This is first video of a series of videos I am gonna make on spying successful shopify stores and get some great product ideas to make some dollars via dropshipping.

This first video is about a store which promotes via video views, no links in the video post. I reverse engineered the ad strategy and present my analysis in this short video.


Fire away your questions.

So, promote video and post your landing page in comments.

If you monitor a successful store, and you know when they bring out a new product, you save the hard work on product research. In dropshipping successful product research is the key ingredient, it can determine the success or failure of your store.

Most people think that mastering fb ads is the main reason of shopify success, but according to me that's a myth. If you chose a bad product, which no one wants to buy, ads can only do much. The main thing behind a successful dropshipping business is good product research.

Yeah, the old comments trick. This can easily be automated/optimized as well using a chatbot. For instance, any user that comments will automatically receive a message in their inbox with your store's url (another way to get insanely cheap conversions). I know firsthand as I've built the tool for my platform and tested it with multiple boosted posts and was paying around $0.001 per engagement.

Pretty crazy stuff.

This is a solid share, Sumit.

Those that spend a few moments watching can increase their revenue without a ton of work based on that.

Please can u suggest any bot for this function. I want to buy premium membership in ManyChat but I'm not sure if it's the best!.

+ When someone comment, he'll receive the message in the request messages or in inbox?

+ This method can ban the page?

-Message will be in his inbox directly, not message requests.

-This is 100% within Facebook's Terms of Service.

Also, don't go with Manychat. It's WAY too expensive, same with Chatfuel. For 1 million subscribers, you're going to be paying ~$26,000/month. If you want something that does everything that Manychat and Chatfuel do plus MUCH more, click the banner on my previous post to check it out. :)

There are automation tools which can post that message automated on a comment. Might have to try a couple to check which works the best.

Yes manychat and Chatfuel look way too expensive for such viral traffic, I think if your videos get 100M views over few months you can easily get 1M subscribers from them. This can become a big cashcow.

100% agree on this. Nice share btw, this is a battle tested method to funnel traffic into sales for CHEAP.

Nope. It uses Facebook's official api - and by commenting, users are consenting to receive follow up messages via messenger :)

The cool part is that you can also subscribe these users to your Messenger bot and later remarket to them via notifications at any time.

Not sure about this .... if you choose video views objective instead of PPE, it is really that much cheaper? but you choose same audience targeting, only change objective?
