How To Start a Dropshipping Business In 21 Days ๐Ÿ’ป๐Ÿ“ˆ๐Ÿ’ต


– So at Drop Ship Lifestyle, I teach you how to build
a lifestyle business. And as Wikipedia defines it, a lifestyle business is a business set up and run by its founders
primarily with the aim of sustaining a particular level of income and no more. Or to provide the foundation
from which to enjoy a particular lifestyle. So kind of loaded there because what’s the
lifestyle you want, right? And people do generally
understand that concept though because everybody wants
something else out of life, whether it’s more time, whether it’s more money, whether it’s a hundred thousand dollars, million, ten million, people
want different things. They want different lifestyles. But then the question becomes
with Drop Ship Lifestyle and the Drop Ship Lifestyle model, how much time do you
actually have to put in to build a lifestyle
business using this model? And there’s a couple of reasons why that’s tough to answer. The first is because it’s just illegal to make any income claims and I don’t wanna go to jail. So I can’t tell you it’s gonna take you X amount of time to make
X amount of dollars. And honestly, even if it wasn’t illegal and if I could just say whatever I wanted, the truth is that the time it takes one person to get results could be drastically
different than somebody else. That could be because
of previous experience. That could be because of work ethic. That could be because of bad timing or life circumstances or a million other
combinations of reasons. But what I can say is
with Drop Ship Lifestyle, we have a 21-day launch plan. We give it to members of our community at Drop Ship Lifestyle with the goal of having
them be up and running and ready to make sells in only 21 days. And the good new is, that’s not 21 days of
waking up at 4:00 a.m. And working till, you
know, two in the morning. That’s with putting in a few hours a day. So yes, realistically, I
think there’s no reason why anybody, even if you’re brand new, cannot start a dropshipping business that can get sales within only 21 days, again, putting in a few
hours of work per day. So in this video, I’m going to explain how those 21 days are broken up and kind of how where
I think you should put your time each day, to
again, be ready to go and start your own dropshipping business that’s ready to make
sales in only 21 days. So let’s get into it, in today’s episode of Dropship Weekly. (bright music) So days one and two are
all about niche selection. And what I want you to do is make a list. Honestly, this could be like in your phone and the notes app. I use Google Sheets. But I want you to make a
list of 50 possible niches that you can sell in. Now key point here, is
the they should meet my niche selection criteria. If you’re not familiar with that, I will post a link to different resources I’ve made about that. But quick overview, price
point has to be right. They have to sell to the
right type of demographic. And there cannot be brand loyalty. But again, I want you
to brainstorm 50 ideas. And yes, I really want you
to take two days for this. Okay, because again, I’m
assuming you’re gonna do this a couple hours a day. And there’s a ton of ways to get ideas. You can look around your house. You can go to shopping mall and just look at like different
items in different stores, or you know, different items
in the middle of the mall. I mean, there’s opportunity everywhere. Maybe you’re walking in and
you see a car drive by with, you know, huge rims on it. You think, you know what? That’s something that might work. Let me look into that. But at this point in the beginning, again the goal is just to
get these ideas onto paper or into your phone or onto a Google Sheet. Have 50 of them and spend
two days working on that. Now what we’re gonna do on
days three, four, and five is what I refer to was market research. And what we’re doing
here is taking that list that we just put together, and we’re putting each of
them through a series of tests to see, do these actually make sense? Is this actually a good opportunity? Because remember, in the beginning, it’s just getting those ideas out and having them listed. Now, we’re diving deeper. So we’re looking into things like demand. We’re looking into things like, can find at least 20 possible suppliers? We’re looking into things like, really, how much competition is there? And of course there’s
gonna be competition, but is this something that’s just like, you know, there’s a few
brands and everybody sells the same stuff? Because if it is, it’s
not gonna pass our tests. So those days, again,
three, four, and five, you’re doing your market research and you’re making sure that
when you actually pick one out of those 50, because
you’re not gonna sell them all, you’re making sure that when you pick one, you’re giving yourself the best chance. And this is also why I don’t recommend thinking of like three
ideas and picking one. Because if you have three
options to choose from or you have 50, chances
are if you have 50, you’re gonna have a better
chance of finding one that is better, right? Give yourself more opportunity, so on days three, four, and five when you’re doing that research, you can actually have a better
chance of finding a winner. And don’t think there’s any limit to this, like how many you can find. I have lists of thousands and thousands and thousands of niche ideas. And it’s something that
as you get comfortable, you know, looking for and
as you get an eye for, you will literally see
opportunity everywhere. Now what I want you to
do on the end of day five is actually choose which niche
you’re gonna proceed with. Okay? Keep your list, but pick one. And that’s going to be yours. And then on days six,
seven, eight, nine, and 10, you are gonna be building your website. Yes, I want you to spend
five days doing this because guess what? If you’ve never built a website before, it’s gonna be painful. There gonna be a learning curve even if you’re going through
my Dropship Blueprint which by the way, if you’re not
part of Drop Ship Lifestyle, go to dropshiplifestyle.com/webinar. I have a free training there. It’s about two and a half hours long. And I tell you how you can get involved with my program at a good discount. So dropshiplifestyle.com/webinar. But again, days six,
seven, eight, nine, 10, you are building your website. You’re signing up for Shopify. Okay, shopify.com/dropshiplifestyle. You’re going there. You’re making your account. You’re setting up your content pages. So your about us, your privacy policy, your shipping and returns. You’re uploading what
I call demo products. So you have a few things on your store that your future suppliers can see. You are going through and
doing things like uploading a image to your homepage. You’re creating your email
address, @yourstore.com, so it looks professional. You’re making it so that, honestly, if somebody went to it, they would think, oh, this is a nice-looking website, right? You’re not just throwing
together some crap, but you’re spending five days,
again, a few hours a day, getting comfortable in
the Shopify ecosystem and building a website that’s presentable that you would be proud
to show somebody else. Now what I want you to
do at the end of day 10 is remove the password
from your Shopify store. The way it works, when you
first make an account with them is they have it locked behind a password. So if somebody goes to your
URL, they can’t see it. And that’s because they know
you’re gonna be building and it’s not gonna be, you
know, ready for the public. But by the end of day 10, it
should be ready for the public and you should remove that password and have it so everybody
