Five dropshipping marketing methods you should try out

Your store is complete. You have imported every product, tested out your customer service email, perfected your shopping cart, created a logo, and added a special touch to your store’s design. The only thing you need to do now is to find some customers! This is where marketing begins. Without marketing, no one will be able to admire your beautiful site and buy your products. Here are a few strategies that you can implement that are easy for beginners.

If you haven’t created a few social networking accounts for your store, you’re missing out on a big opportunity. There are two main ways to advertise on social media sites; the free way and the paid way.

Instagram

Free

When you place an item or items for sale, make sure to upload the picture to the site and add at least ten hashtags. If you place hashtags on your product, then it is free advertising because as Instagrammers scroll the page down, they will see your item on their feed. Be sure to place the price in the comments and a small description. You can use this method as much as you like, and it is entirely free.

Paid

If you want to market directly on Instagram, you can use their advertising options to place your ad in specific niches and interests without needing hashtags. The cost of an ad depends on the time of the year, the ad itself, where the ad goes, and what audience you are targeting. You can advertise at anywhere from $5 a week to $1,000 a day or more. All you have to do is adjust your budget and your marketing schedule in the menu.

Facebook

Free

You need to open a Facebook page for your store. Don’t skip on any feature on your page. Make sure your page is completely filled out, and always advertise sales on the page as well. People may not purchase products through your Facebook page, but they can like and share it, which will cause their friends to see your page as well. Slowly, your store will gain more likes and follows organically as interested people interact with your page.

Paid

Like Instagram, you can advertise your website on Facebook. You can create ads to send customers to your website or on your Facebook page. The advertising manager will let you adjust the price you pay each day, and you can pause it at any time. You can also test multiple types of ads to see which one works best.

Hire a Fiverr marketer

Digital marketers on Fiverr specialize in obtaining an audience for your website. Some of them advertise a blanket service of 1000+ people, while others specifically target a niche audience that is more likely to buy from your store. The cost to hire a marketer varies greatly. It can be anywhere from $10 to $100 or more. When you’re searching for a digital marketer, make sure to read their reviews and how many orders they have finished.

Conclusion

So, here are a few methods you can practice marketing your store online. Make sure to keep costs low and test as many advertisements as you can. Once you understand what works and what doesn’t, you can slowly increase the amount of money you spend.
