    Hi. Firstly, I am Spanish, so I am going to use the google translator to be able to communicate. I am sorry
    For this.

    This is my first business on the Internet and in life in general.
    About 2 months ago, I started a store in shopify. That, until then, has achieved this:

    $350
    3000 visits


    I know it's nothing compared to other users of this forum, which I've seen earn up to $ 5K a day.
    Most of the sales were from instagram influencers and organic traffic.
    My conversion rate is very low, but these last weeks have risen to 1.75%, I still think it's bad.
    I've tried Facebook ads, but I've only got visits, not sales. There have not been any added products coming from
    of Facebook ads. Which seems strange to me, because I think I've done the ads as well as possible.

    OBJECTIVE FOR CHRISTMAS:

    My main goal for before Christmas, is to have sold $ 5K and have 10K-20K visits.
    I know it's a bit ambitious but I think I'll get it.

    I sell my product for approximately $ 25, and I buy it on aliexpress at $ 12- $ 15.

    What I'm going to do

    My plan is to contact people with large Instagram accounts, Facebook pages and blogs on my subject and
    offer them a percentage of the benefit, with which I would earn 25% of the benefit. It's not much, but if I attract
    a lot of traffic to my web, I will be creating future clients, followers in networks and better positioning. So, for each
    product that sells I will earn about $ 6.5.
    Every day I will contact about 25 on Instagram, 25 Facebook pages and 5-10 blogs.

    I hope this:
    2-5 responses on Instagram / day
    2-5 Facebook pages / day
    1 BLOG / day

    And if everything goes well, I hope to get traffic of 1K-2K / day and 600Probably I will not get it, but I do not lose the
    hope.

    I hope you enjoy the thread and help me on my way.

    I need help in:

    Increase the conversion rate and traffic of my website. Please

    My small 2cents : Join your niche relevant forums, engage with them slowly. I mean it. Don't go spamming all over the forums.
    Let them get interested so that they will want to learn more about you, there you place a link(in "Your website URL").
    It is not only about forums, think of other unusual places where they might hangout

    It can be done, just act quickly! People are already checking for stuff they will/might buy for christmas.

    And go big on videos. Short ones for social networks. Check your biggest competitors and other media companies in your niche because they done all the research for you. Just copy and improve what they are doing and collect them Euro's!

    Thanks for your quick response. I will try to implement it.

    I'm trying to try different ads, but since I'm a newbie I'm not having good results

    Great! I will apply it.

    UPDATE 1:

    Hello again! I have been doing some things but I have not obtained many results.

    I have started two campaigns of Interaction with the publication.

    I've tended some likes in the ads but no sales.

    Yesterday I made a sale but the client came from Instagram.

    UPDATE 2:

    Hello! Today I do not have very important news.

    As I wrote the other day, I contacted Instagram and Facebook influencers. On Facebook I have not gotten any response, but on instagram I have had many.
    Finally, I have reached a deal with 4 accounts:

    50K followers | 15,000 likes

    195K followers | 8,000 likes

    93.5K followers | 1,500 likes

    165K followers | 7,000 likes


    And I think I'll get a deal with 3 others.

    The good thing is that with this I will get:

    - Traffic.
    - Followers
    - Sales?
    - Subscribers
    - Better web positioning

    The bad:

    - (-15% of the benefit).

    Finally I will keep a percentage of the benefit of approximately 35%.

    With a publication in each account, I think I'll get:

    Traffic: 1.5K visitors
    Followers: 300 - 500 followers
    Sales:?


    It's already seven in the afternoon, and two of the accounts have already published an image of my product.

    And this has been the result so far:

    *
    Attached photo

    *


    On the other hand, Facebook has not yet given me any results. Only interactions
    I do not know if the right ad for my product is Interaction or pay per click.

    The ad that I have active is interaction in the publication and I have achieved:

    85 likes
    13 visits
    0 sales
    0 new followers

    I would really appreciate it, if someone reads this, to give me some advice about Facebook ads and how to get more traffic.

    PS: Keep in mind that Spain and Latin America (where I sell my products) is not the same as USA. USA is very advanced in the area of online shopping with respect to Spain and Latin America.

    So the conversion ratios are lower than in other more advanced countries.


    Greetings to all and I hope you help me achieve this goal. Thank you.

    UPDATE 3:

    Today I had more traffic than ever:

    310 visitors
    7 Add to Cart
    1 Reached Checkout
    0 Sales

    In the last 3 days:

    758 Visitors
    29 add to cart
    4 reached checkout
    0 sales

    I'm still not using any landing page, but I've got 50 emails from a shopify application.

    I figure, I'll get 3 sales from those 50 people.

    Tomorrow I will test a landing page or give a catalog of my products in exchange for the clients' email.

    All this with cost-per-click Facebook ads that I spent about $ 23.

    Tomorrow I hope to sell at least 1 product.

    I would appreciate any advice about facebook ads.

    A greeting.

    You are on the right track op. But I would advice that you pay more attention to building your own instagram account too. Instagram traffic converts well if you do it right.

    You could build a fan of 50k plus in less than 6 months. And imagine what you could achieve with that.

    Finally, I wish you goodluck

    I have an Instagram account with 2k followers, it is little for 3 months that I have, but it is difficult for me.
    Thanks for your answer.

    UPDATE 4:

    Today I FINALLY HAVE A SALE FROM FACEBOOK ADS.
    After $ 23 invested they bought me a product of $18 and I bought it for approximately $ 10. I have lost $13 but it is fine for my first days.

    I have an active pay per click ad. I am currently paying $ 0.03 per click.

    I still have a lot of traffic, but the conversion rate is still very low.

    I accept any advice about facebook ads or anything else.
    A greeting.

    I attach a photo of my results with facebook ads since I started.

    Hello please note it does depend on different niches but when you do any kind of Facebook advertising it's down to mostly trial and error for example say your landing page is blue at the moment you change it to red your sales go from 1 to 7 because you customers prefer the red colour. You can do many different things to improve the sales on your site. I would also recommend if you have not already done pick the right age group for your customers since say for example if your target customer base is men and women aged 18 to 25 and you are currently targeting age 30 to 40 then you are losing out on sales.
