    Current SERP rankings (all done so far is just posting an article). Very good initial rankings.
    Big creds to @BlackBDO for on-page optimization tips.

    Thanks, I started a bit ago. I have a lot of potential leads and good response rate, but after a week I realized my emails were hitting spam for gmail and G suite. I was using a mail software with Zoho paid SMTP which is why I think that happened. I was looking into switching to using G Suite and getting gmass. If you could go over this with your update on Monday I'd appreciate it.

    As I stated in the beginning (and from my other threads) - I encourage competition and if I can help someone, even in the same niche - I'm all for it.

    Trust me, a whole lot of free golden tips and tricks will be shared in this thread that people will exploit fully. It's a big market, there's room for more :)

    First update.

    Created an email campaign, with the objective to collect leads. We'll use these leads to send personalized offers to before/during Black Friday with the hopes of scoring some sales.

    Giveaway campaign to celebrate 2 years since the brand was founded. This is a good way to celebrate as well as get noticed by new people and of course, get signup s for the giveaway.

    We're not going to do it the traditional way (landing page), but instead look into FB+Zapier.


    Quick run-down of what's set up so far.

    1) Facebook Lead-Ad. The lead format will give the user a pre-filled form (with name and email filled out automatically), which increases conversion rates drastically.

    2) Once form is filled, the user is asked to follow our Instagram because that's where we will announce the winners. This gives us free followers - but also builds trust to the brand because we have a pretty good feed.

    3) Zapier will detect when a new lead has come in, and will send an email to that user - asking the user to browse our website and reply with the watch model he/she wants if they win the giveaway.

    This puts them in our sales funnel, and sees ads about us on Facebook/Instagram/Adwords - which builds more trust to the brand and makes sure they remember us when Black Friday is coming.


    Facebook Ad:

    To see the ad and test for yourself:

    Video of it all being set up:
    PS: Apparently my mic was too close to my mouth - so expect some breathing noise. I will do an update on the ad targeting (as it's pretty broad now). If anyone wants the Mandrill script, just PM me.

    Thanks for the update buddy.

    Any youtube video link? because vimeo is not showing "full screen" button.

    I haven't watched video yet, are you showing your ZAP?

    If you think you can sell 650 watches in Black Friday. Dont you think that you could sell 10 watches a day. And it would be a good profit

    I am sure you are going to do better than you expect.
    You should try to program some Instagram shout outs for that day (or just before that day) on targeted accounts.
    Maybe offering PayPal payments in installments could help.

    Thanks for sharing. I'll keep an eye on this and wish you best of luck!

    Good luck. You should promote those vids on your youtube channel. Nice watches. Any BHW discount? Maybe try limited editions with numbers engraved in watches?

    Huge, huge success today! After some intensive SEO work (before this thread was created), rankings have begin to move.

    It's the #2nd keyword that will be interesting - it has over 250.000 searches on Black Friday.. If we manage to keep this position - man oh man..

    [​IMG]

    I have an AMA thread here on BHW. Feel free to ask specific questions in there :)

    Thanks! Hmm, I would say 70/30. Don't have all the numbers in front of me right now :)

    Thank you! No BHW discounts, and please don't buy a watch. I don't want this thread to come off as promotional - so if you want to support me, just feedback here on BHW! There are a lot of good brands out there, I'd rather direct you somewhere else.

    Yes, retargeting mainly but also adwords (for keywords we haven't yet ranked for organically)

    hey nice journey! i also have two successful e-commerce brands. maybe you like to talk via pm for strategies. I would suggest you to also do the giveaway with a second ad and chatbot (manychat). There you will get a lot of subscriber which you can send messages everyday with insane cr. my idea: saying that the winner of giveaway will be announced on blackfriday. until then you can message everyday with different cold lead messages showing your story and your different products and making the subscriber horny on the giveaway. and on blackfriday you make the final message like "Today we are announcing our giveaway winners, but we thought that everyone win... so here we give you a 20$ discount code as winner gift. The code is only active until blackfriday 23:59 ends" and also a 2 follow up message after several hrs remembering for the discount code. you can even expand the code activation to next 2 days (black friday weekend) when you are not fine with the sales :p etc. i have even more ideas for you. just pm me if you like ;) good luck! you will get the numbers!

    Very imformative thread so far, keep it up!

    BTW, on Your black Friday page, in text you mention 20% discount, but next to the product there is a 30% discount. You might want to keep that consistent :)

    @yakuzaemme
    is the brand your own?

    Is it white labeled?

    Is it dropshipped or shipped by you?

    Where are your watches manufactured?
