How to make a profitable store? Case study

When trying to create your own shopify store it’s great to find out what WORKS!

You can use our Sellslikehotcakes best seller finder tools or do your own research.

Today I have a great finding for you, as example. (I am not affiliated with this store and just found it yesterday). I use it as an example of successful campaign.

It is selling an electric handheld pump for a car.

This is their sponsored ad, well made video with a big amount of comments and likes. 24.5k likes? not bad.

 

No surprise it got many comments and shares. and if you check their offer, they are selling the electric pump for a crazy price of 87 usd! Even going as far as saying it was 300 usd (lol) before for a good scarcity “SALE” effect.

Obviously the source product is much cheaper and using Sellslikehotcakes research tools we can easily find it on Aliexpress for just 35 usd. So in case they use dropshipping model their profit is around 52 usd per unit (!) Amazing !

But that’s not all! 🙂

If they use the whitelabelling (most likely by putting the Dragon logo on it) they get even better prices.

3-8 usd per unit with 2000 units minimum. Add shipping and FBA fees and you get around 15 usd cost per unit with the sale price of 87 usd 🙂 Not bad, huh?

Now your profit margin is crazy 72 usd !

So you can see how well you can get started with dropshipping using a simple viral idea, playing on the passion and the need instead of trying to sell generic products like necklaces or t-shirts!

If you have not started, I hope you get started soon, and get your store going for the coming-soon Halloween and Christmas sale!!

UPS is Universal Product Code A barcode used for tracking trade items in stores. It usually has 12 numerical digits, which are uniquely assigned to each traded item (GS1 US). You can buy it on speedybarcodes and other sites.

Seems like you are not doing it right.. check the new FB mastery bonus series in the VIDEOS.. You need to target right audience with right ads! It's really helpful stuff there.

Also about FB... FB video ads.. should i try with voice or muted?

 little_tiger says at 21:49 et
Most people watch their videos muted so it has to make sense without audio. With captions too if possible.. Attention span is 15-60 seconds. Remember facebook counts a video view as something like 3 seconds so its better to ignore views and track engagement.

Hey guys, thanks for the great course! Dont know how to say, but I have a strong thinking within myself, that it is too late to start. I know that this will probably be only a belief. Any ideas for helping me with this issue?
I am also looking for products but it's really hard to find something with the criterias the course is telling me.
What about you guys? Are you thinking similar or I am the only one here? :)

hi Jan and welcome. "is it too late" is the common fear of everyone that is getting started. What you really fear is "is it too much competition? what if my product does not fit all the criteria"? The truth is, there will be never an ideal product that fits ALL criteria. Criteria is an indication for you in which direction to look, but it does not mean that you must find ideal product that fits ALL criterias at the same time. This will never be the case.

This year is amazing time to start ecommerce, because so many new tools are developed and released and with new amazon review policies it's getting harder for low quality sellers just to buy tons of 5 star reviews and flood the market like it was last year. So i think it's getting even easier for people to stand out when most of those low quality sellers are banned for incentivize reviewes.

The great place to start looking for ideas is "Niche finder tool". http://sellslikehotcakes.co/niche_finder.php for example who know that baby towels or corner flags might be a great idea to sell? This will give you great ideas on how to find a product!

Great points there... is it too late to learn new languange? too late to start a business? You set your own limits. Maybe late for you, but i will start my 4th product this year and i dont look back. more business for me :)

The right time is NOW. Amazon is BOOMING. Jeff Bezos becomes second richest person On The Forbes 400. The gold rush time is NOW.

Do you know number 1 reason most people fail in ecommerce?

It's because they never get themselves a chance, they never get started, always procrastinating and delaying the start.

I get questions and complains like "I don't have time for this", "How much time do I need?" Well if you can't even find time to learn how are you supposed to build your passive income?

The beautify of Amazon and Shopify business is that once it is set, you are set "for life" with a strong passive income.

The problem? Most people don't realize it and never start!

"I'm too busy working" (the old way)

So the hashtag for the day - TAKE ACTION!

Start implementing what you learned and you will become successful, I believe in you!
