AliExpress Stores Review Update

Yep, it’s time for an AliExpress Stores review. That’s even though I first introduced you to them last week! That was when I wrote about the Xpress Stores Pro plugin and how it helped me to create 4 of my very own online stores. You can read that post here. That post also had a video showing you just how easy it is to create those stores. Naturally the post also has links to my online stores. Even if you did happen to check out those stores I’d have another look because tanks to FlexSqueeze2 I’ve made some minor adjustments and they look even better.  :whistle:

AliExpress Stores Review And Progress Update

AliExpress Stores Review

Yep, only a week and I’ve made my first ever sale! So, what did I sell, I’m so glad you asked.  :tongue_laugh_ee:

AliExpress Stores Review 2

That link takes you to the smart band bracelet I wrote about in this post. It wasn’t that post that sold it though as I wrote that after the sale. To my best knowledge this is the sales page that sold the smart band bracelet, which was probably accessed from the smart wristbands product page.

It took me over a year to make my first sale with Amazon and apart from stuff I’ve personally sold I’ve never made any money on eBay. Probably would have helped if I had an eBay store. :wink_ee: So, to get an almost instant sale from my first ever online store I think is pretty impressive.

Naturally it could have been a fluke, but it’s been my experience that flukes rarely happen in the online sales world.

What I have to do now is to promote those stores. and I reckon the best way to generate more interest. I’m hoping by writing more posts about products for sale in those stores linking to those products is the way to go. Just like the one I linked to in this post. Hopefully Google and other search engines will also pick up on those posts and start sending more traffic to my stores.`

Seniors Make You Laugh Friday Funnies #198


Before I get to our Friday Funnies, did you know that eBay has some great deals on joke books and stuff?

Lets face it jokes about seniors make you laugh. I’m sure most times when seniors make you laugh that it’s not entirely what they intended. It’s just that they do stuff for whatever reason and some folks out there find it incredibly funny. I’ve done a lot of Senior Citizens Jokes including  Friday Funnies #162 and Friday Funnies #45 Senior Citizens & Sexy Pranks and they’ve always gone down really well. Which is why I’m adding another Seniors Make You Laugh jokes to the collection.

Seniors Make You Laugh Stuff They Go Through

The other day I went over to our nearby Pharmacy. When I got there, I went straight to the back of the store to where the Pharmacists’ Counter is located and took out my little brown bottle along with a teaspoon and laid them both onto the counter.

The pharmacist came over smiled and asked if he could help me. I said, “Yes! Could you please taste this for me?”

Being I’m a senior citizen … I guess the Pharmacist just went along with me and picked up the spoon and put a tiny bit of the liquid on his tongue and swilled it around.

Then with a stomach-churning look on his face he spit it out on the floor and began coughing.

When he finally was finished, I looked him right in the eye and asked, “Now, does that taste sweet to you?”

The pharmacist, shaking his head back and forth with a venomous look in his eyes yelled, “HELL NO!!!”

So I said, “Oh thank God! That’s a real relief! My doctor told me to get a pharmacist to test my urine for sugar!”

Well, I can never go back to that Pharmacy but I really don’t care though, because they just aren’t very friendly there anyway.

Yep, seniors have been around long enough that they know how to make people pay for shit that happens to them in the past.

Seniors Make You Laugh When Eyesight Dims

Seniors make you laughYesterday my daughter e-mailed me again, asking why I didn’t do something useful with my time.

“Like sitting around the pool and drinking wine is not a good thing?” I asked.

Her talking about my “doing-something-useful” seems to be her favorite topic of conversation.

She was “only thinking of me”, she said and suggested that I go down to the Senior Center and hang out with the girls.

I did this and when I got home last night, I decided to play a trick on her. I e-mailed her and told her that I had joined a Parachute Club.

She replied, “Are you nuts? You are 78 years old and now you’re going to start jumping out of airplanes?”

I told her that I even got a Membership Card and e-mailed a copy to her.

She immediately telephoned me and yelled, “Good grief, Mum, where are your glasses? This is a Membership to a Prostitute Club, not a Parachute Club.”

“Oh dear. I’m in trouble again,” I said, “I really don’t know what to do. I signed up for five jumps a week!!”

