be successful as a dropship seller on eBay This is nonsense There most certainly is a way and in fact there are many successful eBay dropship sellers who are making a very nice living at it But there have been many who tried it and failed and many more no doubt who will try it in the future and fail miserably So what is the difference between these two groups of eBay dropship sellers the success stories and the failures What does one group do that the other doesn t Are the successful eBay dropshippers privy to a secret that others don t know about The secret is what the successful ones do and perhaps even more importantly what they DON T do The thing about eBay is that you don t get a lot of room for mistakes especially when you are first starting out There is a very narrow margin for error and a few feedbacks will be enough to sink your eBay ship if you flub up right from the begging Here are 5 common mistakes made by eBay dropship sellers who end up being unsuccessful 1 They don t provide good images Your pictures have to clearly show a shopper what you are selling so they need to be good enough to enable the person to make an informed buying decision If you plaster poor quality blurry or otherwise crummy images on eBay of your products forget it You won t succeed 2 They don t provide good descriptions Everything mentioned above about images goes for descriptions too Your descriptions should tell a viewer everything they need to know about your product For example if you are selling shoes and neglect to mention what size they are who do you think is going to buy them 3 They don t answer questions from potential buyers Let s face it despite all of the disruptive change of the last few years and efforts to rid eBay of bad sellers there are still some to be found on the site Some are probably not so much bad as just stupid or ignorant Be that as the case may be there are a lot of buyers who have been burned by purchasing an item that was not as described

purpose But those days are gone Sellers are unable to leave buyers anything except positive feedback So holding out on leaving feedback until after the buyer does really makes no sense and it antagonizes a lot of buyers You catch more flies with honey than vinegar 5 They don t download tracking info Hopefully you are doing business with a wholesale product source for your dropship items that furnishes tracking numbers Some dropship eBay sellers simply can t be bothered to post this info to the site so that the buyer knows their widget is on its way This is bad business and will cost

to your success as an eBay dropship seller and learning how to use it to its best advantage will go along way toward making your home ecommerce business successful and profitable First of all if you are just getting your feet wet in the ecommerce pool and maybe not entirely sure what SEO is here is a simple definition of SEO straight from that free online encyclopedia Wikipedia Search engine optimization SEO is the process of improving the visibility of a website or a web page in a search engine s natural or un paid organic search results In general the earlier or higher ranked on the search results page and more frequently a site appears in the search results list the more visitors it will receive from the search engine s users SEO may target different kinds of search including image search local search video search academic search news search and industry specific vertical search engines As an Internet marketing strategy SEO considers how search engines work what people search for the actual search terms or keywords typed into search engines and which search engines are preferred by their targeted audience Optimizing a website may involve editing its content HTML and associated coding to both increase its relevance to specific keywords and to remove barriers to the indexing activities of search engines Promoting a site to increase the number of backlinks or inbound links is another SEO tactic So you can see that the whole idea of SEO is to make your website or your dropship listings on eBay search engine friendly so that they will be easily found Here are some fantastic tips from the eBay Learning Center about SEO Target the right keywords and keyword phrases Use keywords frequently throughout content without spamming It s important that your content reads naturally to others Do not duplicate content Include keywords at the top and bottom of your content Use fonts and formatting to emphasize selected words and avoid invisible copy H1 H2 and H3 tags are great ways to achieve this Targeting the right keywords and keyword phrases simply means that you should use those in your titles and descriptions For example if you are dropship plus size nightgowns be sure to use those words in your titles and product descriptions Not duplicating content is another thing to be conscious of as the search engines frown on this If you are selling several variations of a product write a fresh description for each item instead of the same one with only the color or whatever changed Hyperlinking is a very important part of great SEO for your eBay dropshipping sales For example if you are dropshipping basketball equipment you might use this phrase within your description for a basketball goal Check out my great deals on basketball equipment with the word basketball hyperlinked to your store listings Using proper SEO will be quite beneficial to you not only with the eBay Cassini search engine but with Google and the other big search engines as well that crawl the internet looking for content EBay has a ton of traffic but chances are that you will have a lot of competition so being smart about SEO will help give you that

buyer isn t happy they can file a dispute with eBay or Paypal and usually get their money back very quickly with a minimum of fuss and bother You won t scare off the scammers and crooks that are out to cheat you because they get the benefit of the doubt with Paypal and eBay by virtue of being the customer All you will succeed in doing is scaring away good buyers who wouldn t have caused you a

reason that if a buyer isn t happy they can file a dispute with eBay or Paypal and usually get their money back very quickly with a minimum of fuss and bother You won t scare off the scammers and crooks that are out to cheat you because they get the benefit of the doubt with Paypal and eBay by virtue of being the customer All you will succeed in doing is scaring away good buyers who wouldn t have caused you a minute s worth of trouble So don t do this Short and sweet should be your guidelines for terms and conditions Avoid these 3 eBay dropshipping mistakes and you can have a lucrative

