Lingerie has been a favorite for many hundreds of years and it seems highly unlikely that this trend will change any time soon. The plus size market ramps the popularity of the niche up considerably and if you are looking for a lucrative home business in ecommerce, you will be picking a proven winner if you choose this one.</p> <p>There are a variety of products in the plus size lingerie niche that would be great performers for you. Here are a few examples of the types of plus size lingerie you might want to dropship:<br><br></p> <ul> <li>Bras</li> <li>Panties</li> <li>Nightgowns</li> <li>Girdles</li> <li>Corsets</li> <li>Bustiers</li> <li>Robes</li> <li>Stockings</li> <li>And More</li> </ul> <p><br>Of course, here is one of the really good things about dropshipping: Since you don’t have to pay for any of the products you sell up front, you can choose to narrow your focus and only sell one or a couple of plus size lingerie items or shoot the moon and sell all of them. With the dropship business model, you just decide which products you want to sell and only pay of reach one as it is sold and you have collected the payment for it from your customer.<br><br>Here are 3 tips to help you make fantastic profits when you dropship plus size lingerie:<br><br>I. Choose your wholesale product source wisely. Your success as a dropshipper will depend almost entirely on who you select as your product supplier. Be sure it is a reputable business with high quality products. The last thing you want to do is send someone shoddy, poorly made plus size lingerie. If you are dropshipping on eBay or Amazon, bad feedback from buyers will sink your dropshipping ship in nothing flat. Avoid this by doing business with a dropship source that carries only high quality products. You should also make sure that your wholesale products source ships promptly with discreet, secure packaging and that you are provided with a tracking number to furnish the customer.&nbsp; Another very important point is that your wholesale product source gives you real wholesale prices; otherwise you will not have enough of a margin for profit.<br><br>II. Order one product of each type of plus size lingerie you intend to dropship. First of all, you can check the quality this way, but equally important is that you can take your own photos for your eBay or Amazon listings, your own website or whatever online venue you have chosen for your home business platform. In most cases, the product images on the wholesale product supplier website will be bare bones at best. You will do much better to invest a few bucks in at least a three quarter mannequin to display each piece of plus size lingerie to its best advantage. Make it romantic with a nice background, candles, flowers…you get the idea. This will give you a big edge over your competitors who are using the stock images! This may sound like a lot of trouble, but it really isn’t and could net you quite a bit more in profits over time. You can sell the items you bought for photos after you are through with them. <br><br>III. You can copy and paste the plus size lingerie products directly from your wholesale product source’s website but again---these are likely to be plain vanilla, no frill descriptions that won’t be as effective in selling your items as ones you write yourself. (or have written if writing isn’t your forte.) You should romance your descriptions the same as the photos of your products. Understand that selling lingerie is different than selling dog beds or camping tents. Lingerie is a romantic sort of thing and even such basic necessities as bras and panties can be made to sound pretty and feminine instead of strictly utilitarian. Your original descriptions, written with good SEO for Google and the eBay Cassini search engine, will bring you more sales than your competition selling the exact items.<br><br>Use these 3 tips to dropship plus size lingerie for plus size profits!</p><p>&nbsp;</p><p>Start your own online <a href="http://www.dropshipaccess.com" mce_href="http://www.dropshipaccess.com">dropship</a> business today!<br></p> <img src="http://track.hubspot.com/__ptq.gif?a=41336&k=14&bu=http://blog.dropshipaccess.com/&r=http://blog.dropshipaccess.com/bid/101363/3-Tips-to-Dropship-Plus-Size-Lingerie-for-Plus-Size-Profits&bvt=rss">Amanda BrookeFri, 04 Oct 2013 15:02:00 GMTf1397696-738c-4295-afcd-943feb885714:101363http://blog.dropshipaccess.com/bid/101342/How-to-Boost-Dropship-Holiday-Sales-with-Email-Marketing#Comments0How to Boost Dropship Holiday Sales with Email Marketinghttp://blog.dropshipaccess.com/bid/101342/How-to-Boost-Dropship-Holiday-Sales-with-Email-Marketing<br><img src="http://blog.dropshipaccess.com/Portals/41336/images/email5-resized-600.JPG" alt="dropship email marketing" class="alignLeft" style="float: left;" border="0">If you want to rock those ecommerce <a href="http://www.dropshipaccess.com/" title="dropship" target="_blank"><strong>dropship</strong></a> sales during the upcoming holiday season, it might pay you to take a close look at how to use email marketing effectively.<br><br>Email marketing is extremely effective provided it is done right. In fact, it is one of the most effective marketing methods available to day for ecommerce and has a great ROI (Return On Investment) to boot.<br><br>The winter holidays are prime online shopping times for millions of people all around the world. You want in on the action, right? Sure you do! Read on to find out how to use email marketing to effectively increase your dropship home business sales this holiday season.<br><br>Here are a few tips and tricks that should help you optimize your email marketing for the holidays:<br><br> <ul> <li>Make sure you have especially good offers and promotions going on in your dropship business during two of the biggest shopping days of the year---Black Friday and Cyber Monday. There will be a lot of consumers keeping an eye out for great deals and bargains, so you want to have something to offer them.</li> </ul> <ul> <li>Don’t be afraid to think outside the box when it comes to your marketing emails. You want a subject line that will jump out there and attract a viewer’s attention before they automatically hit the delete button and move on to the next email. Make it humorous, or outlandishly extravagant or perhaps a particularly lucrative offer….it doesn’t matter so much how you go about it or exactly what you say, the main idea is to get your marketing email opened and read.</li> </ul> <br> <ul> <li>Be sure to keep the main message of your holiday marketing emails “above the fold” which simply means in the top half of the message. It is much more likely to be read there in its entirety, which in turn will get readers to continue reading the whole message.</li> </ul> <ul> <li>Always have links to your social media sites such as Facebook and Twitter. Encourage people to like and share so that you can extend your audience. The holidays are a perfect time to have contests and promotions on Facebook, especially. For example, you might offer free shipping to everyone who likes your page. Don’t panic---you won’t be losing money in for factor the shipping cost into the cost of your dropship products. Internet research has shown that shoppers are more likely to buy an item---even at a slightly higher price than a competitor‘s---if it comes with free shipping.</li> </ul> <br> <ul> <li>Take some time to clean up your subscription list. Verify email addresses, update new change of email addresses, thin out subscribers who haven’t opened any of your emails in a long time. There is a chance they might open yours during the holiday shopping season but it’s unlikely if they haven’t opened any in a couple of years or so.</li> </ul> <br> <ul> <li>This is a prime time to beef up your email marketing subscription list. Actively solicit those email addys! Offer some sort of incentive such as a percentage or dollar off amount on a purchase, for instance.</li> </ul> <br>Use these tips to boost dropship holiday sales with email marketing!<br><p>&nbsp;</p><p>Start your own online <a href="http://www.dropshipaccess.com" mce_href="http://www.dropshipaccess.com">dropship</a> business today!<br></p> <img src="http://track.hubspot.com/__ptq.gif?a=41336&k=14&bu=http://blog.dropshipaccess.com/&r=http://blog.dropshipaccess.com/bid/101342/How-to-Boost-Dropship-Holiday-Sales-with-Email-Marketing&bvt=rss">Amanda BrookeThu, 03 Oct 2013 19:33:00 GMTf1397696-738c-4295-afcd-943feb885714:101342http://blog.dropshipaccess.com/bid/101319/Dropship-GunVault-Products-for-Holiday-Ecommerce-Home-Business-Sales#Comments0Dropship GunVault Products for Holiday Ecommerce Home Business Saleshttp://blog.dropshipaccess.com/bid/101319/Dropship-GunVault-Products-for-Holiday-Ecommerce-Home-Business-Sales<br><p>Anyone in the market for a profitable ecommerce niche for the upcoming holiday season might do well to consider this idea: <a href="http://www.dropshipaccess.com/" title="Dropship" target="_blank"><strong>Dropship</strong></a> GunVault products!<br><br>Could there be a better time to dropship anything connected with guns and firearms of any type/ The mass nationwide panic ensuing from a fear that we will lose our constitutional right to bear arms has caused millions of people to stampede to the nearest gun store and stock up on guns, ammunition an anything in the entire firearm niche.<br><br>Do you have a niggling doubt that maybe it is wrong to profit from this current craze? <br><br>Why would it be?

