How to Start Dropshipping From Scratch

this is probably gonna be the most,valuable in-depth drop shipping video,that i've ever posted on this channel,we're gonna go through step by step as,to how you can start a drop shipping,business today,i'm really excited about this video at,this point i've made quite a variety of,different drop shipping videos in which,i've tried new marketing methods started,new stores and challenges but i don't,think i've ever actually sat down and,clearly explained how someone can start,their own dropshipping business from,scratch i've made videos where i started,them up and gone through the whole,process but in this video i'm gonna,explain step by step how you can do the,same even throw in some case studies i,helped a friend set up the kind of,business we're talking about here just,last week and they were able to get,sales when they launched so everything,in this video everything i'm talking,about is up to date and should work very,similarly for the foreseeable future,let's not waste any more time and jump,straight into what aliexpress shopify,dropshipping is and clear up any,misconceptions people may have what is,drop shipping,aliexpress shopify dropshipping is a,business in which you find a product on,a chinese website called aliexpress,there's other websites you can turn to,but aliexpress is the biggest and most,popular one for example you find this,face cleaning a pimple removing vacuum a,really old winning product but just as,an example it costs 12.39 on aliexpress,once you found your product you would,then head over to shopify which is a,platform that allows you to create an,ecommerce website and accept payments,and orders you create a website on,shopify in which you sell this face,vacuum for a higher price let's say you,sell it for 34.99 now we'll get into,more details later but you would then,advertise your website on social media,and when someone orders this product,from your website they gave you the,34.99,as well as their shipping information,you take that and head over to,aliexpress where you proceed to order,this product directly to your customers,address for,12.39 and just like that your customer,paid you 34.99 so after paying for the,product you're left with,22.60 profit for basically being the,middleman then marketing the product,once you found out that this product is,actually selling you would start paying,more money for ads and scale this,operation up i've had multiple products,that i was able to scale into the,hundreds of thousands and even into the,seven figure range so don't worry you're,not doing all this for 20 it's a,scalable business so that's just the,overall summary this is an easy concept,that's a lot more difficult than,practice so before you go out there,you're gonna need to know a few more,things to do this successfully there's,four pillars to successful drop spring,business so we'll break this down into,four sections pillar one is your product,pillar two is your website three you,have your advertisement and for your,marketing so let's start with the first,pillar your product pillar one,product,arguably one of the most important parts,if your product sucks and no one would,ever impulsively buy it from an online,store you won't get very far with drop,shipping you're usually selling stuff on,social media so you have to have a,product with some sort of wow factor,that people could see think hey that's,really cool and buy it right there on,the spot it also helps to start with,products that solve some sort of problem,that poor vacuum helped clean people's,faces and remove blackheads when people,first started dropshipping it no one had,really seen it before so it had a wow,factor to it people would see it on,their instagram feed they'd stop,scrolling and would want to check it out,this pet hair roller pet owners would,see this ad where remove pet hair in one,swipe boom a little wow factor and it,solved the real problem now your product,doesn't absolutely have to solve a,problem but my best products and ones,that have been the easiest to sell,usually would solve a problem for people,kind of help with an insecurity or make,their life easier you can sell products,that don't solve a clear problem if the,product is very novel and has a huge wow,factor or if it's something people have,a passion for these ceiling stress balls,as an example they just seem kind of fun,and unlike anything people have really,seen before this penguin board game most,people have never seen it before so when,they see it pop up they might be a,little intrigued because it's so novel,this dog toothbrush solves a problem and,people are passionate about their pets,so they're willing to drop money on them,this baby cushion chair helps newborn,babies sit down and play with their toys,without falling over and hurting,themselves parents are usually hopefully,pretty passionate about babies and,wouldn't want them falling boom so and,i'm not saying you should sell any of,these products right now but all these,products at one point or another have,been hot selling products and it should,give you a better idea of what really,works if you haven't had any success,with drop shipping and are trying it for,the first time i would recommend not,reinventing the wheel on finding a brand,new untapped revolutionary product,instead i would hop on a product that is,currently selling well you can search,for ads on facebook and instagram find,current ones that are performing well,and see the product they're selling and,pay attention to the products you get,ads for there's websites that compile,lists of potential winning products you,can look at aliexpress products with a,lot of orders and cross-reference to see,if any drop shipping stores are selling,and just in general do a lot of research,and i'm going to leave this section off,by saying you want to find a product,that either you yourself the person who,just smashed the like button can see,yourself being interested in or at least,know someone in your life who you can,see buying the product if you can't,think of anyone and can't imagine anyone,in your life that would want to buy it,well,congratulations you played yourself,pillar 2,website,not going to spend too long in this part,you basically have to create a store,that doesn't look like a five-year-old,just scribbled crayons all over their,screen shopify's templates that you can,use to create a nice simple clean easy,to use website you don't need anything,too fancy just make sure it looks like a,legitimate online store shopify also,makes it very easy to buy a domain,through them so think of something clean,and simple and you usually want to go,for the dot-com ones as people trust,those domains the most now that's the,design aspect of it but you also have to,choose between making a general store,that sells everything a niche stores,that sells products in a particular,niche or a single product store that,only focuses on one single product right,off the bat i'm not a fan of general,stores i think the conversion rate is a,little low on them it's tough to sell,car products and