"When an order is placed in my Shopify Store for an Aliexpress item, do I then go to Aliexpress myself & order the item from them to be drop shipped to the customer?" Dropshipping with AliExpress is pretty easy. When you receive an order, go ahead and manually purchase the item on AliExpress. Then enter your customer's name and shipping address, and the seller on AliExpress does the rest. You should keep a spreadsheet on hand with all the products on your Shopify store, the price, the cost on AliExpress and a link to the listing. When you get an order, click through to the supplier and place the order. It's a good idea to let the seller know that you are drop shipping this item, so they do not include any invoices, promotions or other materials that indicate you did not fulfi this order yourself. During checkout you should leave a message for the seller like this one: "IMPORTANT: We're drop shipping this item. No promotions, and no invoices, please. Thanks!" Look for the option to use ePacket ...
Now, to answer your question about Facebook testing, success with ads depends on so many factors (we could spend an entire day training on this!). The key to succeeding with FB ads is realizing that when you start you are not buying sales. You are buying data. Try to see what products make people click as you warm up the FB ads pixel on your ecommerce store. See what kinds of targeting starts to get better results. Try different pictures and products - focus on ones that get the most action. Then see how you can generate sales: is your offer right? What about price? The key at this point is to get some buyers. Once you've gotten 100 sales you've got some key data that you can work with. FB Ad success is all about trial and error, testing and validating, scaling successful ads and then replicating the process.
Shout outs are not like guest posts. The person that you are approaching to do a shout out is not posting on your Instagram ... they are posting on THEIR Instagram page. It's basically a paid image post on popular Instagram account that fits your target audience. You piggyback on the pages' traffic and your picture will be seen, liked and commented by thousands of users within your niche. To get a shout out prepared for posting by the popular page, you want to take the following steps: Step 1. Find a popular page in your target niche willing to do shoutouts - there are certain indicators (they say things like "contact for business opportunities" or have a KiK account listed, etc.). Step 2. Reach out to the seller to negotiate a price for the shout out ($50 to $300 are typical for a 3 hour slot depending on how many followers the page has), and arrange for the day and time they will post your content. Step 3. Prepare a 640px by 640px image (or 15 second video). Regardless of which you choose, w...
***Answers in stars**** (1)Please I want to know if there is a way to come up with images that will help make my IG page more captivating not just having only product pics on my page, image like funny pics, cartoons etc? *** I like to use Flickr.com for great images (you can filter by "Creative Commons" to get images people are willing to have posted elsewhere without complaining). (a) If I use someone else image in my niche will there be any consequences for that *** This is NOT legal advice: basically you do not want to use images that you do not have permission to use. That being said, it's rare that someone will really care that you used their image on a single Instagram post. If you start using it to create products, logos, etc. they are more likely to have a problem. If you want to be 100% sure, purchase royalty free images from a site like Shutterstock.com or use any images labeled with Creative Commons or Reuse (you can find these even on Google or Bing searches).*** (b) Is it wise to create...
(1) Lets say after I run a test and the client is convinced and I ask them for their advertising budget and they maybe say $2000, do I have to break down how I intend to spend the $2000 by telling them how much each page will charge me for a shout out and then give them my own service charge lets say $500 per month? *** I think you need to feel this out and determine what the real costs are. At the end of the day you want to be make at least 30% mark up for your services, so if the add spend for say 10 shoutouts to generate X amount of followers = $1000, you want to make at least $300 on that deal by pricing your services at $1500 per month (account for any hidden costs). As for telling clients HOW you make the magic happen, that's YOUR trade secret, and clients do not need to know all the details. *** (2) Do I even need to explain what a shout out is to my client to help them understand how their money is being spent, If yes won't that make them go out and try to write to these pages asking for a sh...
Definitely start with a Shopify store - you get a 14 day free trial and then it's just $30 per month (not a bad investment to get started). Then start sourcing products on Aliexpress (cheaper, easy to move, etc.) and fill your Shopify store with good stuff from there. Then start putting the higher end stuff from your Direct Sales Company in with these other products - this is a form of compounding. Since most Aliexpress products can be drop shipped to the customer directly once the order processes through your store you can get momentum that way. I assume your direct sales company also offers drop shipping once products are ordered through your store as well. By putting them together you create a more robust shopping experience while accounting for buyer's intent changes. People will often follow a link to a cool item, but then change their mind once in the store. If you have a lot of other items, across mass market price ranges of $10 to $80 then you have a better chance at having them buy some...

Can I sell products on Facebook? As you see from our training across multiple products we place a tremendous amount of emphasis on Facebook. Facebook has over 1 billion people + with the audience insights you can drill down to find audiences that fit what you are offering. Roger is a master at Facebook - and there is alot to learn. You can actually sell products on Facebook - by linking them to your ecommerce website (such as Etsy and/or Shopify and/or your own website). You can place a YouTube link as well in Facebook. Again, Facebook is about finding the audience and directing them to where ever you want to them to go
Go to ad creation and then choose an advertising objective. Type in or select from the drop-down what you want to advertise. For example, if you chose the Clicks to Website objective, you'll type in the URL that you want people to go to. Click Continue. https://www.facebook.com/business/help/132037906870538
Overall you want to find a profitable niche and focus. You seem to have many unrelated niches, so my first suggestion would be to use Amazon.com even to check what is selling in those niches. For example, you can go here http://www.amazon.com/Best-Sellers/zgbs and check the best selling items on Amazon. That can be a starting point for seeing what Amazon customers are buying - it can help you narrow down niche and product ideas. Then let's say you are set on selling a particular thing you found on Etsy and want to know if there is a market for it - again - go to the biggest online marketplace in the world (Amazon) and put a search term related to the item. For example, I put in "beer map" on Amazon and got these results: http://www.amazon.com/s/ref=sr_nr_p_72_0?fst=as%3Aoff&rh=i%3Aaps%2Ck%3Abeer+map%2Cp_72%3A2661618011&keywords=beer+map&ie=UTF8&qid=1464877750&rnid=2661617011 You can then filter results by how many star ratings they have (5 stars = good) and see which items have the most reviews (...
You definitely want a healthy mix of content on your Instagram account. Remember: Instagram is a community driven platform that likes to see you as part of what's going on rather than a shameless promoter. The more you can post interesting content that adds to the subject matter of your niche the more likes and follows you are going to get when people come to your page. That being said, you should only spend money on sending people to promotion posts, i.e. your product posts. When that traffic gets to you though, your credibility will increase 10x if you have a lot of other non-promotional or non-sales content. So the rule is generally this: for every 5 Instagram posts you do, 4 of them should be content and 1 of them should be promo/sales. This is also known as the 80/20 rule.
