Don't Hire A Shopify Mentor Until You See This
what is going on, guys? no, abreu. here again, back with another video, and today I'm gonna be toking about what you need to know before hiring a mentor and way, way before you leave. I want to say that I'm not gonna be saying things like make sure they're credible. you know, all that stuff is obvious. you know, obviously you want to hire a good mentor. obviously you want to make sure that they're not a scammer. I'm not going to be toking about those things in this video. what I'm gonna be toking about is you, because the difference between you hiring a mentor and seeing results, in the difference between you hiring the mentor and not getting any results, only a portion of it is the mentor. you know they. they're there to give you the knowledge, the resources to do what you need to do, but nobody is gonna force you to do what you need to do. okay. so if your mentor tells you, like, if you're doing door-to-door sales and your mentor tells you, oh, like you need to go knock on 300 doors tomorrow and you do not do it, it is not the mentors fault if you don't see the results that you're looking for. same thing goes for e-commerce, Facebook Ads, Instagram, influencers- whatever you're hiring a mentor, for you need to listen to them, because you cannot hire a mentor and then have your mindset be messed up. it's not about the information that I give you, okay, it's not about that. it's about what you do with that information. I've told people- countless, you know thousands of times- ways that they can go out and start making 10, 20, 30, 50 K a month for themselves, and only maybe like 20 of them have actually gone off and done that, and those are the people that you see get crazy results, and the reason is only a portion because of me. I'm here to open up those doors. I'm here to teach you how, but I can't force you to do the work that you need to do. I can't force you to test, you know, six products every other day in order to take your business from 100 km month to 200 km unthe. I can't force you to do those things. you need to. you need to build the skill to take in information and then put out action. it's not like it's not something that is very difficult, but coming from you know, being in school, in college and all your at your job and all this, it's very easy just to get confused because you know they teach you stuff and then they give you a test and that's it. but in the real world, in business, if I teach you something or if a mentor teaches you something, you need to actually do it, like there's no quiz. I'm not gonna ask you a second time. if you understand it. you know you have to go out there and just figure it out, because I'm here to give you the resources, but I'm not here to hold your hand and move your fingers, to type away at the keyboard and go find some products and you know, build your list and get the videos made and you know, start the ads, launch three products a week, whatever. I'm not here to do that. I'm here to teach you how to do those things and you need to run off and do that. I had a guy- Connor- I don't know how to pronounce his last name, but he was in my inner circle group chat the other day and he said that you can buy all the courses in the world that you want, you can buy all the mentorship in the world that you want, but the one thing that is gonna make you successful is you, it's the action that you take, it's the mindset that you have. that's what really matters. and this. this just plays over and over and over again. you hear people calling courses- there are certain types of courses a scam. but then over here on the right side or on the right side, you have people who are making tons of money just off of the information in that course. it's because these people didn't do like. they might say that they did, but every time they wake up in the morning and every time they go to sleep they know they didn't and that's why they don't have the results. the people over here to the right or chillin, like they, they know how to take in information and then put out action and actually go and get results. it's a completely different mindset. it's just called like, just do it, like that's what I like to call it, where it's just like I don't even really educate myself before doing something anymore. I just go out and do it and I figure things out as I go and I educate myself as I go. I think, take, I think if you give one person a course and you say, watch this course and then go out into the world, and then you give another person, just say, go out into the world, and they actually do that. I think that eventually they're both gonna have the same results and you know it's arguable which will progress quicker. but you know, the guy with the course is gonna take longer to get to the action because he has to watch the course first, and the guy over here is just gonna learn by repetitiveness: just going out there and doing it and doing it and doing it. you're gonna learn either wave, okay. so, and this is why it's smart to get a course, because you don't have to learn by repetitiveness. you can learn from somebody else's repetitiveness, but it has to be mixed with that high level of action, because if it's not, then you're just taking in information and keeping it in and then eventually you just forget about it and it's all a big waste of time and money. you need to take in that information and put it out. but yeah, that's pretty much all that I wanted to say. this is exactly what you need to know before hiring a mentor. if you got good value out of this, subscribe.

