At that point you surely now your intended competitors, so its time to learn how to compete with them. To illustrate if you get misunderstand, beating means spare efforts and time to do better than your competitors in another dropshipping store.
For example Lenovo laps versus Dell.
The previous example is just to understand what I’m talking about, Its not necessary to be a big brand to compete. If you are eager to learn who to be in the head of Dropshipper companions, let’s do it!
1- Be unique:
Being monotonous and undistinguished in your dropshipping store, you are so likely to fail because you are not unique.
There are so many people learning about dropshipping and starting dropshipping stores right now.
For example, type in Google Trends “Dropshipping”.
Do you see how popular dropshipping is?
All are interested in establishing their dropshipping store as it’s an easy way to earn money online. But the most disappointing thing is that they don’t work hard or spare any time or effort into their dropshipping store. They just open their store, import tier products and that’s it without any creativity in changing or marketing.
That can result in a high similarity with other drop shippers delivering the products with the same descriptions and maybe the same suppliers in dropshipping.
I know its defiantly that products get similar sometimes which is not bad when similarity reaches the images and descriptions it becomes totally bad and not help you!
How to be more unique than other dropshipping stores out there?
Don’t try to copy everything to save some time!
Here are some great tips to be more unique (I will link to the article that will learn you to do that.
Create your own product images: having your own unique images is not a difficult thing, by using the new Glorify app! So to be unique create your own image so you can compete others with.
Create your own product descriptions: The worst thing is trying to copy the product description that the supplier offer. Be sure that ways won’t help you buy your products more. You can do a unique product description trough learning more about copywriting.
Site design: your site design can be the first catchy thing to attract your costumers. It must be more professional and credible more than your competitors. Also, don’t forget to create all your basic pages like a refund policy.
show videos to the product page: Videos can help your customers make the purchase decision. The nice thing is that 70% of Dropshipper didn’t include videos in their pages, so it’s your chance to be more unique.
Including videos in the product, listings are still a rare practice. But seeing as videos can rocket organic traffic up to 157%, adding product showcases is a no-brainer to get ahead of the competition.
I completely understand that uniqueness takes alit of time and effort if you want to create your own dropshipping store from A.. to ..Z. So I advise you to make and make only 1-3 products perfect.
These products are going to be the first products that you’re going to start advertising with. The rest of the products are there to make your store look alive and real!
In that article, I will explain everything to you about this topic. From why focusing on a few products is the best, and what to do with the rest of your products in the meantime (hint: you’re not going to leave them with the default information your supplier gave you!
2- Make your prices the best:
pricing is a very effective way of competing. An amazing way to beat others is by defining a lower price than others.
For instance, you can sell a product for 20$ instead of 22$.
Do keep in mind that undercutting in price is not always the answer.
3- Show your product ratings and reviews:
Rating and views show the store trust and credibility, studies turned out that 88% of people make their purchase decision based on full customer reviews. and 72% of consumers say positive reviews make them trust businesses more.
Millennials, in particular, trust user-generated content 50% more than other media. The only obstacle is that customers tend to share bad reviews and experiences than good ones.
I recommended you leave a wide space for your customers to shoe their reviews.
4-Go further than your competition:
This tip is about making sure that you go one step further than your competition.
Whatever your competition is doing, up the ante. If they’re selling cotton t-shirts, offer up 100% cotton t-shirts made from local manufacturers that don’t rely on sweatshops.
If they’re selling black t-shirts, add red and green and blue t-shirts to your inventory. The basic message is this: increase the superiority and quality of your market so shoppers have no reason to look elsewhere.
5- Spread internationally:
This is in case your competitor is not dropshipping or is only focusing on a specific country. One of the key strength of your dropshipping store is selling to the whole world. So your supplier takes the charge to send your products to everyone all over the world.
A great way to include shipping to every country especially if your competitors don’t do that and only selling in a specific country as well. This way, you have a chance of getting more customers than them because you’re targeting way more people than them!
6- Show the best customer service:
Providing your customers with a suitable and comfortable service is the most important thing that you must be tuned to offer. And more importantly, you need to do it right!
Start thinking about your customers first, instead of your own pockets. This will definitely help you kick start your dropshipping store and will help you keep it alive as well! Try hard and do your best not to receive bad reviews and feedbacks.
But I know you’re probably skeptical.
That’s why I got some examples below for you. You will see what will happen with your review or Facebook page after giving bad customer service to your customers.
7- Rewarding loyal customers:
The most beautiful and amazing thing for any dropshipping store owner to have loyal customers after a period of hard work. Another way to be the best for your customers is to reward loyal customers.
This way can guarantee your current customers to be returned costumers and keep coming back to your store.
How stunning is that?
7- Faster delivery time:
Please, keep going ahead and complete your progress with trying to provide a faster delivery time than your competitor.
For example, if your competitor is dropshipping with AliExpress and got a delivery time of 2-4 weeks. Then you can beat them by finding a local dropshipping supplier and having a way lower delivery time of a few days!
Always shoe your visitors and your customers all your distinguished key strength. Show that the shipping time only takes a few days.
