[Dropshipping Myth] Why You Need To CREATE Winning Products Yourself




Winning Dropshipping products that automatically sell after uploading them into your Shopify store are a myth. Unfortunately, most Dropshippers think it is not. However, winning products need to be created by marketing them in an enticing way that causes an emotional reaction which makes people buy.

Of course, product research tools like Oberlo, AliShark, Ecomhunt, Pexda, Dropship Spy, Niche Scraper, Asify, Salesource and Intelligynce can be helpful to get new product ideas. Anyway, you should not rely on them too much.

In this YouTube video I am going to show you exactly how to market dropshipping products the right way.


0. The Structure Of This Video

  1. Winning products – expectations vs. reality [2:03]
  2. How a product can be sold in multiple ways (“do not switch products, switch product angles”) [3:37]
  3. Applying 3 consumer psychology strategies [9:50]

1. Winning Products

1.1 Expectations

  1. The goal of Dropshipping is to test as many products as possible until you find one that people automatically buy

1.2 Reality

  1. The goal of Dropshipping is to find a marketing angle on a product that solves a pain point
  2. People buy products because of their benefits

2. How A Single Product Can Be Sold In Multiple Ways

  1. (Most) products have multiple benefits/ reasons to buy them
  2. People buy because of the benefit that appeals to them most
  3. Focus on one marketing angle only
  4. Present your product based on that marketing angle
  5. If your marketing angle is not appealing to enough people, test a different one
  6. Only consider to switch products after every marketing angle failed

3. Applying 3 Consumer Psychology Strategies

3.1 The Imagination Technique

  1. You need to get people to imagine how they use your product in their head
  2. Example:
  3. “Imagine the overwhelming reaction of your boyfriend when he opens the explosion box and sees all photos of your last holiday on Bali. Imagine the way he will look into your eyes and tell you ‘I love you back’.“

3.2 The Power Of Clarity

  1. Clear and simple product descriptions make people read more which increases the chance of persuading them to buy
  2. Use short and simple words and sentences
  3. Include a paragraph after every 2-3 sentences
  4. Embolden the most important words
  5. Use some emojis

3.3 Benefit Specification

  1. Be extremely specific about why your product is the best
  2. Example:
  3. “The explosion box is the best present you have ever seen because it comes from the heart. It is not a gift that you quickly buy and then forget about. Instead, you need to spend time on customising it in a personal way by picking images that display the best moments you had with a person you love. You will remember the explosion box for a long time as it is attached to strong emotions … “

1. The 2 Main Reasons Why People Fail Facebook Ads

1.1 No appealing offer

  1. You are marketing to people
  2. Facebook´s algorithm does not convince people to buy
  3. Facebook´s algorithm helps you to deliver your ads to the right people

1.2 No willingness to spend money on testing

  1. Making money from Facebook Ads results from testing a lot
  2. Testing costs money
  3. It is impossible to be profitable right from the beginning

  1. Add a new page and a new ad account to your business
  2. Create a pixel and install it to your Shopify store
  3. Add information about your business: “Business Info”

2.3 Introduction To The Dashboard

* View video *

2.4 Coloumn Setup

2.5 Billing

  1. Use a credit card as your primary payment method
  2. Make sure that Facebook is able to charge your credit card every time
  3. Set up a second payment method just in case

3. General Success Formula

  1. Appealing offer
  2. Appealing creative
  3. Right audience
  4. Lots of pixel data

4. Launch Strategy

4.1 Creative Testing Phase

  1. Create multiple creatives and run them against each other
  2. Goal: find the top performing creative for driving traffic to your online store
  3. Do not expect to get any sales in this phase
  4. Check out my YouTube video about how to create Facebook video ads
  5. Turn off ad set after 2500 impressions (automated rule)
  6. Compare “cost per unique content view” to evaluate best creative

