10 Reasons to Dropship
Dropshipping is a great business model for aspiring entrepreneurs to start with because it’s accessible. With drop shipping, you can quickly test different business ideas with limited downside, which lets you learn a lot about how to choose and market in-demand products. Here are 10 reasons why Natural Zing drop shipping is such a popular model.
1. Access to a large inventory of high-quality products.
Finding the right dropship partner is a critical first step when looking into dropshipping. With Natural Zing you have access to over 500 high-quality wildcrafted and organic plant-based foods, superfood powders, and personal care products. Our products are in high demand by customers who have high standards.
Natural Zing spent nearly two decades researching and sourcing products for our catalog. We work with the best suppliers and farmers that grow and source the highest quality foods. We have worked with many of them for over 10 years negotiating great prices, and consistent supply; testing and determining which products are high quality, great-tasting, and are in high demand.
2. Less capital is required.
Probably the biggest advantage to dropshipping is that it’s possible to launch an eCommerce store without having to invest thousands of dollars in inventory upfront. Traditionally, retailers have had to tie up huge amounts of capital purchasing inventory.
3. Easy to get started.
Running an eCommerce business is much easier when you don’t have to deal with physical products. With Natural Zing’s drop shipping services, you don’t have to worry about:
- Managing or paying for a warehouse
- Packing and shipping your orders
- Tracking inventory for accounting reasons
- Handling returns and inbound shipments
- Handling claims with carriers
- Continually ordering products and managing stock level
Because you don’t have to deal with purchasing inventory or managing a warehouse, your overhead expenses are quite low. In fact, many successful dropshipping stores are run as a home-based business, requiring little more than a laptop and a few recurring expenses to operate. As you grow, these costs will likely increase but will still be very low compared to those of traditional brick-and-mortar businesses.
5. Customer service excellence.
Natural Zing is known for its excellent customer service from our knowledgeable staff who you can reach by phone or email to our warehouse staff who packs every order with extreme care, to our fast processing of your orders in which in most cases are shipped out the same day the orders are received.
6. Flexible location
A dropshipping business can be run from just about anywhere with an internet connection. As long as you can communicate with Natural Zing and customers easily, you can run and manage your business.
7. Easier to test.
Dropshipping is a useful fulfillment method for both launching a new store and for business owners looking to test the appetite customers have for additional product categories, e.g., accessories or wholly new product lines. The main benefit of dropshipping is, again, the ability to list and potentially sell products before committing to buying a large amount of inventory.
8. Easier to scale.
With a traditional retail business, if you receive three times the number of orders, you’ll usually need to do three times as much work. By leveraging Natural Zing, nearly all of the work to process additional orders will be borne by us, allowing you to expand with fewer growing pains and less incremental work. Giving you plenty of time to focus on marketing.
9. Building Your Branding.
As you expand your business you may create your own products or want to house other manufacturers’ products in our warehouse to expedite and simplify orders as well as to minimize shipping costs. Some of our client’s private label Natural Zing products, which require a minimum of 12 units purchased to obtain private label services. If you are not having them shipped out right away, then you can store the additional units in our warehouse until they are purchased by your customers.
10. Save Money, Time, and Energy – Find a Role Model and Work with the Experts
Starting any business can be challenging but starting an eCommerce business can be overwhelming. The best way to learn how to do anything is to find a great role model and follow their example. Starting an eCommerce business is no different. When you have a drop shipping model you are leveraging experts who know how to manage the warehouse operations and shipping side of things. Over the last 15 years, I’ve watched many entrepreneurs have great intentions and sign up for drop shipping, but things fall apart when they get lost in the technology of launching a website or when it comes to marketing online products. This is why Natural Zing has decided to share our expertise and help entrepreneurs get past these launching pains by offering business launch and marketing coaching and consulting.
With 15 years of experience of dropship experience and 18 years of eCommerce natural food sales, our team of experts can guide you through the launch of your business, marketing, automation, and operations efficiency. You know your customers are in safe dependable hands as we ship each customer’s order out with care. Our customer service team is available email, phone, messenger to answer your questions and help you resolve any issues quickly.
