[METHOD] New Way to Create and Promote Dropship Business


Business Idea: Dropshipping

Profit: $2,000 - $30,000 per month


Want to earn 6-7 figures a year? Why not try dropshipping! They are already hundreds and thousands of successful dropship entrepreneurs earning millions a year. And most of these entrepreneurs ordered products from AliExpress and sold it double at their online shop.

Did you know that most of the AliExpress/Alibaba items are sold on Amazon and eBay, and not only those that are delivered from China? AliExpress is the retail arm of Alibaba, the wholesaler. I've been looking at reviews and sales numbers for AliExpress items on eBay and Amazon to give me a superior thought of what sells best in USA and UK.

I've discovered that there is a considerable amount of low-quality items on Aliexpress and that you must be watchful who you purchase from. But I listed down some reliable sellers and items worth selling. A high rate of positive reviews doesn't really mean a lot – it's normal for sellers to give rebates or discounts as an exchange for positive reviews! Looking at the negative remarks, how long a supplier has been in business, and the amount they sell, all makes a difference.


Steps to Make a Dropship Site

1. Register with these Programs

Admitad.com - register for Aliexpress account. You can track your earnings here easily.

Portals.Aliexpress.com - register directly.

AliPlugin (for Wordpress only) - the plugin cost you $49.99.

Oberlo (for Shopify only) - the plugin has a free plan. Register with Shopify and activate the plugin. Try Shopify for Free.

Godaddy/Namecheap - for your domain name. If you just want to try or experiment on domain names, visit 1&1 $0.99 Domains.

BlueHost or iPage - if you plan to use WordPress rather than Shopify.

2. WordPress with AliExpress AliPlugin / Shopify with Oberlo


AliPlugin allows you to add thousands of AliExpress products to WordPress website quickly and easily. It lets you search for products in your niche and import in bulk or individually. Try researching for suppliers and products first before importing their products to your site using the plugin. This way you'll find reliable sellers and high-quality products to promote on your website.

Shopify is the easiest and quickest way to sell your products. You can avail for their free trial for 14 days or 30 days, depends on your location. You will receive your own domain name and web hosting on top of the paid plan. They have many free themes to choose from. Once you finish setting up your Shopify site, activate the Oberlo plugin in Shopify's App Store.

3. Site's Content


Now, you have worked on your site's design and installed the plugins. Assume you already have a list of suppliers and their products, what's missing is the content, images and price allocated for each product. You may need to add about 30-50% on top of the original price for profit and expenses. If the price of the chosen product listed on AliExpress is $100(Shipping&Handling included), you'll sell it for $130 or more on your site.

The item description posted in AliExpress is only minimal. Mostly, it's just basic information about sizes, brand, what it's made of, etc. You may want to add your own item description, just 1-2 sentences will suffice. It's important to insert keywords within the sentences for SEO(Search Engine Optimization).

For the images, it fills your post automatically once you run the importing tool in the plugin along with the basic item description of the product.

4. Social Media Marketing


If you aren’t utilizing the power of social media, you are definitely going to miss the boat! Social media is HOT and getting hotter every day as more and more social sites such as Pinterest explode on the virtual scene. The hard part of it is posting your products/articles to these social media sites. There are so many of them that you have to go to the sites one by one and that would be exhausting. The good news is you can automate your social media marketing! No more slaving away for hours on the internet, you just have to sign up for dlvr.it. Make an RSS Feed of your site/shop then integrate it with dlvr.it. Create or log in to your social media accounts before automating your feeds. Once you have a new article or product posted on your site, dlvr.it will share this to your social media accounts. It's that simple. You can only post up to three social media sites for a Free Plan.

Other marketing ways are buying for Instagram shoutouts, video content on Youtube with product link on the description box, Shopify with Pinterest Buyable Pins, Twitter, Google+ and Facebook Pages.

5. Other Ways To Promote Dropship Business

Aside from getting an AliExpress account at Admitad, you can also apply for their Advertiser Plan and promote your products. More affiliates will promote your advertising campaign once they find your products promising. You just have to be creative and your commissions enticing enough. There are many advertising methods out there. The two biggest advertising platform is Google Adwords and Facebook Ads. Limit your budget per day if you are just starting up then scale it up if you have more revenue.
