    Hi everyone,

    so this my first post on this forum, as I just finished setting up my shopify website. I am selling phone cases and I've opened my shop 5 days ago, with an Instagram account for it.
    Thanks to this forum, I learn how to automate most of my social media interaction (with massplanner) so I gained 449 followers in 5 days.

    I put my link in Instagram bio to get more conversion. Also, I tried running a facebook ads campaign (2$ per day) just to test the water. I have 0 followers on fb by the way.

    So... after all the effort I put in to set up my website/instagram, what's the next step to get my 1st sale ? And other ones ? I know facebook groups can help too, but... which fb group to target, selling phone cases (they are girly phone cases).

    Thanks !

    Target buy and sell (general) groups. Just don't spam.

    Some free methods that you can use is...

    Post some promotion posts on your FB page and then join a few groups in your niche and share those promotional posts in those groups.

    Some paid methods that you can use is...

    Scale up your ad testing, so that you have a higher possibility of finding a profitable ad. $2/day isn't much and you're going to have to invest a bit more to find results.

    Good luck.

    How about making an ads thru fb? You can also join different groups and promote your site to get traffic. I suggest you to offer discounts to some products which you think you can attract buyers and campaign it. Just try to sacrifice a little on your first products to get sales and drive traffic.

    Can I review your website because a good website is also a very big part of making sales or not.

    When it comes to joining groups, you are better off joining marketplace groups as you are allowed to post your stuff.

    hi,im new,i dont think some one will give you a 100% advice to get sales,because if some one have a method that making him sales he is keeping it for himself for not getting satured.
    That is my opinion i guess.
