Downselling: What Every Beginner Should Know

Downselling

One of the several ways that products selling brands make a lot of money is through the downselling of related products.

Downselling is an added way to make additional sales even from any form of selling.

Also, it’s a way to hold back customers from not taking that necessary buy action which you want them to take.

So, instead of just letting them go. You can recommend them another product that is more price lesser to the one they ought to have bought.

Many eCommerce websites have started using this technique for a long time and it’s just a way to hold tight on their customers.

Since you cannot see them physically – you have to do everything necessary to make them stay glued.

This is the only way you can keep making enough profit from any investment you make in traffic generation.

Below are the things we will be discussing in this guide which you must take note of:

 

What Is The Difference Between Upselling & Downselling?

Let us quickly look at the differences between Upselling and Downselling and their effect on a brand’s profitability.

  1. Price.
  2. Usage.
  3. Purpose.
  4. Advantage.

 

1. Price:

a. Upsells are introduced to the customer whenever a low ticket offer has already been purchased.

The only aspect where upsells prices are Introduced is when the price of the product being bought is less than the price of the product being introduced.

The price difference must be there because the major reason why an upsell is being introduced is to bring more profit.

So, price is a must when you are trying to do Upselling.

The price of Upselling must be more than that of the price of Downselling or the sold product.

If the price of the product is $30 – you can easily upsell any product ranging from $100 for more gains.

So, an Upsell item is majorly a high-priced item that complements the item that is being bought.

 

b. While a down selling is quite the opposite of upselling.. it is the low ticket product that is being introduced in a product.

That means that instead of it being a higher price product like the upsell.

It is always a lower-priced product that is introduced to the customer to make a purchase.

If the product that wants to be bought is something like $200 and the customer kinda feels skeptical to buy.

A down-selling of $100 product can be recommended just to make such a customer buy.

So, down selling is the selling of low-priced items when a purchase is going on.

 

2. Usage:

a. Upsells are majorly being introduced when a purchase has been made already.

The only time that an Upselling will pop up is when a customer has already made a purchase.

Then the seller can then introduce another higher product that also complements the product that the customer has bought.

Let us say, for example, a customer bought a course on “How to build landing pages” and it’s worth $150.

The seller or course creator can introduce another upsell for the product on “Tools to drive traffic to the landing page” and it can be worth $500.

It must complement the product bought and this can also happen in a physical product.

Amazon is the best place to go if you are into selling eCommerce products and you are thinking of how to do Upselling.

So, the major aspect where Upselling comes up is after a purchase has been made and you want to introduce another product.

Just make sure you do it right the way I just stated.

 

b. Downselling is always introduced within a purchase.

The aspect where this is very much needed is when a customer doesn’t want to buy.

There can be a lot of reasons why a customer doesn’t want to buy the product on your website.

But marketers just Immediately find another alternative to making customers make that purchase.

And that is through the technique of Downselling of products.

Like, if you are selling Product A for $50 and the customer just doesn’t want to buy maybe because it’s kinda high.

You can easily down-selling them with a Product B of $30 and that can get them to buy.

This is the best aspect where down selling comes up the most.

Also, you can easily do down selling even while a customer is making a purchase already.

You can just add an extra product that will only need them to checkmark and be added to their cart.

This is where the usage of Downselling comes up.

 

3. Purpose:

What’s the purpose of Upselling and Downselling?

a. Upselling serves majorly as an added profit for the company.

Majorly all the time…Companies depend on the product they want to sell before they can calculate any profit.

Also, if they don’t have any upsell – they will have to rely only on that product for them to bring out their profit.

But when Upselling is being introduced – that will serve as an added profit for the company.

The reason is that if a product is being sold for $50 for example and an upsell of $150 is being introduced.

What happens? The company or website has added another $100 profit to their revenue.

Although, not all the customers will buy the upsell as a majority will bounce off from the website.

But the little who bought will be an added profit that the website can use to settle other expenses.

This is the purpose of Upselling and why a majority of the E-commerce websites out there use Upselling.

 

b. Downselling cannot be compared to Upselling that is only there to add more profit for the website.

Down selling is in existence to cover up the expenses that the website has already incurred.

As you know that traffic (people) into a website is not always enough.

If you ask a website with millions of visitors if they need more traffic. Their answers will be YES!

So, websites do spend extra money on traffic and some other expenses just to bring more eyeballs to their content.

They spend a lot of money just for them to get people to come to buy their products.

And if down selling is not introduced. They will always have to keep relying on the revenue from products sold.

This means they will always have to remove the money from their revenue before they can continue their adverts or other costs.

So, just not to tamper with the revenue from the product sold. They decide to introduce down selling to the system.

When customers buy low-cost Products of $20 as down sells.

The stated website can use that to continue running more ads without touching the money from the specific product sold.

 

4. Advantage:

What are the Advantages of Upselling and Downselling?

a. Upselling helps in the development of the business. The money generated can easily be used to multiply.

They can use it to pay workers salary and also use it to buy more tools for the development of the website and the physical business.

Upselling can easily bring about more gaps to continue getting close in the business just from the little sales.

Even the company might not need to rely on revenue from the specific product sold.

And Upselling is always products that are of high ticket products.

Products that are of great luxury.

 

b. Downselling is majorly Introduced to fix sales for the website and not lose customers.

Just like I have stated earlier… some customers might just bounce from the website.

Mostly because the product is of high cost or maybe because they feel it’s not suitable for the price.

Different customers have different reasons for any product they want to buy.

And because of this – they might not just put effort and just bounce.

That is what down selling is there to fix up.

 

What To Consider When Down selling

There are several things to consider when you are doing down selling and we will be discussing them shortly.

  1. Relevance of the product.
  2. Price of the product.
  3. Accessibility of the product.
  4. Aspects to show a down-sell.

 

1. Relevance of the product:

Before you should even consider trying to downsell any product. First look at the relevance of that product with the product that the customer plan on purchasing.

This is what many E-commerce websites do wrong and also course creators who are selling digital products.

They won’t downsell products that have relevant closeness to the product that the customer wants to buy.

As you know that down selling comes up in two occurrences.

It’s either the customer wants to buy a product or you recommend a product of low price.

Or the customer doesn’t want to buy a product and you recommend other products that are low priced and also serve the same function as the stated product.

So, you should know that if you are recommending a product that doesn’t even stay closer to the product the customer wants to buy.

Then you will lose out on such a customer.

Like, if a customer wants to buy a bespoke shoe and you recommend a Polish that will make it shiner and last for days.

You can see that such a product compliment the product that you want to sell.

And because of that, the customer can just easily checkmark the Polish and add it to the cart.

But if you are selling a bespoke shoe and you are recommending a Cap or A Shirt.

Even though they might be in the same fashion niche…The fact that it doesn’t compliment each other is a lose out.

So, you must always make sure that you are selling something related to each other as a downsell.

 

2. Price Of The Product:

The price of the product that you’re trying to promote as a down-sell also matters in this type of case.

Normally, you should know by now that any product that you want to offer as a down-sell should not be of high price.

What this means is that… it must not be costly than the product the customer intends to buy.

You are only using this down-sell product as a support system to get more sales from a single customer.

And also to hold back a customer from purchasing in case he or she doesn’t want to buy the product he or she intended to buy.

So, it must be of low price – so that it can easily be affordable for them to add to the cart without thinking twice.

You want it to be something that they will easily add to the cart without thinking twice.

Just because they see it complimenting the product that you wanted to sell from the onset.

So, this is another part to take note of when you are trying to down selling of your products.

 

3. Accessibility Of The Product:

The process through which the customer will go through to access the product is also very important.

Do they need to still go through stress to buy any down-sell product?

Then you will easily lose out on some sales because people can procrastinate a lot.

That’s just the fact because even some might even want to buy the down-sell but just get distracted with other stuff.

So the best thing you can do here is to make the process very easy for them to add to any cart.

Don’t let them go through another checkout process for your down-sell when they have already gone through a checkout earlier.

You should already have a technique in position that will already have their details saved and automatically add the down-sell to their bills.

This way, you will save them a lot of stress and you won’t have to lose out on any sales.

