Free Plus Shipping Tripwire Offers

Forward: This person is not a client of mine and just a random person that asked a question. I generally advise any dropshipping marketers to sell high ticket products ranging from $2000 to $10,000. I’ve dropshipped products as high as $75k and up for industrial equipment that cost $18,000 to buy that my competitors were selling for $115,000 from their store. I generally don’t advise doing F+S unless you have a large team either outsourced overseas or local because it will be a customer service nightmare.

100 orders making $10 each time
1 order making $1000 each time
What is easier? Spending up to $1000 to make a sale or trying to keep your costs under $10 per sale?
Amateurs start with product research and then look at what people are buying.
People who sell high ticket look for people they want to serve and THEN they research products that those people buy.


Ecommerce related question from Siddharth P. Vancouver, BC for free Q&A call.

I have a store and we are facing problems with getting enough orders to be in profit. We are selling Free+Shipping with the product costing $9.95 and every added product $5 extra like $14.95 for 2 units, $19.95 for 3 units and so on. The store was doing really well in the months of November and December. The ad budget in those months was $300/day and we were regularly getting orders of $600-700. We even had a few $1000+ days in those months.
Things have changed dramatically now. January was a disaster as we even struggled to reach $400 on some days with $300 ad budget and on few days we went past $500 but never went past $600. In Feb the ad account was put under review by Facebook and after submitting some doc it was finally released after 2 weeks. We have reduced our ad budget to $100 and we are making about $147 but its still a loss and we need to a make a min of $160 to make any kind of profit. I would really appreciate all suggestions and help so that we can start making profit again.

Normally when I do a F+S offer it is using a product that costs less than $1 to buy and make up for that + whatever your cost per customer acquisition is ($2) so charge $4.99 for shipping e.g. credit card knife (e.g. did it with the folding credit card knife) and charge only enough on shipping to cover your cost for acquiring ‘buyer’ customer emails. Once you have a break even funnel, just continue to build it up. The point isn’t to make money on it but to grow your subscriber list. When you have a subscriber list of 10k+ emails there is a lot that you can do from there.

Once you have the subscribers, you can then market higher end products. Market low ticket items as you would a high ticket item that costs $1000 with nice videos and so forth and your conversions will go through the roof (since they are impulse purchases). When dealing with Facebook traffic you are interrupting customers who will mostly buy out of impulse or be willing to give their email to receive a free offer. With Google Adwords traffic on the other hand you are usually trying to position yourself for when the customer has an intent to buy.

$9.95 is high for a F+S offer. I think you’d have better results marketing a lower priced F+S offer even if you are losing some money on the front end. The real money is made on the back-end.

The bigger picture is attracting sales from people who are already spending money on larger purchases. Build a relationship with them through email, social media, video, and through other channels that your target market hangs around in. Webinars (especially automated webinars) are a great addition to any sales funnel. Eventually some customers will trust you and also buy your higher ticket items so be prepared to deliver your best. Get referrals, continue to tweak your offer/landers, and also introduce some new traffic sources… I recommend focusing first on Google Adwords and Facebook Ads.

Here is an example of what that might look like using a product I randomly picked that has high sales volume in online marketplaces.

You can do a lot with 500 new buyer leads! Every business can benefit from having such a funnel because there are unlimited ideas of creative offers for virtually every business out there. It’s how you monetize on the back-end that counts.

I recommend picking up a copy of Dotcom secrets by Russel Brunson. I don’t agree with everything in there but it is a good book. As an example he says for upsells, don’t sell more of what someone already bought but sell something complimentary. I’ve tested it many times and people will buy more of what they already bought as long as the offer is good. It also makes things a lot easier for inventory and fulfillment.

A good tripwire offer fulfillment service that I recommend for small lightweight items like jewellery is Just ask for Jason. You pay just a buck to get your items fulfilled. When you ship larger items use a service like Shipwire, Amazon FBA, Shipstation and look up other alternatives best suited for your product weight and type.

Once a front-end funnel and autoresponder sequence is set up, the ROI should drip over a few days.

Other things to look into.

Using new Facebook ad images and ad copy to prevent ad fatigue.

Retargeting ad – Dynamic.

Use apps like cart abandonment protector, Klaviyo,  upsell app (the upsell app by Bold Apps version is not as good as one we can custom build for your store).

Using software like, try segmenting your repeat buyers, plugging them into a custom audience (emails), and then setting up a lookalike audience. From there, serve the ads to your lookalike audience and let Facebook find buyers most likely to convert for you. You don’t need narrow targeting at this point. Just have your conversion pixels ready and run website conversion ads. Sales should start coming in again as they were.

