    Hi everyone! So my background is a bit sad lol I started 2 journey threads and "failed" both. But to me it's not a failure because I wouldn't be where I am today with my knowledge if it wasnt from these journeys.
    Basically I wasted too much time on CPA+IG with fake niches etc. I'll leave it to people willing and able to add hundreds of accounts a day OR have a better strategy than mine.

    Then I tried dropshipping with facebook ads and to be honest, it was just a bad time for me I was broke and couldn't play with money so I had to stop. It wasnt that bad though.

    So for a long time I had this project in mind but didnt start it because I wanted a quick method to make money and that has been my biggest mistake.

    First, I was against getting employed and that has changed. I will go and get a job to be able to invest in this.

    The Plan:

    I will have 5 instagram accounts with different niches. I will choose it carefully to make sure people are extremely interested in it and that it's popular enough.

    Then, I will grow these page to about 5k-8k followers. If the engagement is good I will start the dropshipping right away.

    I will go with the free shipping method instead of free product + paid shipping.

    The pictures that will be posted will be automated. that way I'll be able to go to work without worrying about anything. I will try to have a good engagement it's not just about growing fast I want these pages to be quality too.

    I will probably create a facebook page and twitter page for each of them.

    I just want to add that I already have a business page and it has about 8k followers with okay engagement and it's my main business. I want to sell t-shirts, crop tops etc for men and women in this niche once it grows more and also launch a website for it with daily content (a blog), but I don't want to grow it with a robot or follow for follow. So I will pay for shoutouts and do giveaways.


    That's it guys this is my plan!

    If I'm able to make 15$ daily with every instagram page and that my "real" business (let's call it like that) makes 30$ a day, I'll be able to make ~100$ a day.

    Not sure yet I'll start manual I think and will be looking for a bot after.

    So I found my 5 niches and it's all something that I love personally so it's gonna be fun and easier to create a great connection with the followers and the journey won't be a pain in the ass.

    UPDATE

    Well hi. That's something I didn't expect but I actually kept doing what I said I was gonna do in the first post of this thread but never updated it because I got insanely busy with something called life and its ups and downs.

    The only thing is that I grew 2 accounts instead of 5. Now I have 2 10k accounts with a 12-15% engagement. Followers are REALLY engaged like if I do a poll in the instagram stories the results are insane etc.

    The problem:

    I think it's quite funny lol (better than crying). A few months ago, I launched my dropshipping store on one of these page. I was in LA in a business trip so I spent like 6 hours making the website using shopify. The day after I got a sale I was like YES things are gonna go as planned I'm gonna make 2-3 sales a day with this page and then I'm gonna attack the other 10k page I have and keep it growing, and create new pages etc. I think I got like a sale after that and THAT'S IT. Then a month later, a big page in the same niche gave me a shoutout for free and it brought me a sale.

    I think the only other sale I got was a few days ago. I finally have the swipe up option so I used it, got like 50-60 visits on the site, 1 add to cart 0 sales. When I see this I'm like okay my site must be HORRIBLE! I take a look and nope it's fine. Could be better so I decide to make it better looking and add trust badges here and there and add a Best Sellers section.

    Today I promoted 2 products and my whole site on instagram and in a few hours got 28 visits, no add to cart at all lol.

    Yesterday I did a poll on that page and in less than 24hrs I got 1800 views on the instagram story and 700 votes. Something is definitely not working for the website.

    I'm using Aliexpress products and the price is reasonable I lowered it as much as I can. The shipping is free too. I think I got more sales when the shipping wasn't free (WTF).

    But there's also good news, my pages are growing quite fast 50-60 followers a day for some it's not enough but I don't want to get blocks etc.

    I'm gonna update this thread but if anyone has experienced that issue PLEASE give me some advice it's just crazy to me lol. Some people are having like 3 sales on a 5k page.


    OH also I posted not a long time ago a post specifically about a product that I'm selling, it got 2000 likes and 400 saves I think 90 website clicks NO SALE. and there were comments like: I NEED TO GET THIS, I'M SO GETTING THIS.

    I'm not even sure if there's was any add to cart! Also just want to mention that my website is secured.

    Anyways that it that for today guys! See you in the next update!

    UPDATE

    What a coincidence, I JUST received a 114$ order! Not in profit but the person still bought 4 items! Maybe I was impatient after changing some things on my site!

    Anyways I created another page today in the exact same niche and will be growing it and then direct it to my store too. I'm gonna create 1 more page like that and then focus on the other niches.

    What I want is consistency because 1 sale every 3 months is not so good :)

    Thanks guys for the support!

    UPDATE

    So today I got 37 visits only 1 add to cart and no sale.

    I will try to promote my products regularly. I didn’t want to spam but I want to make money so I’ll promote it in a good way so that my followers don’t get pissed.

    The other page is warming up kinda it only has 11 followers now lol and when I’m posting the caption gets deleted sometimes.

    Really my goal for now is to make enough sales to pay month my expenses and then focus on creating other accounts and growing it.

    ~ 10.4k followers

    UPDATE

    So yesterday 76 visits, 2 add to cart no sales
    Today 19 visits 1 add to cart no sales :(

    Could be many reasons why but I already changed my website and lowered my prices so I’m not sure what I can do more except drive more traffic.

    Again if anyone has any tips please tell me

    May be you target the wrong users on IG? Just try to find more related profile to your niche

    I know some people who are successful with dropshipping on ig, I'd day it's really important to promote a that peoples can't find on their usual stores if you want to sell. Good luck