Powerseller Posted by Amanda Brooke on Sat Jul 27 2013 04 42 PM Tweet If you would love to work from home and be your own boss you might appreciate some dropshipping tips about how to become an eBay Powerseller First of all let s clarify something If you have heard or read any malarkey about how it is impossible to be successful on eBay with the dropshipping business model forget it This is simply not true One thing to bear in mind about information such as this is that much success or failure in any endeavor depends on a variety of factors Just because one person failed with dropshipping on eBay and is now disgruntled and running around shouting from the rooftops how it can t work doesn t mean that another person wouldn t be extremely successful as an eBay dropshipper Frankly some people will fail miserably at just about any undertaking and in the final analysis the failure is nobody s fault but their own Some people have bad work habits and poor work ethics They aren t willing to put in enough time to be successful and don t provide good customer service which is absolutely essential on eBay Those two things by themselves will sink the ship of dropshippers on eBay who are guilty of them The fact is that you can certainly become an eBay Powerseller and Top Rated Seller as well with dropshipping IF you go about it right Here are some do s and don ts of dropshipping on eBay if you want to be a Powerseller and Top Rated Seller Choose your niche carefully Ideally it will be a niche that is in demand but without an inordinately high amount of competition Choose a wholesale dropship product source with high quality products If there is one thing that will bring a screeching halt to your career as an eBay seller it is selling crummy inferior products You will get a lot of negative feedback and Item Not As Described cases filed against you along with a lot of refunds eBay doesn t tolerate a lot of this so you won t get too many strikes before you re out Make sure your product supplier gives you low inventory notices so that you don t oversell This is a really bad thing all year long because customers don t like it But if it happens during the holiday shopping buyers will really be irate and you re going to get negative feedback when you have to cancel their orders Provide excellent customer service Make sure your buyers get tracking info and messages that their item s has shipped If there is a problem be proactive and try to solve it to their satisfaction as soon as possible Be courteous and polite at all times even if the buyer is a stinker You must remain professional Answer questions and messages promptly Don t give your buyers unrealistic expectations about when to expect their item s While you don t have to reveal that it will be dropshipped do be honest and straightforward about when they can reasonably expect it People don t mind that much if it takes a while to get their item if they are forewarned right up front It s when you fudge about the delivery time and have them expect it earlier than it will really reach them that things get ugly Use these dropshipping tips to become an eBay Powerseller

    home business marketing tips to boost dropship sales Actively work at establishing yourself as an authority within your niche You can do this by having well written informative content that demonstrates your knowledge and understanding of your particular niche and products You can also use social media platforms such as Twitter face book and LinkedIn to post authoritative content People tend to look up to businesses that show extensive knowledge about their own niche and it helps to build trust as well which in turn helps to increase sales Use content to promote your dropship home business and build your brand The days of article farming are over thank goodness so the last thing you want to do is plaster the internet with tons of poorly written content that offers little or no value to readers Since the Penguin and Panda algorithm updates this is a great way to get yourself blackballed with Google But you can use high quality content to your best advantage and it will help drive traffic to your website or listings which translates to sales Google loves fresh relevant high quality content The more you provide the higher your rankings in search results will be Since research has shown that the average online shopper rarely goes past the first page of search results you will help your dropship home business tremendously by being on that first page Beef up your opt in email subscription list If you don t have one do it now Email marketing is not only extremely effective it costs nothing if you make it a DIY effort But even if you have to hire someone to write your marketing emails you will gain more than enough in extra sales to offset the cost of a freelancer To sweeten the pot and make visitors to your website willing to opt in to your emails and newsletters you might consider offering a decent incentive such as half price shipping or even free shipping if this is feasible Obviously if you are dropshipping big heavy products free shipping is not the incentive you will want to use Offer great coupons According to Internet Retailer a Morpace market research survey showed that 67 of shoppers have used coupons they downloaded and printed from the web In a survey of 1 000 shoppers in mid February Morpace found that women and consumers with annual household incomes of at least 50 000 were most likely to use web coupons 71 percent of women and 59 of men use coupons from the Internet 71 percent of consumers who make more than 50 000 a year use them compared with 61 of shoppers who make less than 50 000 The moral of this little story is that most people love and use coupons So tempt them into shopping with you by offering valuable coupons You don t have to give away the store and remember sometimes you have to spend a little money to make money Develop a good understanding of your differentiators and what they mean to customers Even if you are in a highly competitive niche you should be able to find something that sets your dropship business apart from the others Once you determine what your differentiators will be build on them Play it up If you offer free return shipping play it to the hilt For example if what differentiates your dropshipping home business from the others in the pack is superior customer service let your customers know this Bear in mind that your differentiator must be something that is

