How to find the people most likely to buy your Shopify products? [FREE GUIDE]

Shopify is hard as hell, it’s not uncommon to blow $10,000 to test 100 products, and lose $9000 in the process. When you ask people how do you target your products, most will always tell you BROAD. Which is total bullshit, and it’s a sure way to lose all your money really fast. (Unless you already spent a million bucks plus, and you have a trained pixel, but that’s another story not all of you starting out can proudly be in possession of).

So HOW DO YOU maximize your chances to succeed and find the peeps most likely to buy your SH*T? 😀    

Facebook audience targeting / interest targeting / keyword targeting coupled with the NARROW down function.

Let’s say we are trying to sling a cooking related product, going broad would mean targeting everyone in the country of U.S.A… thats a woman, maybe 25+ right? That’s like over 30 million people, too much. Even if you narrowed it down by using the “COOKING” interest keyword, it’d be way too broad. You see the way fb works is their algo will automatically throw anyone in that liked anything related to cooking, and this does not mean that person loves to cook; hell no. Maybe they watched America’s Test Kitchen once, and liked the show, or they are fans of Gordan Ramsay just because they ate at his restaurant. THIS WAY IS THE SURE WAY TO BANKRUPTING YOURSELF!

The right way to go is to go after the passionate people, you find them by starting with the broad keywords like COOKING, and then narrowing that down with RECIPES, and then adding in some MAGAZINES like Taste of Home, and even more magazines, like Cooking Light, and more magazines like COOK’s Illustrated Magazine.

We can use facebook’s audience insights and check affinity score to find related targets. We can also use Google and do quick searches for example….. For magazine’s just type top NICHE magazines, NICHE organizations, NICHE clubs, and the list goes on. Then you take these names, and add them into your targeting.

Here’s how cooking is looking for me, narrowed down through 5 layers:

As you can see, the audience is 12000 only – yes, yes I know when you talk to people they will say they love their audience to be 2-5 million, that is the sweet spot.   REALLY?   Why is that the sweet spot, do they explain?  Or do they explain how they got to that audience size?

You see,  the smaller the audience size the better as long as you are targeting and narrowing it to be the most passionate.   Facebook is so damn smart, that if you run ads to these guys and the product does well,  then you can generate a LOOKALIKE based on everyone that clicked through from this audience, and then you will have your 1 mill, 2 mill…. 5mill audiences that are very much like the people in your super passionate narrow audience.   And that is where scaling begins…..    

PS:  Make sure you start out with Website Conversion > PURCHASE objective, as Facebook truly knows who are the buyers so if you do the above and target purchasers you will be able to build a real nice lookalike audience.

PPS:  Retargeting people using dynamic ads is also highly recommended right from the start, as it will help get you the sales you need to scale and NOT GIVE UP!!  

PPPS:  Everyone that follows my blog iAmAttila knows that I REALLY don’t like “SHOPIFY” and drop shipping from AliExpress because a) Takes forever b) quality of goods is questionable.  These two things will hardly ever produce the happy customer, which means you can lose your fb account if you get too many bad reviews and you can also forget about returning loyal customers.  Loyal customers that come back over and over again is how you can turn your little side hustle of Shopify into a business with real employees.  

All the best

8 TIPS THAT WORK to increase your conversions right away in Shopify

People always ask, what are the best ways to improve conversions on your shopify product page. Here are 8 ones I knew off that really do work; and they are not even hard to implement. Conversion rate on your ecom store is the easiest way to increase your ROI, Facebook Ads costs always rise but onsite optimization can help compensate for the lack of cheap clicks.

1. Hide the menu on your product listing page, having too many places to click will mean people will start looking around – they need to focus.

2. Add testimonials in your product description of people holding your product, and how happy they are and shit with it. This will increase your conversions.

3. Make sure you add more graphics, order samples and then take shots of the product that is way better than the shit you find on aliexpress or taobao or whatever.

4. Get lifestyle photos made, try and get lifestyle photos made of the audiences that would most likely buy your product and show the product in those situations. Look on fiverr for peeps that can make lifestyle photos.

