1. Sell The Right Products!

The first tip may sound obvious to you but it isn’t that simple… Yes, you need the right products to sell in order to make sales, so if it’s Summer time then you should try and focus on Summer related products.

But the problem with this really obvious tip is that most beginners think it is enough to simply go to Aliexpress, type “summer” in the search bar, and then just choose the shiniest product from the list they get and get on selling it.

There are definitely some cool looking products that feel like they have a good chance to sell, but what else do you know about these products besides the total number of sales Aliexpress displays for you?

And this is exactly the issue… When choosing a product to sell, you need data to make a decision whether it’s the right product for you to sell right now.

Is the product you’re about to choose is trending on Facebook or TikTok? How did it perform the last time a Dropshipper sold it online and paid ads to promote it on Facebook or TikTok? What type and what kind of ad is the best for this product in order to make actual sales and not just get “likes & shares”? Etc.

If you don’t have the data I just specified, then your product choice is based on pure luck and that’s a recipe for a disaster – AKA, wasting your money on ads without getting any profit back.

“So Daniel, how do we get the relevant data to help us choose the right products to sell?”

The answer is: By using Ecomhunt where you not only get the relevant data on each product, but you also get winning products that are actually proven to sell!

This means that someone else is already making sales and all you have to do is to join in the party by getting your chunk from the sales that are already happening.

And with the additional data that you get like which ad is working the best for this product and the targeting suggestions, you’ll have everything you need to run a successful campaign that brings you sales and profit.

This method is your best chance to find success with Dropshipping as it eliminates the “what should I do to make this sell” factor. You see exactly what other sellers are doing and from there choose a similar way to sell the same product as well.

2. Activate Those Summer Vibes

Freshen it up a bit and get your customers into the right vibe when they visit your online store. You can use whatever app that does that from the Shopify app store and immediately get a fresh, new and cool look.

These small changes help you get more sales by changing the mood of your customers, and this is a fact. Just think about it… How much less would businesses out there earn if they didn’t bother decorate during Christmas and get people into the festivity vibes?

The answer is probably a lot! Now, the same also applies to other holidays and the when the Seasons are changing. You activate a few Summer effects on your store and combine it with some sweet Summer deal, and in return get many more sales than if you just left everything as it was.

3. Find A Niche Product And Expand

Sometimes the best thing to do to find winning products to sell during the Summer is to stop and think about what people do during this Season. And by getting into their heads, you may first find a niche and only then choose a relevant product to sell in it.

Instead of just selling random Summer products (even if they’re great and proven to sell), you open up to a whole new niche where, if done right, customers will be coming back to buy more from you.

For example: Instead of importing 3 random products to your general store and selling them, you can instead open a niche store and fill it up with that niche specific relevant products.

For this example I chose the Travel niche which is something A LOT of people are going to do this Summer. So all I have to do now is go to Ecomhunt and search there for Travel related products.

This way I get the best possible Travel products to sell this Summer and I can use other products as upsells or to remarket them to my already existing customers and get even more profit.

And on top of that, your pixel on Facebook or TikTok will be much more powerful as it knows exactly what your target audience is. And that is priceless as it eventually gets you more sales for a much lower price.

4. Discounts, Free Gifts & Upsells

People LOVE discounts, special gifts, and if you combine a small gift in that package as well then the sale is as good as done! The problem is that new sellers are just clueless on how to run these deals correctly and they are instead doing all the possible mistakes…

So before launching ads to a product on your store, here are a few tips to make the discount actually work and bring you sales:

  1. Big discounts still work – Don’t be afraid to show some 50% OFF or even more discounts on some of the products you’re selling. It still works, it still looks great, and no one will think it is “scammy” as long as the product feels like something high quality. A lot of new Dropshippers are afraid of that and instead show a small 10% or 20% discount which are not at all tempting. So don’t be afraid to show some big discounts on the best selling products on your store.
  2. Show the actual amount your customers are saving – It is always recommended to show the actual amount your customers are about to save when ordering. It’s not your customers job to calculate how much 70% discount is from the original price… Show them exactly how much they save by getting the product right now!
  3. Don’t be cheap with quantity discounts – Give your customers a nice discount if they order more than 1 unit. A 5% discount isn’t that tempting so make sure to start with at least a 10% discount on 2 pieces and jump by 5% for each additional piece that your customers take. On top of that, you can always throw in a nice FREE SHIPPING discount if they buy 2 or more and that can work wonderfully.
  4. Use a post-purchase upsell instead of a recommending a product in the description or cart page – It’s best to keep the focus of your customers on a single item and show additional product once the checkout process is already over. Close the deal first and only then offer additional products that can be purchased with a single click.

And for the Grand Finale:

Give a free gift, whatever it is that you can give for free that won’t hurt your profit too much, and your customers will LOVE you for this! A keychain, a cute little plastic ring, or even a dog’s chewing toy.

It doesn’t really matter as long as the product is received well and it can be used by the customers. This will help increase your conversion rate as your customers see that there’s a free gift included in the package…

And it may bring some of them back to buy more from you because they feel you actually give a damn about your customers.

To Sum It Up

You read till this point so here’s a quick bonus to help you get even more sales without wasting too much money:

Make sure to run retargeting ads as soon as you have enough audience to actually retargeting with Facebook ads or TikTok ads, and use some kind of abandonment protector to bring back customers that almost made a purchase.

For the retargeting ads to work well and to actually bring you back some of the lost sales, all you need is to create a new ad which will call some of your customers and ask them to complete their purchase.

It can be a simple request without any incentive or it can be one that offers an additional discount. Either way, it is not going to cost you a lot because these customers are already warmed up.

They know about the product you’re selling, they already showed some interest, so it’s your job to use that interest in your favor and try to convince them to buy from you.

As for the abandonment protector, this one is even simpler – Set up 2 to 3 abandonment emails for the customers who left the checkout without completing their purchase.

You can do that on your email marketing service provider or by installing an app from the Shopify App Store. Once the setup is completed and you have automatic emails ready to be sent to customers who abandoned their checkout, then from here it’s free money.
