’ but please read on. This method is nothing like what other people are teaching and it’s far, far simpler.)
The dropshipper only creates the product when an order is received (hence, ‘print-on-demand’) and they then send it out to the customer for you.
This means that you never carry any stock and that the product and shipping costs are paid for out of the monies paid by the customer.
Your involvement in this business is creating the designs and passing details of the orders you receive to the dropshipper.
(And you’ll see how the second part can be fully automated.)
While this is not completely passive income, it’s about as close as you can get in a real business.
The two things that make Rachel’s method stand out from other dropshipping business models are…
- The ease with which you can create these designs (they are almost all exclusively text)
- The fact that no marketing, advertising or other promotion is required (most dropshipping models require you to pay to drive traffic to your listings)
I have been using Rachel’s method since late October last year.
I initially did so as a test as part of my review of the product for my subscribers.
However, it worked so well for me that I am now doing it as a serious ‘side business’.
And this is the perfect time to get involved, because sales in the period October to December typically exceed all of the other months of the year combined.
In the rest of this post, you will find my own results, answers to frequently asked questions, testimonials from existing members and much more.
But first, you need to see the system in action…
Rachel recently held a live webinar where she went through every step of the system live on screen.
It runs to around 1 hour and 45 minutes, but I recommend watching it if you can spare the time.
There is nothing quite like seeing the system walked through live on screen in front of you to demonstrate just how easy it is to implement.
However, if time is pressing, you can skip the replay and find everything you need to know in the rest of this review.
That said, here’s the replay…
If you are ready to get on board after watching the replay, please go here (otherwise, please read on)…
If you want further information, the rest of this review includes…
- A case study of how Rachel sold 2,748 of just one mug in less than 2 weeks (pretty amazing!)
- 9 reasons why I love the Low Hanging System
- A summary of what you get when you join
- My own results from using the system
- A selection of the glowing feedback from other members of the Low Hanging System
- Answers to the most common questions I have been getting from subscribers
How Rachel Sold 2,748 of Just One Mug in 2 Weeks
I have to say that I would have found this difficult to believe if I had not seen proof of Rachel’s results with my own eyes.
Rachel designed a mug for Mother’s Day in the US and listed it on Amazon.
(Mother’s Day in the US is held on the second Sunday of May.)
In the two weeks following, she sold 2,748 copies of this one mug, generating $53,821.16 in revenue.
And she did this using the ‘Low Hanging System’ with no paid advertising.
Taking out the cost of the mugs and Amazon selling fees, that is a net profit of somewhere between $27,000 and $30,000.
(It is not possible to be exact because Rachel did try tweaking the price a couple of times.)
All from that one mug… in just 2 weeks.
Would you like to see it?
Prepare to be underwhelmed…
Do you think you could have designed that?
It’s just simple text in a bog-standard font.
And it isn’t even particularly well-formatted.
Rachel has added a complete case study of how she did this to the Low Hanging System training.
- How she came up with the design (the exact source)
- How she crafted the complete listing on Amazon (word for word)
- Even the actual search terms she used in the listing (these are the terms people use to find your product and are normally a closely guarded secret)
- How she managed the campaign with actual results on a day to day basis, including how she tested things like changing the price to get more sales
- Proof of all the sales from inside her Amazon Seller Central account
I have been through this case study (twice) and there is nothing that Rachel did that couldn’t have been done by myself or any member of the Low Hanging System.
Would you be happy with just 10% of Rachel’s result?
Even 1% is not to be sniffed at.
And, remember, this is just from one mug in the run up to just one of many holidays in the calendar.
Rachel made almost double those figures if you take all of her mugs into account for the same two-week period.
Now, I’m not claiming that anyone can become a member and get results like Rachel right off the bat.
She has been doing this longer than any of us and she definitely has an ‘eye’ for what will sell well.
(That said, one member did make more than $10,000 in two days… more on that later.)
However, you only need to achieve a small fraction of what Rachel has to be making a very handsome income from this system.
By the way, I found this case study eye-opening.
