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!!

Claudia says at 20:59 et
That's not an issue as long as you don't sell on amazon or ebay and only use this method on your OWN site (shopify store). So you customer cant ruin your acc feedback with negative reviews on slow delivery time.
For amazon you should only use domestic dropshippers to avoid long waiting time.
One more tip - call the shipping "FREE". when something is free people tend to complain less. Okay it's slow but i got it for free so i will wait.

Claudia says at 21:10 et
I think we replied that before.. Please use SEARCH first! Use the dropshipper's return policy.? You can use mail forwarding (virtual office) address for package forwarding..

Is Retail arbitrage even worthwhile anymore? i checked Target, Walmart, Toys-r-us and profit margins are too low for me.

Claudia says at 21:14 et
We already discussed it... See the video "why i hate retail arbitrage". In short, yes it works but it's much more complicated and it's basically another JOB not a passive income. I would not get into it this year. It's hard to scale if you are just starting out and don't have assistants to help you find producs, list them...

The race to the bottom is a dangerous game. Instead of lowering price try to offer unique product, a bundle, a set, to stand out from competition. You lowering the price will just make other sellers lower their price as well, and now everybody is making less profit with no added benefit.

Think of doing a bundle or a set and RISE the price, not lower it

What shipment method is best from US to overseas for my products?

 Alice says at 21:32 et
DHL Express for all international shipments. IT's 20% more expensive than USPS but it will provide international tracking and it's much faster as well. For example $30 for 16 ounces (500 gram) in DHL to Australia.. (discounted rate) get account with them!

Btw great idea for you: customized license plate... build shopify store, then source from sites like buildasign.com Then promote via Facebook ads. Like PUGS licence plate for pug owners etc

I have watched a lot of videos and I understand what they are telling me to do. However, I can't memorize an all the instructions. Is there a written text instruction that I can reread the instructions as I am filling out the forms? I have been putting everything on my reading list but don't know if that is enough.
