    Good evening everyone,

    It's going to be 2 weeks since I read the forum and decided to take the course.

    But before, a few words about me.
    I am 27 years old from Belgium (Mons) and I graduated real estate expert but I can not find a job in my field, or I work for fucking bosses. I want to be able to make passive income with Shopify + Aliexpress + FB / IG

    What I have planned
    Shop with 50 items maximum. I am targeting small items at low prices and that I can resell much more expensive. I have already found my niche but as we are never on 100%, I will see what it will give.

    What is already done
    Boutique Shopify with 15 items
    Facebook page (0 like)
    Page Instagram (0 follower)
    Domain name

    What I need to do

    Optimize the shop (logo / banner / video creation)
    Add some items
    SEO Optimization (in case ...)

    Questions that I have to ask you

    What should I do first? Post photos of my niche on FB / IG? And then only do my advertising campaign once I get to 10k?
    Or just publish an article and make a Facebook + IG shoutout advertisement?
    Sorry but I'm literally a big noob in this area :)

    If you have other advice, do not hesitate!
    Thank you in advance for your help and encouragement!

    Good luck with your Journey!
    To answer your question, I would suggest you post niche related posts on FB and IG. You can post some advertisements ones in a while. You can do something like 80% niche related posts and 20% advertisement related posts.
    To kickstart your website and Social media pages you can always buy shoutouts, but those are not necessary.

    Looking forward to your progress ;)

    good luck brother havent tried a shopify site myself but I see a lot of success with optimizing different ppc streams once you get your segment zoned in and your ads optimized i see people getting good money in it. The biggest stumbling point i have seen is during that optimization some lose alot of money trying to get everything right so expect some learning curve.

    best of luck!
