Start a Home Business with CD Dropshipping

CD dropshippingDid you know that you can start a home business with CD dropshipping?

CDs are profitable as well as popular, so you have a huge global target market and plenty of consumer demand all through the year. Naturally, with CDs being high on many shoppers’ gift lists during the winter holidays, you could reasonably expect t see a spike in sales during those heavy shopping periods before Santa Claus makes his big run.

Music has been around for thousands of years and there isn’t any danger of it suddenly falling out of fashion and becoming yesterday’s news like the hula hoop, mullets and parachute pants.  

Audio books are also tremendously popular with many people and although available on cassette tapes, the majority of consumers prefer to get the audio books on CDs.

So, you could actually do CD dropshipping with music as well as audio books and scoop up even more sales!

Here is some interesting info from Nielsen:

“Overall music purchases surpassed 1.65 billion units in 2012, up 3.1% vs. the previous record high set in 2011, driven by digital music sales, which continue be a key growth element within the market,” said David Bakula, SVP Client Development, Nielsen. “Digital Album sales are up 14.1% and Digital Track sales are up 5.1%, but despite being down 12.8%, physical is still the dominant album format.”

If you decide to get into CD dropshipping, there are many varieties and genres of music, all with loyal followings among shoppers around the world. Here are a few of the types of music CDs you might like to dropship:

R & B
Soft Rock
Hip Hop
And More

Although digital music is certainly gaining ground, CDs are still going strong, with 193 million CD album sales in the United States alone during 2012.

When marketing for CD dropshipping, don’t overlook the fact that a large percentage of your target market is teens and those who fall into the 21 and younger age bracket. These kids have money to spend and one thing they will definitely spend it on is music!

Where can you do CD dropshipping?

Anywhere online you want to, basically. Amazon, eBay, Bonanza, ProStores, or your own website….the possibilities are plenty. Do keep in mind though that if you decide to do CD dropshipping from your own website, you will not be able to pull in the enormous amount of global traffic that flows through the giant sites such as Amazon and eBay.

These sites are household words in most of the civilized world and each has millions of shoppers every day.

Ecommerce has a world of potential to earn a comfortable living working from the privacy and security of your own home, but having a niche that is in demand so that you have plenty of potential customers is critical to your success or failure in an online home business such as dropshipping.

CD dropshipping is a proven winner of a niche, so get started now!
