00:00:06 00:00:10 what's going on everyone hatin here
00:00:08 00:00:12 coming back at you with the brand new
00:00:10 00:00:13 video and in this one it's Q&A time if
00:00:12 00:00:15 you saw the video a few days back you
00:00:13 00:00:16 would know that I asked you guys to ask
00:00:15 00:00:18 me a ton of questions in the comments
00:00:16 00:00:20 and I got a lot so what we're gonna be
00:00:18 00:00:21 doing right now I'm going through I'm
00:00:20 00:00:22 gonna pick a ton of them I'm gonna throw
00:00:21 00:00:23 up screenshots as I'm answering them and
00:00:22 00:00:25 I'm just gonna go through and give you
00:00:23 00:00:27 some very very straightforward feedback
00:00:25 00:00:29 so let's see what you guys asked but
00:00:27 00:00:30 before we get into that make sure you're
00:00:29 00:00:31 part of the family by hitting that
00:00:30 00:00:33 nice-looking subscribe button down below
00:00:31 00:00:34 and drop lick on the video if you get
00:00:33 00:00:36 any value out of it and let's jump right
00:00:34 00:00:38 in how do you pay tax when self-employed
00:00:36 00:00:40 from drop shipping legally it's a great
00:00:38 00:00:41 question and I actually can't answer
00:00:40 00:00:43 that I'm meeting with the CPA next week
00:00:41 00:00:45 if you guys didn't normally 17 so this
00:00:43 00:00:46 will be my first year paying taxes I'm
00:00:45 00:00:47 still trying to figure all that out I
00:00:46 00:00:49 think I know enough but I'm definitely
00:00:47 00:00:50 ending with a CPA so that I know for
00:00:49 00:00:51 sure it's you do not want to get screwed
00:00:50 00:00:53 over when it comes to that but I would
00:00:51 00:00:54 not recommend taking tax advice from
00:00:53 00:00:56 someone on YouTube next question this is
00:00:54 00:00:57 a really good one from Ryan hold and how
00:00:56 00:00:59 cooked should your picks will be from
00:00:57 00:01:01 Instagram influencers before you
00:00:59 00:01:02 transition over to Facebook Ads now
00:01:01 00:01:04 there's something I tok about a lot
00:01:02 00:01:05 building pixel data with Instagram you
00:01:04 00:01:06 know through those shoutouts getting
00:01:05 00:01:08 sales and a ton of add to carts and all
00:01:06 00:01:10 that good stuff but at what point can
00:01:08 00:01:12 you effectively transition into Facebook
00:01:10 00:01:13 personally from my own testing as well
00:01:12 00:01:16 as you know some of my mentors are doing
00:01:13 00:01:18 really really well about 50 to 100 sales
00:01:16 00:01:19 in total on your store is the range that
00:01:18 00:01:21 should give you enough data to start
00:01:19 00:01:22 testing obviously if you have more
00:01:21 00:01:23 that's a lot better I have friends who
00:01:22 00:01:25 have like six seven hundred some even
00:01:23 00:01:26 over a thousand sales just from
00:01:25 00:01:28 Instagram and they haven't even started
00:01:26 00:01:29 with Facebook so do whatever you have to
00:01:28 00:01:31 do to start getting you know a couple
00:01:29 00:01:32 sales a day in that first month you know
00:01:31 00:01:33 get to about fifty or hundred sales and
00:01:32 00:01:35 you can start transitioning into
00:01:33 00:01:36 Facebook just here's the thing this is a
00:01:35 00:01:38 mistake I mean if you're not very good
00:01:36 00:01:40 with Facebook continue doing Instagram
00:01:38 00:01:41 influencers while you're testing
00:01:40 00:01:43 Facebook cuz it will take you some time
00:01:41 00:01:44 how should I do marketing for bracelets
00:01:43 00:01:46 for the holidays like Christmas
00:01:44 00:01:47 that's a great question as you guys know
00:01:46 00:01:48 I've mentioned it quarter four it's the
00:01:47 00:01:50 most profitable time of the year
00:01:48 00:01:51 everyone's buying stuff online it's
00:01:50 00:01:53 absolutely insane especially with all
00:01:51 00:01:54 the holidays that's the main reason so
00:01:53 00:01:56 if you're gonna try and hit people with
00:01:54 00:01:57 that aspect you know using it as a gift
00:01:56 00:01:59 I would recommend going from an
00:01:57 00:02:00 emotional standpoint you know said this
00:01:59 00:02:02 would make a great gift or only giving
00:02:00 00:02:04 away 100 use some scarcity honestly take
00:02:02 00:02:05 this with a grain of salt but I haven't
00:02:04 00:02:06 actually been doing it all the way last
00:02:05 00:02:08 year to this time of the year it's only
00:02:06 00:02:09 been like five or six months so I don't
