Updates on what's up with Toadlane.com

CPO, New Stock, and Jail Broken iPhones that just went up ;)

Yes, we have apple and electronics distribution now. All products include a 30 day warranty, or if CPO (Certified Preowned) then the standard year warranty. They are all tested for full functionality and then graded based on appearance. While it is always tough to have an explicit grading scale or distribution partner has claimed that our grade A/B many exporters, especially to South America for example sell it as their Grade A and before that surprises you its pretty common practice, which is why we only align with people that give us access to special pricing which will be updated much more frequently with this new distribution channel of course. Heading to Florida this week.

I hope to see some of yall there!

CPO is cool? Heres the deal on video inspections

So the reason we allow the buyer and seller to schedule a seamless video inspection through Toadlane prior to release of funds is because a lot of refurbished phone companies have different standards and expectations for what grade A is or A/B so they price things a certain way because of this. For example this Certified Preowned iPhone 7 is a great price but dont you want to make sure your grade a is their grade a before you purchase? ABSOLUTELY!

HERE'S the thing about these WHOLESALE iPhone listings

So on a level of personally knowing people....these iPhone sellers got started with me when we were building Toadlane before it was even toadlane....when it was in alpha version in LA. This was before they could offer a million dollars of stock for sale on the site. 

 

Now I know some of you are going to see those minimum orders and are going to be like dang that’s too much. Well that is fine just order five or ten. Thats cool as well. We make it easy.  (Click and order a smaller amount and see)

Sign up bug fixed

By toadman |

Okay so we pushed through a lot of code, had a bug that was preventing people from signing up and I am so grateful to have found this.....so anyways it’s fixed now and we have some big big partners setting up their distribution. Remember you can keep your listings private. That means only whoever you want to  have access to your prices....they are the only ones that will.

My thoughts on ambition

By toadman |

 

 

So google is an amazing site in regards to how they direct traffic to your website. You don’t even think hey I’m gonna look something up. You just say your gonna google it which is basically a Verb that implies  Search. It’s genius. It’s like they bang it on your subconscious for so long you just know what it is without anyone telling you and all the smart brain people graduate have a bunch of kids and work for these companies. Or you have some people that risk jumping out of that frequency to create something. Which is very very risky. The reason is because it takes time which is dictated by your mental stamina. Much like the Fibonacci spiral things will only grow so if your persistent things will naturally improve so if you have a goal you should naturally just stick to it because it only makes sense. But these are just general thoughts. I am well aware things are about to start getting real in regards to site traffic and oh my gosh our distribution. I am so excited about our distribution partners but it’s one thing to get excited and it’s only a few more days to just do it. 

Those are my thoughts :)

Private listings is a thing now

By toadman |

Yes there have been a lot of updates pushed through. And here is another one. Keep your listings private  and between your friends. Pretty cool right? A friend of mine made this suggestion and I felt like it was a pretty cool idea. Sometimes a supplier doesnt want everyone to know their prices. Sometimes thats part of an overal strategy. So here you go.

Im so shy and embarrassed but here are some more updates (Plus LONZO rant)

Alright alright.....so a little advice to all those young entreprenuers out there...recruiting talent is single handedly one of the most important things one can do. IMPORTANT. CRUCIAL. And really its about finding that culture that enables success and takes everyone to the next level.

You will have to excuse me for a second...I am a life long lakers fan and this kid LONZO BALL they recruited is an example of how a single talent can literally transform the entire culture of a team. He passes the ball, records a high amount of assists, and if you think about it if a person scores "20 points and 10 assists" plus whatever rebounds that means that this kid that just turned 21 is controlling atleast 30-40% of a historic franchise and the team win share has only jumped over the last few years. 

And thats what happens when a company hires you in general. Its a little gamble but as you increase their winshare they get to slowly purchase your time and eventually your soul but only if you love it so thats exciting or you can make money with us but only if you love us!

With that said, we had a strategy going in with how we were going to approach building Toadlane and I think we have done a pretty good job but the general public hasnt really seen the backend work.......seeing it now for sure :} but much like the Lakers we had to slowly put together building pieces and while it allowed us to build a foundation we are excited about now we gotta slowly start bringing on the big guns. Just checking out Toadlane over the last 24 hours you will notice some big improvements are on the way and we are just just getting started.

There are legit millionaires and billionaires on the site. Huge buyers and huge sellers so we really need to focus rebuilding these distribution channels through these new tools that we have laid out. Whether you are just getting started as a drop shipper or you gotta lotta money but you really really need a lot more money, or you just need ONE more income stream (joke), we are building these tools for you so message me and lets get going with your distribution!
