    Hello to all. Im starting a thread about shopify stores and promoting them. I made a shopify store and failed miserably. I wouldnt call it a complete fail since in about 3 days ive got about 12 abandoned carts, which would of brought about 6k in revenue.

    The fail comes at the fact i never completed a sale. So Im going to reassess what im doing, that includes changing niches and products.

    I was getting 100 unique visitors a day from instagram alone.

    I have a few questions im hoping someone can shed light on, if im selling a product for $500 what should the conversion rate be for that item compared to a item that cost $40? I would assume the lower priced item should have a higher conversion rate, but not always the case if you have really targeted traffic.

    Also what other free ways can i promote my shopify store, I know all about instagram and that is my main source of traffic, but if i want more what other things can i do?

    Pinterest? How does pinterest even work? Ive made an account and went through it and i just dont understand the concept, i dont even know what it means to pin something, i also noticed you can make a business pinterest account, whats the difference with that?

    Im really curious about youtube, making videos and just promoting my videos instead of my store and just have the store in the description, but what about youtube commenting, I dont really hear about youtube commenting anymore like i used to. is it still effective? how would i go about starting youtube commenting?

    facebook is good, but my account always get banned they are just as bad as paypal and ebay with banning accounts IMO.

    Twitter i really havent experienced with, im not much of a twitter fan, i used it a little, it just doesnt seem like the best way to market i would rather just put more time and resources on instagram.

    Any thing else i forgot to mention please make a comment. Im just trying to figure out free ways or ways that have minimal expenses, obviosuly withyoutube commenting your going to need proxies and accounts so that isnt compkletely free but you get the idea. With youtube i not even concerned with getting top comment, i just want to kind of spam it so it is seen everywhere, but i dont really know hhow youtube comments works anymore so im not even sure if you can spam on youtube anymore, please shed some light.

    It just seems like instagram is so limited for the time being until i get more followers, i have about 23k followers and 450 likes a post in 12 hours, even though the strangest thing happened yesterday, my one post is at 977 likes and counting, which def broke my record. I dont know why, idk if it got featured or went viral or what but it got way more likes then usually.

    I posted a very similar picture in the car niche and it is only at 228 likes after 5 hours. its on past to be way below average as far as likes go.

    Anyways im getting off topic, just give me some insight, thank you.

    i guess the post with high like count got into top posts for some of your tags?

    have you tried keep.com? i think its setting is much like IG, and good for webstores.

    how do you get 100 visitors/day from IG? are they your followers?

    The thing about your product is, it was really popular about few months ago, now it slowed down, plus holidays are over so less people are buying.
    And to sell that product will require very targeted traffic.

    I have a friend using Pinterest and Instagram bots. getting around 200 followers a day and 300 if he goes aggressive although he sometimes gets the 24-hour ban on IG for this. Anyhow although boats cost money they seem to be effective once they are running. He then promote his store once a day but he also post normal images and shit so it doesn't look spammy :)

    Buy 10 to 20 fake accounts and try to comments on your main page with them. Like...

    You can still get conversions with just social media, that's what I did. But the truth is, you won't make any serious cash unless you buy ads. I've seen a %0.1 conversion rate from social. Meaning with a 30k account I get like 30 sales. If you are patient this will work for you. If you already have a large following this will work for you. If not, you're gonna have to get lucky, buy ads, or create a twist. No blowing smoke up your ass. You gotta pay to play.

    Always use that Picrure/Video for mentions which looks interesting related to your niche people want to tag their friends in that. So, it will look less spammy.

    You can use Followlike bot to manage your accounts.

    85% of carts will be abandoned. I would not get your hopes up.

    Is there a reason for it or is that just the nature usually when I add something to my cart on Amazon or eBay I buy it.
    Also 85% of what.

    If you have a high priced item, giveaway method won't work. If you are doing $100+ item you need to brand, and build trust. I was just in a mastermind with a guy who does fashion, he gets it sent to him then he prepackages with his own pakagong, paper, and includes free stickers. I'd you're trying to do sell $$$$ items they gotta be hq or at least pa kaged to believe that way. No no wants to buy a hover board and receive their package in Chinese writing and wait 30 days for it.

    85% of people will leave using the free shipping method that was mentioned last month. There are many reasons on why things like this will happen but don't really want to get into that here. got my own thread about it here for stuff like that.
