    Update #4

    Yesterday I had some problems to solve at work so I couldn't expend as much time as I would like to. But I found the name of the shop, which includes my keyword with Low competition and 100k-1M searches/month. (Google Keyword Planner)

    My knowledge on keywords is near to zero haha, but I think it's good. The name of the domain will be KEYWORDmarket.com . For SEO I think is pretty good.

    Today I have a busy day as well, probably the whole week, but I will try my best to start the Shopify store, create some accounts and set all the others with good settings. By now they are F/UF around 100-200 actions. So pretty safe, just in case, I will up that to 600 this week, if everything goes right.

    AND THANK YOU ALL FOR THE LUCK :)

    100k researches is pretty high, how much is the competition score?

    I don't really know how to look for that. In the google Planner they just show me "Low Competition".

    If there's an easy tool to look that (and free, because I don't use it haha) I can look that for you :)

    EDIT: Ok, at kwfinder it's says: 459,000 searches and 57 difficulty. Hope that works for you. And if you can tell me if that's a good score, I will appreciate that
    EDIT2: Apparently over 50 it's not that easy. Maybe in Google Planner the Low competition is just for ads, and no for organic search.

    Yes in google its for ads, 57 its pretty difficult. You should also check PA/DA (Page authority and domain authority) of your competitors, you can do that on kwfinder.

    Update #5

    I have been busy on my "real" job, so I just could work at night on stuff. I almost have the shop build, a few aspects more and the products and we are good to go!

    I create all de main social media. For the moment: facebook page, instagram, twitter, tumblr, youtube and pinterest.
    I will add a few more when I have more time, but the main ones are there. I got some of them on Jarvee but I took them out after some problems, so I will keep the mothers out of the bot and I will create slaves (just instagram) to improve the main account.

    For the moment I just want growth on FB and IG, because are the ones I know best and seems more relevant to me. Twitter and Pinterest are a Maybe, because probably I should grow them, but the other ones are just for getting good links and movement. (I'm learning about IFTTT).

    Problem: I created a Professional FB account. I mean it's me, but I just have clients, etc as friends. When I sync the Instagram account with the FB page, FB closed my account, and I had to send a picture of me, so for the moment I don't have an account. If today is not solved I will use my personal account and that's all.

    Question: Can I have to different Ads accounts on the same FB profile? Because for this project it's a separate company and I will run Ads paid on a different bank account, etc.

    I think this weekend I will be able to have everything running.

    Update #6

    Oh God... The hangover this weekend was horrible, I'm too old to party. Didn't get much done this weekend, but I have almost all the shop done. Probably I added more products than necessary, but I want it to look serious, I know with 2 or 3 products is enough to start, but well... my fault!

    Finally I used my personal account for running FB ads, I think the professional one is lost, no problem :).

    Not much more to update and probably this week I'm not going to be able to work as much as I want. I have a lot of travel because of work, but I hope I can get some sales this week!

    I will let you know.

    Graaaaacias!

    Update #7

    I dropped Cam stuff, so right now I'm mainly focused on Dropshipping. The store is all done, products in. All social media created.
    Monthly expenses have been reduced because the dropping of the Cam thing. No need for BH proxies and the Jarvee license is for now at 10 accounts. Today

    Monthly Expenses: 136€

    Today I created the Slaves for the Mother IG account. 5 slaves in total, I will warm up them progressively.

    This week I was focused on finding influencers on IG for shout outs. I contacted a dozen of them, just one answered a too expensive for the quality of the account. So I will try with accounts with less followers and better engagement.

    And I'm also learning about FB ads, my knowledge there was zero. And I hope I can run an Ad today.

    I'm expecting the first sale this week :)

    Merci, mate. Yep, the thread is basically to keep me motivated and ask for help when I need it haha.

    Little Update: The ad is set. For engagement. I don't expect any sales from this one :)

    Its nice to see somebody start a journey with zero IM experience, sharing al the trial and error, because a lot of other members in this community would make the same mistakes. You will help a lot of beginners not to make these however by pointing them out. goodluck, I hope things go the right way for you from now on.

    Are you still spending that n#much on a VPS? I spend around $5 a month for mine with i think a really small fee for setting up windows. Might be worth looking around.

    @IGJavier, very inspired by your posts. Seems like you have a lot of IM knowledge (given how you know about tools, services, and hiring -- very important in this industry) and like me, have imposter syndrome about things. Best of luck and keep posting.

    Thank you! Hope I can help or motivate someone, but right now the only difference between a newbie and an expert is time. Sometimes I feel like asking here for some problems, but then I put some effort, google the issue and it's always solved by other people.

    It's not a VPS, I have a Dedicated server and a Public Cloud Instance. They are more expensive than the VPS but it's what I need to work in a comfortable way. I hope that the difference of 20/30€ each month is not a big deal when I start to get some sales.

    Everything is there, people just have to read :)

    Update #8

    Heeeeey. I'm running right now 4 Facebook Ads for the same product. It should bring at least one sale between today and tomorrow, if not, that means the product is not the proper one.
    (Because I think I have everything else on point: Ad and website)

    So I hope my next Update is telling you: FIRST SALE! :D