How to find a mentor - the RIGHT way
what's up, you guys? it's Graham here. so this is probably one of the most important topics that I'm going to be discussing so far, and it's about mentoring, and I feel like so many people are so caught up right now and try to find a mentor. they think that a mentor is going to be the end-all, be-all of life and success and business and if they feel like they need a mentor first and then they can go and start doing things that they really want to do, versus just doing those things now and then finding a mentor, naturally as they go along. now, the common theme with all of the mentors that I've had is that I didn't go up to them and I didn't ask: hey, will you be my mentor, will you teach me? I have to say, you guys, that is one of the most common questions I get from everybody is: Graham, will you mentor me, Graham, will you teach me? and that's probably one of the worst ways to go about it and I'll be completely honest with you: I can't ever see that working. first of all, it tells me nothing about you. it tells me nothing about how motivated you are, how passionate you are, ineligible you are, same with asking me questions that you could find off Google and a search. it's different to ask my opinion on something. then ask me something that you can Google for two seconds and find the answer of. it shows me that you've done no research whatsoever about what you want to do. you don't have the capacity to find answers on your own and be resourceful. if someone's going to teach you something, they want to know that you're 100% in it, you're really dedicated, that you're enthusiastik, that you're passionate, and then you bring something to the table, not just trying to take something. you always had to offer something in return. I've always come in with something that I've offered them, which is either my enthusiasm, my passion might drive my focus. there have been a multitude of things that have come into the table that can benefit everybody, and it's not just like me going up with somebody asking: will you mentor me? like that's such a bad question. um, same with going up to somebody and asking them like a very generic question that just you can't answer, like like another one I get is: like Graham, like I want it, I want to make a million dollars. how can I make a million dollars, please help? and that's honestly, that's such a generic question, it's like I can't answer that you guys for real. it's like there are a million ways to make a million dollars. you need to go into it asking very specific questions. so here's my recommendation with how to find a mentor. first off, you need to start on your own path. you need to do things already. you don't need to wait around for a men to come and pick you up and swoop you up and then bring you to success. you need to be on that path already. so, step number one: be on that path, do your own research and start as if you already have a mentor. just start. start right now. start doing your research, start doing whatever you want to do and I think, naturally and organically, people are going to see your passion. they're going to see what you have to bring to the table and they're naturally going to want to help you out. successful people usually aren't the type to be like trying to hoard all their information to afford everything that they have. every successful person that I've seen personally has been some of the most giving people you would ever imagine. I mean, they're the most generous people in terms of what they have to offer. and a mentor, by the way, is less about giving you step-by-step guides about how to get somewhere, but they're more about providing experience and wisdom and knowledge and their opinion. because here's the biggest difference from what I see from a lot of the comments I get and from the comments I get from people who are already on the path. the comments I get from people in the first mentality of like, will you mentor me, will you teach me? they ask me questions that they can find out very easily with a Google search. now, don't disrespect to that. these are all great questions, but it tells me that you really haven't taken the time to do any research whatsoever. the questions that I get from people that I know are really going to do well, or very specific, and they're very opinionated. it's less about Graham- what type of rent can I get to San Bernadino- but more about Graham: why did you buy in San Bernardino versus this area? what is your experience? renting with a tenant in San Bernardino versus renting to a tenant in Los Angeles? how do you notike? there's more demand in that price point than this price point. there are very opinionated questions and that's where my expertise comes in. it's not telling you the average price per square foot of San Bernadino, because you could find that on your own, like you need to do some research, and that's what a mentor, my opinion, really has to offer. it's about facts and it's more about opinions and experience and knowledge and wisdom that they have to bring to the table, and I don't think a mentor is going to be someone again to swoop you up and take you to success and like, save you necessarily, and they're not going to give you the step by step by step advice getting exactly what you want. you need to already be on this path. you need to already be doing exactly what you want to do and