    Hey BHW

    day 1-

    Just a quick intro, I'm an artist who barely makes money. I've always been pretty computer savvy- I type 80-100 WPM, can read very quickly and I can absorb info like a sponge. Yesterday I opened up my first shopify store after a few hours of site creation/grabbing products.

    I actually almost had a few sales but my paypal was fucked up the first night lol. I completely changed my niche today and overran the site. I will probably end up changing the niche however. I'm currently bad at establishing ideas for what good niches are. Today I spent a lot of time browsing forums and using instagram as ways to find out what niches are being selected.

    The one commonality between my store/engagement was that I gained ALOT more interaction and engagement through IG (as opposed to fb ads). FB ads are expensive after a while and I'm having horrible engagement through that lol.. damn.

    Any successful Shopify store owners out there? Would love to discuss my site/some ideas. I have a pretty cool name for my site but I'm thinking that it's way too broad to be a niche store. please comment

    mixture of both. I'm running FB ads which is DEFINITELY targeting the wrong audience, 385 Post reach, 5 engagement lol!!! Trial and error.

    Hoping tomorrow sheds some light on this IG thang

    Why bother going with a niche store. For all you know next week you might see a different product in a different niche and realize that that product would probably make you a killing.

    I suggest making a general store so you can sell whatever products you want.

    And what's with the poll. Shopify or instagram?? Those 2 serve different purposes. Shopify is your store, Instagram can be used to drive traffic. So what exactly is the poll?

    My store is actually a general store! Cool. I was thinking that this would convolute having an IG page, etc. I'm still putting together 2+2 on building a network that will redirect traffic to this site etc.

    The Shopify vs Instagram= traffic-->shop (This would include IG.. not sure how to promote a general store on IG without running into TONS of competition) or getting followers on IG, selling shoutouts/CPA.


    The store is a general store instead of a niche. As of today, I have an IG account with the name of my shopify site, along with a few ads posted on IG. Shopify store has some products up (15, various niches) I don't know how the IG page will get followers when I'm currently just posting ads linked to 0.00+9.99 shipping xD

    would this mean that I need to create multiple IG's pertaining to the different products on my site?

    Well! Made 1 sale today.. Decent traffic, although I'm starting to understand why i'm not selling shit.

    My FB page attached to my FB ad has 0 likes, brand new page lol. People probably aren't thinking it's legit.

    Also came up with an idea for an invention that will probably be sellable. Got in contact w some manufacturers today. I love spending hours a day on a computer lol so maybe IM is going to be cool for me :)
