As you may already know, the whole point of the online dropshipping business is to find your winning product.
There isn’t just one, or a billion of them: there are many, and they change according to the seasons and trends. That’s why it’s important to stay informed and update your knowledge on this topic every day.
And even if it seems complex at first glance, you’ll quickly get the hang of it. So to make your dropshipping adventure a successful one, discover the best tools dedicated to this lucrative online business!
The right questions to find the winning product
- What problems were you trying to solve? Other than money, what motivates you to open your online store? How do you want to help your potential customers?
- Who do you talk to? What is your background and how can you use it in dropshipping? What sales strategy will you adopt? If you decide to resell sets of 5 pans with removable handles, for example, you will solve a cook’s problem.
- Why does your item stand out? What makes it a winner? Why would visitors want to give it to their friends and family?
- Who will you work with? Where will you find your suppliers?
- What margins do you expect to make? What is your initial budget? How much will your winning product cost?
Dropshipping is accessible to everyone, but you have to know how to organize yourself and clarify your idea.
I advise you to take some time to answer these questions with a sheet of paper and a pencil (or a word processor of some kind). Your answers will most likely give you some profitable niche leads to exploring.
And if you already have a winning product idea in mind, now it’s time to validate it.
To do this, I’m going to teach you how to analyze the market in-depth. Facebook, Amazon, Aliexpress, Alibaba: find out how to master these platforms to make them your assets. This way, you will quickly know if your selected product has a chance to become a winning item or not.
With this in mind, I invite you to discover the 6 most advanced tools to find your little gold mine.
The winning product: the 7 best tools to find it
On the internet, many entrepreneurs have created genius solutions to help you become a great reseller. After doing a lot of research, I’ve put together a list of 6 tools that I think are the most reliable and comprehensive. They will help you find your winning products and add them to your dropshipping online store.
I often talk to you about this 100% dropshipping and French solution in my articles on online sales without stock, and it’s not for nothing!
This company does everything possible to help entrepreneurs to start this business and succeed.
Between training offered, features included at no extra cost, coach at your disposal, … It is the solution that is for me, the closest to its customers. To come back to the main topic, Dropizi offers a chrome extension, available here, which allows you to find a winning product with the help of AliExpress.
As soon as you activate the extension and want to browse the Chinese marketplace, a note is displayed under each product. This note allows you to know whether or not the product can be interesting for resale. It is based on customer ratings, the number of orders, delivery time, etc.
So you can easily find products with great ratings to give you ideas of winning products.
To use it, you can sign up for Dropizi for free for 15 days and enjoy the test period. To test, you don’t need a credit card. So take advantage of it!
Nothing obliges you to use AliExpress as a supplier, you can also find the product in question at other partners in Europe or France.
When I discovered this platform, I was instantly charmed!
Through an ergonomic, fluid, and modern interface, you will find products with high potential (the creators of the site call them “hot” items, hence its name…).
Their catalog is updated daily to offer you items that are all the rage while adapting to the current season and the country you are in.
The products they showcase go like hotcakes on the web.
I strongly recommend you to visit them. In addition, the site offers many tools to help you stay ahead of your competitors including :
- An audience building tool
- An engagement calculator
- A rewards system based on the subscription period
- Dropshipping training
- Access to video editing software to quickly create your own test videos
This solution is so complete and accessible that its price is well justified.
There are three packages available:
- The basic,
- The elite (almost always on sale),
- And the pro.
As you can imagine, they will give you access to more or fewer options. In any case, the Hotproducts team is available 24/7 to answer your questions. Do not hesitate to contact them! This can be reassuring, especially for those who are just starting out.
The site also offers you an array of digital marketing training resources. A must-have that you can test freely during 7 days. Take advantage of it!
The reason I mention Ecomhunt in third place is that their offering is more or less similar to Hotproducts.
They add new high potential products every day. Their product sheets are very detailed and allow you to get a clear idea of the targeted niche.
In addition to that, various features are offered like:
- New winning products every day
- An access search engine on the products of your sector
- The achievable margin and the estimated profit
- Creative videos and visuals to use in your ads
- Information on trends, searches, quantity sold per the buyer
- Typical target Facebook audience
In my opinion, this application focuses on your needs and expectations.
It has another great feature: it offers you a list of Instagram influencers related to the product. It’s up to you to contact them afterward to ask them to promote your products!