The reason is that when they are making a purchase and you just bring out another product with a checkmark option.

The checkmark or tickmark option is already at the front of the down-sell product and nothing to stress.

They will just easily mark and it will be added to their cart which they will pay for easily without stress.

Kindly note that this is available and important for bother physical and digital products.

 

4. Aspects to show a Down-Sell:

There are some aspects where down-selling should come up in your selling process.

You cannot just fix down selling at any part of your website just to expect magic to happen.

Although I will discuss a little bit about where you should add your down-sell products in the next aspect of this guide.

But you should just have it in mind that you have to be careful with the way you do your down-sell.

That is why I advise anyone who is into e-commerce to try and always emulate what Amazon is doing.

It will enlighten you and make you know how well what to do and how to structure all your Downsells.

You can try and purchase and product and see what is being brought out for you and use the same logic.

Down selling comes up within a purchase and is not like Upselling that occurs after a purchase has been made.

So, that means that you don’t need to spend a dime to test this out.

Although, you should still be on a watch out for the next section of this guide for more knowledge.

 

 

How To Down sell Products

Although what I will be discussing a little bit here will be to buttress the aspect we just finished.

So, if you understand that clearly… You can easily jump to the benefits of down-selling.

Or you can just take time to study it a little bit because it will help you with any product you are selling.

  1. Make Sure It Complements Any Product You’re Selling.
  2. Make The Price Lower To Any Upsell. 
  3. Make It Easy To Buy. 
  4. Test Downsell From Different Products. 
  5.  Test Different Prices. 

 

1. Make Sure It’s Compliment Any Product You’re Selling:

The first thing you should keep in mind when you are doing down selling is that the product to downsell complements the one that the customer wants to buy.

I already explained what this means in the previous aspect of this guide which you just finished reading.

And to do this is very simple… just easily compare yourself and look at what you will buy to complement what you are offering.

If it’s a shirt sleeve that you want to sell… you can see (miss) as the down-sell to compliment the product.

Or if you are selling cake and have a website where you sell all your cakes.

You can decide to offer ice cream as the down-sell – so that when they are eating cake… they can also lick or suck ice cream alongside.

Anyway, I don’t lick ice cream nor lick cake…So, I wouldn’t know much about that. Hahahaha…

 

2. Make The Price Lower To Any Upsell:

Another one which we discussed earlier is that your price of Downsells must be lower than that of the actual product.

You cannot consider a product as a down-sell if the price is, even more, higher than the product the customer wants to buy.

It must be lower and by doing this… you can easily identify the product that complements what you are selling as-is less price.

If you compare the short sleeve and (miss) which I discussed earlier. You will know that (miss) is lesser to the shirt sleeve.

All you need to do is just to reason what you can put together to bring out the best result from a single visitor that enters your website.

It’s just as easy as that and you will see your website converting like crazy.

I believe we don’t need to do much explanation here since this aspect is more explainable?

 

3. Make It Easy To Buy:

Your down-sell must be very easy to buy and should not require any further stress from the customer.

If you still give the customer another reason to input his or her card details before purchasing the down-sell.

You will lose important sales from distractions just because they might change their mind.

Another thing that you have to consider I’d the fact that people procrastinate a lot and this can cost you a lot of loss.

So, make sure that it is very easy to add downsells to the cart.

If you are using the WooCommerce plugin on your website…Then adding down selling products to the cart is very easy.

As they won’t need to stress over adding. And if you are selling digital products – you will have some tools online like leadpages to bring the best out from your funnel.

 

4. Test Downsell From Different Products:

I do not believe anyone knows it all. Because even though those who claim to know it had to learn it the hard way.

So, don’t expect someone to stipulate the exact Product that you should downsell on your website.

And this is where many people stay disturbed for a long time – because they will keep waiting for who to spoon-feed them.

You need to test out all by yourself and do some comparison with several products.

Use several products as downsell for several items and don’t just rely on one product.

Most especially if you are even someone who is into Dropshipping.

You might want to consider doing this testing out a lot. I have seen some people into Private Label Dropshipping doing this.

They make sure to test low-cost products out with several high-cost products as down-sell before stabilizing it for a long while for the product.

 

5. Test Different Prices:

As you are testing different products… did I remind you to also test out different prices?

Oh yes, you should also test out prices and see the one that customers best flow within your Downsell.

And doing this, I don’t mean that you should change the figures in front of your down-sell products.

All that you need to do is just to use coupon codes for these products and give coupons.

You can do this with a high ticket product and just offer a discount on the purchase of that product as a downsell.

People like discounts a lot because it makes them feel special that they purchase something others bought at a higher price for a cheaper price.

That is why Black Fridays always sell well during Thanksgiving in the United States because people are always in anticipation of discounts.

So, you can also use this technique for your website and see your profit skyrocket.

 

Benefits Of Downselling

Let us quickly look at some of the benefits of down-selling before we wrap up this guide.

  1. Helps Retain Sales.
  2. Helps Sell Low-Cost Products.
  3. Helps Compliment Products Together

 

1. Helps Retain Sales:

One of the main benefits of down-selling is that it will help you to retain sales that you could have lost.

When you down-sell several products to a customer. You are making such a customer have another alternative to what they intend to buy.

This way, you can easily make more money just from any traffic that comes into your website.

One thing you have to know is that it takes effort for you to get traffic on your E-commerce store or a normal website.

Either it is free or paid… you need to pay attention and also give time for anything to work out.

And because of this… you must not take any traffic that comes into your website with levity.

You must make sure that you do everything possible for them to make a purchase and more purchases on your website.

That is the reason why down selling is in existence to bring you more sales.

So, that if you spend $1 to bring a customer inside your website.

You can easily get back $5 just from down-selling products aside from the actual product you are advertising.

This is a way to get extra benefit and also bring you more sales from low-cost products and also products that are not bringing many sales.

 

2. Helps Sell Low-Cost Products:

You can use this process to sell low-cost products. The reason is that running paid ads to low-cost products might feel skeptical.

Maybe products that are below $50 and you might be thinking of the best way to sell these products.

You can easily offer them as a down-sell and get them to bring and yield you more return on investment.

Selling low ticket products will make any effort you spend on your advert to count graciously.

You can easily get paid on these and also make more sales. Which will keep selling out your stock.

 

3. Helps Compliment Products Together:

Some products might not bring you many sales ever since you have them on your website.

Offering them as a down-sell by complimenting them with the fast-selling product will help a lot.

Even if it’s high value…You can easily give a discount on them and offer them as a bonus just like I have stated earlier.

This way, you start selling more of your products even with the less amount of money spent on the advert.

Also, this way – you keep running out of stock if you are selling physical products.

Also, you keep banking more cash if you are running a digital product store like selling E-Book or Video Courses.

 

Final Thoughts On Downselling

Down selling will bring you more sales and will also make you keep more customers.

That is the reason why you should make sure to include this technique in your marketing plan.

Either you are doing Dropshipping or you just have a website where you sell Affiliate products or your product.

Multi Store Online Shopping: Fun Facts About It

Multi Store Online Shopping

 It was just like a dream when a big brand like Amazon thought about launching a Multi-Store Online Shopping Platform without holding any product warehouse.

This way, it makes it very easy for online traders, retailers, and those who display their products easily and get sales.

Many online entrepreneurs believe that displaying their products on a Multi-Store Platform will bring more sales for them.

A platform like Amazon, AliExpress, Shopify, and the rest already have customers who come directly to the store.

They don’t necessarily need to rely on other sources to get visitors because they already have theirs.

So, online sellers have started using these platforms to display their products and get results in return.

Let us quickly go deep into what multi-store online shopping is all about. 

Below are the things you will learn from this guide:

 

What is a multi-store online shopping platform?

A multi-store online shopping platform is a website that gives room for many sellers to come to display their products and make sales in which a percentage of any sales made from selling a product goes to the website.

This is a fantastic way to make money online and grow a successful brand without needing to own a single product.

There are a lot of online sellers and manufacturers out there who have a lot of products at their storehouse.

If you can create a Multi-Store Shopping Platform for them where they can display their stuff – you have done them a huge favor and you will only charge them some percentage.

