Hello and welcome to my Shopify Drop shipping Journey. Firstly I would love to say a few words about me and my reasons to start this journey, and then I will proceed with the journey details.

I'm not going to bother you with my personal information because generally, no one cares about it and it's not essential for this journey, so there is no need to waste time on it. What's vital for you to know is that I'm not a newbie in the drop-shipping, Shopify, and e-commerce generally. I started with drop shipping five years ago, since then I learned a lot, tested a lot, failed a lot, succeed a lot and so on... I'm a member of the BHW forum for 2.5 years, and to be honest I never really contributed to this community, so I feel like now is my time to say "thanks" to all of you.

Why I started this Journey:

In short lines - to prove that drop shipping is and will always be profitable, to have some fun, learn something new and maybe motivate someone. We will see how this will end up :)

Now we should start with journey details, I guess...

Choosing a niche:

I already found my niche, so I'll skip this step in the journey.
I'll write a separate thread about my ways of finding a niche in the upcoming days.

Next, PLAN. Whenever I start some new project, I write a strategic one-page plan, and my advice to everyone would be to do the same, EVERY TIME.

Here is my plan for this Journey:

As you can see, my primary and a pretty much only goal is to create a valuable brand making $30k monthly in revenue on "auto-pilot."

To achieve this goal, I need to take some key actions.

Key Action 1: Establish marketing process
Key Action 2: Establish an effective team/operation
Key Action 3: Establish partnerships
Key Action 4: Improving/Scaling business

Bellow, you can see how I plan to take this actions:

And here is my 90-day plan of process (What and how I need to do in the first quarter/first 90 days):

After that, I created my "Weekly Routine" - What process I'll take on the first week, what on second and so on for all 12 weeks in early 90 days. Every process from the image above needs to be done in the first 90 days.

So, my first-week actions will be to:

1) Build a store and make a partnership with AliExpress suppliers
2) Create social accounts

***Every Monday I'll update my actions for that week, to make this journey more readable.

Build a store and make a partnership with AliExpress suppliers:

When I say "partnership with AliExpress suppliers" I mean to make them sign a Drop shipping agreement. I always do this for two reasons:

  1. To clarify the terms and conditions of our business (Marketing materials, Processing time, shipping time, etc.)
  2. To get accepted by credit card processing company (I'm from 3rd world country, so having a signed agreement make things a lot easier)

Now, building a store.

I said that I'd try to create this with the minimal investment (didn't I?!) so the first step would be to get free Shopify plan.
I will not explain to you how to this; you can find everything in this ( https://www.blackhatworld.com/seo/how-to-create-unlimited-free-shopify-stores.1015335/ ) thread. It will last for first 50 orders; then I will need to upgrade.

I already bought a domain and connected it to my store. I found a GoDaddy promo code (just google GoDaddy promo code) and purchased the domain for $0.99. Again - minimal investment.

Quick tip: If you already have a GoDaddy account you can't use this promo code. Instead, create a new account with a new e-mail and make sure you use fresh (never used on GoDaddy) credit card for your payment.

There is a lot of steps to be done. I'll upload my checklist and progress for week one in upcoming days.

That's it for now. I'll update this journey three times a week - every Monday, Thursday, and Sunday. If you are interested, please follow and wish me luck, this will be some exciting sh*t :)

It seems like you have a very well planned out attack for this. The numbers that you're looking for are 100% achievable, as long as you stay persistant. Good job on really thinking this through and good luck on your journey.

The plan looks good. Thank you for advice to contact aliexpress suppliers about details, as long as I'm a newbie in dropshipping we didn't manage to do this but the store is running already and ads as well eventually this will help to solve some future problems. Thank you

No problem! That agreement can be beneficial, but the problem is not all suppliers want to sign it so sometimes you need to be really persistent with them.
Good luck man, I'll will keep following your journey.
Thank you!
May i ask which VA service you will use.
thanks
I usually take Virtual Assistants from UpWork.
Good luck, Alibaba and Aliexpress can be hard to navigate.
Thanks!
