    Hello fellow BHW members.
    I've been a member for a little over a year now but only recently started to visit daily.
    I'm 24 years old and currently working as Account Manager in a web agency located in Belgium.
    I graduated as a full stack developer but wanted the social aspect in a job and wanted to build a lot of networks in my first working years.
    Been working for a year now and I'm currently responsible for the E-commerce section in the company.
    We are specialized in Shopify (80% of our e-com business).

    This e-commerce business has really gotten to me. I have a very wide range of clients, some make 5k revenue / month, others up to 75k. I go through the whole process, going to our Shopify developers to discuss the technical aspects but also sit down with the marketing team and discuss how to sell the products in the best possible way.

    Now the time has come for myself that I'm curious if I would be able to launch a succesfull Shopify store.
    Cause it's always different helping other people than go out and spend your own money of course.

    I'm currently searching for a good niche that could work with dropshipping. Got a few idea's but not quite there yet. Also I'm using this forum to get more insights in Facebook advertising since this is something I don't have a lot of experience in myself. And of course I'm hoping to meet some interesting people here which who I can share some good idea's with and have interesting conversations.

    Have a good day everyone!

    Wellcome to the forum! I wish you enjoy it :)

    I think Shopify is great too. There`s a lot of options to dropship and I`m sure you could fine much ideas here.

    Sounds great to me. You helped people create a 75k/month Shopify business and you never did it yourself?

    Thanks Coingrabber! Indeed, I just wanted to first gain enough experience with the Shopify platform. Also I'm coming from a technical background but had some great examples between my clients where we made shops costing 50k+ in development with perfect product pictures and everything making almost no sales. While I had others where we made a webshop with a tiny budget nothing special, but in the right niche, perfect marketing and a pinch of luck which like I mentioned makes 75k/ month. Also my clients are not working with dropshipping, so this aspect is new to me.

    This seems like a no brainer to me.
    You already know who are the ones making 75k$/month so just copy what they are doing. (not exact copy of course)
    It's probably a long shot but can you share some of those businesses? I'm looking for some inspiration.. :D
    All the best to you!

    Impressive. It's really interesting, seems like just doing things big is not enough. On the other hand, you can make good money without big funds too. Are you planning to spend a lot of money for your own Shopify Shop? It'd be interesting to hear about your budget.

    Hi!

    I think you should google the concept.
    You must look around you. The market you are targeting the audience. The area. All these things matter in a commerce site to grow business