Instead of you trying to hold inventory of products – you are making money from other people’s products.

Also, you are the one in control of the details about the product, sales of the product, and also the distribution to customers.

So, it’s all handled by you – but you just have to know the basics about this.

There is some stuff that you have to know about Multi store or Multi-vendor online marketplace.

And that is what we are going to look at in the next aspects of this guide.

 

How to Manage Your Multiple Store Online Shopping Platform

  1. Create eCommerce content & SEO Strategies.
  2. Create a master inventory database.
  3. Specify niche and region for each store.
  4. Manage Content Effectively.

 

1. Create an eCommerce content & SEO Strategies:

To get a lot of people who are online sellers interested in what you have to offer.

Then you need to create a lot of eCommerce content and start optimizing your content for the Search engines to crawl it.

I tell people that the best way for them to get long-lasting results from their stress is by doing SEO.

Because it gives you the ability to keep increasing your revenue even without knowing where the source comes from.

You have to optimize your website and make it stay focused on anything eCommerce and online selling.

This is the way that many online sellers will get to know you and also create more close marking with your brand.

You have to know that the competition in this niche is tight and there are already a lot of big boys in this field.

Among them is a billionaire brand called “Amazon” which is owned by Jeff Bezos and is working hard daily to satisfy more of his audience.

Also, people are interested in getting sales – so, even if you promise them that they will make sales.

You have to deliver because it is very easy for them to register with your website without complaining.

So you need SEO to get real sellers who will display products on your store and also need buyers to find your website online.

Just imagine when you search for some products on Google – you will see Amazon at the top page.

That is the power of SEO and you will buy because you believe in Google.

 

2. Create a master inventory database:

You need to develop a quality database for your store because that is the way forward.

A lot of things will happen that might try to pull your down when you start getting the result on your platform.

There will be a lot of hackers trying to penetrate your website and you might even experience worse.

Sometimes even the hosting platform that you are using for your website can be an obstacle.

Because once they see that you have started developing and getting a lot of visitors – that is when they start charging your high.

Or start decreasing the loading capacity of the tour website and so many more which are not going to be revealed here in this guide.

But the best thing for you to do is to master your inventory database and make sure to secure your website.

Because you cannot afford to lose all the hard work that you have invested into your Multi-store platform.

When you have everything secured – it becomes easy for you to quickly move to another server.

If a server is not performing well, you can gladly move to another one which will save you the stress.

The sellers coming into your website are coming to load a lot of inventories on your website.

And you cannot afford to lose them – so, let your database be very solid to crack.

 

3. Specify niche and region for each store:

When you go on Amazon – you cannot see them jampack products all together in a scattered way.

They always have a niche and region for a separate types of products because this is what the sellers will follow.

Anytime they want to publish their products – they will have to select a category which the product falls to.

This makes it easy for buyers to just click on a category that wishes to get a product from and they will get recommendations of their target product.

Just imagine when searches for Shoe and start getting the chain saw as recommendations.

That is very bad and will only piss off your buyers which will make them bounce from the website.

That is why it is very important to segment your store and make it easy for each store to have its niches.

Don’t jampack products altogether- let there be niches where everyone can display what he or she has.

 

4. Manage Content Effectively:

Running a multi-store platform requires a lot of content on the website because a lot of sellers will be coming to display their products.

And selling these days requires a lot of detailed information for any buyer to decide on a purchase.

So, the need for effective content management is necessary which must be structured properly.

It is important to give a note for every product that is posted on the platform and handle it accordingly.

Also, an effective content structure must be made available in which you align the content in a way that will be easy for the customers to digest.

If you check out Amazon or AliExpress for example – you will see their content structure.

There is a place for customers to write reviews about what they experience with the purchase of the product.

There is an aspect for dropping questions and getting answers on a particular product.

There is an upsell and downsell aspect which makes it very profitable to earn more from a customer.

The review aspect is just very important because you cannot know how quality all the product is.

So, from the review – that is how you know products that should keep existing on your platform or the ones that should be banned.

 

How Multi-Store Online Shopping Benefits Your Customers

  1. They Provide an Easy Shopping Experience.
  2. Great communication.
  3. Maximize savings.
  4. Relating Details.
  5. It Builds Strong Relationships.
  6. Sincerity.

There are several ways through which a Multistore Online Shopping Platform benefits the customers

They have several benefits and that is what we will be reviewing in this guide below:

 

1. They Provide Easy shopping Experience:

The shopping experience is always easy and fun for customers in this type of store.

The reason is that it is just like a marketplace where people can easily buy from different kinds and types of sellers.

Just in a certain niche – there can be thousands of sellers who are displaying their wares.

So, buyers can keep navigating from one
Store to another just to search for the best to buy.

The majority are always in for the best product with a lesser price and that is why they always navigate a lot.

So, this reason is why shopping becomes fun for them and that is why anyone doing this type of business must create room for enough navigation.

There must be countless numbers of categories and niches in your platform where people can go to.

They can easily type out “iPhone” and they will see countless suggestions that will be in the aspect of iPhone.

Not typing “iPhone” and seeing “Ladies Bra” – that is why it is important to always create enough room in your Platform.

Because this is what will keep customers staying for a long time and not bouncing off from the platform.

Also, if you are doing affiliate approval and deal on the website… Affiliates can easily get a lot of products to promote.

This is why Amazon is winning big because there is enough room for navigation and sellers can display the way they wish.

 

2. Great communication:

Part of the reason why you must always manage your content effectively is to encourage great communication.

Sometimes, I enter some Multi-Store Shopping platforms and I won’t see any review space.

You must always encourage reviews from your customers because that is what will motivate future customers to buy and also leave their reviews.

Reviews are very important because it brings more communication between the customers and the company.

With multi-store shopping – there is better room for communication and dropping of the necessary information on the platform.

That is why buyers like this type of platform – they can navigate and see what people are saying from a different angle.

Unlike a single store where they are only limited to the reviews given on one store.

But here… there are a lot of stores to view from and if you don’t like the review from a certain store.

More rooms are available to go communicate and ask questions in another room or store where you can get an answer.

That is why a store like Amazon and AliExpress gives space for asking if questions about a product.

Where those who have used such a product will answer their thought about the product.

It is just to encourage more people to buy and also leave more thoughts about the product.

This is more like a Marketplace and so – it must be very friendly and communicating.

 

3. Maximize savings:

The moment customers start having the means to penetrate multi-stores and do their shopping.

They will have enough savings at hand because they can easily buy cheaply from several stores.

Unlike them just entering one store and they don’t have many alternatives because they are only limited to the things the online store owner presents them.

This is more than all that because they have several recommendations and can easily buy from cheaper brands.

When there are multiple stores to select and buy from – you can easily save a lot of money.

A product that should have cost you $100 can easily be bought at $80 from another store which you can easily keep the remaining change. 

Creating a multi-store platform is a stress for the Creator and CEO.

But it’s big savings and cruise for the buyers since they have a lot of alternatives to choose from.

So, savings are more encouraged for the buyer when products can be bought cheaper and easier.

Also, some bad products that should have been bought unknowingly would be executed.

The reason is that the buyers will be seeing reviews from other sellers who have bought it.

And because reviews are being controlled by the central unit – there is still less risk for the buyers.

 

4. Relating Details:

The information on a multi-store platform is always relevant and relating to what the customers are wanting.

The majority of the time – what they saw is even above their expectations.

Sometimes a buyer can only have plans to buy a certain product for a higher price than expected.

Then by the time he comes into the store – he will see another thing more superior to what he was expecting for a lesser price.

The reason is that there is a lot of relating content that is on the platform.

There are a lot of products and other recommendations that the buyers are seeing which is making them flex more.

Content on a particular category will always blend and make sense to the mind of the buyer.

This is just an experience we have all had as online buyers

You would have bought products from amazon or AliExpress before and you can see how well they structure stuff.

It’s something that even makes us buy more than what we budgeted sometimes when we see the quality and price the products are tagged.

That is why content must be very relevant when doing this kind of business.

Customers want something relevant and relating which will make them satisfied more.

 

5. It Builds Strong Relationship:

Multi-store online shopping builds strong relationships between customers and also with brands.

