s told to ShopBase by Aaron Jackson. From how he started, to the point of losing A LOT of money, then gradually learned and achieved the goal for the monthly revenue.
When I first started dropshipping via Facebook, I used to have tons of problems regarding Ads setup. It was like a house of cards. I’d get things running, but I had to be very, very careful about everything I did to make sure one little thing didn't go wrong that would just take everything down.
What I needed was a Checklist to make sure nothing goes wrong, that everything is in its right place and if things happen to go south, I'd know how to identify the problem.
Shareing is caring, I wanted to share my 3 key things when setting up ads campaigns with fellow dropshippers and those who are about to start.
The cost for advertising (CPM, CPC, CPA) can be super high and bringing back no profits when you can’t identify your targeting audience. Plain and simple.
Take detailed notes on your customers personas, for example: genders, ages, living areas, behaviors, habits,... Answer these questions
Once you are clear about who you’re selling to, your ad spend will decrease remarkably.
Example: I dropship high-end office shirts for men.
Now, targeting people who are interested in online shopping is just too obvious, anyone would do that.
I know my audience are high-income, so I target on more specific interests: People who like Golf, Tennis, Cigar, Casino, etc.
>> Be as clear as possible about your customer personas, and your Ad campaign will take effect in no time.
There are 4 main parts of an ad copy: Opening - Explanation - More Information - Call to Action
One or two Call-to-Actions that sound urgent: "Time-Limited Offer for The First 99 Orders starting from Today to …” or “$200 Discount for Today’s Order Only"
Always, I mean, ALWAYS, have variants for A/B testing.
Not only for better performance.
But it's also for your learning process over time.
What I usually have are:
After running for a day or two, I will already be able to measure the effectiveness of each test, and choose the most effective one, while "stopping” the others.
