    So this is gonna be my first journey thread. Got some inspiration from other threads here and decided to start my own shopify store.

    I am going with dropshipping, however, not the free+pay for shipping route.

    My Niche is in the in lifestyle and clothing. I'm open to suggestions from Pros to suggest ways i can have more profit.

    I have already bought all the domains etc and have setup my store.
    Expenses: 52.04 CAD
    Revenue:0
    Profit:-52.04CAD

    DAY 1


    Today started with me adding more products to my store, tweaking the collections tab and all while setting up my instagram and facebook page. I contacted various page owners on instagram and asked for paid shoutouts. Ran two shoutouts. One at 8amPST and another at 3pm PST.
    Had my first sale at 10pm PST that night. The feeling of my very first sale was awesome.

    Things to note: I had feedback from friends who saw my store that the menu button on mobile was tiny and was hard to notice, people thought i was only selling 4 products because there were only 4 featured products on my Home page. Got to figure out how to change that tomorrow.

    Expenses: 65.47 CAD
    Revenue:40.49CAD
    Profit:-24.98CAD

    DAY 2
    So today is day 2. I worked on adding more products and also trying to divide the categories clearer. I have not figured how to change the "menu" icon on mobile.
    Paid 20$ for two shoutouts. One was done at 9pm PST, the other one is gonna be done at 2pm PST.

    So far have 110 visits today but no sales. will update along the way..
    Expenses:20.58CAD
    Revenue:0
    Profit:-20.58CAD

    Nice journey! Good luck.

    Do they put the link in their bio?

    How are you finding pages for shoutouts. A platform or just messaging them asking them?

    Make sure your site looks trustworthy,legit and has authority. Less friction on the buyers, the easier the sale.

    Yep, I get them to put the link in the bio
    I source them by using keywords in my niche then contacting the page owners directly.

    You might need help in promotting this journey .

    I suggest the following that can help you .

    Youtube comments on the niche your selling products in .

    Facebook group comments on the niche your selling products on .

    Join forums in your niche your selling products , use the free space to advertise your website , think out the box can get you good traffic.

    Do keyword research in your niche look for longtail keywords with over $1 cpc and make sure competition is low and monthly search is heigh , know write blogs with them keywords....

    Get loads of images and watermark the images with your website name , stick a fadded sale wording over the images, know upload to all the image websites that get used on the.net.

    Find chat rooms in your niche , start helping others and throw in the odd promotion of your website url to get chat traffic.


    When you got the cash , use adwords and bing to increase paid traffic .

    When you got the cash use the following bots to increase traffic.

    Make of bot followliker or massplanner.

    Instagram bot
    Twitter bot
    Pintreast bot
    Tumblur bot

    Make of comment bot ninjablaster

    Youtube comment bot

    Thanks I'm actually doing research and learning more about generating followers thru massplanner etc. One questions though are these forbidden by instagram and is there a risk of my page getting banned?

    You need to use short url and bounce of other websites to stop ban it a whole diffrent subject .

    But if you ant heavy at spamming should be ok ,but i would use a short url

    Do everything slowly and read as you go along, that way your understand the right ways to increase traffic and not get to many ban ok.

    Safe then sorry.

    With blackhat we all use mulitipule accounts and loads of proxies and bots and apps very hard to just explain everthink your brain and my brain will blow up , but the forum got it all on here loads of reading make right discussion.

    Want to say this , as we all use multiple accounts with our bots, and ideas , getting ban not a big thing as we divide accounts up ,so we dont have all our eggs in one basket, a ban is normal into todays internet marketing game just need to be smart in what your doing....

    Making new accounts and skapping one back afther a ban is way foward .

    Making accounts is a ling process . So we buy them , and use sim cards to verify them when asked.

    Good luck hope i have helped ...