Whenever a purchase is made – customers are always eager to also come to relay their thoughts about the product.

Multi-store online shopping makes it very easy for a regular person to just build good relationships with several people.

Also, since a lot of people are navigating this store – they give out their best thoughts on why a product is good or bad.

Also, enough relationships do exist between the seller and the buyer because there is room for sincerity.

This gives more space for customers to engage more and also feel okay to ask more questions.

That is why you check out some comment sections – you will see some particular customers talking about the active rate of the seller.

They like a seller that is always active and ready to quickly reply.

And you will see them saying they will come back to always patronize the seller some other time.

This is the relationship that is being built on this platform because of the chat Interface between buyers and sellers.

And more room is available for continuity in case the buyer wants to buy.

So, a stronger relationship is being built between both parties because they are on a third-party platform.

 

6. Sincerity:

There is always adequate sincerity on multi-store online platforms because of the competition among sellers.

I was trying to buy a laptop recent from a platform where there are several sellers on it.

As I was asking them questions concerning what I needed in a laptop that I wish to buy – I can feel the sincerity from them.

They know that there is a lot of competition and if they should lie about what they have – it is going to backbite in their comment and review area.

So, it made them cere in what they are doing and always looking forward to more patronage from buyers.

This is the reason why as a buyer – I will always prefer to make use of multi-store platforms to make my purchase.

I was willing to buy the laptop for my sister who just gained admission into the college.

So, I needed some specifications that will suit her type and I was glad about the answers I was getting.

This is the major reason why many buyers like these kinds of a store because there room for many questions.

Also, looking at the aspect of sincerity – a seller knows that if he or she is not sincere enough.

The platform can ban his or her account and bounce him off from selling on that multi-store platform.

So, sincerity is always assured in this Platform.

 

Things To Take Note of When Launching Your Multi-Store Online Shopping Platform

  1. Offer Value-Added Services.
  2. Geographic Synchronization.
  3. Employ A Strict System.

 

There are some things that you have to take note of and jot down if you want to launch a successful multi-store eCommerce platform.

Since there will be a lot of traffic and it looks like you are creating a marketplace for many buyers and sellers.

Then you need to know that there are some things that you must put into consideration when setting things up.

There will be some minor things that you will take note of when trying to launch your platform.

But these few things stated here are very important so that you can have them in mind when doing things.

Let us dive deep into them right now!

 

1. Offer Value-Added Services:

You have to offer some value-added services to your multi-store platform to entice buyers to buy more and sellers to sell well.

You Major goal to launch a multi-store platform should be to protect the right and secure the safety of your customers.

Failure to secure the safety of your customers – then you will start experiencing some scammers and uncalled-for activities going on inside your platform.

You have to know that sellers will only keep coming ago into your platform only when buyers are buying.

But it is among the sellers that will want to ruin your goals if you are not careful.

Although they will be the ones to be listing out the products – they will also be the ones ruining the reputation of the brand.

So, value-added services like money-back guarantee, exchange of goods, delivery, customer protection rights are all included.

And every seller must be aware of all these – to be able to maintain a quality website.

The value that you are providing here is for the safety of your buyers just like I have stated earlier.

Your buyers are the ones who will be the Payoneer of the brand – they are just like the ones lifting the brand high.

So, always take proper accuracy of the way that you handle your website and make sure that all the Value-Added features are taken seriously.

 

2. Geographic Synchronization:

Another important feature that you have to take note of is the fact that there will be many sellers from different geographic locations.

If you are operating an international multi-store platform for example. If you are only operating locally – you don’t need this.

But if you are doing it internationally and need a lot of sellers coming and selling from different countries.

Then you need to take note of their timezone and take adequate measures on that.

A lot of sellers will be coming from several spheres of life and you have to make sure that their orders flow with their time.

Also, there must be focused emphasis made on buyers who come from their countries so that delivery can be easy.

You have to structure your platform in a way that, if a buyer comes from a particular country…

…the recommendations that should be shown to him or her should be from sellers who are from that same country.

This way, enough engagement can occur and they can both talk and close any deal they want to exchange.

But just imagine if a buyer is coming from another time zone and the seller is also in another time zone.

Most times, it might be when the seller is sleeping that the buyer will decide to place an order.

Or it might be that time that the buyer will want to ask some questions before buying.

And if the seller is sleeping – this will lead to a break in communication and the buyer might decide to leave and never come back.

So, you have to make sure that the time one of your buyers is directly related to that of the seller.

 

3. Employ A Strict System:

When you look at some top multi-store platforms out there – you will see that they employ a strict service.

Which makes it easy for them to control their platform and not make encounter rumor problems.

If you don’t try as much as possible to protect your platform – you will see experience internal problems with your platform.

That is why in one of the aspects of this guide above – I talked about the reason why you must make sure to keep your buyers as the priority.

This is something that platforms like Amazon are inculcating because they don’t joke with their customers.

And if there is any seller that misbehaves – he or she will be blocked from selling on the platform.

The truth about this is that you will be tagged some names that are bad by the sellers because of your strict system.

But this is important because – sellers who will uplift the dignity of the brand in the view of the buyers will stay.

And this way you will be able to maintain. A high standard in anything that you are doing concerning your brand.

It’s just a matter of trying hard to maintain a good reputation for your multi-store platform.

That way, you keep progressing with whatever you are doing.

 

Conclusion

As a buyer and lover of Multi-Store Online Shopping – I like the fact that there is enough competition and the ability to select among multitudes.

Unlike a single store where I am only limited to the products and activities on the store.

That is why the Multi-Store Online platform is also a nice business for anyone thinking of just doing a business online.

You can easily be doing this without holding any inventory of goods since all the products will be posted by other sellers.

So, this is a very nice business to launch and I wish you the best of luck in it if you decide to launch it.

Also, make sure you take note of the quality information given in this guide to work well with your plan.

Drop Surfing: Is Drop Surfing Different From Dropshipping?

Drop Surfing

The internet Exchanging Gooroos have thought about another cool tactic to sell their courses and they introduced Drop Surfing.

It is just another internet marketing keyword that is related to Dropshipping and we will discuss it in this guide.

I have been asked about what Drop Surfing is all about and whether it’s a profitable business.

But it just makes me wonder that – is there anything special about this that my readers shouldn’t know about.

Drop Surfing is not something difficult to do and you are going to learn the majority of the basics about it here.

Although, it’s a perfect strategy that every Dropshippers should know about – it doesn’t worth it to spend thousands of dollars on any Gooroos course just to learn it.

Let us, deep-dive, into what Drop Surfing is all about.

Here are the things  you will learn from this guide below “

Now, grab a cup of coffee with me and let us roll.

 

What is drop surfing?

Drop Surfing is an aspect of online B2B purchase where a Dropshipper doesn’t make use of a single supplier in his purchase.

A Dropshippers makes use of several suppliers bases on the one that suits his price budget.

That means that if a Dropshippers wants to purchase 10 shoes to send to his customers.

He won’t just go with a single supplier who is selling those shoes… he will go to different suppliers to look for several shoes.

He can purchase one shoe from supplier A, purchase another from supplier B, purchase another one from supplier C, and like that till he completes his purchase.

Is this kind of purchase and online business strategy good? Well, this is something we do in our daily lives.

Kindly know that majority of the Dropshipping suppliers now have their logistics and store.

They have started making life easy for Dropshippers – so when I talk about a purchase.

You should know what I mean about Suppliers that are both doing eCommerce for Business to Business.

And also doing the delivery for their Dropshippers who are making use of their services.

Let us immediately look at what Drop Surfing is about and how it is different from Dropshipping.

 

Drop surfing VS Dropshipping

Even though Drop Surfing is derived from Dropshipping – it has a little bit of difference which made the coaches differentiate it to sell their courses.

So, let us quickly look into the first one which is Dropshipping – since you already know what Drop Surfing is…

We can easily explain why Dropshipping is different from it and why people are falling into buying courses for Drop Surfing.

