High Ticket Products vs Low-Ticket Products?

So, there are popular dropshipping experts, gurus, that talk about high-ticket items being the best. Well, I don’t think they are. For me, low-ticket items specifically Free + Shipping have been best. I am very honest and clear about that but of course, both can work. So, I think the low-ticket items are easier to […]

Are your best selling products your most inexpensive products sold on your site?

And eventually, you’ll have that first product that just takes off […]

To create a lookalike audience in FB ads do you have to have 100 sales from customers in 1 country? I’ve reached 100 sales (not all from US) but when I try to create an audience it says my sample size is too small. Anyone with any knowledge on this?

I used to export abandoned carts from Shopify and use that. I believe that option is no longer possible (or not as effective anymore). You can create a custom audience based on the actions people took that were recorded on your pixel. You’ll then create an LLA based on the original audience

How to Handle Customer Support

So the number 1 rule, I picked this up from a form once and I’m stuck with it. Apologize a lot. Apologize for everything even if it is not your fault. If the product gets stuck at the customer, apologize for it. Whatever happens, just apologize. It won’t solve a problem but it will, it’s […]
