Some information to start
I spent ~$330 on FB ads before getting my first sale.
I only did about $3,000 my first month
Discouraged, I took a 2 and a half month break (I was in school and basically gave up for a little)
3 Major milestones I reached once I started up again
$2000/day average (Very recent; did $10,066 from 6/21 to 6/25)
Heres a quick summary of my store-
I started my store late October like the 20th or something and it went nowhere fast. I decided to put some real effort into it in November and did only $3000 in revenue. I probably was just around break even due to the start-up costs and poor conversion rates at the time. I then gave it a break as the store wasn't my main source of income at the time it was more of a passion project as I was still a senior in high school. From December first through February 17th
I only did $1798.50 as i think most of that was organic ( https://imgur.com/a/42E2Tfq )
Then I picked it up again and starting working on it ( https://imgur.com/a/XsH8LE7 )
My explosive growth moment ( https://imgur.com/a/2Xd21Bd )
was primarily due to increased customer satisfaction, and a drastic increase in repeat customer rate. Customers no longer complained about the 3-4 week shipping time from China and accusing me of scamming them, instead started getting their orders in a few days after ordering allowing me to follow up with them offering them additional products. I was able to offer such quick shipping because a friend of mine owns fulfillment/dropshipping company in the U.S. which allowed me to get my customers their products quickly.
I am now working on further establishing my brand and perhaps running ads on more platforms.
