You find lots of products to dropship in any of the lists:
What about martial arts online dropship retail store?
I think it should be great fun to thousands of online entrepreneurs who have martial arts as their life hobby. Why not to combine that with business and make your living with that? Establish a website similar to this (or simply buy this one):
• URL: MartialArts3000.com
• Established: 1 Jan 2007
• Uniques/Month: 3,512
• Page views/month: 8,120
• Monthly Revenue: $500
• PageRank: 3
• Listed: 1 Aug 2007
• Buy it now: $12,500
The site for sale is www.MartialArts3000.com. It is a gorgeous niche e-commerce site that has an eye-catching online store running on the Yahoo Store platform and a growing blog.
The online store currently has over 150 items from 3 suppliers. The potential for the store is unlimited for the right buyer, as it is simple to add additional items through the Yahoo Store Platform. I can introduce you to 6 new martial arts wholesalers than have over 40,000 additional items. All of the current products are drop-shipped from my vendors, so you never touch a single thing. You can use your own merchant account, or set one up through Yahoo, plus you can also take credit cards through Paypal. It is set up for all 3!
The store opened just 6 months ago in January 2007. In that time we have set up all the pages, written UNIQUE descriptions for all the items, and begun the SEO.
You get ownership to our library of niche articles. We have had over 120 keyword-rich articles privately written to promote the various product offerings in the store. These articles have been syndicated via EzineArticles, GoArticles and Isnare, providing anchor text rich links back to the various product pages.
This library of articles can be used as blog content, unique article pages in the store itself, and can be spun and syndicated for even more backlinks.
The SEO has begun to generate sales from the traffic. In July 2007 the site had 8121 page views, 3512 visitors, and $354.40 in revenue on 7 sales. In addition the site has Adsense profits of $11.26.
The blog is already receiving 50-100 page views a day after just a month of being open.
According to Marketleap.com the store at MartialArts3000.com has over 650 yahoo backlinks, a Google PageRank of 3, and has 173 pages indexed in Google.
In July, the top 10 traffic referrers were:
google (organic) 1615
yahoo (organic) 465
msn (organic) 199
live (organic) 101
aol (organic) 28
Last month Google referred traffic from over 1300 unique phrase searches!
The store has customer service galore. We have a ticketing system with Kayako for tracking inquiries. We use an 800 customer service line through RingCentral. This allows us to forward the phones anywhere in the world to virtual assistants to help clients. And we have online chat support with ProvideSupport. You can keep and/or modify any of these services as you need.
To really tap the potential of this online store, I would suggest adding a few hundred martial arts products from a few dropship vendors. Since Google and Yahoo robots visit the site daily, your new products would appear in the search engines very quickly. The SEO is working well, we are seeing the store pages climb the index steadily. The Yahoo Store platform is very robust, and its easy to find freelancers on Elance familiar with it that work very inexpensively. This site is designed to be outsourced easily.
Sales revenue in the store will climb as new products are added and as the backlinks mature. The blog has a lot of potential to sell text links on, cross promote new products, and for affiliate sales.
The sales process can be tested and improved to boost conversions. The MMA clothing business is exploding, and the store ranks on the first page of Google for “mma clothing”!
I’ll work with you to make all of the transfers and account movement as smooth and as quick as possible.
