    Hey guys,

    i m currently in a phase of my business where i m almost at a stage to drop everything.

    My paid plan in Shopify isn't even paid by my earnings (Toys & Make Up currently) and i think i have chosen a saturated category without any specific niche (Selling in Germany, Switzerland and Austria).

    I m thinking about to change the topic to animals and some niches there. How to i evaluate a good opportunity? Do you have a link, ebook or video which could help me out? Or even a specific answere where i have to start?

    Best regards and thanks in advance for any help
    Artur

    listen up man, although i don't do dropshipping, i know guys that do and bank from it

    you will lose money in dropshipping before making any because it takes time to find a good product. be it FB ads or instagram or reddit.

    i can give you some sources for dropshipping tho

    watch franklin hatchetts youtube channel AND join his FB group and follow his online dime website
    join ben malols FB group and you can watch his course here on BHW in the DL section
    ask @Lunaaa for a bit of help, dudes cool and experienced.
    follow @Yarosss dropshipping journey over here on bhw, open his account and go to info and click ' all threads ' and find his journey
    it's successful and he has his own dropshipping plugin. he has his own site and forum so i suggest you follow that as well
    if you haven't already create and build mass insta accounts, buy em off, or simply buy instagram shoutouts.

    that's all i can help you right now but what i just told you, do follow it.

    ask help in those FB groups especially franklins group

    well done, taking action and having a work ethic is the key to success in IM

    In franklins group, online samurais, he is selling a $197 course and making a closed group for those who buy and it's for a limited time.
    if you have the budget i really recommend buying it as franklin is definitiely not one of those fake gurus.

    if you don't that's fine too but, the one thing i have learned in IM is that you have to contact and ask people about advice. even in this forum, if you see someoen you think knows a thing or 2 about something. message them. it helps a lot.

    And don't be afraid to lose money, because you're not necessarily losing it. sure you're not getting money in return but you are getting KNOWLEDGE in return. now franklin once said in one of his videos, ' if you have money to waste on mcdonalds and burger king or to go to vacations, why not spend some money in business? '

    and tbh he is completely right on that part.

    anyways good luck and if you need any help i'd love to help you

    Haha the part with spending money into knowledge reminds me about my teacher in finances.
    "You never lose money in stock market trading, you are just lending it to somebody else and get knowledge in exchange"
    What a great dude.

    Alright, i m on fire :) Will report in some weeks

    Franklin Hatchet content is utter shit, most of his information is heavily outdated or he not giving you everything so you busy some of his hsitty programs.

    You really wanna learn something? Watch this course, it is 100% free and you will get everything you need without being sold too once, this link gives you access directly to the course but i would advice you to sign up for the email and FB group, he is not selling you anything, (well i haven't seen anything) this guy really believes in giving back and he does that as this course could sell really good for $199- and like me he hates gurus. (thats a big +)

    [disclaimer] i am not in any way, shape or form affiliated with this program, i am a just a happy user of the information given to me and i believe it will help a lot of n00bs going into FB ads and ecommerce

    Goodluck

    i made my first $$ from franklins group. he really does give value, idk what's with that hate of yours for him??
    obviously he doesn't reveal each and everything but he is better than most of those ' gurus ' and you dismissing him like a shit is actaully inaccurate. i spend large amount of my time seeing different ' gurus ' and i think he is better than many of the people. and i'm sure many people agree with me if they know franklin or have done their reserach. maybe you haven't had another look at his vids?
    i do agree that in some of his vids he dones't disclose everything but that's for a specifc purpose.
    i know that i have learned a few things here and there from franklin. and i am dead sure he has value in his info

    wtf niga ' tiny little feelings ' ain't no franklin my senpai

    but jokes aside man, i'm not trying to converse with you in a challenging way.

    i mean, seriously, what i did take an offense on was how you said ' utter shit ' to franklins content, and later link a site that doens't even have a fucking member signup.

    franklin does give value and, suddenly dismissing that someone saying their content is ' utter shit ' shows how you haven't read shit about franklins content and just being a dumbfuck giving out false information to new people. i don't give a shit about you but i do give a shit about OP.

    perhaps you find it uttershit beacuse you're not new to this all. OP won't and franklins content is good for newbies. it was for me when i started out.

    even then, it's not franklin, it's anyone honestly, if someone is giving out value, dismissing that as ' utter shit ', really just proves that it's not that persons content that is uttershit, but your way of thinking which is ' utter shit '.

    Did you test multiple products?

    It takes quite a while to find a winner IMO.

    actually yes i am butthurt. but have no grudge or hate for you. you seem like a chill and cool dude.

    but i am ' butthurt ' ( nice words you use for defense after making a fool of yourself ) on what you wrote. you're not only confusing a newbie whilst also giving links which don't even have a member signup, but also you're pissing on someone who actually gives value to people. have you ever given value to people like franklin does? you haven't even watched his videos or guides i'm sure of that. have you ever even tried ecom? have you ever entered franklins group and seen what he does and the friendly and helpful environment there? no you haven't.
    you prolly watched his old vids or some of his vids that are meant for beginners and then decided to be a dumbfuck and piss on him.

    again, i'm not holding any hate towards you. i'm chill on that, hate is just a human defense mechanism to avoid pain.
    but i am pointing out on your shit action so that you realize that you are WRONG. and don't go on littering someone else's thread with things you have no clue about and linking to pages that have a broken sign up page.

    aside from that man, again, no hate to you. that's a childish act. and you seem like a cool dude yourself and it's just that, cool and chill people like you shouldn't be commting shit like you just did.

    Been doing DS for a while now, invested a few thousands in ADS, finally got some things to work.
    I'll give you some great tips I wish someone could give me when I started out -

    1. Trust facebooks pixel, let your ads run and dont close em too soon
    2. Theres no 1 method to success
    3. Choose a system and stick with it[in terms of niche research, which ads to run etc]. most shopify courses provide different strategies and you cant follow them all. choose 1 mentor, stick with his system, and stick with it.
    4.Set a budget of at least $30/day for fb ads, less than that imo its not worth it. ( u can do less but itll take too long to win and imo most ppl will quit)
    5. Commit to doing shopify for a min 6 month before you quit. Tweak and optimize. decide that no matter if u win or fail, you're going to do Dropshipping for the next 6 months, if you fail after 6 months you're allowed to drop it.

    hope that helps
    cheers

    Alright, i think i have to pump some more money into ads to see how they go.
    The Problem is, i don't even know if the Dropshipping thing works in Germany.
    Is there any way to google dork some Shopify Shops who Dropship?
    inurl://myshopify.com kontakt is only showing some Shopify Stores with selfmade stuff.

    If you are going to use aliexpress as source you have to make damn sure you tell the your buyers that they have to wait 3 to 6 weeks before they have their stuff or you'll be bathing in disputes and chargebacks

    there are a few plugins which do this. one is shopify inspector and one is aliexpress inspector
    both tools inspect different stores. the latter takes out the products that are being sold the most in a certain category.

    search up on google for these and find the cracked version. or check out the bhw download section i think someone posted those in there aswell
