Hey BHW. First time poster but been a member/lurker for many years. I felt now would be a great time for my 1st post as to provide some motivation for us all!
Yes you guys read that right! One of my friends has a friend that cleared over 1 million in sales within 9 minutes a couple nights ago through her Shopify store for a product launch. I've never seen anything like it because this girl isn't a celebrity or a big influencer. She only has 35k followers. Just a 20 year old girl that has slowly built up her brand.

What is it that she is selling? Well she's in an industry that I have assumed for years was over saturated and impossible to break into. SKINCARE! She makes and sells her own skincare products and has built up a loyal Instagram following and they were all waiting on her new skincare product to drop this week. Seems like she might of got a viral push through Instagram but we should all be motivated by this. It shows me that the key to long term and short term success with selling products on IG by way of Shopify is to build a loyal following and provide an excellent product that is unique and differentiates from your competitors. She built her brand up on a shoestring budget. The skincare and makeup niche is still alive and kicking. I need to convince my girl to jump in the game and make a product lol.

It's not the first time. Her audience is 100% into her. She used to sell and close, create new product.. sell and close and so on. It's like the drop from all these skateboard brands (supreme, palace etc.) but for skincare. When you have a loyal audience and a great product it's easy to monetize.
 
Easily done.

The biggest thing anyone can do who wants to make real money is build an audience.

If you build a loyal audience of even, say, 50k people and even 20% of them buy your product for $20 that’s $200k.
This is definitely motivation for me because you're right. If they are loyal and engaged they will buy and 50K organic followers seems very attainable with the right product.
 
She must've really worked hard to reach here. And with a lot of patience.

She deserves every bit of it! Congratulations to her!
 
Well, she really deserved it tho
Her hard works paid off and she got a lot of loyal customers,
I think everyone has the same opportunity as her, as long as you work really hard to success like her
 
wow very motivating! Heres my question. did she build up a lot of followers over the years in her niche before ever releasing products? Like how do you build followers, do you just post about other skincare brands and give your opinions to help the audience? Or did she have her product from the start and promoted from day 1
 
congrats to her. Any link of the shop or IG? in DM if needed. thanks
I put her IG name in my original post but a moderator edited my post and took my entire last paragraph out that included her IG name. It was my first post so I didn't know it was against the rules to list a person's IG.

From what I understand she has slowly built up her following over the past years and was making products during that time. My friend was buying from her when she only had 5,000 followers and was just starting out. I think why her most recent product launch was such a success is because she has been teasing the idea of dropping a new product for months and the teasing was very engaging. It's like when you know the new PlayStation 5 is coming soon or a new pair of Jordans is coming soon and you mark your calendars for the release date.
 
If anyone would like to visit her IG page just private message me because I dont think I'm allowed to say it in the thread
