Dropshipping is hard to compete & keep up with, in 2019.

And one of the main key points that will make is successful is the right product.

Now there are many ways you can find a product, but before we dive into that let me tell you many people sell products according to their likes & dislikes & many sell a problem-solving product.

Now what I mean by that is many people sell fashion items, luxury items & many of them are problem-solving product.

Remember one thing

If your product is for everyone, your product is for no one.

So Let’s Start!

#1) Finding the Right product for you

Ask yourself what product you would like to sell.

What niche would you like to be in?

What are you good at? Do you have any knowledge around that product or niche?

Once you answer all the questions yourself. You can either go with a niche or just a dropshipping product.

Now you would ask what’s the difference between selling a niche product & a typical dropshipping product.

I have seen 2 types of people in dropshipping.

The first person sells a product that is a problem solver but limited to the trend. That person sells that product for 2-3 months. Retargets the shit out of that product & closes the store after a hefty product of around 100k-200k

The second person is the person who opens a niche store such as a pet store or anything. He sells a product that is a problem-solver, a gift may be or custom products who are purchased by passionate customers in that niche.

The first makes a 100k quick & moves on to a new store whereas the seconds stays in there for a long term and makes a name in community & once established it becomes easier & easier to sell in a niche store.

You decide which person you want to be. Keep in mind both options are hard. But my advise would be going with the second one because the first store has a high probability of failing.

#2) Product Analysis

So once you decide you are going to sell long term niche items or quick sell dropshipping items, you need to find a great product.

Find items that are problem-solver, have a niche or community for that product market & people are passionate about that.

If you can find all the three qualities in one product, then you my friend got a jackpot because there are not many products with all 3 qualities in them.

Download & fill out the cheat sheet below & by the time you fill out the pdf, you will have an idea about your product.

You don’t have to sell a product that has all the 3 qualities but make sure you sell a problem solver product if possible, because people pay to eliminate a problem from there lives.

The second way to see if the product sells wells is to check the sales of that product on Ali Express.

You can visit AliExpress Dropshipping Center & you can do any product analysis, just put the link of the product in the product analysis tab & you will see the all-time sales of that product

#3) Customers

Before dropshipping a should know your customer metrics like who is your product for? What group of people will use your product? What is the typical age of your potential customer?

Finding a customer metric beforehand will not only save a hell lot of time but will also make you open to new customer metrics as you go on.

And as you start Facebook ads you will directly target your potential customers because you already have your customer metrics & because of that it will also save you a lot of money on ads testing.

Finding your niche – A Great Product – And Customer Metrics are the three most important things you can do if you want to jump-start your dropshipping store. I have mentioned many times before that niche is the most important thing that people need to focus on.

I have seen many people sell pants & watches at the same store and they ask me How can I find the best products on AliExpress for dropshipping?

There is no best product to sell.

There is a best way to sell every product. Focus on that. Focus on Trustablilty of your store & make sure you don’t sell pants & paintings at the same store, because as a customer I would not buy from that store.

#4) Testing the Product

If going through all of this and if you still have a doubt about a product all you need to do is pick a product & put it on a page

To determine if there is actual demand for these swimming cars here’s the first thing you need to do.

Create a simple landing page that tells people what your potential product is, why it’d make a positive difference in their life. Then, ask visitors a simple question: “Hey, you want to buy this?”

How can I find the best products on AliExpress for dropshipping?

Muck Rack’s homepage, for instance, is a strong example of a straightforward, but effective, landing page.

And yes, you’ll want to do this even if you only have an idea. Just make sure to write this landing page as if your product already exists. I’ll explain why you would want to do that in a bit, but first, a warning.

You’ll almost certainly be tempted at this point to do something amazing. To create the most incredible landing page in history.

You must have seen many eComm businesses marketing their product but when we land on their page to buy, it’s out of stock.

It’s a very cool strategy to test out products & if more than 10% of your landing page visitors signup to join the mailing list to buy the product. You’ve got yourself a winner.


If I have to narrate this blog in one line I would say – ” Sell the product, you’d like to buy” Its the easiest explanation. If you don’t like the product, then how could you expect your customers to like it? Sell a problem-solving product that has a passionate community around it & you will be good to go.

Don’t make this blog a big deal in your decision making, I trust you & you will have to trust yourself.

Mistakes happen, but try to sell a product as I mentioned in the blog & you’ll thank yourself.

And next time someone asks you – How can I find the best products on AliExpress for dropshipping?
