    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:

    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.

    I also want to know any update from thread owner. In the past, I also tried on Shopify with clothes niches, but it failed.
