Make Money Online Without A Budget Through Dropshipping

Aug 30, 2007
It's possible to make money on the internet in a lot of different ways. If you can drive traffic to a site, you have a lot of options. A very common method for making money off of traffic is by selling advertising. Webmasters and bloggers everywhere sell ad space on their sites. Some people make an insane amount of money doing it.

Although selling ad space seems to be a very profitable method for creating income with the internet, one has to question whether ad pricing has become excessive. Are advertisers willing to pay too much? It seems that prices are getting out of hand, and that means that someday there will be a bubble that will burst. Whether that happens today, tomorrow, or in 10 years, we should all be prepared for it.

An interesting fact is that even when the bubble bursts, it really won't affect the amount of products that are sold online. Jill, Jane, and John will still be just as many products online, and advertisers will be able to advertise for a lot less money. Does that mean that it would be a lot wiser to sell products instead of advertising? It seems so.

Some people struggle to start selling products online because they don't have the budget to buy them. Can you imagine the cost of buying each of the thousands of products you want to sell in your online store? What if you had to buy ten of each? You then have to figure out what you're going to do when the product won't sell.

A method that people use to get over this obstacle is dropshipping. Dropshipping allows you to buy the product after you have sold it. Usually it sits in the wholesale warehouse until it is sold. Once you have made the sale, you call the dropshipper and buy the product. The dropshipper will then ship the package directly to the customer. You don't have to deal with shipping, and you don't have to spend any money until you've already made some. The difference between what you sell the product for and what you buy it for is, of course, your profit margin.

When you create your site, you will basically mirror the dropshipper's site. You can add all the same products. I would recommend going through each product description and rewriting it since that will help your product pages to rank a lot better in the search engines. Getting traffic can be accomplished through search engine optimization, pay per click, and other forms of online promotion.

Overall, dropshipping can be a wise choice if you're on a shoe-string budget. Many dropshippers won't charge you any fees to use their services. You can literally make money for free.
