    Hello all!

    This is my journey to get to $500 per day before the summer of 2017 :)

    What im doing is very easy to do so anyone that want to follow can do so, only need to invest in a plugin and a domain.

    I myself bought a package for $299 from yarosss site alidropship_com and got everything setup and ready to run with 50 products in the store.

    i focused on Instagram and im using massplanner to automate my postings.

    I started in september and have slowly grown and i now have 10k+ followers on instagram, at first i bought some shoutouts to get the first orders and it worked great but needed to sell 3-5 products to break even, now with 10k+ followers i dont need to spend money on shoutouts im getting alot of orders naturally :)

    So my next goal is to increase the followers on instagram and also to grow on other social networks.

    i will update daily of my orders and revenue is about 50% of sales value.

    i will attach my sales since oct 16 , thats 2 months earning :)

    any questions im here to answer :)

    How do you promote your business except IG? I mean how do you do marketing? Fb Advertising?

    Awesome. I've some more queries

    1. which payment processor you're using ?
    2. Any problem you're facing with delayed shipping time from Aliexpress ? Any issues with custom duties?
    3. Average price of your products

    Keep minting more $$$.

    1. Using paypal only.
    2. Not much problem, maybe 20 days in average for shipping, have disclaimer on my website that it can take up to 35 days :)
    3. I have no idea, it's all from $10 to $250, most orders i get is around $50-$100

    Only problem i have right now is paypals 21 day limitation before they release the funds, need to pay from own pocket right now :(

    I am doing the exact same as you..
    What are you doing to grow your Instagram? I have 14.4k followers but struggle to make sales.
    Seem to be JUST breaking even the 2 months since I've started.

    Im just following the big accounts followers in the niche with Massplanner, liking 1 or 2 of the users posts.
    posting each 4h a new product

    it's pretty much on autopilot :)

    Thanks! Posting a new product? Do you post the same post again in this case? Or literally find a brand new product each time? The way I get around this is my niche is dogs so I post dog pics and then include products every 9th post. Interested to hear what you do, cheers btw.

    Im just posting products, have around 200, engagement is around 5-10% , could be higher but i dont want to waste time to hunt good content :)

    my profile is setup like a shop so products is what is relevant to the followers
