Prom Time: Dropshipping Trendy Dresses
It’s Prom Time, and dropshipping trendy dresses for girls to wear to the prom is big business!
According to Google AdWords, the keyword phrase “prom dresses” was searched a whopping 5 million times last month!
There is no doubt about it---this is a hungry niche with a huge consumer demand.
If you are dropshipping clothing and haven’t caught this wave, you definitely should.
However, you need to be quick about it.
Of course, the beauty of dropship sales is that you don’t actually have to have the product on hand. So, you can get busy and find a good, reputable dropship supplier of trendy prom dresses and be selling them in a jiffy.
One thing you should do is try to find a supplier who offers good quality merchandise. Prom dresses are usually pricey, and this is generally not an area where people like to scrimp much.
Prom night is a big deal!
Another thing you should do is a bit of research to determine what styles and colors of prom dresses are hot this season.
You’re in luck here because according to market research this year, when it comes to what’s popular in prom dresses…anything goes!
Long, short, pastel or bold colors…..mini, maxi, midi….strapless, long sleeves, halter, short sleeves….tight and sleek, bouffant and poufy….full skirts, layered and tiered skirts and everything in between.
The vintage look has been in fashion since Carrie showed us all how great it looks in Sex and the City, and it continues to be a popular style.
Some of the most popular and searched for brands and designers of prom dresses are:
Dave and Johnny
Paris by Tony Bowls
Be sure that the supplier has a good selection of sizes, too, and plenty in stock.
If you’re going to sell prom dresses, why not cross sell and offer matching shoes, purses and jewelry?
These are things that almost everybody who buys a prom dress will be getting, so why should you pass up the sale?
If you do offer matching accessories and shoes, choose carefully so that they do, in fact, match.
It can be difficult to tell, when shopping online, the exact shade of an item. If you are in doubt, call the supplier and ask about colors. This isn’t a perfect solution because one person’s perception of red might not be yours. However, time is short for selling prom dresses this year, and if you do decide to sell matching shoes and accessories, you’ll basically have to wing it and just do the best you can.
Prom dresses have enjoyed big sales for many, many years and no doubt will continue to do so for many years to come.
Seasonal items such as prom dresses can do a lot to boost your profit for the entire year because they’re normally a fairly big ticket item.
Selling trendy prom dresses in your dropshipping business can be a great opportunity for an internet entrepreneur!