usually, naturally and organically, things happen and things work in your favor from people who see you already on that path and want to help you succeed, and you don't need that as an excuse to not do something. just just go and do it anyway. so my advice for finding a mentor is not to wait around to find a mentor. it's just to go and do it. if you want to be in real estate, go ahead and get your real estate license. go ahead and start on that path. go ahead and make things happen for yourself and not wait for someone to come around. we're not wait for this moment to happen. it's going to change your life. just go and do it anyway. in each one of my circumstances of finding a mentor, I have never once thought I would find a mentor. I didn't even that, wasn't even crossing my radar. it just happened naturally. so in each of the circumstances, it was not me going up asking for something, it was me going up showing my enthusiasm and it's just happening naturally and organically. there are also a lot of great organizations online for you to get involved in. chances are, no matter what you're doing, there's an online forum that you can join, be a part of and exchange ideas and interests and activities. like for all my financial interests and stuff like that. I go on a forum on reddit- it's called financial independence and I spend hours there and I like answer comments, I read comments and I just become a part of this community. it's not necessarily like I have one mentor, but I'm learning from the collective group as a whole and that's what's so powerful about the Internet is that chances are. no matter what you're into, you can find a mentor from that and you can learn from a multitude of people, even from you watching this video. chances are. there are YouTube videos, exactly what you want to do. so it's about taking the advice that you're able to learn on your own. do the research on your own, start this on your own and you're just naturally going to beat people. we're going to want to see you succeed and they're going to want to help you out. so, as always, you guys, I really hope this video helps. I really appreciate you watching and, again, it's less about going up to somebody asking: will you be my mentor, and more about just doing it, regardless of whether you have a mentor or not- and chances are, a mentor will come into your life- and, naturally, it's less about asking for something and more about just doing it and having someone see you, naturally, on their own accord, and helping you out. thank you so much for watching my videos. thank you so much for everybody that subscribed. if you- if you have it already, by the way- subscribe. like the video. if you enjoy it. comment down below. let me know your thoughts. let me know your th.

How mentors can CHANGE your life!
just over one year into my business, I got an offer for 1.5 million dollars to sell it. it would have been life-changing money. I sat there and I was looking at the offer and I didn't know what to do. so I called one of my mentors. I went to a local coffee shop with him and he toked me through it and he asked: why do I want to sell? and the truth is I was just scared. as soon as I told him that. he looked me dead in the eye and he said that fear never goes away. now this is someone that has a net worth of over 300 million dollars. his advice then took me down a path where I really learned that the business had so much potential and I was just trying to cash out way too early. fast forward three years and I was making 1.5 million dollars profit a month. this is the power of mentors. in this video, we're going to go through how to find a mentor, what makes a good Mentor and even the Dark Side of mentorship. so what makes a good Mentor? I think there are two main things. the first thing is: are they the right size? and what I mean by that is: are they too far progressed that they can't actually communicate properly and understand the challenges you're going through. this also makes them far easy you to find. if you don't need a multi-billionaire to support you in your journey, if you haven't got your first ever set out within your business, you're only looking for someone that has gotten twenty thousand dollars in sales for them. they're going to be able to really communicate the challenges that you're facing at that time to support you in your journey, and I think this is why our e-commerce mentorship is so, so good. we've got so many people that are starting out. and then there's so many people that are one or two years of decent sales and they're just teaching things like basic Shopify things, those things that you don't know how to ask the question. but people have just been through the experience. and that brings me to my next Point around what makes a good Mentor. they need the right experience. now there are two main forms of experience. there's theorized experience and there's applied experience. there is knowledge. they might be a business lecturer, they might understand business and have read a bunch of books. that is not as good as applied knowledge. you want someone that has walked the walk, that faces all the challenges, that has been in emotional situations that they've need to navigate, because that's really what you're going to need when you're in the trenches. chances are you're going to take mentors in different parts of your life, for example, my dad. when I have