Chapter 1

Introduction

You daydream about building your first store for months. Maybe even years.

“I can do this. I can’t do this. No.”

“I CAN do this.”

And so you finally get started.

You sign-up for Shopify and start building your first store.

You install the Oberlo app and choose from an extensive selection of great products to your store.

And after a couple weeks, you hit the Publish button.

You did it!

You just launched your first business.

But a couple days pass and the sales don’t come.

Maybe you created a $5 Facebook ad, got 50 people visiting your store but no sales.

Or you asked an Instagram influencer to give you a shout-out only to find out their 100,000 followers were probably fake.

I know the feeling.

I’ve been there.

But I’ve also breathed that sigh of relief after getting my first sale.

I’ve felt the excitement from having the first $1000 day.

And I remember the feeling you get when someone bought your $100 3-product bundle.

That’s why I wrote this ebook.

To help you get the financial results you deserve.

To give you that feeling of excitement and accomplishment when you land your first sale.

This ebook isn’t for the faint of heart though. You’re not going to be able to finish it in a day.

And that’s totally okay.

You can pick and choose the sections that make the most sense for your business. And come back to finish the rest when you have more time.

I also want to be honest about some of the tactics in this ebook. Some of these marketing ideas will be things you’ve never heard of or thought about doing.

And others will be in your face obvious. You’ll probably give me an eye roll. I apologize in advance.

I wrote this book with beginners in mind but added a few intermediate and advanced tactics to keep things interesting and to level you up faster.

I visited thousands of online stores to give you the best examples. Most weren’t included, they just didn’t make the cut.

I chose to highlight brands who do things differently so you can see how to better serve your audience as you grow.

A lot of the online stores in this ebook take marketing to the next level.

I wanted you to see their stores for yourself to get you thinking like a million dollar store owner. Even if you’re currently a zero dollar store owner.

If you’re in a rush to get the good stuff in this ebook, check out the tips and expert sections for all the categories. You’ll find hidden gems in all of them and they can work well as a whole.

You’ve got everything you need know about making sales with dropshipping within these next sections.

By sharing my tactics with you, I’m investing in your success.

All I ask is that you do whatever it takes to make your dreams come true.

Stick it out during the lows. And help others succeed during the highs.

Happy reading!

    Am overwhelmed with so much infos to comprehend and which way to target first. I really need to know if the Oberlo or Shopify has already built website the automatically upload stores into ur website account or how does it work to be sure if this is what I really need.

  • It’s wonderful to read all the success stories, but when comes down to make a sales it’s all different story.
    In my opium it’s very difficult to sale something if you are not on first page and first 3 or 4 slot of Google, Bing or Yahoo. You got to be lucky to make a sale if you are on page Two to ten. When people search the web what they see on first page are the big corporation that they spend a lot of money to be there. So your business or mine is none existent.