00:02:08 00:02:11 fully know but it's definitely easier to
00:02:09 00:02:13 market your product so you just got a
00:02:11 00:02:14 free that depends on a lot of things
00:02:13 00:02:16 what type of bracelet all that so that's
00:02:14 00:02:17 more of like a unique question another
00:02:16 00:02:18 one from Ryan hold and what your
00:02:17 00:02:21 thoughts on clickfunnels birth shop flat
00:02:18 00:02:24 40 commerce personally I've never used
00:02:21 00:02:25 clickfunnels for Shopify I've used it a
00:02:24 00:02:27 lot for a ton of other stuff but never
00:02:25 00:02:29 for Shopify specifically I think that it
00:02:27 00:02:31 could be good for upsells but I just use
00:02:29 00:02:32 plugins inside of shop by itself for
00:02:31 00:02:34 that so if you want to test it go for it
00:02:32 00:02:35 everything I needs inside of Shopify at
00:02:34 00:02:37 least right now so I haven't really
00:02:35 00:02:39 branched out with that jeka roll FX
00:02:37 00:02:41 asked unrelated to e-commerce but what
00:02:39 00:02:43 do you think of post Malone's new song
00:02:41 00:02:44 Rockstar I think it's a damn good song
00:02:43 00:02:46 but I'm gonna hate it in about two weeks
00:02:44 00:02:48 cuz I'm definitely over playing it so
00:02:46 00:02:50 Kate Johnson asks what are all your
00:02:48 00:02:51 sources of income software affiliate
00:02:50 00:02:52 marketing e-commerce and social media
00:02:51 00:02:54 marketing are the main four there's a
00:02:52 00:02:55 couple little other things that branch
00:02:54 00:02:57 off of those that are interjected in
00:02:55 00:02:57 between those but those demand for by
00:02:57 00:02:59 far
00:02:57 00:03:01 Ethan Jay asks do you wait three days to
00:02:59 00:03:03 receive payment before fulfilling orders
00:03:01 00:03:04 [ __ ] no why would I wait cuz then it's
00:03:03 00:03:06 only gonna add three days on it the
00:03:04 00:03:07 shipping time if I already got the sale
00:03:06 00:03:08 I know I have the money coming in so
00:03:07 00:03:10 take the money out of my pocket I guess
00:03:08 00:03:11 in a fulfill the order with that
00:03:10 00:03:12 actually get that a lot and always
00:03:11 00:03:14 confused me like if you have the order
00:03:12 00:03:15 fulfill the [ __ ] order so you can
00:03:14 00:03:17 send on the product and get it going as
00:03:15 00:03:19 fast as possible now if you don't have
00:03:17 00:03:20 the money actually when I first started
00:03:19 00:03:21 something like this about two years ago
00:03:20 00:03:23 I had a mountain clothing line then
00:03:21 00:03:25 obviously it felt completely I didn't
00:03:23 00:03:26 even know anything about anything but I
00:03:25 00:03:28 told my dad like look when someone
00:03:26 00:03:29 orders a product I already have the
00:03:28 00:03:30 money but it takes a couple days you
00:03:29 00:03:32 know as a buffer period until I actually
00:03:30 00:03:33 get the money and I'm like dude give me
00:03:32 00:03:35 a thousand bucks throw it in account so
00:03:33 00:03:36 I can use that and then I'll just put
00:03:35 00:03:37 all the money back into that account
00:03:36 00:03:39 from the set so do whatever you have to
00:03:37 00:03:40 do be creative get the money because
00:03:39 00:03:41 once you already have the order you know
00:03:40 00:03:43 the money's coming in there's not much
00:03:41 00:03:45 it's gonna change from that Ethan Jay
00:03:43 00:03:47 also asks do you pay taxes when you're
00:03:45 00:03:49 under 18 and use your parents info on
00:03:47 00:03:50 Shopify payments yes you still to pay
00:03:49 00:03:52 taxes this will be my first year paying
00:03:50 00:03:53 taxes like I said meeting with the CPI
00:03:52 00:03:55 next week so I can't really give you
00:03:53 00:03:56 guys too much advice on that I don't
00:03:55 00:03:57 really want to you probably shouldn't
00:03:56 00:03:59 take advice on taxes from anyone on
00:03:57 00:04:00 YouTube for that matter go to a trusted
00:03:59 00:04:02 legal adviser that's what I would
00:04:00 00:04:04 recommend as for the info I use on
00:04:02 00:04:04 Shopify obviously if you're under ages
00:04:04 00:04:06 you
00:04:04 00:04:07 you have to someone over a teenage
00:04:06 00:04:08 verify that no it's not my parents I'm
00:04:07 00:04:10 going to get into how I structure my
00:04:08 00:04:11 businesses in a later video but that's
00:04:10 00:04:12 definitely a topic that we're not going
00:04:11 00:04:14 to cover in this video right now
00:04:12 00:04:15 Phillip Forrest asks what courses of
