$28,000+ in sales with a brand new store

Hi everybody, this is Nico from Argentina.

@kingpin, I've read the full thread in order to get some insights on how you operate. I'm still not an owner of an ecommerce store, basically for a doubt on how the financials of this business work. I'm having some trouble to understand how the cashflow works (not the flow itself, but the US accounts, credit card payments, paypal, alipay, etc). Do you have any referral site that addresses this problem?

I have a monthly salary to back the initial sales, so the strategy I thought about was:

For sales money:
  1. Ecommerse sale payment goes to Paypal
  2. I use my personal credit card to order on AliExpress
  3. Cancel the credit card debt with my salary
  4. Accumulate profits in Paypal Account
  5. Start using paypal account money to buy on AliExpress
For Ads I was thinking on using my credit cards, covering the expenses with my monthly salary (keeping an eye on the ROI in the Paypal account).

Do you think this is a good strategy for starters? How would/did you implement it?

Thanks for your time!

Hi mates,

Just some Shoutouts that will surely help you in many ways. Its been a while i wasn't so active on the forum and thought like posting something. 70,000+ times my journey thread was read and its nice to know that it's actually helping people. I get emails, PMs everyday telling that my thread helped them getting success with dropshiping. Soon I will be posting a new strategy that will work like amazing in whole 2018. I am still testing the strategy and its working wonderful. I will share it once i get more maturity making it work seamlessly.
For now Just sharing some points that you should consider :)

1. Do not choose niche or market with big audiences. Anything below 600k is sweet. It's always beneficial to be a big fish in a small pond rather being a small fish in a big Sea

2. Get multiple stores. Relying on a single store is foolish according to me. Buy more Alidropship Licenses :) ask @Yaros for discounts.

3. Study Guerilla marketing and apply it

4. Pump and dump more and more videos on YouTube about your stores.

5. Start affiliate/referral program and find marketers who may promote your store products.

6. Create landing pages with upsell Setup for every product you're promoting. ITS MUST!

7. Focus on adding blog posts about your products and categories

8. Use pixel caffeine plugin if using woocommerce.

9. Email marketing is still amazing

10. Build mobile apps for your store and publish them on app stores.

Think long term. Never give up

:)
 
I need some help please.

I'm using the alidropship plugin version (not Woo).

I've made a landing page with Elementor Page Builder.
But I'm having some problems with the link / script for adding a button that goes straight to checkout ?

Could anyone help me please, with the code / url I should use, to add to my button so I go straight to the checkout page with the item added to cart, ready to being bought ?

Really, any help would be appreciated !

Thanks in advance.
