What to sell? Here is an original idea!

Today while browsing through Facebook wall I stumbled upon an interesting dropshipping shopify offer (they are driving traffic via Facebook Ads like I am teaching in the course)

Take a look. Instead of going the beat down road with selling “dog products” or “necklaces” or “t-shirts” (the market is really oversaturated with those), these guys went really original and playing on the “nostalgic” and our childhood memories of the retro games.

This is their ad, well written as well:

No surprise it got many comments and shares. and if you check their offer, they are selling the retro games station for 67 EURO (!).

The shopify store is well done as well with well placed apps, scarcity and reviews.

Now if you check SellslikeHotcakes Tools, you can easily find the suppliers they use.

with the sourcing price of $30.99 USD! (Just 25 EUR!)

As you can see they are getting almost $30 Net profit per sale or maybe more, as the shipping is free.

So you can see how well you can get started with dropshipping using a simple viral idea, playing on the passion and nostalgia idea instead of trying to sell generic products like necklaces or t-shirts!

If you have not started, I hope you get started soon, and get your store going for the coming-soon Christmas sale!!

If you are scaling up YES! If you are just starting NO! Learn first yourself, then outsource!

A VA is a virtual assistant, mostly freelancer. A large majority of VA's are in countries like Philippians or India. Most have a decent ability to understand, speak and write English and help you with customer support, scheduling, proofreading etc.
There are a handful of websites where you can hire a VA, oDesk, Fiverr etc. How much to pay.. For VA's in the Philippians you can find a good worker that's decent with English for $3-5/hr and a very good worker that's fluent in English for $6-8/hr

Hey guys, thanks for the great course! Dont know how to say, but I have a strong thinking within myself, that it is too late to start. I know that this will probably be only a belief. Any ideas for helping me with this issue?
I am also looking for products but it's really hard to find something with the criterias the course is telling me.
What about you guys? Are you thinking similar or I am the only one here? :)

hi Jan and welcome. "is it too late" is the common fear of everyone that is getting started. What you really fear is "is it too much competition? what if my product does not fit all the criteria"? The truth is, there will be never an ideal product that fits ALL criteria. Criteria is an indication for you in which direction to look, but it does not mean that you must find ideal product that fits ALL criterias at the same time. This will never be the case.

This year is amazing time to start ecommerce, because so many new tools are developed and released and with new amazon review policies it's getting harder for low quality sellers just to buy tons of 5 star reviews and flood the market like it was last year. So i think it's getting even easier for people to stand out when most of those low quality sellers are banned for incentivize reviewes.

The great place to start looking for ideas is "Niche finder tool". http://sellslikehotcakes.co/niche_finder.php for example who know that baby towels or corner flags might be a great idea to sell? This will give you great ideas on how to find a product!

Great points there... is it too late to learn new languange? too late to start a business? You set your own limits. Maybe late for you, but i will start my 4th product this year and i dont look back. more business for me :)

The right time is NOW. Amazon is BOOMING. Jeff Bezos becomes second richest person On The Forbes 400. The gold rush time is NOW.
