How to Find the Perfect Drop Shipping Niche:

a Step-by-Step Guide

Looking for the perfect drop shipping niche idea is always hard.

At the very beginning, you are overwhelmed with questions. What niche to think of? What to concentrate on? What
if the chosen field wont turn out to be as p rofitable and popular as expected?

It is typically recommended to choose a niche that suits your own interests and passions. Thats a nice place to
start, and thats a guarantee you will treat this business patiently and professionally.

Still, if you want to build a profitable drop shipping webstore, you need to base your niche choice upon some
reliable and measurable criteria.

Thats why we have created this Guide for your convenience!


Drop shipping niche selection:

exploring AliExpress

When we select drop shipping niches for our own stores, we evaluate their potential with the help of several
parameters.

First of all, we visit the website of the drop shipping supplier weve previously chosen most typically, its a sellers
store on AliExpress. Here we can check the relevant statistics to see if this niche and these specific products will be
a good choice.

We use a five-star scale. The rating of 5 stars means that from the point of view of this separate parameter, this
niche has an excellent potential. The rating of 1 star means that from the point of view of this separate parameter,
this niche is not promising at all.

When we visit AliExpress, we estimate:

AliExpress products quantity.We look at the number of items that can be found here upon the use of
aparticular keyword. We only include the items that have the free shipping option and the 4*+ rating.

If we can find more than 2000 items, the score we assign to this niche is 5*;
For 500 1 999 items the score is 4,5*;
For 100 499 items the score is 4*;
For 1-99 items the score is 3*.

The niche popularity on AliExpress. We set the same parameters and sort the items by the number of
orders. Then we take the first 10 items and calculate the arithmetic mean of the number of orders.

If the arithmetic mean is more than 2000 orders, the score we assign to this niche is 5*;
For 500 1 999 orders the score is 4,5*;
For 100 499 orders the score is 4*;
For 1-99 orders the score is 3*.
Trusted supplier. We set the same parameters, take the first 10 stores, and evaluate them by the same
parameters as AliExpress itself does:

How long the store has been in operation;


What its feedback score is;
What the percentage of its positive feedback is;
How much the items fit their descriptions;
How good the communication is;
How satisfactory the shipping speed is.

We consider all these parameters, but, in our opinion, the percentage of positive feedback is the most important.
Customer satisfaction is the key factor to a stores commercial success. This is why we calculate the arithmetic
mean of the feedback score for these first 10 stores:

If the arithmetic mean is more than 96%, the score we assign to this niche is 5*;
For 95% 95,9% the score is 4,5*;
For 94% 94,9% the score is 4*;
For 93% 93,9% the score is 3*.

Price setting aspects. We are surely most interested in the products and drop shipping niches where a
considerable markup is possible.
It is exactly the case for the majority of simple basic goods offered on AliExpress because their prices are really
low. It means theres no problem with setting a higher price on our drop shipping website it will anyway be
lower than the price of competitors goods, so our customers will be satisfied with the purchase, and we will be
happy with the profit.

To estimate the margin potential, we take the price of the most popular item in the niche and look this item up
in 10 other online stores. We calculate the arithmetic mean of these 10 different prices (i.e. the average market
price) and compare it to the price set by AliExpress seller.

If the difference is more than 250%, the score we assign to this niche is 5*;
For 100% 249% the score is 4,5*;
For 50% 99% the score is 4*;
For 1% 49% the score is 3*.
Drop shipping niche selection:

going to Google Trends

Fashion, as well as public interest towards different product categories and separate items, tends to change over
time. You need to monitor it if you want to be sure that peoples interest to this niche is stable.

Google Trends is a wonderful instrument that gives you the necessary insight into general public interest towards
particular products. This service is designed to analyse search trends, so its perfect for your business because it
shows:

How the search volume changes Where the people searching for this
over time; term live;

What the most popular search Whether the interest towards this search
terms are; query is seasonal.

