    Hey Guys.

    First, let me say how thankful I am for this forum and this community. I've learned an incredible amount since stumbling upon this place and have found ridiculously valuable resources and tools since joining. I am so thankful that this forum exists and for all those who provide value to it.

    I first looked into drop shipping last year and found it incredibly appealing. However, my marketing knowledge was extremely limited back then so I never executed.

    But now, things have changed. I was able to grow my personal Instagram account to 7k in about 2 months, so I'm confident to do the same with a store.

    My plan is to use automation in combination with ads and shoutouts. I'm planning on allocating about $20/day to Instagram ads to start and going from there.

    I'm moving to California in about 3 months. My goal is to hit $100 a day before then, and I decided I would take you all along on my journey. I plan to update regularly and would love some input from those experienced with what I'm attempting, as I am very new to this.

    My Niche is Clothing. I know, I know, it's oversaturated. But they say to stick to what you know and love to make money, and I've always loved clothing and style. So I'm going to give it a shot.

    What I've Accomplished so Far:
    • Assembled my first set of products for my Shopify store (a total of 60 products)
    • Set up an Oberlo Account
    What I Still Need to Accomplish:
    • Create and finish the Shopify store
    • Create an email funnel - No experience, would love some advice
    • Get custom labels made to go out on my packaging - No experience, would love some advice
    • Launch His and Hers Instagram Accounts and build each to 500 followers (double the exposure)
    • Once achieved, begin ad campaign. Allocate $10 to each account.
    • Split A/B testing with ads. Keep winners, ditch failures.
    • Start reaching out to influencers at about 1K followers
    • Update Store according to what is popular and not popular
    • Rinse and Repeat
    Obviously, I have barely gotten started. However, I decided it would be better to start this thread from the very beginning, so that we can all learn from it together. If I missed anything you think is important, please let me know!

    Hopefully I'm able to make some money and provide you with some valuable insight and knowledge.

    Lets go. :cool:
     
    • Thanks Thanks x 2

    500 followers is likely to be worthless

    Agreed, but the method is very highly targeted and I have to start somewhere after all. It will only take me a couple of days to build up 500 followers, it's just a launch point.

    edit* took what you said into consideration, looking to buy a mens fashion account with around 20k followers and a women fashion a count with about 10k and converting them. Will update with results later today.

    Hey guys, promise I'm not dead just changing direction with things. Will update once the store is up and running and let you know my process.