beauty products on the,same website i just personally wouldn't,recommend it single product stores have,the highest conversion rates they feel,very branded you can make it look very,sleek but it's hard to test products on,them since you have to create a brand,new website every time you want to test,a new product which is very time,consuming can be discouraging and those,new domain costs can add up now niche,stores are what i would probably,recommend to a beginner since you can,make them feel like a brand and have a,really nice fitting design throughout,the entire store while being able to,test new products in the niche very,quickly if you have a baby store you can,name it,munchkin bloom something broad but,fitting to the niche and then you won't,have to create a new website for every,product but instead just add new,products into the store that you want to,test and just build up the product pages,for them and then if you have a product,to really pop off you could take it and,create a one product store around it,really make it branded and get those,really high conversion rates but i will,say some products work incredibly well,with one product stores and there's no,way around that you might have to pop,them into one product store right off,the bat but that's for you to decide,pillar three,advertisement,very important your advertisement is the,first thing people see in regards to,your store it's the thing that gets them,to your store and can make or break your,whole drop shipping business you can't,just screenshot an aliexpress product,pay someone to post it on their,instagram page and expect to make money,a little janky slideshow won't cut it,either so how do you create a good ad,well first off you need footage of your,product when you're first starting out,and are testing a bunch of products it,would be tough to order the product,every time plan an ad hire actors film,footage and edit every single time you,find a new product most beginners will,start off by scouring the internet for,footage of their product then editing it,together just to start testing the,product once they see that it's selling,they then can start paying for content,creators to film themselves using their,product or ship it to yourself and film,your own ad with people you know or,actors you hire keep in mind though the,footage you find online and use for your,ad can be copyrighted so you might get,complaints with that be very careful i'm,not endorsing this i'm just saying,that's what a lot of beginners do if you,decide to go the scouring the internet,for footage route make sure that once,you see that a product is selling well,you switch over to your own ads not only,is this gonna make things way safer but,it's gonna make your store stick out,since all these other stores selling the,same product don't have custom footage,everything they don't have i have,it's called jealousy,one's envy with custom original ads,you'll be able to scale things and,really build something more sustainable,you constantly want to be filming new,ads if you want to keep selling the,product for longer than a month or two,since people will quickly get tired of,seeing your original ad and it's gonna,stop converting last thing on this is,make sure the first couple seconds of,your ad are very attention grabbing,you're fighting for people's attention,here you're fighting for people to stop,scrolling and view your ad and really,you only have the first couple of,seconds of your advertisement to do so,pillar four,marketing,now if you have those last three pillars,on lock this last part should not be too,difficult although it will take some,practice and experience you're gonna be,marketing your product through social,media there's lots of different ways you,can do that so let's go over a few basic,ones as well as maybe some new and,innovative ones first up the one i,started with was instagram pages you can,pay either actual influencers on,instagram or theme pages to post your,product slash ad if you have a beauty,product you can pay some beauty theme,pages to post your ad if you have a,fitness product there's plenty of,fitness pages a baby product there's,baby and parent pages the big thing with,this is to make sure you're using pages,that have really good engagement and,that all of their followers are not dead,and i mean that figuratively not,literally then from there i personally,went to facebook ads which is where you,kind of want to eventually end up this,is where the big bucks are made the,major leagues and you can really scale,things but it's a little more complex,than just paying an instagram page,there's also a lot of limitations with,what kind of products you can actually,sell through facebook ads as they are,incredibly strict with approving your ad,copy and what you can even sell i,absolutely don't want to discourage,anyone from going straight to facebook,ads it's very possible to succeed with,them right off the gate but again that's,something you gotta decide for yourself,so those are the two main ones i've,mainly used however there's also google,ads snapchat ads pinterest and now even,tick tock i've seen people post videos,of them using their product on tick tock,and just have that ad it doesn't really,look like an ad but it really is go,completely viral organically getting,them millions of free views on tick tock,that otherwise would cost tens of,thousands of dollars the latest example,i've seen are those ceiling balls that,keep on going viral on tick tock and one,of the stores that sells them is,apparently sold out so it definitely,works you can even pay pages or,influencers on tick tock to promote your,product the way you do on instagram i'm,telling you if you get creative with,your marketing there's so many different,things you can do but those are the kind,of main routes you can take in,conclusion,those are the main four pillars,summarized hopefully this gives you a,good idea of how you can start drop,shipping you're probably going to want,to do more research into all these,little things separately this is kind of,just the overview but there's plenty of,videos online regarding specific topics,and i even have a course linked below,where i break down everything that i do,to start my stores in detail,so drop shipping is not dead people are,still buying stuff online sure,eventually dropshipping from aliexpress,might get a little outdated but all,these principles can be applied to an,in-house brand or even to dropship from,a different source so drop shipping as a,whole is not really going anywhere but,that's shopify aliexpress dropshipping,for you this is how i started i know,people having success with it for their,first time right now personally and from,getting tons of dms on instagram you,just really have to have some patience,and keep testing things until something,pops off you can't expect to make,millions on your very first go really,hope that you guys enjoyed this video,and found it helpful and i hope that you,have an amazing rest of your day peace,morgan freeman voiceovers aren't cheap,please smash the like button