00:04:14 00:04:17 programs do you think of the most
00:04:15 00:04:18 valuable what your beginners look for
00:04:17 00:04:20 when picking a program to follow look
00:04:18 00:04:21 for people who have the results that
00:04:20 00:04:22 you're trying to create right the
00:04:21 00:04:24 fastest way to get from point A to point
00:04:22 00:04:26 B which point a being where you are
00:04:24 00:04:27 point B is where you want to go is in a
00:04:26 00:04:28 straight line and to get there in a
00:04:27 00:04:30 straight line all you have to do is
00:04:28 00:04:31 follow someone who's been through it and
00:04:30 00:04:33 not a straight line and so they know all
00:04:31 00:04:34 the mistakes you're gonna make to get
00:04:33 00:04:35 off that straight line so they can put
00:04:34 00:04:36 you on that line
00:04:35 00:04:38 now as for specific people on who I'd
00:04:36 00:04:39 recommend I've been through a lot of
00:04:38 00:04:41 courses I don't really recommend one
00:04:39 00:04:42 specific person I like to take courses
00:04:41 00:04:44 about specific dates that are on
00:04:42 00:04:46 facebook ads or Instagram on building a
00:04:44 00:04:47 store anything like that so I've been
00:04:46 00:04:49 through a lot I don't really recommend
00:04:47 00:04:50 I'm not going to one specific person my
00:04:49 00:04:52 boy Thaddeus which some of you probably
00:04:50 00:04:53 know him this course is really good my
00:04:52 00:04:55 boy Sebastian you know I've been through
00:04:53 00:04:56 those been through a lot of different
00:04:55 00:04:57 courses there's a lot of good content
00:04:56 00:04:59 out there a lot of fluff but just do
00:04:57 00:05:00 your research before you inside of one
00:04:59 00:05:02 crisp up at night asks are you looking
00:05:00 00:05:04 to build more Shopify stores or you just
00:05:02 00:05:05 managing your current stores as of right
00:05:04 00:05:06 now I'm just focused on scaling the ones
00:05:05 00:05:08 I have I'm not really looking to branch
00:05:06 00:05:09 out and that's exactly what I do with
00:05:08 00:05:11 all my businesses they're front-end
00:05:09 00:05:12 loaded for the first couple months you
00:05:11 00:05:13 got to really focus on and get them up
00:05:12 00:05:15 and then from there you can outsource
00:05:13 00:05:16 them and they're a lot more passive so
00:05:15 00:05:18 that's the route I'm taking with
00:05:16 00:05:20 ecommerce yes I am 100% without a doubt
00:05:18 00:05:20 going to open more stores in the future
00:05:20 00:05:23 but not right now
00:05:20 00:05:24 Jeremias asks where'd you get that peace
00:05:23 00:05:26 of heart behind you he's probably toked
00:05:24 00:05:28 about the ones using the background down
00:05:26 00:05:29 in my office got that on Amazon man
00:05:28 00:05:31 there's a ton of cool wall art like that
00:05:29 00:05:32 with multiple different panel sections
00:05:31 00:05:33 actually a few of them in my room like
00:05:32 00:05:35 it was like 50 bucks or something
00:05:33 00:05:38 definitely definitely something you
00:05:35 00:05:40 should get can I open successful Shopify
00:05:38 00:05:42 store only with PayPal payments yeah but
00:05:40 00:05:44 I wouldn't why would you want to about
00:05:42 00:05:46 typically the industry standards about
00:05:44 00:05:49 30% of people are going to pay through
00:05:46 00:05:52 PayPal so why would you only want 30% of
00:05:49 00:05:54 your customers to be able to buy right
00:05:52 00:05:56 it doesn't really make sense to me just
00:05:54 00:05:57 judging by how this guy phrased that
00:05:56 00:05:59 he's from out of the country so you
00:05:57 00:06:01 might not have the option to do you know
00:05:59 00:06:02 the normal shot by payments through
00:06:01 00:06:04 credit cards which would be the bulk of
00:06:02 00:06:05 your orders you got to kind of figure
00:06:04 00:06:06 that out that's up to you away the
00:06:05 00:06:09 options if you think you can still make
00:06:06 00:06:11 money with all these PayPal payments
00:06:09 00:06:12 then go right ahead you know any star
00:06:11 00:06:14 asks how long you think shot by drop
00:06:12 00:06:16 shipping will be saturated if it
00:06:14 00:06:18 okay interesting phrasing on some of
00:06:16 00:06:20 these questions but shop by dropshipping
00:06:18 00:06:22 yeah it might be saturated like a lot of
00:06:20 00:06:24 people are jumping in but everything's
00:06:22 00:06:26 saturated at the same time nothing can