Plus, a lot of retirees find that having so much time on their hands after a lifetime spent being productive is a little too much like stagnating to suit them.</p> <p><img src="http://blog.dropshipaccess.com/Portals/41336/images/senior-resized-600.JPG" alt="dropshipping for retirees" class="alignRight" style="float: right;" border="0"><br>If you are a retiree who is contemplating starting a home business, ecommerce is definitely the way to go and dropshipping takes ecommerce to a whole new level of easy start up and maintenance!<br><br>Whatever your reasons for thinking about getting started with a home business, be it boredom or financial necessity, you will find much to recommend a dropship business. <br><br>Let’s look at some of the things that make an ecommerce home dropshipping business so attractive to retirees:<br><br></p> <ul> <li>Low start up cost---If you were starting a brick and mortar traditional business, you would need big bucks to get it off the ground. You would have to rent, buy or lease a suitable building, pay utilities and all sorts of insurance, hire a cleaning crew or do the cleaning yourself, etc. etc. It is a daunting prospect and especially in view of the fact that the retail economy---though slowly recovering---is far from booming. E-tail, on the other hand, or online sales, is healthy and getting bigger all the time.</li> </ul> <br> <ul> <li>No need to buy inventory up front---With a traditional commerce business, you would need to buy inventory in order to have something to sell. As you can imagine, this would not be cheap. But with a home dropshipping business, you don’t have to buy any inventory to get started. In fact, you only pay for each product as it is sold and your customer has paid you for it. In essence, you are selling products you don’t have in your possession. If this sounds confusing, read on and all will become clear.</li> </ul> <br> <ul> <li>No hassle or expense of packaging and shipping---Because you don’t have the products you sell in your physical possession, your wholesale dropship product source takes care of all the packing and shipping. Yes! All of it. This leaves you free to do the thing that will make you money---sell, sell, sell! You simply find a reputable wholesale product source, select the items you want to dropship, list them on your website or a venue like eBay or Amazon and you're in business!</li> </ul> <br> <ul> <li>Set your own hours---When you work from home as your own boss with a dropshipping business, you set your own schedule. Want to take off on a pretty afternoon and play a few holes of golf or go fishing or shopping or whatever strikes your fancy? Go! You can make up the time if you need to on a rainy day when you would just as soon stay home.</li> </ul> <br> <ul> <li>And speaking of staying home---When you work from home, you never have to worry about shoveling your car out of several feet of snow to drive to work, or get out in pouring down rain and storms, or fight the crowded commuter system, either. You get to earn the money you need right from the privacy, comfort and security of your own nest. How great is that?</li> </ul> <br>There are many reasons why dropshipping is a great home business for retirees, so get started today---you’ll love it!<br><br><br><br><p>&nbsp;</p><p>Start your own online <a href="http://www.dropshipaccess.com" mce_href="http://www.dropshipaccess.com">dropship</a> business today!<br></p> <img src="http://track.hubspot.com/__ptq.gif?a=41336&k=14&bu=http://blog.dropshipaccess.com/&r=http://blog.dropshipaccess.com/bid/101317/Dropshipping-A-Great-Home-Business-for-Retirees&bvt=rss">Amanda BrookeWed, 02 Oct 2013 21:42:00 GMTf1397696-738c-4295-afcd-943feb885714:101317http://blog.dropshipaccess.com/bid/101253/Dropship-Video-Games-for-Big-Holiday-Sales-Profits#Comments0Dropship Video Games for Big Holiday Sales & Profits!http://blog.dropshipaccess.com/bid/101253/Dropship-Video-Games-for-Big-Holiday-Sales-Profits<br><p>If you are looking for a great ecommerce niche for the upcoming holidays, here is an idea for you: Dropship video games for big sales and profits!<br><br>If you dropship video games during any time of the year it is a profitable, proven winner of a niche, but this is especially true during the holidays as these products are high on the Holiday Wish List of many people and thus, high on the lists of many who will be buying gifts.</p> <p><img src="http://blog.dropshipaccess.com/Portals/41336/images/gamers-resized-600.JPG" alt="dropship video games" class="alignLeft" style="float: left;" border="0"><br><br>If you are wondering whether or not there is any proof to back up this claim that dropshipping video games is a good idea, check out some of this info from the Entertainment and Software Association:<br><br>“No other sector has experienced the same explosive growth as the computer and video game industry.

For the most part meaning that as things go along, you may discover that certain parts of your initial plan don’t work after all, or at least not as well as you thought they would. At this point, you will need to have a backup plan and move on to Plan B.<br><br>Your business plan might not be written in stone since you must make adjustments as circumstances dictate, but you should adhere to the bare bones of it as much as possible.<br><br>First, sit down and put some thought into exactly what you need from your home dropshipping business. How much money do you want or need to make? How many hours are you willing to work? Where do you want your business to be six months from now? A year from now? Five years from now?<br><br>These are things that need to be carefully considered. Once you arrive at your goals and decide how much money you are aiming to make, then start planning how you will meet those objectives short and long range.<br><br>For example, if you need to make X amount of profit on each sale, decide which niche product will allow this and then find a wholesale product supplier with true wholesale prices so that you are able to realize the amount of profit you are aiming for.<br><br>Now, work out your marketing, promotions and how you will drive traffic to your ecommerce dropship web site or eBay, Amazon or whichever online marketplace you have chosen. <br><br>Be realistic with your objectives and your plans. Don’t set your sights too high but don’t set them too low, either. Remember that in many cases throughout life, we get exactly what we bargained on getting. In other words, if you are willing to settle for a paltry profit, that’s all you will get. But, aim a little higher and you’ll get that, too. So, hit a happy medium.<br><br>Once you have made a roadmap to success, you will have a track to run on. This will serve you well on the days when your motivation has taken a hike or you feel distracted for one reason or another. With a plan, you can stick to it and muddle along---still making progress and moving forward---until you get your groove back. <br><br>To be successful with a home dropship business….plan your work and work your plan!<br><br><br><p>&nbsp;</p><p>Start your own online <a href="http://www.dropshipaccess.com" mce_href="http://www.dropshipaccess.com">dropship</a> business today!<br></p> <img src="http://track.hubspot.com/__ptq.gif?a=41336&k=14&bu=http://blog.dropshipaccess.com/&r=http://blog.dropshipaccess.com/bid/101207/Dropship-Tips-Plan-Your-Work-Work-Your-Plan&bvt=rss">Greg ScottSun, 29 Sep 2013 00:13:00 GMTf1397696-738c-4295-afcd-943feb885714:101207http://blog.dropshipaccess.com/bid/101206/6-Tips-to-Make-Working-From-Home-Work-for-You-With-Dropshipping#Comments06 Tips to Make Working From Home Work for You With Dropshippinghttp://blog.dropshipaccess.com/bid/101206/6-Tips-to-Make-Working-From-Home-Work-for-You-With-Dropshipping<br><p><img src="http://blog.dropshipaccess.com/Portals/41336/images/homebus-resized-600.jpg" alt="work at home dropshipping" class="alignRight" style="float: right;" border="0">Would you love to be working from home and wondering if you could make it work for you with the <a href="http://www.dropshipaccess.com/" title="dropshipping " target="_blank"><strong>dropshipping</strong> </a>business model?<br><br>Good news!

