    I've spent 2 years doing dropshipping and had some success in the past but never had any real profitable success. This year I started taking drop shipping seriously and looking to really take it to the next level. Right now, I created 2 stores, 2 different products and worked really hard to get the websites to look professional. Things are completely set up and now, just waiting for the SEO to set in.

    I've tried to make money online but always failed at it. Honestly, I never really had the heart for it. I feel drop shipping is going to be the perfect start for me and looking to really take things to the next level.

    I'm willing to do anything to be successful at this point.

    Sorry for the grammatical errors

    Update #1

    Have 8 expired domains to set up my PBN. Going to first focus my efforts to rank my branded keywords before I attack my desired keywords. Going to diversify the branded keywords. Decided to purchase a PBN setup service for the 8 domains and going to order 2-3 articles for each PBN.

    In regards to the SEO efforts, I'm climbing up in google for some keywords but not getting a lot of traffic to the websites.

    Are you using the PBN to push people to your website for sales?

    Kind of irrelevant to your thread, but what other online money making methods have you tried? You mentioned that you've failed at it so I am curious.

    Don't wait for SEO to rank your site. Could take forever or even never to rank. Try different ways to get traffic. Definitely look into social media

    Are you not advertising? Also Instagram is s a good place for marketing. Seo is great but it takes time to see results. Right now I would be spending a bit of money testing some Facebook ads.

    why not run facebook ads? make a one product store for a potential winning product, test 10 ad sets at 1 interest each $5 per day. if the product is good then you should make some sales after the first few days

    Don't go for SEO
    Only paid marketing is effective to get sufficient sales

    I was thinking about doing that but for the time being, I'm using them to push me up in the rankings.

    PPC - Pay Per Call
    Affiliate Marketing
    Facebook ads
    Pushing dating products

    Just the name of few..


    I'm seeing them my keywords increase by the day. By social media marketing, you mean influence shouts?

    Been there done that, burn through money like crazy. And super expensive.

    But, I've never done it for my current products yet. I may setaside 1k just for testing and see where I'm at.

    You may be right. Thanks

    I think you're main problem with IM in general is that you're too focused on the tools and not a specific business model. It's almost impossible to fail at advertising once you have a product/service that solves a painful problem and you know the basics like how to create an adset. But if you don't have a great product just going into "FB ads" cause a guru said it was a good idea will always end in disaster.
    Good luck, hopes this works.

    You what, you're right? No joke. I'm going to really think about what my products solve and solely focus on that. They're great products but like you said, I need to focus on what they solve and target that.

    Thanks a bunch man.

    Too many internet marketers skip right over this (I'm guilty too) - we assume if we have a nice website and send paid traffic to it, people will buy it.
    You have to find product-market fit and solve a real problem for a real, clearly defined group of people.

    Refocused. Budgeted $500 towards a 7 day paid traffic campaign towards one of the websites. Testing out 4 different audiences on Facebook. Did some research on the audience. Will be updating this thread with the results.

    Tweaked the website to be more mobile friendly. I need to be willing to take big risks and be willing to lose to win big.

    The best way to sell a product or service is to solve or at least decrease a problem someone is having, even if they’re currently not even aware of having that problem. Good to see you want to focus on that - try different propositions to draw your audience in and see what works best, using copy and maybe video if it’s on social media. Takes a bit of tweaking and some time before you get there but once you reach that point you’ll see that every dollar you invest in it will bring a positive ROI. Good luck!

    I’d change that to:
    Building a 2x2x2 ad set campaign with $5 per ad per day - 2 different images, 2 different types of copy, 2 different audiences

    Then go from there. It’s 6 ads for $30/day in total and will show what’ll work best. I work with companies that have $500-$5000 ad budget for FB per week yet we always start with a 2x2x2 campaign with $5/ad to track initial engagements and optimize from there before we throw more money at it.

    Initially, sales can be done only via marketing. SEO is a long journey. Don't wait, act now.

    I'd recommend traffic via Social Media.

    You mean seeking out social media influencers?

    I've been using Jarvee to gain traffic and posting content. Don't get anything from it.


    Implemented and done. Will post results in a couple of days.

    Agree. That's why I refocused things and focusing back on paid traffic.

    Be specific. Are you talking influencers here?

    Same response from the above.

    Nice! Also, realized I didn't use the right calculations in my previous answer -> 2x2x2 = 8 ads, with $40/day if you use $5/day/ad. It was a long Friday
