Process To Choose the best items to drop ship
Actually, according to my experiences, I have found two main methods to find the best items to drop ship. 1) Paid Method 2) Free method. Both are important according to your financial status and your available times. I will define both of them separately but before that, consider yourself what actually you are. I mean to say, If you are a financially successful person and trying to build a part-time business then paid method will be the right choice for you. In another way, if you are absolutely fresher or trying to be successful financially then the free method will be the right choice for picking the best items to drop ship.
Find Best Items to Drop ship with Paid Method: Although it is a time-saving method, in the earlier stage of the drop shipping business, you will have to lose almost $100-$200 in order to find the best items to drop ship. Sometimes it takes more and sometimes it takes zero. Anyway, all you have to do, go to aliexpress and pick 21 highest selling products with 4+ reviews from 21 different categories. Make a data list of them and set up a Facebook ads campaign. Divide all the 21 products into 7 groups. Each group should contain 3 products. Invest $5 for each product. Run the ads campaign, one group for one day. After 7 days, pick 7 top selling products from the 7 groups you made. And again pick another 14 highest selling products with 4+ reviews from Aliexpress. Add both 7 & 14 products and again divide into 7 different groups. Each group contains 3 products including one previous product. That means 2 new products from aliexpress and 1 product from the 7 groups’ products you picked. Recycle the process again and again till one month. At the end of the month, you will have got 7 best items to drop ship.
Now invest $20 for each product in your Facebook ads campaign and guess what? Boom! These 7 best selling items will recover your lost money. Remember never stop finding new best items to drop ship.
You will have to manage this data list. Your chosen 7 products should last for the next one month and during this month you will have to recycle this whole process in order to find the next best items to drop ship. When you will find the next 7 best items to drop ship then compare with previous 7 products and pick 7 from the 14. Keep on recycling this process regularly and build a sustainable 6 figure drop shipping business.
The last tip for the paid method is, you should follow the trend or season while picking the products from Aliexpress. For example, if this is winter then pick hoodies items or if this is Christmas then pick Christmas gift items.
Find Best Items to Drop ship with Free Method: In the drop shipping business, finding the best items to drop ship is quite difficult especially in the free method as I told in the previous part of this article. Although the free method is harder and time-consuming process than the paid method, it is secure, means risk ratio is less than the paid method. In this method, you don’t need to invest in order to experience which product is selling best. All you need to have a calculative mindset to choose the best items to drop ship. You will have to invest in order to increase your sales. The main and important thing to do in the free method is niche selection to blast your drop shipping business.
Niche Selection: Have you ever thought about any product that will make you rich? If yes then you may not on the right path. It’s not compulsory that your taste and your vision will make your customers satisfied. Always be calculative with emotions while choosing the best items to drop ship. To select your multimillion drop shipping business niche, first, you will have to decide what kind of success you expect. Do you want to build a 6 figure sustainable drop shipping business or want to do a seasonal drop shipping business? If your expectation is the first one then you will need evergreen best items to drop ship but if your expectation is the second one then you will need hot selling best items to drop ship.
Hot Selling Products: Drop shipping business with hot selling products is a seasonal business. It has both advantages and disadvantages. Sometimes people confuse between hot selling items and the best items to drop ship. Hot selling products are the best items to drop ship but the best items are not always hot selling items.
Advantage: It has a few advantages like you can sale your drop shipping product either it is a high-quality product or low-quality product. People always crazy to buy seasonal or trending products. You can easily find hot selling best items to drop ship as well as your targeted audiences to sell.
Disadvantage: Hot selling best items to drop ship have a huge disadvantage. If you don’t have time and have financial backups then go for hot selling items otherwise not. Because hot selling items are the most popular products and almost every drop shipper trying to sell those products. That means if you are thinking to sell those items, then just prepare yourself to enter in a huge competition. Another disadvantage of hot selling best items to drop ship is those items are not stable in trend all the time. After a few weeks or months, you will have to change your niche. The success and the failure ratio will be 50:50.
How to Find Hot Selling Products
Finding a hot selling product is as easy as you read in the paid method section but for absolutely free. Just go to aliexpress and search in the different categories using the different filters.
