I am using Dropshipping as my second income source after my boring tech day job.
I would like to share you the EXACT way that I am using to find profitable items that will SELL. I am sharing it because I find it very hard to find profitable items when I just started to dropship.
What you need
How it works
Let’s say for example that I want to sell a keyboard on eBay; but I want to know which type of keyword are selling the best - I will simply visit Watchcount when we there; We will write ‘Keyboard’ on search
Great! Now I have just found out that this type of keyboard is one of the top 3 keyboards that being sold on the platform. It’s time to research on Amazon for the same type of keyboard.
Let’s click on the title and check how many sales this specific seller made
As we can see the seller is made more than 5K Sales which means. Now we want to find a lookalike item or the same item on Aliexpress we will simply copy the seller Tittle and insert on Aliexpress search engine.
I find a similar product on Aliexpress; Now all I have is just copy the listing information and take the Seller keywords - If we will have just 1% a month from his keyboard listing revenue we can make some bank. $
- Keyboard costs: 9.24$
- eBay & Gaypal Fees: 15%
- Costs after Fees: 10.62$
So, it will cost us 10.62$ In total to send this keyboard to our client. The Current seller who sold 5K pieces selling it for 13.89$. We will sell the keyboard for 13.75$ ; Each sale will bring 3.13$ of pure profit to our skinny pocket.
3.13$ Are small profit - and you should him for 10X than this. The Idea of this Tutorial is to explain to you how to research for profitable items. If you will invest enough time In products research - you will VERY much bigger margins than the one that I show in here.
Your goal is to get your keyboard listing on eBay on page 1 - before the Actual seller that we got the idea for our keyboard. Our chances to get in there are VERY achievable, why? : We sell it at a better price than the original seller. eBay wants to provide his customers with the best prices that they can get. However: If you are a new seller without feedbacks and sales history: They will make it 3X Harder on you. but you can always sell cheap items for 0.99$ and build your account from 0. It can be done with minimal work.
You can use Pinterest / Quora / Social Media to drive traffic to your listing, eBay love traffic outside of their marketplace and it can help to push your listing higher in SERPs engine.
