I guess like a lot of people I’m always thinking about Amazon. I mean, how do you compete with 2 day free shipping on virtually anything that’s available to buy online. I’ve tried Shopify w/AliExpress in the past and it didn’t go well. I think in the US market there is just no way to compete with Amazon. I do think there are huge opportunities in other countries though such as Russia, Eastern Europe, Spain, Portugal and South Africa. My two biggest hurdles? Shipping times and Facebook ad spend. Any comments or suggestions? Thanks!!

    Hi, thank you for your interest!

    To compete with Amazon on the US market, you need to have a strong competitive advantage: considerably lower prices or a unique product range. In these cases, your customers will be ready to put up with a longer delivery time as they will have no alternatives with the same value for money.
    Targeting other regions is also a great strategy as long as you can appeal to these audiences in their language and adapt your marketing messages to their mentality.

    And if you need help with Facebook ads, please, consider this service: Delivering it, we’re not only creating texts and visuals for the ads, but also give detailed recommendations on ads targeting and setup.
