There is nothing more than I'd like to announce that eBay is booming with buyer traffic, but sadly, it's just the opposite.
Those of us who remember how easy it was to sell dropshipped products in the past, today with eBay's recent Q2 Reports of their earnings being up (from Seller Fee increases), it's traffic (buyer) growth is at ZERO.
Yes...ZERO with no Marketing Plans to increase, compared to Amazon Q2 Report of a healthy 20% growth.
With all the consistent buyers unable to pay or even see listings, so-called glitches, more increased seller fees and on Oct. 1st's Managed Payment coming, it's hit eBay Dropship Sellers...right in the pocketbook!
Last month, many DropShip eBay Seller's have seen a slight sales increase from their efforts of promoting listings in social media platforms or playing the game of opening multiple new accounts, just to be seen by more buyers that lasts about 3 Months until traffic slows down again.
So what are eBay DropShip Sellers doing?
Expanding their business across other Selling Platforms, starting with Shopify Lite ($9/mo),targeting their audience, narrowed down to selling Niche Product-lines. Yes, it means more initial effort, but the way I see it, if your going to put forth your efforts to increase sales revenue, you might as well do it where buyers are plentiful.
Yes... for many without a Marketing Strategy to know what direction you are going and how to do it.
Following the KISS Theory (Keep It Simple Stupid)...I like to keep things simple to avoid becoming overwhelmed, by performing one-step at a time and just follow simple instructions:
Step 1. Find Profitable Niche Product-lines in High-Demand and Low Competition & Define your Target Audience.
Step 2. Setup your Shopify Store.
Step 3. List your Niche Product-lines from DropShip Suppliers Service Providers ie: DsmTool, WholeSale2B or Sku-Grid.
Step 4. Focus on marketing your Store in your favorite Social Media Network...without paid advertising!
At this point, with automated services to process and ship orders, your main focus will be:
"Success doesn't just happen...You have to go out and get it!"
