Winning Products Friday Episode 178

Hey folks!

Been a while, hasn’t it?

So good to see you on another awesome episode of our Winning Products Friday, where we share hot-selling, trending products that can amass a lot of sales for you if you dropship them. 

In today’s episode, we would like to share this nice Portable Heater product.

As you know, Winter is upon us again, and naturally, people will be actively looking for products to keep themselves warm during this chilly season. This portable heater is definitely one of the products they will be looking for. 

As proof, it isn’t even full Winter yet, but this product has generated over 1,000 orders already. 

At this pace, it’s safe to say that order volume will hit 2000 by January. For this reason, the best time to list this product on your dropshipping website is now. 

Still doubtful about dropshipping this product? That’s okay. Trying out a new product can be scary. 

Nonetheless, you just have to get over your doubts and misgivings because this product has an excellent profit margin of $51, which is certainly one of the highest we’ve seen so far.  

Selling just ten units of this portable heater will put a cool $500 in your pockets. And that is certainly not a far-fetched goal. 

From experience, we’ve noticed that seasonal products tend to perform well with dropshipping. And since this portable heater is seasonal, you can expect it to perform well sales-wise this winter period. 

Not convinced yet? It’s about time we went a bit deeper into details to let you see why dropshipping this product makes a lot of sense. 

Why this product?

A high sales volume and a nice profit margin are not always enough metrics to judge if a product is dropship-worthy. It’s also important that it ticks off some of the following checkboxes: 

  • Solves a problem 
  • Isn’t that available
  • It has been trending for sometime

This portable heater product kind of meets all these criteria. 

Firstly, it solves the problem of keeping people warm during the chilly cold periods of winter. And you know, people love to buy products that solve a problem for them. 

Secondly, this product isn’t that available, in that you can’t walk into a retail store and find it there. If it were, people wouldn’t even bother going online to look for it. 

And then lastly, it has been trending for a long while, indicating it’s been growing in popularity with buyers and sellers. 

As proof, The NEXUS, our innovative AI-powered product research engine, has been monitoring the demand trend for this product. Here is what it found:
