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.

here is what amazon policy says "Drop shipping, or allowing a third party to fulfill orders to customers on your behalf, is generally acceptable. Be the seller of record of your products;
Identify yourself as the seller of your products on all packing slips and other information included or provided in connection with them; Be responsible for accepting and processing customer returns of your products; and
Comply with all other terms of your seller agreement and applicable Amazon policies.

I'm new here.. Quick one.. What's FOB ??

Claudia says at 21:16 et
"Free On Board" is a term in international commercial law specifying at what point respective obligations, costs, and risk involved in the delivery of goods shift from the seller to the buyer. Indicating "FOB port" means that the seller pays for transportation of the goods to the port of shipment, plus loading costs. The buyer pays cost of marine freight transport, insurance, unloading, and transportation from the arrival port to the final destination. The passing of risks occurs when the goods are loaded on board at the port of shipment.

Claudia says at 21:28 et
You can choose Express courier, Air freight, and Sea freight. Incoterms rules can be FOB, EXW, usually i suggest to choose FOB. So its not your duty to worry about exporting fees and china customs..

Hi Everyone, new to the wall. Excited to get going with tutorials. Off the top of the head questions; can the niche finder for Amazon be applied to Shopify when searching for competition and comparing it to demand? Regards.

Welcome Ryan! Great to have you with us!!! Yes of course. if something sells on amazon it of course will also sell on shopify as well. The demand is universal, it's not platform specific.

 James says at 01:29 et
Dont say that you are from Thailand on your store. Buy a virtual address in USA, use fiver to proofread the texts (very cheap). See the video about building credibility, it helped me a lot

Sathaporn, make sure your store looks trustworthy, follow the common steps outlined in the video lesson about building trust.
- virtual address
- phone number in US
- forwarding service (to forward returns)
- hire virtual assistant to proofread your english if you struggle with english. (on fiverr for $5)
- put trust seals
- be clear about delivery time
- provide great tracking and good customer service to keep customers happy

 Kylie says at 05:03 et
After you import the products, you can simply edit them from Shopify itself (in the PRODUCTS section) and there you can update description, set collection etc. Also if you think it's a bug, reach Oberlo support, they are very helpful!

My advice for people who are not successful with dropshipping/shopify - remember its not just about the product but the ads strategy!without building REAL community cold traffic ads just don't work to the cold traffic. I see others who are successful with dropshipping among my partners do a serious community and devote great effort into building it (like baby / moms community) or funny products community.
paying just for clicks to cold traffic with no community just does not work, no matter how hard you work or how much you test! So my advice is first build a facebook community before paying for facebook ads. there is some great video about it in the sells like hot cakes course in the end of the shopify mastery.
