Dropshipping Products to Sell Online

Find out what my selection of best dropshipping products that you can sell today at a high profit and learn how to select a winning and profitable drop shipping niche.

Ive dropshipped a lot of different products, big, small, electronics, wood, simple, complex, cheap, high ticket and I have had some crackers go viral and have had crickets where nothing sold. I am not the guru of dropshipping. I am however a normal guy trying to do his research and sell products that he has found and thinks might have viability to make a good income from. 

My insights will be formed by my own experiences, my budgets allocated to compete in the dropship space, knowledge of markets, tools and tactics and my commitment to working on my store and ad accounts. We may do step by step the exact same thing but have different outcomes. Walk your path but please by all means refer to what Ive done to guide you and help avoid mistakes.

Let's get into this.

There are 2 types of dropshipping styles

Having had a bit of exposure to ecommerce brands, building my own brands and dropshipping I can see two clear styles of dropshipping that is in the market right now. Ive done both and I know what the better options for me based on requirements and returns from effort out in. By no means do I suggest one is worse than the other both are very rewarding, but one requires less work.

The first style are the career dropshippers who hunt the trends and have a system they follow to sell mainly high ticket items like the automatics reclining massage chair above (image), they have a plan, dedicated budgets, capitial and can build out teams.

The second style is more run and gun, chasing trends and fads, building single product stores and advertising aggressively. Typically this style sells cheaper items with lower margins, is constantly fighting off competition and moves very fast. 

Both can be very lucrative and rewarding. Ive had a style 2 store that sold products like they were going out of fashion and it was very rewarding financially but also a lot of work was involved. Each has its own pros and cons and you should always pick a style that best suits how you work. You can also have stores doing dofferent styles, I have many stores and some test stores follow style 2 very agile and lean while my bigger stores follow style 1 having a lot systems in place and assigned advertising budgets.

The great thing is even if you pick one and it doesn't fit with your style you can change it over the course of a weekend its that easy. You have complete control, you also don't hold inventory or have anything physical weighing you down so pivoting is not going to be a big ordeal.

How to start researching products for dropshippers

Starting an online dropship business in 2021 will be the most profitable and hottest online business to get involved in. It's super simple to set up, requires almost no inventory and allows you to make huge profits on sales you might not even make otherwise. It’s easy to get started, and it costs almost nothing. All you have to do is set up an ecommerce store on your website, copy products from another ecommerce store to your website, and then start promoting those products on social media and search engines. Very easy. Finding the best products to sell via drop shipping is the hard part. Once you do that, all you have to do is create your website, write an announcement about your best products, and watch your orders pour in.

The winning products in your dropship store will be those that you are able to identify and add to your inventory. It's up to you to make sure you are offering the "best of the best. After you have identified the market, you have to select the best products to sell to that market. If you don’t do this, your product mix will be substandard, which will result in a lower than maximized revenue.

Your goal is to come up with as many profitable ideas as you can. Don’t worry about competition at this stage. Just keep an eye out for niches with low competition. That will make your job easier later when you’re picking products to sell and optimizing your marketing campaigns. You can also choose to go with niches and dropshipping products that are high search volume. Or you can stay away from the craze and go for products that won't fly off the shelves just because they're selling like crazy. You don't have to take my word for it.

Don't be fooled into thinking a product must have more features to make it easier to promote and sell, this is not the case. Often the simple feature set can be enough to connect with the customer. You'll have to select the ones that are right for you and your market. Your goal is to be the one-stop-shop for your customers. If you do this properly, you'll be able to offer very low prices and high-quality products and services and make a nice profit doing it.

What Type of Dropshipping Products Sell More?

If you’re looking for the fastest way to make money, then dropshipping might not be for you. It’s not for everyone. Someone will purchase your product if they like it. You don't have to do anything. If you're selling an info product, the customer will most likely be another customer of yours. If you're selling a product with a price, the customer will almost certainly be someone who is already a customer of yours. This is absolutely true. Anything can sell if you simply arrange it in an interesting manner and give it proper attention.

