Is Facebook Marketplace Dropshipping Already Dead?

Is Facebook Marketplace Dropshipping Already Dead?

Is Facebook Marketplace Dropshipping Already Dead?

is facebook marketplace drop shipping
already dead it really depends on who
you ask and what their specific
experience with it has been so far now
i'm going to give you my opinion and
what's been my experience over thousands
of sales on the platform that i've done
on both personal marketplace and on shop
since about april-ish of last year okay
is it trending downward is it trending
upward is it getting harder is it
getting easier is it maybe too saturated
already is it even worth drop shipping
on personal marketplace anymore or
should you solely focus
on just using a shop right
all of these things are stuff that we're
going to cover but first if you're new
to the channel and you're unfamiliar
with who i am my name is brian i run an
ecommerce company that does multiple six
figures a year in profit and i want to
help you do the same alright so let's
hop in and let's cover some specifics
of all the questions that i kind of want
to touch on right
so first and foremost the first thing i
wanted to touch on is everybody's
hopping over from personal marketplace
to shops right that's all the craze it's
been honestly the craze since like
maybe september-ish roughly off the top
of my mind now full disclosure i do both
of them right and i think that they're
both still incredible opportunities and
still in their infancy and by far are
not saturated now i've already done
videos on why i recommend moving over to
shops assuming that all things are equal
like shops is better right there's so
many more things that you can do with
shops so many more you know tools as a
seller that you get with shops but i
don't want to cover any of that
specifically here because i've already
dropped a video on that chat on this
channel about why i recommend shops to
the majority of people that have
experience and why you should eventually
think about moving over if you haven't
already right but that's not to say that
facebook marketplace personally is dead
it is by far not dead and is still a
great opportunity right also if you want
to check that video out i'll drop it at
the bottom of the description if you
obviously want to check it out or save
it for you know in your watch later for
after this video right
but
yes facebook or facebook shops is a
great opportunity but that does like
they're not synonymous right just
because shops is a good opportunity does
not then make marketplace a worse
opportunity right marketplace is still a
phenomenal opportunity shops is a
phenomenal opportunity facebook is
building them both the only issue that
people are currently facing with shops
for the most part is that like little
yellow uh marketplace badge where like
you have the shop open it's been
accepted but yet for whatever reason uh
facebook has disabled your marketplace
on that shop and you have that little
like clause that says it will be
re-enabled automatikally in early 2022
right first i want to touch on the fact
of low views okay so i've listed
as close to 150 products a day for
i don't know the last four to five
months or so right i don't personally do
that but my va's do that they're
literally doing it on computers right
now in the corner okay
so i list as much as possible i've
toked about that in other videos it's
like it's it's almost like the way i
look at it is like if you're you're
coming you're trying to make a comeback
in like a baseball game right
why would you like you have a much
better opportunity and chance to make a
comeback if you have you know nine outs
remaining rather than if you have two
outs remaining and so the same kind of
strategy the same concept goes into
listing on personal facebook marketplace
or even shops right the more you list
the better opportunity you have to make
sales it's a no-brainer all right and so
most people just simply don't list
enough right so i list about 130 a day
or i have my va's list about 130 a day
that leaves me with about 20 listings to
play with in case i get personal
messages asking me for specific things
like i've touched on this again in
another video i'll drop that video down
at the bottom of the description if you
want to check it out but like one of my
secrets is like people message me all
the time saying like hey do you have
this or hey do you have this variation
or do you have it for a specific you
know fit or whatever it is and if i
don't what i do is i go out and i find
that i list that and then i message them
and say yeah i do here it is and quite
often those people actually buy it right
because they're literally telling you
what they want and so i list or my va's
list about 120 130 a day
that leaves me with some wiggle wiggle
room because i probably get at least
upwards of 100 messages a day most most
days it's upwards of a hundred uh and a
lot of those are personal questions
about like hey do you have not like a
lot actually that's the wrong way to put
it but like a good number of those are
like specific requests for products or
variations and so i create those
listings and that's why i leave myself
with a room so
the whole thing with like low views is
like the whole reason i'm tying i'm
saying that i want to tie back into the
fact that i list so many a day that like