 

Dropshipping E-commerce Products

  1. Pre-set Prices By Suppliers.
  2. One Supplier.
  3. Lack of Variety Of Suppliers.
  4. Minimum profit maximization.

 

1. Pre-set Prices By Suppliers

In Dropshipping, the prices are pre-setup by the supplier which means that you just have to go with anything that you see.

This is major. After all, you are only entitled to a supplier because you don’t want to get scammed.

The major reason why people focus on single Dropshipping and not Drop Surfing is their timidity about getting scammed.

This is good because you cannot afford to keep moving from one supplier to the other and get scammed by one of them.

So, because of this – you will only be entitled to a supplier who would have set up everything as one.

This means you can’t even negotiate on the price or decide to buy cheap because it’s already set up.

Dropshipping is this way, you cannot do things the way you wish that much because it’s set up for you.

The major reason why this is been done by suppliers is to eliminate time wastage.

So, a certain price tag is always placed on their products, shipping, and logistics.

And you just have to flow with it since you don’t have much experience with Dropshipping and you are new to it.

So, once you see the prices fixed – you go with the supplier’s recommendation in Dropshipping.

 

2. One Supplier:

In Dropshipping, you are mostly fixed with one supplier as the seller and distributor for your products.

That means – you are just focused on using one supplier even though you are paying a high price or not even buying quality products.

Just as for a newbie – this is something that you will experience because you don’t want to lose your money.

This is cool for a start because this is what will motivate you towards taking other steps in your Dropshipping business.

Most of the time, your supplier might even be the one who sold you a course and teach you about Dropshipping.

So, you wouldn’t want to change such a supplier and just flow with him or her because he or she is your mentor.

This is what Dropshipping is about – because you get stocked with a mentor.

I like to call it a single-line Dropshipping which means you are just moving along a single line.

You didn’t bother to research about any other cheaper and more qualified supplier than the one you are using.

So, is this enticing enough for you or not? It depends on your stage in the B2B eCommerce niche.

Everything is about stages – so, you can still stay fixed with one supplier when you are starting.

But this is not how Drop Surfing work! How does it work? Roll up your sleeves and let’s flow along.

 

3. Lack of Variety Of Suppliers:

Just like I have stated above – you are only stocked with one supplier who will be doing all your purchases and deliveries.

So, you won’t have the chance to price several products just the way you like.

Even if there is free shipping in a product which the gain should have come to your pocket.

You will just buy it from your supplier or have your supplier help you buy it because you are scared.

“OMG! I don’t wanna lose my mooonnnney!!!”

This is where the supplier keeps getting rich and making money because they know how timid new Dropshippers are.

Is it not cool this way, Maverick?

Oh yes, it is but once it gets to a level where you have to understand the logic and basics of Dropshipping.

You need to upgrade to Drop Surfing!!! Because you are also in this business to win!

But for now, you don’t have any choice or varieties of products and services to check from.

Everything is focused on just a single supplier who keeps giving you a fixed price on point.

 

4. Minimum profit maximization:

Well, you would have already known that your profit cannot be compared to that of a drop surfer.

Because the person doing Drop Surfing will easily buy a $70 product you got from another supplier for $40.

The $30 difference is what makes their profit keeps booming while you don’t have a lot of positive returns.

So, Dropshipping is in the range of not truly maximizing your profit a lot – just the way you planned it.

Although, you will be seeing some results from your paid adverts and your organic reach.

But a majority of the glory will keep going to your supplier who is making use of your sweat to earn more.

The only way this can maximize your profit is if you got a single supplier who is also selling very cheaply.

And maybe even other suppliers are coming to buy from them – and this is very rare because the suppliers who sell cheaply don’t have time for deliveries.

So, you will still need another supplier who will still be raking money from you.

Also, can a single supplier produce all types of goods? Nope!

So, in the aspect of clearing and delivering – you will still be stocked with a single supplier who will still give you a fixed price.

Because you are in Dropshipping and you won’t have the chance to test out other suppliers who can deliver cheaply in their services.

So, Drop Surfing is not like this and it’s purely different which we will quickly talk about below.

But just know that your profit maximization with a single supplier will be low since you don’t have many price choices.

 

Drop Surfing eCommerce Products

  1. Various available suppliers.
  2. Find the supplier with a minimum price range among other Suppliers.
  3. You can include your preferred price.
  4. Great possibility of profit maximization.

 

1. Various available suppliers:

In Drop Surfing – there are a lot of suppliers to select and buy from without just sticking with one.

You will see a lot of products in a different market that suits what you are truly looking for.

Also, you can easily compare suppliers to the one that is the cheapest that will flow with your budget.

This is the major reason why Drop surfing is cool because you can select from multitudes.

It is more like you go to your local market to buy some Products and you keep buying from one seller to another.

This way, you are not just sticking with one supplier like you are doing in Dropshipping.

You are making use of a lot of suppliers who will help you in the purchase and delivery of your products to your customer.

Drop Surfing is not limited to only one supplier but multiple suppliers.

That is why it is different from Dropshipping and that is why it keeps a majority of the successful Dropshippers prefer Drop Surfing.

 

2. Find the supplier with a minimum price range among other Suppliers:

In Drop Surfing – you keep looking for the supplier that can sell at a cheaper price for you and not the one that will be fixed.

It’s just like moving along the market and looking for a seller that can sell at a cheaper price for you.

There are a lot of suppliers all over the world and you shouldn’t decide to settle for less.

That is the theory that Drop Surfing is trying to prove to us and that is why it is effective.

This is something different because you can keep moving from one supplier to another just to get the lowest price

This is why Drop Surfing is different from Dropshipping because the latter only needs you to stay fixed with a supplier.

Although, there are some risks associated with doing Drop Surfing than just relying on one supplier.

But it is important to know that Drop Surfing tries to minimize cost and the money you should have been spending on suppliers.

You can easily look at the best cheap product from a wide range of suppliers and select from them.

Also, because it is very competitive out there – you can easily negotiate with the suppliers and get them to solve your problem.

 

3. You can include your preferred price:

It is very easy for you to just include your preferred price when you are doing 

Reason being that the gain is much for you and be rest assured on whichever price you are using.

When you are buying cheaply – selling higher and using any price that you want it becomes very easy for you.

Because you know that you are not relying on just one supplier who you don’t know whether is extorting you or not.

Some product you should have bought for $20 per piece is what you are buying for $70 just from using a single supplier.

Which is burning you out and taking a lot of money from you and because of that – you will want to be careful with the price that you are tagging.

You will want to make things easy and not want to charge much so that you can get the customer.

But if you are buying at the lowest price possible with drop surfing…

…You will comfortably and easily select the price that you want to fix conveniently.

Sales will be easy to make and you wouldn’t need to keep biting your finger on which price to set.

Even if you set little for your preferred product price – you still know that you’ve got double gain.

 

4. Great possibility of profit maximization:

Wowza!!! You will see your profit just maximizing and you keep growing and progressing more.

With Drop Surfing – profit maximization will skyrocket and you will experience a high rate of return on investment.

Although, does this means that you won’t get the same with Dropshipping – no….

…but the profit maximization for those doing drop Surfing is more than those doing normal Dropshipping.

If you are making use of just a single supplier – you won’t even know if you are truly on the right or wrong path.

So you just have to keep enjoying the process of the same result almost every month end.

Which is not what you want – you want something different that can bring you more sales.

That’s why Drop Surfing is making a lot of money for the successful Dropshippers.

But instead of them just giving it a simple name like Multiple Usage of Dropshipping suppliers…

…they name it Drop Surfing just to get people to buy their courses and they make money from that.

Well, who doesn’t like to make money – but it’s not worth it for you to still invest any money on a course for this.

 

Best Benefits of Drop Surfing

Everything will always have its benefits and the way Dropshipping has its advantage – so also does Drop Surfing has its Benefits.

So, it is always advantageous to take note of the benefits so that you can use it as a benchmark towards getting success with it.

Although everything always comes with its shortcomings – you can easily see what the benefits are here.

So, let us quickly discuss what the benefits of Drop Surfing are and how it can boom your E-commerce B2B business.

  1. Low capital is required to startup
  2. Expand the business with low cost
  3. Less product distribution stress
  4. It makes you stick to the trend
  5. Different variety of products
  6. Zero overhead cost

1. Low capital is required to startup:

Dropshipping itself generally and anything business-to-business eCommerce requires a low budget.

