    Hello, im new here. Ive been reading and want to take action. Im really intrigued in the instagram shopify thing.

    So im going to start, i currently have a 8 month old instagram account with 12k followers, I used to post everyday when I had about 7k followers and it was engaged i was getting 700 likes a picture, now im currently around 200 likes a picture and its getting bigger everyday. I stopped using it for 3 months.

    I just purchased follow liker the 5 account license one.

    Im still learning how to use it and the most effiecent and effective way of doing things.


    Im just trying to get my account bigger, but eventually i would like to get traffic with this tool to my shopify store, its currently being built.


    Im in the Auto niche and my store is going to be for product with the auto niche.

    Im going to dropship everything for aliexpress, if this thing takes off then i will be getting a resaler certificate and start buying from better more legit suppliers.

    I just want to get my feet wet and start making a consistent income.

    I was selling on ebay doing very well profiting 3-4k a month. Im sick of ebay because my accounts keep getting suspended. The reason i used ebya was for the traffic no marketing needed.Marketi

    ng is expensive and not my strong suite, which is why im here hoping yall will guide me to marketing it, I plan on using instagram ads on facebook ads platform making a few campaigns and split testing i guess is what you call it. But it is expensive and eventually id like to start getting traffic from my instagram account and just using that.

    Im inspired from a few members on here, the one dude with the harry potter store, franklin and that 16 year old chick.

    especially the harry ptter dude his site seemed to really take off.


    Again my niche is cars and so im going to be listing 20 different items from aliexpress and just drop ship them, i found a few items on there for $2-$4 that i can sell for $10-$15

    Sorry for the typos im in a rush to get started and get this up.


    I think i will start doing a few ads to test and see if my niche is even any good, if not i will switch it to something else.

    I tried picking a passionate niche, do you think a auto niche is a passionate one? I think it is. If not then i will switch it.

    Im not selling car parts for repair. Im going to sell personalized cars items that make your car feel like your own if you know what I mean without going into great details about specific products. I think there are many people passionate about their cars.




    Also im haivng problems with follow liker, on instagress if i followed 1000 people id get back between 300 and 450 followers. on follow liker if i follow 1000 people i get if im lucky 30-50 people. Im not sure if im not targeting correctly, if it is my content or what. Im targetting carporn, lambo, ferrari, ect for my auto page on follow liker

    SO if someone could help me out, im also unfollowing every 3-7 sec and ive been doing that no problem, im not to worried about my account getting banned as it isnt really too engaged, i wouldnt mind starting over actually but i wont unless my account gets banned.


    Also i started using a service called gleam.io it seems pretty powerful in gaining followers maybe someone here can test it out and make better use out of it then i can.

    I really need the follow liker thing resolved before i can move on, so if anyone has any ideas that would be great. I was told atleast 30% of who you follow should follow you back and im around 3-4%

    Auto niche can be passionate if you target correctly. Muscle car enthusiasts, people who think only Ford trucks are the shit, or Chevy etc.. Think about those "piss on Ford" stickers etc.. Again, think outside the box. Nobody is going to buy a steering wheel cover from you and wait 3 weeks to get it. Think outside the box.

    Ok lets take the "piss on ford" example. How would i target that? Follow instagram accounts that hashtag "piss on ford" or are you talking about targeting it on FB ads?


    Also how can i gain more followers with FL?

    In that example I would just start following tags like Ford, Chevy, dodge, etc.. Maybe even certain models and vehicles. Obviously not everyone would be a match, but for those who do match will want to buy it.

    If I were to go with the sticker idea, I would personally offer several kinds. Piss on Ford, piss on dodge, piss on Chevy etc.. Have a title like "Do you have a friend who drives a sissy truck? Piss them off with these cool piss on stickers!" Etc..

    Again, think outside the box.

    I would just post it no more than once a day. No DM or commenting, that is spammy.

    Instagram can actually be very effective combined with Shopify. What you can do to market your IG pages, is buy shoutouts from similar car pages and start more narrow minded ig accounts, like ford only, or chevy only accounts.

    Journey Update 1

    Ive created a shopify store, ive added roughly 12 products, now its all about marketing. My store may need some tweaking as i dont know how professional it looks. Its very basic, its clean and simple. I find shopify kind of hard to use in all honesty.

    If anyone knows if there is a software that can make instagram account, i could use those to spam my links all over instagram.

    Your post is very long winded and poorly structured,

    If you break down more clearly what you want advice with i'd be happy to help. :)

    I would like to know really how to create a mass amount of accounts? And why when i follow tons of people with follow liker i dont get good follow back rate? On isntagress i used to get a way better rate but the following process was so slow.

    There's a lot of posts already with what you are looking for and different methods to choose from if you look.

    Just put time into figuring out what you want to achieve, then ask any questions and people will be happy to help.

    UPDATE:

    Im really Starting to Automate Everything, Store is Up and Running Got A Few Clicks from Instagram But so far that is it.

    I may have also found a business partner, i messaged a car page and they only have about 2k followers, i told him about follow liker and that it helps get you more followers he said he is going to buy it and help me promote my site, so that is good.

    Im not sure how much longer im going to post on here since it appears no one wants to see my journey, usually people wish the OP luck and such, I dont care about all that, im just saying this thread hasnt had much engagement or anything. Oh but when i put up earnings reports thats when everyone comes out of their holes lol.

    So im kind of encouraged, i basically made FL post 20 images in 10 minutes with the same caption telling people to checkout my website, its only been an hour and i had 15 unique visitors, its a start, someone did add a product to the cart but didnt finish the checkout,


    So its a start and a sign, i will do another blast tomorrow and see how it goes.

    I do have a question, with shopify is it like ebay, where you ahve to upload a tracking number? for the money to be released?

    The shipping is going to take 2-3 weeks and I disclosed it in my listings, i just dont watn any issues i have 0 experience with shopify, also how do you create another shopify site? IM thinking about making a IO hawk account and sell knock off io hawks, if i can get 2-3 sales a month on those via instagram by blasting away thats like $750 profit easy.

    You don't need a tracking number to fulfil an order. And unfortunately, shopify only lets you have one store. So I use that for my main business, and moving into woocommerce for my other stores. And the reason people aren't commenting is that this method kinda blew up and there is a lot of hatorade being passed right now.

    BTW, I was just giving the sticker idea as an example. To truly make this work, like I said, you gotta think outside the box. If it works for you though, then right on. I take donations all day. Haha.