If not it could be something else — maybe even friction on the checkout pages — so verify that.

If it is an issue of customers right clicking on the image in Google Chrome and doing ‘search google for this image’ and then seeing Aliexpress or another site selling it for less, that might be costing you conversions as well. I recommend taking your own product photos and also looking at your suppliers images. Often times when you dropship and they see you doing well they will hijack your listing via SEO, image SEO, main keyword + manufacturer SEO, and so forth. They (manufacturer sales agents) also tend to be on niche specific forums, social media (facebook messaging), as well as email spamming.

In the long-run it helps to have a better understanding of what makes a good manufacturer. Too many ecommerce companies rely on suppliers that are just competitors. But if you are not doing your part as the marketers, then don’t blame the manufacturers either (in general).

Take a look at the website’s reviews. Try searching for “brand + reviews”. Are there negative comments on your Facebook fan page? Never leave questions unanswered as it simply looks like the company doesn’t bother to respond. It wouldn’t inspire confidence in your customer support. Also, leverage existing customers by soliciting positive feedback. It may cost you some money in the front-end but remember, you are building a long-term business asset. By increasing trust, you are also increasing your conversion rate and retention rate.

Continue to build your fan base. Perhaps not directly on pages where you direct traffic from Facebook but on other pages, you can add exit intent popups with your product and a coupon code if they make a purchase. You can also collect an email or generate likes to your social profiles. Try to extract as much as you can from your paid traffic so you can reinvest and achieve higher ROAS.

Those should be enough for starters.

Examples of sites with low-high offers. Holla, Choxi, Gear Best, etc If you have good products and margins, you don’t necessarily need a break even funnel.

If you are smart and are thinking long-term then you’d probably avoid a F+S funnel altogether and just focus on high ticket/B2B sales. You can dropship anything so pick products with high margins that are selling well.

Ascend customers to higher ticket purchases over time.
Build trust and your average order value/LTV should increase over time.

Whats Up

As much as we’ve enjoyed helping small businesses over the past decade double and in some cases exponentially grow their revenues through digital advertising, we are no longer able to invest our time in that fashion. As such we decided to stop our agency to pursue other endeavors.

The minimum budget we work with is $100,000 and our goal is to generate at least $500,000-$1m in revenues or develop new products and demand. We invest in both paid as well as organic results such as SEO.

We also offer a performance based service for companies that want more leads.

Rates vary from $15-$1000 per opt-in lead from ad campaigns or on a percentage of sale.

We can drive enough volume to reach everyone in your marketplace through a multi-channel online and offline marketing strategy used by global brands but with a performance and results driven direct response angle.

We split budgets into multiple platforms because certain platforms allow us to negotiate better rates the more volume we do – rather than penalizing us.

Our clients see extraordinary returns on their investment not just in the quality of the leads we generate but also due to the demand that we create in the marketplace for their industries.

If you are interested shoot an email to to view some of our most successful case studies e.g. turning $1 into $10 everytime on autopilot.

DONT Skip These! Adwords Click To Call Ads For Pay Per Lead

My guess is that because nobody has really written on this angle yet that this post (while thin) will still rank in Google.

Give click to text or click to message ads a shot.

There are some industries where people will not answer their phones. This is true for almost any industry. People are busy and don’t like to be bothered when they are at work or home from work. By giving your potential customers the option to send a sms and read info at their own leisure, it makes it easy for them to decide whether or not they want to call you to get more info. This could result in 10-20% or more leads responding to their own initial inquiries. This not only reduces your ad waste by that much but also cuts down the time your sales team spends chasing those seamingly ‘dead’ leads.

My advice would be that you should have a separate phone from your personal one. Just saying.

Guerilla Marketing Strategies

Marketing is important. Marketing is not facebook updates or tweeting. It consists of hundreds of things and actually doing them until a synergy is created.

Guerrilla marketing is an advertisement strategy concept designed for businesses to promote their products or services in an unconventional way with little budget to spend. This involves high energy and imagination focusing on grasping the attention of the public in more personal and memorable level.

Would you rather spend $400 to make $50 or spend $5000 to make $20,000? It’s about profit – not cost. Guerilla Marketing is about low-cost marketing strategies. They are great for small startups and local services based businesses and the benefits are exponential for larger companies.