I have been concentrating on tight niches, such a professions, where there is less competition.
Having seen what is possible, you can be sure that will change moving forward.
It has convinced me that this can be far more than a profitable ‘side business’.
And just to be clear, Rachel achieved those results without any paid advertising or promotion.
9 Reasons Why I Love the Low Hanging System
I am using the Low Hanging System myself and here are some of the reasons why I love it…
(1) This method is about as simple as it gets.
Most business opportunities that claim to be ‘simple’ turn out to be anything but.
Yes, there may only be a few steps involved.
But those steps usually require some skills or experience to implement that the author conveniently skates over.
They may be technical in nature, such as creating a website or a squeeze page, producing and uploading a video or constructing a sales funnel.
They may require copywriting skills, such as writing a sales letter, scripting a promotional video or putting together an effective Facebook ad campaign.
Or maybe marketing skills, such as finding good products to promote, devising a compelling squeeze page offer or deciding which offers to include in your sales funnel, where to place them and at what prices.
Or perhaps creative skills, such as putting together a squeeze page offer, a full-blown product or writing emails that convert into sales.
If you don’t have the necessary skills or experience, you either move onto the next thing or spend a great deal of time and energy (and maybe money) trying to acquire them, never really knowing whether you will eventually succeed.
In contrast, the Low Hanging System is genuinely simple…
- Do some simple and fast research to find a piece of text you can put on a mug
- Put the text on the mug
- List the mug on Amazon and other sites, such as eBay or Etsy
- When a sale comes in, put the details into your dropship account (this can be fully automated)
Rachel goes through a real life example from start to finish in the webinar recording so, if you haven’t watched it, please do so above.
And, no, you don’t need any ‘design skills’.
We are talking about ultra-simple – even ‘ugly’ – pure text designs.
If you can use a word processor, you have all the skills you need.
And you don’t have to do any advertising or promotion at all, so there are no marketing or copywriting skills required.
Anybody – and I do mean ANYBODY – can do this.
A child of 10 is doing it.
A senior of 78 is doing it.
People of all ages and backgrounds are doing it.
(2) You can devote as much or as little time as you want to this.
Again, many business opportunities claim that you can implement them very quickly.
After all, that’s what time-pressured people want to hear.
However, it’s seldom true.
And that’s because of the learning curve I have already talked about.
Yes, if you have the skills and experience, they may be fast.
But you can’t acquire skills or gain significant experience in a couple of hours a week.
The Low Hanging System is different.
It will take you a few hours to get through the training and get your first mug out there.
But, once you’ve done a couple, it really does only take 15 to 30 minutes to launch a new design.
(Again, watch the webinar replay and see exactly how long it took Rachel to research, create and launch a new design from start to finish.)
So, if your hectic life means that you really can only manage to grab the odd hour or two here and there, you will still make significant progress with this method.
If you can find a whole day once in a while, you will hugely accelerate that progress.
This isn’t just theory.
There are so many people in the Facebook group who are making regular sales on the back of a couple of hours a week. (And that includes me.)
(3) This is genuinely low – even zero – cost.
One of the biggest obstacles many ‘newbies’ face is having to spend money before they make money, particularly where the ‘make money’ bit isn’t guaranteed.
With the Low Hanging System, there are no ‘up-front’ costs to list a product on Amazon and there is no limit to how many listings you can create.
If you decide to also list on Etsy, which is completely optional, each listing will set you back 20 cents. (The ‘pay-back’ is that the selling costs are much lower than on Amazon, so you make more profit per sale.)
The remaining costs – the product and shipping costs and the Amazon or Etsy selling fees – are only incurred if and when you make a sale and come out of the price the customer pays.
So the only significant ‘cost’ is your time and you decide how much of that you want to invest.
Almost all business opportunities involve a trade-off between money and time.
The Low Hanging System is pretty unique in my experience in requiring both zero to little cost and little time.
(4) This builds passive income.
For me, one of the biggest attractions of the Low Hanging System is that it is all about building passive income.