A successful (impulse buying) dropshipper is someone who buys what they want, when they want it, and at the lowest price possible. If you have an established ecommerce business, buying power comes from your bank account. Ive even tried some quickfire small priced items like a mixed bag of useful products under ten dollars these would include baby food pouches, kitty litter boxes, meat thermometers, pepper sprays, laundry detergent, dishwashing liquids, cleaning tools, etc Ive done this some times they work but most of the time the sub $5 purchase price of dropship products just didnt become profitable.

You only have to make the ad attractive and keep the price low. You don’t have to memorize any scripts. Just take the info provided by Amazon and run with it. Here's what you need to do: An attractive advertisement is the hook that will induce the people to buy the product. Of course, you tell them the price. If they don’t have the cash or credit cards to buy it right away, you offer to hold their order for a few days while they get the money together. The price should be low enough so they get sold instantly. If they don’t get sold instantly, you haven’t priced them correctly.

Product Fit Quickfire Questions

A question often asked by potential dropshippers is "What should I dropship?" This is a complex question with no easy answer.

  • Does this product resonate with me?
  • Do I know enough about this product?
  • Does the product fit my existing store audience needs?
  • Is this product easy to source and ship?

How to gauge product popularity

It's almost impossible to find unique dropship products that no one else is selling, I cant say Ive ever seen something that no one else was selling. You can sell what others sell. There is no problem with this. As long as you are the only seller who offers this product with a unique twist or compelling copy, you will have a huge advantage over your competitors by matching problem and solution. This is half the battle, you just need traffic to your sales page to know if you have great product description copy.

For obscure products the lower competition will cause your products to appear higher in the search results. This gives you a huge advantage over your competition. The positives for weird products is yes they have smaller demand but they usually in my experience have higher search intent by customers. Less competitive is good and having less existing content to compete with.

Having products that are mainstream popular and in demand you have the option to ride the wave of popularity and get some sales off the back of the product. You can be very profitable because of the volume of demand for the product but you will also be facing x2,000 more competitors where as not so popular products wont have the number of competitors selling them making it easier.

My advice for product popularity is this: Find a niche like Cars parts. Have a look at the big name car parts ecommerce stores around the type of categories they use to break up their car accessories products. In this example you may look at this trail of niche inspecting - Car Parts > Steering Wheels > Covers > Padded Comfort Steering Wheel Covers

You can see how niche specific that example is. The people searching for that will be very interested in this product based on a problem that they have. The example we used will be ideal for people who have sensitive hands, gripping problems. The product helps them by providing a solution to their existing problem. This is the shift in thinking about popularity. To the people searching for this product they know what they need to fix and are just looking for a product that does that. 

In short we are using a key topic and exploring the sub topics and from there looking at the very granular level product solutions to use for dropshipping. The reason we do this is to have a product for a already interested market, while smaller the people looking for these products are more likely to purchase given the specifics of this products problem solving features. 

Life improvement products like air purifiers, exercise equipment, weight-loss programs, personal development books and audio tapes and so forth. If the price is a little high, it's not a big deal. As long as you can show through your product videos that the product will improve their lifestyle, then people will surely buy them.

What to Choose for Dropshipping: Niche or Trends?

Use them alternately. Either sentence is fine. However, if you are consistent and remain unchanged, the readers will perceive your writing as boring and un

The best way to test several products at once is to go head-to-head. Take two similar products and pit them against each other. Which product wins the contest? You be the judge. Don’t get lost in the details. It is not enough to simply sell a lot of products from a specific niche on your website. You have to sell a lot of those products on social media as well.

Trending products are important. You should also consider popular categories and niches. Don’t forget to include some “long tail” products that are a bit more off the beaten path.

Long tail products are often the most profitable. They can also bring in higher profit per sale than more conventional products. OK, I want to talk about how you create a “killer” sales pitch for your website or Facebook page. Here’s what I mean: Imagine you are a car dealer selling a particular make and model of car. What would be the best way to promote that make and model on your website? How about this? Instead of just having a few descriptive sentences to entice people to read your site, why don’t you give them a bunch of specs and let them make up their own minds? For example, you could say something like this: ^ This is a really cool website I found online. It has info on hundreds of different makes and models of cars. You should visit it because… it has specs on nearly every make and model of car ever produced.

