If I’m being honest these numbers aren’t anything crazy to the seasoned vet. some of the guys and girls in the mastermind group I’m in do upward to 20k-30k a month! I have 6 sites now and my best month has only been $6k. Since my last article I’ve been getting emails (15 so far) from people asking me to help set-up their ad campaigns and what products they should sell.
I felt a bit perplexed and humored by the fact that people are asking me for information that took me years to learn. I was like thinking in my head, “Wait… you do understand people pay $1000’s of dollars for this type of information?”. Trust me, when you know/or got something good you don’t give it away for free.
However, today I will share how I made $1337.00 in one day with the same store I created for the last article. It’s a good reference point since I’m willing to be pretty open about sales and dos and don’ts.
If you haven’t read my last article about the top 5 reasons most people who try drop-shipping fail then please do so. I think you’ll get some good value out of it. I also encourage anyone who is serious about starting a legit drop-shipping business to sign-up for the FREE 10-day mini course.

There is no Magic Formula
Sorry, but there is no magical formula that will make money instantly appear in your account. There is no simple trick, hack or scheme to make you money. There is no shortcuts to this marathon and at times you will feel it’s hopeless and want to give up. All I can say is welcome to the world of running your own business. There’s ups and downs but at the end of the day I guarantee you’ll be glad you made the switch to being your own boss. The only prerequisites are discipline, consistency and commitment.
The DSL forum is great and there are a lot of people who have vast experience in generating a lot more money then I have. Everyone wants to help you get your first sale so If you do decide to join or you have any questions, feel free to ask me.
It was June 20th and a little over 2-weeks since the 1st sale. I was starting to think the 1st sale was a fluke so using what I learned from my adwords certification studies I began to scale and adjust my ads bids. I then created new conditions for my ads factoring who would see them and where they would be shown geographically. I mean I don’t want to go too into detail because that’s a whole article in itself but you get my point. I went to work and long story short I raised some bids(marginally) and lowered some.
It can’t be stressed enough how important having a strong understanding of google Adwords is to your success. Otherwise you’ll be paying some random person a lot(or a little) with no idea how validated their work is. In the DSL course they have a certified google expert teach you all about adwords from manually setting up ads to how you should configure them, adjust them and inter- link them. It’s 100% pure gold because it actually works!
Summer time is peak season for my niche
See what a little research can do? Google trends will tell you all you need to know about a niche so you can plan a marketing plan accordingly. If you don’t know how to create a marketing plan then take a quick trip to google to get an idea. Everything becomes easier with repetition so don’t worry if the whole concept is like a foreign language at first.
My products have an average cost of $400-$500
When you can find highly reputable brands to drop-ship for you then you can start selling products with an average ticket price of $400 usd. You’re probably wondering how the hell am I selling something for this much money. It takes as much work to sell a $20 item as it does to sell a $400 one.
The only difference is the profit margin.
I Fully Optimized My Ads
Cool, you know how to code and can create an awesome website. Even the most interactive website is useless if you don’t know how to send your site traffic. I highly regard it, as the Adwords course (for me personally) changed my financial life really. Knowing how to properly tune my ads and understanding the ins and outs of my ads has initiated the process for maintaining a consistent stream of income.
Google reps will always tell you to spend more. 4 years ago when is started my first website the google rep told me to increase my bids after a month with no sales. Then a month later told me to increase them again. Then another month later told me to increase them more. I made nothing. I only lost money and thought Google ads were a scam.
They never talked about
- interlinking accounts
- focusing on specific user data
- how to set up conditions
- how to stop certain people from clicking on your ads
- how to choose broad, phrase and exact matches
I seriously have a list of 20 things but I feel this ones are the most worth mentioning.
In hindsight should I of done my own due diligence and figure this out myself? Hell yeah, if you want information like this for free then you better be prepared to sit down, read then re-read then ask questions, make mistakes then re-read it again. Otherwise it’s like buying a car and not knowing how to drive it. Believe me this nothing that becomes clear the first time around.
Why should you be? There is no reason why you can’t be doing what i’m doing. I will end it with the old analogical saying, “Give a man a fish and he has a meal for the day, teach a man how to fish and he will be able to have meals for life”. Hell maybe he can even teach someone else too!
As always I’m a push-over so if you want me to set-up your ads for free I will….Said no one ever.