Once you create a design and load it onto Amazon, it sits there essentially forever.
When you make a sale, you simply copy and paste the delivery details from Amazon into your dropship account and update Amazon when the order is dispatched.
And you don’t even have to do that if you use the bonus Amazon integration where sales and dispatches are handled automatically.
Think about that.
It will take you maybe 15 to 20 minutes to launch a new design.
Every sale that design makes after that is totally hands-free, whether that is tomorrow or 6 months down the line.
You did no further ‘work’ to generate the income you make from your sales.
And that, my friend, is a beautiful thing!
Of course, the more listings you have out there, the more sales you will make and the higher your passive income will be.
There are people in the Facebook group who are retired and using this method to build a hands-free income to supplement their inadequate pensions.
Work once, get paid over and over is one of the ‘secrets’ to wealth building.
But it’s far easier said than done and few people can pull it off.
That’s another reason why the Low Hanging System is so attractive.
It finally opens up the power of passive income to everybody, regardless of skills or experience.
(5) Real people are getting real results.
I have alluded to this already.
However, it is worth hammering home.
Few business opportunities provide ‘genuine’ testimonials.
Where they exist, they usually come from the author’s internet marketing colleagues (“you scratch my back and I’ll scratch yours”) or ‘tame’ subscribers who have been given the product for free in return for a glowing review.
It is very rare that you see reports from real customers who have actually bought and actually used a system and seen real results.
The Low Hanging System Facebook group has hundreds of unsolicited testimonials from members who are having success with the system.
That’s the sort of social proof that can’t be faked.
(Samples further down this post.)
It’s hugely inspiring for me and other members of the group, because most of these people have never made a penny online before.
(6) Rachel is walking the walk.
The sad truth is that most of the marketers promoting products and courses out there do not actually use the methods they teach.
Indeed, as often as not, they are simply taking somebody else’s method and promoting it to their list to make money, without ever even trying it for themselves.
Or they may get some one-off actual results and sell that as a ‘business’ before they move onto the next thing they can promote.
Rachel uses the Low Hanging System every day in her business.
She knows it inside out.
And that is clear from the numerous real-life examples and case studies she provides.
She discloses full details of actual products she has created and the actual results she has achieved.
In fact, I don’t think I have ever seen anybody be so open and revealing about every aspect of their business.
(Take as just one example, her full disclosure on the Mother’s Day case study described above.)
She could only do that if she was actually in the trenches doing this every day.
That gives the Low Hanging System an ‘authenticity’ few other courses can command.
It also makes it a living, breathing thing that evolves over time as Rachel tests new techniques and shares them with the members.
(7) The support is amazing.
There is a dedicated support email address that members can use to get help from Rachel herself.
However, far more impressive is the member’s only Facebook group.
I don’t think I’ve ever seen a more active, more passionate or more supportive group of people.
Post a question and dozens of fellow users jump in to offer help and encouragement.
Report a sale and everyone offers their congratulations.
If someone finds something that works for them, they share it.
It has a ‘family’ feel to it, with everyone genuinely rooting for everyone else’s success.
And Rachel is in there regularly, offering support and advice and sharing the results of things she is testing.
(8) Last but not least, it’s FUN!
In my lengthy experience, most ways to make money online seem like hard work.
Don’t get me wrong.
I make a very nice living online in ways that most people with a ‘day job’ would find very appealing.
I’m very thankful for that.
But it is the exception rather than the rule where I actually ENJOY what I am doing.
The Low Hanging System is very different.
Once you have become comfortable with it, coming up with designs is huge fun.
And it is immensely satisfying to put a product out there and have someone like it enough to put their hand in their pocket and actually buy it.
You didn’t have to slog away at getting them to see it or to persuade them why they really should buy it.
They found it. They liked it. They bought it.
I know that a lot of ‘newbies’ struggle with the whole ‘selling’ online thing.
They feel embarrassed or even a little ‘grubby’ trying to get people to part with their money, even if what they have to offer is well worth the investment.