The line went quiet and her friend picked up the phone and said that my daughter had fainted.

Life as a Senior Citizen is not getting any easier, but sometimes it can be ever so much fun.

Yeah, I’m sure that there are a lot of seniors out there who would laugh out loud at that one.

Seniors make You Laugh Hot And Cold Sex

And finally we have a senior who goes to the doctor.

After his exam the doctor asked the elderly man: “You appear to be in good health.  Do you have any medical concerns you would like to ask me about?”

“In fact, I do,” said the old man. “After I have sex with my wife, I am usually cold and chilly, and then, after I have sex with her the second time, I am usually hot and sweaty.”

Later, after examining the man’s elderly wife, the doctor said: “Everything appears to be fine. Do you have any medical concerns that you would like to discuss with me?”

She replied that she had no questions or concerns.

The doctor then said to her: “Your husband had an unusual concern. He claims that he is usually cold and chilly after having sex with you the first time, and then hot and sweaty after the second time. Do you know why?”

“Oh that crazy old fart,” she replied. “That’s because the first time is usually in January and the second time is in August.”

And so ends another Friday Funnies. Don’t forget you can get more sports jokes at my sports site. Also you can find some great bargains at my brand new Top Shopping store.

Creating An Online Shopping Store


For me creating an online shopping store is part of my making money online plan. I’ve tried for some time now using Amazon and promoting some products as an affiliate but that hasn’t worked out all that well. While I have made some money on Amazon their commission rates are pretty pitiful to say the least. As for promoting products as an affiliate, well keeping track and the constant updating of affiliate links is, as I’m sure you will all agree, pretty damn tiresome.

That’s why I’ve decided to give AliExpress a go! Like eBay, these guys have a huge range of products and most of them are at discounted prices. Truthfully I’ve never heard of AliExpress before. They only came to my attention when I came along the Xpress Stores Pro plugin.

OK, before going any further you need to join the AliExpress Portal as an affiliate before you even consider creating an online shopping store. Once you’ve done that you can buy your Xpress Stores Pro plugin. At the moment it’s selling for a very low $47 but they say that price is limited. It comes with a 30 day money back guarantee but the truth is you can’t judge this type of plugin in only 30 days. Why? Because generally it will take you way longer than that to direct traffic after creating an online shopping store.

I’m hoping to cut that time back by attaching my online stores to existing sites. So far I’ve created 4 online stores!

Creating An Online Shopping Store x 4

Created with the aid of the Logo Creator.

So far I have created 4 online shopping stores using the Xpress Stores Pro plugin.

The Wassup Top Shopping store went live today and it’s already got 630 products on its shelves  :smile:

Creating You AliExpress Online Shopping Store

I was so impressed with the Xpress Stores Pro plugin that I just had to make a video to show you how easy it is to have your very own online shopping store.

Custom thumbnails created with the Logo Creator.

You’ll notice when checking Wassup Top Shopping that I’m displaying 24 products per page. I do this so that my store is the same height as my sidebar. You’ll also notice the categories in the sidebar. What you may not notice first off is that all my stores run on the FlexSqueeze2 theme. This is even though the plugin creators recommended getting a so called ‘shopping’ theme. FlexSqueeze2 is so versatile that it beats any of those shopping themes hands down! The video shows just how versatile the theme is.

I know there will be a lot of you reading this who will not buy the Xpress Stores Pro plugin and that is a shame. I’ve always said the main reason so many people fail to run a successful online business is because they don’t invest any money in it. Perhaps it’s because they’ve never heard the saying “You have to spend money to make money“.

Your online business is like any business and if your serious you need to invest some money in it. The beauty about having an online business is that it’s so much cheaper than your average bricks and mortar business, My firs business cost me $80 thousand. My second cost over $600 thousand.

Last year, what with hosting, advertising and equipment purchases (plugins, software, etc) I spent over $2000 but I made over $5000 a profit of $3000. I know it doesn’t sound like much but that’s still 150% increase on my investment. It’s taken awhile to get there but I’m on the right track and I know that I will increase my profit as time goes on. I’m hoping that the small investment of $47 on the Xpress Stores Pro plugin will increase my profits.

The question is how much are you willing to invest on your online business.