Decide on a hot niche, one that will have enough demand to keep you in traffic and sales. You can check out eBay to see which products are popular with a high sell through rate, check keywords of possible niche products in the free Google Keyword Tools to find out how many global searches are performed for it each month, read reviews on Amazon and check out the Amazon Top 100 in each category, as well.<br><br>2. Find a reputable wholesale product source that will give you genuine wholesale prices, has high quality products and good business practices such as prompt shipping, sending low inventory notices so you don’t over sell and more. <br><br>3. Choose your dropship products and then list them on your website, or the online venue of your choice such as eBay or Amazon.<br><br>4. Market your dropship home business. Use social media marketing, email marketing, content marketing, video marketing and more to drive traffic to your web site or listings. Remember, business goes where it’s invited, so invite people to check out your dropship products.<br><br>5. Provide great customer service. This is the backbone of any sales enterprise both online and off.

Not bad! When you stop and think about how many sites there are on the gigantic World Wide Web, that is quite an accolade and should provide you with a pretty good idea of just how popular videos really are.<br><br>People like to watch videos. It’s just that simple. Marketing videos are tremendously effective if done right and you don’t have to be a Hollywood movie producer to make a great one, either.</p> <p><br><br><img src="http://blog.dropshipaccess.com/Portals/41336/images/movie1.JPG" alt="dropship video marketing" class="alignLeft" style="float: left;" border="0">Any home video camera, even a digital camera that will record a few minutes of video will do.<br><br>Here are few tips on how to use video marketing top grown and build your ecommerce home dropship business.<br><br></p> <ul> <li>Think about your target market and audience before you make your marketing video. What demographic is most likely to be interested in your niche or dropship product/s? The style and theme of your video should be geared toward your audience. For example, if you are dropshopping wheelchair baskets, you don’t want to have hip hop music blaring in the background and someone with full body tattoos and a Mohawk as the star of your production. Why not? Because most older folks who are shopping for a handy little basket for their wheelchair are not going to be into rap or any New Wave, Punk stuff. In fact, they might not even watch it. So, tailor your marketing videos to your audience.</li> </ul> <br> <ul> <li>Don’t make your marketing videos too long. On You Tube, the optimal length of a video is between 60 and 90 seconds. You can go over that time period by a little bit, but not a lot. If you make it drag on too long, viewers lose interest and leave. So, your script must be succinct, to the point and pack a punch with a minimum amount of dialogue and in a short length of time. Be sure to get your primary message in there within the first 15 seconds or so. Now, if you are making a video for your dropshipping website, such as a how-to or product demonstration video, you can make it about 4 minutes more or less.</li> </ul> <br> <ul> <li>Don’t use too much sales hype. Yes, your goal in making marketing videos is to drive traffic and increase your home dropship business sales. But don’t come on like Crazy Eddie the Used Car Salesman. You must walk a fine line between marketing your business and turning viewers off with too much focus on salesy stuff. People respond very well to humor, so if you can make a short, funny marketing video, you might have a winner.</li> </ul> <br>Use those tips on how to use video marketing to grow your ecommerce home dropship business and enjoy all the extra sales and profits those videos generate for you!<br><br><br><br><br><p>&nbsp;</p><p>Start your own online <a href="http://www.dropshipaccess.com" mce_href="http://www.dropshipaccess.com">dropship</a> business today!<br></p> <img src="http://track.hubspot.com/__ptq.gif?a=41336&k=14&bu=http://blog.dropshipaccess.com/&r=http://blog.dropshipaccess.com/bid/101136/How-to-Use-Video-Marketing-to-Grow-Your-Home-Dropship-Business&bvt=rss">Amanda BrookeThu, 26 Sep 2013 15:57:00 GMTf1397696-738c-4295-afcd-943feb885714:101136http://blog.dropshipaccess.com/bid/101111/Holiday-Shopping-on-eBay-Is-Your-Home-Dropship-Business-Ready#Comments0Holiday Shopping on eBay: Is Your Home Dropship Business Ready?http://blog.dropshipaccess.com/bid/101111/Holiday-Shopping-on-eBay-Is-Your-Home-Dropship-Business-Ready<br><img src="http://blog.dropshipaccess.com/Portals/41336/images/xmas.JPG" alt="holidays eBay dropship" class="alignRight" style="float: right;" border="0">Holiday shopping on eBay will be a BIG deal, so you need to ask yourself this question: Is your home <a href="http://www.dropshipaccess.com/" title="dropship" target="_blank"><strong>dropship</strong></a> business ready?<br><br>eBay is one of the internet marketplace giants, second only to Amazon. According to eBiz, eBay ranks number 8 among the top 15 websites, with Amazon coming in just above it at number 7. eBay gets an estimated 210 million visits a month. <br><br>Wow!<br><br>That’s a lot, but hold on to your hat because during the upcoming holiday season that number will go up---way up. So, any eBay dropship seller needs to get prepared for all of those shoppers and all that extra traffic. If you have been having a sort of blah year to date, the holiday spending spree will offer you a chance to get caught up and boost your bottom line for the year’s sales.<br><br>This is unlikely to happen unless you start making preparations for the increased holiday shopping on eBay for 2013.<br><br>Here are some things you can do to get your eBay house in order for the holidays:<br><br> <ul> <li>Add holiday themed gifts to your line up of dropship products. Since you don’t have to pay for your products up front, it won’t cost you one thin dime to browse your wholesale product source listings and choose some items that will be in demand for the holidays. This includes Halloween and Thanksgiving, by the way, not just Christmas. And then there’s Kwanzaa and Hanukkah to think about.</li> </ul> <br> <ul> <li>Include a calendar in your listings that clearly shows shoppers how many days they have left to purchase your product in order to get delivery before Christmas. Many shoppers procrastinate and being able to see the deadline right in front of them may spur those who tend to put things off into going ahead and buying right then and there.</li> </ul> <br> <ul> <li>Let your listing templates show some holiday spirit. For example, you can do Halloween themed templates, Thanksgiving themed, Christmas themed and New years as well. Festive templates help to get shoppers in the holiday mood.</li> </ul> <br> <ul> <li>Black Friday is not just for brick and mortar stores. You should have your Black Friday specials up by Thanksgiving or even earlier. Don’t forget Cyber Monday, either. This is a big online shopping day that takes place the Monday after Thanksgiving, so plan ahead with your marketing and promotions for this extra traffic and buying day.</li> </ul> <br> <ul> <li>Be sure that your listings and templates are mobile friendly. More shoppers than ever before are predicted to buy from mobile devices this year and you don’t want to miss the boat.</li> </ul> <br> <ul> <li>Consider adding Best Offer to your Fixed Price listings or Buy It Now to your auction listings. A lot of shoppers are not going to want to wait for an auction to end if they see something they like, so give them the option of an on the spot purchase. You may or may not choose to require immediate payment with a Buy It Now purchase, but it isn’t a bad idea.</li> </ul> <br>Use these tips for holiday shopping and selling on eBay to get your home dropship business ready to make those sales!<br><br><br><br><br><p>&nbsp;</p><p>Start your own online <a href="http://www.dropshipaccess.com" mce_href="http://www.dropshipaccess.com">dropship</a> business today!