    Hey guys I am growing two Instagram accounts to generate traffic for my drop shipping website
    I am using Instagress and Onlypult right now which is a little cheaper than mass planner with my current settings, but I am thinking about switching to mass planner and taking advantage of the other social media automation options.

    My questions/variables are:

    • What platform is great for generating traffic/growing a following for dropshipping store (along with insta)?
    • I dont have a lot of money (pizza delivery in highschool)
    • I am setting up wordpress/alidropship website
    • I have a site launch landing page already
    • I have two instagram accounts growing (one is at 350 followers other is 950 followers)
    • I am newbie to dropshipping / setting up website
    Generally looking for advice on how to get a good amount of followers/traffic for when I launch my store
    (I want to launch in the summer, but that might be to soon?) (if I have atleast 50k following + good email list)

    Expenses so far
    • Instagress 30 days x2accounts for $20
    • onlypult 1month $12
    • Domain change because I fked up in beginning $20
    • website for 1 year $77
    • Alidropship plugin (dont have it yet but its like $80 or something)
    Also any good guides on how to make a wordpress + mailchimp + alidropship website because its kinda hard when you are a total newb to website stuff

    Is there anyone who has actually made money dropshipping willing to help a newb? I am looking to put in the work to succeed! I just have so many little questions lol

    Im assuming you just advertise your website in a niche related sub-reddit?
    My only concern is people get angry on Reddit if you straight out advertise? I guess it depends on the sub-reddit

    You have to interact with the account..... Treat it like a Girlfriend not a Side Chick

    Can you explain how you would advertise your niche on reddit lol
    Like lets say you have two IG accounts focused on water bottles (just an example not my niche) and a website your going to launch drop shipping water bottles
    I dont mean to be a pain just curious.
    I didnt really get the girlfriend analogy lol

    i meant you should try and have conversations with other users before dropping your links on them...... Run two totally separate reddit accounts ......build up your karma by being conversant with other water bottle enthusiasts then refer to the water bottle from account A then back up your post with account B saying how good and durable the water bottle is..... preferably run 5 or more accounts to make it much more legit

    Out of my experience the best converting social traffic is Pinterest by far.

    Make a good board and rank it for your kw on Big G. For the right keyword it's rather easy to get it on page 1 and your views will skyrocket.