in the world can see it. And the reason you’re doing that is because days
11, 12, 13, 14, and 15, again five days for this as well, you are going to be
reaching out to suppliers so that you can actually
have real products to sell. And the reason we build the website first is because the suppliers are
going to want to see it, right? You can’t just call them and say, hey, I’m thinking about selling tripods. Can I sell your stuff online? They’re gonna say, okay,
where are you calling from? And if you say, well I
don’t have a website, I’m thinking about building one. They’re gonna say, sorry, we’re not working with anybody right now. So we call them after this, right? And days 11 through 15, we
have these conversations. We tell them who we are,
where their calling from. We tell them why we would
like to sell their products. We tell them what we
know about their company. And what we’re doing is trying to get them to send us applications so that we can legitimately sell their products. Now what we do is, as soon as
they send those applications, we’re filling them out, we’re
sending them right back. As soon as anybody agrees, then boom. Then we stop making calls. We start working with the
people who we can work with. And what we do is try to get our first
five approvals by day 15. So hopefully you have at
least 20 different companies you’re reaching out to, but you want at least five of
them on board within 15 days. Again, paperwork signed. You wanna get back from
them product photos, descriptions, pricing, all
those things you’re gonna need to upload those products to your website. So again, by day 15, you
want five supplier approvals. And the reason that’s so important is because days 16, 17, and 18 are all about optimizing
your website for conversions. At this point, nobody has
been able to buy from it, you don’t have real products for sale. So what you’re doing on these days, 16, 17, and 18, are uploading those products from the five suppliers
you got approved with. You’re enabling Shopify payments so people can actually buy. You’re removing the demo
products that you had. And really what’s so important
is you’re going through every page of your website
and triple checking it. Make sure your checkout process works. Make sure when somebody
clicks the contact us button on your webpage, it goes
to the contact us page. Make sure all the links
that you had put on, back when you built your
website, actually work. And you’d be surprised how
many people just never do this. And it’s really ridiculous because like even though
businesses are simple to build, they are real businesses. And the way I can kind of
compare this to something in the real world is let’s just say, you know, somebody was opening
like a pet supply store down the block from your house. And you wanted to go and
buy dog food or something. And they opened, right? It said open on the
door and you walked in, but the register didn’t work, so they couldn’t accept credit cards. And there were three aisles of products that were completely empty. And they had nobody in there
to answer your questions about why nothing worked. And how long would that business last? And it’s funny because people build their websites like that. Because they think like, oh,
this is just the internet so I don’t have to put care into anything, but you do. So in these days, again, 16, 17, and 18, you’re uploading products. You’re setting up Shopify payments so you can accept money. And you’re checking everything just like a real store owner would do before their grand opening. You’re getting it ready
for the grand opening day. Now that’s because days 19, 20, and 21, this is when you’re actually
getting people to find you. First thing first, get Google
Analytics on your website. Enable e-commerce for analytics so you can actually know
where sales are coming from, when people buy. Then you’re setting up
a Google Ads account. And you’re setting up your
first Google Shopping campaign. You’re also setting up
your Facebook Ads account and you’re making sure
that the Facebook Pixel is on your website. And you’re setting up a very, very simple Facebook campaign for remarketing using dynamic products ads. What this means is now,
you’re gonna have the two, probably the most profitable
campaigns you could have, one in Google and one in Facebook. The Google is in Google Shopping and then people are gonna find you. They’re not all gonna buy
right away, unfortunately. But they’re gonna go on Facebook and you’re gonna have your
Facebook dynamic product ads set up so the people
come back to your website and can buy. Now listen, that’s 21 days. That’s a few hours a day. I don’t care if all you
can do on the computer is send an email right now,
if you’re not technical at all because I’m not either. You can figure that out. You can get that working. Does it mean you’re done
and you’re set for life? No, it means you now have your foundation. It means you actually can get visitors and sales and be profitable. But now you get into building mode where you’re going back. You’re adding more suppliers. You’re adding more traffic channels. You’re optimizing your website even more. You’re optimizing your Google campaign. Maybe you’re adding in
more Facebook campaigns. But you don’t need all
that from the beginning. If you wanna know how long does it take to build a dropshipping business? The answer is you could
definitely do it in 21 days, working only a few hours a day, even if you have no experience. Now obviously, the whole
process is a lot easier if you’re learning from somebody that has experience, that’s
giving you templates, that’s giving you their model. And that is exactly what I
give at Drop Ship Lifestyle. So if you’re not a member yet, again, go to
dropshiplifestyle.com/webinar. The page looks like this. You can get register
there for a free training. It’s about two and a half hours long. And at the end, I show you
how you can get enrolled in Drop Ship Lifestyle for
a really, really good price. Plus, get live monthly
coaching calls with me in small group settings where I can answer any of your questions in detail. And really, if you’re watching this because you’re not sure if dropshipping’s the right model for you yet, but you do wanna build
a lifestyle business. You know, this really is, in my opinion, the best lifestyle business there is. There’s a few reasons. One is just the flexibility. Like you could run these
businesses from anywhere. I lived in Southeast Asia for years, in Thailand, in Vietnam. You know, just all over there. I’ve traveled like non-stop
for the better part of a decade. And I’ve done it because I work online with these businesses. Also, it’s super inexpensive. You can get started for
like a couple hundred bucks. I’ll link to a video I’ve
done on that as well. It’s easy to start. Again, follow a system. It’s not rocket science, it’s just work. So if you have a good work ethic, there’s no reason why you can’t succeed. If you’re lazy, then guess what? Nothing’s gonna work. And also, you know, again, with our community, I’m
gonna keep talking about it because it is the best. We were voted Best E-Commerce Course by Shopify for a reason. Lot of supportive people all around you when you’re part of Drop Ship Lifestyle, whether it’s me, the team, our coaches and other members. We’re all here to help
celebrate each other’s success and hopefully you wanna be a part of that. If you do, go to
dropshiplifestyle.com/webinar. Get enrolled, and I will see
you in Drop Ship Lifestyle. And as always, if you got
value from this video, please do give it a thumbs up. And leave a comment below to let me know what you’re
biggest takeaways were. So thank you everybody, appreciate you and I’ll see you next
week in Dropship Weekly. (bright music)

