Hi everyone

I made a dropshipping jewelry store on shopify and I want to buy a shoutout in this niche
The purpose of this is driving some traffic to my store so I can get some sales or at least test my store design and products
I want to target USA and Canada
What should I do ?

Before you make a purchase make sure to vaildate that the account has real followers.
Check their growth stats at:

Find influencers and pay them for a 24hr post,
Or if you are strapped for cash, find micro-inflencers 5000-10000 followers and offer a commission for putting link in their bio.... Use a app from shopify to set up all up....

Did you have any luck finding commission based influencers? most of them don't accept

Unless updated recently, Social blade doesnt work anymore.


To find inlfuencers youre just going to need to go through IG and search via hashtags that your niche is in. Then contact legit ppl. Check comments, check likes, check followers. if something feels fake DONT BUY. Normally accounts now have fake audiences, so Id suggest going to IG ads through FB ads manager to ensure youre broadcasting to real people. You can also use sites such as ninja outreach to find ppl to shoutout your stuff.

''so Id suggest going to IG ads through FB ads manager to ensure youre broadcasting to real people.'' What you mean by that, how it's done?

Open up a facebook ads manager account, and run ads through instagram. Thats the best way to run ads IMO. Since influencers tend to be fake nowadays as they catch onto the "influencer-getting-paid" trend.

That's a perfect idea that I might try

I have also a dropshipping jewelry store almost ready to launch.
But I have many doubts though for the whole project.
I mean who the hell is going to purchase jewelry from a store that nobody knows?
Meanwhile they can buy safely from a well known brand like Tiffany & Co.

As for your question I recommend to find real people.
DM them and tell them your offer ;)

This is where the store itself needs to stand out, along with the gate. Think of it like this. Youre traveling to an unknown part of the country and you see a busted up sign that looks ages old and maintained. You then continue to the estate you will be staying at. This estate is also worn and busted up. Would you trust the estate? Probably not. Our ads(the sign) and our stores(the estate) are the unknown part of the country to most people, so we need to present them as proper and well maintained. In other words make sure everything looks above amazing and people will trust it, especially the sign or "gate" of your store(the ad).

People will always trust the known brands no matter how good/well presented your site is.
I mean the majority. The thing is how can you convince the majority to buy jewels from you?
I haven't figured that out and that's the reason I haven't launched the jewelry store yet.
