Who to consider for holiday-appropriate dropship products

The holidays are the jolliest of times, and everyone is considering getting unique gifts to show appreciation for their loved ones. It's only logical to think that everyone is looking for gifts, but for ads, targeting everyone is not a good idea. So, how do you do it? Here are some tips to consider:

  • Follow the niches. To find trending products to sell online, you need to be following the niches. If you are part of their communities, you'll notice when something catches on, and some could be products you can add to your store. This will make it easier to find similar people to target and at the same time will give you insights about new products.
  • Use lookalike audiences. If you already found a type of customer interested in, let's say, gadgets and electronics, and you are promoting a new product in this area, the easiest way to expand your customer base will be to use lookalike audiences to find more potential customers.  
  • Cover all your bases depending on the category of products. For example, you already know most parents want to surprise their kids for the holidays, so you won't forget to target them when promoting toys and childcare products. But you can also add grandparents, aunts, and uncles as they are likely to buy toys for nieces and nephews as well.

Recommended products to add to your store

These categories of products are mainstays, so make sure you include some in your store before the holidays start.

Pet accessories 

When the pandemic hit, many people adopted furry friends to keep them company. Pet owners are ready to spend money to ensure their pets are the happiest of them all, and they include some of the best-selling items of dropship. Include pet clothing like dog jackets, toys, collars, leashes, feeding and watering supplies, etc.     

Holiday decorations 

For most people, celebrating the holidays includes decorating their homes and yards with Christmas lights, inflatables, ornaments, gift boxes, clothes, and every kind of Christmas decoration you can think of. Make sure you have some of them in your store in time for the festivities.    

Home & kitchen appliances

The interest to have a fully automated house continues to increase, so it’s no surprise products such as vacuum cleaners, led lights, smart plugs, smart bulbs, temperature sensors, and smart wall switches are very popular.

Optimize your listings

For your product descriptions, consider your audience. What words do they use? Not only to find the product but to communicate? What kind of humor do they like? Once you clearly understand their terms, use them to create fun product descriptions that enticingly show the product's benefits. 

For example: Instead of saying "Comfortable casual slides made with EVA foam," try something like, "Yes! These are the comfiest slides you've seen all over TikTok. Made with EVA foam, they make you feel like you are walking on clouds while giving your feet enough support for everyday wear. Get them here." 

Pro tip: Keep your eyes peeled for TikTok trends. Many dropship products go viral in an instant, and if you are promoting them at the same time, you'll have a sure-fire hit!