The Low Hanging System is a real business selling real products to real people.
It is something you can feel happy and proud to share with your friends and family.
Finally, I want to answer a question that nobody has put to me but I’m sure is in a lot of minds…
(9) Will the Low Hanging System make you rich?
The answer is, “Possibly, but probably not”.
But that’s not what it’s all about.
You won’t find either Rachel or me claiming that this will make you a shed load of money by this time next Wednesday.
In fact, there isn’t really an ‘income claim’ anywhere to be seen regarding the Low Hanging System.
You should find this very refreshing.
In my experience, the chances of success with a method are inversely proportional to the size of the income claims made.
So how much can you make using Rachel’s system?
It quite simply depends on how much effort you put in.
Rachel personally makes a minimum of 5 figures a month with the Low Hanging System (much more over holiday periods), but nobody is claiming that she is typical.
One lady in the group made nearly $10,000 in two days from one mug.
Many members have given up their ‘day job’ and are making a full time income from this.
And, although I didn’t have a ‘day job’ to give up, I am earning in 2 to 4 hours a week what many people work 40 hours to bring home.
The bottom line is that this is very much a ‘numbers game’.
The more designs you put out there, the more sales you will make.
Some people hit gold with their first few designs.
Others may put 20 or 30 out there before they find a winner.
But the beauty of this method is that it is cumulative.
Your designs can sit there virtually forever, earning an essentially passive income for years to come.
I can’t tell you how much you will make with the Low Hanging System.
All I can tell you is, if you apply it consistently – even as little as a couple of hours a week like me – you WILL make money with it.
It may take a day or it may take a month.
But do it and you will make money.
How do I know?
Because there is nothing ‘clever’ about this, just a little bit of persistence.

My Own Results
One of the reasons I am so excited about the Low Hanging System is that I am using it myself and getting some pretty impressive results.
I originally only used the system as a test so I could give an informed opinion about it when I reviewed it for my subscribers.
However, it rapidly took on a life of its own and so I have been running it ever since as a profitable ‘side business’.
I started in late October 2016.
For the first couple of weeks, nothing happened.
Then I started getting a sale every other day or so.
Then one a day.
Then several sales a day.
Then things really took off…
This screenshot from my Etsy account shows that I had exactly 1,000 orders and $15,997.29 in revenue during November and December.
Profit margins vary by product, but an average of $9 an order is a fair estimate (actually, some of the orders were for multiple items, so this is conservative).
So that’s around $9,000 in pure profit in two months.
(I also made a further $2,000 in revenue – around $600 profit – on Amazon, but I have been focusing mainly on Etsy.)
If you find that surprising, so did I!
And that’s why I’m so keen on this system.
And this despite only being able to devote two to four hours over the weekends to this because of my other commitments.
Now, to be completely transparent, these results include the period Black Friday through to Christmas, which is far and away the biggest selling period of the whole year.
To bring things up to date, here are my results from the start of January through to the time of writing (May 24th)…
This is known to be the ‘slowest’ part of the year for ecommerce sales in general.
However, it still averages out to around 120 orders and $2,100 in revenue per month, with a week still to go in May.
Add to that the average 40 orders per month I am getting from Amazon and that makes around $1,400 per month in almost completely hands-free profits.
And this will start to grow significantly as we head towards a period of multiple holidays (and the biggest of all, Black Friday to Christmas).
This is despite other commitments preventing me adding more than a handful of mugs since the New Year.
There is no such thing as ‘money for nothing’, but this is as close as I have experienced in the real world.
I am in the UK and I am selling primarily in the US, so most of my sales come in overnight.
It really is a great start to the day when you open your email and find a handful of sales waiting for you.
And I haven’t begun to scratch the surface of the potential.
- There is no limit on how many designs I can put out there
- I have yet to transfer my designs onto T-shirts, hoodies, posters and other media
- I am not yet selling my wares on eBay or any of the other platforms Rachel recommends
The prospects are really exciting!
And I am nothing ‘special’.
