You're about to see what actual steps one bloke took to make$49,394.17 clear profit online in his first 90 days – (so you can copy and win)
Learning from theory is one thing but I always find that seeing it in action from actual real life case studies is entirely another.
So I want to share a story from one guy in a Facebook group I am in who started his first store just 90 days ago.
Here are the rough details of the strategy.
He started an ecommerce store and he is using shopify to set up and run his store.
(as a caveat I want to mention that I used to be a fan of running your own store using wordpress since there are some great stores you can use… but recently paypal rewired their system and now there are a whole pile of technical things you have to have in place, including security certificates, the latest encryption and other complex technical obstacles.
Using shopify means that they take care of all of that so you don’t have to worry about it.)
He’s sourcing most of his products directly from Aliexpress and getting suppliers to dropship direct to his customers.
He also set up a new Facebook page which he could use to set up the Facebook shopify store plugin. (you can basically get your shopify store to show up on a Facebook page.)
He also started running ads to all new audiences using Facebook ads. These are ads to audiences which he’d never targeted before…
So in summery he set up a shopify store, a Facebook page, found some products he thought would sell, which he then set up in his store, and then used Fb ads to send people to that store.
Sounds simple right?
Of course he did not just find a winning product straight out of the gate. He tested a few things until he found some products which sold really well and repeatedly…
Of course he did not find the right audience or the right ad straight out of the gate either… But, he tested different ads to different audiences until he found winners.
All ad sets were started at between $2 and $5 a day. Losers were dropped quickly and winners were scaled. The wins from the ads that worked more than made up for the losses the failed ads generated.
No ad set was ever scaled over $10 a day and he ever spent more than $300 a day, yet he was still able to hit $2500 days again and again.
Over the space of 90 days he had 49,510 visitors, got 3,775 orders and made a total revenue of $102,904.52 of which 46% was profit.
That’s profit factoring in all product costs, website costs, ad spend and 4% transaction fees from using shopify and paypal.
That’s $49,394.17 pocketed in 90 days.
Here’s what he had to do for it…
1. Take a risk
2. Be prepared to work hard
3. Try things to see what works
4. Answer a lot of emails (reckoned he answered around 1000 emails in that 90days.)
5. Be prepared to get it wrong and keep measuring and adjusting things on the fly
He did it all himself.
He used no VA’s or support staff
He handled no product… all product was drop shipped out using e-packets direct from the supplier.
What’s powerful about this information:
• This is do-able by anyone since all the resources are there ready for you to use.
• You don't need a huge budget to get started with this
• The tools are there to measure your successes and scale the winners
• Shopify is very user friendly and non technical
• Once you get runs on the board you can begin to outsource the customer service to a VA leaving you more free time … to either find more winners or … go and play.
What can you do:
Get your free Shopify trial and set up a store.
Connect it to your paypal account.
Find some products on Ali-express you think will sell. (check out Pinterest & watchcount.com to get some ideas)
Place those products in your store at 100% or more markup (including postage costs from the supplier)
Run Facebook page post ads showing those products to relevant audiences. That will show you who is interested in those products… once you have enough engagements you can also run those ads to lookalike audiences which will help you get your ad in front of other similar people.
You can even run ads to those who have bought – remember it’s 10x easier to sell again to someone who has already bought from you than to a new person who has never bought from you.
I know this is action packed article and it’s probably worth re-reading and unpacking action steps and things you need to consider…
But let me ask you a question…
I could give you all this information in an extended video based course and change you $997 for the privilege… I could make it run for hours of lessons which you might never make it through…
Or I can give you the gritty how to action steps on the back of a napkin so that all you need to do is go ahead and take those steps…
Personally I know which I’d prefer… Your in precious – let’s not waste it on entertainment but on the key data you need to get started…
Yes there may be things you need to look up how to do… if that’s the case go hit youtube… all the answers are there…
And get into making a change…
Let me ask you one final question…
What would things look like if in 3 months you’d made an extra $49,000?