00:06:24 00:06:28 really be saturated if you're different
00:06:26 00:06:30 that's one thing I always preach is yeah
00:06:28 00:06:32 a lot of people might be doing this but
00:06:30 00:06:34 95% of people suck acid doing this is
00:06:32 00:06:35 you can be able to completely crush them
00:06:34 00:06:36 all you have to do is outwork them
00:06:35 00:06:38 that's it I think it's pretty simple
00:06:36 00:06:38 it's what do you do to win I'm gonna
00:06:38 00:06:41 outwork you
00:06:38 00:06:43 I guarantee it that's why I want to win
00:06:41 00:06:45 Sam Hill in ski asks you seem to know a
00:06:43 00:06:47 lot about e-commerce and ads and such

00:07:28 00:07:31 have to do with Shopify top speed if you
00:07:29 00:07:32 want to be successful you gonna have to
00:07:31 00:07:34 test different products different
00:07:32 00:07:35 audiences different interests depending
00:07:34 00:07:36 on if you're doing Facebook ads or
00:07:35 00:07:37 Instagram influencers different

00:07:42 00:07:45 testing is I guess you haven't watched
00:07:43 00:07:47 any of my videos been to any courses or
00:07:45 00:07:48 don't understand this business so I
00:07:47 00:07:51 wouldn't recommend getting into it
00:07:48 00:07:53 Norden sure Palama asks i made one sale
00:07:51 00:07:53 with 30 to 50 visitors no matter what to
00:07:53 00:07:55 do next
00:07:53 00:07:56 go get another 30 to 50 visitors I
00:07:55 00:07:58 figure out how to double that and triple
00:07:56 00:07:59 that it's actually not a bad conversion
00:07:58 00:08:01 rate if you're getting sick it's called
00:07:59 00:08:02 the middle forty visitors for every sale
00:08:01 00:08:03 okay
00:08:02 00:08:05 go figure how to get four thousand
00:08:03 00:08:07 visitors a day you know just scale up
00:08:05 00:08:09 your traffic man rah rah 89 asks what is
00:08:07 00:08:11 a reasonable price structure for making
00:08:09 00:08:12 offers to Instagram influencers that's
00:08:11 00:08:14 something I've toked about a little and
00:08:12 00:08:16 covered in some other videos but I'm
00:08:14 00:08:17 gonna be toking about that real soon
00:08:16 00:08:19 and a cool project I've coming out on
00:08:17 00:08:20 Instagram influencers specifically so if
00:08:19 00:08:21 you want to learn more about that stay
00:08:20 00:08:22 tuned to the channel all week because
00:08:21 00:08:24 you'll definitely
00:08:22 00:08:25 some information about that Desiree asks
00:08:24 00:08:28 how y'all getting those funnel hacker
00:08:25 00:08:30 shirts you mean this one you get these
00:08:28 00:08:31 when you're using clickfunnels that's
00:08:30 00:08:33 how got to become a funnel hacker if you
00:08:31 00:08:35 want to rip the merch I'm just playing
00:08:33 00:08:38 Billy Dennis asks what age did you start
00:08:35 00:08:39 shop 517 was recently like four or five
00:08:38 00:08:41 months ago and actually started getting
00:08:39 00:08:44 into it only started to really focus my
00:08:41 00:08:46 attention on it like the last maybe two
00:08:44 00:08:47 months three months yeah three months
00:08:46 00:08:49 right around that ballpark
00:08:47 00:08:52 Simon Bezique I hope that I pronounced
00:08:49 00:08:54 it asks is it legal to dropship branded
00:08:52 00:08:56 stuff from Aliexpress for example Marvel
00:08:54 00:08:57 or Star Wars now this is definitely
00:08:56 00:08:59 something I get not a lot but I've
00:08:57 00:09:00 definitely come ins and questions about
00:08:59 00:09:02 it and personally I've never done it so
00:09:00 00:09:04 I don't know but here's what I can tell
00:09:02 00:09:05 you based on the experience of people
00:09:04 00:09:07 I'm very close friends with look if
00:09:05 00:09:08 you're gonna sell Star Wars stuff
00:09:07 00:09:10 obviously that's a huge franchise chain
00:09:08 00:09:13 they probably will come at you with
00:09:10 00:09:14 copyright if you're big Star Wars is
00:09:13 00:09:16 worth so many billions of dollars
00:09:14 00:09:17 they're really not gonna give a [ __ ]
00:09:16 00:09:19 about you and your store if you're only
00:09:17 00:09:21 making like 10 grand a month so from a
00:09:19 00:09:23 scale standpoint yeah you could run into
00:09:21 00:09:24 issues but it's really not even worth a
00:09:23 00:09:26 big company's time to come at you if
00:09:24 00:09:27 you're so small and the next comment
00:09:26 00:09:29 from Rob Kapoor literally just asked the
00:09:27 00:09:31 same thing so hoping that last question
00:09:29 00:09:32 I just answer and answers yours as well
