How Shopify and Dropshipping are Making Me Money

Last Update: July 31, 2019

MY SHOPIFY STORE IS GAINING TRACTION!

Hey all! So, let's face it, ONLINE SHOPPING is where it's at now! Yes, everyone is buying on the Net and it's a multi-Billion dollar industry! People are spending billions online and that amount is only rising!

So, right along with working on the Super Affiliate Challenge, I've been managing my Shopify store. After it's creation, I began adding high, trending products--130 to be exact so far--and it's getting a wide amount of interest!

I've watched countless Shopify success videos and have duplicated the advice from each one.

But, how does this relate to my WA website, you may ask?! Simple, I list it on my site with a link to my store!

SO MANY POSSIBILITIES!

The possibilities are endless as to how you can get the traffic to your store! Here are some of the ways that I do:

  • Pin each product on Pinterest, creating Rich Pins, Keyword Rich Content, and create new and related Boards for each.
  • I have my whole store on FaceBook, and have invited everyone to "Like" it. So, when someone sees a product they want to buy and clicks on it, they are taken right to the checkout in my store! (Shopify trains you to do this!)
  • I do FaceBook Ads targeting particular audiences that relate to the product I'm targeting. (This takes a bit of experimenting, but I am getting the hang of it!)
  • I created an Instagram account for my Shopify store, posting each product with Keyword Rich Content and Link.
  • Tweet each product on Twitter.
  • Post to LinkedIn.
  • Invested in a dot com domain.

A GREAT AVENUE!

So, in other words, I think a Shopify store with a specific Niche is a smart approach to another form of great income. You can even create a store around your current WA niche! Yes, adding opportunites for more income to your current business makes it that much more profitable!

So, besides affiliate links, WA referrals, AdSense Ads, etc., why not add a store to your site?! You never know who will happen upon it!


WHAT IS DROPSHIPPING?

When creating a Shopify store, you can also get a free account with Oberlo. Oberlo is a dropshipper platform that supplies the products and takes care of all the shipping, so you don't have any inventory!

You can find products on Oberlo at really low prices and add them to your store with a mark up price that you choose. Then, when someone orders that product, you simply go and purchase the product and make the profit!

Oberlo even sends out the necessary emails, updates to the customer, etc. All you do is purchase the product and then click a button when it's ready to ship.

WHAT DO YOU THINK?

There is a free trial at Shopify, so you can try it for free and then Upgrade for $30 a month, which is what I pay.

The businesses and websites we create here at Wealthy Affiliate can go in endless directions, leading to new and wonderful ways to expand!

So, get your creative thinking caps on and check out Shopify. The sales are coming in---just yesterday, I made $64.33!



I'm learning and duplicating the efforts of all the Shopify gurus out there, and am very excited about this venture that is now listed on all my sites!

Hi Erin,

I actually contemplated doing Shopify. Right now blogging and writing so many articles is a little difficult with a regular 9 to 7 (I work 10 hr days). I want to have my business be successful and thought maybe Shopify would help. I know it’s going to be a work, just like blogging but maybe I won’t have to create so many articles.

Thanks for sharing your experience. I will definitely look into more.

Sounds good, Ricia! I have a blog on my store, too, and am always working on the SEO. When writing my descriptions about each product, using keyword rich content helps, as well--just like with my website.

How do we use a WA website at Shopify Erin?

Shopify supplies the store website, but you can post it on your website here with the link, Jim.

I am very interested in doing something similar down the road, nice to see someone have success going this route. Did you create the website for your shopify store by yourself?

Hi Ronald and nice to connect! Yes, I created my own store. Shopify supplies templates to create stores right there on their platform. I also create client's websites, which I've been doing for over 25 years. I recently moved my business to WA!

Hi Sophia! Nice to connect with you here! Both Shopify and Oberlo have extensive training and a great support team if you get stuck. I've used them several times, as I've had questions along the way. I wish you all the best and let me know if you decide to give it another shot!