How to use it?

Pick a product category. The easiest way to do this is to rely onAliexpressand gather all its possible categories
(e.g. electronics, home and dcor, jewellery, etc.).
Go toGoogle Trendsand type in this category in the Explore Topics field. Lets take knitting, for example.
Look at the result and try to analyze it using additional settings.
For example, the graph below shows how the search volume changes over time, and, as you can see, it decreases
gradually. To learn more about this dynamics, you can change some settings:
Your region of interest;
Time frame;
Categories;
Type of content.
If the trend is ascending, the score we assign to this niche is 5*;
For a flat trend the score is 4*;
For a descending trend the score is 3*.

Whats quite curious, this example shows the seasonal interest towards a search query. There are types of goods
(for example, Halloween decorations, Christmas gifts, etc.) that are in demand only within a limited period of time.
Theres nothing wrong about having these products in your store if they are combined with some other kinds of
offers (birthday cards, wedding decorations, etc.) that are not season-dependent, but its not recommended to rely
on them solely.

Surely, you will also find it essential to learn more about the regions where this search query is the most popular.

Additionally, you will get the chance to see the most popular related search terms and estimate the speed of their
popularity growth. This will be a very important piece of knowledge at the moment of planning your marketing and
SEO strategies for promoting your drop shipping webstore.
Drop shipping niche selection:

evaluating promotional potential

We should try to estimate if we can successfully promote our offers on various social networks, at least on such
popular ones as Facebook and Instagram.

For example, while evaluating whether we can use Instagram for a particular category, we use the statistics provided
by theWebstaservice. All you need to do is type the chosen category in the Search field.

As you can see, the search results are divided into two categories: users who have this keyword in their account
names, and hashtags with this keyword. Therefore you can easily understand:

What kinds of hashtags you need to use in order What user accounts you can cooperate with
to reach the widest possible audience (these numbers in order to increase your webstore awareness.
show how many times the hashtag was used);

To evaluate how promising this drop shipping niche is, we use the following criteria:

If there are more than 10 accounts with more than 30000 followers, the score we assign to this niche is 5*;
For 5-9 accounts the score is 4,5*;
For 1-4 accounts the score is 4*;
For 0 accounts with this amount of followers the score is 3*.

We usually try to collaborate with the accounts that have at least 30,000 followers as this provides us with quite a
significant audience. The most common way of such collaboration is promotion via shoutouts: we ask the account
owner to publish our advertising posts from time to time on a paid basis.

When evaluating the promotional potential of a drop shipping niche, dont forget about Facebook! Facebook as a
social network is an exciting tool to communicate with your prospects and make your webstore well-known and
popular.

To check whether the chosen niche has the necessary potential, type its name in the Search field and choose the
Groups section. You will see a list of the existing groups that have this keyword in their names, and the number
of their members.

We usually consider a niche to be promising and prospective if it has more than 15 groups with more than 30,000
members per each. Additionally, it can be useful to also check out the Pages section it gives you even more
insight into this niche popularity and its opportunities for your business.

If there are more than 10 groups with more than 30000 members, the score we assign to this niche is 5*;
For 5-9 groups the score is 4,5*;
For 1-4 groups the score is 4*;
For 0 groups with this amount of subscribers the score is 3*.

Its important to mention that all these parameters can be successfully used to evaluate not only these particular
niches, but the related ones as well. For example, exploring the knitting niche, you can also consider looking into
sewing and knitting patterns, craftwork materials, etc.

It is also a great strategy to choose a product category that can easily be promoted through pay-per-click advertising
and search engine optimization tools. It means that we check if:

Some valuable content can be We can optimize images We can select enough relevant
generated for this webstore andvideos; and competitive keywords
niche; related to this category.

This is why search engine optimization (SEO) is vital for a successful webstore promotion.
Drop shipping niche selection:

evaluating SEO aspect

There are several important points you need to research before making up your mind on any niche for your drop
shipping business.

