Want a Money Making Ecommerce Niche? Dropship Classical Music CDs
Anyone who wants a money making ecommerce home business niche should consider this idea: dropship
classical music CDs!
You may be thinking that there isn’t a big enough demand for classic music CDs and that your target demographic would be too limited to allow you the opportunity to make any real money.
While it’s true that this niche isn’t going to have the market that popular music has, it still has a following of devotees that should be enough to provide you with a lot of sales.What is Classical Music?
If you’re unsure about exactly what constitutes “classical music” and need some clarification, here is a great one from trusty Wikipedia, the free online encyclopedia that is ever so handy:
“Classical music is the art music produced in, or rooted in, the traditions of Western liturgical and secular music, encompassing a broad period from roughly the 11th century to present times. The central norms of this tradition became codified between 1550 and 1900, which is known as the common practice period.
The term "classical music" did not appear until the early 19th century, in an attempt to "canonize" the period from Johann Sebastian Bach to Beethoven as a golden age.
In other words, classical music began hundreds of years ago and is still being written today. That being said, there seems to be a noticeable lack of the great composers of the past. Still, there are quite a few modern composers of classical music who have devotees that will be happy to buy CDs of their favorite artists.Examples of Classical Music
There are hundreds of classical music pieces, but the following are generally considered to be the crème de la crème and definitely some that you should include in your dropship listings of classical music CDs:
- Beethoven's 9th Symphony
- Mozart's last 3 symphonies (39, 40 & 41)

If you’re still in doubt as to whether or not this market is strong enough to support a home dropship business, take a look at this bit of interesting news from 2011 in The National
“…earlier this year, a staggering 33 million people watched the YouTube Symphony Orchestra finale - displacing none other than U2 as the most-viewed concert online. Meanwhile, the BBC Philharmonic teamed up with dubstep stars Nero for the eagerly awaited Dubstep Symphony. And if these events seem like gimmicky attempts to enlighten disaffected youth, consider this: late last month the US entertainment magazine Variety reported that classical music CDs enjoyed the biggest gain in sales of all genres in the first six months of this year - 13 per cent up from the same period in 2010.”
33 million people watched a YouTube video of a classical music performance? That sounds like a pretty good sized bit of interest in classical music!