I failed at art at school and I have to take advice on how to get dressed in the morning.
Virtually all of my mugs are of the ‘ugly’ pure text variety Rachel shows you how to create in the course.
There really is nothing stopping you doing the same.
To give this a try, sign-up here…
But I don’t want you to just take my word for it…
Here is just a small selection of feedback from the very active and very friendly Facebook group…

Your Questions Answered
Here are the answers to the most common questions I have been getting about the Low Hanging System…
Question: In very simple terms, how does the system work?
Answer: The process is explained in full with a live walkthrough in the webinar recording, which you can find at the top of this post.
However, here are the steps involved. I will use mugs as an example…
(1) Pick a niche.
There is no real ‘science’ to this because there are literally thousands of niches out there, from knitting to fishing to accountancy to cats to film and TV series fans and all points in between.
If in doubt, just type ‘X mugs’, where X is pretty much any niche, into Amazon.
If you see mugs in the search results, you know there is demand in that niche and you are good to go.
Should you be paralysed by the sheer number of niches, the course walks you through an easy way to make a choice.
(2) Find an idea for your mug.
There are a variety of methods for doing this, all of which are fully explained in the course, along with software tools to make the job even easier.
However, just one method is as simple as searching Pinterest for ‘funny X quotes’, where ‘X’ is your niche e.g. ‘funny knitting quotes’.
You are looking for simple quotes, jokes or sayings that will resonate with your niche.
(3) Create your design.
Contrary to what you might expect, this is the easiest part of an easy process.
As Rachel shows in the webinar, these are simple text designs.
The course shows you numerous free ways to create interesting text.
There is also an optional app you can buy for less than $5 to generate ‘fancier’ text styles.
However, you do it, it is a 5-minute job.
(4) Load your design onto GearBubble.
This is as simple as giving your product a name and uploading the image of your design.
The product is then ready to be dropshipped when you get orders.
GearBubble also creates different ‘mockups’ of your product i.e. images of mugs with your design on them from various angles and various settings.
You can download these for use in your listings.
(5) Do some simple keyword research.
You want to maximise the chances of people searching on sites like Amazon to find your mugs.
This is called ‘keyword research’ and involves finding the types of phrases people use to search.
Most Amazon vendors don’t do this at all.
They simply list their products and ‘hope for the best’.
However it is very easy to do once you know how, which Rachel shows you in the course.
The process may take 15 to 20 minutes the first time you do it in a new niche.
However, the results can then be applied to all of your future listings in that niche.
For example, you would only have to do it once for ‘knitting’ or for ‘golf’.
Building these keywords into your listings gives you an instant advantage over 90% of vendors who do not know how to take these simple steps.
Rachel provides checklists and even template listings inside the course that you can just tweak for different niches.
(6) List your product on Amazon.
Go to your Amazon Seller Central account and click to create a new listing.
Add a title, description and price and upload your product images from GearBubble and your item is listed and ready for sale.
You can also automate this process using the GearBubble to Amazon integration tool provided as one of the bonuses.
(7) Optionally list your product on other sites.
If you wish, you can also list your product on sites such as Etsy and eBay.
There are dozens of potential sites and Rachel provides a full list, along with how to use them, inside the course.
By the way, I currently only list on Amazon and Etsy but other members are seeing a lot of success on other platforms, so I will be jumping on some of those in the near future.
Once you have your listing on one platform, it is largely a matter of ‘copy and paste’ to add it to others.
(8) Process your orders.
With your listing up, you sit back and wait for sales to come in.
Amazon and the other sites send you an email when you make a sale.
You then simply go into GearBubble, find the product and copy and paste the recipient’s name and address into a form and let GearBubble get to work.
When GearBubble despatches the order, you then go into Amazon (or wherever the sale was made) and flag the item as despatched.
If you are using the bonus Amazon integration, this is all taken care of for you automatically.
That’s all there is to it.
Just 8 simple steps to create an ongoing and growing, almost completely passive, income stream.
You can entirely optionally do many things to ‘scale up’, all of which are covered in the course.
