That is why In this article, we are going to cover in great detail:
- Why is dropshipping product research important?
- What products should you pick?
- What makes a great dropshipping niche.
- Our favourite dropshipping niches.
- Our list of the best dropshipping products to sell this summer.
Let’s get started on discovering the best dropshipping products.
The importance of product research for dropshipping
The aim of product research is for us to make sure that we have all of our logistics taken care of in order to achieve our end goal - creating a successful (profitable) business.
And with product research we are actually doing market research to make sure our products have at least 2, ideally 3, out of these 3 things:
- Competition levels (avoiding oversaturated products so you don’t become a commodity while having the ability to “ride the trend” if possible).
- Good profit margins (buy low, sell high) so you have room for extra expenses like online advertising in order to scale faster.
- Long-term potential (a big enough market of passionate/interested buyers to build a long term business)
We will be focusing on 1. and 3. because your profit margins will depend on a few factors like the supplier’s price and the product’s resell price you select.
Also don’t forget to select a supplier that may have the product in a warehouse closest to countries like the US, for example, so your shipping speed is optimal.
How to choose the best dropshipping products?
As a way to make sure our products meet the above mentioned criteria, here are some of the best market research tactics to find high-quality products to promote.
Identifying “Passion Niches”
So what exactly is a “passion niche”? A passion niche is simply a niche where people have been buying for a long period of time(usually for years) items that they simply enjoy.
A few things that come to mind immediately are things that fall into the “hobby” category.
So things like camping equipment, fishing, card collections, etc. would fall into the category.
Understanding how important a niche is on your road to success, our tool gives you multiple categories and niches with the click of a button. All with the necessary data to back it up.
For example, if you go to our
Aliexpress database you will be able to pick between 20+ profitable niches and filter the data by price, star rating, orders growth, competition, and a lot more.
And in case you want to find additional niche products ideas, you can go to our “Niches” category and find new products with great profit margins that we personally recommend you look into.
Looking at top marketplaces like Amazon, Ebay, or Aliexpress
Going to marketplaces, whether it be Amazon or Aliexpress, is a great way to validate the demand for the niche you have selected previously, or find new opportunities.
We will use Amazon as an example.
Simply go to Amazon and click on “All” at the top left corner.
After that click on any of the bigger categories like Electronics, Computers, Smart Home, etc. to go to a sub category (sub niche).
As you can see I chose “Electronics”. I find “Camera & Photo” interesting so I will go with that.
Now, we just want to see products that have a good amount of reviews, high number of orders, and are ideally in the 30-100$ dollars price range.1
We are looking at lower priced items because the more expensive an item is, the more the consumers think to themselves “let me think about it”.
And that is something that we don’t want.
Also, it is worth pointing out that 50$ for one niche may be considered cheap while in another it may be quite expensive.
So try to get an average product price and quantity of orders per product.
A great way is to niche down even further by selecting a specific product category on the left hand side.
I will select “Binoculars & Scopes”.
Doing keyword research
With keyword research,we are accomplishing the same goal of getting a birds eye view of the average demand for a specific product, or our niche overall.
The other benefit is that we can assess the competition levels better than going through Amazon or Ebay alone.
So after you get some ideas from the major marketplaces, you can use a free tool like Ubersuggest to get an estimate of both the paid and organic Google competition levels for your product/niche.
Simply go to Ubersuggest
Make sure the filter is set to English/United States and enter the product (keyword) you wish to check.
I will enter “binoculars”
As we can see, it is quite competitive both organically and paid on Google but the keyword has very good demand.
And if you scroll down a bit, then you will get more insight into which brands or product features consumers are specifically looking for.
You also see on the right the organic traffic numbers and competition levels for each search phrase/keyword.
Doing SEO and PPC are beyond the scope of this article, so It would be good to look into ways to get traffic to your dropshipping store later on.
Here we are just assessing the demand, competition, and getting an insight into the consumer’s mind about our products.
Spying on the best dropshipping stores
For identifying the best dropshipping products out there, here are some of our favorite competitor research tools.
Similar Web is a free chrome extension that will help you go behind the scenes so to speak about each competitor’s website that you visit.
You will see a lot of important data beyond product research,such as:
- Total visits
- Traffic by country
- Traffic sources
- Organic and paid search data
- Traffic share per social channel
And a lot more.
We in particular care about the “Search” category where we can see which search phrases/products are bringing in the most visitors/sales to their website.
And in case you are wondering, yes the below mentioned website is a dropshipping store.
SEMRush is one of our favourite tools because it can show you, just like SimilarWeb, how your competitors are getting their traffic in terms of SEO (organically) and PPC (paid)
However, if you click on “Paid Search Traffic”, you can find out your competitors' top paid keywords (their best selling products most probably).
With the “Traffic %” column you can identify which products they are focusing on primarily at the moment.
We can assume that their ads are most likely profitable since they are allocating a significant percent of the available budget).
And if you decide to start running Google Ads for the same product, then you can look at their ad for some ad copy inspiration. Just hover over the green ad text under the “Ad” column.
Facebook Ads Library
The best thing about the Facebook Ads Library is that it gives you the ability to see exactly what ads all of your competitors are running.
But most importantly, you can see for how long they have been running them.
Here is a quick guide on how to use it effectively for competitor research.
FindNiche Ad Spy
No list of favorites would be complete without our own tool, right?
Our tool helps you get all the data you need for any advertising keyword, page, post, or URL that you enter for the three most important social platforms ( Facebook, Instagram, and Youtube).
We will show you all of the best ads in our database along with all the key engagement metrics you need before deciding after which ad you should model yours for optimal results.