To make the drop shipping niche evaluation easier for you, we have made a scale that will help you decide which
niche has more potential in terms of SEO, and which one is almost impossible to squeeze in.

The first step is keywords analysis.

Every niche name in fact is a keyword. Therefore, first of all you should estimate the amount of searches for this
keyword on Google (and for those that sound alike). You can do it withGoogle Keyword Planner.

The algorithm is the following:

1 2

Sign in to your Google account and open Choose Search for new keywords
theKeyword Planner; option;

4 3

You will get the list of keywords related to this niche In the dropdown field enter the name of your
with approximate amount of Google searches for drop shipping niche, for example dogs collars
each one. By defaults the date range is 12 months, andclick Get ideas button at the bottom;
butyoucan set your own range on the left sidebar.
If a keyword has something between 10K and 100K searches, it is the perfect result for a drop shipping niche, as it
has some demand but it doesnt exceed the sensible limits. If there are more than 100K searches,the niche is too
wide and the competition will be simply monstrous. If there are less than 5K searches, skip to the next niche option:
this one probably has neither competition nor profit.

We personally rate the results the following way:

If there are 5K-50K searches, the score we assign to this drop shipping niche is 5* since its perfect in terms
ofcompetition;
For 50K-100K the score is 4* the competition is great, but there still might be a place for you;
For 5K searches the score is 3* the niche is all yours, but theres no profit in it;
For 100K the score is 2* the competition is too high, no chances to win.

You can see that Google Keyword Planner has only 3 ranges, therefore we advise you to look through the list of
related keywords it provides for your query. If there are a lot of keywords with 10-100K searches, it is probably
between 50-100K in our scale; if there are mostly 1-10K, it is closer to 5K-50K in our scale.

During the next step, you need to conduct a manual research and get an insight into the niche and your probable
competitors. In order to do that, open Google search page, enter the following query in the search field and click
search:

allinurl:niche name (for example:


allinurl:knitting)

As the result, Google will show you the


pages that have that keyword in their
URL, which is a competitive advantage for
them.

Look at the number of pages Google


shows and that will give you a rough idea
of the competition in the drop shipping
niche.

We personally rate the results the following way:

If there are 10K-100K pages, the score we assign to this niche is 5* since its perfect in terms of competition;
For 3K-10K pages the score is 4* youll have to work hard to win the competition but it will be worth it;
For 3K pages the score is 3* the competition is pretty low but profits are not high;
For 100K the score is 2* the competition is too high, no chances to win.

We can also recommend using special services likeKeyword Explorerby Moz. Youll need to register with Moz and
youll be granted access to this tool.

Just enter your keyword to the search field and click try free. This wonderful tool will estimate the keyword
competition in real figures and provide extremely valuable information on the competition in the niche.
Here is how the results for knitting look like:

As you can see, this tool analyses whether its difficult to work effectively in such a competition, shows your
opportunities and the potential of entering this niche. Even though all these criteria are crucial, we first of all look
at the Difficulty parameter as it lets us know if the competition in this niche is fine for us. We personally rate the
results the following way:

If Difficulty reaches the mark of 0-40, the score we assign to this niche is 5*;
For 41-60 the score is 4*;
For 61-80 pages the score is 3*;
For 81-100 the score is 2*.

We advise you to research everything this tool suggests. But remember that this is a limited version since its free,
however it is exactly enough to evaluate a few niche options.

The last step of our evaluation is the


manual analysis of search engine results
pages. To understand your potentialSEO
competition with hugeretailers, just enter
your niche keyword in Google search
field and explore the results on the first
2 pages.
If the whole first page is taken by such behemoths as Amazon, eBay and others there is a really slim chance
that you will have any profit in this niche. It will be really hard to compete with these giants who get 90% of all the
customers. What is left brings no profit.