emotionally charged subjects with staff or something like that, I go to him. he's amazing at that. for really complex business strategy decisions, I would go to someone like Toby Pierce. for anything marketing or brand related, I'll go to Greta Van Real. these people all are mentors to me in their own designated field. you want someone that has applied knowledge and has succeeded in what challenge you are facing. you wouldn't go to a billionaire that's had 15 divorces and ask them about marriage and how to support your marriage. so how do you find a mentor? mentorships are very much like friendships and you can't just walk up to some random on the street and say, hey, do you want to be friends? we could, I guess, but I'm not sure how. it's a strike rate. one of my favorite stories about mentorship is Warren Buffett and Benjamin Graham. Benjamin Graham right, the intelligent investor, one of the best investment books ever written. Warren Buffett had read so many investment books at that point and nothing reconciled with him as much as the intelligent investor, but went to the University of Columbia web Benjamin Graham was teaching at the time- just to learn from Graham. Warren Buffett even offered to work for Benjamin Graham for free and Graham replied: you're overpriced, which is so, so true person that is getting mentor to get so much value- and I think this comes to my first thing about how to get a mentor- that you can just actually work for one. whether that's working for someone for free, which is always controversial, people are saying: never undervalue yourself. truth is, when you're just getting started, you're not worth anything and that's a hard truth to learn. but you will become something incredible if you learn from the best, whether it's a proper salary and you're properly employed. just make sure you avoid the rat race. don't get stuck and lose your entrepreneurial Spirit. or you're just Consulting for someone doing some side work with the understanding that this person is going to teach you. make sure they don't take advantage of you. make sure they actually give you knowledge and value. the second way you can find a mentor is doing some cold Outreach or trying to get an introduction to someone. people like myself get this request so much so you need to be able to stand out. I've got a few ways of doing that. first of all, achieve something really cool. it could just be that you've got a new viral hack for tiktok, or you've just done something that they don't don't know how to do. once you do that, people like myself are just generally curious and they really want to meet people like that and learn how they did it. mentorship is generally a two-way relationship. people provide value, even if it's disproportionate around who gives more value, it doesn't really matter. it's just fun to have like-minded people and by succeeding in something you can create that connection that you are like-minded. the other tiknique that I really like is say you're going to do something and then follow back in six to 12 months or however long that it actually takes to achieve, and just follow through, because if there's one thing that mentors hate, it's that their lessons and their time goes to waste. mentors genuinely do want to help people, but when they see people not helping themselves, it just completely breaks the relationship. show that you're a man or woman of your word, that you can achieve something and what you want to achieve you get, and people are much more likely to invest the time into working with you if you're still really struggling and you have a bit of a budget, maybe you've got a successful business. you can jump on a call on something like. Mentor pass is a new service that connects mentors with people. I'll leave a link for Mentor past. they are a good service and I love no code Kenny on on Twitter. he's great. the final thing I will sign off with is: Beware of the dark side of mentorship. there's a few things that come to mind. first of all, courses can be repackaged information that are predatory to new entrepreneurs. if it's repackaged, it's not a mentorship. if it's just a PDF and there's no one-on-one support for a long period of time, as much as you kind of need them, it could be a waste of money. so just be aware of that. the second thing is, while mentors are smart, they don't know everything. I have taken my mentors advice blindly, without using my own Intuition or creating a second opinion around the subject matter, and I've got in a lot of trouble. you know more about your business, hopefully, than your mentors, so make sure you apply your own judgment. don't follow them blindly, and this is the benefit of just having a wide array of smart people that can help your longer Journey. the final thing I will say is: books could be your mentors as well. they're cheap, they're affordable. you can even get mentors that have passed away, like Steve Jobs. so don't sleep on books. enjoy reading if you want to join our mentorship program. we've got a Discord Community. we're not trying to make money off it. we just want to connect people that are like-minded in the same Journey, facing the challenges. we've also got the YouTube live where you can connect with me as well, and we will just go through websites. we'll just break things down and face any challenge together, so don't forget to like And subscribe. thanks, [Applause].

