  • Yes, it still works. The most important thing is you know how to drive targeted traffic to the hot product for sales conversion.

    Whether it works or not is almost 100% based on the product. It is not going to work for generic wallets and belts or anything you can buy practically everywhere. It either needs to be something everyone is talking about, it has to solve a problem that is always on someone's mind or it has to have a "wow" factor (like, "wow, I've never seen anything so cool" or "wow, that's perfect for me"). And, it has to be at a price point that people will instantly click and buy it.

    THEN, it comes down to marketing it to the right people.

    No. Customers will not put up with 14+ day delivery anymore and they are becoming wise to the low-quality products sourced from AliExpress.

    However, dropshipping is still a viable business model. With a platform like Shopify, you have access to plenty of US based suppliers offering high-quality products at competitive products. You won't be able to beat someone like Amazon or Walmart, but you can still claim your fair share of the market. Just don't sacrifice quality for price.

    Yes, it still works but takes a lot of knowledge and experience to make it happen.

    My advice is to get a coach or an expert to set it up for you or $20,000+ to make mistakes and master.

      I hired Chuk to make 2 sites for us. He swore from the get go that he would make us profitable in 90 days or less and stated that in a signed contract.

      We waited 6 months for him to make us profitable like he promised and he never delivered. He spent over $10,000 of our money on adspend and did not make us profitable and just kept giving us excuse after excuse of why it hasnt happened yet and it will be proftable soon which never happened.

      Then after wasting 6 months of our time and $10,000+ of our money on top of what we paid him for building the sites, he agreed to refund our initial investment which was stated in his offer above as well as in his signed contract.

      Obviously a signed contract means nothing to this crook because for almost 3 months now he has been promising us we will get our money back and has not refunded us and then he up and disappeared completely and stopped responding all together.

      This guy is a complete and total Scam Artist who will steal your money and waste your time and ad spend for mediocre results that are NOWHERE near profitable as promised.

      Do yourself a favor and stay FAR FAR AWAY FROM THIS CROOK
