Abstract/Summary

Tiny homes on wheels are exploding in popularity all around the world. Television shows and YouTube channels dedicated to tiny homes have garnered cult followings. Many people view purchasing or constructing a tiny home as a viable option to gain freedom and escape the perceived trap of renting or home ownership. There seems to be a market for these homes, however, after research I found purchasing one can be extremely expensive. Therefore, I decided I would contact manufacturers in China and enter a partnership where I would attempt to sell their tiny homes for a profit. I created a website and Facebook and Instagram accounts around the tiny home, and finally, I ran ads for the website through social media. My profit margin would be twenty five percent, for a total of $7,500, not including ad spend. With 165 dollars in ad spend, I attracted 10,354 visitors to my website and nineteen subscribers to my newsletter.