I believe marketing and advertising is about getting people’s attention and creating a good impression. Stories are memorable so if you can create a marketing piece that is clever, funny, shocking, or shareworthy then you can leverage it in so many ways. One of the first and most basic forms of guerilla marketing that I’ve used quite extensively was/is yard signs aka bandit signs. A simple $7 sign made on corrugated plastic can drive dozens of leads per day – hundreds of leads per month. Having multiple signs makes it even more effective. (Tips – use a call forwarding number and catchy tagline that is short and sweet) If you include a website use a separate landing page rather than your homepage. You can retrieve signs and move them from place to place. If a lead is worth $20-$100 and you have hundreds of leads coming in from yard signs for a cost of less than $100 that is pretty substantial in terms of profit/gain. Pull-tab flyers in strategic high traffic locations is another.

Guerrilla marketing when translated into online marketing is similar to ‘growth hacking’

Growth hacking is a process of rapid experimentation across marketing channels and product development to identify the most effective, efficient ways to grow a business. Growth hackers are marketers, engineers and product managers that specifically focus on building and engaging the user base of a business.

Growth hacking – Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Old Spice – sorry no link because their commercials are annoying but you get the idea

Getting offline marketing to go viral happens through word of mouth and getting the press involved. Getting online marketing e.g. Facebook posts to go viral consists of getting shares (in a nutshell). When you learn to tie offline guerilla marketing strategies with online viral marketing is when you can start to see some serious ROI that most of your competitors aren’t doing.

An off the cuff example that anyone can implement would be yard signs (or signage in general) in high traffic locations + Ad copy that sparks curiosity + landing page + Offer ( e.g. opt-in for free 4-part video series + free invitation to a business seminar valued at $100 + list of valuable resource links + free book giveaway…). There are several ways to test the viral component which you discover through A/B testing. This could involve a content locker on the giveaway where people need to share the post to unlock the content, or you could have a ‘share button’ after they opt-in. Make decisions with at least a 300 visitors and never stop optimizing from there. Increasing your conversion rates is sometimes as good as increasing traffic so don’t overlook CRO – very critical.

Don’t confuse the use of yard signs as being a guerilla marketing strategy. This is incomplete thinking. The use of yard signs is indeed a marketing tactic but that doesn’t necessarily make it a guerilla marketing ‘tactic.’ You can end up spending a lot of money on yard signs if you aren’t getting any ROI. In other words if you don’t have a good message to market match and aren’t generating leads then by definition it is not guerilla marketing. I am a fan of guerilla advertising when it produces profit and for the sake of maximizing an advertising budget. If another method costs more but produces a higher ROI in a faster/scalable manner then that is something of value. Most businesses don’t have a plan or something scalable in their business. Many leave their fate to chance. Hopefully that isn’t you. If it is you then your plan should be to get a plan.

Every business can benefit by having a roadmap or blueprint on how to get to the next stage of their growth as opposed to blindly aiming and hoping that something sticks. Sure, you can test but know that there are time-tested methods of growing a business in any industry. Just because it doesn’t work for you doesn’t mean that it doesn’t work. You just need to ‘steal’ what has already been done by others. 90% of what advertising companies do is steal old ideas and repurpose them into something relevant to current times (think the script for Avatar which was taken from Pocahontas). It happens in the movie industry, advertising industry, import industry, manufacturing industry, music industry, publishing industry, and virtually any other industry where smart business people realize that they don’t need to spend time and money reinventing the wheel when they can use proven concepts. There is nothing to be afraid of when you have a solid execution strategy. Other people will try to copy you but if you do things first and get PR, you may even end up getting more free publicity when people start to talk (and they do) that some marketing piece reminds them of the one created by your brand. All of a sudden you are credited as the brand that started that idea when all you did was take an existing idea and making it your own – maybe even better than the original. Reverse engineer and improve existing concepts that have been proven in the marketplace -preferably something evergreen.

One of the biggest reasons according to the SBA is that two of the main reasons that small businesses fail is due to undercapitalization and the lack of an effective marketing program. Not all marketing is created equal. Many small businesses throw money into advertising that has no hope of being scaled up. This is why most small businesses stay small. They don’t know where their leads are coming from, aren’t tracking their results, and don’t have a plan! When you know your numbers and have a plan, things become a whole lot easier.

If you haven’t done much marketing in the past, start off by trying a few different strategies that you know can work (preferably something scalable). If one form of marketing (1 of many) seems to be working then you can continue investing in it and then begin to explore other forms. Start small and scale up. If you know what your competitors are doing and think you can beat them then that is what you should be focused on doing. In some industries, there is a limit on the number of people looking for services each month. You can position yourself to get all or most of those leads yourself if you wanted to.

