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/100919/How-to-Use-Link-Building-to-Grow-Your-Dropship-Home-Business#Comments0How to Use Link Building to Grow Your Dropship Home Businesshttp://blog.dropshipaccess.com/bid/100919/How-to-Use-Link-Building-to-Grow-Your-Dropship-Home-Business<br><img src="http://blog.dropshipaccess.com/Portals/41336/images/chainkey.jpg" alt="link building dropship business" class="alignRight" style="float: right;" border="0">Did you know that you can use link building to grow your ecommerce <strong><a href="http://www.dropshipaccess.com/" title="dropship " target="_blank">dropship </a></strong>home business?<br><br>You can, if you learn the ins and outs of how to of about it successfully.<br><br>Link building can be a great way to boost traffic to your home dropship business ecommerce website and increase sales while you’re at it. 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/100483/Use-Wholesale-Dropship-Products-to-Supplement-Ecommerce-Sales#Comments0Use Wholesale Dropship Products to Supplement Ecommerce Saleshttp://blog.dropshipaccess.com/bid/100483/Use-Wholesale-Dropship-Products-to-Supplement-Ecommerce-Sales<br><img src="http://blog.dropshipaccess.com/Portals/41336/images/bigsale.JPG" alt="wholesale dropship products" class="alignLeft" style="float: left;" border="0">Did you know that you can use wholesale<a href="http://www.dropshipaccess.com/" title=" dropship" target="_blank"><strong> dropship</strong></a> products to supplement ecommerce sales?<br><br>You can! 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/98734/Myth-1-You-Can-t-Make-Money-Drop-Shipping#Comments0Myth #1: You Can’t Make Money Drop Shippinghttp://blog.dropshipaccess.com/bid/98734/Myth-1-You-Can-t-Make-Money-Drop-Shipping<br><p style="margin-left: 1in; margin-right: 1in; margin-bottom: 0in; border-top: none; border-bottom: 1px solid #000000; border-left: none; border-right: none; padding-top: 0in; padding-bottom: 0.01in; padding-left: 0in; padding-right: 0in;"><span style="font-family: Cambria,serif;"><span style="font-size: medium;"><b>Common Myths about Drop Shipping</b></span></span></p> <p style="margin-left: 1in; margin-right: 1in; margin-top: 0.19in; margin-bottom: 0.14in; line-height: 100%;"><span style="font-family: Cambria,serif;"><span style="font-size: small;">Drop shipping is a relatively new practice. Although it is gaining in popularity, there are still many people who have never heard of drop shipping. Unfortunately, with unfamiliarity come uncertainness, confusion, and at least a handful of myths. </span></span></p> <p style="margin-left: 1in; margin-right: 1in; margin-top: 0.19in; margin-bottom: 0.14in; line-height: 100%;"><span style="font-family: Cambria,serif;"><span style="font-size: small;"><b>Myth #1: You Can’t Make Money Drop Shipping</b></span></span></p> <p style="margin-left: 1in; margin-right: 1in; margin-bottom: 0.14in; line-height: 100%;"><span style="font-family: Cambria,serif;"><span style="font-size: small;">Sure some products have a lower profit margin than others, but drop shipping does work. In fact, many major retailers and small businesses alike use drop shipping for their product sourcing needs. Drop shipping offers retailers the ability to choose from a wide variety of products from well-known manufacturers. How else could a retailer find such a diverse selection of high-quality goods to sell? In short, they probably could not by themselves. Manufacturers generally work with groups that can meet specific volume requirements, which would be nearly impossible for an individual to adhere to. Drop shipping providers are able to meet requirements, because of the sheer volume of orders placed by members. This arrangement works well for everyone involved. Providers pass on great deals to their members who in turn earn nice profits. </span></span></p> <p style="margin-left: 1in; margin-right: 1in; margin-bottom: 0.14in; line-height: 100%;"><span style="font-family: Cambria,serif;"><span style="font-size: small;">Drop shipping actually saves money in some areas: building a stock of inventory, warehousing the inventory, packaging, and shipping orders. Why? All of these practices become obsolete with drop shipping. This superior type of product sourcing takes care of several aspects of business, which in turn frees up both time and money. </span></span></p> <img src="http://blog.dropshipaccess.com/Portals/41336/images/free2.jpg" alt="Dropship Myths - You can't make money" border="0"><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/98734/Myth-1-You-Can-t-Make-Money-Drop-Shipping&bvt=rss">Lisa MiracleFri, 12 Jul 2013 03:15:00 GMTf1397696-738c-4295-afcd-943feb885714:98734http://blog.dropshipaccess.com/bid/97606/How-to-Use-Email-Marketing-to-Grow-Your-Home-Dropship-Business#Comments0How to Use Email Marketing to Grow Your Home Dropship Businesshttp://blog.dropshipaccess.com/bid/97606/How-to-Use-Email-Marketing-to-Grow-Your-Home-Dropship-Business<br><img src="http://blog.dropshipaccess.com/Portals/41336/images/email2-resized-600.jpg" alt="dropship email marketing" class="alignCenter" style="display: block; margin-left: auto; margin-right: auto;" border="0"><br>If you want to grow your home <a href="http://www.dropshipaccess.com/" title="dropship " target="_blank">dropship </a>business, one effective technique you can use is email marketing!<br><br>Email marketing is extremely effective as far as a marketing strategy and it can be quite cost effective, as well. Many ecommerce business people have discovered the power of email marketing and used it to make more sales and boost their bottom lines.<br><br>According to a recent study conducted by Silverpop about email marketing, there are benchmarks by which you can gauge all email marketing. Here are some interesting stats and info from this study:<br><br> <ul> <li>Emails pertaining to consumer products had the highest scores for open rates---scoring an impressive median 25.4%.</li> </ul> <br> <ul> <li>When it comes to click through rates, consumer product emails were way up there near the top again.</li> </ul> <br> <ul> <li>Top performing categories such as consumer products have the lowest email bounce rates.</li> </ul> <br> <ul> <li>Looking at unsubscribe rates, consumer products fared very well again, with a mere 0.04%.</li> </ul> <br>So, with your business in dropshipping consumer products of some kind, you’re basically a shoo-in for being successful with email marketing providing you pay attention to the details. <br><br>Dollar for dollar, email marketing is widely considered to provide the best ROI (Return On Investment) than any other form of marketing.

