Discovering and picking out those best one product dropshipping stores can be a critical step and exciting phase.
But you know what? It can also be extremely tedious, time consuming and frustrating. Firstly, there are so many choices. Secondly, many of these choices are not obvious. And thirdly, there is a learning curve with most of these vendors you have to go through before you can actually get going. Read on more about it.
What is Dropshipping and Why Do it?
Dropshipping is one of the most cost effective forms of selling online. When you sell via dropship, you don’t have to maintain an inventory, pay for expensive advertising or pay for brick and mortar retail space. Instead, you simply arrange for someone else to sell on your behalf.
It’s very low-risk because you don’t have to keep inventory. If your product sells well, you will often find yourself with extra inventory. But beware! If your customer base does not develop as fast as you expect, or if you do not have good control over your customers, you can quickly find yourself with thousands (or even millions) of unsold products sitting in your warehouse which will cost you a fortune in lost profit.
So, how do you ensure this never happens? The answer is simple: You keep a close eye on your cash-flow, and you make sure it is strong enough to support your rapid growth. That means you must collect enough money from your sales to pay for your overhead, pay your bills on time, and have a little left over for “fun.” Let us assume, for the moment, your business has been operating for one full year. At this point, you should have a pretty good idea of how well your business is doing.
