Wait, you can give something away but still make money?
Yes, you sure can.
So you know those offers that always seem too good to be true? Make this xxxx amount of money in a matter of days?
I thought the same with this method but apparently not. It actually does work and the theory behind it makes sense, people can make money online right now with this.
Between working on Youtube and life I found time to set this up for my girlfriend to try it out. So far so good!
Why am I sharing this? Because it can’t be saturated, the combinations are endless. It’s a GOLD MINE! This will be the new 2017 online method.
What You Need To Get The Ball Rolling
- Start up cash
- Facebook advertising
- Aliexpress account
- Shopify account
- A box of beer to keep hydrated
So how this works is we are going to be selling shipping. Yip shipping not the actual product.
First, thing you need to do is sign up to Aliexpress and get yourself an account.
You will need to find a product to give away. Just stick with 1 product for now and don’t get carried away trying to advertise all sorts of stuff.
I going to give you the low down on what you should be looking for. Animal products and hobby related products. People are super passionate about this type of stuff.
Now for the price of the product.
Find products that you can buy for around $1-5 with free shipping. You might think this is very weird, but it will all make sense soon.
I love fishing so let’s use that as an example.
With this you can target fishing, bass fishing, trout fishing. More on this soon.
Now the next step is starting a shop at Shopify. If you don’t want to use them you could use your own website on some hosting. I use Blue Host. It would also be a good idea to find a name for your Shopify store.
In the test I did for my partner we just simply added one product and that was it. We didn’t want the customer getting distractions.
Obviously the more detailed your shop is the more authentic it looks.
Keep in mind that you don’t need to go crazy with this. Don’t over think it just add a logo and a few products you want to promote.
Name it something like “Bobs Sale Shack”.
I’m no pro at Shopify so I keep it simple. If you want to see how a guru sets it all up I recommend the eCom Empire course. Yes, this is a paid course however it’s an over the shoulder video course that shows you EVERYTHING!
I’m simply just laying down the foundations in this article. However, this article is enough to get you started.
This is important
Set up your shipping cost, this is how you will make your money!
I recommend $9.95 or $14.95. Test them both.
How To Make That Money!
Now you have a store and a product it’s time to earn money online with it. We will use Facebook to make the sales.
Simply start a Facebook page about the product. In this case, I’ll call the page “Lucky Lures”
Next you want to learn how to setup a conversion pixel in Shopify. This blog post can help you with that.
When starting your advertising campaigns you want to advertise as “conversions to website”
Now you want to choose an audience. I’m not going to go into too much detail because this is simple. We want to choose a fishing audience.
- Fishing, bass fishing, trout fishing, salmon fishing
You get the idea.
It’s time to set up the advert so I’ll give you an example of something I would do. If you have trouble finding an image without a watermark ask the vendor for an image without one, they will hook you up. (lulz)
So they might seem a little spammy right? If it does then simply change it to 2c lures instead of free and change them 2cents. Looks a bit more legit.
That’s really it for this part.
How To Scale Up & Send Off Orders
When starting you should start maybe 3 or 4 adverts. Once you find one that works scale up on that.
Find similar products then use them with the base of your winning advert.
So, you would change the picture, use a similar product but keep the advert headline the same etc.
Then rinse and repeat with other niches.
Sending off orders is simple. Copy the details from Shopify and paste them into. Easy right?
The Method To The Madness
How does this work, how do we make all our money?
Let’s say you charge $14.95 for shipping, the person gets the free products and pays for the shipping.
You make $14.95. Take away the conversion fee, let’s say $2 then take away the price of the item that’s $3.80.
10x $9.15 = $91.5
20x $9.15 = $183
See the potential? Even if you made a nice $50-100 a day after work it’s still some nice passive income.
Some people claim they are making up to $900 a day doing this. A great way to kick off the new year and make money online in 2016!
Keep in mind that the conversion pixel can calculate in other factors. This all depends on where you place the pixel and targeting for traffic that you do. The pixel works on actions so for example someone checking out or adding something to the cart. Whatever way you set it up etc.
You NEED to test adverts. Don’t just start 1 advert and hope to make bank. Start at lease 5 and let them run for around 2 days with a $5-10 daily budget per advert.
You then choose the winning ones and optimise them for better conversions. This will never work if you don’t optimise adverts or just do the 1 advert and pray method.
Everyone is trying to keep this quiet.
Because this is the new tee spring and it’s making money online. There is so much money to be made here because it can be upscaled like crazy. You are in control of how much you sell and make. You can use Youtube if you have a large following that will also work great.
I’ve made a lot of my online earnings off Facebook in the past, I’ll be getting back into the Facebook game with this method. There is room for everyone so I wanted to share this with my readers.
I will do a follow up case study of this once my partner has sold a decent amount and settled into the method. This is going to be the new how to make money online in 2016 and it even beats the 3 step income article I wrote!
