There are many different methods used to effectively promote dropshipped items. Following are just a few:

  • Online Storefronts
  • Internet Auctions
  • Message Boards
  • Newsgroups
  • Banner Advertising
  • Search Engine Promotion
  • Physical Retail Storefronts (with sample quantities)
  • Mail Order Catalogs
  • Flea Markets
  • Saturday & “Farmers” Markets
  • Trade Shows
  • Bazaars
  • Fund Raisers
  • House-Warming Parties
  • Personal Hand-Out Catalogs
  • “Freebie” Promotions
  • Radio & Television

When you sell an item to a customer, you will log onto you supplier’s website and create an actual order. When they receive payment from you, the item will be pulled and dropshipped directly to your customer. The label on the package will be a BLIND LABEL, meaning it will not have a FROM name, just a Fulfillment Center address. Also, some dropship distributors include a custom packing slip with your contact information included.

As a Dropship Reseller, the most effective methods of product promotion are the following: online storefronts,
internet auctions, retail storefronts, and printed catalogs.