Do you know the top 3 most profitable marketing tactics are for your business? If it doesn’t involve online marketing then you are missing out on big growth opportunities. The vast majority of consumers look to the web to find products and services.

Step 3: $10,000 To $100,000

So here is step 3. Even if you were to just watch and see how step 1 works, you should be able to see how much better it is to have an online business as opposed to working 40 hours a week for someone else trading time for money.

To recap: Let’s imagine it costs $0.50-$2 to generate a targeted subscriber from your lead capture page.

1000 subscribers – $500-$2000 is the hypothetical cost to build this list. Now let’s suppose you make a really good offer that is worth 10-20x what you are charging for it. I’m not talking about trying to sell junk that doesn’t work. It has to be something you can attach your name and reputation to that actually works and has great feedback. How do you know if it is good? Simple. You offer it to a small segment of the list to try it out before an official launch. Those initial testers should be able to provide video testimonial that boost your conversion rates. If you sell a product that costs $10 then you only need 50-200 people to buy the product on the front-end to cover the initial cost of building your email list. That’s assuming they don’t buy any upsell offers. If 2 people buy a higher ticket product at $1000 then you only need to make 2 sales and your initial costs are covered.

How these funnels generally work is:


Step 1 covers the foundational elements and organic traffic methods that you should be set up on. Step 2 is about scaling through paid traffic. Step 3 is more about tweaking your existing funnel, creating new products, and looking for opportunities beyond buying traffic.

step 1 – $0 to $500/month

step 2 – $500/month to $10,000/month

step 3 – $10,000 to $112,000.month

Scaling up traffic can only happen with a good initial campaign setup. Make sure to be accurately tracking everything and collecting as accurate of data as you can. When you are doing $112k/mo the bidding happens in real-time and missing steps can be very costly. Invest in good tracking software, conversion rate optimization software:

Spend some time hiring better skilled staff to manage your accounts so you have time to develop new products. When hiring, note that 90% of training is done in the hiring process. You don’t want to spend all your time training someone unless they are an intern. When it comes to getting someone to ‘manage’ your business they should already come trained and know WTF they are doing. Save yourself the time, pain, and hassle of not having to deal with someone with no business IQ that doesn’t know how to run a business.

While you can be doing joint venture (email swaps/affiliate) marketing with others in step 2, you can go for bigger partners for step 3 as you likely have more credibility and a larger following. Use that to your advantage as it is traffic that doesn’t cost anything and can grow your subscribers/followers in massive waves.

Make higher ticket products, set up mastermind groups, get influencers together and form an event e.g. live seminar. You can even record the live seminar and sell the replay. If you do this try not to sell it for less than half the cost of attending live as your next live event might not have such a good turnout. Sidenote: the value of live events is in the people you meet while you are there as much as it is what is said on stage.

Look at more ways to scale and grow the business. Be part of mastermind groups and ask others who are more successful than you are what you should do next. Reddit subgroups and online marketing forums can work but you can also just use search engines. If you have the money pay someone for an hour of their time. Some of the top marketers charge tens of thousands of dollars for a 1 hour private call but that 1 hour can give you the knowledge and breakthroughs to making millions down the road. It may also end up saving you from giving up on your dreams.


Funnel Hacking Competitors

Go to a competitors website and buy their product using screencapture. See how the process works. Note the ad copy, calls to action, and landing page layouts. Model successful campaigns and you can save yourself a lot of time and money.


Target the right audience and you should get a 50-70% opt-in rate to your FREE high value webinar/ebook/PDF/email autoresponder sequence/etc. Actually, you shouldn’t really try and sell anything at all. Focus on giving value and there will be floods of people pulling their hair out trying to figure out how to buy your products. If you want to be successful online learn from people who are already making 8-figures a year. Join forums or study successful marketers. There are no secrets. You just have to believe that you can do it and go for it. I don’t know what else to say. A good mentor can help you get from point A to point B in record time.

Extra tip:

Here’s how you could potentially use Linkedin for B2B lead generation via Linkedin Groups. A free account allows you to create 10 groups, 20 subgroups, and send invites weekly with 100% deliverability for a total of 600,000 emails per week. If you need to reach a very specific niche you can buy data in the form of email lists and plug invites to the group but this is spam and not recommended. On the other hand, if people receiving your content are GLAD you reached them then some of the people might be glad you messaged them. The reason these strategies fail for the typical marketer is because they ASK without providing value upfront. The key to success online is giving incredible value upfront without asking for anything in return. This strategy is responsible for making one of my clients a 6-figure passive monthly income… and I’m convinced that it can work for any industry.