$0-$16,000 In 30 Days Dropshipping With NO MONEY (Step-By-Step)
this is exactly how i made sixteen thousand dollars my first month online. i'm gonna be going over exactly how i was making thousands of dollars in my first month online as a total beginner through a method you might know of, which is shopify drop shipping. so make sure you guys leave a like and subscribe to this channel and let's get into how i did it. so if you have no idea what shopify drop shipping is, you essentially create an online website, you add products to your store and then advertise your store and eventually make tons of money in the process. and so during this time, i was 17 years old and i was scrolling on tiktok. i found out people were literally posting tiktoks about their products and they were getting millions of views, which would end up getting them thousands of dollars in sales. and, honestly, after seeing so many people get rich off of tiktok drop shipping, i knew i had to hop on the wave. i stumbled across this tiktok page called my soul lift, and this guy's second video on tiktok got 36 million views, and pretty much what he was selling were these soul lifts that you put in your shoes to make you look taller, and me, being five eight- i'm a lot shorter than most of my friends that are six foot six foot three and you know, if you're short, like five five or five six, compared to other guys, you're going to feel insecure. so i knew there was a market for this product. a lot of shorter guys would want this product, especially if they're gonna go on dates, go to prom or whatever it is. i see a lot of short people actually buying this product and i knew i had to do the same exact thing he was doing, because clearly he was getting a lot of views and he was getting a lot of followers during this tiktok. now this guy was selling this product for 20, but i knew there was drop shipping suppliers like zen, dropper, alibaba, and i knew i could get this product for way cheaper from those platforms. and since i knew i could get this product for way cheaper, it was time to create my own website and start selling this product so i could start making some money. now the first thing you want to do once you found your product is you want to go on shopifycom and create your 14 day free trial, and once you created your free trial, you can use either xendrop or oberlo to import the products you found for way cheaper and start customizing your store now. my number one advice for every single person that's creating a shopify store is: take inspiration from people that are already selling your product, and in my case, this guy's soul lift website is very, very simple. you do not want to over complicate your website. you want to have no more than three main colors, as this example. he's using red, black and white, nothing else. you don't want to have 10 different colors on your website makes it really hard for a customer to concentrate on what your brand is really about. you don't want to have long descriptions. you want to have videos and gifts in your product descriptions. customers are not there to read descriptions. they're there to look at what the product is doing and you don't want to bore them out with long descriptions and paragraphs because, at the end of the day, you want them to check out. you don't want them to keep reading and get bored of your website. and if you guys are looking for a complete tutorial on how to start a drop shipping store and create a website from scratch, i'll go ahead and link up a really good tutorial up here. so make sure you guys watch that if you don't know what you're doing. and now let's get into the part on where we advertise this product. so, when it comes to marketing the product, you want to go ahead and make two social media pages, and the most important platforms, in my opinion, when you start off, are tik-tok and instagram. other platforms like facebook, pinterest and youtube come later, after you start making some money, but definitely focus on those two in the beginning. if we go ahead and look at this guy's instagram page, it's very, very simple. you know. you don't want to go crazy and buy a lot of followers on instagram. you can honestly buy 500 followers on buzzoid. it's a very cheap website to buy instagram followers just to give you some credibility. on tiktok, you do not want to buy followers because it is going to affect the algorithm. but instagram, go ahead and buy 500 followers just for that boost of credibility. and when it comes to building the website, when it comes to creating the social media pages, just want to take inspiration from your competitors and people who are already making money and getting views from your product and see how the descriptions are, how their profile picture is, and just take inspiration because you want to do what's already working and that's the best way you're going to start making money, especially when it comes to drop shipping. so once you found your product, you created the website, you started your social media pages. it's now time to order the product so you can actually start making tiktoks off of it. tik tok icon. they