If you have the resources, you may also subscribe to paid product research tools.
One of their core advantages is that they don’t publish trending or potentially viral products for the public to see. Instead, only subscribers can see their list, so you can trust that their recommended products aren’t oversaturated.
Additionally, most paid research tools have features that allow you to import products to your store right away. So if you’re quick enough, you can have the first-mover advantage with just a few clicks.
Following are some paid tools that you can consider. If you aren’t sure which one to subscribe to, feel free to take advantage of their free trial (if available) before purchasing a subscription.
Partner with your dropship suppliers
If you’ve already established rapport with one or a few reliable wholesalers, you might want to consider elevating that relationship into a solid partnership.
This doesn’t happen instantly, of course. Rather, you’ll have to put in the effort to build trust and show your suppliers that you’re worth working with long-term.
Part of the perks of having strong supplier relationships is that you can tap their knowledge about hot dropshipping products. They can give you leads to the best products to sell. They might even offer to do the sourcing for you if they don’t currently have the products you want.
Viral products can win you huge profits if you find and sell them before other stores do. Having the first-mover advantage is always a big factor here, which you can get if you know the five secrets to finding trending products fast.
Additionally, don’t just settle for being the first—also strive to be the best mover by staying updated on dropshipping best practices and continuing to improve your eCommerce skills.
Product research is an ongoing part of running a dropshipping business, so make sure that it’s always on your to-do list, along with the best strategies mentioned in this article.
