Is Drop Shipping Right for You?

Starting your own business can be scary. It doesn’t matter what kind of business you choose, there is always the possibility that your time and effort will result in little to no sales. For many business owners, this is the breaking point at which they lose hope of being a successful business owner. Drop shipping eliminates many of the risks because of the low overhead, but there is still plenty of work to do in order to be successful.

Determining whether or not drop shipping is right for you starts with the amount of time and money you have to invest into your business. If you are willing to learn how to build your own website, then starting your business will cost you around $30. This is roughly the cost of registering a domain name and signing up for a web hosting account. From there, many shopping cart programs and web design platforms are free. Of course, it takes hours to build an actual functioning website even with point-and-click style platforms. If you are unable to devote the time to building your website then it is likely that you will need to spend the money to hire a professional design service. A standard drop shipping website will cost around $400.00 to have built by a semi-professional and upwards of $1500 or more for a full fledge graphic designer.

The next consideration is your marketing. After your website is built you will need to invest time and money into driving website traffic to your business in order to make sales. Social media is a good method for building an online presence but will result in minimal actual sales. However, the more posts that you make through social media accounts, the more links will be and therefore the easier it will be for search engines to find your website and direct users to you. Press release writing and distribution is the best method to increase online presence, create necessary links to improve sales and spread the word about your new website, products and specials. No matter what, you should plan to spend a minimum of five hours per week marketing your website and products. Alternatively, you can outsource social media management to a professional freelance team that specializes in modern marketing.

Finally, the types of products that you choose to sell will greatly impact the level of sales volume that you experience. Many business owners who are successful with drop shipping choose products that are evergreen. This means that they are likely to be used far into the future. For example, cell phones, accessories and computer-related devices have been highly popular for the last decade. As technology advances, consumers want to purchase the latest of everything. Your website can be their go-to source of devices if you build a strong customer base through your marketing efforts. If you want to know what types of products are the hottest-selling today, you simply need to browse news headlines to see what people are talking about. Currently in 2012, the most popular consumer goods include all-natural baby supplies, electronics and weight loss supplements.
