All, Not sure how I came across Unscripted. Albeit i found it very inspiring and felt the sense DeMarco was speaking directly at me. Anyone else have this feeling???

Currently struggling thru a shitty 7-5 with little incentive.

Worked my a$$ off working overseas.

Getting into e-commerce at the moment.

in Orange County California, if anyone is around to brainstorm or bullshit

thanks

Hello and welcome.

Do you have a specific niche already in mind?
Some stuff I’m trying to brand is related to skateboard niche with soft goods and hard goods. Thinking just Shopify utilizing Facebook ad stuff. I know retail is pretty tough.

other FBA and Shopify is around Safety related equipment, Safety Gloves, Glasses, Vest etc...

You'll find that finding a good niche is a very iterative process. You might start with something In mind and end up with something else.

Same with Facebook ads. I've done Facebook ads here in Mexico and in the US as well. There's a huge difference in CPC but it's a totally different market. As with any ad, it will require retargeting, AB testing and so on. Try offering something for free in return for contact info so you begin building your list of leads. This can be a discount, e-book, guide, etc.
