5 Shopify Business Problems Solved
These were the most commonly occurring questions we’ve received this week…
Q) How Many Influencers Should I Utilize?
A) Begin With 1 At A Time
You goal is to identify a few that generate sales for you and scale from there. Basically the concept is similar to identifying winning products. We’re trying to find our winning influencers!
Q) Why Has My EPC Dropped So Much?
A) Black Friday Causes A Spike In Everybody’s Promos
Costs per click, and costs per impression will always be higher during the holidays especially Black Friday through Cyber Monday.
After the new year, costs per click and impression will begin to level back out. Additionally if your ads are highly targeted and engaging with your audience, FB will reward you with enhanced ad performance without breaking your bank.

Q) When Will You Next Visit The United States?
A) Team FSO Will Return To America In 2018
While certain team members like myself already live state-side, Rito resides in India. He last visited early 2017 and won’t return again until 2018. Rest assured when he visits next we’ll announce it and likely present opportunities to connect with us.
Q) Why Do I Feel Like There’s More To Implement?
A) There Always Is!
To this day, every day, whenever we browse a webpage, facebook group etc. I learn something new everything single day that I can apply to my business to further scale and improve my own entrepreneurial abilities. The learning will never stop so long as your invested and passionate about your business. As time progresses you will continuously improve as a businessperson so long as you consistently take action.
Q) Which Shopify Theme Do You Use?
A) We Use Shopify Booster Theme
We haven’t used any other themes so far. That said, Rito is currently developing a custom theme specifically for Shopify and Dropshipping businesses. We guarantee it will be the fastest, highest converting dropshipping theme available. Lookout for that official announcement video in the coming weeks.
Q) Where Has All Of Your Shopify Traffic Come From?
A) Facebook Ads!
Nearly all of our traffic and sales have been generated with Facebook ads. With the exception being a few sales from Instagram Influencers.
Q) Is It Ok To Have Text On Video Ads?
A) Yes and no.
You can have text on the actual video, no problem. You won’t be penalized for excess text on video so long as you implement a custom thumbnail. The issue is having less than 20% of the video thumbnail area containing text.
Q) Should My Ads Always Target Engaged Shoppers?
A) No, Not Always.
We create 4 adsets to test new products. Each with a $5 budget. We have some with engaged shoppers on 2 and the other two utilize different targeting without including engaged shoppers. We do this to vary our audience size. We like to keep our audience size between 100K to 1M people. We’ve had ads without engagement targeted outperform other ads targeting engaged users. Just depends on the ad, your copy and the product you’re promoting.
Q) Is It Ok For Products To Include Manufacturer Info?
A) Yes, That’s Fine.
Often times when a customer purchases from our store they will see something from the original manufacturer on their parcel. We’ve never had an issue or anybody return a package because of this. Therefore It’s a non-issue. All that matters is your customers receive the products they pay for.
That’ll do it for Episode 11 – Great work!