Much, much easier and faster than you could try to do it one email addy at a time.</li> </ul> <br> <ul> <li>Be sure to stay within the guidelines of CAN-SPAM laws. Read the Bureau of Consumer Protection’s CAN-SPAM Act Compliance Guide if you are unclear about what you can and cannot do regarding marketing emails.</li> </ul> <br> <ul> <li>You should always design your marketing emails to be mobile device friendly. With more and more consumers accessing the internet with mobile devices, you need to be sure that your emails are mobile accessible.</li> </ul> <br> <ul> <li>Building your opt-in email subscription list should be an ongoing, high priority type of thing. You should actively solicit subscriptions, but don’t do it before a shopper completes the checkout process. Asking for too much info too soon, such as an email address, could cost you a sale.</li> </ul> <br> <ul> <li>Have a catchy subject line that will motivate recipients to open and read your marketing emails.

As usual, we turn to that handy free resource, Wikipedia:<br><br>“A blog (a portmanteau of the term web log) is a discussion or informational site published on the World Wide Web and consisting of discrete entries ("posts") typically displayed in reverse chronological order (the most recent post appears first). Until 2009 blogs were usually the work of a single individual, occasionally of a small group, and often were themed on a single subject. More recently "multi-author blogs" (MABs) have developed, with posts written by large numbers of authors and professionally edited. MABs from newspapers, other media outlets, universities, think tanks, interest groups and similar institutions account for an increasing quantity of blog traffic. The rise of Twitter and other "microblogging" systems helps integrate MABs and single-author blogs into societal newstreams. Blog can also be used as a verb, meaning to maintain or add content to a blog.”<br><br>As you can see, many individuals and businesses of all types have jumped on the blog bandwagon, and you should, too!<br><br>Here are some steps to help you set up and maintain a good dropship blog that will help get traffic to your website or listings:<br><br> <ul> <li>You don’t have to sink a small fortune into a fancy website for a dropship blog. If you have your own website, you can incorporate your blog into it and work from there. If you use a marketplace such as Amazon or eBay, you can use a free platform such as WordPress for your blogging efforts. WordPress is one of the most popular. It’s user friendly, very customizable and won’t cost you a penny. In fact, you can use WordPress even if you have your own website and simply link to it.</li> </ul> <br> <ul> <li>Put some time and effort into your blog posts so that they offer something of value to readers. While the whole idea of having a blog is to grow your dropship business and make more sales, this shouldn’t be the be-all and end-all of your blog. You want to avoid being too salesy or too much hype about your products or business. Google doesn’t like it and neither do readers. A good rule of thumb is that only about one in five of your posts should be specifically about your product or services.&nbsp; Aim for content that is relevant, informative or entertaining, or otherwise valuable to viewers.</li> </ul> <br> <ul> <li>Post to your blog regularly. Some e-tail merchants only post an occasional blog article, and this doesn’t work. If you want to use your dropship blog for marketing, be consistent and post fresh content on a frequent, regular basis.

What can you do that will help drive traffic and increase sales?<br><br> <h3><strong>How to Increase Your Bottom Line</strong></h3> <br>There are a lot of things you can do to help increase online dropship sales.<br><br>Let’s start with those of you who have your own websites as opposed to using eBay or Amazon for your marketplace. Since those internet commerce mammoths have an enormous amount of traffic flowing through their sites every day, if you’re selling on there you won’t have to work as hard to get traffic since these sites are doing a lot of that for you.<br><br>Here are some basics that should stand you in good stead and help increase dropship sales:<br><br> <ul> <li>Since the advent of the Google Panda and Penguin updates, Google wants high quality, relevant content. This means that you can’t outsource some person to write scads of fractured English and weirdly phrased content for peanuts anymore as long as it’s stuffed with keywords. Google now actively frowns on this practice (thank goodness) so the days of “article farming” to boost rankings in SERPs is a thing of the past. Just provide fresh, relevant, high quality content and you’ll get higher search rankings; which will mean more traffic and consequently---more sales.</li> </ul> <br> <ul> <li>Using great marketing techniques will work wonders for your online dropship business! The beautiful thing about marketing for ecommerce is that much--or even all--of it, depending on your personal capabilities, can be done by you and not cost a penny! Email marketing, social media marketing…these are fabulous ways to increase traffic and sales!</li> </ul> <br> <ul> <li>Think global! When your dropship sales are online, the whole world is your oyster! Unlike traditional brick and mortar stores, you aren’t limited to mostly local traffic, but may have shoppers from all corners of the world. Make sure that your dropship product source is set up to ship globally, of course.</li> </ul> <br> <ul> <li>Make sure your dropship site is mobile friendly. This can’t be stressed enough! With more and more Road Warriors doing their shopping on mobile devices, it’s a case of snooze and you lose. So, if your site isn’t mobile accessible---get busy and get it up to speed before the big holiday shopping rush begins.</li> </ul> <br> <ul> <li>If you don’t have a Facebook page for your dropship business…do it now! Once you get your page looking good, be sure to post to it regularly and include such things as promotions, contests, steals and deals. You should also install a Like widget on your dropship site so that shoppers can share with their social circle on Facebook. You might be surprised how many sales are made this way, since it’s a proven fact that people tend to buy under the influence of others.</li> </ul> <br> <ul> <li>Even if you have your own dropship website, it wouldn’t hurt and would almost definitely help to run some listings on eBay and/or Amazon. Bear in mind that these two giants of online marketplaces have a huge amount of traffic every day!</li> </ul> <br> <ul> <li>Perform routine maintenance on your dropship site to make sure everything is running smoothly. The better and speedier your site, the less shopping cart abandonment you’ll have, which translates to more sales.</li> </ul> <br>Use these tips to help increase online dropship sales!<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/90979/7-Tips-to-Increase-Online-Dropship-Sales&bvt=rss">J.

