  • Liquidation Advice
    by /u/a_w08 on May 14, 2021 at 12:42 pm

    I am currently looking to move some stock to make some space for some new stock coming in, but the normal advertising channels are not working (seasonality). Do you guys have any suggestions on how to liquidate stock without losing money (I am willing to let the stock go for cost, just do not want to be spending money to get rid of it). submitted by /u/a_w08 [link] [comments]

  • Has anyone tried podcast ads or sponsorship?
    by /u/mark8wr on May 14, 2021 at 11:46 am

    Personally, the only ads that seem to work on me are podcast ads. I don't surf the web as much as I did back in the day. I use the internet to listen to peoples' voices, and some of these ads just get me. I understand that podcast ads are paired well with classic google/social ads because no one is really going to your landing page (podcast.com/my-product). I also understand the price/barrier to enter issue. Looking for any info about how things turned out for yall. submitted by /u/mark8wr [link] [comments]

  • Should I pay $1000 for this guy’s course?
    by /u/joveezus on May 14, 2021 at 4:42 am

    https://instagram.com/sal_habibi?igshid=1y2ftxezc46i7 I heard of this guy, Sal, through high school friends who recommended him to me. His course offers 12 weeks worth of material, weekly optional zoom meetings to ask Sal questions, and 1 one on one zoom session with Sal himself. He has a YouTube channel of him saying how he became a 6 figure entrepreneur through Amazon in a year, and came from a hardship living on his parent’s couch and driving Uber. However, since this guy was from around my area, I have seen him once at my job a couple years back and he was flashing a $1000 Supreme/LV wallet which would’ve been before he was an Uber driver. Something doesn’t add up. If anyone knows of this guy and has heard positive things about him, please let me know. I am on the fence of buying his course. Thanks. submitted by /u/joveezus [link] [comments]

  • Chinese suppliers raising prices due to U.S. monetary policy

  • Thoughts on Switching Facebook Checkout Settings?
    by /u/jiggabot on May 13, 2021 at 8:22 pm

    I got an offer from Facebook today that they'll give me credit to run an ad worth $2,500 for free, if I just change my checkout settings on Facebook. I have a small online store and I linked it to a product manager in Facebook so that I could tag products on Instagram. My understanding of switching checkout settings is that if someone sees one of my products listed on Facebook or Instagram and they're interested in buying it, they would be able to buy it within the Facebook app, rather than being directed to my website. And in doing so, Facebook would collect a 5% fee off those transactions (the offer I received did say they would waive fees through June). Obviously, it's an intriguing offer, but I'm a little unsure. Questions for anyone nice enough to actually read this: What are your thoughts/experiences on using Facebook for checkout? Does this apply to Facebook and Instagram? Would I ever be able to switch Facebook checkout methods back to going to my own site? Is a single ad "valued at $2,500" really worth it? I've seen people pour money into Facebook ads and get almost no response. It seems like you have to run a couple campaigns and invest long term to really get Facebook ads to work for you. The weird thing about this subject is how hard it is to get people's actual opinions on this. Facebook has had so many arcane, weird initiatives with selling/ads that it's hard to tell what exactly I'm being offered and how it works. Anytime I actually try to Google the subject, the results are usually just horrible pages that are trying to game SEO or Facebook's own info on the matter. Any feedback is appreciated. submitted by /u/jiggabot [link] [comments]

  • Should I use CBO as a beginner for a one-product store?
    by /u/buffinman_ha9000 on May 13, 2021 at 6:24 pm

    I tried posting this on the dropshipping sub, but it was banned. Not sure if this is the best sub, if not, please guide me to one that'll be more of help Basically the title. Working on my first campaign, and CBOS came up pretty often. Just wondering if I should use it in my one-product store. I've done some research, and one source recommended I don't use it, as I want to target one audience (or something along those lines), but that's just one source, wanted to the other opinions. Here's my ad strategy (if it matters): 1 campaign with 5-6 adsets (still working out interests, if there are any tips, feel free to let me know), with a $5 budget for each adset, and 2 different ads for each adset (for testing) Not sure if that's the proper way to describe an ad strategy, so I'll be glad to clear up any confusion If there any improvements I can make to the strategy, please let me know. submitted by /u/buffinman_ha9000 [link] [comments]

  • Why can only US based businesses use USPS Stamps.com ??
    by /u/enadhof on May 13, 2021 at 11:36 am

    Has anyone managed to get a stamps.com (USPS) account set up to ship orders out of a 3PL? Our business operates in the US but is registered outside the US. Our stock is located in US 3PL's and according to Shipstation, stamps.com seems to be the best value for shipping orders to US customers. Only problem is they only seem to take registrations from businesses with US addresses and Credit cards? I managed to get around the US address and phone number but both debit cards failed on registration. I can only assume it's because the cards are from international banks? The cards use USD but still don't work 🤷‍♂️ Any advice would be appreciated. Thanks in advance 🙏 submitted by /u/enadhof [link] [comments]

  • Shopify or Ebay store?
    by /u/frankOFWGKTA on May 13, 2021 at 10:11 am

    I sell t shirts on eBay currently and they are selling well but at a slow pace. Is it worth me changing to a Shopify store and running ads. My worry is by selling on eBay i’m merely selling, not building a business. Does anyone have reccomendations? PS the t shirts I sell are very niche and appeal to a certain type of folk, they’re not just generic t shirts. submitted by /u/frankOFWGKTA [link] [comments]