  1. Great video ๐Ÿ”ฅ๐Ÿ”ฅ

    I can't think of a better business model for anyone to get into. Don't hesitate to start. Push through barriers. And you will live a life that 99% of people can't ๐Ÿ’ช๐Ÿ’ช

  2. Excellent as always Anton. Iโ€™ve thoroughly enjoyed taking my time and learning everything I can from your blueprint over the past several months

  3. Thanks for the video! I have a store and sold over $11,000 worth of aliexpress products but have moved away from china suppliers. The last two days I have been contacting suppliers off my master list and got a few applications sent in… got rejected a few times. I am a college student, I can't afford the dropship blueprint but if it went on discount under $800 I would buy it!

  4. Most people won't understand how powerfull and structured this is. And with no Lamborghini FB ad fluff.
    Thank you Anton!

  5. When dropshipping with domestic suppliers, how do the order notifications reach the supplier? Do you have to inform them manually? Or is there a semi-automated way to organise the transaction?

  6. I have to tell you that Iโ€™m trying to find worth information about dropshipping business and most of the videos give more publicity than information to begin in this field. You're one of few people that really help me and give me really worth information. Many thanks!

  7. Anton,

    It would be really really helpfull if you did a video about angry customers: what are common reasons for a DSL store to have an angry customer, how to protect yourself legally, how to deal with that customer (what posture should you take), and how to calm him/her down, or even turn the situation around and make them a happy customer.

  8. Love this.

    โ€œIf you have a good work ethic itโ€™s going to work if your lazy nothings going to work.โ€

  9. If you are beginner in dropshipping. We can create a store for you according to your requests. We're professional Shopify store developers, so that's all we do. If you're interested please contact us: [email protected]

  10. Like many others commenting on this video, I'd like to thank you for taking the time to make this a feasible option for people that don't have any prior experience in dropshipping

  11. Hey guys I started an online store yesterday and still havenโ€™t gotten my first sale ๐Ÿ˜ž compass-lifestyle.com