<br></p> <img src="http://track.hubspot.com/__ptq.gif?a=41336&k=14&bu=http://blog.dropshipaccess.com/&r=http://blog.dropshipaccess.com/bid/101111/Holiday-Shopping-on-eBay-Is-Your-Home-Dropship-Business-Ready&bvt=rss">Amanda BrookeWed, 25 Sep 2013 19:54:00 GMTf1397696-738c-4295-afcd-943feb885714:101111http://blog.dropshipaccess.com/bid/101086/How-to-Write-Good-Web-Content-for-Your-Home-Dropship-Business#Comments0How to Write Good Web Content for Your Home Dropship Businesshttp://blog.dropshipaccess.com/bid/101086/How-to-Write-Good-Web-Content-for-Your-Home-Dropship-Business<br><img src="http://blog.dropshipaccess.com/Portals/41336/images/writerjpg.JPG" alt="web content dropship business" class="alignRight" style="float: right;" border="0">Did you know that if you learn how to write good web content for your home <a href="http://www.dropshipaccess.com/" title="dropship" target="_blank"><strong>dropship</strong></a> business, your sales and profits will increase?<br><br>It’s true. Since the Google Panda and Penguin algorithm updates, high quality web content carries more weight than ever before with Google and the other major search engines.<br><br>You need fresh, relevant web content that offers something of value to readers for your ecommerce home dropship business. <br><br>Writing good web content isn’t rocket science and chances are that with practice, you can become at least proficient enough to make a good impression on Google so that your dropship site will rank higher in the SERPs, or Search Engine Results Pages. If you are an eBay or Amazon dropship seller, your content is just as important as if you had a website of your own. This means your titles and descriptions, basically.<br><br>Here are some timely tips on how to write good web content that is searchable and converts to sales.<br><br> <ul> <li>Decide which keywords you are going to focus on. In most cases, you will be better served by staying away from the most often used keywords for your niche and drilling down to develop long tail keywords phrases instead. One very good benefit to doing this is that you get more targeted traffic that converts to sales more easily.</li> </ul> <br> <ul> <li>Learn decent SEO so that you can use your keywords to best advantage. SEO is still of extreme importance and it needs to be done right in order to be effective. So, if you aren’t proficient in basic SEO---take a webinar or read about how to use best SEO practices until you have a pretty good grasp of it.</li> </ul> <br> <ul> <li>Make sure that your content isn’t misspelled or riddled with typos or poor grammar. This tends to give people the impression that you aren’t the sharpest knife in the drawer, or that you’re slovenly and careless---or both. This is not the way to win customers. So use spell check and proofread your content for typos and grammar.</li> </ul> <br> <ul> <li>Work at making your product descriptions and any content about your dropshipping products as attractive as possible. After all, you’re trying to make a sale. So, without a ton of sales hype, focus on how your product can solve a problem for the shopper. People are far less interested in the nuts and bolts features of a widget than they are in what it can do for them.</li> </ul> <br> <ul> <li>Practice writing good calls to action. You can write the best sales copy in the world but if you don’t have a strong, clear call to action, you will lose a lot of sales. A call to action needs to be unambiguous. Make it direct and straight to the point by asking for the sale. This is what you want the shopper to do, so let them know that.</li> </ul> <br>Use these tips to help write good web content for your ecommerce home dropship business and watch those sales soar!<p>&nbsp;</p><p>Start your own online <a href="http://www.dropshipaccess.com" mce_href="http://www.dropshipaccess.com">dropship</a> business today!<br></p> <img src="http://track.hubspot.com/__ptq.gif?a=41336&k=14&bu=http://blog.dropshipaccess.com/&r=http://blog.dropshipaccess.com/bid/101086/How-to-Write-Good-Web-Content-for-Your-Home-Dropship-Business&bvt=rss">Greg ScottWed, 25 Sep 2013 00:18:00 GMTf1397696-738c-4295-afcd-943feb885714:101086http://blog.dropshipaccess.com/bid/101084/5-Tips-to-Streamline-Your-Ecommerce-Dropship-Business-Checkout#Comments05 Tips to Streamline Your Ecommerce Dropship Business Checkout http://blog.dropshipaccess.com/bid/101084/5-Tips-to-Streamline-Your-Ecommerce-Dropship-Business-Checkout<br><img src="http://blog.dropshipaccess.com/Portals/41336/images/checkoutcart.JPG" alt="dropship checkout" class="alignLeft" style="float: left;" border="0">One of the main things you can do to boost sales and increase your conversion rate is to speed up your ecommerce <strong><a href="http://www.dropshipaccess.com/" title="dropship" target="_blank">dropship</a></strong> business checkout process.<br><br>Internet retail analysts have long confirmed that in the sales funnel, checkout is probably the biggest jumping off place for buyers who abandon their shopping carts and leave your dropshipping site without completing a purchase.<br><br>So, if you can work on your checkout to make it as quick, painless and streamlined as possible for shoppers, you can reasonably expect to see a surge in your sales and an increase in your conversion rate.<br><br>Here are 5 tips to streamline your ecommerce dropship checkout process:<br><br>I. Don’t ask for too much info. Although you really do want to get shoppers signed up on your opt-in email marketing subscription list, this is secondary to actually making the sale. Don’t distract someone who has placed your items in their shopping cart and gotten that far along in the conversion process by forms to fill out that are not directly part of the checkout and payment process. The forms that do have to be filled out need to be kept as short and simple as possible. If someone is on the point of completing a purchase, hurry things along as fast as you can lest they have a change of heart.<br><br>II. Do display your trust and safety symbols prominently on the checkout page. Since this is one of the biggest hurdles that must be cleared with online shoppers in order to make a sale, you want to give them plenty of assurance that their personal and financial info is safe and secure on your site. <br><br>III. Do have a progress bar that shows shoppers exactly where they are in the checkout process.&nbsp; If you require the email address to be entered twice as most sites do and someone flubs up when entering one of the email addresses---or on any other place on the shipping or billing info forms---be sure to highlight the error so that they can plainly see where they went wrong. Having to play some kind of guessing game or using process of elimination to get these forms filled out correctly has caused man an abandoned shopping cart.<br><br>IV. Keep the steps in the checkout process to as few as you possibly can, preferably no more than three. The fewer steps there are from start to finish of checkout, the more sales you will make and the fewer abandoned shopping carts by people who have had time to get cold feet. <br><br>V. Do display your contact info prominently on the checkout page. It reassures shoppers to know that it will be easy to get in touch with you if they have a question or problem. Display your privacy policy, shipping policy and returns policy, as well. If shoppers can see this stuff at a glance while checking out, they won’t have to leave the checkout page to go and track it down. Once someone exit’s the sales funnel, you may not get them back into it.<br><br>Use these 5 tips to streamline your ecommerce dropship business checkout and make more sales!<p>&nbsp;</p><p>Start your own online <a href="http://www.dropshipaccess.com" mce_href="http://www.dropshipaccess.com">dropship</a> business today!<br></p> <img src="http://track.hubspot.com/__ptq.gif?a=41336&k=14&bu=http://blog.dropshipaccess.com/&r=http://blog.dropshipaccess.com/bid/101084/5-Tips-to-Streamline-Your-Ecommerce-Dropship-Business-Checkout&bvt=rss">Amanda BrookeTue, 24 Sep 2013 19:39:00 GMTf1397696-738c-4295-afcd-943feb885714:101084http://blog.dropshipaccess.com/bid/100987/The-Advantages-of-Dropshipping-on-Amazon#Comments0The Advantages of Dropshipping on Amazonhttp://blog.dropshipaccess.com/bid/100987/The-Advantages-of-Dropshipping-on-Amazon<br><img src="http://blog.dropshipaccess.com/Portals/41336/images/home office 7.JPG" alt="dropshipping Amazon home business" class="alignRight" style="float: right;" border="0">Anyone who is interested in walking away from a low paying, high stress job in favor of achieving both personal and financial freedom with an ecommerce home business of their own might be interested in finding out about the advantages of <a href="http://www.dropshipaccess.com/" title="dropshipping" target="_blank"><strong>dropshipping</strong></a> on Amazon.<br><br>Although it is probably true that there is no such thing as a perfect job, being your own boss and working from home comes mighty close.

