We have been working away on the challenge for a couple of month now and have made some gross sales due to FB adverts and selling it inside our networks. We’re at the moment trying to see how we are able to proceed to develop the enterprise.

Has anybody tried or is engaged on one thing comparable? Any experiences inside this business are welcome. We’re at the moment dropshipping merchandise by way of Oberlo and plan to maneuver extra distribution and product regionally if we acquire affordable sufficient traction.

We have gone by way of a number of of the Shopify Academy programs in addition to Startup Colleges movies to achieve helpful training on the subject and see how we are able to greatest execute on this enterprise. Does anybody have another recommendation for items of training that they’ve discovered helpful in their very own progress?

Wouldn’t it make extra sense to maintain the higher-priced merchandise as is and drop the lower-cost merchandise however then provide free transport solely after $25 or so? Has anybody had expertise with this and the way does it be just right for you?

We’re additionally trying to get began with some influencer advertising and marketing. The concept of providing commissions looks as if a pretty one particularly with micro-influencers with maybe much less on the road. Does anybody have any expertise with this as nicely?
