I am amazed at the variety of products people dropship online: basket dropshippers, auto accessory dropshippers, playstation dropshippers, Halloween costumes dropshippers, men apparel dropshippers, sunglasses dropshippers, and etc…
It takes market knowledge to research this sort of goods and find a way to make money selling them online.
I admit it is not the best time (due to the financial crisis) to invest lots of money into dropship ventures, but one can easily start a drophip project on a shoestring – just as a part time hobby that will cost you 50-100 dollars monthly or probably less. We all hope that the bad times will pass soon and it is a good idea to meet better times with established projects.
Today we introduce a new case study – a dropship site selling pool products with $10,000+ monthly revenue. See those elements that make a successful dropship project – products in demand, a reliable dropshipper, a pro design, proper promotion to get traffic and reach the targeted audience…

Revenue is a mix from organic and PPC. PPC campaigns were small and never more than $5k/month. This is another HUGE area for growth. With our clients small budget, they were barely even hitting the tip of the market … you could spend hundreds of thousands per month on PPC in this industry! More PPC details available upon request.
Why Were Selling:
We build and managed this site for a client who is no longer interested in the site due to lack of time and many other business ventures. We’ve spent a LOT of time building and maintaining the site and would like to see it go into good hands.