Wikipedia has this to say in definition of email marketing:<br><br>“Email marketing is directly marketing a commercial message to a group of people using email. In its broadest sense, every email sent to a potential or current customer could be considered email marketing. It usually involves using email to send ads, request business, or solicit sales or donations, and is meant to build loyalty, trust, or brand awareness. Email marketing can be done to either cold lists or current customer database. Broadly, the term is usually used to refer to:<br><br></p> <ul> <li>Sending email messages with the purpose of enhancing the relationship of a merchant with its current or previous customers, to encourage customer loyalty and repeat business,</li> <li>Sending email messages with the purpose of acquiring new customers or convincing current customers to purchase something immediately,</li> <li>Adding advertisements to email messages sent by other companies to their customers</li> </ul> <p><br>Researchers estimate that United States firms alone spent US $1.51 billion on email marketing in 2011 and will grow to $2.468 billion by 2016.”</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p><span style="color: #339966;">Tips for Using Email Marketing</span></p> <p>Here are some tips to help you use email marketing to promote your dropship business:</p> <ul> <li> <p>Give people a good reason to subscribe to your opt-in email list. You might offer free shipping on their next purchase, a substantial discount on products or shipping, a free ebook or something along that line. The idea is to motivate customers and visitors to your dropshipping business so that they will choose to subscribe and receive your emails.</p> </li> </ul> <ul> <li> <p>Make it easy for people to subscribe to your opt-in email list. Keep the form very simple! Sure, you might like to know such things as birthdays and addresses---but keep your eye on the ball and go for that email addy first and foremost. If you get someone signed up to receive your emails, there will be time to harvest other data later.</p> </li> </ul> <ul> <li> <p>Make sure that your emails suit your brand and that the layout is memorable. You want something that will be instantly identifiable as coming from you so that your subscribers don’t accidentally send your email to the trash. Customize your emails so that they match your logo and colors on your website.</p> </li> </ul> <ul> <li> <p>Internet readers don’t actually read….they scan. So, if you want your emails to be opened and the recipients to take the desired action, which is visit your site; make those marketing emails scannable!</p> </li> </ul> <br> <ul> <li>Keep your primary message above the fold. This is an old newspaper term that simply means keeping your main message on the top half of the page where readers can see it right away and get an idea of what it contains.</li> </ul> <br> <ul> <li>All of your marketing emails should be mobile friendly. More and more people are using mobile devices to surf the net, read emails, visit social sites, etc. So, to ensure a high open rate, make your emails easily accessible by mobile devices.</li> </ul> <p><br>Use these email marketing tips to generate sales and income for your dropship internet business!</p> <p><span class="hs-cta-wrapper" id="hs-cta-wrapper-5d914ef1-8804-4875-b047-7890c8bb1263"> <span class="hs-cta-node hs-cta-5d914ef1-8804-4875-b047-7890c8bb1263" id="hs-cta-5d914ef1-8804-4875-b047-7890c8bb1263"> <a href="http://cta-redirect.hubspot.com/cta/redirect/41336/5d914ef1-8804-4875-b047-7890c8bb1263" \=""><img class="hs-cta-img" id="hs-cta-img-5d914ef1-8804-4875-b047-7890c8bb1263" style="border-width:0px;" src="http://no-cache.hubspot.com/cta/default/41336/5d914ef1-8804-4875-b047-7890c8bb1263.png"></a> </span> <script type="text/javascript"> (function(){ var s='hubspotutk',r,c=((r=new RegExp('(^|; )'+s+'=([^;]*)').exec(document.cookie))?r[2]:''),w=window;w[s]=w[s]||c, hsjs=document.createElement("script"),el=document.getElementById("hs-cta-5d914ef1-8804-4875-b047-7890c8bb1263"); hsjs.type = "text/javascript";hsjs.async = true; hsjs.src = "//cta-service-cms2.hubspot.com/cs/loader.js?pg=5d914ef1-8804-4875-b047-7890c8bb1263&pid=41336&hsutk=" + encodeURIComponent(c); (document.getElementsByTagName("head")[0]||document.getElementsByTagName("body")[0]).appendChild(hsjs); try{el.style.visibility="hidden";}catch(err){} setTimeout(function() {try{el.style.visibility="visible";}catch(err){}}, 2500); })(); </script> </span></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/90965/Email-Marketing-Tips-for-Your-Dropship-Internet-Business&bvt=rss">Amanda BrookeSat, 27 Oct 2012 19:54:00 GMTf1397696-738c-4295-afcd-943feb885714:90965http://blog.dropshipaccess.com/bid/77504/Increase-DropShip-Sales-with-Viral-Marketing#Comments0Increase DropShip Sales with Viral Marketing http://blog.dropshipaccess.com/bid/77504/Increase-DropShip-Sales-with-Viral-Marketing<br><p>Have you heard about viral marketing?</p> <p>When used effectively, viral marketing increases your drop ship sales exponentially!