Many savvy ecommerce entrepreneurs know this and take full advantage of it, to their benefit. It works for them and it can work for you, too!<br><br>If you are a newbie to the ecommerce scene, you might not be familiar with link building and might appreciate a short explanation of what it is and how it works. As is so often the case, we will turn to that wonderful free web encyclopedia Wikipedia to furnish us with a concise definition of what link building is:<br><br>“In the field of search engine optimization, link building describes actions aimed at increasing the number and quality of inbound links to a page.”<br><br>Now, that isn’t quite all you need to know, but it will get you started, along with a few more little helpful tidbits such as a rudimentary understanding of reciprocal link building.<br><br>Reciprocal links are links between two sites.&nbsp; For example let’s say that you have a dropship website selling baby clothes and you set up a reciprocal link with a website that sells baby strollers, high chairs, play pens and so on. This would be a mutually advantageous arrangement because your products correlate. In other words, people shopping for baby equipment are probably going to be buying baby clothes and vice versa. Reciprocal links are good things provided that the sites you link to are of high quality. Link to poor quality sites and you will suffer for it as Google takes a dim view of this and will penalize you accordingly.<br><br>Now let’s look at how you can build your dropship home business with link building. Here are some tips that will help:<br><br> <ul> <li>Guest posting is a fantastic way to build quality links. Write some high quality guest posts for blogs that relate to your niche and the owners will ordinarily allow you to link to your own site. If you acquire high quality backlinks for your guest blogs, you will be taking giant steps toward building your business!</li> </ul> <br> <ul> <li>Press releases are another fantastic way to build your dropship home business. Get some great press releases together and distribute them to high quality news portals. Google will pick them up and you’re in line Flynn!</li> </ul> <br> <ul> <li>Social media is yet another way to build backlinks and is an excellent method of link building that will pay you back big time!</li> </ul> <br> <ul> <li>Internal links are also great! Link to other relevant content within your own site. Google rewards you for being user friendly and when you direct readers to other, similar high quality content within your site, you make points with Google.</li> </ul> <br>Once you learn how to use link building correctly, you can grow your ecommerce dropship home business and increase profits!<br><p>&nbsp;</p><p>Start your own online <a href="http://www.dropshipaccess.com" mce_href="http://www.dropshipaccess.com">dropship</a> business today!<br></p> <img src="http://track.hubspot.com/__ptq.gif?a=41336&k=14&bu=http://blog.dropshipaccess.com/&r=http://blog.dropshipaccess.com/bid/100919/How-to-Use-Link-Building-to-Grow-Your-Dropship-Home-Business&bvt=rss">Greg ScottThu, 19 Sep 2013 00:31:00 GMTf1397696-738c-4295-afcd-943feb885714:100919http://blog.dropshipaccess.com/bid/100915/3-Top-SEO-Tips-Dropshipping-for-the-Holidays#Comments03 Top SEO Tips: Dropshipping for the Holidays http://blog.dropshipaccess.com/bid/100915/3-Top-SEO-Tips-Dropshipping-for-the-Holidays<br><img src="http://blog.dropshipaccess.com/Portals/41336/images/santa.jpg" alt="SEO dropshipping tips holidays" class="alignLeft" style="float: left;" border="0">These 3 top SEO tips can increase <a href="http://www.dropshipaccess.com/" title="dropshipping " target="_blank"><strong>dropshipping</strong> </a>sales for the holidays.<br><br>Believe it or not, even though Halloween is still over a month away, there are already shoppers flocking to the internet to get started on their shopping for the holidays.<br><br>While there are many procrastinators who leave it until the last possible minute, there are also a great number of people who like to get started with their shopping for the winter holidays early and are online now buying gifts for those on their lists.<br><br>Using proper SEO can greatly increase your dropshipping sales during the holidays. Don’t let anyone tell you that SEO is obsolete because it most assuredly is not. When you run across someone that adheres to the belief that SEO is dead, it is someone who was not using SEO best practices anyway….probably a former proponent of the old Black Hat SEO.<br><br>This type of SEO truly is history and we should all be thankful that it is no more. Article farmers who paid people from underprivileged countries literal pennies to crank out hundreds and thousands of articles that were complete and total garbage with no value to anybody. The sole purpose of these “articals” was to pump out keywords in great volume. Never mind whether this content made sense or not (usually not) as long as there were scads of keywords. Those days are gone.<br><br>Nowadays, you need to use SEO in such a way that Google and the other search engines will smile upon you. To do this, follow these 3 top SEO tips:<br><br>1. Choose your keywords wisely. This is one of the key elements of good SEO. For instance, if your niche is pet supplies, don’t focus on “pet supplies” as your main keyword phrase. Instead, go with long tail keywords that describe your products, such as “heated dog bed” or “rawhide treats” or whatever. You get the idea. The principle here is to avoid keywords or keyword phrases that will have a ton of competition. Drill down for less used but more relevant and focused long tailed keywords.<br><br>2. Write for readers, not for the search engines. This is a critical point in today’s SEO. Google and the other major search engines want high quality content, not gibberish stuffed with keywords. Your content should be interesting, informative or educational… even humorous. It doesn’t matter so much which, what matters is that it be of some value to readers. If you are a complete washout at writing decent content, it would be worth your while and money to hire a freelancer or pay a talented friend or acquaintance to do it for you.<br><br>3. Employ quality link building. This is another big change since the Google Penguin and Panda updates. Google never did like poor quality links and now it absolutely hates them. With Google, you are judged by the company you keep, so forget buying links by the droves just to have them. Instead, go for high quality, relevant links that will gain you brownie points with the search engines.<br><br>Use these 3 Top SEO tips to boost dropshipping sales during the upcoming holidays!<p>&nbsp;</p><p>Start your own online <a href="http://www.dropshipaccess.com" mce_href="http://www.dropshipaccess.com">dropship</a> business today!<br></p> <img src="http://track.hubspot.com/__ptq.gif?a=41336&k=14&bu=http://blog.dropshipaccess.com/&r=http://blog.dropshipaccess.com/bid/100915/3-Top-SEO-Tips-Dropshipping-for-the-Holidays&bvt=rss">Amanda BrookeWed, 18 Sep 2013 21:00:00 GMTf1397696-738c-4295-afcd-943feb885714:100915http://blog.dropshipaccess.com/bid/100868/Pet-Supplies-Dropshippers-Holiday-Gifts-for-Pets-Boost-Sales#Comments0Pet Supplies Dropshippers: Holiday Gifts for Pets Boost Saleshttp://blog.dropshipaccess.com/bid/100868/Pet-Supplies-Dropshippers-Holiday-Gifts-for-Pets-Boost-Sales<br><img src="http://blog.dropshipaccess.com/Portals/41336/images/christmasdog.jpg" alt="pet supplies dropshippers holidays" class="alignRight" style="float: right;" border="0">Heads up pet supplies <a href="http://www.dropshipaccess.com/" title="dropshippers" target="_blank"><strong>dropshippers</strong></a>: you can boost sales during the upcoming holiday season with gifts for Fido and Fluffy, plus a variety of other pets.<br><br>According to statistics, people spend a lot of money on their pets. In fact, pet supplies is a fantastic dropshipping niche for this very reason. If you have been longing to walk away from a job you hate in favor of being your own boss and working from home with an ecommerce business, pet supplies as a niche has tons of promise!<br><br>This is especially true during the winter holidays when indulgent pet owners lavish gifts on their four footed friends, or in some cases---two footed or no feet. While it may seem strange to think that someone would buy Christmas gifts for a snake or a fish, people do it. Birds are big favorites for holiday gifts, as well. Actually, almost any kind of pet is a candidate for holiday gifts, so you would probably be well advised to offer a little something for many different sorts of pets.<br><br>That being said, the emphasis will be on felines and canines as cats and dogs are the most popular pets in the world.<br><br>Now, what kind of dropship products would appeal to pet owners looking for that special gift for a furry friend or friends?<br><br>Here are a few suggestions:<br><br> <ul> <li>Toys for dogs</li> <li>Toys for cats</li> <li>Stockings to hang by the chimney</li> <li>Edible treats for dogs</li> <li>Edible treats for cats</li> <li>Dog beds</li> <li>Cat beds</li> <li>Cat condos</li> <li>Cat scratching pads</li> <li>Heated crate or pet bed pads</li> <li>And much more</li> </ul> <br>If you are skeptical that there is really much of a demand for pet gifts during the holidays, take a look at these stats from the American Pet Products Association:<br><br> <ul> <li>53% of dogs and 38 percent of cats receive gifts at Christmas, according to those surveyed in the American Pet Products Association (APPA) 2011 / 2012 National Pet Owners Survey.</li> </ul> <br> <ul> <li>Pet retail segments are traditionally among the leaders during the holiday selling seasons, even in the toughest of economic situations.

