The principles of dropshipping: how it works

the principles of dropshipping

Before getting into the moneymaking side of things, it’s essential to understand how dropshipping works.

There are 3 roles in the dropshipping business model: You (the merchant and store owner), your supplier, and your customer.

In regular online stores, the merchant purchases stock beforehand from the supplier, stores it somewhere and sends it to the customer when a purchase is made. Dropshipping is a bit different than that and provides much more freedom and flexibility to you, as the store merchant. You don’t need to buy products and keep them in stock. Instead, you simply list them on your website, while your supplier takes care of the inventory. When you get an order request for a certain item, your supplier will take care of the shipping on your behalf. After that, all you have to take care of is providing high-quality customer service so that your shoppers will stay happy and keep coming back for more purchases!

So, in more simple terms, it looks like this:

  • Your customer places an order on your online store
  • You purchase that same product from your supplier at wholesale price
  • Your supplier ships the product to your customer

When you have a dropshipping business, you avoid many issues and potential losses of any up-front capital investments.

Moreover, with the dropshipping business model, you don’t need to rent out any workspace, hire employees. All that you need is a computer and an internet connection and you can work on your dropshipping store from anywhere on the planet.

Why you should start a dropshipping business

Now that you understand the basics of dropshipping, why should you start a dropshipping business?

First of all, dropshipping can be a profitable business model for store owners because many aspects of the traditional business model are missing here. In general, it’s a low-risk business model that does not include huge costs. Moreover, with the right supplier, you can make some real money.

However, starting any business and building it up for success requires investing time and money. It’s understandable that the majority of people aren’t able to commit full-time because of their job. However, it is possible to get started with dropshipping, even while you’re working your regular 9-to-5 job (even though it’s totally outdated now).

When your business starts to grow and expand, you can smoothly transition to committing to your dropshipping store full-time.

Of course, the more time you dedicate to your business, the more you increase the chance for your profit potential and chance of dropshipping success. What will help your business to grow is the marketing side of your business. It’s especially important in the early stages of your business development.

The time it takes for your business to truly take off, can’t be measured, as a lot of aspects play into it. Don’t worry, we will discuss the aspects of this down below, so stay tuned.

The most important thing to take into consideration is that once your dropshipping business is up and running, maintaining it will take significantly less time compared to a 40-hour-per-week job. This allows you to live your life to the fullest doing what you love and making money while you’re at it. 

Best of all, you can try absolutely for FREE! You won’t need to spend a single dollar starting your business and have all the tools you need to build it up for success.

Among all things, a successful money making dropshipping business is all about a great online store, a reliable supplier and high-quality products.

Luckily, Sellvia is the ultimate solution when it comes to starting an online business. Sellvia is a whole ecommerce ecosystem that will allow you to create a dropshipping business with no investments or risks.

So, if you’re tired of living a boring life doing the same thing every day and working for someone else, it’s time for a change.

In fact, it’s time to be your own boss and dictate your own terms. With Sellvia, it’s super easy to achieve this in no time at all. Partnering with Sellvia, you get the following:

  • A trustworthy supplier 

Starting a regular dropshipping business, you’ll need to invest a significant amount of time into researching various suppliers. And one way or another, you’re going to stumble upon some drawbacks.

However, Sellvia is a proven solution in the dropshipping space and by partnering with us, you can be sure that all of the orders in your online store will be taken care of with the highest care. 

While Sellvia specialists are handling your orders, you can spend time with your family and loved ones, or pursue other activities you’re passionate about.

  • Products of the highest quality 

Another important aspect of a successful dropshipping business is having a store filled with popular products.

And we offer just that!

If you look at the Sellvia catalog, you will find different categories of products filled with trending products. Every product comes with its own stellar product page filled with quality media materials like photos, videos and detailed descriptions.

In addition, all the products come with information about their selling price. This allows you to easily understand how much money you’re going to receive from selling this or that product.

Moreover, all the products are stored in a US warehouse, which brings us to the next point.

  • Fast delivery times

Utilizing the dropshipping model with other suppliers you are going to have to bear with the problem of long delivery. And if your goal is to build a thriving business you can rely on, that’s not acceptable in the modern day,

Nowadays, customers expect their orders to be delivered in a timely manner. Thus, providing them with 2-to-4-week delivery time (or even more) will be a huge disadvantage.

