In fact, an alarming number of businesses have shuttered throughout 2020. With people unable to go shopping in the traditional way they have become accustomed to; online shopping has been booming. The world of e-commerce has seen enormous profits this year, some of which Bailey has managed to get his hands on.

Bailey’s rise to the success he enjoys today really took off while he was still working a regular job. He met a man named Jay, who was enjoying success as an entrepreneur online. Being excited at the potential for himself doing something similar, Bailey ended up becoming friends with Jay and even working with him to develop a joint business that ended up growing incredibly fast.

Establishing his dropshipping business was something he was doing during his breaks while working, as well as working well into the night, including weekends and early mornings. All of his hard work paid off in the end because Bailey has pulled in a massive £1M+ revenue since lockdown.

To achieve this level of success, and in an industry that has already had plenty of competition, Bailey had to do things differently. To gain an edge, he learned all about branding and digital marketing. This ensured that he would capture peoples’ attention and generate more leads and sales. It worked, and Bailey started seeing a big influx of customers who were buying from his dropshipping business. Pretty soon, it became an avalanche of orders, which was also challenging to keep up with fulfilling.

Being his own boss and being able to be location-independent is that sort of freedom Bailey wishes for everyone to have. He has been much more fulfilled and happier ever since seeing all of his hard work pay off.