00:09:31 00:09:33 now you're probably not gonna get sued
00:09:32 00:09:35 if you're not big about really gonna
00:09:33 00:09:37 care but you gotta kind of look into
00:09:35 00:09:39 that that's for sure a gray area that I
00:09:37 00:09:40 don't have experience with Marc Dwyer
00:09:39 00:09:42 asks is it better to have a general
00:09:40 00:09:44 store or a store with a specific niche I
00:09:42 00:09:45 always recommend doing a niche specific
00:09:44 00:09:47 store just because you're gonna run into
00:09:45 00:09:49 issues with your Facebook pixel and it's
00:09:47 00:09:51 like I don't know my first store is a
00:09:49 00:09:53 general store it failed I've had more
00:09:51 00:09:55 success with niche stores that's just my
00:09:53 00:09:57 opinion you do what you want I would
00:09:55 00:09:59 recommend niche these questions are good
00:09:57 00:10:00 you guys ask good questions I hope this
00:09:59 00:10:02 is bring any value the Vermont writes
00:10:00 00:10:04 your guy asks as someone who doesn't
00:10:02 00:10:05 have sales yet but is on the verge of
00:10:04 00:10:07 coming up with an ad budget and whatnot
00:10:05 00:10:09 should I buy calm right away or should I
00:10:07 00:10:09 wait and see if my concept a Denisha
00:10:09 00:10:12 actually works
00:10:09 00:10:14 buh-buh-bah yes always always buy the
00:10:12 00:10:15 domain name for your store immediately
00:10:14 00:10:16 once you get it set up first of all
00:10:15 00:10:18 someone could take it from you second
00:10:16 00:10:20 it's literally like ten dollars or
00:10:18 00:10:21 thirteen dollars it's a joke so
00:10:20 00:10:23 definitely buy it it looks a lot better
00:10:21 00:10:24 it's gonna add so much credibility not
00:10:23 00:10:26 even credibility but it's like it looks
00:10:24 00:10:28 so unprofessional if you're running an
00:10:26 00:10:30 ad it has some ugly-ass link so
00:10:28 00:10:31 definitely go buy your domain Andre de
00:10:30 00:10:34 Nelson
00:10:31 00:10:36 asks so I go traffic up to 4k day but no
00:10:34 00:10:38 sales organic traffic by the way how can
00:10:36 00:10:40 I convert those visits into sales
00:10:38 00:10:42 not even all of them with maybe some at
00:10:40 00:10:43 least lol first of all if you're getting
00:10:42 00:10:45 four thousand visits I don't know if
00:10:43 00:10:48 that's a day Oh a day a holy [ __ ] um
00:10:45 00:10:50 you're either your audience sucks which
00:10:48 00:10:52 is most likely the case that traffic is
00:10:50 00:10:53 low-quality maybe it's not targeted for
00:10:52 00:10:55 the specific niche of the products
00:10:53 00:10:56 you're selling you might want to look at
00:10:55 00:10:57 how many check out for initiated because
00:10:56 00:10:59 if you have a ton of check out to being
00:10:57 00:11:01 initiated and no sales there's probably
00:10:59 00:11:02 an error with that that's not letting
00:11:01 00:11:05 people check out which is a huge problem
00:11:02 00:11:06 you gotta fix you say organic traffic so
00:11:05 00:11:08 I don't know exactly I didn't give me
00:11:06 00:11:09 too much information but it's likely an
00:11:08 00:11:09 issue with the traffic and where it's
00:11:09 00:11:11 coming from
00:11:09 00:11:13 it might be location so look at the
00:11:11 00:11:15 demographics on Gita's asks how do I
00:11:13 00:11:17 combine ecommerce with school you don't
00:11:15 00:11:19 two very separate things one is fun and
00:11:17 00:11:20 one is [ __ ] I'm just playing but
00:11:19 00:11:22 obviously is asking you know how can you
00:11:20 00:11:24 do both at the same time dude you have
00:11:22 00:11:25 two high schools like 8 hours a day
00:11:24 00:11:27 ok there's 24 hours in a day it's gonna
00:11:25 00:11:28 give you at least another 8 on top
00:11:27 00:11:30 school to figure this out just don't
00:11:28 00:11:32 make excuses in prioritize your time
00:11:30 00:11:33 Derrick Morrell asks also what are your
00:11:32 00:11:35 thoughts on shipping free versus paid
00:11:33 00:11:37 this is a good question okay I always
00:11:35 00:11:39 have free shipping if it's like a retail
00:11:37 00:11:41 or a product that's on sale but if it's
00:11:39 00:11:43 a free product obviously I'm charging
00:11:41 00:11:44 for shipping I'm just never gonna charge
00:11:43 00:11:45 them for the product and then shipping
00:11:44 00:11:47 as well you don't want them to feel like
00:11:45 00:11:48 they're being charged twice that's huge