If the results include not your competitors but some services like Yahoo!Answers or some spammy articles (such
resources are called Easy Target), this means that the niche is free and youd better grab the chance to take it.

If the 1stpage is mainly taken by giants but there are up to 4 places taken by Easy Target results, the score we
assign to this niche is 5* this is the most preferable result where you can get a good spot in the competition and
enjoy good profits;
If the 1stpage is fully taken by giants, the score is 4* the competition is extremely high and your chances are
rather slim;
If the majority of the results on the 1stpage are Easy Target, the score is 3* you can win the competition but
profits wont be worth it;
If the 1stand 2ndpages are taken by giants, the score is 2* your chances for a commercially successful venture
are insignificantly low.
Drop shipping niche selection:

what niches to avoid?

There are some specific niches that should be approached with great caution. We recommend you to think twice
if you want to try them.

Items that are usually carefully Items that can possibly experience

sophisticated electronics, footwear, a postal service and transferred through
exquisite clothing, etc. When we buy customs.Knives, fishing and hunting guns,
such products in regular brick-and-mortar bows and arrows, etc. can be classified as
shops, we try them out first and make questionable goods by a postal service and
sure they suit us by all parameters. If you customs; therefore it is vital to check their

experience some difficulties with ordering requirements vary in different countries, so
the right modification from the first time. take some time to learn more about these
issues in your target region.

Items that can get damaged during Large and heavy items. Huge packages

when the package is received can be
quite disappointing for the customer and,
therefore, quite harmful for your store
reputation.

This is the exact way we select niches for our clients who want to start their own drop shipping stores. Every
webstore is created based on the results of such an in-depth analysis, and we do our best to make our customers
satisfied with the financial outcome.

This is why we are thrilled to introduce

The Hottest Drop Shipping Niches for 2017!


The most curious trends of this year can be used
as attractive AliExpress drop shipping niche ideas. Give them a try!

Droneaccessories

Unmanned aerial vehicles, also known as drones, are seeing a tremendous boost of popularity. PwC consultants
expect drone industry to be worth $127 billion by 2020. Drones bring us lots of fun. But, as a complicated piece of
equipment, they require special maintenance. It means the emerging niche of drone accessories can turn out to
be quite lucrative!

There exist lots of types of drone accessories that you can easily find on AliExpress. We dont recommend selling
drones themselves since they cost a lot, and their safe delivery cant always be ensured. Instead, spare parts and
accessories will be your best bet. They are light and small, so they can be shipped to any destination on the globe
with no risk of damage. And their price is low, so you can set a good markup.

For example, there is a wide range of items designed to protect your drone from various damages during
transportation and use. Think of carrying cases that safely house a drone along with all the accessories. Also, take
a look at propellers and propeller guards that help your drone fly easily and safely. It will also be a good idea to sell
such items as micro SD cards, LED lighting gears, landing pads, etc.
Accessories for iPhone and Apple Watch

As you probably know, the constructional design of almost every new iPhone is different from the previous
versions. It means that the owners of the newest models usually need some very specific phone cases, screen
protectors, etc. All these items can be found on AliExpress for a fraction of the cost which makes them perfect for
drop shipping business.

The same goes for Apple Watch accessories. You can easily find stylish and affordable straps, wireless earphones,
chargers, stands, and docking stations on AliExpress.

VR accessories
Ericsson ConsumerLab research shows that 70% of information on the Internet exists in the video format. Analysts
agree that the fastest growing form of video traffic is VR, or virtual reality. According to Cisco, this industry will grow
61 times in the period between 2015 and 2020! That means VR is a wonderful niche with a huge potential.

Again, VR headsets themselves are technically complicated items. Still, you can benefit from this niche if you
research the VR accessories market. It has an incredible potential because it is very young, and it goes through a
rapid innovation.

These accessories include VR backpacks, smart gloves, various movement solutions, devices providing hand and
arm tracking, etc. Even more interesting concepts are expected to appear on the market really soon. Dont miss the