4.2 Interest Testing Phase

  1. Test as many interests as possible
  2. Pause interests that do not convert
  3. Goal: collect data and identify some profitable audiences
  4. The more interest testing campaigns you run, the faster will you collect data
  5. Random interests work as well
  6. If ad spent >= breakeven CPP & purchases = 0, pause interest and replace with a new one
  7. Once you identified 4-5 profitable interests within 1 campaign, start scaling

4.3 LAA Testing Phase

  1. Test as many different LAAs as possible
  2. Launch LAA after 750+ events (the more data the better)
  3. Do not pause ad sets
  4. Turn off campaign, if…
    1. … ad spent >= 2 x breakeven CPP and purchases = 0
    2. … ad spent >= 4 x breakeven CPP and unprofitable

5. Scaling Strategy

  1. Two ways to scale: horizontal and vertical scaling
  2. Horizontal scaling = increasing the number of targeted audiences
  3. Vertical scaling = increasing the budget of targeted audiences
  4. Do horizontal scaling before vertical scaling

5.1 Horizontal Scaling

  1. Goal: identify as many profitable audiences as possible
  2. Always separate interest and LAA testing campaigns
  3. Preparation for vertical scaling

5.2 Vertical Scaling

  1. Goal: get the most out of the audiences that you identified as profitable
  2. Increase campaign budget only (no duplication)
  3. Increase budget, if profitability > 20%
  4. Increase budget by 20%-100% every 3 days depending on the profitability during the past 3 days

***Bonus: My Simple Trick To Increase Your Profitability By 20% Immediately

  1. Duplicate the winning creative from the creative testing phase 3 times into each ad set
  2. After ≈ 20€/ $22 is spent on each copy of the winning creative, compare “cost per unique content view”
  3. Pause the copies with the worst value

Why it works


  1. Each audience is divided into multiple sub-audiences
  2. Each ad is allocated to a sub-audience
  3. If you have 3 ads, you are likely targeting 3 sub-audiences
  4. Some sub-audiences are more profitable than others

6. Retargeting

  1. Launch retargeting once you spent 300€/ $350 per week
  2. Start by targeting people who interacted with your business within the past 3 days (can extend the period if you are profitable)
  3. Consider using Google Ads (Display and YouTube) because you only pay per click
  4. Separate warm and hot retargeting into two different campaigns
  5. Warm retargeting = people who saw your ad before (75% VV, 95% VV, Post Saved etc.)
  6. Hot retargeting = people who saw your website before (VC, ATC, IC)
  7. Be careful with audience overlaps
  8. If unprofitable, add new creatives or decrease time span

7. Ad Fatigue

  1. Ad fatigue means that too many people have seen your creative before and your ad performance suddenly declines
  2. Compare CPM, CTR and average video watch time 3 times per week with values from the past in order to spot a declining performance asap
  3. Solution: make new creatives

Making An Unprofitable Dropshipping Store Profitable | Trouble Shooting Your Dropshipping Strategy




This video covers the issue most new (Shopify) Dropshippers face: they cannot make their Dropshipping business profitable. I am going to show you all strategies that you can use in order to solve this issue. Some of my strategies will take lots of time to set them up but they are necessary to become a professional (Shopify) Dropshipper and turn your business to the next level.

1. When Is My Dropshipping Store Unprofitable?

  1. Calculate your profit margin for every sale
  2. Calculate your average CPA (=cost per acquisition)

  • Your product is impressive and has a “wow effect”
  • Your product leads to an impulsive purchase decision
  • Your product is proven to sell, i.e. that other Dropshippers are profitably selling it

2.2 Creative

  • Creative = picture/ video that is used for advertisement on social media
  • Test 4 or more different creatives and analyse which one is most appealing to your audience
  • The first 1-2 seconds (“scroll stopper”) are the most important ones
  • Use professional video editing tools, e.g. Animoto or Blender
  • Spy on the ads of your competitors (using Facebook Ads library or other paid tools)
  • Goals:
    • High CTR (click-through-rate): 2%+
    • High engagement (likes, comments, shares)
    • High watch time: 30%+
