    Some of you know me some don't, I into Youtube where I'm doing pretty well but what if Youtube bans me tomorrow or they don't pay anymore?

    More info's on my Youtube thread here: Hard Work Pay's off Eventually


    I NEED A BACKUP!


    [​IMG]

    Not very long time ago I was playing with a dropshipping store, and I was caught in the spell!

    I tried different things - some worked, some not so much - and I was telling myself, if I start something in this industry I will do something I like - on a niche I like, or I have some knowledge.

    My girl is involved in all my projects, and she decided that will help me as always (she's a pro in Adobe Tools - logo's, videos and any graphics) and we decided:

    We have a cat, we love this fu**ing cat - we will sell cats products!

    Not any products a "micro-niche".

    Social Media Preparations:

    • Created a facebook page - I have run some ads - got 1800 real likes from UK/USA.
    • I have restricted a lot of countries on my facebook page - I want just tier 1.
    • I have verified this page with Gray Badge - I think it gives more credibility and some say that will rank higher in searches (Facebook)
    More social media accounts will be added soon.

    Spent: 25$

    Website & Hosting

    • Got a branded domain - the same as on Facebook.
    • Got a VPS from Vultr for one year.
    • Installed Wordpress
    • Bought Alidropship Plugin which comes with some nice themes from @Yarosss
    • Setting up design, text, added 25 products from Aliexpress - all with the epocket option and highly researched.
    Spent about 100$

    Traffic & Promotion

    This part will be done through Facebook ads and shoutouts - maybe some guest posts also.

    Plan for promotion:

    Picked up 8 products from aliexpress and setting up 8 facebook ads for 3 days each with a budget of 5$/day.

    If any of this has at least one sale after 3 days, i will increase the budget to 10$/day for 2 more days.

    The rest I will cancel and choose other products.

    My girl has helped me with some nice graphics for ads.

    -------------------

    I invest in this Journey what I'm ok to lose if this is the case, so i have a budget of 750$.


    I will not update this thread daily - i'm not here to annoy people, i'm sure i have done this already with my English.

    Me and my partner are also thinking about getting into the drop shipping business, I've had success before with FB ads and a few products on shopify, but it just wasn't my type of "thing".

    I hope you and your partner find success with it, keep us updated whenever possible!

    Good luck, man! Just for you to know. Now Social Media is all about video.

    I'm not saying Images Ads don't work, but Video Ads work way better. And maybe is not that hard if you can find some videos from the owner of the product and edit them a little bit to make them your own.

    Love u.

    You spent only $25 on ads for 1800 real likes?

    What sort of ads did you run?

    Just a small update as i'm focusing on growing this page for now.

    Got 1 post viral - and this gray badge seems to help alot. Had an insane growth with the help of ads/ shares and 1 shoutout.

    Going to tell more about it in my next post.
