[Image: from_0_9k_in_17days.png]

This case study is mainly to encourage those who might be thinking of giving up. After trying to do a store for months and failing, I hired someone to do them for me, non the less she succeeded. Understanding what I was doing wrong was the problem. But I kept at it until about 17 days ago when I broke the code.

having someone do something for you and it succeeds, doesn't make you feel so nice, getting something done yourself and it succeed, that feeling is unbeatable. I have been very successful online with FB ads, I consult with some major companies in Africa and even manage their ads, I have had great success with Affiliate marketing with Clickbank,Amazon Niche sites, but drop-shipping wasn't just working. But it has finally worked.

This is my newest store, but as many of you might notice, I am totally blown away by the results.

The store has gotten 60% of the sales from social, 30% from organic search(Even though I did not do any SEO on it...which even shocks me the most) and the rest from referrals.

I have run a maximum of $250 in ads only, and done a lot more of manual organic sharing and the like. I am planning on scaling the ads to say $200 a day. 

Lessons learned, until your pixel is properly seasoned, organic traffic converts a lot better than FB. we were getting a 4.9% conversion before starting on FB traffic, and that number reduced to 1.8%

2-Follow the simple steps. a) Have the right mindset(Spend more time on products and marketing, than you spend on anything else; Don't give in, keep trying until you succeed) 

b) Create a store and brand it

c)Pick a market/Niche and get at least 10 products day to it. If you do this consistently for a month, that will be 300 products! am sure a lot has already been said about product picking and selection, unless you need my own criteria, I will leave it at that,

d)Market Market Market everything, if you dont have money for facebook ads, you will pay with your time. Here is what my schedule looked like

-Youtube (Unlisted Method) for product review
-Twitter + IFTT
-FB Groups
-FB Ads and IG Shoutouts
-IFTT + Addmefast


Hope this encourages you to not give up. I am doing this from Uganda, with all limitations available. So if I can, then you can!
nice one mencer!
Thanks man...I want to start a journey and take it from scratch to $20k+ in less than 30days
nice case study.... can you share what's youtube unlisted method . Can fb ads used with cpa with decent roi?
this is what you need:
1. an affiliate video (l don't like to share is since it's from a converting niche) nevermind ...
2. affiliate link directly related to the video, high search volume keyword to target large audience
3. access to fast retention youtube real human views (since i don't want to promote my panel, i will not say anymore about the traffic sources...)
4. well that's all for niow

this is what you do:
1.upload the video in unlisted mode (you must set it BEFORE you upload) the video should not be public NOT even for a second !
2. add the affiliate link in the description, now the high search volume term you choose to target put as the title of the video and inside the description (below the link) also addit in the tags as a single tag
3. start the fast traffic (~20K-30K per 24 hours) it's shouldn't cost much now (around $20 for 50K views)
the traffic retention MUST be at least 75% from your video, so if it's a 2 min video get 90s retention views (note: do not use mobile botted views, it has to be real human views)
4. after 48 hours (or 50K) go to youtube and change the video status from UNLISTED to PUBLIC, and hold on
$0-9,500 in 17 days with only $250 ad how to poses/way ?

So, I have been off for the past few weeks, and here was the problem..

1-When I shared my videos, some heartless human beings went online and decided to spam my store  (I didn't know that my store url was visible) so they went ahead and used stolen credit cards, which pushed the store sales to about 35k, but then I started getting chargebacks, which made me lose my stripe account etc.
LESSON #1: No matter how excited, share only what you can, if people don't believe, don't give a SHIT, after all, none of them will help you when you are sleeping hungry and have to start all over again!

2- I have had to register a new Stripe account, because even my other stores were affected as this was my main stripe account. But as it's said, when you know how to do something, it will always come around. And guess what, in an even shorter time, I have made more money...!!!
LESSON #2: Don't copy, learn the one can take that away from you. But someone can take away copied work...I know FB ads, I know how create winning stores, I know the process A-Z! And nothing can change about one can take matter how many times I go down.

3- In journeys like this, you are going to win and you are going to lose at times. Loss might come in different forms, losing your merchant account (I even tried to get 2checkout, and they rejected me 3 times) Losing doesn't come only through failed stores, it can come in all other forms. Whats important is to never give up. Imagine for 2 weeks plus, I could not process payments, I was having loads of customers asking why I couldn't and what the problem was. But guess what, here I am, 3 weeks later making over $100k!
LESSON #3: Don't be afraid to lose, don't be afraid to be called a failure, all of us have our own lives to live and die, you are not accountable to anyone except yourslf first and foremost...the moment you are accountable to yourself, then you have to be accountable to a group..thats why you need a community to encourage you. You have no idea how much encouragement I got from some of the masterminds I am in and how that kept me going! Join a group for the rainy days.(THOSE INTERESTED IN JOINING MY FB GROUP, WHERE I WILL BE HELPING LOADS OF OTHERS, PM ME and I WILL  ADD YOU)

With that said, I think I have come to the end of this journey, I wanted to make $100k, and I have made it in less than 90days! I will keep this thread alive to answer to questions and help those starting out, but I am going to start another journey of taking a dead store (One that was profitable about 9months ago, but hasn't made any sales since then, to life again! And I will detail everything I am doing with it.

Thanks for sharing. I'm trying it now, Fingercross Smile)). I wish you could be my mentor  welcome