For example, if you dropship camping products and a shopper on your website has added a tent to his/her shopping cart; offering other camping items is a smart move. You might cross sell sleeping bags, camping cookware, lanterns, or any number of other items that are commonly used on camping trips. <br /><br />This is a win-win situation for both your dropship business and the customer. It&rsquo;s great for you, obviously, because you will make more money. But, it&rsquo;s helpful for the customer as well if those other things are needed because it will save them time and money in most cases to go ahead and buy everything they need from one seller. When you use cross selling to boost sales, it&rsquo;s a good idea to offer a shipping discount or even free shipping if the purchase totals X amount of dollars. Offering free or greatly discounted shipping is often a strong motivator for a shopper to buy additional items from your dropship website.<br /><br />Another cross selling techniques is more or less the same but just a little different: bundling. Bundling is cross selling, in a sense, but instead of showing a shopper additional relevant products, you offer a bundle of similar, related products at a reduced price compared to buying each one separately. For instance, if a shopper has a tent in the shopping cart, then show a bundle with the same tent plus other, relevant products such as:<br /><br /> <ul> <li>Camp stoves</li> </ul> <ul> <li>Camp tables</li> </ul> <ul> <li>Folding camp chairs</li> </ul> <ul> <li>Sleeping bags</li> </ul> <ul> <li>Lanterns</li> </ul> <ul> <li>Flashlights</li> </ul> <ul> <li>Inflatable mattresses</li> </ul> <ul> <li>And more</li> </ul> <br />The bundled price should allow plenty of room for your profits while still offering the customer a substantial savings as opposed to buying each item separately. <br /><br />Working smarter instead of harder will mean more dropship sales and profits with less work and effort!<br /><br />If you liked this article, you may also like this one: <p class="title"><a href="http://blog.dropshipaccess.com/bid/48340/Use-Holiday-Specific-SEO-to-Maximize-Dropship-Sales" title="Use Holiday Specific SEO to Maximize Dropship Sales" target="_blank"><strong>Use Holiday Specific SEO to Maximize Dropship Sales</strong></a></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/74897/Work-Smarter-Not-Harder-Cross-Selling-for-Your-Dropship-Business&bvt=rss">Amanda BrookeSun, 09 Oct 2011 18:12:00 GMTf1397696-738c-4295-afcd-943feb885714:74897http://blog.dropshipaccess.com/bid/73453/DropShip-Video-Detailing-our-eRetail-Website-Integration-Service#Comments0DropShip Video Detailing our eRetail Website Integration Service http://blog.dropshipaccess.com/bid/73453/DropShip-Video-Detailing-our-eRetail-Website-Integration-Service<br><p>As a <a href="http://www.dropshipaccess.com" title="DropShip" target="_blank">DropShip</a> Access enterprise customer, you&rsquo;ll have exclusive access to our <a href="http://www.dropshipaccess.com/drop_ship_store.php" title="website integration service" target="_blank">website integration service</a>.

Some websites are all about Daily Deals and nothing else. Living Social, for example, is one such site that is relatively new but has built up a massive base of subscribers in a very short period of time. The same applies to Groupon. Cool Savings is using Daily Deals and many local newspapers as well. Walmart has jumped on the Daily Deals band wagon, too. <br /><br /><a href="http://blog.dropshipaccess.com/dropship-selling-on-ebay-a-tale-of-two-sellers-copy/" title="Click Here For a FREE eBay E-Book That Will Have You Selling like a Pro!" target="_blank"><strong>Click Here For a FREE eBay E-Book That Will Have You Selling like a Pro!</strong></a></p> <p>Here are some stats from <a href="http://www.emarketer.com/Article.aspx?R=1008454" title="emarketer" target="_blank">emarketer</a> about Daily Deals:</p> <ul> <li>Users of both sites are more educated than Internet users in general.</li> <li>57 percent of Groupon users, and 51 percent of LivingSocial users, are in the prime homeowner age groups of 35 to 64.</li> <li>Nearly two-thirds of visitors to both sites are female.</li> <li>Daily deal users tend to skew toward affluent. A separate study, by Nielsen, found visitors to LivingSocial 49 percent more likely than the average U.S. Internet user to earn $150,000 or more, while Groupon's users were 30 percent more likely.</li> </ul> A chart from <a href="http://www.foreseeresults.com/" title="Foresee" target="_blank">Foresee</a> that breaks things down:<br /> <p><img src="http://blog.dropshipaccess.com/Portals/41336/images/daily-deals-new-business-resized-600.jpg" border="0" alt="dropship ecommerce daily deals chart" class="alignLeft" style="float: left;" /><br />Why are Daily Deals so popular? In a nutshell, these promotions appeal to those who love to get in on special deals and save money. In these days of continuing high unemployment, outrageous fuel prices and escalating costs of everything else---that group of people is huge!<br /><br />So, how could you incorporate Daily Deals into your dropship sales?</p> <p>Here are a couple of tips to help you get started:<br /><br /></p> <ul> <li>Bundled Deals: Bundled deals are hot! A bundled deal is where you offer an accessory or coordinating product as a go-with for another product at a cheaper price than buying each item as a stand alone purchase. For example, if your niche is electronics and you are dropship selling DVD players, you might offer a DVD player along with a DVD cleaner or cleaning kit.</li> </ul> <p>&nbsp;</p> <ul> <li>Loss Leaders: Daily Deals are great loss leaders! A loss leader is a product that you sell at a rock bottom price for the purpose of attracting traffic to your dropship website or eBay dropship products. You might not make any profit on this item, so it doesn&rsquo;t need to be anything pricey like a Plasma TV, but the whole idea of a loss leader is that you go into it knowing you won&rsquo;t male a lot of money on it; just hoping it will drive traffic and then visitors will go on to buy other of your items.</li> </ul> <p><br />If you are only dropship selling one product, you would probably need to offer more of a selection of products in order to run Daily Deals. It would be best to stick to items within your niche but isn&rsquo;t strictly necessary.