I was thinking about starting a IG dropship business. I would basically fix a aliexpress dropship system that's connected with shopify which i then promote on instagram. Does anyone have experience in this kind of thing and has any tips or feedback? I would target girls in my country that probably would be interested in a specific product if branded well enough.
My original post explains it detailed enough already, it's really quite simple.
I was thinking that maybe the fact that i target people in my country in my native language already makes it more appealing to potential customers. Then when I have established some ground for the brand I'm going to expand. The initial investment is quite low, like a few hundred or so depending on how much I advertise, and there is still potential for some nice gain.
In the US if you are not delivering product within 3-5 days, or you are charging shipping, you will lose 70% of sales within the first few seconds.
Your customs times alone can be anywhere from 3-14 days when shipping from China
Go back to BHW and delete your account and use the other half of your brain to come up with a "get rich quick scheme"
and if not welcome to the most saturated IM sector in 2016, say goodbye to all your money.
Might be many people who do this, but my point is to steadily grow a valuable brand. I think most people who do this don't put much effort in to brand image, instead they just shill the product with a high mark-up. I'm not trying to find the product with the highest mark-up but instead find higher quality products that eventually can become a thing (think DW watches). The fact that i target a specific niche in my home country instantly reduces the competition as well, so I don't think saturation will be a problem.
>say goodbye to all your money
Initial investment is low, potential gain quite high. I don't really see what you base your statements on.
Fuck all those Chinese sites, I'll teach you fuckers how to make real money.
Step one: Find a forum full of rich fuckers who have some expensive hobby. (watches, suits, shoes, cars, mountain climbing, ect)
Step two: Make an account and study the shit out of the forums. To be more specific, figure out what products are "buzzing".
Step three: Find some fucker on these forums selling their products. Take the pictures and find a facebook group that is into the same hobby and post the pictures as your own. ALSO RAISE THE PRICE SO YOU MAKE A PROFIT(I HOPE YOU AREN'T RETARDED)
Step four: Repeat step three a bunch of times with a bunch of products.
Step 5: Once someone want's to purchase the goods from you hit up the seller from where ever you stole the pics from and tell him and explain to him you are a "dropshipper" 99/100 people could care less what you are, they just want to make a buck like you. Once you tell him you have a client and want him to send the product to that persons address, ask him to send pics of everything he ships so you can use this just incase of a dispute.
Now do this whole process over and over. Hopefully you find a reliable sellers and buyers so this becomes less risky.
There you fucker go.
ZERO START UP CASH AND EASY MARKUPS LOL.
FOCUS ON HIGH TIER MARKETS.
had a similar idea. basically i wanna design t-shirts and make up a new brand. i'd use IG/shopify/other sites to post about all the designs i have, and have some friends model in them.
what im not sure about is whether to buy a bunch of equipment to print the designs on the shirts myself or rely on a 3rd party printer online, which apparently some people actually do
