My Step by Step Journey with Dropshipping - Part 1
So I've decided to post a journey discussion about dropshipping and I will be setting up a dropshipping website starting from scratch. I will tell you my day to day experiences but it could turn into a weekly post since website changes doesn't happen every day lol. I've done dropshipping before but I've never shown anyone what to do in a journey discussion, so let's try it out for everyone as SEOclerks
I will be sourcing items from AliExpress.com and adding them to my website then running various PPC campaigns and SEO campaigns to help bring in sales. I will be running this on Wordpress using WooCommerce, but if I can find something that works better I may switch from WooCommerce to something else (not likely through). I will be creating all of the social platforms pages that I need in order to share my products and posts to anyone following the pages and profiles in order to increase my sales.
I will not be giving my niche away just in case this takes off and I make some decent money. By letting you know what my niche is, I could just be creating competition because people without a unique thought will just snipe my niche and do the same thing lol. I will give away my process and what I'm doing in terms of SEO, PPC, SMM, Keyword Research, etc.
My main goal is to profit, but how much I will profit is not known since I haven't done anything yet. I would like to make an extra $1,000 a month off of this and I assume that I would have to make 200 to 1,000 sales a month depending on how much I profit per sale. Now I could increase the prices of each item so that I make $100 per sale and only need 10 sales a month to hit the $1,000 mark, but that won't happen because people shop around.
- 1st Goal: $1,000 profit per month
- 2nd Goal: $3,000 profit per month
- 3rd Goal: $5,000+ profit per month
Now getting to any of these goals will take time and a lot of work, but it will be worth it. If I can hit the $3,000 or $5,000 a month goals I can then hire someone to do the work and I can just collect the rest of the profits
The profit potential is unknown at this point, but I'll be doing plenty of research so I know my niche is worth targeting and there is a chance of profiting due to the low to medium competition. I will not be targeting difficult niches, so that increases my chances of turning a profit in a shorter amount of time.
Now I've done dropshipping before but I've never done a step by step process and shown everyone what to do so they can also profit. I don't teach too many people through the year so this will be my type of teaching for anyone who wants to set up a different source of income with a very little investment up front. You'll obviously have to pay for certain things like a domain and hosting, but the rest will be optional because I might purchase some things to help me automate some steps to make my life easier lol
I'm hoping that I can turn this into a profitable system for anyone to use if they are wanting to generate a first or second source of income. I'll be trying to automate this as much as possible to decrease your work load and free you up to do whatever else you're currently doing. We all need some help online when it comes to making money, hopefully this method/system will help you out
