What do we mean by niche products?

So…what niche products are, exactly?

Let’s start with the basics. 

When you’re choosing what to sell in your dropshipping store, you have 2 broad options. 

You can sell everything at once: in this case, you’ll have a so-called general store. For many reasons, it can be very challenging for you to run and promote this ecommerce business.

This is why entrepreneurs are more willing to make niche stores. All of the products in these stores are related to some specific idea (a hobby, an activity, a purpose, etc.) It gives the business owner lots of advantages:

  • Lower competition levels
  • Higher buyers’ engagement
  • Well-targeted marketing strategy

Surely, it results in a stronger brand and higher profits!

So, niche products are the items that fall into one narrow category and have something in common. They are demanded by a specific buyers’ audience, and it gives you the opportunity to target your marketing messages precisely.

Ready to look at the ideas we’ve prepared for you?

So, it’s a great idea to run a dropshipping store dedicated to helpful, entertaining, and just fun gadgets that help us cope with basic everyday tasks easily and efficiently. 

And if you want to make this business really successful, here are 2 ideas you need to keep in mind:

It means that you need to monitor the industry closely, and make prompt updates into your online store offer.

  • Tech products can be a bit sophisticated

Do your buyers know what these products are and how to use them right? Will you need to educate your target market?

Most likely, your store visitors will want to learn more about these products before placing their orders. It means that you need to be aware about these products’ features very well, and invest your time into providing top quality customer service.

You want your home to be well-planned and conveniently adapted for all the elements of your daily routine. Whether you’re studying, cooking, or putting away the laundry, you don’t want anything to irritate or distract you. And the good news is, thousands of people all across the globe have the same opinion!

Profitable niche to try in 2020: office supplies

Do you have a first-hand experience of working 9 to 5? Well, even if you don’t, you can easily imagine what it looks and feels like 🙂 

Handy and attractive stationery supplies are a must-have for any office worker. Spending hours at their desks, these employees want to enjoy a smooth and well-organized working process – and, at the same time, make good use of something that reflects their individuality.

‘Stay safe’ is something that we tell our loved ones every now and then – and we mean it. 

Personal safety is no joke, especially when it comes to potentially dangerous activities like travelling abroad alone, walking home late at night, or even crossing a busy road. 

Help your buyers feel safe and confident – and they will be forever grateful!

Olya, you are amazing.

Olagbemide taiwo February 2, 2019 11:09:34

Your content always inspired me. Good job done keep the great work up.

I want to start my own drop shipping store very soon and I will like to use facebook as a tool to promote it.
My question now are

1. Do I need to create another facebook account or to connect it to my existing facebook page.
2. Am from Nigeria due to our reputation online under the team section should I indicate my bio as the CEO of the store .

Please any useful tip I will be grateful
Thanks

    saggat December 5, 2019 2:40:45

    create a new facebook page very important
    you do not need to indicate your bio on your page since you are dropshipping.
    use banners as your facebook page identity.
    stop procrastination! just do it and ask questions later.

This is great. I am inspired to sell reusable eco friendly products. I tried to run an ad about a reusable item that is eco friendly and good for the environment but my ad is not approved by Facebook for the reason that my page is not authorised to run ads related to politics or an issue of national importance, “environment” being the issue of national importance here. I have been advised by Facebook to authorise my page but to do that, I have to be USA citizen residing in USA, which I am not. So how do I go about this? Greatly appreciate your advise on this.

    Olga L. April 5, 2019 9:22:19

    Thank you for your feedback!

    Try writing directly to the Facebook support, and explain them your situation. Generally, they are quite helpful, and can advise you a way out.

    Also, try creating new types of ads that don’t mention the words “environment” or “eco-friendly” – try “green”, “nature-friendly” or “sustainable” instead.

Ann May 7, 2019 8:48:21

Fantastic news from Olga, you make things easier for us. I will join AliDropship business very soon.

Julius Mpundu May 15, 2019 17:07:47

I have been trying to learn and do business on my own but the problem which I am facing is shipping,I have account with AliExpress which I am a Gold member now, therefore if you buy something it will take almost a two month to reach your through post and to some sellers if you follow up some on your parcel there response is very bad.so how can I do my drop ship business with my situation?

Wilson Chidi August 10, 2019 9:07:50

Olga thanks for the content, I want to join AliDropship business but I want to know if I can run the business from Nigeria in West Africa because I’m based in Nigeria. Is it possible to run AliDropship from here? Thanks as I wait for your response

Jassica shaan October 15, 2019 7:18:34

Your research is awesome and very helpful for all newbies. Can you please do same research for office furniture. Because i have a office and home furniture eCommerce store woodtechmobel.com . I want shift it on drop shipping. Thanks

    Olga L. October 15, 2019 9:05:47

    Hi, thank you for your feedback!

    The issue with furniture is that it’s a large and heavy product type that is not really good for international shipping.
    Instead, you might choose the niche of office stationery and supplies. These items are lightweight, easy to ship, catchy, and closely related to your current business.

Justin October 21, 2019 12:35:55

Very rich article here, hoping to join this business soon