say: what are the? what are the numbers? now, the one thing i do recommend is order your product from amazon. you can literally look up the same exact product. you can get an unbranded one with no logo on amazon so you can actually start making videos off of it and amazon prime it so it comes in one to two days. so once your product arrives, you can finally start making tiktoks. finally, and the way you want to do it is recreate their viral tiktoks, and you want to keep doing it every single day and be consistent. no, it doesn't matter if you post three of the same videos that went viral, because with tiktok, it's all about making sure you know you're doing something that's already working and that's already went viral. don't try to make original ideas and make your own tiktoks. for the first few weeks of testing a product, want to recreate viral videos exactly how they work. the only thing you have to do when recreating a viral video is: try to have better lighting, try to have better quality, but other than that, recreate the video exactly how you saw it, because if it got millions of views, you don't want to change up anything, whether it was the background or anything like that. you want to recreate the video exactly how you saw it. so once you start posting on tiktok, i recommend posting three times a day, every single day. the times that work for me around 3 pm to 5 pm eastern. obviously, everyone is different. you have to test out different times. those are what worked for me. do not miss a single day of posting, because if you miss a day you can really screw up the algorithm. so definitely i don't recommend doing that now. if you're in a different country- you're not in the us, you know. if you're in europe or italy or anywhere like that- try to recreate those tiktoks, but just do them in your own language, because you don't have to try and get to a us algorithm. you can literally try and get in your country's algorithm and trying to see if that works. but once you're making those tik toks, you know you're testing the product. repost everything on instagram reels and be consistent on instagram and be consistent on tiktok and you have to make sure you're doing this every single day to see if the product is gonna make you a lot of money. now remember you can't have a link in the bio of your tiktok page until you have a thousand followers, so that first week you have to be trying to get a viral video and push out your content and that will eventually get you a thousand followers. if the first few weeks you can't get a thousand followers, then you have to look at your product or the content you're making, because one of the things you're doing wrong and getting a thousand followers is not that hard if you have a good product and if you're recreating viral content and guys, this is truly the five step process on how i was able to make thousands of dollars my first month online without spending any money on ads. in terms of drop shipping, this is very, very doable, especially i
Why 99% Of Shopify Dropshipping Gurus Are FAKE! (Dropshipping Exposed)
hey, how's it going? everyone, my name is michael and today we're going to tok about why 99 of these shopify drop shipping gurus are fake. now, this isn't my typical videos i make, but i wanted to make this because it's an important topic to tok about, because so many people watch these gurus and think they can get rich like them, but the sad reality is most people won't. i do make videos on store and conversion rate optimization, which a lot of people don't know or they don't watch these videos about. so if you want to know how to increase your conversion rates, how to get more sales without spending more money on ads, and how to actually create a high converting store, then i would suggest to subscribe to my channel. now. you might be asking: why are they fake? well, here's why so many of them like to sell the lifestyle of becoming successful and rich in ecommerce to drop shipping that you don't need to work a 9 to 5 job. but in reality, 95 to 99 percent of the people who get into drop shipping fail. most of these group channels only focus on finding winning products or facebook ads, and not the store side of things. to actually create a high converting store, you don't need to become a facebook ads expert to get sales or to scale. so if you've been running ads for a while, then chances are you're actually decent at ads, most of them. they make their money from selling courses and and mentorships, not drop shipping itself. they also never tok about, or very little about, store optimization and how to actually get more sales without spending more money on ads. that's what we all want to do. and, lastly, they show their followers how to create typical aliexpress dropship stores that bring no value to customers. and yes, they might give some good value here and there, but i'm not gonna lie. i bought a course a few years ago from someone and when sales were down turned out, i lost a thousand dollars and my store looked like the typical aliexpress garbage store. now that i think about now, here's two examples from guru: showing off how easy it is