00:11:47 00:11:50 there's not really a point just add the
00:11:48 00:11:51 shipping cost into the front end cost
00:11:50 00:11:53 that they're paying for the product
00:11:51 00:11:55 itself that's definitely gonna increase
00:11:53 00:11:57 your conversions Tanuja Kumar asks how
00:11:55 00:11:59 do you negotiate with influencers I
00:11:57 00:12:00 always pay the full price say that
00:11:59 00:12:02 you're looking to build a long-term
00:12:00 00:12:03 relationship and act as if you have a
00:12:02 00:12:04 ton of other stores with a lot of
00:12:03 00:12:06 influencers that you work with on a
00:12:04 00:12:07 regular basis because if you come off as
00:12:06 00:12:09 experienced they're gonna give you a
00:12:07 00:12:11 cheaper deal on the front end because
00:12:09 00:12:13 they want that long-term consistent you
00:12:11 00:12:14 know payments for shout outs on their
00:12:13 00:12:15 page that's definitely how I do and it
00:12:14 00:12:16 seems to work pretty well if you just
00:12:15 00:12:19 act like you know what you're doing
00:12:16 00:12:20 Austin dakotas asks do you set up a
00:12:19 00:12:22 different bank account for your Shopify
00:12:20 00:12:23 stores or do you just use your personal
00:12:22 00:12:25 account I run everything through a
00:12:23 00:12:27 couple of my different business accounts
00:12:25 00:12:28 that's a whole other conversation for
00:12:27 00:12:29 another day you can do what you want I
00:12:28 00:12:30 don't know if you've a business set up
00:12:29 00:12:33 for whatever but mine's just a whole
00:12:30 00:12:35 freakin mess of bank accounts personals
00:12:33 00:12:37 transfers monthly payments S Corp C
00:12:35 00:12:39 corpse LLC's DBA that's just absolutely
00:12:37 00:12:42 stupid and it's I'm not good at that
00:12:39 00:12:43 that's why I outsource it
00:12:42 00:12:44 hire someone to do it for you if you
00:12:43 00:12:46 don't understand it I'm meeting with the
00:12:44 00:12:47 CPA next week to figure out the tack
00:12:46 00:12:48 does it make sure I'm a hundred percent
00:12:47 00:12:49 good on that don't want to get screwed
00:12:48 00:12:51 over when it comes to that stuff
00:12:49 00:12:53 how are you growing your email list
00:12:51 00:12:55 Shoshi Chico asks how are you growing
00:12:53 00:12:56 your email list and how often you
00:12:55 00:12:58 sending them email your girl on the list
00:12:56 00:13:00 by bringing customers and giving them an
00:12:58 00:13:02 incentive or a reason to give you their
00:13:00 00:13:03 email and I usually send out emails once
00:13:02 00:13:05 a week it just depends on the store and
00:13:03 00:13:06 on you know what time of the year it is
00:13:05 00:13:08 like going into a quarter for it I can
00:13:06 00:13:09 really hit them for all the holidays you
00:13:08 00:13:11 know stuff like Halloween Thanksgiving
00:13:09 00:13:12 Christmas all that stuff no reason to
00:13:11 00:13:13 send an email but email marketing is
00:13:12 00:13:15 huge you can make a lot of money on that
00:13:13 00:13:17 on the backend so definitely focus on
00:13:15 00:13:19 like building a quality list lowest Khoa
00:13:17 00:13:21 that's says tell something about your
00:13:19 00:13:22 school there's not much to tell I do
00:13:21 00:13:25 online school yeah there's not much to
00:13:22 00:13:26 tell you know rah Lonnie asks what's
00:13:25 00:13:29 your opinion on starting to shop for
00:13:26 00:13:30 business under 18 hayden then asks
00:13:29 00:13:32 what's your reasoning for mentioning age
00:13:30 00:13:34 I don't really see a reason why people
00:13:32 00:13:36 keep bringing up age and all of this
00:13:34 00:13:38 there's not really a difference okay
00:13:36 00:13:40 people need to realize that if you're
00:13:38 00:13:41 under age that's your advantage you have
00:13:40 00:13:43 more time you're younger than all these
00:13:41 00:13:45 people you have more time to dedicate as
00:13:43 00:13:46 you don't have actual responsibilities
00:13:45 00:13:49 no bills you can invest all of your time
00:13:46 00:13:50 energy and resources into your store or
00:13:49 00:13:51 whatever business you're trying to do
00:13:50 00:13:52 and blow it up from there it's your
00:13:51 00:13:54 advantage so my advice to you would be
00:13:52 00:13:55 go ahead and run with it parents sweat
00:13:54 00:13:57 and ask Tejeda know you're getting bad
00:13:55 00:13:58 for a messaging a lot of influencers at
00:13:57 00:13:59 one time do you know any ways around it
