What exactly is “Keyword competition”. I could not find explanation about it in the article: https://alidropship.com/how-to-find-a-niche-market-for-dropshipping-store/

olga.lavrinovich 4 years ago

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.

Edgar 4 years ago

it relates to the competition you face while carrying out your adwords campaigns. That means many sellers of the same are advertising using adwords.

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 4 years ago

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 4 years ago

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, What do you mean by baby accessories? Please give an example or two, i’m in the baby niche.

yaros 4 years ago

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.

Dave 4 years ago

I would not go and sell things that babies put in their mouths, you don’t wanna be responsible for any mishaps and we all know that chinese products are not of the best quality

Ricardo 4 years ago

Hi There!
I was planning to start a store related to comic books, so Marvel would be a big one for me. However, I was advised not to do it for legal reasons….
The thing is that I would need a license to sell these products and could be fined or even sued.
Do you have any information on that?

Thanks again for the article!

Very useful article. Hope you guys update for 2018. I’m one of those who wanted to understand the context of the star ratings for each category specified. I saw the article link in the comments that helped a lot. I’m thinking you probably need to update this article and ADD a link to that methodology article just to make things easier.

Renata Moraes 4 years ago

Hi Olga, how are you?
This list was organized by popularity order, that is, from the most popular to the least popular, or is it a random list?
Thanks

Hi Olga.

Thanks for the great post.

I just want to ask, if I plan to promote products using google shopping ads, what criteria should I look and focus?

Trends or Keyword analysis or Competition overview or Keyword competition or SEO competition with huge retailers?

Thanks and waiting to your response.

I’m interested in the fan merch niche, but there’s no problem to sell trademark products found in Aliexpress, if I have no license for it? Thank you.

MarkCM 3 years ago

You should get rid of the whole Fan Merch section except for Manga/Animi .. too many copyright problems.

Jay 3 years ago

Agree with others on the Fan Merch category – it is well protected by trademark/copyright laws in the U.S. Be careful!

Hi Olga,
Is it suitable to place more than one niche of the same category in one store? say like phone accessories and drone accessories in the same store.

Thanks

Olga L. 2 years ago

Hi, thank you for your question!

Yes, it’s possible, but you will need to think very carefully about the way you will promote your store, and the audience you will target.
