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!

Great idea George.. The best thing is shopify is not just for dropshipping! You can sell your own products and even fullfill by amazon for your shopify sales. Check ByteStand and several other apps for AMAZON integration into shopify

b) in case of small products use white BOX-setup like this http://imgur.com/a/VcRVM

What do I need to have to sell in EUROPE?? in pan european seller central
 
Claudia says at 21:27 et
Business registration in an EU country or company in EU, VAT registration in every country where your inventory is held, (usually its UK, Germany, France, Italy, Spain, Poland, and the Czech Republic) Also need CE certification. then you do in future also Annual income tax filings in your EU registered country, Monthly VAT filings in your registered countries, Annual, quarterly, or monthly filings of your activities with Interstat (the frequency depends on your sales volumes), A continuous customs bond for Schengen countries.
Continuous customs bonds for non-Schengen countries (basically the UK). There are companys that handle all that paperwork like FBA-Hero, check resources sections..

I used to do a hybrid of both physically stocked inventory and drop shipped products. I usually dropship from warehouses based in the US so it's faster.. and international ones from CHINA.. My advice, start by dropshipping first to validate products amd test and build momentum.. once you see it sells well get fulfilling inventory on the products that sell the most!

It's good. Your goal is to sell 10 units per day, $10 per unit profit. You are on the right track, keep pushing!

 Uncle Sam says at 22:54 et
Amazon now lets you put just 1k not 5k anymore... I Quote "There is a 1,000 character limit for keywords. These 1,000 characters can be provided all on one line or split between 5 lines."

Put brand name first... If you do a search for 10 different products and look at the 1st page results, you will likely see that in almost every case, the majority of listings are dominated by titles that start with a brand name

I used the Amazon best seller finder for a keyword. All the results sound encouraging. But I am confused with one of the messages, "Reviews: top 10 sellers have average 3757 reviews (At least 2 of 10 have 50 reviews or less. Recommended <150 reviews average)"
Does this indicate it's worthwhile? It says 3757, and recommended is less than 150. I am unable to interpret as the other results are great. Please help(and explain what they mean)!

 jo says at 02:03 et
It means they have many reviews probably so it's a very popular niche most likely. If the all other numbers sound good i would not be concerned. I think you mentioned you sell oils? so maybe instead of general oils try more specific like "facial oils" or "massage oils" or "lavanda oils" so it's more nichey

 Gautam says at 06:16 et
That's great.If the reviews are too less and the other numbers are right what's the course of action? Just curious.

Thank you for your suggestion on making the niche specific- very helpful!

Cheers.

Dont worry about reviews so much, it's becoming less important after last year Amazon's review policy update.

Hi, Claudia and Friends...
Just brainstorming a bit! Is it possible to monetize a Shopify store solely or in part by customer's purchases?

Hi everyone....I'm new here and looking forward to getting this thing off the ground! I'm hoping this course will help me decide which niche/products to use. I went to sign up for the Shopify trial and it asked for my store name....I have no idea ;-) I guess I have a lot of work to do!
