This is the first episode in a series I'll be doing every day while I'm in Bangkok, Thailand. I live here most of the year, so it makes sense to keep these posts in a series since I'll be doing a lot of them. You can learn about my lifestyle, my daily comings-and-goings in Bangkok, and gain from the lessons I learn in the process.
First things first, I started a workout routine not too long ago. Just a simple half-hour upper body workout in the gym every morning around 8 or 9 am. My goal is to build core strength, my chest, and my arm muscles. It feels great to get the blood flowing after getting some work done in the morning, and yes, I consider blogging "work" which is funny because its some of the easiest work I have ever done in my life.
After my workout session, I spend some time in the coworking space on the rooftop of my luxury condo. It's awesome up there. 41 floors up so I can see most of the rest of the city, the river, and the landscape. It's a great place to get some heads-down work done.

I'm sitting here at the co-working space on the roof of my luxury condo in Bangkok working on my high-ticket drop shipping masterclass. I'm creating new content and making updates to old content. This is something I'll always be working on improving every day as growing high-ticket drop shipping businesses is what I am most passionate about. @ecommerceparadise
Then, I usually head over to the Phrom Phong BTS station area. I usually grab some food at Vegenerie like this smoothie bowl I got today.
I usually work in 2-3 hour sessions. After which I take a break. I come home and relax with my wife, grab some food at the local vegetarian restaurant and some hot tea, then maybe a foot massage or oil massage at the local massage parlor. It's definitely a good life.
I rediscovered something today that really got me thinking about the future of my eCommerce businesses. For a long time, Zipify Pages has been around and they offer custom build squeeze pages, sales pages, and drag-and-drop page building tools for Shopify store owners.
I am trying to improve my SEO and that means I am going to need to move off of using Leadpages and find a squeeze page builder I can use on my own root domain on Shopify, and Zipify Pages is the perfect solution. So I am going to start building my funnel on my own Shopify store using Zipify Pages so all my traffic will now be going to my own website and my link profile will improve dramatically, hopefully advancing me to the top spot of Google for my main keywords.
This same app will be excellent for building out professional looking pre-sales blog posts and sales pages for best-selling products. In the past, I've used the built in Shopify page editor, but it's very limited and is not a drag-and-drop style editor, so I can't make it look like a magazine or catalog.
I'll be learning how to use this tool and partnering with them as well so I can teach how to use it in my high-ticket drop shipping masterclass. I'm really excited about this and can't wait for it to come to be.
I'm also learning more about the power of email marketing using tagging and segmenting to craft offers only to send to people who are interested in them. I'm trying to figure out better how to remove people from offer lists when they are no longer interested as well, but that will probably just require some simple automation I can use via content linking. I'm currently using ConvertKit for email marketing and it's going great as I learn how all this works and how to make it all work.
I'm going to start building out the advanced social media marketing, advanced email marketing, and advanced Google Ads modules in my high-ticket drop shipping masterclass very soon, so I'm excited about that. Our new store is almost at the $10k sales mark for the first 30 days which is just what I had expected. I expect it to double month after month until it hits around $100k in a month in about 5-6 months.
At that point, we will need to re-assess things to see how far we want to scale this business because we will need to hire a bigger team to manage everything like customer service, sales, and vendor relations. I don't mind hiring a big team, but it means we have to hire a manager too, and that requires a lot of time and effort, so it's a lifestyle decision we will need to make at some point.
Regardless, it will be a fun journey. I need to get back on the podcasting and Youtube bandwagon soon as well. I have a whole list of content to make, I just need to get back into the habit of making the content. So look out for that. Talk soon.