For example, once you are making regular sales of an item, you can use low-cost paid advertising on places like Amazon to boost sales even further.
You can also transfer your successful designs from mugs to a growing range of other products, such as T-shirts, hoodies, posters, necklaces, pillow cases, water bottles, travel mugs and leggings, all fulfilled by GearBubble.
Question: Do you have to sell mugs?
As I showed above, GearBubble provides a range of different products you can put your designs on, including T-shirts, pillow cases, posters, necklaces, water bottles, travel mugs and more.
However, mugs are the best choice as a ‘starter product’.
They are simple to create, are in high demand and can be offered at an ‘impulse buy’ price.
I recommend starting all of your designs on mugs.
Then, when you get a design that is selling, put it on a T-shirt and, if suitable, other products.
Rachel has tested this over many months and it is the most effective route.
Question: Can you do this if you aren’t based in the USA?
I am based in the UK and I am successfully selling on both Amazon and Etsy in the US.
Although I am not doing so at the moment, I could also do the same on eBay and the other sites we can list our products on.
Setting this up is seamless for most countries in the developed world and is covered in the training.
You list your products in Dollars and the selling sites convert your sales into your own currency when they make payment into your bank account.
Question: Can you sell in markets other than the US?
GearBubble (the fulfilment house we use) is based in the US but does deliver worldwide.
Delivery costs are surprisingly low; only $2 more than for US domestic shipping.
Delivery times are, of course, longer but customers expect this.
My recommendation would be to start with the US, because it is by far the largest and most receptive market.
You will find that you pick up some international orders from foreign nationals browsing the US listings (it’s around 10% for me).
Once you are successful in the US, you may want to consider expanding into other markets using alternative dropshippers based in those countries.
Question: How much time does this take to do?
Answer: As much or as little as you can or want to devote to it.
That may sound like a cop-out, but it’s true.
Your first product will take the longest, because you are learning the ropes and you will inevitably dither over what it should be.
The key here is to just get anything out there to get the ball rolling.
It effectively costs nothing and there is no limit to how many listings you can create.
After you have taken the training and created your accounts (just a few minutes each) that first product may take you an hour or two to get up and running.
Once that first one is under your belt and you realise how easy the process is, each subsequent product will take you less and less time.
That’s particularly true for new products in the same niche, since you can simply copy and tweak existing listings.
I have now got to the stage where I consistently turn out 3 or 4 new products an hour, from design to listing.
(There are members in the group who have got this down to 10 minutes a product, but I don’t think I’ll ever get to that stage!)
So the beauty of this system is that it can be fitted into almost any schedule, no matter how hectic.
If you have the occasional hour to spare, throw up 3 or 4 designs.
If you can devote a day to it, get stuck in and get 30 or 40 designs out there.
Which leads to the related question…
Question: How long before I start making money with this?
Answer: This is essentially a ‘numbers game’.
Quite simply, the more designs you have out there, the more opportunities there are for people to buy from you and the more money you will make and the sooner you will make it.
That said, there are many members who have started making sales after putting just a handful of designs – just two in a couple of cases – out there.
And there are some with very little time to devote to this who have taken a month to make their first sales.
Personally, other commitments mean that I have only been able to spend a couple of hours a week on this.
So I have been putting up only around 6 to 10 designs a week, but I am still making healthy sales.
(To add to the motivation, Rachel runs regular fun challenges with prizes for getting the most designs up over a weekend.)
Question: What happens after the first year of free GearBubble dropshipping and Amazon integration?
The bonuses include a free year of both GearBubble dropshipping and Amazon integration.
After the first year, you may have to pay for continued use of these facilities.
(I say “may” because Rachel has arranged special deals for LHS members in the past and she may well do so again in the future. However, that cannot be guaranteed.)
You can opt to either pay for this on a ‘per item’ basis, so you only pay when you make a sale, or on a subscription basis.
Either way, after a whole year of building your portfolio of products, the cost will be a relatively small part of your passive income.