00:13:58 00:14:01 when you hit that point you stop and
00:13:59 00:14:03 wait yeah you should do like five or ten
00:14:01 00:14:05 come back you know an hour or two later
00:14:03 00:14:06 another five or ten because Instagram
00:14:05 00:14:08 does have a cap I believe it's about
00:14:06 00:14:09 thirty if you keep it in at thirty every
00:14:08 00:14:11 single day trying to message influencers
00:14:09 00:14:13 every single time you hit that they're
00:14:11 00:14:14 just going to increase that like pause
00:14:13 00:14:16 period where it doesn't let you send any
00:14:14 00:14:18 dance so it's gonna go from a couple
00:14:16 00:14:19 hours to a day to a week to I think a
00:14:18 00:14:22 month against it's ridiculous
00:14:19 00:14:23 oh [ __ ] Johnson asks I opened a shop
00:14:22 00:14:25 about three weeks ago and although I'm
00:14:23 00:14:27 getting visitors I haven't sold anything
00:14:25 00:14:29 I just drastikally lowered my prices and
00:14:27 00:14:30 hope that people start buying okay first
00:14:29 00:14:32 of all why would you drastikally lower
00:14:30 00:14:34 your prices were they too high in the
00:14:32 00:14:35 first place is it not worth the value to
00:14:34 00:14:36 be not than the research you should
00:14:35 00:14:37 definitely go through a course or two
00:14:36 00:14:38 and make sure you know what you're doing
00:14:37 00:14:39 and setting things up the right way
00:14:38 00:14:40 because you shouldn't really have to
00:14:39 00:14:42 change your pricing if you did the
00:14:40 00:14:43 research on the front end to know the
00:14:42 00:14:44 audience know what they're trying to buy
00:14:43 00:14:46 and know how much you're paying for it
00:14:44 00:14:48 even shields asks awesome also do you go
00:14:46 00:14:50 to college you don't have to answer that
00:14:48 00:14:53 lol just curious no I don't go to Kyle
00:14:50 00:14:55 I'm 17 here's a good question by Madan
00:14:53 00:14:56 Gopal das he said hey bro nice videos
00:14:55 00:14:57 appreciate it a lot
00:14:56 00:14:59 thank you brother I appreciate it sport
00:14:57 00:15:01 I just got started a shot by last month
00:14:59 00:15:03 my question for your Q&A video is how do
00:15:01 00:15:04 you scale a winning ad that's huge and
00:15:03 00:15:05 I'm gonna assume what you're definitely
00:15:04 00:15:07 toking about Facebook increase the
00:15:05 00:15:08 budget but there's definitely a scale
00:15:07 00:15:10 like a growth chart you have to follow
00:15:08 00:15:11 otherwise base book o to see that you're
00:15:10 00:15:13 increasing the budget so they're gonna
00:15:11 00:15:14 make you spend more per purchase per
00:15:13 00:15:15 engagement whatever it is because they
00:15:14 00:15:17 see - you're adding into it so what I
00:15:15 00:15:18 like to do is I'll go up about 5 bucks a
00:15:17 00:15:20 day every 2 or 3 days
00:15:18 00:15:22 and I'll also be duplicating the
00:15:20 00:15:23 campaign and just doubling the budget so
00:15:22 00:15:25 I'll duplicate the execs and everything
00:15:23 00:15:26 just changed the budget that's a good
00:15:25 00:15:28 way I've heard people say both but
00:15:26 00:15:30 definitely start going from 5 bucks a
00:15:28 00:15:31 day to 500 a day to 5,000 every single
00:15:30 00:15:33 day because you're definitely gonna get
00:15:31 00:15:35 screwed over doing that Paul Harris asks
00:15:33 00:15:36 what were you doing at age 14 I was a
00:15:35 00:15:38 full time student I was trading stoks
00:15:36 00:15:39 every single day and I spent about 3
00:15:38 00:15:40 months out of the year on tour
00:15:39 00:15:42 snowboarding which is something a lot
00:15:40 00:15:43 you didn't know I was about to go pro
00:15:42 00:15:45 with that that was gonna be my full set
00:15:43 00:15:47 career path but due to injuries and lack
00:15:45 00:15:48 of interest I switched that basically to
00:15:47 00:15:49 entrepreneurship because I got a lot
00:15:48 00:15:51 more interested in that do you tell the
00:15:49 00:15:53 influencers when like what time to post
00:15:51 00:15:54 your ad I do here's the thing I'll
00:15:53 00:15:56 figure out where their audience is
00:15:54 00:15:57 coming from and then I'm gonna make sure
00:15:56 00:15:59 I hit that audience in a certain
00:15:57 00:16:00 location at a time when they're actually
00:15:59 00:16:02 on their phones like later in the
00:16:00 00:16:03 evening you know like 5 p.m. and on or
00:16:02 00:16:05 I'll start it bright and early in the
00:16:03 00:16:07 morning like 6 7 a.m. in their time zone
