and encouragement and I’m gonna be I’m gonna be showing you my ads manager my store like dashboard and also I’m gonna show you my profits and I’m gonna be revealing almost everything like besides my product so make sure to watch the whole video till the end so I recently scaled to 2.5 K per day in the last like two weeks but before showing you how I scaled to 2.5 k I’m gonna show you my whole journey so let’s go to the Shopify dashboard and I’m gonna show you like some stats I’m gonna talk about the journey like the ups and downs alright we’re in my Shopify dashboard so yeah like like I showed you in the first video I think I started around like 8th or 9th of May so yeah I think that’s like 5 months ago and yeah I’m gonna show you like month by month and talk about like the month like I’m gonna give you like a summary of the month so yeah let’s go – lets go – lets show you just like the May so how it looked like so yeah guys so in May I started like on the 8th or 9th and I think you can like see my video like I talked about the journey but this is like when I started running my store and I was I was I I had some coaching and stuff like that to kind of like jumpstart my journey I also had some courses but they’re just kind of like hidden mists so yeah the coaching and stuff like really helped me and this was like the first month of doing yeah and this was like doing like worldwide and stuff like that yeah so let’s go let’s go to the next month ok so now we’re on June so like I said before I’ve failed so many times guys and the biggest reason for my failure was just that I was that I gave up but this time I really like you know stuck to it and took action so what I what I want you two guys to do is just like start learning plus applying you just gotta take a lot of action and apply what you learn and during this month that is exactly what I did I think I talked about the coaching with Mike which was for me it was revolutionary because I started I I stopped for Mike I I learned so much you know like about Facebook ads and just fulfillment and scaling and everything so during this time during this time you know as you can see like I scale to like 1k you know and I think there was a pro like within the first month of doing Shopify or something like that yeah and then to to K you know and then then it was like kind of like my products are to die and yeah I’m gonna tell you like the two products one was like kind of niche the second the second was like more general but what was interesting was like most of the sales were from Instagram I think like 85% were from Instagram feed so thatĂ­s work at the time very very well for me so yeah like I was you know like so let’s go back and I’m gonna tell you like how many how many products I tested so during the May I think I tested like two products the first one was a complete failure and then the second one was the winner and I think in the June I found the second kind of winner so like all the revving you can see here during the June during June was like from two products yeah so I tested only three products and I had like two products that were selling really really well you know so I kind of didn’t understand that I’m in the importance of like testing new products all the time and being consistent with testing new products so my products are to die like as you can see like it died doing like I don’t know a week or something like that just went completely you know and here was like a my my failed attempt you like to revive it but as you can see like no and during the time I stopped I kind of like lost all motivation I don’t know maybe it was like depression or something because I was sleeping like 12 hours at night and then during the day I was also sleeping like 2 to 3 hours so I was sleeping like you know like 12 to 15 hours per day like I had no energy so during that time I didn’t really do anything and there was a reason why I took a break from YouTube because I wasn’t really doing Shopify and I didn’t really have like any energy to do anything okay so going into August so in August like at the end of the August I graduated from University finally I finally graduated it took me six years you know I’m not really proud of it it’s kind of embarrassing that it took me so long but yeah like during this time I wasn’t also like testing that many products as you can see like no like nope I was testing like some products and they just weren’t working you know so I was still like very like I was not motivated you know like I was kind of you know stuck okay so during September so during the September it was kind of like the same it was kind of like the same story you know I was testing products I was struggling you know it was very like unmotivated to work but still you know I just tried I try I said like man like I can’t give up you know I gotta keep pushing you know so I started testing more products okay so now – the interesting part I’m gonna show you how I scaled from 0 to 2.5 k and I don’t know like two weeks or something like that so it’s 22nd the 27th was the day I started testing this product and yeah let’s go – lets go – ads manager yeah so let’s go to ads manager and yeah now we’re at 27th – yeah so as you can see AK the ads manager isn’t very accurate you know like they’re still missing like 300 dollars or something like that and at spent so the ad spent was 3000 yeah so 3,300 dollars and this was the revenue yeah so let’s go to order metrics and I’m gonna show you something interesting you know I’m gonna show you like the the daily profits that they had spent so you can see like some interesting things that I’ve learned so far now I want to show you like hot like my journey like with scaling this product and like with testing and scaling this product so the 27th of September was the day I started this product I started testing it and like right out like the first day was like very good and I think there were like two outs icing like two products so guys keep in mind like during those two weeks I was testing like I think like four products or something but now I’ve only one product running so like I think this first day I had two products I was testing and yeah like the results I was very surprised you know like like the first day of testing I was like getting 21 percent profit you know that was pretty good so the next day I think I decided to increase the ad spend yeah so I crease it by $100 and that day like I was like I lost money so yeah I was like I’m not sure you know if it’s a winner but I feel like I see you like a potential in it so I just kept I just kept going so the third day on day 3 so we can see