    Hello, everyone talks about paid advertisement methods, but what free ways to promote a new shopify store do you recommend me? I have my brother with free time and he can help me with this. Many thanks!

    I think that you can reach many people with social media. Find some friends and ask them if they can share your site on their wall, that would bring many new people to your page. Also, make an instagram account and share pictures of the thing you sell, and the last thing you need to do is to start following people, and be followed :))). Also you can share you page on some buy and sell sites in your country. I hope i helped you, share the results :)

    if you are serious about making money you have to spend money, I've been making good money with shopify but most of my sells come from paid ads, if you are clever you can maximise your ads this week so far I used $15USD in ads and earned £1400 GBP as I'm in the UK from the $15 USD ad I still have $3USD left so I should still make some more money as my product is selling for £100 and is not even a phisical product that needs shiping so all I'm getting apart from the money spent in ads is all profit. if you want spend your time trying very hard to send people to your shop you will have to promote like crazy and maybe be frustrated or you can spend a bit of money and get tens of Thousands of targeted costumers who will buy your product. for me to make 14 £100 sales total £1400 my ad targeted over 10000 people it's small conversion compared to the amount of people targeted but hey I have £1400 or more every week since november :)

    I have the same question for you. First off congratulations to you and Animatronico1 success. I just open my Shopify store 2 weeks ago and I've made $540 bucks so far. I didn't have a big marketing budget so I focused on IG, tumblr, pintrest, and twitter. Can you please tell me what ad services your using? google...

    This is the stupidest post ever. You don't need to spend money whatsoever OP.
    Use your imagination on how to market your shopify. I'll give you a couple of ideas.

    Create a Facebook Profile, choose whether to create a Man or Woman depending on your niche. Most niches will need woman, they're are some that work better with men.

    Phone Verify your Facebook account. Create a Twitter, Tumblr, Bitly, Pinterest and phone verify these as well.

    Sign up to IFTTT[dot]com. (Research recipes on how to automate your Social Media profiles).

    Find 2 Instagram profiles in your niche that posts beautiful, creative and attention grabbing pictures. Download 4k stogram. Mass download the 2 Instagram profiles's photos, filter the results as some may not be suitable for other networks.

    Register to Hootsuite. Schedule EVERY photo, some with captions, some with no caption, some with a link to your Shopify. Mix in somewhere a picture of your Shopify stock and post a link with that image in Hootsuite. Post 10-20 times per day.

    Find 10 Facebook accounts within the Facebook Groups niche that you chose. You should be able to tell which accounts are an IM'ers. If not just pick a pretty, vein but attractive girl/woman/18+. Once you have the 10 add 5 of their girlfriends, from each profile, must be mutal friends otherwise it will flag on Facebook's systems.

    When Hootsuite posts one of your images at random times Share this image to 5 of the Facebook Groups you have chosen. Never the same 5, you should have as many Niche relative Groups as possible. With my niche I have anywhere from 50-300 different groups ranging from 500 members to 30,0000. Don't walk away from your computer. Follow the post and every so often like 30 of the comments and add 15 of the comment profiles that you just liked. Go to the likes of the post and Scroll down a quarter of the way. Start at this point and add 2 profiles, scroll down add 2 more. Stop when you have added around 20.

    Interaction with your 'Friends' is key here. Do it manually, don't use a bot. Spend as much time responding and laughing with your 'friends'. These ''friends' will eventually be YOUR 'customers' and your promotional staff.

    Now create a wordpress/google form/ anywhere that allows a response after they input their email. Create a nice looking answer form:

    Now add an incentive to your members. You're already making a profit on the shipping costs, they may buy something else. GREAT, but it's not good enough. Create incentive with a message to your 'friends'/'fans'/followers'/'customers':

    Now, obviously there will be no "verify robot". Make it so that if you are selling $20 or more of goods YOU will make a profit regardless of no shipping.
    When they submit the form, your 'verify bot' will just give the PROMO CODE no matter what.

    Now most people when it comes to beauty are vein as ****. F or S can be inserted, doesn't matter. So they will be happy to do this for more freebies. They've just got a $0.5 chain and were willing to pay $8 for shipping ($7.50 profit for you. YAY) - method is clearly in the madness. Shoppers also hear the word FREE and become gullible as sh**e.

    Personally anybody who purchases and is providing my family with food and nice things is a 'friend' to me. Why treat them like dirt after they have bought once? Once they purchase once we want a customer for life, you've earnt their trust now. Once your 'promotional campaign' is over delete the form and start again with a different product or a different offer. Think test products being given, you've overstocked and need to get rid for the next seasons trends.

    Now with this you have gained a customer, $20+ sale (with a profit if you do it correct) and the girlies will have done your promotion work, FREE OF CHARGE, without you have to pay a penny. When infact they could have got the promo for free because you're doing nothing special with your form.
    Not only that you will be building your own niche specific email list at the same time, just in case they make it to the website and change their minds.
    They've still tagged their friends, shared your post and done some of your promotional work with a practical share.

    Now if you wish to pay, search for Instagram shoutouts/ fiverr campaigns within your niche. Get them to shoutout your promotional code and make the code end in 24 hours with them still having to share something and add their email address. If they don't purchase, it's okay you have their email you can blast a sales email later.

    Create a Facebook page as well as your profile (start from the bottom or buy likes, socil media shares etc for exposure), hook HootSuite up, find 2 more niche specific Instagram pages, scrape and queue your Facebook page up. Interchange between both your page and profile as to which posts you share in Facebook groups.

    Within 3/4 days you should be getting 100/200 likes on each photo without the groups help. Invite your Facebook profile friends to like the page everyday, painstaking, I know, but worth it. Don't nuke your account by getting giddy or using a bot. If you provide the 'girlies' with the correct attention they need then they'll be putty in your hands. Always make sure to continue posting in the groups. Eventually, people will do it for you, you will see them down the timeline, same principle like the comments and people who like the photo. You never know if you're missed a potential customer. That one customer could be a $100+ client alone.

    This isn't perfect, I'm not saying it will work for most niches because I'm not sure. I wanted to give you and idea without using Facebook Ads and wasting your money away on failed campaign and failed campaign.

    People on this forum will tell you that things won't work. Why?
    Because at the end of the day with this Shopify method YOU'RE their COMPETITION.

    I hope I have given somebody some new ideas without wasting their money away.
    I don't need to provide proofs, I don't care if you believe me or not. That's up to you.

    You could pay for domains, hosting anything with this. Wrap into a beauty/gossip style girlie magazine. The limits are endless. Don't sit around copying the competition because they're already enhancing their copied ideas for the next big payday.

    Cya.


    LAST NOTE:

    Just remember this is a forum of Blackhatters. What do Blackhatters do best? LIE. Don't believe every post in this forum. If you're new to the game, don't let the people who have thousands of posts bully you, put you down or put you off of your dreams.

    You do what is right for you, your family and your life. Just because Joe Bloggs with 4,768 posts says he's spending $50,000 on FB, Twitter and Instagram Ads a month and earning 7 figure digits. There is one word for this type of person, IDIOT. If Joe Bloggs didn't spend as much time posting on this forum and "taking notes" from other liars then those 7 figure digits would be 9 figure digits. There is no rest for an IM'er. Anybody who says otherwise is a Blackhatter, sorry liar.

    Don't let these big bullies try and make you spend your hard-earned money in the Marketplace, most of them sell rubbish outsourced garbage. You will find the odd user who is working his butt off to achieve his goal of sitting on a beach. But they aren't doing that if they're spending their days trawling through a forum.
