You save time and money avoiding warehousing, packaging, shipping materials and return costs. You spend time focusing on what you do best: researching new products, marketing, serving your customers and selling!
The most important step – the one that most people never take – is to actually get started building your business! This is the hardest thing for most people and it's usually a result of fear and uncertainty. It's a common misconception that successful entrepreneurs have a rock-solid certainty about their business at the outset. When you dig a little deeper, you'll find that most had fears and reservations about how things would turn out. Yet they moved forward with their plan despite these doubts. If you're serious about building your own drop shipping business, you'll need to do the same. Do your research, evaluate your options and then move forward with that information in spite of your fears and reservations. It's what entrepreneurs do.
Every successful e-commerce store we encounter has one thing in common: It specializes. The more the store specializes, the more successful they tend to be. Many think narrowing their focus limits their potential customer base and will cost them sales. Just the opposite is true! Specializing allows you to communicate more effectively with your customers, stand out more easily from the competition and compete against a smaller field. Specializing is rarely a bad move to make in a drop shipping venture.
If you're launching a store in a new niche you probably won't know what segment of your customers to focus on – and that's OK. But as you gain experience with your customers you should identify the segment that's the most profitable and that allows you to add the most value. Then, try to position your business to focus exclusively on those customers' needs and problems. You'll be amazed at how your conversion rates improve even if you're charging a premium price.
Remember: If everyone is your customer, then no one is. Specialization makes it easier to differentiate yourself, charge a premium price and concentrate your marketing efforts more effectively.
We strongly recommend that a thorough merchandising strategy, marketing plan with sales and inventory goals including a cash flow plan be developed prior to listing items for sale.
Moreover, having access to multiple suppliers can be a huge advantage. Why? Because having multiple suppliers with overlapping inventory is the BEST way to improve your order fulfillment ratio. If supplier A doesn't have an item in stock, there's a good chance supplier B has it. Additionally, it's risky to rely on one supplier as the only place to source your product. If they decide not to work with you, raise their prices or go out of business it jeopardizes the future of your business.
Thank you for considering Elaines Fragrances as your business partner. We look forward to serving you soon!
We'd like you to meet a few retailers who have made selling with Elaines Fragrances work for them...
"As an e-commerce website retailer, I find Elaines Fragrances to be one of the very best drop shipper I have ever worked with. They are on the ball sending out orders in an immediate fashion. I appreciate their ability to add products to my site from their inventory. Works every time. I have no complaints whatsoever."--Brenda
"A few years back I found myself suddenly alone, left to raise my only son. I didn't know what to do or how I was going to do it. I had been a claims adjuster for several years but that required a ton of field work. I began to realize it quickly that for a child to fare well - he would need to have a stay-at-home mother. How were we going to make it? So I looked into home businesses and almost immediately I was scammed. The blessing for me however, came one day when I ran across a distributor called Elaines Fragrances. I kid you not - they literally saved the day. They have given me constant attention and care on what to do and how to do it next. I did not think these kind of people existed out there in the business world."--Pat
"I have been a customer of Elaines Fragrances for the past 5 years, and I want to mention that it's been a great experience thus far. Elaines Fragrances has helped me understand and achieve success owning my own drop shipping business by bringing a wide variety of products for all likes and budgets. Keep up the excellent work Elaines Fragrances!!"-- Arlene
"I joined Elaines Fragrances a few years ago, since then my eBay business is getting better and better all the time. They are very helpful and honest with me. I look forward to a very long relationship with them."--Jeffrey
"Elaines Fragrances allows me to fill many gaps in my product lines with their diverse range of drop shipping products. And their high in stock rate helps me so my customers don't get disappointed by ordering something no longer available. I was thrilled to find them as a drop shipping supplier!"--Owen
"I've been using Elaines Fragrances for several years. I originally listed their drop shipping products on eBay because it was easy and the return on investment made it worthwhile. Currently, I run my own website and stock it with drop ship products from Elaines Fragrances. Although I occasionally use other drop shippers their drop ship services and professionalism has consistently exceeded my expectation. Their drop ship products are top quality and well priced for competitive marketing."--Dan
"New to drop shipping but not to eBay. Decided to try out Elaines Fragrances based on their BBB endorsement. Elaines Fragrances has exceeded our expectations in every respect, from drop ship product selection to customer service. Had over 20 items listed with their extra large images. Sold many of them in less than a week. I highly recommend Elaines Fragrances to drop ship entrepreneurs worldwide. Simply put, "they deliver"!"--Cody