<br /><br />Try using Daily Deals to drive traffic to your ecommerce dropship website and boost sales! <br /><br />If you liked this article, you may also like this one:</p> <p class="title"><a href="http://blog.dropshipaccess.com/bid/32594/Dropship-Tips-Improve-Your-Google-Ranking-in-5-Easy-Steps" title="Dropship Tips: Improve Your Google Ranking in 5 Easy Steps" target="_blank"><strong>Dropship Tips: Improve Your Google Ranking in 5 Easy Steps</strong></a></p> <p><br /><br /><br /><br /><br /></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/72545/Ecommerce-Dropship-Tips-Use-Daily-Deals-to-Boost-Sales&bvt=rss">Amanda BrookeWed, 14 Sep 2011 16:16:00 GMTf1397696-738c-4295-afcd-943feb885714:72545http://blog.dropshipaccess.com/bid/72445/Ecommerce-Dropship-Tips-Get-Your-Mojo-Working-for-Holiday-Sales#Comments0Ecommerce Dropship Tips: Get Your Mojo Working for Holiday Sales!http://blog.dropshipaccess.com/bid/72445/Ecommerce-Dropship-Tips-Get-Your-Mojo-Working-for-Holiday-Sales<br><img src="http://blog.dropshipaccess.com/Portals/41336/images/magician.JPG" border="0" alt="ecommerce dropship mojo" class="alignLeft" style="float: left;" />Have you stopped to think that the fall and winter holidays are rapidly approaching and that you need to get some mojo in the works in order for your <a href="http://www.dropshipaccess.com/" title="dropship" target="_blank"><strong>dropship</strong></a> or other ecommerce business to reap full advantage of all that increased traffic and shoppers online ready to spend, spend, spend?<br /><br />Although it may still be warm weather where you live, the fact is that Halloween, Thanksgiving, Christmas, Kwanzaa, Hanukkah, New Years, and Valentine&rsquo;s Day are fast approaching. In fact, internet research shows that some shoppers begin their holiday shopping as early as September, so there is no time to lose if you wan to get your share of all these extra opportunities to sell your dropship products.<br /><br /><a href="http://blog.dropshipaccess.com/whitepaper/drop-shipping-ebook/" title="Click Here For a FREE Dropshipping E-Book!" target="_blank"><strong>Click Here For a FREE Dropshipping E-Book!</strong></a><br /><br />If you aren&rsquo;t focusing on one particular niche but sell a variety of dropship products, you can get online and so a little sleuthing to see what the hottest selling items and holiday gift trends are forecast for this season. &nbsp;<br /><br />Check out the eBay Pulse for ideas in assorted categories or use the Google AdWord Tool to find out what items are racking up lots and lots of global searches. For example, if you are thinking of dropship jewelry sales this year, you might check with the Google tool to see how many people are online searching for a specific piece of jewelry such as gold earrings or pearl necklaces and so on.<br /><br />If you discover that a product you were considering selling during the upcoming holiday shopping season isn&rsquo;t getting many searches---move on and find something more promising.

Online shoppers are notoriously impatient with extremely short fuses. The majority of them want to get in, conduct their business and get out as quickly as possible. If you feel that you must have a Splash Screen, at least include a link to skip it.</li> </ul> <br /> <ul> <li>Too much text---Fresh, relevant content on your website is exceedingly important because the search engines are always looking for exactly that and providing it will help boost your rank in the search results. But, don&rsquo;t over do it. Too much text and you will lose your viewer&rsquo;s attention and when that happens, it&rsquo;s pretty much over. Do have relevant, updated content but keep it concise and to the point.</li> </ul> <br /> <ul> <li>Off the wall colors---Pretty and unusual colors are nice, but not on your dropship website. If you choose some off the wall color for your background or font, there is a good possibility that some people won&rsquo;t even have that color available on their computer and if that happens&hellip;who knows what colors they&rsquo;ll see? Stick with web safe colors.</li> </ul> <br /> <ul> <li>No browser compatibility---Different people use different browsers. It isn&rsquo;t easy to be compatible with all of them, but make an effort to at least have cross compatibility with the major and most used browsers. Otherwise, you will lose a lot of potential customers!</li> </ul> <br />Use these tips to avoid making common website mistakes on your ecommerce dropship website.<br /><br />If you liked this article, you may also like this one: <p class="title"><a href="http://blog.dropshipaccess.com/bid/29641/What-NOT-to-Do-in-Your-Business-Blog-Common-Mistakes-to-Avoid" title="What NOT to Do in Your Business Blog: Common Mistakes to Avoid" target="_blank"><strong>What NOT to Do in Your Business Blog: Common Mistakes to Avoid</strong></a></p> <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/70939/Ecommerce-Dropship-Tips-Website-Mistakes-to-Avoid&bvt=rss">Hope WhitleyThu, 25 Aug 2011 16:51:00 GMTf1397696-738c-4295-afcd-943feb885714:70939http://blog.dropshipaccess.com/bid/70516/Ecommerce-Dropship-Tips-Improve-Delivery-of-Marketing-Emails#Comments0Ecommerce Dropship Tips: Improve Delivery of Marketing Emailshttp://blog.dropshipaccess.com/bid/70516/Ecommerce-Dropship-Tips-Improve-Delivery-of-Marketing-Emails<br><img src="http://blog.dropshipaccess.com/Portals/41336/images/newspaper.jpg" border="0" alt="emial marketimg ecommerce dropship" class="alignLeft" style="float: left;" />Email marketing is a great way to build your <a href="http://www.dropshipaccess.com/" title="dropship" target="_blank"><strong>dropship</strong></a> or other ecommerce business and it will help your efforts to improve your delivery success.<br /><br />Deliverability is a term that crops up frequently in reference to email marketing. <br /><br /><strong>What is Deliverability?</strong><br /><br />Deliverability simply means the ability of any email you send to actually be delivered to the recipient. You can invest quite a lot of time, thought and possibly even money if you hire someone to write your marketing emails&nbsp; into coming up with a killer piece of email copy that will hopefully convert to increased traffic and sales for your dropship business&hellip;..but if this piece of marketing genius never makes it to the intended target&rsquo;s inbox, it&rsquo;s a total flop.<br /><br />Here are a few tips to help you improve the deliverability of your marketing emails:<br /><br /> <ul> <li>Use the Reputation Triplet. This is the combination of three things that make up your reputation within the realm of email marketing. These three components are:</li> </ul> <br /><ol> <li>Content</li> <li>Email address</li> <li>IP address</li> </ol><br />In order to avoid having your marketing emails dumped straight into spam folders, these three vital components need to be spotless. <br /><br /> <ul> <li>The SPF, or Sender Policy Framework, is how an IP address is authenticated. This is accomplished through a DNS service. A lot of corporate domains authenticate IP addresses in an effort to protect themselves from spy ware and viruses, and many email services won&rsquo;t accept email from certain domains.