AliExpress is a very popular dropshipping website that many of the drop shipping veterans use finding a popular product on AliExpress is no easy feet. Most of the products are highly commoditized. But finding a viral product can be very lucrative and rewarding
First lets define dropshipping: Dropshipping refers to selling a product that you do not stock or ship. The steps are simple: You find a product on AliExpress that you want to sell and mark it up. Create a funnel to sell it, drive traffic to the funnel and submit the order to the supplier. The supplier will then ship the order to the customer, without the customer knowing that the product came from the supplier. Instead it all appears to come from you.
Step 1: The Landing Page
Most funnels selling products are very similar. They have, a landing page that tells a story and displays an unforgettable offer. Some get the information inputted on the first page to buy – name, email, address, credit card etc. In the below image we have an incredible offer on a infusion water bottle that has already peaked their interest from the advert we enticed them in from (we prefer to use Facebook). Once they click submit on the first page we have all their details and have charged them for the order of the hydration bottle/s.
Step 2: The Upsell page
Next you will go to an upsell page. This is where you margin up! Simply put all upsells or downsells should come from the same supplier. Why you ask, well now you only have to pay for shipping once. Give them options to buy multiples and offer discounts. Remember a product that costs you $1 that you can upsell for $10 on top of the original offer just made you another $9 in profit. If this is where you had your lightbulb moment, well we did too! The amazing part is they already have purchased the hydration bottle. So by adding the upsell items they simply click on the offer and hit add to cart and it charges the same account. EASY HA?
Step 3: Upsell number 2
But wait… if you call now we slap them with another irresistible offer. what about an ice tray that makes long cubes? surely you need ice for a water bottle. Great another 1 click away from a nice little additional profit and all from the same supplier for that 1 shipping fee.
Step 4: Order Confirmation Page
Finally you show them the order confirmation page with all the items that they have already purchased. They cant back out now.. its already done!
This is a pretty easy way to test products from AliEpress and see what works. In one of our later posts we will go into how to drive traffic from Facebook.
