    Hi, everyone.

    First of all, I'm apologize for my English, this is not my native language.

    Little background:

    I'm 31-years old, work on half day job 5-6 hours a day. but because of health issues, I'm trying to quit and work only from home(a little bit hard in my country because all is expensive). I tried before to make a social website and make money from local shops who will be registered on the website, but the budget was to low to win competitors and the project was shut down. but I'm always trying to take some positive of the experience and learn something, so in that project, I learned basics of SEO.

    The new mission:

    Now I will start with Shopify dropshipping using Facebook ads.
    for the start I will try with 2 shops, one shop will be a single product. the second shop will test products.
    My goal will be 100$ a day profit till the end of June.
    But most important is to learn the process, how the dropshipping world works, how the FB ads work. make a big customer email list, and build a private-label online business.


    What I have already done:

    - Learned the basics of FB ads from Udemy course.
    - Learned some strategies from YouTube.
    - Build a single product shop on Shopify.
    - Set up a FB page.
    - Ordered the product to test shipping times and make some video ads.
    - Registered a small company in my country to pay taxes...

    Things to do:

    - Connect the billing system to the shop.
    - Connect the credit card options(In my country it's separated and not included in Shopify list)
    - Build a second shop to test products.
    - Decide with which strategy to go with FB ads.
    - Create an Instagram page ( I have to?)
    - Any suggestions? what I forget?

    The budget is $5k.

    Why do I decide to make this thread?
    Make a deadline for my goal, motivate myself and try to motivate other people.
    Go with my goal in public ( i read its helps xD)
    One of my goals this year is to meet new people in online business, not only offline.
    Learn from BHW community (I've read this forum for 1 year now its time to post my journey)

    So any suggestions/tips will be welcomed. Let's go! )
    I will try to update weekly.

    Hey! Sounds like an interesting journey - hopefully you will be able to reach your goals.

    If there's anything I've learned promoting Shopify products on Facebook it's that direct linking right to product pages rarely ever works. The key is getting them into an email/messenger marketing funnel to warm them up first. Then you can eventually send them discounts, coupons, etc to push them over the edge of buying.

    It takes a lot of time and work, but the more effort you put into the better the results will be. If e-com was easy, everyone would be rich. :)

    Good luck!

    Hopefully you'll make it!

    But don't you think you should better start with 1 shop only, and then expand if/when the first one has taken off?

    Either way, Good luck!

    Thanks for the advice :) I'm thinking to try this method for marketing funnel https://www.blackhatworld.com/seo/method-make-money-with-building-a-list-of-loyal-messenger-subscribers-step-by-step.1143765/#post-12299657


    Thanks, mate ) my motto for life is "Hope for the best, prepare for the worst". so I don't want to stuck and lose time when/if the first shop will die.

    Thanks!


    Thanks! I will look at that.

    Good luck for the journey. Although the competition is too high in dropshipping, but if there is a will there is a way.

    Put your best efforts to research the best product, right audience and then should have good amount of money testing on facebook.

    5k is a decent budget to split test. I would recommend 3 ad sets for a single campaign targeting different interests and then re target after data isngathered

    Thanks bro, I'm not rushing with the updates because the first steps are learning.
    Because its the main goal, if I lose all the money and I will not know how the all process is working, that will be the biggest failure.

    Thanks for your reply.

    Thanks bro.

    Thanks.

    Thank you for the recommendation.

    Thanks, I think the biggest problem of investing is losing time and losing the relevance of the method.
    So while you investing, check what will be the next trend.

    Thank you.

    UPDATE:

    So after connecting the billing system, I decided to test the shop only with Paypal and only after to add a credit card option.
    I run my first ads for 3 days to test creatives, with "Dynamic Creatives Ads" and I saw that my main video doesn't perform and the shitty video is batter X_x..
    Today I will turn off the ads and will try to analyze them. ( If someone has a great guide on how to analyze all the numbers its will be great if you will share it)

    Meanwhile have 1 abandoned checkout (Forget to remove the shipping fees :eek:)
    So I sent a discount code to the first customer and I hope he will come back.

    Great Journey so far. If you are analyzing your facebook ads, you need to customize few columns before looking at the number, check these guidelines to get an idea how to analyze your results.

    I found this to be useful for my campaigns whenever I run ads for my clients.
