Had to go through their support to have them approved. Now running fine.
Won't really make a judgement on any of the adsets until at least 2-3 days have passed.
Conversion rate and cost per purchase are pretty shit but that's not something I care about at the moment.
Gathering data is the name of the game. Got bare ATCs which is good to see.
Made minor website tweaks -> currency convertor, checkout page script
About 70$ net profit so far (got lucky with some $100+ orders)
Take aways -> selling to rich people who don't care about price is the best
Will try using a ViewContent lookalike audience tomorrow, never done that before.
Average order size is around 60 bucks and spent $110 on ads for the day.
One of my interest adsets is doing extremely well so will duplicate that for tomorrow.
On day 7, I will share some detailed stats, but so far everything looking 🔥🔥
I increased the prices of everything by $10 last night -> that could be a factor
Or could just be an off day in general. Won't change anything in terms of ads or the site
Even with 4 sales, im still way above breakeven today
Had to put out some fires -> issues with gsuite email setup and shopify payments getting disabled
Going back to original price from tomorrow
Take away -> way more sales on weekends than weekdays; ads not performing as consistently
Killed one of the low performing adsets yesterday and created another ViewContent lookalike adset.
My VC LLAs are not performing as well. Very high CPC. Will let them run for few more days
Next few days -> increase daily adspend
Scaling up my best adset more and more every couple of days
My next strategy is to scale horizontally and find a few more winning adsets
Still cant do ATC LLA... hopefully by March at least
Gonna create some video ads tmrw
Way more site visitors than weekdays = more sales
My focus for the next couple of day is to do some digging into PayPal. Don't want to get banned as I start to scale.
Next stop is 1k revenue/day.
Lets get the bread 💪
Sundays are my best performing days. Got some large order.
Spent whole day doing research on how to register for corporation.
Lot of my sales are from Mexico. Ali Express shipping time for Mexico is atrocious... need to figure something out
Definitely the worst performing day of the week.
Oddly got multiple abandoned checkouts today, way more than any other day so far. Even though I didn't change anything.
Set up Klaviyo for automated emails.
Expecting a stronger Tuesday.
Never thought I would get to the $5k mark so quickly...
Mon/Tue are usually my worst performing days, but this week's Mon/Tue did 2x in sales compared to last which is good to see.
Got an app to add tracking number for every Paypal transaction.
Really unhappy with my conversion rate so far (just above 1%). Definitely going to be looking into that the next few days and come up with some strategies.
Also going to try out Campaign Budget Optimization for fb ads. See how that goes
1. Scaling fb ads from $150/day to $300+/day
2. Tiring ads
3. Customer service
4. Easier order fulfilment and faster shipping
5. Legal stuff
#2 -> Will start paying to get ad creatives made
#3 -> Do not think I will be hiring VA until I'm doing at least 10k/month in profit
#5 -> Again, once I start generating enough revenue, will hire an accountant to sort things out
Fri/Sat/Sun are the best days.
Deleted some apps to increase store loading time.
Going to be doubling the budget for my Checkout Initiated LLA CBO.
It's scaling season.
Did 11 sales today with over $700 in revenue... on a monday!
Added a quantity breakdown spp to increase upsells.
Currently looking for an accountant to get some advice from. Very clueless in terms of financial/legal aspect of things.
-Set up a meeting with an accountant for Sunday
-A lot of my orders have already been delivered -> got no complaints yet 😃
-Some orders are very slow, getting 1-2 customer emails per day (not too bad)
March will be a crucial month.
Adding a new variation of my product to my store tomorrow at a much higher price.
Trying to play those psychological games.
Will also be starting my first purchase lookalike campaign, which should be interesting!
Weird since this is my first day trying PUR LLA and my sales went down instead of up.
Not gonna be reactionary.
Will let it sit for a while and make minor changes after tomorrow if needed.
First 5k week
Spent the last few days setting up a system that will allow me to scale faster without consuming too much of my time
Kind of nervous for the next few weeks.
Scaling has been hard so far.
But learning new things everyday!
Changed one of my suppliers due to poor quality products.
Automated most of the clerical work at this point.
Solely focussing on marketing and sales now.
Goal for March was 30k in revenue.
Looks like it will be around 20-25k instead.
With FB/IG outages yesterday, had my first loss day since Day 2
Paid heavy money to someone on Fiverr to increase my site load time
Excited to see the results
March is all about grinding and preparing my pixel for LLAs
Always play the long game
And who, going to increase price back up $5. And keep there
Also have to keep in mind that lately Wednesdays have been my lowest performing days
Close to 28k sales already for March, so well on track to hit the 30k goal.
Margins just under 30%.
Last few days been dealing with bank issues and cashflow set up.
Have big dreams for the next month. Lets see how it goes.
It's day 58, and I still do not use any upsell apps.
Didnt like the ones ive tried.
Will try few more this week to get AOV up.
I think I can easily hit the 100k mark this month.
Only obstacle would be cashflow...
-Added a "Sticky ATC" shopify app.
-Launched a new fb ad, with some new creatives.
-Will launch a new campaign tomorrow.
Hoping for a strong finish to the month before setting new goals for May.
ROAS has crashed and burned to the ground
Still doing a few hundred in profits every day... but no where near the 1.4k high.
Next week will be focused on just getting the ROAS up again.
New ads. New audiences. Let's go 💪
I want to go a bit lowkey on Twitter from now on and focus less on my results and more on providing value for others.
