Dropshipping has become a popular activity for online sales & marketing strategies.
In fact it has exploded on the market with huge growth.
The act of selling products & services (also known as drop-servicing) is a great method for low cost startups, able to add flexibility & scale to their operations.
Connecting buyers to suppliers that ship direct to customers without holding inventory is a proven method.
The ability to have few expenses for setting up, allows for testing via pay-per-click (PPC) marketing strategies the only downside for poor product or service selections.
As you don’t require to hold inventories for product sales, increasing volumes for significant returns has low barriers.
Ecommerce platforms such as Shopify & WooCommerce make it easier than ever to have a professional online shop with integrations & management tools at fingertips.
Services such as print-on-demand (POD), dropshipping enabled suppliers like Aliexpress & Oberlo create an environment for finding attractive products allow for a wide range of goods for you to sell online.
Google Ads & Facebook Ads are the final component that has made this venture so successful for so many.
Many dropshipping gurus make it sound so easy but there it requires skills & experience.