You can easily start Drop Surfing with a minimum amount without needing to have high investment capital.

Since all the products you are promoting are not yours as a retailer – you only need to have a website.

The only capital that you will be needing is the capital to build a website and buy a hosting and domain.

If you are even someone who makes use of BigBuy Dropshipping as your supplier and agent.

They already have a store that is prebuilt for their Dropshippers – although, it is not free and you will need to pay something around $750 for it.

It’s not on the low side though but if you can afford it – you can easily go for it and get yourself started.

But it is always worth it because everything is already made for you and you don’t have to keep installing plugins and themes to use.

Also, the BigBuy products are already in it and you will only need a dedicated ID that will be given to you.

But if you don’t have much – you can easily install WordPress and build an eCommerce website with the WoCommerce Plugin.

Also, the remaining can be used to run paid adverts that will bring customers to your store.

So… you don’t need a lot of capital to do Drop Surfing… With as little as $100 – you can kick start Drop Surfing.

 

2. Expand The Business With Low Cost:

When you don’t have any store rent that you have to pay for OR any tax from the government.

Why wouldn’t the business boom? It will because you are doing everything from the comfort of your home without holding any inventory.

All the products are stores at your supplier’s warehouse and you as a Dropshipping retailer only need to promote.

So, once sales are coming in – it becomes easy for you to keep expanding the business.

You will start expanding and penetrating other niches which you have not considered before.

You can start running ads on several platforms that are not part of your plans before.

I tell my readers that their audience will always be on any platform no matter what.

If you only started with Facebook adverts to be getting customers – once you start seeing good revenue.

You need to start expanding to other platforms like YouTube or Google to get customers.

This is the ability that Drop Surfing gives you because you don’t hold any inventory.

You only have to get a sale before you purchase which you would have already made a profit from it.

 

3. Less Product Distribution Stress:

There is less product distribution stress in Dropshipping and so is it also available in Drop Surfing.

You are only doing everything online and not holding any inventory – so no distribution from your end.

Every distribution and clearing will be done by your supplier who will be your logistics brand.

Also, your delivery cost would have already been charged alongside the price of the product.

So, there is less cause for needing to do deliveries all by yourself.

And since you will be operating Pay Before Delivery on your eCommerce retailing and Dropshipping brand.

You don’t need to bother about any panic about whether your customers will show up to collect their offers.

Because it is very much assured that they will come to collect the product that you are selling.

Just always make sure that you are making use of Blind Dropshipping in your drop surfing business.

More details about Blind Dropshipping and everything it entails is explained in this guide 

When you add this with Drop Surfing – it becomes authentic that the products are yours.

Many Dropshipping Retailers don’t quickly get this because everything written on the product package must clearly show that it is from you.

So, your Dropshipping supplier must edit the package with your details to show that it comes from you.

More details about Blind Dropshipping once again can be found here 

 

4. It Makes You Stick To The Trend:

The ability to stick to the trends that are going on will give you a fast result in the Drop Surfing strategy.

Drop Surfing makes it very easy for anyone to quickly make success and this alone will make one stick with it.

Just imagine seeing a lot of results just from doing something and you have no choice but to stick with it.

That is the power that Drop Surfing has because how won’t you want to continue when you are seeing enough results.

Things are going cheaply and acting fastly because you are buying products and retailing cheaply.

You are not sticking with just one supplier who will only be charging you a specific amount and you won’t have any choice to bargain.

But in this, you are having a lot of suppliers to work with and a lot of brands to patronize.

You can easily decide that you want to choose a product and not choose the other product.

So, tell me why you wouldn’t stick with the trend of drop Surfing with all these amazing benefits.

Life would have been hard if we go to the market and there is only one seller of a product.

But when there are several brands – it becomes easy for us to decide whether to buy a product or not.

 

5. Different Variety Of Products:

There are a lot of products for you to buy in drop surfing because competition is everywhere.

A supplier or a brand will always give out a quality product for a lesser price than you would be surprised about it.

Different varieties of products are available for you to buy and you don’t have to stay with one brand.

Except if you see that such product is quality that is coming from a brand and your customers are liking it.

That is the only way you can decide that you only want to stay with a certain brand but aside from that – there is enough room for choice.

You have several choices which you can flow with and stick with the trend of anyone that is working properly.

The room for many products in drop surfing will make you easily move to another niche if you want to expand.

You can easily open a new website and start Dropshipping about it and start earning extra income from it.

 

6. Zero Overhead Cost:

Overhead cost in Drop Surfing is ZERO because you are doing all your activity virtually.

Also because you are not even holding inventory and you are keeping your stocks at the suppliers’ warehouse…

…you have no overhead cost to pay because you are easily doing things from your computer.

Your website is your store where all your activities are flowing and customers are making a purchase.

You are not in any way paying for anything physical or paying for any tax.

That is the melody and advantage you get for being a Drop Surfer.

These are the few things that you should know about drop Surfing that should make you take immediate action on it.

Although it is kinda like Dropshipping and the only difference is that you are not sticking with a single supplier.

 

Conclusion

A cool way to earn money online is through eCommerce and part of it is Drop Surfing which is from Dropshipping.

So, if you haven’t started considering doing Drop Surfing – you have to start it.

By not sticking with just one supplier or product vendor and start penetrating several suppliers and vendors.

This way, you can start buying at the lowest price possible.

Below Is What Will Be Discussed In This Content;

So, first, let us look at what Private Label Dropshipping means and the benefits that you stand to enjoy from doing it. 

 

What is Private Label Dropshipping?

Dropshipping is the act of promoting and selling other brands’ products majorly through an online store that belongs to you and clearing the products to your customers’ location.

In doing this, you are not the owner of the product – but you are only promoting it, and when an order comes from your store…

…you immediately contact the supplier and send it straight to the customer’s location.

Also, the brand name that will be on these products will be that of the producer or supplier.

The same is also applied to private label Dropshipping but the difference is that your brand name will be imprinted on these products.

This means, once an order arrives from your store and the customer pays.

You will immediately contact your supplier to send your branded label product to the customer.

Although this involves more extra steps than the normal Dropshipping it has its benefits.

Let us quickly look at the benefits of Private Label Dropshipping which you need to know.

 

Benefits of Private Label Dropshipping for Your Brand

Some benefits apply to Private Label Dropshipping and we will be talking about them in this guide.

  1. Improves Brand Awareness.
  2. Increases Profit Margins.
  3. Lower Operating Costs.
  4. Reduces Production Stress.
  5. Builds Brand Loyalty.

1. Improves Brand Awareness:

Can you dropship with custom packaging?

The ability to improve brand awareness is the advantage of doing private label Dropshipping.

When you start having a branded label for your Dropshipping products – then your awareness keeps improving.

Matter of fact, that is the Genesis of you growing a successful brand and even having a manufacturing company.

Because your brand name will now be known by many people who are already using your product.

Whenever the products are being used by your customers – people will always see your brand name on them. 

Now, guess what – you shouldn’t just stay complacent with this – you should have a social media presence for this brand.

Because that is where your prospective customers are going to research to see more of your brand.

So, your awareness will keep growing and before you know it – you see yourself having a company owned by yourself.

Although this takes a lot of dedication and consistency and also delivery of quality products.

You cannot expect to have your brand label imprinted on crappy products and anticipate a fantastic turn-up.

No! People are not going to patronize you and this will hurt your young brand that is just developing.

So, the ability to get a lot of awareness when doing this – is the first benefit that will easily make your brand name or become a household name.

Some top brands do this type of business up till now – a company like Nike does this.

Not all shoes are produced by them, they also outsource some and imprint their brand name in form of Dropshipping.

So you are in the right business and should be happy to kickstart an awesome Private Label Dropshipping business.

 

2. Increases Profit Margins:

Now with Private Label Dropshipping, your profit margin will increase over time.

And the reason for this is because you can easily Increase the prices placed on these products since they are automatically yours.

Anything that has your brand name on it belongs to you – so, you don’t necessarily need to be scared.