Tune Up Your Website---Your dropship website needs to run like a well oiled machine 24/7, but if there was ever a time when a fast website with no errors was doubly important, it is the winter holidays shopping season. Check to make sure your pages are all loading correctly with no dreaded 404 errors and that it is loading FAST. Online shoppers are notoriously impatient at the best of times and when they are trying to do their holiday shopping you can count on their patience wearing thin. So, check your website thoroughly to make sure it’s as good as it can be.<br><br>2. Tweak Your SEO---Contrary to what you might have heard, SEO is not dead. In fact, it’s alive and thriving. You must utilize good SEO if you want to maximize sales through the holidays. Make sure you have lots of fresh, relevant content. Tweak your product descriptions and images. Use SEO on your social media pages and in all of your marketing tactics such as email newsletters.<br><br>3. Use Social Media---The holidays are a fantastic time to use social media marketing to its best advantage. Have some contests, offer freebies and coupons, give people an incentive to buy from your dropshipping website. You should decorate your social media pages for the holidays, too. Don’t overload it but do have some festive images and colors.<br><br>4. Map out a strong marketing campaign for the holidays. You can’t wait until the last minute and expect to be as successful as you would have been if you had gotten your ducks in a row and started earlier. Sit down and figure out exactly how you are going to market your dropshipping products, plan your promotions carefully and decide how you will boost your sales accordingly.<br><br>5. Last but not least, decide what dropship products you might add that will boost your sales during the holidays. You may think that your niche won’t lend itself well to adding gift type products and actually---it may not. If you are selling items such as incontinence pads, for example, there simply isn’t much of a way to get festive or add extra products that would make nice gifts and correlate with your niche. But, for the most part, most niches would be prime for adding extra money makers during the winter holidays. If you dropship camping supplies, for instance, the holidays present a great opportunity to highlight down sleeping bags suitable for cold weather camping. <br><br>Use these 5 dropshipping tips to gear up for the winter holidays and you’ll be sure to rake in a lot of extra sales and profits!<br><br><br><p>&nbsp;</p><p>Start your own online <a href="http://www.dropshipaccess.com" mce_href="http://www.dropshipaccess.com">dropship</a> business today!<br></p> <img src="http://track.hubspot.com/__ptq.gif?a=41336&k=14&bu=http://blog.dropshipaccess.com/&r=http://blog.dropshipaccess.com/bid/100867/5-Dropshipping-Tips-Gearing-Up-For-the-Holidays&bvt=rss">Amanda BrookeTue, 17 Sep 2013 15:37:00 GMTf1397696-738c-4295-afcd-943feb885714:100867http://blog.dropshipaccess.com/bid/100627/How-to-Unlock-the-Secrets-of-SEO-Build-Your-Dropship-Business#Comments0How to Unlock the Secrets of SEO & Build Your Dropship Businesshttp://blog.dropshipaccess.com/bid/100627/How-to-Unlock-the-Secrets-of-SEO-Build-Your-Dropship-Business<br><img src="http://blog.dropshipaccess.com/Portals/41336/images/lock.JPG" alt="dropship SEO unlock secrets" class="alignLeft" style="float: left;" border="0">Did you know that if you unlock the secrets of effective SEO, you can build and grow your home <a href="http://www.dropshipaccess.com/" title="dropship" target="_blank"><strong>dropship</strong></a> business?<br><br>SEO, or Search Engine Optimization, isn’t rocket science. You don’t have to be a computer geek or Albert Einstein to master it and make it work for you in your ecommerce business.<br><br>But, you do have to acquire a basic, fundamental understanding of what SEO is and what it can do for you.<br><br>To begin, let’s start by laying to rest one of the myths about SEO circulating around the internet and elsewhere. That is the myth that SEO is dead. <br><br>Head up! SEO is NOT dead! One wonders where these SEO doomsday sayers are getting their information but it is not based on fact. Far from it, in fact. SEO may be more important than ever in driving traffic to your website and dropship listings.<br><br>Here is the thing about SEO: It’s not your mother’s SEO, for sure. The advent of the Google Penguin and Panda algorithm updates did change the way SEO works to some extent. But, be assured that these changes were strictly for the better.<br><br>In the olden days of Google and SEO, you would see so-called “articles” that made absolutely no sense. They were jam packed with keywords to the extent that they were literally just nonsensical jibber jabber with the sole intent being to stuff as many keywords as possible into a document of a few hundred words.<br><br>Thank goodness---those days are gone. Or, they’re gone for savvy ecommerce entrepreneurs who want Google and the other search engines to smile on them.<br><br>No more article farmers pumping out that worthless drivel in an effort to boost their search rankings. This is a good thing! <br><br>Nowadays, if you want to understand they mysteries of SEO, think in terms of quality.<br><br>Quality.<br><br>Quality for the readers who run across your content, either on or off your website or listings on eBay and/or Amazon. High quality content that gives readers something of actual, real value instead of tons of keyword stuffed mishmash that isn’t worth wasting time or energy reading.<br><br>In order to understand the secrets of SEO best practices, don’t write your content for keywords only. Instead, write (or have written, such as the case may be) good quality content that provides a reader with something valuable in some way. It might be educational, instructional, inspiring, humorous….you get the idea. Whatever your content may be, subject wise, it should be worth a reader’s time. <br><br>Google’s Panda and Penguin updates reward this type of high quality content by giving it a boost in search ranking. This is worth untold amounts of money to you because it will drive traffic to your site or listings and increase sales and profits.<br><br>Besides good quality content, Google also wants relevant, fresh content.<br><br>What does this mean? Basically, it simply means that Google wants you to deliver the goods, as regards your content. We’ve all seen the bat and switch stuff on the web with a punchy, attention grabbing title such as “Woman Has Rat Baby” only to click on it and discover a woman has a pet baby rat. Not, as we were led to believe, given birth to a rat.<br><br>Google wants you to keep your content in line and relevant to what your link or title promised the viewer. No bait and switch. Again---a good thing.<br><br>As far as fresh content, this is self explanatory. Google likes fresh, new content. The more the better.