Dropship Tips Use Daily Deals to Boost Sales Posted by Amanda Brooke on Wed Sep 14 2011 11 16 AM Tweet If you are looking for a new way to boost your dropship or other ecommerce sales you might consider using Daily Deals Daily Deals are the new wave on the internet and many e tail merchants including eBay are offering Daily Deals to entice customers to their website Some websites are all about Daily Deals and nothing else Living Social for example is one such site that is relatively new but has built up a massive base of subscribers in a very short period of time The same applies to Groupon Cool Savings is using Daily Deals and many local newspapers as well Walmart has jumped on the Daily Deals band wagon too Click Here For a FREE eBay E Book That Will Have You Selling like a Pro Here are some stats from emarketer about Daily Deals Users of both sites are more educated than Internet users in general 57 percent of Groupon users and 51 percent of LivingSocial users are in the prime homeowner age groups of 35 to 64 Nearly two thirds of visitors to both sites are female Daily deal users tend to skew toward affluent A separate study by Nielsen found visitors to LivingSocial 49 percent more likely than the average U S Internet user to earn 150 000 or more while Groupon s users were 30 percent more likely A chart from Foresee that breaks things down Why are Daily Deals so popular In a nutshell these promotions appeal to those who love to get in on special deals and save money In these days of continuing high unemployment outrageous fuel prices and escalating costs of everything else that group of people is huge So how could you incorporate Daily Deals into your dropship sales Here are a couple of tips to help you get started Bundled Deals Bundled deals are hot A bundled deal is where you offer an accessory or coordinating product as a go with for another product at a cheaper price than buying each item as a stand alone purchase For example if your niche is electronics and you are dropship selling DVD players you might offer a DVD player along with a DVD cleaner or cleaning kit Loss Leaders Daily Deals are great loss leaders A loss leader is a product that you sell at a rock bottom price for the purpose of attracting traffic to your dropship website or eBay dropship products You might not make any profit on this item so it doesn t need to be anything pricey like a Plasma TV but the whole idea of a loss leader is that you go into it knowing you won t male a lot of money on it just hoping it will drive traffic and then visitors will go on to buy other of your items If you are only dropship selling one product you would probably need to offer more of a selection of products in order to run Daily Deals It would be best to stick to items within your niche but isn t strictly necessary Try using Daily Deals to drive traffic to your ecommerce dropship website and boost sales If you liked this article you may also like this one Dropship

May 08 2011 11 16 AM Tweet eBay has had some problems during the past few years but it is still the biggest game in town for online auctions and there is still a lot of money to be made there with wholesale dropshipping What is wholesale dropshipping Basically wholesale dropshipping means that you are getting the products to sell on eBay through a wholesale dropship product source and then selling them at retail prices on eBay Get FREE Valuable Information About Successful Selling on eBay But although you can make a bundle this way it is advisable to look before you leap There are certain factors to take into consideration that will play a pivotal role in the success or failure of your career as an eBay dropshipper Here are a few tips to help you be successful with wholesale dropshipping on eBay Do your homework Before you slap some auctions up there on eBay take the time to find out which products have a great sell through rate This depends on the rule of supply and demand which simply means that you will make more sales if you are supplying an item that is in great demand You can make money with fewer sales if you are selling something that is less in demand but with a very high profit ratio of course But for the most part stick with products that a lot of shoppers want Check the eBay Pulse for a bird s eye view of hot products that are much in demand Choose a wholesale product source that can be depended on to ship promptly and then be upfront with your customers about shipping times Don t give an estimated date of arrival as one or two days if you are reasonably sure it will take a bit longer than that Most buyers are fine with shipping times as long as the seller doesn t mislead them about when to expect the item Always choose a dropship product source that will let you know when stock is running low or an item is out of stock Some buyers will have a really bad reaction to buying and paying for an item then being told they aren t going to get it after all In fact some of them are likely to leave negative feedback and ding a sellers ratings and a little of that will get you suspended from selling quickly So an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure Don t oversell Those are just a few things you should do before getting started in wholesale dropshipping on eBay Bear in mind that there are dropship sellers on eBay making six figure

worry about getting a less than glowing review of your products from time to time The good reviews showing on the page will outweigh those and help influence shoppers to convert to buyers Use these
