5 Uncommon Dropshipping Products To Try This Year

Dropshipping is an awesome e-commerce business model and can be really profitable too, that’s if you know what you’re doing! A big part of the dropshipping game plan is choosing the right product. There are hundreds of products out there, and it is always easy to make a mistake and pick something that isn’t very marketable.

This almost always results in delayed sales and losses. To help you navigate the maze of products, we will drop 5 killer items that can help turn things around. Right now, we are still early in the year 2018; there’s plenty of time to correct mistakes and change your story from that of losses to profits!

Alright….  Let us begin now, shall we?

1. Animal Rings

The awesome niche of jewelry and women accessories is certainly profitable, and should never be ignored. Learning the latest fashion trends can help you position your store for incredible success. One of such trending fashionable items is animal rings.

These adorable and unique items will help set you apart from the competition, establishing you as the go-to store for the latest trendy items!

A cool trick to getting more sales with this product is to create bundles and also offer discount prices on large purchases. This will help pump sales and profits, and also attract more fashion savvy customers to your store!

2. Dog water bottles

Breaking into the already saturated pet industry is no walk in the park. Most pet owners already have established sellers they patronize, so getting them to take a look at what you’re offering is very difficult.

Nope! It is a proven fact in business that you can capture your competition’s most loyal customers with innovation. This simple fact has been confirmed over and over again. Want new proof?

Take a look at how Andriod phone completely obliterated blackberries!

The trick here is to offer something different, and Dog water bottles might just be the thing. Dog water bottles are not so popular, but they are pretty unique, and this is sure to attract any savvy pet owner. It is a great accessory for dog walkers and is sure to make you some money if you can combine it with a great marketing campaign.

3. Gold-plated flowers

Giving out flowers as a gift or romantic gesture is an age long tradition that doesn’t appear to be dying off anytime soon. The bad thing about giving out organic flowers is that they will eventually wilt and die off, especially if they aren’t properly cared for…

This is where you can come in…

Entice your customers with gold-plated flowers, which are not just perfect classy gifts, but they also have high lifespan duration, and will most definitely leave a lasting impression.

I’m sure you’re wondering if I am selling this product to you, well… of course, I am!

And now you can do the same or even better to your customers with a comprehensive marketing strategy to hit the right audience.

4. Choker Necklace

Did we mention that women accessories are hot stuff??

Yes, we did!

How did chokers become so popular?

Often, female celebrities have been spotted with choker necklaces, so it was only a matter of time before this trend trickled down to the general public. Good for us!

There is no denying that choker necklaces are trending right now and are in high demand. It would be foolish of a smart entrepreneur not to take advantage of the fashion trends. Whether you are looking at starting a women accessory store or you need new products to supplement the old, listing choker necklaces in your inventory is an excellent place to begin.

5. Moon Lamps

Want to stand out by selling something different and unique?? Then putting moon lamps on your inventory list should fly to the top of your priorities in 2018.

The homeware niche is saturated, but as we mentioned earlier, there is always a way to break in, by offering products that stand out. Moon lamps look weird, so yes, they are outstanding products, which not only help light up the environment but also produce an aesthetic aura bringing us closer to our celestial neighbor. They may not be popular right now, but that’s the whole point, listing them and using proper marketing skill will help crave a profitable spot for you in the very competitive homeware niche.

These five products, when combined with proper marketing strategies, will help enhance your profits and make you smile to the bank. If you can consolidate with proper marketing, for example, Facebook marketing, then you can reach for the stars.

If you are not so sure about marketing strategies, you can check out our video courses here.

Have a great week!

hi David! FOB means that the seller ships the goods to the port (such as FOB Shenzhen Yantian Port), and then the remaining responsibilities (sea freight, picking up and customs clearance) will be taken by the buyer . EXW is factory price.. . It means that the seller finishes the products and the goods is placed in the warehouse and the buyer needs to pick up the goods from the seller's warehouse.

If it's your first shipment I suggest to use "door to door" to avoid delays and hassles.

I was on shopify then left over grey areas of card merchants not wanting to support product. Months later I came back and then left after 10 days due to lack of available products in my niche. Aliexpress vendors using misleading titles or description don't help. I then tried an app to upload Amazon products as an affiliate and do a review site, but it looks gawdy compared to shopify, and I will never make money like that. Therefore, I am convinced that shopify is way better. I'll just have to find a different niche that Aliexpress or a US dropshipper can fulfill!

Shopify supports Stripe and Paypal, no grey areas there, very easy these days. Try to attach them both!

"I dont have time to watch 12 hours of videos!" I dont have time to research a product!" "I dont have time to find a supplier" I dont have time to open my own ecommerce store!"

 Claudia says at 05:24 et
It's "everything dog related store". Niche specific store would be "Dog's Frisby Store" "Pug Toy Store" or "Dog Halloween Store"

How do you know if the Traffic is Warm hot or cold? I want to launch an AD right away can i just start targeting my niche with different variations of ads right away as i am not looking for comments etc just sales. The FB ADS training is a little unclear.

hi James. The traffic that never saw your brand is a cold one. Imagine you have a spokeperson that is doing all the selling in the video. So to warm up the traffic, people need to know more about him and get used to see him as a head of community, as expert in your niche, so they start to buy from him.

If you do "everything store" without a leading actor or a good story, then another approach can be used, for example contest giveaway, or buy 1 get 1 free, or flash sale or "free just pay for shipping gift" etc.

Cold = never heard of your brand or product
Warm = already saw you and needs further pushing to sale with retargeting!
