    Hello guys,

    I always wanted to try dropshipping and i started to a shopify website. I am in huge information overload syndrome maybe i can handle that with this journey if you follow and share your experiences about it.

    What i did in this one week:

    I tried to find and use a cool name for my store/website.
    I added 4 products that i think which looks good/cool. 2 sunglasses, 2 watches.
    I used facebook/instagram ads for each of this products. Spent 15 usd average each product. 0 sales.

    I showed products prices drop from 30 usd to 7 usd + shipping fee 4.99.

    Yesterday i mentioned my target group in my latest instagram post. 0 sales.

    What to do now :(

    About my journey - I want to reach daily 20 usd profit.

    You can't make money overnight my good friend.

    I'm no expert in dropshipping, however I would like to give my 2 cents.

    You should do some more testing, narrow down your niche, but most of all - keep at it.

    You will need a very large amount of traffic too, so keep that in mind. And the more you stick to it, there will be more visitors who are going to see your ad and take a look, when that happens, you have a higher chance for people to buy.

    Good luck!

    I think i paid a lot to my instagram and facebook ads, i used "website clicks" and "conversion dedicated" ad models. but didnt get enough clicks except 1 campaign.

    What do you guys think about my ads stats ?

    [​IMG]

    One campaign generate 35 clicks - 7 abondoned checkouts. Abondoned checkouts because of my target age group i think. i targeted 15-20 females.

    I am targeting USA.

    Ps. edit: I changed-edited my stats currency to usd.

    The products which are you chosen might be the problem since those are having huge competitions in market even though you have shown price drops which is basic psychological tricks many people use it has a default move to attract customer.
    If you have confident enough on the products then think of revise your fb ad strategy and targeted audience and if you are doing it manually then try to use any ready made softs which can do this for you.
    all the best mate following this thread.

    I am no expert, but I have been researching this a bit to see if this maybe something I want to do.

    What is your store's shipping policy? Are you telling people it will be a few weeks before they get their items AND they have to pay $5? For $5 I would expect a smallish item to be in my hands within a week. Or do you offer no sort of time frame and then your customers have no idea when to expect their order?

    Only pick items that you can dropshipp for free shipping + it is shipped e-packet. This is the fastest way to get an item to someone if it is coming from China. Most people in the US will have the item within 15 days IF the seller ships timely. I wouldn't promise 2 weeks though, just in case.
