Here are the steps on how to achieve and earn huge profits in the field of dropshipping this year.




1- Focus on one niche that you understand

To choose your niche, you should take advantage of your hobbies and interests and choose a product that you are excited to sell


Specifications of good niche dropshipping products:

  • Not easily purchased at a grocery or natural store
  • It is not seasonal and can be used on a daily and regular basis
  • Small, lightweight and easy to charge

Here is an example of an online store that has one niche: a smart phone, tablet, or laptop


2- Bulk Shipping:

Shipping plays a pivotal role not only in dropshipping but in every other online e-commerce business. This is a section of the online marketplace business that requires high maintenance fees. There are several shipping scenarios that may not be in your favour:

  • Pay the shipping fee to your shipper “shipping company”, while you have to provide free shipping service to your customer
  • Decline shippers also tend to make mistakes, as there is no guarantee that they will fulfill their orders perfectly.
  • Dropshipping requires you to pay the true cost of logistics, packing and shipping. This means that shipping costs are bound to rise with increased sales.
  • To reduce shipping costs, you can always ship more products in the same package. With this, you will not only save on shipping but also increase the average cart value as well.


3- Get to know your products

It is a lot easier for you to run a dropshipping store if you have a strong interest in it, when you have a deep knowledge of your niche, you will provide better customer service.

If you like and understand the niche well, you will be able to:

  • Choose the best products and items for your store
  • You can offer these products with high quality descriptions


Thus, your customers will feel your interest and trust you.

And now that you have chosen the appropriate niche and the products you want to sell, it is very logical to test your products.

For example: some store owners buy the product and try it before they offer it in their store for sale in order to test the product and test the supplier and the shipping period.

It is also your responsibility to respond to your customers' inquiries about your products, so that customers get to know the products, so I advise you to ask about product samples so that you can provide better product photos


4- Think of the product strategy

When you analyze what your customers want, you can add new products to keep buyers, and also keep an eye on market trends.

It is very important to update your store regularly, your customers are interested in visiting your store again and again, so you can add products related to your niche for your customers to choose from these products..

Remember : It is very necessary to advertise these products if you add something new, and be sure to let your store visitors know that through advertisements.


5- Stay up-to-date with the list of popular products:

Online marketing is a highly volatile and unpredictable market as well. You should always be up to date on what is happening in the industry. Market research is one of the most important aspects of running a successful online business. Finding the right products to sell on your website is the most important part of the decision-making process.

As forecasting in this market is not an easy task, you will have to seize any given opportunity when you see potential in a particular product and make sure to stock it.


6- Learn from your competitors

Did you know that any online store is a source of knowledge.!! As a beginner, it can help you understand how the store is designed and advertised. I often receive emails asking, "I want an idea for my store, Ramy?" But I reply to them that you get the best ideas from your competitors and not from me!!

For example, you can use someone else's experience to improve your product page, or you can learn how someone promotes their store on Instagram, Facebook, and other social media, so you can gather a lot of information when you don't have experience.

Learning from competitors is difficult, because some e-commerce store owners hide that they are dropshippers, so you should do the following:

  • Carry out an accurate research on your niches and potential competitors
  • And notice how many stores sell your product in your area
  • See if your competitors include brands
  • Look at the product reviews of your competitors, and be sure to incorporate them into your competitive advantage over your competitors


7- Avoid return orders:

This is the most worrying reason because it is one of the most expensive things to deal with, which may reduce the profits of dropshipping, some can be fixed but some are out of our control. Some of the reasons for late orders could be:

  • stock out of stock
  • Unpredictable product demand


This leads to a bad impression and negative feedback in the evaluation of the online store. This will be critical as the store's consumer base expands. However, these can be avoided by keeping the following pointers in mind:

  • Maintain a periodic check of your store inventory
  • Stock your products by researching and forecasting the market to the best of your ability
  • Always have backup suppliers with your regular suppliers
  • Be as transparent as possible with your customers from the start. Although this won't prevent backorders, it will at least help get positive reviews.


8- Make your own store or website safe and clean

Not only do you have to have a neat store and a hassle free website, but first you have to make sure that your site is secure and does not have any red flags, nowadays users are getting wiser and they can tell if the online store is safe or not.


Here are some points that you should avoid in order not to put red flags in your store:

  • Avoid using a questionable domain name or a URL with unnecessary or non-key words
  • Avoid poor design for your website or store
  • The presence of offers and discounts sharp or large
  • Using the English language without proficiency and the presence of grammatical errors

Tip : You should review product descriptions, and not just import content from the main resource, but create unique content or product descriptions that fit the keywords you target in search engines


9- Improving the customer experience

You can do a lot to increase customer interaction and motivate them to return to your store, so before launching your website, make sure that your customers can easily access this information:

  • Your contact page
  • Marketing logo or logo
  • Your store's privacy policies
  • Return or exchange policy in your store
  • Full details of the shipments of your products
  • Your FAQ page
  • Size and sizing guide, if your store is for clothes or shoes
  • Also you should always be honest at the time of delivery


10- Search on Ali Express

After a long analysis and research I decided to choose Ali Express, and I think it is the best platform with dropshipping suppliers.

I advise you when choosing a niche, go to Ali Express to check this niche. Through Ali Express, you can find out:

  • Number of products shown
  • Supplier reputation
  • Buyers' comments and feedback


Therefore, it is very necessary to get enough offers in this niche, and make sure that there are (a large number of requests for the product, positive feedback on quality, good reviews on the seller ... etc.)


11- Create an effective advertising strategy

There are different strategies on how to advertise your products effectively, and since the dropshipping business has a lot of competition at the moment, you should explore different advertising strategies.

You can take advantage of ad channel groups such as Facebook ads or Google ads, or some traditional marketing methods such as blogs, content, YouTube, Instagram, or through email marketing.

There is also a common mistake that beware of making, which is that most dropshippers pay money in Facebook and Google ads, without knowing how these ads actually work..
