Hi DW,

Great info and very timely just integrating ali products into my site and trying this dropship model for the first time.

Do you do a mentor programme i'm in if you do!

If I ever become a "guru" ... please shoot me ... LOL :)
By the way do you really recommend Social Rabbit to run your social media? I have fb & IG pages but running them is proving a struggle with everything else. I was looking for single solution to do that but couldn't find any proper user reviews on social rabbit.

Many Aliexpress sellers have videos of their products. You can download them, then re-upload them to your Youtube account with a link to the product on your site. The sellers don't mind you doing this.
SWEET! I'm doing this today! Thanks for this.

I'm just really trying to get my head around getting my site seen and i'll definetly be implementing that strategy. My site has some pretty decent niche related articles on there but they're going to waste, should I be uploading them to sites like Buzzsumo with links back to my site and products? Or is about posting in FB groups which fills me with dread.

I'm also in the process of setting up my first email sequence so i looked a your mailpoet3 suggestion but i think that's just for templates not content right? I've linked my site to mailchimp and created some very basic templates and was hoping i could just copy and paste the content for now similar to what you're saying with youtube. I'll probably just end up subscribing to similar businesses and try some content curation.

Thanks for your help again any response is appreciated.

No ... it's a newsletter that pulls in your latest posts. (Among other things) I made a separate post category for selected products and it inserts them into the newsletter. It can even be set to post the newsletters out automatically at set times. There's at least a couple of hours learning curve to use it properly, but there is plenty of documentation available. It's a widely used newsletter plugin.

Hey again DW,

Thanks i watched a couple quick tutorials on this last night and i see what you mean. Definetly something i'll be using too.

Also just wanted your opinion again on the Social Rabbit plugin:

Before i buy anything like plugins i always investigate the issues users are having and what the support is like.

Two main issues keep coming up for Social Rabbit:

1) Images from posts and products don't upload to Facebook when using social rabbit to post
2) Many users have had their FB & IG accounts banned or shadow banned when using the plugin to automate some activity.
3) There doesn't seem to be much support when these issues arise.

Have you encountered any of these problems? and

Also if you don't mind what settings do you use for the plugin as i'm guessing users that were banned were using unrealistic spammy settings.

Cheers again for all your help.

If you want to cache any site and get massive result and no troubles what so ever. Get WP Fastest Cache. It's so worth buying the full version as it also includes database management and image reduction. This is the best cache app by far. You can even set to preload pages in the background for your visitors.

Have you compared it to any others? How does it compare to WP Super Cache? :)
