We go for the long tail keywords. So we get
buyers very late in the buying cycle.
Anton Kraly is the founder and CEO of Drop Ship Lifestyle & eCommerce Lifestyle. He focuses on empowering people through eCommerce and better marketing. Anton and his team are constantly researching and testing to discover what works best in digital marketing and eCommerce. Anton’s story was featured in Forbes, he’s been on numerous business podcasts, and he holds annual retreats for Drop Ship Lifestyle and hosts live events for marketers and business owners. Since Anton was young, he wanted to start his own business. After attending college, he explored franchised gyms but decided to build a business that delivered cookies in New York. He expanded his cookie business, but grew tired of all the problems with a physical business. After reading Tim Ferriss’s “4-Hour Work Week,” he decided to go into eCommerce and discovered drop shipping. From there, he built his first 7-figure eCommerce store. With his success in eCommerce, he was asked by friends and family how he did it. So he started Drop Ship Lifestyle, and after 4 years, he has taught over 5,000 students how to build their own drop shipping stores.