To illustrate, suppose you are making a profit of $9 per mug sold.
After the first year, dropshipping would take $1 out of that and (if you use it) Amazon integration another $1.
That still leaves $7 of pure profit per mug for which you are doing virtually nothing to earn.
Alternatively, paying by monthly subscription would cost the equivalent of the profit from around 20 mugs per month.
You will be able to make that decision based on how your business is doing at the time.
Either way, a whole year is a long time to get your business established.
Question: Apart from the course fee, are there any other costs associated with running this business?
First off, there are none of those dreaded ‘upsells’.
The joining fee covers all of the training, software tools and resources (and, of course, the GearBubble bonuses).
You will not see an option to pay more for anything.
In terms of running the business, there are a few costs.
Principal amongst these are the selling fees charged by all platforms for selling your products.
These vary but are only paid out of profits if and when you make a sale.
There are no additional required costs to selling on Amazon.
Some other platforms do have additional up-front listing fees.
For example, Etsy charges 20 cents to list a product.
However, the ‘pay-back’ for this is that the selling fees are much lower on Etsy than on Amazon.
There are entirely optional costs should you choose to do some paid advertising, but you would only even consider doing that when you can finance it from your profits and you want to ‘scale-up’.
That’s it. There really are no additional costs to running this business.
Question: Is there a risk of this becoming ‘saturated’?
Answer: Absolutely not!
This is a common concern, especially when a system has a lot of members, like the Low Hanging System does.
But it truly isn’t an issue.
There are thousands of potential niches to go into.
There is an unlimited number of potential designs for each niche.
There are millions of potential customers on Amazon alone.
The chances of even scratching the surface of this potential is tiny, let alone getting anywhere near ‘saturation’.
Question: What if I have questions? Is there ongoing support?
This is a very simple process that is covered step-by-step in detail in the course, using videos, transcripts, checklist and templates.
However, if you still have questions at any point, there is a dedicated support email address.
There is also the most active and most friendly and helpful members-only Facebook group I have ever come across.
You can post questions here and have them answered by other members and by Rachel herself, who is inside on a regular basis.
But this group is not just there for support.
Members post their own motivational success stories and freely share ideas that are working for them.
Plus, Rachel regularly posts the results of new things she is testing.
One of the most uplifting features of the group is when a new member posts their first sale and everyone piles in to congratulate them.
Question: Is there a guarantee?
There is an unconditional 30-day money-back guarantee with the Low Hanging System.
That is more than enough time to take the training, get dozens of designs created and uploaded and start making sales.
In the unlikely event you don’t get results or you decide this just isn’t for you, simply ask for your money back.
Question: Doe this REALLY work?
It is working very well for me, despite not being a designer and not having touched ‘ecommerce’ before.
But, more importantly, it is working for hundreds of other people, most of whom have never made a penny online before.
If you want further reassurance, I invite you to read through some of the feedback I have included in this blog post.
Question: Do the Amazon and Etsy listings have to be renewed at intervals, or do they just sit there indefinitely?
Amazon listings remain in place indefinitely.
Etsy listings expire every 4 months.
You can renew them either manually or automatically at a cost of 20 cents per listing.
I personally let listings expire that have not had any sales and renew the ones that have.
Question: Is there a ‘cost’ that needs to be financed between paying GearBubble and getting paid by Amazon?
You pay GearBubble for the cost of the product plus shipping when you place the dropship order.
Amazon pays you the sales price plus shipping, less its selling fees, once the order has been shipped.
So, yes, there is a lag between paying GearBubble and getting paid by Amazon.
This can be anything up to 2 weeks.
However, in practice, this is not an issue.
I pay GearBubble with a credit card and receive funds from Amazon by bank transfer.
So, on average, I am getting 2 weeks of ‘free credit’ from my credit card company, which broadly matches cash in with cash out.
I hope that answers all of your questions and demonstrates that the Low Hanging System is something genuinely different and something anybody can succeed with, no matter what their previous experience.
Grab your place now and let yours be the next Low Hanging System success story…