However, partnering up with Sellvia, customers who order from your online store will receive their orders on time.

  • Highly converting marketing materials 

Sellvia products come with their own time-tested marketing materials you can use in your promotional efforts. Creating ad campaigns has never been so easy!

  • A professional online store 

None of the above is complete without a fully-functional online store where you’ll sell these products.

Even if you have absolutely any experience with ecommerce, you can get your own online store in just a few clicks!

Starting your dream business with Sellvia

Before understanding how to make money dropshipping, there are a few key points you must consider.

As you can see, almost all of the tasks are already taken care of for you.

However, if your goal is not only to build a short-term side-hustle that will bring you some revenue, but a solution that will bring you to financial freedom and independence, there’s a few things for you to take care of.

  • Find the right niche 

The Sellvia catalog is filled with thousands of trending products of different categories. However, which one is the one for you?

Of course, money is important, however, it’s much more fulfilling to have an emotional connection to your online store and the products you’re selling.

Your online store should be closely connected with something you’re passionate about. Not only that, but it should solve some kind of problem that your potential audience is also passionate about. 

This way, it will be much easier for you to understand what your potential customers want and show yourself as an expert in this field.

Moreover, truly caring about your business will help excel in other aspects of your ecommerce journey. It will allow your business to shine through its branding, ad campaigns, social media, and overall, in communications.

And we’re certain that in our catalog you’ll find products that will allow your business to thrive to its full potential.

If you’re having second thoughts about what you should choose, remember, you can always consult with our team. They will take you in the right direction and help you pick the right option.

  • Create a brand identity

To get the most out of your dropshipping business, you have to build a strong brand.

Branding is one of the key areas where you can add real value to your business. And more value equals more money.

But, what does good branding look like?

In ecommerce, trust is everything. What is a potential customer going to see when they come to your store? High-quality logos and design, a responsive and well-developed website, an active social media presence – all these elements will help customers feel they can trust you with their hard-earned cash.

If online consumers don’t trust your store, they’ll simply go buy someplace else. However, your brand can do a lot to create and sustain that trust.

Another thing that great brands provide is consistency.

Good brands are consistent across their communication, whether it’s on their website, their social media pages, or in their customer support.

Show your professionalism and attention to detail to make interactions with you more memorable and enjoyable for customers.

So, whether you’re writing a FAQ, putting together a marketing campaign, or updating a product page, ask yourself: “How would my brand say this?” You can also think about the products you pick. Choose ones that have a similar feel, look, and quality level to your brand.

Another thing to look at when it comes to branding is providing customers with value. Consumers choose brands that reflect themselves and their values. So emphasize what matters to you and be clear on what you stand for. This might simply be in the way you communicate.

If you want to sell unique products and create your own brand, Sellvia has the solution! From the product design to manufacturing and logistics, we got you covered. Truly a dream come true.

  • Think of a marketing strategy 

How will online shoppers find your online store and your products among all the different ecommerce platforms out there if they have never heard of them before? In ecommerce, your marketing is everything.

First, you’re going to need to find your target audience and their specifications. What’s their age and gender? Where do they live? What interests and hobbies do they have? How much do they spend? How much do they earn? And so on. 

Finding your target audience is a never ending process, so you’re going to need to research this question often. This means following the latest trends and keeping tabs on your audience’s purchasing habits.

Once you have an understanding of your ideal customer, it’s time to get the word out about your online store. So, get active on various social media platforms with Instagram and Facebook ads, through influencers, forums and different online communities about your awesome online store!

The more effort you put into this, the more customers you will get as a result.

If you’re willing to speed up the process and want customers to come faster, then you’re going to have to use paid advertising methods. Nevertheless, there are free promotional methods as well.

Besides your usual marketing efforts, you must not forget about SEO and content marketing. This will help your store rank higher in the search engines and create extra value for your customers. A great idea is to start a blog for that extra bit of content. This will allow you to rank higher, while providing quality content to your customers. What’s more, you can share that extra content on your social media accounts to engage with your customers on different platforms.