But the amazing thing is that your profit margin will skyrocket which is a fantastic benefit.

Now, once people see more about your product on other people’s body parts.

They will go online to search for your brand and your website, right?

And since you are Dropshipping the best products and labeling them as yours – you will see a lot of requests.

Even some might not be close friends to your customers – but just with your label which they have seen.

They will get in touch with you and you start getting customers whom you are not spending a dime in the aspect of time or money to get.

You are easily getting these customers on a platter of gold and they will keep coming to your websites and platforms.

That’s why you see some successful marketers always surprise when they get a lot of orders.

They will be surprised because their adverts don’t convert that much and they haven’t experienced such turn-up.

It is the benefit of rendering the best service and also labeling their business which people already know about.

If you are to be doing a normal Dropshipping business – no customer will know that a product belongs to you.

Because it is the producer or supplier’s brand that will be written on the product.

So, you will need to keep finding more ways to get new customers for your manufacturing brand.

And these customers will keep contacting your manufacturers again and again.

But when the products are yours – you will be the one they will keep coming back to.

 

3. Lower Operating Costs:

Dropshipping

Now, when it comes to producing a product all by yourself – you know the amount of operational cost that you will incur.

A lot of overhead expenses that you have to settle daily, weekly, monthly, and yearly is not an easy investment.

But when you are doing Private Label Dropshipping – you have eliminated all these expenses.

Because they have been produced for you and all that you need is just add your private label.

So, you don’t have to produce goods by yourself because you have already bypassed all that.

Your manufacturing company has incurred all that cost for you and you don’t have to employ workers.

All that you need to do is just work more on your marketing process and keep scaling at the top.

So, the only operational cost that you are incurring is the marketing cost of going customers every day and the cost of printing.

And is that even a cost? I doubt that! Your marketing budget is an investment that is always yielding out extra profit for you.

So, private label Dropshipping is a very profitable business for anyone trying to own their brand.

You are not incurring any cost that should have been needed to run a big company and produce those products.

And the thing about these labels is that some manufacturing companies can even help you imprint your brand label without you making use of any supplier or middle agent.

 

4. Reduces Production Stress:

is private labelling profitable?

The stress of producing products all by yourself is reduced either you are good at anything.

If you are very good at producing footwear for example just with local materials that are within your neighborhood.

You might not need to stress yourself much with producing your footwear because you already have products available on Dropshipping websites.

You can just easily send them what you need and chat with the manufacturers to send your customers the footwear.

Also, your brand name is imprinted on the footwear since you are doing Private Label Dropshipping.

This benefit alone is also a very important aspect because you don’t need to stress yourself with production.

Your focus should be majorly on the marketing aspect of promoting your Dropshipping store.

I have to be frank with you – the cost and expenses that manufacturers incur in the aspect of production are much.

That is why many marketers are happy that an opportunity like Dropshipping exists and the ability to even private label their brands.

So, this is a great opportunity for anyone who is thinking of owning their brand and becoming a top brand.

Your social media followers will increase and if you are even going the extra mile to collect email subscribers – you will have a lot of quality subscribers.

The indulgence of anybody in Private Label Dropshipping is the beginning of building loyal fans.

Your brand will become top-notch and you will begin to compete among other brands.

All these are done without you having any idea of how the products are being produced and also without even having any inventory.

The products are kept at your suppliers warehouse and you don’t even have any idea of how the product looks.

Except if you just want to order a piece for yourself to check it out and see how it looks.

Now, this is something many of the brands out there that you see having thousands to millions of social media followers are doing.

They have no idea of how the production phase of the product goes and don’t even know the production costs.

Steps In Launching Your Private Label Drop shipping Brand

There are several steps involved in launching a profitable private label Dropshipping brand.

These steps are very important because it is what will determine your success in this line of business.

And we will go deep  into discussing them in the next aspect of this guide. So, let us dive deeper.

  1. Brainstorm the Best Niche For Your Dropshipping. Business.
  2. Design a catchy eCommerce website.
  3. Upload your Dropshipping Products.
  4. Promote your Dropshipping brand.

1. Brainstorm the Best Niche For Your Dropshipping Business:

What is private label drop shipping?

The first thing that you have to do as a Dropshipper is to brainstorm the most profitable niche for your brand.

You need to go with the niche that you have seen a lot of successful people or a few successful people in it.

Also, you should desist from niches that are saturated – although people do say that we have no competitors.

And that we are our greatest competitors but what you have to know is that there is a lot of goodies in the niches that are not saturated.

If for example, you are going into the fashion niche – you will automatically know that there are a lot of competitors in the fashion niche.

But you can always dig down in this fashion niche to look at some sub-niches that can help you scale-out

I hope you understand what we are implying here?

So, instead of just focusing fully on fashion generally and moving from one fashion product to another.

It is best to just channel your energy on a sub-niche in that fashion aspect.

If you are a mother who already has experience in babies – you can easily focus on the “Clothes for babies” niche.

Then people will already know that your brand is fully focused on anything babies wear.

This is the way to scale up and the reason for this is because you cannot continue to rely on paid adverts all the time.

You also have to use organic methods to get customers in any way possible and the only way organic can work for you is when you are fully focused on a niche.

When you are focused on a niche – you will be known for that aspect and your Private Label Dropshipping brand will quickly scale.

So, your priority should be on the best sub-niche that you should focus on and not just go into something generic.

 

2. Design a catchy eCommerce website:

when you're selling products under your own brand

Now, another important aspect that is the next step of your private label Dropshipping business is the website.

You have to design your website in an E-commerce way – that customers can easily read and buy.

Now, if I am to advise – I will prefer you design your Dropshipping website in a way that gives a full explanation of a product.

And not just design it like the normal Dropshipping or E-commerce website that we do see.

Since you are not involving in the shipping and clearing of the product by yourself.

Spend time to give the best effort to the marketing aspect of your business.

Because when you give a detailed explanation of your products and you have already included your brand label in the picture. 

And also, you give it explanation just like the way Amazon gives enough explanation of their products.

You can easily go on Amazon.com to see how they list their products.

And when you click on each product – you will see enough detailed explanation given on each product.

These are the things that will convince someone to buy from your Dropshipping website.

So, don’t just upload images of a product and write a short caption and leave it hanging.

That is why I advise you to focus on sub-niches where you can write more words on and dominate.

Also, you can easily go on YouTube to watch Free tutorials on how to design an E-commerce store.

Or you can hire some website designers on Upwork to design a very catchy website for you.

3. Upload your Dropshipping Products:

Why Private labels are getting more popular?

Now that you have set up your Dropshipping website and it now looks ready for serious work.

The next aspect is to upload some products on your Dropshipping website and this is where your work starts.

Look, you cannot afford to keep outsourcing things – the only aspect I can advise you to outsource is the aspect of website creation.

But in the aspect of uploading products on your Dropshipping website and creating valuable content for it.

It is advisable that you are the one doing it all by yourself or you can hire someone that you will be paying little cash per month.

But when starting – make sure to be the one doing it yourself – so that life can be easy for you.

That is why your website must be a WordPress Dropshipping website that will be easy for you to access.

Always make sure that you tell the website developer to develop your Dropshipping website with WordPress.

Also, I made mention going to YouTube to watch Free tutorials on how you can design an E-commerce or Dropshipping website on YouTube.

There are a lot of free tutorials that you will always find on YouTube concerning the creation of e-commerce or Dropshipping websites.

Also, you can go there to look for tutorials on how to make use of WordPress to upload E-commerce products.

But always make sure that you write detailed guides on each product just like I implied earlier.

Don’t just upload products and expect miracles to happen.

Also, on your website – make sure that you are writing review guides – to rank on the search engine of Google.

Billions of people search for solutions and products every day on Google – so, make sure that you are writing articles that will rank on Google.

Review articles that talk about the difference between products A & B Is a nice article that will bring you money organically from the search engines on your website.

 

4. Promote your Dropshipping brand:

How much does private labeling cost?

It’s time to promote your private Label Dropshipping website.

Just like I stated, you cannot fully rely on using paid adverts all the time to promote your website.

You have to make use of both paid and organic ways to promote your Private Label Dropshipping website.