and that you can be easily making thousands of dollars, and showing the lifestyle. it's not that easy. people you can see well as drop shipping: okay, that's good, all right, fine. trending products: that will cost, that's good. running facebook ads: this is so easy. getting social proof: okay, okay, sell the product for a higher cost. that's what every business tries to do and bam yeah, i can make four hundred and fifty thousand dollars. that see that easy. and now we got another one: finding training, winning products, build a store, build a store, run some facebook ads- and that can be easily making three hundred thousand dollars in eight months and work whatever. i mean, come on people, this is garbage. and here's a person you might have seen before trying to sell people a pre-built shopify store for 17 dollars. i think, do you, do you really think you can succeed with a 17 store? come on. and of course, he's showing off the lifestyle at a rented house in in the hollywood hills. i mean, i can rent the same house on airbnb and do the same thing. it's not that hard. now here's a popular ecom king. so many people love him, but i'm not sure why. pretty much all of his videos are about winning products and facebook ads. i'm not seeing any content on the main reason why people fail in drop shipping, which is the source side of things. like i said, you don't have to become a facebook ads expert to get sales. and another thing is: pretty much any product can be a winning product, but that's for another video. here's another popular guru: vrm ecom, same problem. like most of these, most of these crews, they only tok about facebook ads and winning products. you can see that they have that. he has a first successful shopify store, but if you actually watch the video, he makes the store look like the typical dropship store, which is not good. in his latest video he toks about the top five problems that cause storage to fail. so let's check it out. in the video he toks about weak products, about ads, shipping and maybe supplier issues, which is important- but and he also toks about getting giving up, nothing about store optimization or making a high converting store, which is key. and then finally, finally, we have ac hampton. people love him because he's friendly, but the same exact story like before, his content is only about facebook ads and winning products. most people are already good at getting traffic to their store, but not converting customers to purchase on the store itself. actually, i actually looked at some of the comments sections in his videos and saw this lady ask him a great question: that she's getting traffic but no sales. of course he replied, but didn't even take five to ten minutes of his day to see the store and give her some tips. he just redirects her to message him and maybe sell her his courser mentorship. and the funny thing is i joined his facebook group to see if i can help people, like i do in a lot of these groups, but it came to me that people aren't getting the actual help they need. for example, here's another person from his group saying he's getting traction to his store but seeing a lot of abandoned checkouts. he even links to his store, which is good, but i looked at the comments to see no actual real advice or suggestions to stop the abandoned checkouts. so you can see, i also commented redirect into one of my videos because i saw he was missing a lot of key information on his product pages that can cause abandoned car and checkout issues. and here's another so-called drop shipping guru that he reviewed his subscriber stores, which is nice, but he only bases the stores off for simple things, not the buying process to actually get the sales, but he just says the logo, the colors, images, description and reviews and then you start to wonder why so many people fail at drop shipping, because all these gurus teaches nonsense to to people. i actually was toking to someone yesterday that was having a lot of abandoned carts and gave them a lot of suggestions for the product page because it was a total mess. so i asked him if he watched any video on how to set up a product page and he told me ecom, ecom kong. he even admitted that he didn't realize that econ kong gave him so many errors. after my review- and here's another convo i had with someone saying they got f'ed by a fake gurus and they listened to their advice- now you see his- he said his sales exploded after taking my advice and should suggestions that you can see at the top. so what now? well, i would take what these channels say and think about if it actually makes sense. you can watch my videos on soaring conversion rate optimization, which i gave a lot of free value, and i'm not selling anything to people, and you can still make money from drop shipping in 2021, but it's not that easy. how, how it used to be, and that's pretty much it for this video. if you want me need to make more of uh videos on store optimization and how to make more sales without spending more money, please like and subscribe. it really helps the channel to grow so more people can get recommended to them. thank you for watching.
