My Low Budget TikTok Ads Dropshipping Guide

My Low Budget TikTok Ads Dropshipping Guide

In just 72 hours, I was able to turn $ 50 into $ 500 using this low-budget ads testing strategy for TikTok. Today, I will be sharing the exact steps and strategies I used to achieve this.

Step 1: Choosing a Winning Product

The first thing you need for your TikTok ad campaign is a winning product. I found viral boyfriend sweatpants on TikTok, which had hundreds of videos featuring the product, some with millions of views. I imported the product from AliExpress to my Shopify store.

Step 2: Creating a Branded Store

Having a well-designed and branded store is essential. I used a pre-built theme that allowed me to easily fill in the blanks and automate the chat feature using GPT technology. If you want a copy of this pre-built theme, you can join my Discord (link in the description).

Step 3: Setting up the TikTok Ads Campaign

  1. Create a new campaign and choose "website conversions" as the campaign objective.
  2. Enable the campaign budget optimization (CBO) feature and set the budget to $ 50.
  3. Choose your TikTok pixel and optimization event.
  4. Select TikTok as the placement for your ads.
  5. Disable comments, video downloading, and sharing.
  6. Choose your target locations, age group (18+), and leave the gender and interests broad.
  7. Set the budget and schedule for your campaign, and enable day parting if desired.
  8. Review and submit your campaign.

Step 4: Uploading Videos and Writing Ad Copy

  1. Download multiple videos featuring your product from TikTok, PP ads, and the TikTok Creative Center.
  2. Upload three of the best videos to TikTok for your ads.
  3. Write compelling ad copy that follows TikTok's guidelines. Avoid using specific promotional offers that can be easily searched for.
  4. Paste your website's URL, preview the landing page, and ensure it takes users to the proper product page.
  5. Uncheck the box that allows your videos to appear on the Creative Center.
  6. Submit your ads.

Step 5: Monitoring and Analyzing Results

Use the Ads Manager and True Profit to monitor the performance of your ads. Keep track of metrics such as purchases, cost per purchase, CPM, cost per click, and click-through rate. Ensure that your cost per purchase is below your break-even point.

Step 6: Scaling Up

Once you start generating sales and seeing positive results, you can consider scaling up your ad budget. Increase your daily budget gradually and continue monitoring your performance to maintain profitability.