</li> </ul> <br /> <ul> <li>Use a dedicated domain for sending marketing emails. Using a shared domain is inadvisable.</li> </ul> <br /> <ul> <li>Your content needs to be of high quality, nothing that the spam filters will interpret as gibberish. Although the word &ldquo;free&rdquo; is very powerful in marketing, it is also a word that triggers the spam filters of many email services. So try to avoid using it in the title line if possible. The good news is that if you build up your Reputation Triplet, your emails may have enough instant credibility to clear this hurdle even if you do use this buzz word.</li> </ul> <br />Deliverability is key to the success of email marketing campaigns for your ecommerce dropship home business.<br /><br />If you liked this article, you may also like this one: <p class="title"><a href="http://blog.dropshipaccess.com/bid/34050/Dropship-Tips-Working-at-Home-Habits-of-Highly-Effective-People" title="Dropship Tips: Working at Home---Habits of Highly Effective People" target="_blank"><strong>Dropship Tips: Working at Home---Habits of Highly Effective People</strong></a></p> <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/70516/Ecommerce-Dropship-Tips-Improve-Delivery-of-Marketing-Emails&bvt=rss">Hope WhitleySat, 20 Aug 2011 16:00:00 GMTf1397696-738c-4295-afcd-943feb885714:70516http://blog.dropshipaccess.com/bid/68565/Ecommerce-Dropship-Tips-More-Ways-to-Increase-Sales#Comments5Ecommerce Dropship Tips: More Ways to Increase Saleshttp://blog.dropshipaccess.com/bid/68565/Ecommerce-Dropship-Tips-More-Ways-to-Increase-Sales<br><img src="http://blog.dropshipaccess.com/Portals/41336/images/Daryl-money-womanrev-resized-600.jpg" border="0" alt="increase dropship ecommerce home business sales" class="alignLeft" style="float: left;" />Anyone with a <a href="http://www.dropshipaccess.com/" title="dropship" target="_blank"><strong>dropship</strong></a> or other sort of ecommerce business is probably always on the lookout for ways to increase sales. <br /><br />After all, sales mean money and money is what it&rsquo;s all about in a home dropship business!

SEO, or Search Engine Optimization, is what keeps traffic coming to your site and as you are surely aware; traffic is the lifeblood of your business.<br /><br /><a href="http://blog.dropshipaccess.com/what-is-seo/" title="Click Here For a FREE SEO Whitepaper Full of Valuable Information!" target="_blank"><strong>Click Here For a FREE SEO Whitepaper Full of Valuable Information!</strong></a><br /><br />Here are 5 handy SEO tips for your dropship sales business:<br /><br />I. Your main navigation bar should always contain keyword rich text. Ditto for your product descriptions and don&rsquo;t forget your images, either. Focus on keywords and use them wherever they will help the search engines find your site.<br /><br />II. To ensure that your site is not only SEO but user friendly, as well, use breadcrumb navigation for all of your inner pages, linking back to your main web page. This keeps shoppers from getting confused about where they are or where they are going and acts as a very helpful SEO tool and secondary navigation.<br /><br />III. Keep descriptions of your web pages relevant and keyword rich. Always be sure that your web page description follows through on the promise. In other words, if someone clicks on your web page link in Google search results that is describing pet beds, make sure that they land on a page about pet beds instead of something else. This is fairly common and very annoying. In fact, it&rsquo;s probably a big reason for a poor conversion rate. Bear in mind that shoppers are in a hurry or at least aren&rsquo;t usually inclined to waste time searching for something that should have been found with a click. <br /><br />IV. Use Google friendly URL structures. That is, use text within your URLs that Google can easily find and understand. For example, separate the words in your URL text with hyphens.<br /><br />V. Your headers are critical to SEO! Each page heading should use SEO best practices to make it easier for search bots to discover. Search engines assign quite a bit of importance to headings, so make yours work for you.<br /><br />These simple SEO tips can help build your online dropship business.<br /><br />If you enjoyed this article, you may also find this one useful: Dropship News: <a href="http://blog.dropshipaccess.com/bid/33357/Dropship-News-Google-Makes-Changes-That-Affect-Long-Tail-Traffic" title="Google Makes Changes That Affect Long Tail Traffic!" target="_blank"><strong>Google Makes Changes That Affect Long Tail Traffic!</strong></a><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/67561/Ecommerce-Dropship-Sales-5-Handy-SEO-Tips-Tricks&bvt=rss">Greg ScottSat, 23 Jul 2011 17:11:00 GMTf1397696-738c-4295-afcd-943feb885714:67561http://blog.dropshipaccess.com/bid/67560/Ecommerce-Dropship-Tips-How-to-Lessen-Shopping-Cart-Abandonment#Comments0Ecommerce Dropship Tips: How to Lessen Shopping Cart Abandonmenthttp://blog.dropshipaccess.com/bid/67560/Ecommerce-Dropship-Tips-How-to-Lessen-Shopping-Cart-Abandonment<br><img src="http://blog.dropshipaccess.com/Portals/41336/images/shopping cart.JPG" border="0" alt="lessen dropship shopping cart abandonment" class="alignLeft" style="float: left;" />Shopping cart abandonment is a big hole in your ecommerce sales bucket for online <a href="http://www.dropshipaccess.com/" title="dropship" target="_blank"><strong>dropship</strong></a> sales in a home business.<br /><br />If you are doing analytics of your conversion rate, you have probably already discovered that many people back out after adding something to their shopping carts and leave without completing the checkout process. This not only hurts your bottom line, but it also hurts your ranking with Google and the other major search engines since your conversion rate will influence your standing in the SERPs, or Search Engine Ranking Pages. The higher your conversion rate, the higher your ranking will be provided you&rsquo;re doing everything else right.<br /><br /><a href="http://blog.dropshipaccess.com/do-you-want-to-achieve-personal--financial-freedo-copy/" title="Click Here For a FREE Home Business E-Book!" target="_blank"><strong>Click Here For a FREE Home Business E-Book!