i see so much data on listings and even
though i list that many the majority of
my listings don't actually get that many
views
but
but overall in the in the like in the
macro in the micro each listing might
not do that great and you might look at
like the last 20 listings and be like
i'm getting zero views or one view this
sucks a it's delayed okay so like the
reporting on facebook is delayed so you
can't really look at it accurately all
the time
and b
my sales have still been phenomenal okay
i still have done for the past
three to four months over 10k in profit
on personal marketplace okay every
single month since september i think i
don't actually remember what september
was but october definitely was with
halloween um november definitely was
december 1000 was november was a little
bit better than december actually and
january is my best month yet right and
so that's across multiple personal
marketplaces but that said it's still
possible and there's still a lot of
opportunity there and my biggest secret
is obviously listing quality products
i've again touched on this in other
videos just check out the channel um and
and also
list more right give yourself more more
chances it's a no-brainer okay most
people don't list the right products and
most people don't list enough okay so i
wanted to touch on that um you know
people were reporting a lot of lower
sales and a lot of lower views almost
like it's just like happening to them
and facebook is doing this to them it's
not right it literally has to do with
what you're listing and how much you're
listing and that's the only thing right
i've seen this on multiple marketplaces
i've seen this with students just list
more lists better products okay and
there's a million different ways to list
better products figure out what works
for you test different things you'll
figure that out right the last thing i
want to touch on really fast is why
people think it's dead it's dying it's
saturated and it seems like when you hop
into these groups or a lot more people
are making like youtube content about it
now like facebook marketplace drop
shipping and it's like it's really hype
but
it seems like from an inside perspective
that a lot more people are doing it and
it's getting too saturated but we all
live in echo chambers because what we
when we hop on youtube we're interested
in facebook marketplace drop shipping or
whatever you're interested right and so
youtube serves you more of that content
that you don't see all the other content
out there you literally just see that
same thing with when you're on facebook
and like facebook groups or scrolling
your facebook feed same thing with
instagram same thing with any of these
social media networks right and so we
live in these echo chambers where we
think everybody else is is like knows
about this and is doing it as well but
it's just because we're all in these
echo chambers on social media that we we
think that and we think it's so
saturated right it is not oversaturated
by any means and also
facebook marketplace is still in its
infancy with the shipping option right
more and more people are getting more
comfortable buying with shipping i still
get messages all the time and i'm sure
you do too if you do it where people are
like hey like can i pick this up or like
hey do you only offer shipping or how do
i make a purchase and you have to
explain the process to them right and
explain that like there's buyer
protection and stuff like that right for
like 30 days and if they don't get their
item and all that good stuff right so
people are getting more and more
comfortable buying on marketplace with
the shipping option and there's
literally billions of people on facebook
obviously not within the us but like
hundreds of millions and so more and
more of those people are becoming
comfortable buying our marketplace so
it's opening up a bigger pool of buyers
even if there's an influx of more
sellers right so both of those points
literally knocks that that whole
argument out of like it's not
oversaturated there's still plenty of
opportunity there and i really kind of
wanted to touch on that in this video
because i by no means think that it's
dead or dying anytime soon i see it for
the next few years at least if not
longer than that and honestly like ebay
is like ebay or walmart is probably like
this the
for the longest time was like amazon's
biggest competitor if anybody can
potentially knock amazon off which they
won't obviously but if anybody has the
potentiality to do that it is facebook
with all their customers and all the
data that they already have on all their
customers okay
so this is still a phenomenal
opportunity both on shops and on
marketplace and i kind of just wanted to
touch on that here now if you want a
step-by-step blueprint to your own six
figure facebook marketplace drop
shipping business
dropship pro is linked directly in the
description also since the biggest issue
that most people drop shipping on
facebook marketplace face is clearly low
views and low sales i created a video
that discusses the two biggest factors
to why you get both of those and what
you can do to combat it right so you can
watch that video by clicking the link up
in the right hand corner right now if
you'd like i hope this video helps i
hope your sales are trending upward and
i hope to see in the next one
