My First $100k Online

5-minute read Apr 28, 2020

Getting Started

I'm sure many of you reading this article right now are thinking "$100k?! I'm older than this kid and I barely even got one sale!!"

Listen.

You're not as far as you think from hitting it big.

Remember: you're always just one product away...

Now that all of your limiting beliefs are GONE, let me tell you exactly how I did it.

At the time I was running a mirage of stores. You name it, I've done it. One product stores, niche stores, general stores, niche hybrids, I've tried them all.

But for this particular product, I went with a one-product store with a niche-style name (Ex. Doggy World but only selling one dog toy)

This gave me the freedom to add upsells to maximize average order value (AOV) and even launch new products in the future.

How I Found My $100k Product

To find my winning product, I searched the BIGGEST dropshipping stores that I knew of and looked at their best sellers using the "Commerce Inspector" chrome extension.

I found a product that was high on their best-seller list, but they weren't advertising it!

This was SO fascinating to me

These guys aren't event actively advertising this product yet it's #3 on their best selling list!

I knew it could sell well with a good advertisement.

I headed over to Google trends as well and this product was peaking in the Summer every year (I started the store in March) so I was just about to hit the massive trend.

Designing My Store

I had a very simple store. Booster theme, VITALS app, 5 bullet description + reviews...that's it!

Most importantly though, it was super congruent. From the fonts to the color scheme, it looked like an established brand already.

Launching Ads & My First $1k Day

I made a simple ad with Premiere Pro and launched my Facebook ads to start at midnight.

I'm not going to lie - I did NOT think this product would be a winner!

I thought this would just be another failed product.

I woke up the next day to a sale!

By the way...first sales on a new store are always exciting, no matter what level you're at.

I was profitable 6/7 days for the first week.

Then I made a BIG BOY MOVE and launched a high budget CBO with my best performing cold audiences and told myself I won't look at my Shopify dashboard for the whole day.

I came back that night to see $800 in sales!

Very profitable at almost a 3x ROAS for the day.

I knew that I had a winner on my hands but I was worried that I wouldn't be able to scale it properly.

That's when things REALLY took off...

I took ANOTHER bold move and decided to offer my mentor a 50/50 split in my store.

Scaling Up To 6 Figures In 45 Days

I have proof of concept, I know this product can be a big winner, but I've never even used a single LLA (Lookalike audience) before...how can I expect to be successful scaling with so little experience?

So I decided to reach out to one of my mentors, and this is how the conversation went.

I showed my mentor my results that I've had with this product, scaling it to $1k/day by myself.

He saw my ads and the potential that this product had and asked me this question:

"Want to scale this bad boy together 50/50?"

Initially, I was hesitant, but because I KNEW this guy was legit, I went in 50/50 with my mentor.

Long story short, he showed me what it takes to scale a product to $100k+ in a short amount of time.

That mentor played such a big role in my success.

And now, almost two years later, I understand that.

I want to be the person that my mentor was to me.

Someone that you can ask questions, someone that will help you have your BREAKTHROUGH.

By Now You're Probably Thinking "Oh Great This Guy Is About To Pitch Me On Some Bullsh*t"

Listen closely.

I know that the Ecommerce space and especially the dropshipping space is full of a lot of scammers.

I've personally been scammed out of $20k and a "mentor" who didn't give a flying f*ck about my success.

Been there. It sucks.

And I can also tell you this: the fastest way to see results in dropshipping is by:

  1. Having a mentor
  2. Having a group of people you can learn from going through the SAME struggles as you

I've got a 9-week program specifically designed to get you to $1k/day and beyond. Here are some things you'll get as a part of the program:

  • 9 weeks worth of content on how to find winning products CONSISTENTLY, designing your store, and scale to 6 figures with Facebook ads
  • An active Facebook group filled with people going through the same struggles as you
  • Access to all my resources that I use to scale my stores profitably (none of the revenue only bullshi*t!)
  • Live 1:1 calls every week so you can ask me LITERALLY any question you have and I'll do everything I can to help
  • Featured guests from big names in the Ecom space

Yes it's paid, and yes it costs more than a few hundred bucks.

Let me make myself clear. 

If you're not willing to invest in yourself, then I DON'T WANT YOU IN THE PROGRAM!!

I don't want anybody in there that doesn't want to be there.

But if you want in and you're ready to invest in yourself, oh boy are you going to love it.

The results have already been wild.

I don't want to give away too much, but you're more than welcome to check out this free webinar here (and YES it's going to be live, I only do them occasionally.)
