    Hello all,
    At first Sorry for my English,
    I am reading drop shipping guides and tricks here and trying my best to archive some success results.
    I have tried several facebook ads around 10 to 30$ from 3 to 7days. But how ever Results were beyond worst that haven't sold anything.
    I have done realy nice images, found nice products that will sell even cloned some best selling fresh ads from other sellers, researched aliexpress found that russians are purchasing at most so done in Russian adds and landing pages, intagrated paypal, webmoney, paysera payment gateways but results still same.
    Low clicks, low likes no comments. People only reacting to big sellers, viral pages on facebook.
    Strange thing is instagram working and bringing highest traffic without any ads. I have account over 2600 followers. But I over 2k are bots,(which i paid)
    Yesterday i set an add on facebook about star wars action figures with big discount and nice image. Targated usa who liked starwars movie and rogue one movie between 21-35 for 30$ 7 days. After 12 hours i get only 4 likes at all.
    Just an hour ago i put same image on instagram and got 40 likes already. And better traffic from bio link.
    My theory is fb sellecting to whom display the ads. Keeping better buyers for bigger companies and giving shitty sellers shitty profiles. On instagram people are just more actively searching and finding nice images they liked.
    Now all comments will be about 2 things. How bad is my website or how bad are my adds thats why im not succeed. But i may get some good advises here.
    Thsnks for reading.

    1. There is a lot of Russians buying your item on aliexpres because a lot of Russians shop on Aliexpress not because they are interested in your product. Check any other product and you will find out the same. Advertise to richer more advanced countries than Russia and Russians mostly use Vk and not FB so....
    2. $30 spent is not a lot. Facebook ad didn't even optimize that's the second reason you don't get sales. (google or search on youtube how to set fb ad campaign)
    3. make more ads and target more different people because you obviously don't know yet what is your targeted audience.
    4. if you get attention and sales on IG then you are obviously doing something right so scale it up on ig or give another proper shot to fb ads.

    Yes, thank you.
    I have searched other threads. So fb adds needs lots of testing.
    Better way to go :
    First before spending money, posting to target groups and people to test your add. If people reacting good you can start an add. There is some formula about how much to spendi don't remember now. May be someone experienced can guide us here?
    May be it is better to pay some target groups to shout our post on fb group or page?
