Yaros, is there anyway we can get more detailed information on these specific niches listed above, as to what it covers, type of products offered, etc.etc.
thanks

    To learn more about Keyword Competition, please read our article about search engine optmization: https://alidropship.com/choosing-a-dropshipping-niche-evaluating-seo-aspect/
    Basically, to evaluate this parameter, you need to use free Keyword Explorer tool https://moz.com/explorer from MOZ. Just enter the keyword in the search field and look at the Difficulty parameter. If the number is too big, the competition is really high, and it will be difficult for you to promote this niche by SEO.

Zia July 16, 2017 16:52:19

Hi, thanks for the great research work. Can you tell what competition overview means. Is it relevant to only SEO or overall competition. I have read the SEO aspects article but couldn’t understand competition overview.

If it’s only specific to SEO related competition. What is the best way to know social media competition ?

    olga.lavrinovich July 17, 2017 4:59:18

    You’re welcome!

    Competition overview is only related to SEO. You take the main keyword you’ve chosen for your webstore, and check its competition. This step helps you understand how many websites already have this specific keyword in their URL. The more websites you can find, the more difficult it will be for you to promote your store through SEO.

    To gain some insight about social media competition, you can also look for accounts that have your keyword in their name. Research them carefully: look at the number of followers/subscribers, and try to understand what kind of a promotional strategy these accounts have. Are the posts designed in a similar unified way? What is the tone of communication? What type of content dominates? This is how you will get general understanding of social media competition, and maybe you will even use some of these tips for your own store.

Hi Olga,

This is awesome thank you very much for this post. After going through this list I am interested in starting a dropshipping business in body art and temporary tattoos, but I am not sure on how to target my audience appropriately. Is there any other article or way that can assist me further specifically in identifying a profitable target market for this niche?

    olga.lavrinovich July 20, 2017 4:13:09

    You are welcome, Dan!

    The great thing about drop shipping is its global reach – therefore, while choosing your target audience, you don’t necessarily have to limit yourself with one specific country or region.

    What matters more are the traits and features of your potential customers. Who are the people that might be interested in temporary tattoos and body arts? What are their interests and hobbies? What kind of lifestyle they are likely to have? Which social networks, blogs and forums they prefer?

    The answers to these questions are valuable because they will help you build a promotional strategy for your future store: create some visual identity, find advertising channels, choose the tone of your communications, etc.

    Obviously, you will have to do some research, maybe check out some market surveys and reports, and take a look at your competitors’ actions. Don’t worry if you can’t instantly define your audience: start with a broader reach, and then gradually narrow down the target segment in the course of your research.

    We will definitely cover this issue in our further articles, so thank you for this question!

    Best of luck!

    Hello,

    You can visit AliExpress and search for baby accessories to get the idea about what kind of items you can offer. Examples are: Anti Lost Reminder, Edge & Corner Guards, Bottle Feeding. Car seats, Grooming & Healthcare Kits, etc.

Hi,
Keywords is the problem for me. Say you get your list of 30 ish keywords. Then you start to build your site. How do you add those keywords?
By using 30 different categories of your keywords maybe?
