Do you want to learn how to start a drop-shipping business with no money? I’m talking $0. Get ready to learn how to get started drop-shipping with no money, so you can start hearing those Shopify dings in your sleep.
Launching Your Dropshipping Business
The first thing you need to understand about launching a drop-shipping store is that there are really only two avenues to explore. Honestly, this is true for a lot of online businesses, but walk with me. Avenue number one is going to take an investment of money. That means that you’re going to launch your store and invest money running paid traffic to your website. That could be Google ads, Facebook ads, print ads, radio ads, or billboards. With avenue two, you’re going to invest something even more precious and that is time. If you have no money to get started, you better have an abundance of time. Time to build your site, DIY style and time to push organic traffic to your store. When I first started drop-shipping, I had no money at all, but I did have a lot of time. So I can tell you all about that method. Now here are the steps to actually launch in your drop-shipping store.
Step 1: Start a Free Shopify Trial
Shopify has a 14-day free trial that you don’t even have to put a credit card in to use. This allows you a full two weeks to acclimate yourself to the platform, and have an active store, where people can place orders and you can make sales without even having to pay for their monthly plan.
Step 2: Choose your dropshipping products
What do you want to sell? Why is that a good choice for you? The options are legit limitless. You could sell everything from bicycles to baby products. What products do you think you can uniquely market to get paid?
Step 3: Find a dropshipping supplier
There are suppliers who exclusively sell to drop-shippers, and that’s where you want to start your journey. Find a supplier that’s been in business a significant amount of time, specializes in what you want to sell, and our B2B suppliers, meaning that they don’t make most of their money, if any really, on business to consumer sales.
Step 4: Promote your brand
Market, market and market some more. As a DIY no budget drop-shipper, you should be spending every waking hour marketing your brand across organic marketing channels and, of course, social media. Just don’t spend all your time building a beautiful store and not nearly enough time marketing it. That is a massive rookie mistake. And remember this, if you remember nothing else, the best marketer wins.
