Gear Up for Santa & Get Ready to Dropship Toys!
It may be the middle of a long, hot summer here in the USA, but Santa will be here before you know it and anyone interested in working from home with a profitable ecommerce business might start thinking about getting ready to dropship
Toys are big business.
As a year round niche, you can depend on toys to provide you with a steady flow of potential customers as shoppers buy them for gifts for all sorts of occasions such as birthdays and more.
But, as toy buying goes, the biggest surge will be during the winter holidays when Santa Claus makes his big run.
If you want to supplement your income or work from home full time, you would be hard pressed to find a better niche than toys for dropshipping. Now is the time to start making your preparations!
If you don’t have a wholesale dropship product source, this is the first thing you should do when you start getting your ducks in a row to dropship toys. You want a product supplier who is established and is a member in good standing of the Better Business Bureau. You also want to make sure that you get genuine wholesale prices, because if not, there will not be enough of a margin for profit and your home business will fail.
If the supplier has brand name toys, this is even better since dropshipping brand name products gives you a definite edge with shoppers.
Once you have found a reputable wholesale product source, choose the toys you want to dropship. Then, decide on a venue. Do you want to sell on eBay? Amazon? Would you rather have your own web site? All of these things must be done in advance before you dropship toys.
According to statistics, while so many markets were tanking during the recession, toy sales were booming. Here are some of the toys predicted by the Toy Retailers Association to be best sellers in the upcoming winter holidays:
- Furby Party Rocker Creatures
- Lego Star Wars Rancor Pit
- Disney Infinity Start Pack 3
- Lego Legends of Chima Eagle’s Castle
But, aside from these predicted favorites, you can always count on the old traditional standbys to be good sellers such as:
- Building Blocks
- Sports Products
- And More
And while you’re at with the dropship toys, don’t forget pets. Yes, pets! You might be amazed at how much money people spend on their pets, especially during the winter holidays. Many doting pet owners even hang stocking for Fido and Fluffy. You could do quite well with dropship toys if you include some pet toys, as well as those for kids.
Toys have been around for hundreds of years. Actually, more like thousands of years. If you dropship toys, you won’t have to worry about the niche going belly up on you because it simply isn’t going to happen. It’s a dependable year round money maker that will really take off and boom during the winter holidays.
If you want to pick up some extra money or leave your regular job in favor of working from home, you can dropship toys and build a profitable home business!
