    Seen tons of threads and journeys using instagram and choppily drop shipping and aliexpress a few months back around christmas. Not much action since. Im just curious is it a bust of a method or what? Ive tried it and didn't go well and want to attempt it again, I realize you can't just pick a "car" or "luxury" niche and sell stuff.

    You have to get a passionate niche more specific niche, I want to try it, Buy 5-10 accounts, some process run follow liker targeting a very specific niche and then make another instagram account or my business page for the niche and give shoutouts to it to generate sales.

    Im just curious if anyone is doing anything similar currently and if they are having success?

    saturated, IG is saturated with dropshippers and ecoms. And the people those who started the trend aren't even aware of the term "IM" or any of these forums.

    There may be a lot of ecom on IG but I think it's still possible to make money doing it. I set up a store, marked everything (Aliexpress products) up 2-3x, and then started posting product pictures + images that fit my brand on my Instagram account. I'm not botting either, doing everything manually. After about a week, I'm at 200 followers, 30-50% engagement rate, and I've made seven sales (about $50 in profit).

    Of course dealing with Aliexpress can be a pain and it took so long to actually get any orders shipped lol. Now that it's working I'm going to move into influencer marketing/building an affiliate program, and we'll see how that goes. My feeling is that with ecom you want engagement and therefore organic growth but I could have no idea what I'm talking about.

    7 sales the 1st week? wow. it's that easy? do you manually follow and like?

    i posted amazon specialty shoes, 4 months, 300 posts, 1400 followers, and ZERO sales. i do not follow anybody. i like about 700 daily.

    can affiliate and dropship be so different? or what's the reasons that cause such different results?

    The biggest issue with dropshippinng lies with shipping time. Nowday customer want immediate delivery upon payment and refuse to wait.

    Saturated? Haha, don't make me laugh!

    It's funny how saturated became the new easy excuse to explain failure. After four years on Instagram, I'm still waiting to see ANY of the popular methods used to monetize yet to become truly saturated.

    Best Regards,
    Jaymien.

    In my experience, a little bit of customer service goes a really long way. Every time I've had an issue getting an order ready I've reached out, offered a refund even. Every time they say "I'll wait." That may not happen if you remain silent and try to avoid dealing with the problem, but if you're proactive in your communication I find that people are pretty understanding.
