    Hello Friends,

    Welcome to my new dropshipping journey and the goal is to reach $1,000/month as profit before Dec'19 & flip the site for $xx,xxx. I've tried it in the past and failed miserably due to my laziness, lack of funds. This time, I've a plan which has been drawn in my whiteboard and still the barrier will be funds. No issues.

    What's the plan?

    After doing some research, I've decided to go into the traditional way of dropshipping from AliExpress ;). The platform will be shopify. But, as the title says I need to minimize my investment. I've tried with Woocommerce and my site was not looking appeal even to me.

    What I've done so far?

    - Registered a .com domain for my store ($4/Year)
    - Purchased an e-book Dropshipping With Instagram Shoutouts from @Ryan Oak - ($34.5)
    - Created a store under my Shopify partner account ($0)
    - Created a logo for my store ($0)
    - Download Booster theme from BHW and installed on my store ($0)
    - Created Social Pages for my store (FB Page, Instagram, Twitter, Pinterest) - ($0)
    - Installed Oberlo app and started importing products from AliExpress - ($0)

    What's the plan?

    - Create the relevant pages, update all policies in store
    - Import more products and reviews to make the store more legit
    - Build a network of affiliates to promote my store
    - Start to buy shout outs with minimum investment
    - Reach $1,000/Month profit before end of this year.

    I do have my day job which consume my time and especially during month ends. I'm planning to make live my store before June 15, 2019 as I've still lot of work to be done. I'll update this journey thread whenever I've time and not later than a week. This will help me to learn many things from this community. Once I start earn some decent amount, I've a plan to implement my own IG child/mother strategy to grow my account.

    Expenses & Income so far:

    Expenses: $38.5
    Income: $0
    Net Profit: -$38.5

    Your suggestions, comments, criticism welcomes....Also, English is not my first language. So, sorry for any grammatical mistakes. Hope, my writing is understandable.

    I have a question, how are you planning to get traffic to your website and how much it may cost you?

    Thank you for your wishes.

    Thank you for your wish. As of now, I've invested only in domain and e-book as stated. Moving forward, I'll invest some amount in IG Shoutouts for initial sales and need to pay for Shopify subscription! I'm planning to reinvest my profit to scale up this project.


    I'm planning to buy shoutouts in initial stage. I have my FB pixels installed in my store and will target LAA in FB once I have some decent audiences and returns from shoutouts.


    Thank you man! Sure, I'll get help from you if I get stuck...

    Where did you get .com domain for $4/year? And don't you pay for shopify?

    Yeah, currently I'm on free plan under Shopify partners. Until 50 orders, I don't need to pay for subscription.

    I got the domain from porkbun for $4 and I'm not paying for shopify subscription as it's a development store under partners.

    I thought you cannot get a custom made domain when you are under Shopify partners?