kind of lowered the ad spend a little bit tested some new ad sets you know turned off some and just one dollar profit it’s kind of funny okay so day four okay so day four I also increase the ad spin as you can see and but I lost quite a lot of money like like fifty fifty five percent in the negative but that’s still fine a thing like your loss I kind of like adding consistency like my conversion rate like really dropped okay so let’s go to the today I think it’s day five or something yeah day five okay so this day our kind of like I try I try to like lower that spend as you can see but I was still losing money so at that point I was thinking man maybe this product isn’t a winner but butter yeah I just I just tried I just pushed again increase the ad spent you know by fifty percent two hundred dollars but it started to get better as you can see here so yeah like with finding your winners I thought it’s gonna be like like you lose money like for the first week and then you start making money or you start making money right away but the thing is like with drop shipping it’s not linearly it’s like up and down so you know like there is no there is no like cookie cutter there is no like one weight that everything happens you know so even like with advice on Shopify drop shipping not all advice works like what works for somebody does it doesn’t mean that it work it will work for you so you just have to test what works for you you know and that’s what I’m kind of doing here so as you can see like the next day I was still losing money and now it’s been like a week or something you know since I launched it and it’s still kind of like up and down and up and down but they’re after like I think this is like day seven like finally it started to perform a little bit you know at 14% margin yeah so let’s go to like day eight or something like that so this day this day like you know a conversion rate drop like a lot I think it was like 5% or 6% like the day before and then it dropped by 50% and you know as you can see I profit also drop so the lesson here is like guys you got to really try to optimize your store your product page and as you can see like it really affects a profitability you know so try to optimize it maybe I’m gonna make a video on it if you guys are interested but let’s go to the next day so now it has been like 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 so this is day 10 okay so day 10 so yeah so let’s go so my ad spend didn’t really change but as you can see like the conversion rate really increased and that led to a lot of like profit you know I think it was just like adding because in consistency that’s why I like my conversion suddenly dropped like buy so much so you’re gonna experience that as well yeah so this is like the seventh I think on the 7 I launched I launched like 30 ad sets of look-alikes you know like because like okay so like here on Saturday I launched VC look-alikes and that really helped you know as you can see like via content look likes and like my revenue just went up a lot like it went from like 500 to 1,000 dollars then the next day yeah we are at okay so here this day I launched like 30 assets of video view look like I complete forgot about them so I launched those and yeah I prop like the margin was like 19 19 percent yeah and yesterday Israeli was my best day so far and it was 2.5 2.5 k yeah $2,500 but the margin was like really good it was like 29 percent you know profit was $700 and let’s look at today so so today I think we’re through like the half of the day so half of the day is you know of the of the ad spent you know so it’s half of the day and so far we are at 1.8 K so maybe we’ll end at free K I think probably around around 3k maybe a little bit more but what you’re seeing right now like the 2.5 k and today it is just it is just cold interests view content look-alikes video view look-alikes there is no there’s no retargeting there is no look likes for ad to card and purchase and that’s because I made a huge mistake I start using like this app called pixel magic with that AB you can have two pixels I wanted to have like a backup but yeah like the pixel magic like the pixel from from dan from the app it it’s not working for my store like I can’t I can’t really do like I can’t really create like custom audiences for Add to Cart I can’t do retargeting you know because I’m doing DP a dynamic product ads I’m doing IDP a ads but it’s not working because of that so as you can see this is now like all without those look-alikes without retargeting and I’m getting like 25 percent margin you know like 20 to 30 let’s say and this is all without retargeting and without those the best look-alikes you know so if if I would have that it would be probably way way better but yeah guys so yeah I hope this this was useful like this is like proof if you guys like maybe don’t believe me or something you can see like the ads band was 3000 that’s it you know as you can see you know I was struggling for I don’t know like 2 or 3 months you know like I was doing like no revenue I and I was like very discouraged you know but during that time I tested like 13 to 15 products and I found one there was really like a winner so the thing is guys you’re kinda you’re kind of like one product away from changing your life so really just keep going I don’t give up and just work hard every day you know like if you if you won’t quit your job or if you want to drop out of school which I kind of don’t recommend but yeah like if you want to change your life just like dropshipping it’s not the best business model but for people like for people who want to be like independent line travel you know or create something from nothing you know like drop shipping is still pretty good guys so yeah like don’t don’t watch those videos like that drop shipping is dead it’s not dead it’s just become it’s just became a little bit more challenging so you just need to learn how to be a better marketer you just need to learn how to increase your conversion rate how to increase your average order value and how to create really good like ads as well like ad creatives you just got to learn a little bit more you know but it’s still it’s still totally possible and I’m gonna be I’m gonna be showing you like I’m gonna give you some updates on like how I’m doing with scaling I hope this was helpful for you if you’re struggling just just keep going man just just keep pushing just keep learning and keep applying you know like what you learn just just take a lot of action like I have failed I think like ten businesses like I said in the beginning of my channel and it was because I
