    Brilliant work so far.

    I have been on and off Shopify dropshipping with Aliexpress for the last year and a half.

    The more different types of ads I put in front of people who were deemed interested in my ad (clicked on it, watched 75% of video etc) really made the difference in creating good solid profit.

    I think its the case now that you have to buy data before getting any form of return.

    I know very few that can make a profit from the get go, unless ofc you have an audience/following in place.

    Good luck, brother!
    by the way, do you have any problem with the long shipping? mine got killed because of this, lots of customers requested refund—how about yours? mind to share?

    today wasn't so good, spent $60 and sold 1 unit at $14.97

    i'm basically break even right now. spent a little over $300 in ads. i have a countdown timer on my product page, similar to hurrify. i turned it off cause i'm wondering if that is making me seem scammy. also turned off this live fake visitor count on my product page. will analyze next 2 days and see what happens

    i wasted too much time dicking around with shopify apps. i tried to get zipify OCU to work but i realized the shit is way too complicated and basically cant integrate with paypal express unless i let paypal do a hard pull on my credit, and they may not even approve me for the integration. and over half of my orders are from paypal express.

    people love the express, just one click to open paypal and another click to confirm their payment since their info is already loaded up. so yeah, can't really maximize upsells with zipify so i'm gonna ask for a refund on it. i'm looking into other upsell apps. but honestly, i shouldn't be dicking around with these apps. i spent time trying to get aftership set up which was a pain in the ass. and replaced ali reviews with loox reviews because i feel that it looks cleaner and now i can offer discounts for photo reviews. also installed a currency converter.

    really need to make some sales. my flex targeting of my successful audiences has not be working to well. i think i still need more data. i've only spent $300 in total ad costs. when i watched gabriel st-germain's case study he spent a little over $1k the first week on ads and was LOSING money. my pixel is still learning and seasoning up so hopefully conversion rate gets better

    i feel like a jack ass spending time messing around with zipify OCU when i make like 1-3 fuckin orders per day. jesus, i don't even need upsell apps right now. i need to fuckin go back to the basics and improve my orders per day

    Good luck with your journey.

    I have 2 niche stores and I'm looking into opening one product store as soon as I get some free time.

    Will be following your journey.

    my cost per click is too high, don't know what happened

    i started lookalike audiences. idk what's going on. i feel like i should turn off all my adsets that don't have purchases. i have like 6 adsets with purchases i think. might as well run those and then move 100% into lookalike audiences now and then to retargeting once i start cracking a decent amount of visitors per day

    i killed all my adsets and launched 5 brand new ones

    the adsets that have got me purchases have stopped being effective. past 3 days it's been like 2 dollars CPC all day. spending $20 and getting like 8 website views or something like that. really really bad. still getting like 1 order per day but lately everyone has only been buying 1 unit each time. i don't know what happened.... that's why i killed it all and launched 5 fresh adsets. will just repeat what i did when i started. i'm down like $100 now, sucks. was profitable but now i'm not :(

    i'm trying to get enough view contents so i can run LLAs for this. the LLAs that i've tested have been 95% video views and top 25% time spent on website. CPM is HIGHHHH out the ass hole. like $80 and $100 cpm!!! fucking holy shit. turned those LLAs off fast. maybe it's cause i'm targeting the US, those costs are ridculious. i don't have enough data to target other countries that i've gotten purchases at. so i'm waiting until i have enough from interest targeting

    time to cycle through the interests.... wish i had some adsets that i can let sit for like a week straight and still be profitable. looks like the job is constantly testing around with facebook ads to stay profitable

    Do you advertise only on facebook or IG as well? For me, facebook is much more unstable than IG...

    I explained it all to you but you insisted you know better. I too have been profitable even 10 days straight and then, when I increased the budget, I didn't make one sale. I'm sorry to say this, but you will burn all your ads money. How do I know that? Because you make the same mistakes I did.

    And as of what you said earlier, it doesn't matter if the video you watched on youtube was uploaded months ago or even yesterday, THE INFO THEY TEACH YOU IN THAT VIDEO ARE OLD METHODS. No one teaches new methods because they would have competition. And who wants that?! :)

    I want you to succeed that's why I'm saying these things. Don't take it the bad way... I burned $1500 on ads doing exactly the same as you do, feeling super happy because I hit 1-2 days with big sales, then zero... But maybe I was unlucky. I hope you succeed.

    My advice is to find some good Instagram memes pages and negotiate to get your post there for 24 hours. Rather than burning $50 a day on FB ads, better you pay 100-200 bucks on 2-3 memes pages to get your post there. If you find good engagement pages, you'll make more sales than with ads.

    dude relax.

    you need to calm down. people make money using facebook ads. it's a huge platform. you're acting very dramatic. you gotta calm down with that

    annnnd bam. got a sale :)

    wow, looks like these LLAs are doing killer. i think i found my target market! for some reason all my USA LLAs really suck and the cpms are so high. i guess targeting USA is just too saturated on facebook?

    EDIT: as i was writing this i just popped another sale!

    it's amazing what LLA can do for you. in my experience USA customers only buy 1 product each. very cheap customers! but when targeting other countries each order always has 2,3, or 5 items.

    with these profits i just made i should be around break even right now. my budget has been at $25 per day for this LLA, gonna bump to $60 at midnight. then tomorrow by end of the day if i'm still profiting i'm gonna make 5 more LLA for this country but now 5-10% range. going to put it in a separate CBO. then will run 10 of those LLAs and see if i can profit more $$$

    have another country in mind that i want to run LLAs too as well. once i get enough content views i will build LLAs for that as well

    let the mass scaling with LLAs begin

    Nice! Get those sales!

    Is this shop a Aliexpress Dropshipping store or different Dropshipping?

    Why do you think you failed?

    Look alike audience and campaign budget optimization. Could've googled that but why not increase post count while you're at it, good call.