Anyone who feels trapped in a job that brings them nothing except high stress and low pay can take heart from this, because if you want to make a break for personal and financial freedom and work from home, there is a light at the end of the tunnel with the dropshipping business model.<br><br>Why do so many people stay on and on in jobs that make them totally miserable? <br><br>Well, there might be several reasons for this, depending on the individual circumstances. Here are a few things that cause many people to keep slogging away at a dead end job instead of starting their own home business:<br><br>A. Fear that it would require a lot of start up money <br><br>B. Fear that they would have a lengthy period without an income while the business got on its feet and started making a profit<br><br>C. Fear of failure<br><br>D. Fear of giving up a steady paycheck and venturing into the unknown<br><br>Let’s tackle these reasons for hesitating about starting an online home business in dropshipping one by one:<br><br>A. Fear that starting a home drop ship business would require a big chunk of capital. In a traditional brick and mortar business, and even some ecommerce businesses, this would be true and a definite deterrent to a lot of wannabe ecommerce entrepreneurs without a sizable bank roll to get then started. Not so for a dropshipping business. You don’t have to pay for your products up front, only paying the wholesale product source as each item is sold and you have collected the money for it from your buyer. So---no inventory to buy! You never have the products in your physical possession, either, so there is no expense or labor of housing inventory. This also means that you are spared the expense and hassle of shipping. All you have to do is sell, sell, sell!<br><br>B. Fear of having a long wait before profits start flowing in. With a dropshipping business, this is not a concern as it is with a traditional business. Why not? Because you can select the products you want to dropship and list them on the venue of your choice with a few clicks of your mouse and you’re in business….ready to start making sales an profits literally immediately.<br><br>C. Fear of failure. Fear of failure holds so many people back from the good things in life that could be theirs if they managed to overcome the timidity and fear that is holding them back. Yes, it’s possible to fail. But if you have good, strong work habits and are willing to put your shoulder to the wheel and do what needs to be done in order to succeed with a home dropshipping business, there is no reason for failure. As FDR once said, there is nothing to fear but fear itself. <br><br>D. Fear of the unknown and giving up a steady paycheck. Admittedly, it can be pretty scary taking a leap of faith into the unknown. But, as the old saying goes, if you always do what you’ve always done, you’ll always get what you’ve always got. Not particularly grammatical, but true. In order to change your life for the better, you have to overcome your fear of making the change and just do it. <br><br>A home dropshipping business can give you a quality of life that is simply not possible while working and making money for somebody other than yourself. You will be doing more than making a living---you’ll be making a life. <br><br>So, take the first steps toward changing your life for the better today with a home dropshipping business!<br><br><p>&nbsp;</p><p>Start your own online <a href="http://www.dropshipaccess.com" mce_href="http://www.dropshipaccess.com">dropship</a> business today!<br></p> <img src="http://track.hubspot.com/__ptq.gif?a=41336&k=14&bu=http://blog.dropshipaccess.com/&r=http://blog.dropshipaccess.com/bid/100574/How-to-Change-Your-Life-With-a-Home-Dropshipping-Business&bvt=rss">Greg ScottThu, 05 Sep 2013 00:28:00 GMTf1397696-738c-4295-afcd-943feb885714:100574http://blog.dropshipaccess.com/bid/100572/4-Money-Making-Tips-for-Successful-Dropshipping-on-eBay#Comments04 Money Making Tips for Successful Dropshipping on eBayhttp://blog.dropshipaccess.com/bid/100572/4-Money-Making-Tips-for-Successful-Dropshipping-on-eBay<br><img id="img-1378327558353" src="http://blog.dropshipaccess.com/Portals/41336/images/success1.JPG" alt="eBay dropshipping success" class="alignLeft" style="float: left;" border="0">Would you like to get 4 simple tips for making money <a href="http://www.dropshipaccess.com/" title="dropshipping" target="_blank"><strong>dropshipping</strong></a> on eBay?<br><br>While you might have heard some negative talk to the contrary, the truth is that there are plenty of successful ecommerce entrepreneurs dropshipping on eBay and loving it! One thing you should always keep in mind when you run across these doomsday stories about how making money on eBay with the dropship business model is impossible is that in many---or even most---cases, these people would have failed at any endeavor, not just dropshipping on eBay.<br><br>Let’s face it. We all know the pessimistic people who moan and groan all the time about basically anything and everything.<br><br>These are the Eeyores of the world. The thing is that things don’t usually improve much for these folks because they never recognize or acknowledge the reason for their misery and repeated failures. What is the problem? Why do some people fall flat on their faces time after time, in one venture or job after another?<br><br>The problem is their attitude and in all too many cases, things such as poor work ethics, unrealistic expectations, poor planning and management, and so on.<br><br>If you are the type of person who has a winning attitude and you have what it takes to be successful in an online business, you most definitely can succeed with dropshipping on eBay.<br><br>Here are 4 money making tips to help you achieve that success:<br><br>1. Offer free shipping. Internet research has shown beyond any and all doubt that the average online shopper is more likely to buy if free shipping is offered. You can factor in the amount of shipping into your starting auction price or your fixed price listing so that you don’t lose any money. This is a win-win for all concerned. You make more sales and the buyer is happy with free shipping.<br><br>2. Learn and use the eBay jargon so that your titles will pack more of a punch and provide more info to shoppers. Since eBay expanded the number of characters allowed in the titles, it has been a big help. Still, knowing how to use eBay Speak effectively can make your titles even better. Here are a few to get you started: NWT---New With Tags. NIB---New In Box. OSFA---One Size Fits All. There are more, just scout around some auctions and learn the lingo.<br><br>3. Research pricing in your niche or of your dropshipping products so that you are competitive with your competitors. Don’t try to undersell them, though. Shoppers are not averse to paying more for something that has more perceived value. You can beef up the perceived value of your items by having better descriptions and images than your competition, offering free shipping, 14 day returns, etc. <br><br>4. Timing is everything! There is literally no telling how many people have failed as dropshipping sellers on eBay because they didn’t grasp the importance of timing. For example, you may be a night owl who loves to stay up all night, but having your listings end in the wee hours of the morning is just plain dumb. How many insomniac shoppers are likely to be online at 3 am and shopping on eBay? A few, yes, but not enough to offset the loss of traffic from the people who went to bed and slept through the night, as most of us do. Keep in mind that eBay runs on PST. You should adjust your timing for ending listings accordingly. <br><br>Use these 4 money making tips for dropshipping on eBay and watch those sales start pouring in!<br><br><br><p>&nbsp;</p><p>Start your own online <a href="http://www.dropshipaccess.com" mce_href="http://www.dropshipaccess.com">dropship</a> business today!<br></p> <img src="http://track.hubspot.com/__ptq.gif?a=41336&k=14&bu=http://blog.dropshipaccess.com/&r=http://blog.dropshipaccess.com/bid/100572/4-Money-Making-Tips-for-Successful-Dropshipping-on-eBay&bvt=rss">Amanda BrookeWed, 04 Sep 2013 20:41:00 GMTf1397696-738c-4295-afcd-943feb885714:100572http://blog.dropshipaccess.com/bid/100502/Tips-for-Spooktacular-Halloween-Dropship-Business-Sales#Comments0Tips for Spooktacular Halloween Dropship Business Saleshttp://blog.dropshipaccess.com/bid/100502/Tips-for-Spooktacular-Halloween-Dropship-Business-Sales<br><img src="http://blog.dropshipaccess.com/Portals/41336/images/halloween1.JPG" alt="tips for dropship Halloween sales" class="alignRight" style="float: right;" border="0">Halloween is just around the corner and this is your chance to scare up some spooktacular <a href="http://www.dropshipaccess.com/" title="dropship" target="_blank"><strong>dropship</strong></a> business sales!<br><br>Savvy ecommerce entrepreneurs understand the value of holiday sales and how you can greatly boost your bottom line by offering the products online shoppers will be looking for to celebrate these festive occasions such as Halloween.<br><br>Here is a little piece of pertinent info you might not know about Halloween: It’s the third largest of the year.

We expect retailers to stock their shelves well ahead of time to capture the attention of eager holiday shoppers.” <br><br>Here are a few tips to help you get a slice of this extremely profitable holiday pie this year:<br><br> <ul> <li>Get started now! Although it may seem strange to think about Halloween product sales when the temps are still high in many parts of the country, the fact is that 52% of ecommerce sellers start their holiday sales preparations by or before Halloween. With such a large percentage of the population celebrating Halloween, you can bet that there will be early bird shoppers and you need to have something for them.</li> </ul> <br> <ul> <li>Plan your social media, email marketing, AdWords and other marketing you plan to use for Halloween dropship business sales.