00:16:05 00:16:08 because then people see that throughout
00:16:07 00:16:09 the day depending on how long the shot
00:16:08 00:16:11 it is so definitely do research on the
00:16:09 00:16:13 audience you're getting your products in
00:16:11 00:16:16 front of what quantum X right here
00:16:13 00:16:19 quarter for 2k 17 aka time to [ __ ] [ __ ]
00:16:16 00:16:20 of a Skeet Skeet stay walk this guy's
00:16:19 00:16:23 funny he also has how do you optimize
00:16:20 00:16:24 product / niche research and quarter
00:16:23 00:16:26 four for maximum profits I would
00:16:24 00:16:27 recommend trying to put some trend
00:16:26 00:16:29 products related to certain holidays
00:16:27 00:16:29 like Halloween's coming up then it's
00:16:29 00:16:31 gonna be Thanksgiving Christmas
00:16:29 00:16:33 depending on your niche trying to find
00:16:31 00:16:34 products that capitalize that that you
00:16:33 00:16:35 could actually put on your store that's
00:16:34 00:16:36 definitely something I'm doing alright
00:16:35 00:16:38 this is definitely one of the last
00:16:36 00:16:40 questions it's been a long video we'll
00:16:38 00:16:42 wrap this up Samuel Avila asks can you
00:16:40 00:16:44 reuse an IG influencer several times
00:16:42 00:16:46 maybe three times a week a day how do
00:16:44 00:16:47 you do it yes personally I like to do it
00:16:46 00:16:49 about every other day because you don't
00:16:47 00:16:50 want to end up over saturating their
00:16:49 00:16:51 audience and just blasting them with
00:16:50 00:16:53 different promotions because eventually
00:16:51 00:16:54 then it's gonna start not working for
00:16:53 00:16:55 you so spread it out have other
00:16:54 00:16:56 influence
00:16:55 00:16:57 you're working with as well that stuff
00:16:56 00:16:59 and the best way to do it will you do
00:16:57 00:17:00 affiliate marketing videos or just drop
00:16:59 00:17:02 shipping I don't know exactly I've done
00:17:00 00:17:03 a few on affiliate marketing back in the
00:17:02 00:17:05 beginning I deleted a lot of old videos
00:17:03 00:17:07 I want this channel right now to solely
00:17:05 00:17:08 focus on e-commerce just because that's
00:17:07 00:17:10 what I'm fully focused on that's what
00:17:08 00:17:11 interests me the most at the moment I
00:17:10 00:17:12 can and definitely will start branching
00:17:11 00:17:14 out making other videos in the near
00:17:12 00:17:15 future but for right now it's e-commerce
00:17:14 00:17:17 but let me know what kind of content you
00:17:15 00:17:18 guys want to see in the comments below
00:17:17 00:17:19 if there's any specific videos you guys
00:17:18 00:17:21 want to see I might end up making some
00:17:19 00:17:22 and this would be the last question for
00:17:21 00:17:24 the day so I ask what if you don't have
00:17:22 00:17:27 little to no money on you and want to
00:17:24 00:17:29 drop shipping well scan Jeff 1000
00:17:27 00:17:32 answered that perfectly with get a job
00:17:29 00:17:33 lmao no frill that's the best way like
00:17:32 00:17:35 it really doesn't cost a lot of money
00:17:33 00:17:37 it's such a low barrier to entry doing
00:17:35 00:17:39 shop 5 e commerce and all this stuff so
00:17:37 00:17:40 since this is not Amazon FBA where
00:17:39 00:17:41 you're buying all the products up front
00:17:40 00:17:43 and doing that it's really not too hard
00:17:41 00:17:44 you don't mow lawns do whatever rake
00:17:43 00:17:45 leaves as you're coming into fall go get
00:17:44 00:17:47 a job work at McDonnell
00:17:45 00:17:48 doesn't matter figure out how to make
00:17:47 00:17:50 like two three four hundred bucks a
00:17:48 00:17:51 month and you'll be good to go that's
00:17:50 00:17:52 enough rad span you know start getting
00:17:51 00:17:54 some results coming in and figuring
00:17:52 00:17:55 everything out but I hope this video has
00:17:54 00:17:56 been valuable to you guys and answered a
00:17:55 00:17:58 lot of your questions there's still so
00:17:56 00:17:59 many more I'm just scrolling through all
00:17:58 00:18:00 these not even gonna get into all this
00:17:59 00:18:01 there's so much stuff I just tried to
00:18:00 00:18:03 pick out the ones that I think would
00:18:01 00:18:05 bring the most value to my channel so
00:18:03 00:18:06 with that being said I appreciate your
00:18:05 00:18:07 attention all the way through the video
00:18:06 00:18:09 if you haven't done so already please

00:18:09 00:18:13 enjoyed it and I'm gonna see you guys
