    Hi. Recently I decided to take action and it worked. I also figured I would share my success . Investement was only $10 for a high karma reddit account and $1 for a .com. You can also buy one for $5 with less karma. The one I bought has 4.7k karma and 8 months old. It was $10 from fiverr

    So what I did was first i surfed aliexpress for cool products. I found a cool one that is less then $10
    I found mulitple sellers incase the main one stopped selling
    I also used the chrome extension called oberlo to show which products have epacket.
    epacket is essential because people dont want to wait a month to get their product. E packet is only 10-15 days and its only a few dollars. Epacket is only for small products that are i think shipping from hong kong. Not sure
    My product is in the 25-45 dollar range (i dont want you guys to know what my product is so i wont be specific)
    Then signed up at https://www.shopify.ca/free-trial
    Its a 14 day free trial and I created a store for my product. It only took a few hours
    I decided to invest in a domain name but you dont have to. (1$)
    Create your store and make sure it looks visibly appealing. People have to trust your site enough to pay you their hard earned money so the site has to look trustworth.
    So now your store is done.

    So allot of you know that reddit is built up like a fortress where you get downvoted if you self promote. But thats not entirely true. There are subreddits that are good for this. shutupandtakemymoney is a good one. Unfortuanly i got banned from it before i even got to post it (long story)

    But i posted on a different one

    heres a list of good subreddits

    shutupandtakemymoney and these simular ones
    /r/Kickstarter
    /r/Crowdfunding
    /r/Indiegogo
    /r/Deals
    /r/GameDeals
    /r/DealsReddit
    /r/Shirtoftheday
    /r/TheBestShirts
    /r/Freebies
    /r/Coupons
    /r/AnimeDeals
    these are just copy and pasted from shutupandtakemymoneys simular subreddit list.
    to find more subreddits like this, go to these subreddits above and look at the simular subreddits list,
    You can also probably use other subreddits that arent for deals or coupons. but you really need to make it seem as if its not actaully you.


    Now i just shared a link to it. Made a catchy title too!
    Also i said that i used a coupon code and said what it was

    Make sure to make it seem like its not your site. Also make sure to read the rules because it got me banned from shutupandtakemymoney subreddit because i did something against the rules

    So did my post get downvoted to hell?
    No. I only got 1 downvote.

    What results did i get?
    I posted in a subreddit with not that many people
    I got 50 clicks and 1 sale with $30 profit
    If you want to get more clicks and more sales you can buy upvotes. I have not done this but i am planning to. I saw some on seoclerk. Im worried to get my account banned but i did see one that is 8 upvotes which i believe are quality ones. There are also 100 for the same price but i feel as if those are low quality.

    also a very good thing to do is to have a high karma account and to only post the link only 1 per subreddit and wait a few days inbetween each time you share the link. I purchasing more reddit accounts from fiverr to speed up that process. Its hard to find a seller because fiverr doesnt show the sellers on the search results. Its only 5-10$ and i can use it for other things and i can always sell the accounts after.

    why is a high karma reddit account important?
    You will look like you are spamming less. If they see its aged and has karma they will get less suspicous.

    Now their is a limitation here. Theres only X amount of subreddits you can post to that are related to your product. Well what you could do is find cool products. Contact the shop owners asking if you could be a affiliate. BUT
    Reddit doesnt like affiliate links so you need them to set you up with a promocode and track it with the promo code.

    If you have say 4 reddit accounts you could do 2 posts each day.

    How else do I plan to sell my product other then reddit?
    facebook ppc ads (spent $20 without luck, but will try again)
    facebook group posting
    instagram bot (instagress)
    instagram shoutouts
    youtube
    google adwords
    local classified ads
    and others that i cant think of right now!

    I hope this motivates some of you out there to take action. This is fairly low investement.
    shopify - free trial
    .com domain - $1 with godaddy promo code, google it
    high karma reddit account - 5-10 $

    Good luck on your journeys! if you have any question feel free to ask below!

    EDIT: i forgot to mention i already got 1 affiliate.

    Hey thanks for the share! I just joined this forum today and this has motivated me. I think I will try this! Where did you get the Reddit accounts? I can't find it on fiverr

    This is an arbitrage method right? You find a cheap price on Aliexpress, setup a Shopify shop and set your own price.?

    Don't know what arbitrage method is. People call it the shopify method where they use fb ads and shopify store. and dropship from aliexpress

    Yes you find products from aliexpress and choose your own price

    I decided I would use Reddit to get some sales to have more money to invest in other methods of getting sales

    Good job, in your opinion do you think the right kind of comment on the right sub at the right time could generate 10 sales?

    Definitely yes. If it gets upvoted to the top. You would maybe need to boost or with some up votes to get it there or maybe it will naturally get upvoter
    I know someone who got a good amount of sales from Reddit because he got upvoted to the top

    Or just domain tied with shopify?

    Nice share. Thanks. So basically, this is the Aliexpress + Shopify method with your own spin about epacket & marketing, correct?