Because this is the only way for you to easily attain success in your private label Dropshipping line.

So, you can always run paid adverts to your website and reach a lot of people within few days.

Now, let me quickly give you free knowledge which other gurus will charge you a high amount to teach.

the majority of the dropshipping gurus don’t even know about what I am about to share with you.

Now, if you want to run paid adverts – don’t just run paid adverts to your website homepage.

Or run an advert for a particular product on your website and expect sales to skyrocket and miracles to happen.

No! The best way for you to run paid adverts and get successful with it – is by running paid adverts to a review article.

Just like I stated earlier that you should be writing a review article on your Dropshipping website.

You are supposed to run paid adverts to a review article that talks about a topic and now give recommendations of different products they can buy on your website to solve that problem.

It’s just like when you go to consult a dentist for a tooth problem and the dentist educates you on what’s wrong and what you shouldn’t do.

And now gives you medicine as a solution to your problem which you have to buy at their pharmacy.

That is exactly what you are doing here… you will write a detailed guide on a problem around your niche.

Then, give them your products as a solution and recommendation to help make life easy for them.

This is the way to make every cent you invest in paid adverts work for you.

You can easily run Facebook, Google, Or YouTube Adverts for your Dropshipping store.

Depending on what type of product that you are selling and which platform your audience is always available on. 

 

How To Do Private Label Dropshipping

The next aspect of this guide is how you can start doing Private Label Dropshipping.

How can start doing your private label Dropshipping after you’re done creating your website and promotion?

Although, you need to have all these ready before you should start promoting your Dropshipping store.

So, let us go deep into how you can do your Private Label Dropshipping successfully without any glitches.

  1. Create Your Business Plan.
  2. Research For The Best Product.
  3. Get A Very Good Dropshipping Supplier.
    Get Your Quotation
  4. From Supplier.
  5. Store Your Goods At Their Warehouse.
    Instruct The Suppliers On Any Order.

 

1. Create Your Business Plan:

How do I find private suppliers for dropshipping?

The first thing that should be your priority is to create a business plan for your Private Label Dropshipping.

When you have a business plan in place – everything becomes easy for you.

Because any entrepreneur without a plan is very much likely to fail and even if your plan is not going as planned – your decision must remain intact.

So, you need to build a plan concerning how much you have at hand and how much you want to invest in printing your label and promotion.

Also, you need to have a niche in mind that will be successful and can be the profit you.

I already talked about selecting a niche in the other aspect of the guide – but you must select a profitable niche.

Also, when your niche is not too Saturated – you can easily start getting high conversion in SEO.

Your Dropshipping website can also have a blog area that will be ranking high on the search engine of Google.

So, having a business plan is important as that is what will help you attain early success in Private Label Dropshipping.

 

2. Research For The Best Product:

How do I create a private label?

Just like I stated earlier in the benefit aspect of this guide, you are supposed to research for the best products.

Now, to do Dropshipping – websites like Alibaba.com, AliExpress.com, and 1688.com are the platforms where you can get cheap and quality products.

Now, many people do say Chinese products are crap and not good.

But that’s blasphemy because those lamenting that are also surfing these websites.

They go to these websites to buy products and resell in their country and keep saying others shouldn’t buy from Chinese manufacturers.

The majority of the products on Earth are made in China and even majority of the products on Amazon are china products.

So, these websites I just revealed here are Chinese websites where you can easily get your products at extremely cheaper rates.

Now, among the websites – the one where you can buy at the cheapest rate is 1688.com.

But it’s a Chinese website and you need to keep translating from Chinese to English before you can transact successfully.

The website is mainly for Chinese and not for foreigners – but Alibaba and AliExpress are for foreigners.

So, you can easily make use of AliExpress and Alibaba to do your research on the best products to buy.

They have quality products – you only need to look at the review of each product and see what people are saying.

Don’t go for products that don’t have good reviews – go for products that have like 5 Stars reviews.

That is the best way to get the best product on this website.

 

3. Get A Very Good Dropshipping Supplier:

Can you dropship private label?

Now, once you are doing your Dropshipping, it won’t be easy for you to do the clearing.

So, you need to have some suppliers that will help you in the aspect of sending your products to your customers.

The manufacturers don’t deal much with sending of products and it might even take months for the products to arrive.

You know, since you are fully focused on Private Label Dropshipping – you need to customize your products to your label.

And you have to keep sending each customized product to your customers who have ordered from your website.

So, you cannot rely fully on the manufacturers because they won’t have the time to keep doing all these.

They only deal in bulk ordering and not helping you do the distribution to final consumers.

So, you need a supplier that is a professional in this aspect which will help you to be doing all these.

Some suppliers are even good I’m doing the private labeling for you.

They will help you order and you will pay them for the private labeling or printing.

So, getting a supplier is important and the supplier that I will recommend in this guide are (Printful and Dripshipper).

You can click on the words and you will be redirected to their website. I am not an affiliate for them.

I only recommend them base on how good they are – so, you can check out their website and get in touch with them.

 

4. Get Your Quotation From Supplier:

Getting your quotation from your supplier is trying the next aspect because they will always send you your bills.

Like, when some printing has been done on your product or when some delivery wants to happen.

This is when you will get quotations from your suppliers – now, the goods would have been in their warehouse.

This means that you are not the one in the maintenance of it, you only rent a space in their warehouse.

They will be the ones doing the maintenance and supplying of the products to your customers.

They will also be the ones to chat with the manufacturer of your products and get them delivered to their warehouse.

All that you are doing is just to control how things work and the number of goods that will be ordered.

They are more like your top-notch errand boy that will keep doing all the stress you should have been involved in.

The work of your suppliers is much and so when they give you the bill – respect it…Although don’t fall victim.

Dig deep into doing your calculations and make sure that everything is going in the right order.

 

5. Store Your Goods At Their Warehouse:

I made mention of this earlier – it is necessary to know that your goods will be stored at their warehouse.

If you are doing Dropshipping – It means that the products are not even getting to your warehouse.

Everything is directly from the manufacturer to consumers – but just because it is private label.

You will be producing in a few quantities and you cannot store them in your manufacturer’s warehouse.

Except if you chat well with their representative to help with that.

Also, even if you chat well with a representative – it will take a little bit of time for them to deliver.

Chinese big E-commerce merchants have a lot of orders that they are handling daily.

And their delivery service is just not worth it sometimes – so, it is better to just produce in bulk and store at your supplier’s warehouse.

Also, always make sure that any supplier that you are using lives in your targeted country and can also supply International.

The reason why I stated the targeted country is because if you are living in India for example…

…and you want to be running paid adverts to US people or your organic content is driving traffic from majorly us citizens.

You have to make sure your supply is from the US – that way delivery can be very fast and smooth.

So, that is why you always have to save your products at the warehouse of your suppliers.

And make sure you know where your target audience is coming from before you select t a supplier.

Although, if your suppliers can deliver internationally within few days – it’s also cool.

 

6. Instruct The Suppliers On Any Order:

Once marketing is going smoothly and sales are coming steady – you will only have to keep instructing your suppliers to proceed with orders.

So, they will send your goods straight to your customers and you will get a confirmation of the delivered goods.

Just make sure that you put much pressure on your marketing so that the business can flow.

Your suppliers will do all the necessary work for you since they are more like delivery agents.

Also, what you have to know is that you have to put pressure on your agents and don’t stay relaxed.

Remember that you are not the only brand they are working for – as they have a lot of Dropshipper they are working for.

Some have more private labeled goods that are more than yours and they have been in the business for a while.

So, you have to always call them and ask for more updates from them – so that your goods can be delivered and your business can keep scaling up.

 

Conclusion

Private label Dropshipping is a nice business but you have to give it time for it to survive.

Forget all the shiny object syndrome and fake proofs that are flowing on the internet this day.

So, forget all the proofs that are real because those showing those proofs have been in the business for years.

So, if you know this is what you truly desire to do – to live a financially free life.

Then you have to devote your time and give it your best mindset.

Also, make sure that you are using both FREE & PAID methods of getting visitors to your website.

Don’t just rely on paid ads or rely only on organic ads. So, make the two work together and succeed.