For instance, if you have your own website, or are an eBay or Amazon seller, or selling on any other online venue, you can easily use wholesale dropship products to boost your bottom line and increase profits.<br><br>How does this work? Well, let’s say that you are selling fishing lures and are doing a great business with them. People who love to go fishing and buy your lures are also likely to buy other fishing related products.<br><br>But, instead of stretching your budget or maybe even taking out a loan to buy more and different inventory, you could simply find a wholesale dropship product source and choose correlating products to sell along with the fishing lures.<br><br>In this way, you could use bundling, cross selling or upselling sales techniques to make more sales.<br><br>The success of this plan will largely depend on the wholesale product supplier you choose. If you select one that charges you basically retail prices, there is no way you will make any money since you can’t buy for resale at retail prices and then turn around and resell for retail prices and have any margin for profit at all.<br><br>So, here are some tips for finding a good wholesale product supplier if you want to source supplemental dropship items for your ecommerce business:<br><br> <ul> <li>Be sure it is an established business, preferably a member of the Better Business Bureau. As fantastic as the internet truly is, the sad fact is that there are scammers who may take your money and run. So, check up and make sure the wholesale dropship product source you are thinking of dealing with is a well respected business.</li> </ul> <br> <ul> <li>Be sure that the products supplied by the wholesale product source are high quality. The last thing you want to do is send people inferior, shoddy, poorly made items that are liable to malfunction. Your reputation would be ruined in nothing flat and your ecommerce career would be over due to all the adverse publicity this would get you. It‘s a smart idea to buy one of every product you intend to sell, so that you can see the quality and workmanship for yourself.</li> </ul> <br> <ul> <li>Be sure the wholesale product source really does give you true wholesale prices. As mentioned above, this will be a huge factor in the success or failure of your plan to use wholesale dropship products to supplement your ecommerce sales. Paying too much up front will mean that you cannot hope to make enough of a profit on each sale to be worthwhile.</li> </ul> <br>Using wholesale dropship products will be a boon to both you and your customers, since offering the chance to buy other products they need or want is a win-win situation of all concerned.<br><br>Thi8nk about what products you could offer your customers and then use wholesale dropship products to supplement your ecommerce sales!<br><p>&nbsp;</p><p>Start your own online <a href="http://www.dropshipaccess.com" mce_href="http://www.dropshipaccess.com">dropship</a> business today!<br></p> <img src="http://track.hubspot.com/__ptq.gif?a=41336&k=14&bu=http://blog.dropshipaccess.com/&r=http://blog.dropshipaccess.com/bid/100483/Use-Wholesale-Dropship-Products-to-Supplement-Ecommerce-Sales&bvt=rss">Amanda BrookeSat, 31 Aug 2013 22:28:00 GMTf1397696-738c-4295-afcd-943feb885714:100483http://blog.dropshipaccess.com/bid/100437/5-Mistakes-eBay-Dropship-Sellers-Make-What-NOT-to-Do#Comments05 Mistakes eBay Dropship Sellers Make: What NOT to Dohttp://blog.dropshipaccess.com/bid/100437/5-Mistakes-eBay-Dropship-Sellers-Make-What-NOT-to-Do<br><img src="http://blog.dropshipaccess.com/Portals/41336/images/warningbean.JPG" alt="eBay dropshipper mistakes" class="alignLeft" style="float: left;" border="0">You may have heard someone grousing that there is no way to be successful as a <a href="http://www.dropshipaccess.com/" title="dropship" target="_blank"><strong>dropship</strong></a> seller on eBay.<br><br>This is nonsense.<br><br>There most certainly is a way and in fact, there are many successful eBay dropship sellers who are making a very nice living at it. But, there have been many who tried it and failed and many more, no doubt, who will try it in the future and fail miserably.<br><br>So, what is the difference between these two groups of eBay dropship sellers---the success stories and the failures? What does one group do that the other doesn’t? Are the successful eBay dropshippers privy to a secret that others don’t know about?<br><br>The secret is what the successful ones do and perhaps even more importantly, what they DON’T do!<br><br>The thing about eBay is that you don’t get a lot of room for mistakes, especially when you are first starting out. There is a very narrow margin for error and a few feedbacks will be enough to sink your eBay ship if you flub up right from the begging.<br><br>Here are 5 common mistakes made by eBay dropship sellers who end up being unsuccessful:<br><br>1. They don’t provide good images. Your pictures have to clearly show a shopper what you are selling, so they need to be good enough to enable the person to make an informed buying decision. If you plaster poor quality, blurry or otherwise crummy images on eBay of your products---forget it. You won’t succeed.<br><br>2. They don’t provide good descriptions. Everything mentioned above about images goes for descriptions, too. Your descriptions should tell a viewer everything they need to know about your product. For example, if you are selling shoes and neglect to mention what size they are who do you think is going to buy them?<br><br>3. They don’t answer questions from potential buyers. Let’s face it, despite all of the disruptive change of the last few years and efforts to rid eBay of bad sellers, there are still some to be found on the site. Some are probably not so much bad as just stupid or ignorant. Be that as the case may be, there are a lot of buyers who have been burned by purchasing an item that was not as described. They might need reassurance that the item is as good as you say it is. Answer these messages! Doing so may gain you a valuable repeat customer. Not doing so will almost certainly cost you a sale. <br><br>4. They hold feedback hostage until after the buyer leave feedback. Honestly, this is lame. In the olden days of eBay when sellers could still leave negative feedback for buyers, this practice might have had some purpose. But, those days are gone. Sellers are unable to leave buyers anything except positive feedback. So, holding out on leaving feedback until after the buyer does really makes no sense and it antagonizes a lot of buyers. You catch more flies with honey than vinegar!<br><br>5. They don’t download tracking info. Hopefully you are doing business with a wholesale product source for your dropship items that furnishes tracking numbers. Some dropship eBay sellers simply can’t be bothered to post this info to the site so that the buyer knows their widget is on its way. This is bad business and will cost you repeat business as well as gain negative or neutral feedback. <br><br>Those are 5 <a href="http://www.dropshipaccess.com/education_read.php?quizID=45" title="common mistakes eBay dropship sellers make " target="_blank">common mistakes eBay dropship sellers make </a>that cause them to fail, so avoid them and you can be successful if you do everything else right!<br><p>&nbsp;</p><p>Start your own online <a href="http://www.dropshipaccess.com" mce_href="http://www.dropshipaccess.com">dropship</a> business today!<br></p> <img src="http://track.hubspot.com/__ptq.gif?a=41336&k=14&bu=http://blog.dropshipaccess.com/&r=http://blog.dropshipaccess.com/bid/100437/5-Mistakes-eBay-Dropship-Sellers-Make-What-NOT-to-Do&bvt=rss">Amanda BrookeFri, 30 Aug 2013 01:07:00 GMTf1397696-738c-4295-afcd-943feb885714:100437http://blog.dropshipaccess.com/bid/100395/Amazon-Webstores-A-Profitable-Home-Business-for-Dropshippers#Comments0 Amazon Webstores: A Profitable Home Business for Dropshippershttp://blog.dropshipaccess.com/bid/100395/Amazon-Webstores-A-Profitable-Home-Business-for-Dropshippers<br><img id="img-1377722166100" src="http://blog.dropshipaccess.com/Portals/41336/images/homeoffcie 5.JPG" alt="Amazon Webstores dropshippers" class="alignRight" style="float: right;" border="0">Did you know that Amazon Webstores offers a fast and easy way to have a profitable home business for <a href="http://www.dropshipaccess.com/" title="dropshippers" target="_blank"><strong>dropshippers</strong></a>?<br><br>It’s a fact!<br><br>Amazon is, of course, an absolutely mammoth online marketplace and one that millions of people flow through every single day from all around the world. If it’s traffic you want, it’s traffic you’ll get with an Amazon webstore.<br><br>You might be wondering which would be better if you are just starting out in ecommerce with a home dropship business: Amazon or your own website.<br><br>The truth is that in almost all instances, an ecommerce newbie would be well advised to steer away from starting up their own website and opt instead for selling on a huge venue such as Amazon.

It’s just that simple. <br><br>After you have been in business a while and built up a good, strong repeat customer base and have learned the ropes of marketing, social media, SEO and all the other things that go into having a profitable ecommerce business---you can consider your own website if you feel so inclined.
