Hi Guest!

Our website stays online because of the support of our advertisers. A huge part of them are from banner ads that appear on our site. While some of them seems to be intrusive for some, these ads are needed to keep our community running and continue providing free membership service for buyers.

In light to this, we request that you disable ad blocking programs or add our website to your ad blocker's whitelist. This keeps us from offering our basic membership to everyone for free and help with maintenance costs of our website.

If you have already disabled ad blocking programs or added us into the whitelist, please ignore this message, this message will disappear in a few seconds!

Finally $1k day on Shopify! Let's all share tactics, tips, etc'...

    Hi,

    I've been lurking here for a while but never really posted anything (never had an account to begin with). The advice here is great, there is a good ratio between technical/mindset advice.

    I thought about opening a discussion where we could all share some tips/advice (what to avoid, what works/doesn't, technical advice, etc') to help each other on our journey.

    I'll start. Here is the biggest lesson I learned, which frankly I wish I knew when I got in the game 9 months ago.

    DO YOUR COMPETITIVE RESEARCH! One of the fastest paths to success in my opinion; yet so many people neglect it because it's too tedious/time consuming.

    Conducting audience and competitor research prior to launching ones store, is probably one of the most effective and efficient ways of ensuring one have a solid start, especially if funding is an issue. The problem most new folks have when it comes to dropshipping or picking a product in general, is that they lack solid footing in their new business and the market they've decided to get into.

    Every once in a while, some might find that magic untapped niche, and subsequently makes some amount of money from it. They earn from it, and then they lose it, because other vultures will undercut them, or steal from them. Then the whole thing repeats over and over. It's one long grind of earning enough to survive, until they strike it lucky with an undiscovered niche. That's not running a business though, that's just gambling.

    To save time, those who want my advice please answer this question and I'll do my best to help:
    What type of problems are you facing with on a daily basis? How are you solving them? What are your biggest obstacles right now?

    Cheers,

    Alexander
