Nice method, I have played with Reddit ads in the past & they can also work out very well with content locked pages, especially with specific game niches / mobile games & free gold / cheats / tip guides etc. May have to try out a bit of e-commerce on there also, like the spin :)

You're right. Reddit is far more targeted than FB. I think people go to FB because it has a billion users and most marketers advocate it.

I've seen marketers talk about reddit but the way they chase people off who are trying to (organically) promote stuff puts people off from going there.

For me, I just hate the general atmosphere of the site. But with an ROI like that I'd put up with it. :)

Sounds good, how much you charge for shipping?

Yes, but I am closing down the eCom/dropshipping academy because I don't have time for it. So I decided to just share everything for free now. Just closed down the homepage.
the layout for e-com blitz is looking way better anyway! Nice stuff!

Yo i had a same type project a few weeks ago and Reddit actually rejected my ad for the "free kind of type" stuff. Had high hopes but my ad never ran.

hey i have been a member of reddit for 4-5 years now and i opened a dropshipping store last week. First sale came from reddit too. But i submitted the store for opinions on a couple subs and theres a couple comments saying "you are just reselling from aliexpress" ... how'd you combat this? im thinking about just linking the aliexpress page to the people interested just to gain some respect or whatever but im not sure. I dont wanna come across as scummy for selling a $20 jacket at $50 even though the same jacket in forever 21 goes for $60-$70

Use paid ads and disable comments. You may need to be a bit more unique this time around.

Thanks for the useful info. You said you dont have time for dropshipping anymore, what are you doing right now instead? What else do you teach? Can I get the full ecom academy?

Do you get people messaging you about where it their product and do they ask for a refund? Also, do you say when the item will arrive?

I'm interested in this too. I've always been a bit wary of AliExpress dropshipping for products that will ship in 30+ days. Do you tell people this straight away and/or get many people charging back or getting edgy about not receiving the products for ages?

For the prices, I'm almost tempted just to buy wholesale, get the shipping discount and just post myself to UK only...

By the way, do you have a bit more explanation on your setup? Cause i see your landing page is offering the toy for free? So what are you actually selling?

He charges and marks up shipping costs to make profit off that. The product is so cheap to purchase that this works.

Hey Smitsen, sorry but i want specify how r u making money from this , so you sell only cheap items, and *shipping cost* includes Ali's price (free shipping there?)+your mark up? Or i understand your share not properly?
