    You can get them free https://alidropship.com/themes/ but they work only with WordPress and AliDropship plugin.

    You don't need a license to start. Taxes depend on your country regulation rules.

    Yaros this may be a bit off topic but I think it could possibly help all of us if you had time to take a quick look. I was just looking at some shopify sites and found this one
    https://www.dropbox.com/s/97uac5f6ri7rdvo/moc1.PNG?dl=0
    mocelli.com

    What is odd is that it was started in july 2017 and now has 4,500 visitors per day and ranked at 138,000
    This could be bots visiting the site. I am not sure how to research that part. But if you get the chance maybe you could have a quick look and figure out how they rank this high in just a few months.

    +How did you target your Kittenrules audience?
    I wouldn't imagine someone who loves Kittens would be sitting there card in hand waiting to buy cat based jewelry, whereas someone who as told FB they are interested in fashion, might be sitting there card in hand, do you see my point?
    This is what is confusing me!

    Why don't you release the theme as a Woo one? Such theme on Envato cost between $59 and $89 and I guarantee you you'll sell allot of it.
    It is a great theme , I'm willing to pay for it if it can be used on a Woo site

    Sorry, just don't have time on it. My main source of income is dropshipping, not selling of the plugin or themes. And we do not use Woocommerce for our own sites.

    Once again, a great strategy.
    Can I ask you about the following entry on your blog?

    The results speak for themselves. With only $7 we got:

    • About 5,000 people reached
    • 329 post engagements
    • 154 likes
    • 19 shares
    • 180 post clicks
    I see your kitten rules site had 15k visitors in August. So you are either getting great results elsewhere of using a lot more than $7.
    Can you tell us how much your advertising costs for 15k visitors so we have some idea of the costs involved?

    Also, your site is making $4k per month
    so 15k visitors at 1% (buying average) means 150 buyers at say $25ish=$4kish
    Would you say your stats are like this or are they different?
    Once again, thanks for all your help. I think it really seems easy to copy but I am still having trouble getting there.

    The stats and spending budget vary from month to month of course. And we are using different strategies to obtain traffic. For this particular site I can also mention FB and Adwords ads, Instagram shoutouts. Now we are trying Pinterest as well.

    Hi again,
    So I suppose what I am getting at is, can someone with zero followers and strict budget do the same. Would I be able to get 15k visitors with say $100 budget?

    Also, your social rabbit plug in look very interesting.
    But how does it increase your followers and likes?

    Thanks Yaros,
    According to Similarweb stats, your Kittenrules site gets all its traffic from referrals (forums etc) but mostly Direct traffic (which means people typing the URL or saved bookmarks. And doesn't receive any social media traffic.
    Yet your blog doesn't mention Direct traffic does it?
    I'm confused as to where your traffic is coming from as you had 15k visitors in August?
    This is all according to Similarweb which may or may not be accurate of course.
    I'm know I'm being a bit nosey, but any help you can give us would be greatly appreciated by those of us still struggling to make any sales.

    I have tried every FB instagram tactic there is, and not one sale. Your posts are the only reason I carry on with this, so any glimpse as to what I'm doing wrong may change my journey!
