Is Dropshipping Worth it?

Tuesday, March 06, 2018

It does seem to be, yes. You can easily find countless examples of people making hundreds and thousands per month and even more in some cases.

You’ll be successful if you follow these tips:

  • Advertise different products each time to see which ones bring in the most sales
  • Test different Instagram and Facebook influencers by paying them to display your ads
  • Use Google AdWords to show up in Google search results for keywords related to the items you’re selling
  • Create a blog and religiously post interesting related content to build a loyal following
  • Use Facebook Ads to advertise your blog posts and then use data on the people who clicked the ad to create a Lookalike Audience for advertising your products
  • Once they’ve purchased, you need an email marketing system in place to send them information on new products, discounts, offers and the most popular blog posts to entice them in to purchasing from you again

If you’d like to start your own dropshipping site, the best setup in many ways is with Shopify, the Oberlo app, and products from AliExpress.
