I Tried To Become A Dropshipping Guru In 5 Days

Published on: December 8 2022 by Financial Wolf

Last week, I decided to try my hand at dropshipping. It's a popular way to make money online, and I wanted to see if I had what it takes to become a guru in just five days. Here's what happened.

Day 1:

- Researched the most popular products on AliExpress

- Set up a Shopify store

- Installed Oberlo to manage product imports

Day 2:

- Tried to optimize my store for SEO

- Made some basic social media accounts

- Reached out to influencers on Instagram

Day 3:

- Imported products into my store

- Tried to write compelling product descriptions

- Set up Google Analytics and Facebook Pixel

Day 4:

- Tried to run Facebook ads

- Tested out different ad creatives

- Monitored my ad spend

Day 5:

- Checked my sales

- Was disappointed to find no sales

- Decided to throw in the towel and accept that I am not a dropshipping guru

Dropshipping may seem like an easy way to make money, but it's harder than it looks. It takes time, effort, and skill to become successful at it. While I may not have become a guru in just five days, I learned a lot about the process and have a newfound respect for those who are successful at it.

I Tried To Become A Dropshipping Guru In 5 Days

For months, I have been trying to figure out the complicated world of Shopify dropshipping. Despite my efforts, I was losing hundreds of dollars daily on advertising with Instagram theme pages and Facebook ads. However, I came across a YouTube channel called Ecom King, which had free courses on Shopify dropshipping and print on demand.

Choosing a Guru:

After researching several Shopify gurus, including Hayden Bowles, Max Trubitsky, and Kevin David, who have been exposed by Ballerbusters for scamming their clients, I finally found Ecom King. I decided to learn from him and see if I could make a success in the e-commerce world.

Advertising Plan:

I chose a store called Enchanting Therapy and decided to advertise with Instagram influencers. Ecom King taught me to find influencers using cloudhq.com and to select those with real followers and engagement.


After sending out my video ad and ad copy to several Instagram theme pages, I closed seven deals. The promotions cost $140, and our goal was to sell three LED therapy masks for a total of $150 in revenue off of $40 in ad spend. Unfortunately, we got no sales from the first two promotions.

However, the five promotions that went live the next day led to a total revenue of $210. After subtracting the influencer costs of $140 and the product costs of $72.80, our total profit was slightly in the negative.

Shopify dropshipping is a skill that can take years to perfect. While I didn't make a profit in this challenge, I plan to continue building my store and perfecting my skills. Thank you for reading this article, and I hope it was informative for you.