5. Use a spy tool like magicadz to find profitable Facebook Ads, and the stores. Look at their product listing pages for new ideas. These guys that have like 5000 comments on a product, and insane engagement and the ad has been running for 1-2 months know their shit. Try and model it.

6. Make sure you put the product details on the product listing page, size, weight, material, any other important info, ie color choices?

7. Experiment with different price points. You can do this by using Facebook’s split test feature, and then create different priced listings of the product on your store. You never know. Monitor CR.

8. Read up on Conversion Copywriting, and test a version of your product page where it follows a writing ‘template’ – problem -> solution/benefits -> customer testimonials

Cheers

How To Find Profitable Ecom Products & Their Facebook Ads That Are Making Money on Shopify

FREE Shopify Spying 101 & Competition Analysis Guide by iAmAttila

If you are into Shopify and Drop Shipping then you will love this guide. I am going to show you step by step how to uncover the winning products and all the ads used to promote it on Facebook.

I don’t recommend you Rip n Run the ads; as Facebook Algo knows very well who is the owner of the ad and won’t give you high quality traffic if you rip someone elses ads, thus you are doomed to fail.

Instead, use the ads for winning products to come up with your own variations and create similar ads.

To get started, you will need an account on the #1 facebook ad spy tool named MagicAdz.

You can get an account by visiting their website at www.magicadz.co

NOTE: In order to get accepted to magic adz, you need to apply the same way you would at any CPA Network. They only accept real internet marketers to keep out fraud. So don’t be shocked if they ask for some information like your skypeID to have a chat wit
h you!

Got your account and logged in? Great

The next step is to look for the left menu bar. We want to select to search for landing pages. We want to identify shopify only ads.

To do this, what you want to do is click the down arrow, and set the search paramter to look inside Landing Pages.

We have to use footprints associated with shopify.

Here are a few, you can enter these one by one to get different results:

shopify.com
cdn.shopify.com
powered by shopify

Here are the results (NOTE: Not all of them are products, some people are actually running ads to blog posts made inside their shopify stores,some are clickbait) – They are sorted by most shared:

Here are 3 ads I picked that are shopify stores.

The first one is hair care product. It is targeting women who love to look beautiful and especially enjoy having awesome hair. They use this model under different names from what I discovered to test what name and influencer profiles work best for them. It’s an awesome, awesome store as they are white labeling stuff in China with their own brand and making at least 300% ROAS. See how the total number of likes is LESS than the actual number on the ad today? That means since MagicAdz saw it, the ad received much more engagement! That’s a great thing it means people are talking about this, and most likely buying it since the ad is still going strong.

Here is another add, this time of a dent remover tool people are selling online. This probably makes them a lot of money else they would not still be running the ad. When the ad was first seen it had just 6000 comments, and today it has 42k!! 4400 comments and has been shared over 17,000 times!

Home Care and Kitchen stuff has done real well on Facebook forever. Here’s an ad that had 5k likes, 2000 comments, and 10,000 shares when MagicAdz saw it! You can see that the angles they used, and their video ads, and also the lander they used and shopify page wording!

TIP: If you are into shopify you def heard the finding shopify stores using the IP address trick. If not I pasted it below… anyway that method reveals a lot of mega brands in the top 1000. They aren’t likely the ones affiliate like yourself are running, or new people starting out with shopify.

It’s way, way easier and faster to spy using the method I shared above than to open each site one by one on the list from the ip trick; then make a list of the fan pages from the ad review screen inside magic ads.

Here’s how easy it is, let’s take the Lange products. I went to their fan page, on the left selected Info & Ads, then selected the country I want to see all their ads in. I quickly learned that they have like 6 live ads right now!

This awesome trick lets you view every ad a page publishes and also what countries the ads are running in!

How many times have you asked a friend that does well on drop shipping with Shopify to show you one of their products so you ‘get it’ ? Only to receive their reply “SORRY MAN, I DON’T SHARE MY PRODUCTS” (this isn’t a ‘friend’ in my books) but not to worry.

With the power of MagicAdz spy tool you can uncover profitable ads (maybe even find theirs) and use it as inspiration to create your own ads, and also your own product offerings.
