Dropshipping businesses continue to grow in popularity, and the industry is showing no signs of slowing down anytime soon.

The idea of running your own store without maintaining inventory or dealing with the hassle of packing and shipping products certainly doesn’t sound too bad. And the possibility of generating an income from the comfort of your own homes makes the deal sound even better.

It is certainly no secret . . . the startup costs for a dropshipping business are significantly lower than that of a traditional retail store. This is another reason why this business model is so desirable for those wanting to join the wonderful world of entrepreneurship.

However, while dropshipping may be a profitable business model, it can also be a time-consuming endeavor.

From building out your store to adding products and managing the entire operation, many discover that starting (and running) a dropshipping business takes quite a bit of effort.

The good news is companies such as Fiverr offer dropshipping services to make the process a whole lot smoother.

Selecting a profitable niche and line of products for your dropshipping business requires quite a bit of research. 

I know, this doesn’t sound very fun, but it is necessary if you want to build a successful business. 

Lucky for you, you can literally pay someone else to take care of the product research for you. There are many sellers available on Fiverr that’ll pull the numbers and stats for you, then develop a detailed report to help you get started.

What type of information is typically included in these reports?

  • Product selection using results obtained during the research
  • Competitor analysis
  • Niche analysis
  • Trends
  • Potential revenue
  • Relevant suppliers

This is just a sample of what these Fiver sellers typically gather in your product research report. Of course this will vary from seller to seller, and you will often receive much more than what was listed above. 

The best part is, you can take advantage of these services for as low as $5!
