If you’re starting a dropshipping business, it’s important to know the niche you’re going to be selling in.
A niche is a specific market segment that you focus on. It can be very broad or very narrow.
If you are selling furniture, for example, there’s a lot of different niches you could choose. You could focus on modern furniture or antique furniture. You could target people who want something that matches their decor or people who just want something that looks nice and doesn’t match their decor at all. You could sell only to people who have dogs as pets or only to people who have cats as pets. The list goes on!
When choosing your niche, make sure it has enough customers to support your business model and make sure it’s something that interests you personally before investing any money into getting set up for this new business venture!
In the niche of furniture, buying is a huge part of product selection. The process of buying furniture is not just about finding a piece of furniture that will sell well, it’s also about making sure that the furniture you are going to buy is ethically sourced and constructed. This can be difficult because there are many companies out there that claim they are ethical but really aren’t.
It’s important to do your research before choosing a company to work with. Look at their website and see if they have any information about their supply chain or how they source materials from different countries. They should also have some sort of certification on their website that shows you where their products come from and how they are made.
There are many certifications available for companies who want to show that they are ethical in their business practices. One example is the Fair Trade Federation which helps make sure that workers in developing countries receive fair wages for their work so that it doesn’t exploit them financially or otherwise abuse them physically or mentally (e.g., forced labor).