By the way, you can do your research yourself and apply this tip on your own. This solution is very effective to obtain an instantaneous strong increase in the sale of your products.
The undeniable advantage of Ecomhunt is that it offers a free package.
It limits you to 2 products per day and gives you access to limited product listing data, but it’s a great start to getting inspired.
For those who are already ready to upgrade to the paid plan, note that it costs 27 euros per month. An amount that will pay for itself, believe me!
AdSpy is different from its competitors, as the platform searches and finds for you the most popular Facebook and Instagram ads of the moment by Internet users.
Numerous filters will allow you to make incredibly advanced searches. By using this tool, you’ll also be able to:
- Monitor competing brands (and get inspired by them…)
- Analyze what works globally (and find similarities for France…)
- Search ads based on what matters most to you (by keyword, age, gender, or country)
- Discover new compelling campaigns (and if you find them compelling, so will your future customers!)
- Discover the latest successful products!
This platform is one of the most complete in my opinion.
By the way, it is also the most expensive in terms of price.
It is about 130 euros per month. Accessible only to those who have decided to invest a lot of money to get quantified results very quickly!
This software is very useful to source your products efficiently, create single product stores or landing pages! It will allow you to find winning products thanks to Facebook by following a very precise recipe. Its main advantage is that it is very easy to use.
Once you are on the platform, all you have to do is type in keywords and queries related to your product or niche. At this point, feel free to add other words like “free product”, “free shipping” or “learn more”.
You can then filter the results by videos, images, etc. D-nicheur will provide you with a crisp list of winning (or upcoming) products.
It will sort out very easily between Facebook search results and sponsored posts for example. This step is fundamental to get a very clear vision of the latest trends and high potential products.
In terms of pricing, there are two monthly offers: the first one at €19.95 and the second at €29.95
Both offer winning products every day. The cheaper offer offers one winning item per day and is still very affordable for the profit you will make.
This tool is specifically designed for Facebook. If you are interested in the same search for Amazon, Jungle Roots or Egrow are two very interesting solutions. Udan set is ideal for natural referencing.
6) Seller Pulse
It is important to note that this tool is both accurate and reliable. You don’t need to be a dropshipping expert to master it.
It is a product developed in France that will provide you with relevant estimates of product sales. It will also calculate for you the available stocks on all marketplaces in real-time.
For the sale of the best products as well as for the stock status, the tool provides you with a 3-week history. You are free to choose the period over which you wish to study the sales of your favorite item.
Two versions are available.
The first one is for Aliexpress (more adapted to dropshipping) and the second one is for Amazon. As my article is aimed at dropshippers (beginners as well as advanced), I will not dwell on the second offer.
On the platform dedicated to AliExpress, you can easily search for a product in a given category or combine different categories.
The free version lasts only 3 days and will limit you to 40 searches. The paid version costs 34 euros per month. You can then have access to all its features ad infinitum, such as its system of search curves.
If you click on the curve icon, you will see the price curve of the product, the number of orders per day, total orders, and the number of feedbacks from buyers.
You will also find all the stores that sell this product as well as the suppliers Amazon, Alibaba, Aliexpress, and WordPress sites.
7) Centre de dropshipping AliExpress
In the “dropshipping center” section of AliExpress, you can easily get many winning products classified by niches.
In order to help you quickly get the hang of this tool, here is an explanation of its different tabs:
- “Hot SD Item”: offers a list of products that work best in dropshipping at the moment.
- “Product Analysis”: paste your product’s Aliexpress link in this section to automatically obtain the daily order volume of the product.
- “Just for you”: offers a list of winning products that match your niche if you have already placed orders on the site. Isn’t that convenient?
In my opinion, this tool is very easy to use.
Plus, all you have to do is create a free account on Aliexpress. With all these state-of-the-art sourcing tools, I hope you’ll have all the information you need to start searching for your winning product!
In any case, I encourage you to be curious, visit all of these software sites, and make up your mind.
Without these aids, you risk wasting a lot of time and being far behind your competitors in performance.
The right questions to ask yourself are:
- “How long will I stay on the site?”,
- “How much money will I make with it?”,
- “Which interface is my favorite?”.
Indeed, even if each tool has its main features, you have the right to prefer one in particular.
