    Not going to go for a long introduction here, but here in this journey, I will be creating several dropshipping websites for the goal of flipping them at a later date for $xx,xxx.

    As I know how to build these types of websites and get traffic/sales, it isn't a daunting task and I know that some money will be made. However, I have failed to create a site up to a standard where it will constantly produce money like a well-oiled dropshipping site would do.

    So, I will be creating several dropshipping sites along my journey that will contribute to the main goal of $1k+/Day and beyond.

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

    The sites I will be making will be supporting a type or organization regardless of the niche. If I am going for a toys niche, I would display on the site that I would donate 5~10% of all revenue to a non-profit organization in the specific niche.

    This will hopefully boost sales from people that like added benefits to their purchase, as well as support some organizations out there helping people in need.

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

    Progress:

    I currently have one site setup that won't be included in this journey which is making a few hundred dollars a month. This will be my primary funding source until the sites can self-sustain itself.

    I will be displaying the sites as A, B, C, and so on, so that I can talk about them without revealing the niche or everything being to complicated.

    Website A:
    - Military Niche
    - Bought Domain & Have Hosting
    - Supports non-profits helping Veterans in need.

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

    I will be using a plugin/theme combo from one of the guys here with a dropshipping thread since I have received it to test. It makes the site look similar to Walmart/Costco (Big E-Commerce Site) and will add a lot of trust, since even premium themes look like they have been hastily made.

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

    Plan:

    I plan to not do much SEO, since the niches I am going for won't be profitable much through organic searches. However, I will be relying A LOT on social media to gain traffic and sales.

    I will be using several of IndianBill's tools in this journey, as they can provide me with a lot of social media traffic using several of my methods. I will be specifically be relying on FaceDominator, since I have a method that I shared a week ago that works quite well for ecommerce sites.

    If you have any questions, please ask them! I will try and update at least twice a week or when important events happen.

    Update #2

    I have set the site all up with the payment processing, logos, categories, shipping, etc and the site is finally ready for action.

    I will be mostly using social media traffic with a bit of organic traffic along the way. I will most likely rank for some long tails so it shouldn't be that hard to get a few visits a month from Google, although it won't be my primary traffic source.

    Since twitter follow/unfollow isn't working that well, I'll be using Facebook and Instagram for my social media traffic. I will be doing a specific method that I have used before that worked well for Facebook, and do the usual follow/unfollow for Instagram until I get a good follow base and then start promoting my site with coupon codes and such.

    $0 profit for now, but we'll see in a few weeks how well this site is going to turn out!

    What niche? You should also try Pinterest. Traffic there has high ROI

    New Update:

    Haven't updated this journey in awhile, but decided to do so, as I have gotten a lot of progress in this journey while also working on my Amazon journey.

    Here is what I have been doing for the site. I have tried FB ads, but ended up spending $20 for a $20 sale. So it was't really worth my time making the ad and such, but it was a good experience and I'll get back into it once I learn a bit more about how everything works.

    With my FB method of scraping friends using FDom and adding, posting, I have received around $800 in net sales, (proof screenshot coming soon), in which I will be re-investing into a VA that will handle a majority of the work. I still have to do the payment stuff such as buying the products and sending the products to the customers, but the traffic part will be handled by my VA.

    My next few updates aren't really going to be based off of what I will be doing, since the VA will be handling that, so hopefully in the next few updates, I can update my thread on some milestones that I may have achieved or something worthy of sharing. But if that isn't the case, I'll probably just update on what I've been doing, so that people that may need help can ask and get it here.

    Update:

    My two sites have been going very well with my excelling VA and friend, so I have decided to open yet another dropshipping business. I am still in high school and play for a sports team at my school, so I decided to leverage my interest in this niche and see what I can do with it, as I have connections to players in different school teams as well.

    I have found a supplier for a famous company in this sport in which I can get products for $40 cheaper than what stores around this area sells them for. So I created a shop that offers legit products for around $20 less than what they have been usually getting for and we are already the local supplier for our school.

    I plan to expand this shop to schools that we compete with as well, so that we become a local supplier of all the teams in this district. Once we see a passive income flow with this, we will be looking towards Adwords and FB Ads to launch nationwide and scale up our business :D
