    Hey guys how are ya. So I started my first Shopify store about 4-5 months ago and made about 14k my first month. My niche is great, I have a great fan-base and its 80%+ profit since im not using paid ads.

    All my traffic is free, coming from Social Media.

    That is an incredible earning in a short time. What you need to do is scale it up by: (1.) Start building mailing list or subscribers. To do this you need to get hold of some gifts to entice them. You can build variety types of list, specifically for each niche. Then you can start updating them about your store while at the same time give them good content. These will be your client that you can market to anytime.

    (2.) Since you have gained so much through social media, give back by buying traffic, for example from Facebook (But through pages you'll create for each niche). Also Twitter, but remember, each time it is better to build list.

    (3.) another thing is to submit to search engine, using professional services. Hope this helps, and congratulations!

    Would be interested to know what niche are you targeting and on what social website you build up this fan base at?

    Hi Patrick!:

    Your earnings are incredible for this short time you have been running your shop! Glad to hear you things are going well.
    Next step you should take is start getting more traffic from a different source that is not from social media. For this, you have to start creating good campaigns at Google Adwords, Facebook Ads...etc.

    Don't know if you've considered YouTube as a way of getting more traffic. Of course, there is always an upside and downside. One downside is that you need to have many subscribers for your channel, but seeing that you made good progress I don't think that would be much of a problem. Having a YouTube channel can increase traffic if done right. As some have also stated, having a mailing list works great as well.

    I recommend you to develop a advertising strategy. The channel could be Google adwords, google display ad, youtube, facebook and instagram (since you get your traffic from social sites).
    And I think you should do it yourself, not through some agency.
    First you should only use 10% of the benefit on advertising. I recommend you should only focus on 2 channels which you think is most appropriate. optimize the ads, read articles about them on blogs and forums to assist yourself.
    Then, when the result become better, you can raise the money and plan advertisement campaigns.

    Great sales dude!
    It seems as though you are more asking about how to convert more sales, rather than generate more traffic? Most replies here appear to be focusing on the latter.

    From my experience, driving more conversions is all about two things: (a) the product, (b) the process.

    Regarding (a) - hard to give much advice without knowing more about what you are selling. But is your range wide enough? Are the options within each product wide enough (e.g. sizes)? Have you got clear explanations and enough photos showing exactly what the product is / what it does / why they might want to buy it?

    Regarding (b) - How good is your landing page, i.e. is the process from seeing the product to checking out very clear? Is it clear what payment methods you accept? Does your site feel safe and have you got icons showing that you accept secure payments?

    These steps are all things I've helped clients with, to make people trust the site more and understand the product more, and therefore make them more likely to buy.

    Keep us updated on your progress!

    the good social media is not the sale of goods at a low cost but also has a very good brand spread

    What´s your demografic? 20-28, 28-35?

    Once that you could do a youtube video and use their promotion service. Although you may want to check who much could it cost you before spending money