Anyone who doesn’t want to look beautiful shouldn’t even waste their time reading this book.

As seen over the past five years, one of the most trending and profitable dropshipping niches for amazon is selling products related to women and their needs. Anything you can get someone to buy is fair game. You can sell T-shirts, dresses, hats, mugs, key chains, whatever. Your product offerings should be defined by a particular theme. This will make your business more easily identifiable as being part of a larger group of similar businesses. A good example would be a book titled “How To Create A Profitable WordPress Website”. Here are two very different product offerings based on that theme: Product A: Most sellers think of Halloween, Christmas and the 4th of July as their peak selling seasons but that's only true if you're counting merely units sold. What's truly important is your profit... and... if you can make it during the other 9-5 months of the year, do it!

How to Find Winning Dropshipping Products?

I have a simple super-effective checklist that simplifies the arduous task of finding the best products to dropship. It is 100% based on real data and using this simple process, I’ve made it possible for almost anyone to become an instant success *commitment to actual put in the work to succeed is out of my control you are charged with putting in the work.

The Process:

Look up the top selling products in that category on one of the three marketplaces I mentioned earlier (Amazon, AliExpress, or Etsy) C: Find the vendor or manufacturer whose products are currently listed as number one on those searches D:

Look under each category (niche) in the top right corner of the Amazon product page to see how many products are currently selling best. This tells you very quickly what products are most profitable to sell.

Check out the popularity of these keywords on Google Trends I'm sure you get the point. This will probably seem obvious to most of you but, be aware that most of your readers (including me) will be visual learners.

High in demand products make up the heart of your product list. Once you know what products your customers want most, you'll be able to offer those products first in your online store and give your customers what they want, which makes them buy from you again and again.

You can find winning products by searching for them on a platform like “Product Finding” which is available online. These seven simple words will make your Amazon search much more effective. When you use the key word "these" in your Amazon search, the results you get will be much more likely to have the products you are looking for.

Here are some of the reasons why people buy from you:

  • Reason 1: They trust you!
  • Reason 2: They want what you are selling!
  • Reason 3: Your product solves their problems

How To Determine What People Want To Buy... And Why and How much work that takes to run the dropship store.

You'll discover if it's profitable, how much work it is, what it involves and if you should even bother getting started. There are many other ways to market your website besides just sending email sales pitches. You should explore these other avenues as well. For example: 1. Set up a Google alert for your website name. Here, you can easily discuss the results of your product campaigns. You'll learn important lessons about what works (and what doesn't) when it comes to promoting your products. There’s also a special report called “The 15 Rules You Must Know To Make $1,000 Per Day With Amazon” which, for an additional fee, will be sent to your email address immediately after you finish reading the free copy.

As soon as you know what to sell, it's a good idea to look into a bit of up-selling techniques as well. When you learn how to up-sell effectively, you can enjoy the benefits of a very nice income for a long time.

Furthermore, after deciding on the products, you should proceed to set up your online store or blog to sell them. Do you see how much clearer it is now? You're welcome. I believe I've made my point. My only regret is that this piece isn't longer. You should seriously consider using one of the cloud hosting services mentioned above, specifically Amazon Web Services (AWS), Google Cloud Platform (GCP) or Microsoft Azure. You should also set up your email to use Gmail, Hotmail, Yahoo or Outlook.

What ever you decide to sell on your dropship store you must have a nice looking website with commerce functionality to make money with dropshipping. I suggest either Shopify or WordPress with Woocommerce for your ecommerce store and the checkout technology included with these CMS platforms.

Making the most of your dropship products

Thats the ins and outs of picking successful dropship products to sell on your store, I dont think its ever going to be a simple process and if it was everyone would be posting winners. Its not always about highest search volume, or highest margin sometimes its just about matching a problem to a solution and marketing the two in such a way. Thats been my key to product selection and success.

If you have found this section on product research a big help thats great and keep on reading as we start to tackle more of the operational requirements for running a dropship store.
