    Hey there folks, I just finished setting up everything for my drop-shipping website.
    The niche I`m in offers me a large variety of things I can sell, and people I can target.

    But these last few days, I`m just so scared of "advertising" my website, cause I don`t want to make any mistakes. I`m proud of what I`ve done, and I want this to be a respectable business, I want to keep working on it for a long time. So how do I make people visit it, and buy stuff without making it look scammy, or having to spam all over the internet?

    What are ways I can basically advertise this thing? I know Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, all that stuff, but this is my first time. What are some recommended methods?

    Thanks for the quick answer.

    Is that the only thing I should do? I`d like to get a list of alternatives, and even perhaps a how to go about my promoting.
    After saying that, I can see it`s a bit much to ask, but all the same. I am asking because I trust you guys, and I would never even have started any of my projects if it weren`t for for the members of this forum.

    I`ve failed countless times, and asked for someone to hold my hand in the past many times. No one ever did that, and with good reason. After all the work I put into this thing, I understand where you guys come from.

    What I`m asking now is kind of a back track for me, but I`m just so sceptical of doing things in certain ways, that I just wanted to hear from you guys, how do YOU promote your drop-shipping websites? Are there any threads by other users, with explanations as to how to do it?

    I`m sorry for asking so much, but I don`t really have anywhere else to turn to.

    Here are 2 ways you might consider: Classifiedsforfree and Craigslist! Both are free and provide wide coverage.

    One problem I have at the moment is, I don`t have any money to invest in this anymore.
    I won`t go into details of my life story, but I just can`t buy views, and ad space and all that good stuff.

    no. dont buy view. if you do not have money anymore after the site built, try share the shop links through reddit. But as for my exp, reddit do not make a good conversion but good for traffic. But it might works with some niche. Second, create social media account, follow/add friend as much as you can and promote the shop product there. Third, pin your product to pinterest. Pinterest is good to gain US, UK traffic and since most of conversion came from these 2 countries it maybe worth it to do so. Btw, try to gain some money and make google shopping campaign. This is the most effective way for me after all. Especially if I'm building new store. It maybe hard, need a lot of time to read and watch tutorial via youtube etc but stay strong. You need to sow before reap. The first step always the hardest.

    If you're going to dabble in PPC (which is good for drop shipping) you need to realize that until you KNOW what you're doing you will burn a lot of cash. PPC is great, but dog-eat-dog and if you aren't optimized you might just bleed money until you have to quit. Learn it well first, then start SMALL until you know your stuff. Adwords especially is highly competitive.

    Instagram, Reddit, Twitter, Pinterest, Thehunt, weheartit, tumblr, facebook groups, linkedin are all places you can use to get visitors to your website without spending anything.

    Guys holy damn. Seriously I just tried Reddit. I posted on a sub-reddit, saying I had received a free gift from my website.
    Already have 6 sales and $37. $

    28 of which are profit.

    I have ran into a small problem though, and will have to fix it, so I won`t be promoting my website until I`ve fixed it, but damn. I am in awe of what is happening right now.

    Thanks people, I will definitely start spreading this thing like fire everywhere soon. All doubts I had in my mind are erased.

    Thanks for the suggestions.

    Well done mate. You shouldn't stop promoting your site. Even there are no sale but visitor still count in site ranking and affect your ads rank in the future. I would suggest you buy and install "recently buy" plugin in your store to increase trust from the incoming traffic. Get the problem solved ad fast as possible. Every second is money. Cheers and good luck.

    That is great. Just yesterday you were wondering what to do. Now you have sales. It is just amazing what you can do if you take action and stop over thinking.
    After perfecting your reddit campaign you can try other source of traffic. You now have gain confidence. Good luck to you!
