One of my recent posts covered some disadvantages of the most popular fee based dropshipper lists available on the internet.
So, it is logical to check the other side: what are their advantages and why they are pushed on this website (besides the fact that I am affiliated with most of these dropshippers’ lists).
In my opinion these lists are a must for new online entrepreneurs who would like to run some sort of e-commerce outlet based on dropship business model:
- one gets more than just dropshipper lists: free training incl. videos, support forum, e-books, in-built market research tool.
- one gets invaluable experience (how to deal with merchants, with customers, where to promote products, WHAT products to sell, how to deal with returns – the list goes on and on)
- one gets e-commerce store, platform to run your online business
- one builds reputation and customer database. It is much easier to run business on your own with a regular customer database than to start it off the ground
- one gets money back guarantee: most dropshipper lists offer money back guarantee within some reasonable time, so you are not likely to waste your money
If you think that you pay for nothing when you buy some dropshipper list you are wrong. You get much more than just that verified dropshipper list. In fact you get a business solution that makes your work easier.
Once you feel trained and experienced enough you can start making your baby steps setting direct relations with merchants/ manufacturers (including overseas companies) increasing your profit margins in this way.
But those who are new to online business – they should, I would put it, MUST buy at least one dropshipper list. It is naïve to believe that once you have a nice online store or competitively priced products you are sure to succeed online – nowadays online business is hardly different from online – lots of competition and low profit margins.
