Dropshipping Store In Passionate Niche For Sale
I ran the store for a little over a month and made 140 sales. Most of the sales were free + shipping offers.
The unicorn niche is just genius. The products have amazing visual appeal, and millions of passionate fans on Facebook that are easy to target. They want to show the world that they not only LOVE unicorns but also ARE unicorn, as strange as that may sound for some.
I'm pretty sure we had the best free+shipping offer in this entire niche.
It was profitable until I had technical trouble with the Paypal button. When people couldn't buy through paypal the sales went a little down, about 20-30%.
In the middle of frustration of trying to fix it, I realized dropshipping is not my thing. I'm running a Youtube comedy channel with 240,000 subscribers, and I feared that the channel would die if I kept putting this much focus on dropshipping. Maybe it's just the fear of success kicking in. Anyway, I'm not techie, and I don't want to sell stuff I don't have personal interest in. So I stopped running ads three months ago and changed focus to rather create a business out of my comedy channel.
I think the business was close to be truly profitable, and the niche is big enough for large scaling. I talked to an ecom expert (Marco from the Youtube channel "The eCom Project") about a week before I stopped. He believed in the store. We chatted for an hour on Facebook and I can send you the tips he gave me to make the store a winner. I was ready to implement the tips, and when I started I realized that Dropshipping will be a good moneymaker, but I knew it would take too much energy from my Youtube career.
