How To Choose Winning Products For Dropshipping

choose-winning-products

The biggest and ultimately most important question that you’ll need to ask yourself when starting a dropshipping business is what products you’ll be selling. 

For those of you who are new to the concept of dropshipping, here’s a brief introduction to what it’s all about. Dropshipping is a way of selling products on the internet without actually having to keep an inventory stock on hand. You ship these products to customers via a third party supplier. Doing so helps you avoid the storage costs associated with keeping inventory on hand. You also get rid of other headaches of picking, packing, shipping, and tracking.

Before committing yourself to a product, you need to ask yourself some critical questions. These are:

Does the product serve someone’s needs?

Before choosing a product, ask yourself if the product that you’re considering selling will appeal to a large group of people or not. Take a minute to think about what dropshipping products like back braces have that make them so popular. You’ll realize that all popular products serve a universal need. They target the broader market with their features. With such products, you have the potential for unlimited growth. Therefore, such products make for a sensible choice.

Is it readily available in mainstream brick and mortar stores? 

You need to choose a product that your target market won’t be able to purchase through conventional channels like physical, brick and mortar stores. If they could go out right now and buy it from the mall right this instant, why would they choose to wait two or three weeks by purchasing it through you? Select a product that’s otherwise mainly inaccessible to your target market as doing so will also give you an edge– the opportunity to raise prices.

Is it an impulse buy?

If you want to play on the safer side of the field, it’s a sensible decision to invest in lower-priced products like pens, towels or mugs (at least initially). Since these aren’t premium, high-cost products, the risk associated with their purchase is relatively low. People won’t put a lot of thought into making the purchase. While admittedly, they won’t give you a wide profit margin, but people will be more likely to buy such products without putting too much thought into it. Not only that, because of their low price point, customers are also likely to purchase such items in bundles. As such, selling a low ticket or low priced item will allow you to earn profits through the size of your sales volume. For all the new sellers out there, low priced, impulse-buy items are your safest bet.

At this point, you might be thinking of some way to make the process less of a burden. We’re happy to tell you that the “FindNiche” tool can solve the problem. Above all, the tool is Free to use.
