Dropshipping Tips

Using the information below you will be ready to reel in the customers. So let’s look at the top dropshipping tips to make sales.

Organic Sales

These are the best type of sales, because they happen automatically. An example of an organic sale is someone finding your shop on Google and purchasing your products. Here, you could have been sleeping, and you’ve made money. In order to get organic sales you need to be indexed on Google. This is simple enough for dropshippers on Photo Canvas: Once you have completed enough product descriptions that get a ‘green’ signal, you get automatically indexed.

Once you’re indexed on Google, you need to be visible, this means ranking in the higher pages through a process called SEO (search engine optimisation). In order to rank, fill your store description, product titles and product descriptions with a primary keyword or phrase that people would type into Google to find you. An example is: Silk pyjamas with flowers. Make sure this is included in the title and description (without spamming!) Your page is now optimised for organic sales.

Social Media

Make use of social media! It’s free marketing. Use Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, YouTube, even LinkedIn to announce to the world you are the new brand in town. Create your store and shout about it from the rooftops. To make a better impact, add photos or even videos when you market your brand, use relevant hashtags, and always entice people to click with a win for them. For example…

An Offer Too Good to Refuse

There lots of ways you can do this. Add a discount (better yet, add a time limit or day it ends to give urgency) and make it seem like the customer is winning. Of course, we know they are. But at this stage there’s lot of brands fighting for people’s attention; you need to grab them with a win. You can also do competition prizes, appetizes, or comparisons, and remember, write from the perspective of what the customer values and gains, not what you get from it.

Don’t be shy to get your amazing brand out there! If you do this part well, the profits will follow. For the photographers out there, click here to start dropshipping with Photo Canvas today. Good luck!

how to make money photography

Whether you have a passion for portrait, a finesse for fashion or a knack for nature, you may feel that photography is your calling. However, you may be thinking ‘no one really makes money with photography right?’ Sure, you’ve seen wedding photographers, but (especially in a time like the pandemic) it all seems like a side joint, nothing truly sustainable. Wrong. This article will inform you not only how you can make money from photography but how you can make sustained money from photography, as if it were a wage. Interested? Read on!

How to Make (Sustained) Money from Photography

how to make money with photography

In the words of financial guru Robert Kiyosaki, don’t work for money, make money work for you. There are the standard options of making money. You can build a website or social media page advertising wedding photography. You can set up a small studio and take baby photos. You can sell photos to the press. However, this article will focus on something very few photographers are doing, and how those who are reap in the rewards.

Creating your own online store. Sounds crazy? It shouldn’t.

Most people have an old fashioned idea about monetizing passion. Musicians still look to be signed to a record label, even though 95% of record labels have shut shop since the rise of internet streaming. Similarly, photographers may look to be included in a gallery or exhibition. Once again, this is old fashioned and misses the trick: You can be the shop.

Photo Canvas are launching a new initiative. Upload your photos onto our 400+ products, create a shop with our simple setup guide selling these products, and make money with the sales. That’s consistent money. Why? Because even in the lockdown, internet shopping has thrived. Once you’ve created your shop, uploaded your designs and started the process, it will generate sales even in your sleep.
This means you’re getting the manufacturing of physical products without the costs. In fact, it’s all free. You index on Google as a professional store, and you make between 20%-40% of the total sales.

dropshipping tips

This new business model has taken the world by storm lately, but what is drop-shipping exactly? How does it work, and what makes it different from types of reselling that came before it? We’ve taken a more in-depth look at the way it works so that you can decide for yourself if you want to get on board the latest hype train.

What is Drop-Shipping?

This whole new way of selling allows people like you and me to start our own business with little to no initial outlay, except for your time. It allows the little guy with big ideas to get up and running without loans, savings or a whole bunch of storage space.

How Does it Work?

Drop-shipping turns things on their head. Gone are the days of designing your product, ordering huge quantities and then selling them on. This modern-day business model allows you to design your fantastic products and then wait until the orders are rolling in before you actually make any purchases.

How Does My Customer Get Their Order Without Delays?

We can see where the confusion could come from on this one. If you’re already getting orders before you have the goods, then how are there not huge delays caused? Well, drop-shipping cuts out the middleman entirely. When a customer places an order with you, the drop-ship supplier starts creating that order. They then send this directly to your customer, so that you don’t have to wait for it and then send it on. Pretty clever, huh?

It’s an Extremely Low Risk Business Solution

Part of what makes this model so attainable is that it’s a very low risk alternative. There’s no need to order thousands upon thousands of pieces permanently crossing your fingers and hoping that they’ll sell. You can introduce new lines without having to stock up first. If it doesn’t go as well as you had hoped, then you haven’t really lost anything.