</strong></a><br /><br />So, it is critical to try and minimize your losses from abandoned shopping carts.<br /><br />Here are a few simple steps that should help you cut down on this very common problem:<br /><br /> <ul> <li>Never require shoppers to register with your dropship website before completing checkout. Naturally, you will need to get a billing and shipping address, but leave it at that until the purchase has been made and duly paid for. Trying to gouge too much too soon from consumers will often cause them to go away right then and there.</li> </ul> <br /> <ul> <li>Let people know that yours is a secure website and it is safe to divulge their personal and financial information. This is a very common concern with many online shoppers and really---who could blame them? Prominently display your security seals and Better Business Bureau emblems, too, if applicable. Reassuring shoppers that your dropship sales site is safe and secure will go a long way toward minimizing shopping cart abandonment.</li> </ul> <br /> <ul> <li>Keep the entire checkout process as streamlined and user friendly as possible. Don&rsquo;t force shoppers to clear one confusing hurdle after another to buy from you. Do show a progress bar at the top of each section of checkout, showing people exactly where they are in the process and how many more steps they need to take to complete a purchase.</li> </ul> <br />These simple tips will help to minimize abandoned shopping carts and boost profits for your dropship home business.<br /><br />If you liked this article, you may also like this one: <p class="title"><a href="http://blog.dropshipaccess.com/bid/33260/Music-is-Always-a-Profitable-Niche-for-Dropshipping" title="Music is Always a Profitable Niche for Dropshipping!" target="_blank"><strong>Music is Always a Profitable Niche for Dropshipping!</strong></a></p> <br id="tinymce" class="mceContentBody " /><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/67560/Ecommerce-Dropship-Tips-How-to-Lessen-Shopping-Cart-Abandonment&bvt=rss">Amanda BrookeSat, 23 Jul 2011 16:08:00 GMTf1397696-738c-4295-afcd-943feb885714:67560http://blog.dropshipaccess.com/bid/66632/Ecommerce-Dropship-Tips-3-Simple-Ways-to-Increase-Online-Sales#Comments1Ecommerce Dropship Tips: 3 Simple Ways to Increase Online Saleshttp://blog.dropshipaccess.com/bid/66632/Ecommerce-Dropship-Tips-3-Simple-Ways-to-Increase-Online-Sales<br><img src="http://blog.dropshipaccess.com/Portals/41336/images/moneyhappy.JPG" border="0" alt="increase dropship profits" class="alignLeft" style="float: left;" />If you have a <a href="http://www.dropshipaccess.com/" title="dropship" target="_blank"><strong>dropship</strong></a> or other ecommerce business, you are probably always receptive for ways to increase online sales!<br /><br />After all, sales mean profits and isn&rsquo;t that what it&rsquo;s all about? You may have heard that the Hokey Pokey is what it&rsquo;s all about and it may be in some areas; but not for ecommerce dropship sales. <br /><br /><a href="http://blog.dropshipaccess.com/2-ecommerce-marketing-strategies-to-grow-your-business/" title="Click Here For a FREE Ecommerce Marketing Strategies E-Book!" target="_blank"><strong>Click Here For a FREE Ecommerce Marketing Strategies E-Book!</strong></a><br /><br />The bottom line for online sales really is your bottom line, or your profit after all operating expenses have been deducted. The more sales you make, the more profit you make. <br /><br />So, let&rsquo;s look at 3 ways to increase your sales and boost your profits:<br /><br />1. Your Home Page and Landing Pages are crucial! Make sure that they follow through on your promise. In other words, if a visitor clicked on your link about salt water aquariums, then follow through with that instead of showing a page about something else entirely. This frustrates and annoys many visitors and they&rsquo;re liable to hit the back button rather than try to ferret out where you&rsquo;ve cleverly hidden what they came to your site to find.<br /><br />2. Navigation is critical to online sales! Make sure that all of your links are functioning properly and that your site is easy to search and well laid out. Always include a Search box! Websites that don&rsquo;t allow a visitor to search for what they want are shooting themselves in the foot because this is another situation that will cause a potential customer to leave. Allow for misspellings, too, as well as variations of the word or phrase the visitor has entered into the Search box.<br /><br />3. Your checkout process will make or break your business! Keep it fast and simple. You want to keep your shopper focused on completing a purchase. Create a sales &ldquo;funnel&rdquo; that will direct the shopper through each step of the buying process. Avoid asking for too much info! Yes, you&rsquo;d like to get them opted in to your email subscription list, but first things first. The first and foremost thing is to make that sale. Anything else is just gravy.<br /><br />These three simple ways to increase online dropship sales can help you have a thriving, successful business with plenty of profit!<br /><br />If you liked this article, you may also like this one: <a href="http://blog.dropshipaccess.com/bid/58147/Time-Management-Tips-for-the-Work-at-Home-Dropship-Entrepreneur" title="Time Management Tips for the Work-at-Home Dropship Entrepreneur " target="_blank"><strong>Time Management Tips for the Work-at-Home Dropship Entrepreneur</strong> </a><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/66632/Ecommerce-Dropship-Tips-3-Simple-Ways-to-Increase-Online-Sales&bvt=rss">Greg ScottThu, 14 Jul 2011 16:18:00 GMTf1397696-738c-4295-afcd-943feb885714:66632http://blog.dropshipaccess.com/bid/65961/Camping-Gear-Drop-Shippers-Take-Advantage-of-Summertime-Sales#Comments2Camping Gear Drop-Shippers: Take Advantage of Summertime Sales!http://blog.dropshipaccess.com/bid/65961/Camping-Gear-Drop-Shippers-Take-Advantage-of-Summertime-Sales<br><img id="img-1316716925552" src="http://blog.dropshipaccess.com/Portals/41336/images/tent.JPG" border="0" alt="camping gear drop-shippers" class="alignLeft" style="float: left;" />While it&rsquo;s true that some hardy souls brave the elements and go on camping trips year round, summertime is probably the best time to make extra sales for <a href="http://www.dropshipaccess.com/outdoor-sports-camping-hiking-c-382_159043_16034.html" title="camping gear drop-shippers" target="_blank"><strong>camping gear drop-shippers</strong></a>. <br /><br />Some people really like to rough it and will trek as far into the wilderness and away from civilization as they can possibly get.