I Tried The ECOM KING's Dropshipping Course and this happened
so for the past three months, i've been trying to find my first drop shipping winning product and during this time, i built over 10 different websites in so many different niches and i got a few sales here and there. i was never able to make a profit. you suck. i've watched so many different youtube tutorials and implemented so many different strategies. so far nothing has seemed to work. so i just finished watching the ecom kings nine hour drop shipping course. this is the only video that you need to be watching in 2022 if you want to start a successful shopify drop shipping business period. there's no other video out there. this is gonna be better than any paid course that gurus are selling you from a thousand dollars. so what i'm going to do right now is i'm following the ecom kings course to create branded drop shipping websites. so to find my product, i'm going to be using the strategies from the free course, which are, first, to look on tiktok and search for tiktok made me buy it- amazon finds and all that. the second method was to go to the tiktok creative center, choose conversions and then look through those ads. the third method is to use paid platforms like big stuff to speed up the process. okay. so i found my products. it took me about eight hours total. i ended up finishing it the next day and i found three products for each of the three different research methods. so i ended up going with the 720 degree forces. so right now i'm going to follow the website building portion of the course, build my website and then get back to you. so now my website is finally done. it took me about four days- i'm not going to lie- to go out. usually i take about one, two days to make my website, but i really wanted to put a lot of effort into this one. i followed the ecom kings course as closely as i could. i added some quantity breaks. they get the discounts. they buy three or they buy five. so i'm trying to increase my average order value. i added some lifestyle images. choose between two modes- that was basically a feature. so i just showed the features and the benefits and then i showed how to install it. i took the pictures from aliexpress and then i customized them to look more branded. so i'm trying to make the store look as branded as possible. that's why it took a lot longer. and then you have the before you buy and then have the faqs. here we have the money back guarantee to build trust and make the customer more willing to make a purchase on my store, and then i have the reviews. so right now i'm going to try and get three videos on tiktok to use as ads and i'm going to run five different ad sets at twenty dollars a day until and spend a total of hundred dollars in one day and then after that i'll update you only one sale. so it's been about four days since i ran the ads on the first day the whole day, nothing happened. the ads didn't spend anything. on the next day, like early in the morning, i got about 50 visitors and i got one sale. so at that point my conversion rate was about two percent. so that made me feel like i actually found a winner. so i let the ad run for the whole day and unfortunately i didn't get any more sales after that and by the time i reached 150 visitors the ads had spent about 70 dollars, and usually what i do is i let the ads run completely and not make any changes. but the course gave me some criteria to follow, which was that if ad set had spent more than half the profit i make per sale and the cost per click is above one dollar, i would need to cut that ad set. so i did that and i kept cutting and i kept cutting adsense and i realized that all the ad sets were above one percent cost per click. my cpms were crazy high and, yeah, it wasn't looking good. i went back to tiktok and tried to find different clips and then edited it together to create my own ads which i thought were more like tik-toking because i thought maybe the ads were the problem. so i created the ads and then i run them in a different campaign, hoping to see better cost per clicks. the new campaign spent about 20 more dollars and the cost per clicks were still crazy high and this time i didn't get a single sale to the site. so i feel like the problem is that tik tok is the wrong audience for this product. if they see it on their feed, they're just going to scroll over it because it's not that interesting of a product. it doesn't really have a wow factor and the problem it solves it's not really that crazy. i'm going to try and test one more product and spend another 100, but this time i'll make sure i go on tiktok and check to see how many views that product gets, to see if there's an actual demand on tiktok for that product. i feel like that will work better. [Music]- bad news. so i have ran. so i found a new product. i created a website, made my own ads, started running them and right now they've spent about twenty dollars and i haven't gotten a single ad to cut. so the product is this high frequency therapy wand which kind of shocks your face, basically, and that helps tighten it up. it also gets rid of wrinkles, fine lines and everything. just basically smooths out your face, tightens it up, makes you look nice and young and, honestly, i really thought this product was going to be it, because i'd read some books and watched a whole lot of youtube videos and i realized that what i normally don't do is think of a customer avatar, which is like: think of a specific person, what that person likes, dislikes and everything, and then build a store to target that specific person. so this time i created a store and i niched it down to target only women in their 30s above who are interested in stuff like skincare, toning your skin, tightening your skin, getting rid of fine lines and all those things. i actually tailored my websites to tok, specifically to those people, but surprisingly i've only gotten about six clicks and my cost per click is all above one dollar. everything is above one dollar. right now, i honestly don't know what to do. [Music] you.
