My name is Lachie Thompson and around 4 years ago I started a drop shipping business which generated next to no sales.
However, it was during this failure, I very quickly realised that there’s much more that goes into a successful businesses, much more than just throwing some products on a website.
Given you are an established eCom entrepreneur, you understand product operations, shipping operations, product-market fit processes, customer support etc, and how deeply tough it all is to get perfect. Something I had no interest in doing.
From this venture I found a passion for marketing, although I barely scratched the surface, it was something I wanted to pursue. I funnily bought an online course from a YouTube ad to learn Facebook ads.
From here it was evident there was an enormous mass of amazing brands out there who have all the vital foundations, however lacking on the advertising side. Which is why I dived headfirst into quitting my carpet laying job to start an agency that solely works with the most exciting, fastest growing eCommerce brands.
Social Slingshot has now generated over $1,000,000 in revenue from Facebook Ads at over 10x ROAS.