Pave the way! You can&rsquo;t just pounce on people and ask for the sale before laying some groundwork. For instance, first identify the problem, then explain why your product is the solution to that problem. Tell the viewer about the benefits of responding to your call to action. <br /><br />2. Limit choices! You don&rsquo;t want to muddy the water by confusing shoppers on your dropship website with too many choices. A good rule of thumb is to confines choices to be all actions that you want the viewer to make. For example: &ldquo;Buy now and checkout&rdquo; or &ldquo;Add to cart and continue shopping&rdquo; or something along that line. <br /><br />3. Create a sense of urgency! Use phrases such as &ldquo;Limited Time Only&rdquo; or &ldquo;Only 22 Left in Stock! Buy Now!&rdquo; or &ldquo;Buy Now and Get Free Shipping!&rdquo;<br />The idea is to provide a strong motivation for the shopper not to do what comes naturally---procrastinate.<br /><br />4. Make your call to action stand out! It&rsquo;s best to leave some space around your call to action. If it&rsquo;s too cluttered all around it, this produces distractions that will divert the viewer&rsquo;s attention away from where you want it; which is focused on your asking for the sale, thus increasing profits for your online dropship business. <br /><br />5. Sweeten the pot! Sometimes, if shoppers are balanced right on the cusp of buying or not buying, simply throwing in a little extra will tip the scales in your favor. It needn&rsquo;t be anything expensive. You might offer a free e-book on something interesting or informative, for instance.<br /><br />6. Supersize it! Just as with burgers, fries and soft drinks at a fast food joint, it helps to supersize your call to action. Make it big! Make it bold, too, with a contrasting color to the rest of the page content! Grab a viewer&rsquo;s attention and make your call to action impossible to miss.<br /><br />7. Keep it simple and user friendly! Tempting though it may be to mine for data such as date of birth, email address and more---don&rsquo;t! The average internet consumer will not jump through multiple hoops to buy from you. If they are ready to buy, direct them to that step as concisely and quickly as possible. Dilly dally or dither around too much and they&rsquo;re gone. <br /><br />Use these simple tips to write great calls to action that will boost your dropship business sales!<br /><br />If you found this article useful, you may also want to check out this one: <p class="title"><a href="http://blog.dropshipaccess.com/bid/32461/5-Great-Ways-to-Increase-eCommerce-Dropship-Sales" title="5 Great Ways to Increase eCommerce Dropship Sales" target="_blank"><strong>5 Great Ways to Increase eCommerce Dropship Sales</strong></a></p> <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/64129/7-Tips-for-Writing-a-Call-to-Action-That-Will-Boost-Dropship-Sales&bvt=rss">Amanda BrookeThu, 23 Jun 2011 16:20:00 GMTf1397696-738c-4295-afcd-943feb885714:64129http://blog.dropshipaccess.com/bid/64124/Ecommerce-Dropship-Tips-Want-to-Make-Money-Ask-For-the-Sale#Comments0Ecommerce Dropship Tips: Want to Make Money?

Given a choice and without a nudge in the right direction, most will follow the Scarlett O&rsquo;Hara philosophy of &ldquo;I&rsquo;ll think about it tomorrow.&rdquo;<br /><br />W. Clement Stone founded a multi-billion dollar industry in the insurance business using the principle of asking for the sale, plus other equally effective techniques.<br /><br />Stone, author of the renowned book &ldquo;The Success System That Never Fails,&rdquo; was a proponent of asking for the sale. All of his agents were trained to follow this practice. In fact, they were given a sales talk to memorize that ended with the simple call to action: &ldquo;May I write one for you also? May I?&rdquo;<br /><br />Sound corny?<br /><br />Think again. It works!<br /><br />W. Clement Stone, for example, began life on the poor side of South Chicago. His father died when he was only three, leaving his mother to eke out a living for herself and Stone by working as a dressmaker.<br /><br />He dropped out of high school to join his mother in Detroit in an insurance agency she had started. She stayed in the office; he got out and made cold calls in the business district, door to door. <br /><br />One short year later in 1919---still a teenager---Stone founded the Combined Insurance Company of America.
