    Hey all,

    I just posted in the introduction section last night--when I stumbled across this forum--and so far I love it.

    It is the exact type of community I have been searching for. I have found a huge amount of useful information in the few hours I have browsed through the forums, and cannot be thankful enough to have found BHW.

    With that said, I have been working on my own IM venture through dropshipping, and have decided to start this progress thread.

    I have had some results: I have experimented in around three different niches or so and have made about ~$500 total, but every dollar I made I put back into facebook advertising.

    I now have decided to grab the bull by the horns and put every ounce of my effort into this. I believe this forum and tracking my progress here are necessary tools to do this.

    I do have a specific goal in mind here, however, I do not want to reveal what that is until it is reached, or I hit another milestone--perhaps half way?

    Anyways, I will be posting here at the minimum once/week.

    I am currently working on two specific niches I have researched--I have since abandoned the other three, as that was when I really had no idea what the hell I was doing--and am currently at the marketing stage.

    I am at the moment learning to use followliker and trying to finally tame the beast that is facebook ads.

    What are you using followliker for in this method?

    Hey girolamo,

    I am using FollowLiker for several reasons:

    1) My niche is extremely broad and popular, and I thought it could only help me to promote my site through every social media channel possible

    2) Likewise, my niche has a HUGE following on instagram, and I think running facebook ads alongside followliker on instagram will greatly influence social proof

    3) I plan on contacting affiliates via instagram, and I would like to have at least a somewhat decent following on all my social media accounts

    4) Lastly, I am still very new to IM, and I think it will be good for me to learn how to use both followliker and facebook ads for promoting my store

    Thanks DKING!

    rickychardlo,

    I have done a little SEO, however, that really is not my focus at the moment.

    It will definitely be something I come back to at some point, but for the time being I am much more focused upon developing great facebook ads and learning how to use followliker effectively.

    I just got a VPS so I can run followliker indefinitely without having to leave my computer on--this was a hassle since I bring it with me around campus, etc.

    Installing it on the VPS now...

    Followliker running 24/7 on my VPS and all channels are covered.

    I am quite surprised how quickly I am gathering followers.. especially on pinterest.

    Still busting my ass!

    Got my affiliate program entirely set up--will be contacting them on instagram this week.

    I also had two instagram bloggers reach out to me and offer! :D

    Likewise, I also decided to switch to shopifiedapp from oberlo to automate my orders and I couldn't be happier!

    I got offered a lifetime purchase for all features instead of opting for a monthly fee. It has been well worth it.

    The shopified app is much more powerful.

    I couldn't be happier with my progress thus far and being apart of this forum!

    Thanks man.

    I have had four sales organically. I have yet to start facebook ads still as I am still waiting until all my backend work is complete, which will be in the next day or two. Oddly enough all of these sales occurred on the same day.

    I wanted every process in place before I began them--followliker working 100%, affiliate program set up, etc.

    The facebook ads will begin very soon!

    I currently mark-up everything by 100%, and then round this number to the closest psychological pricing point.

    I watched a webinar by Justin Cener on all the best pricing targets, then round it to the closest one:
    $9.99, 14.99, 17.99, 19.99
    22.99, 24.99, 27.99, 29.99
    34.99, 39.99, 49.99, 59.99, 69.99, 74.99, etc.

    These are essentially what are used in retail stores.

    Sure. What are you curious about?

    Thanks man!

    Correct. I also have a blog on my shopify store that I post 1 article per day to, so the traffic could be from that too.

    I follow my niche on google news, and choose an article every morning and spin it myself to make it completely unique.

    Checking in for the week.

    I plan to do a major update on how everything is going, but have not yet had the time to do so.

    But everything is still going great!
