Mistakes to avoid when starting a dropshipping business

 

  • Unrealistic expectations

We are not saying don’t aspire to big things, great profits, but if you are starting, please be patient, work constantly, and study. Unrealistic expectations might not be costly in dollars. But they are costly to your morale and mindset. Therefore they will have a crucial part in how long you will be willing to continue or now. 

If your mind is okay and steady most likely you will be able to continue working to grow your dropshipping business or any business you are trying to work.  

 

  • Not researched enough before selling a product

Research is a key step when starting a dropshipping business. We talk about this a little more in-depth on our previous blog and post. But it is always important to highlight this. Don’t take for granted these steps only because it might be overwhelming, and “boring”, the more information you have when starting your business the more chances you will have to prevent little mistakes that can cost money. 

 

  • Relying on one supplier

This is a really common mistake that drop shippers make when they’re starting. Once you only rely on one person, business, supplier and all your business depend on them you can face many different factors you cannot control such as, your supplier runs out of stock, goes out of business, or has one of the myriad other issues, and you’re left scrambling to find a replacement supplier.

  • Not optimizing your store

There are many techniques you can apply to your online store to ensure you have a great product and space for your customer to navigate in. There are important things to take into account when creating a website such as: 

  • Make sure your site is fast, if it takes too much to load the site you will lose people’s attention.
  • Keyword Research is the beginning of optimizing your website. You can use Google Keyword Planner. The tool will then give you a wide range of search terms, how often they are searched, and the competition over those words
  • Use Landing pages, you want every single one of your landing pages to keep your keywords in mind. 

 

  • Not testing your products

This is a common mistake that some new business owners made at the beginning. So keep this in mind, before creating your online page, make sure your supplier is good. 

Bad products will cost a lot of money and customers, so make sure you invest just time testing them instead of going all-in without checking and confirming the quality of the product will have your name on it.
