Best methods to find potentially winning Products we'll begin with my currently Favorite product research method The Tick Tock ads by Method go to Google and Type in top ads on Tick Tock and you Should be able to find this website here That gives you access to all the ads on Tick Tock so for example we could look For ads running in the United States Then select a niche like Beauty and Personal care set the objective to Conversions and product sales and then Look for ads that have been running in The last 30 days then we can even sort The ads by the ones that are performing The best in terms of reach click-through Rate and retention rate this allows us To see the ads that make people actually Click and visit the store after seeing The ad the reason this is currently my Favorite product research method is Because we cannot only find tons of Product ideas in minutes but we can also See what ads are performing the best for These products Let's move on to Method number two the Facebook ad spy method this is where we Look at what products are currently Being sold on Facebook and Instagram by Looking at ads on these platforms for Facebook I like to use a free Chrome Extension called my Ad Finder which Filters out all the regular Facebook Content and just shows us the ads to

Make sure we only see e-commerce ads we Want to make sure to click on an E-commerce ad that we can find and then On the store go all the way to the Checkout page and do that for a couple Of more Ecom ads as well this will tell Facebook that we are interested in E-commerce products so we'll pretty much Only see Ecom ads from that point on Forward and we're able to find hundreds Of potential product ideas within just a Few minutes If you want to see more ads at a Particular brand is currently running What you want to do is go to the Facebook ads Library enter a Target Country choose all ads and then type in Their brand name that'll show you all The ads that this brand is currently Running this is a great way to see what Marketing angles are currently working For other stores so you can basically Use the same or similar angles for your Own ads sometimes you can also simply Type in a product name and you'll be Able to find stores selling that Particular product on Facebook what I Like to do is check different countries To see if there is a market where nobody Is selling that particular product yet This might be a great opportunity to Find a winning product that is already Selling well and be the first one to Sell it in a new market

Now on to Method number three the paid Ad spy method this is basically the same Method as the first two but now we use Services like Mania PP ads or Other tools that automatically show us New winning products every single day so These tools basically look at all the Active ads on Facebook Tick Tock Snapchat or Pinterest and then look at The ones that are performing the best in Terms of views shares likes and comments This allows us to save tons of time Finding all the ads ourselves and Analyzing their performance so for Example here on Mania we can simply go To Facebook ads for the filter I like to Go to Advanced and then set the creation Date to the last 30 days the language to English the Ecom platform to Shopify and The likes to a minimum of 500 likes this Will show us all the ads that have been Created in the last 30 days and haven't Proven to be successful because they Already have a decent amount amount of Likes we can click on the ad to see more Information about that particular store Running this ad the engagement over time Tells us if people are still interested In this product which is a good sign When we click on shop analysis we can See if the stored traffic is increasing Or decreasing and we can even see the Shopify theme and the Shopify apps that This store is using I'll leave a list of

The best ad spy tools that I recommend Down Below in the video description Let's move on to Method number four the Viral Tick Tock method where we look at Tick Tock product videos that have Recently gone viral so simply open up Tick Tock go through the search feature On the top right and type in popular Hashtags like for example Tick Tock made Me buy it to make sure we can get on Trends early we want to go to the Filters on the top right and then under Date posted we're going to change it From all time to this month then hit Apply and Tick Tock will show us the Most popular videos with that hashtag And here are some more hashtags you can Check to find training products on tick Tock when you find a product that looks Interesting to you you can also click on Their Tick Tock profile and usually You'll find a link to the store selling That specific product these people are Basically using organic Tick Tock Content to get visitors to their store This is a great strategy especially if You are on a low budget The fifth product research method I want To show you is the supplier reach out Method this is where we directly contact Suppliers on AliExpress Alibaba or also Other sites and ask them what products Have recently started to sell for them Because they are the ones delivering the

Product so they have all the information What products are working well right now Obviously they benefit too from more People selling their products so they Will tell us exactly what products have Recently started to sell for them by Using this method we're able to find Products that aren't too saturated yet And get on Trends early The next method I want to show you is The Amazon movers and shakers method This is where we spend time on and look at products that Have recently been gaining in popularity On Amazon we can click on all and then Go to movers and shakers that shows us The biggest gainers in terms of sales Rank over the past 24 hours so these are The products that have recently become Very popular on Amazon I recommend to go Through some interesting categories on The left side and just spend some time Looking at these trending products and Amazon actually updates these products Every single hour Method number seven is the AliExpress Rabbit Hole method this is where we Simply Go to and go Through their product recommendation System so on the AliExpress homepage we Just click on products that look Interesting and then ask ourselves if we Could Market that product creatively on Social media and for each product that

We click on we can also scroll all the Way down and look at the recommended Products if we keep doing this for like 20 minutes we can find tons of product Ideas that we wouldn't have found Anywhere else So now you know exactly how to find Potentially winning products but what Are we looking for exactly in a product So that we can maximize our chances of Starting a successful and profitable Store so here are some things to look For when choosing your first product First of all the product needs to be Something that actually adds a value to Somebody's life and actually solves a Real world problem we don't want to sell Something that is of low quality or Doesn't do what it promises that would Just lead to tons of refunds and a Horrible experience for you and your Customers then we want to think about The platform we will be selling that Product on which is mainly Facebook Instagram and Tick Tock people go to These platforms to be entertained and Not to buy products this is why products With a so-called wow factor work the Best on these platforms so try and find Products that look interesting and maybe Even something that many people haven't Seen before optimally it should be Relatively easy for people to understand The benefit of your product within just

A few seconds the best products are the Ones that give you tons of creative ways On how you can advertise it on social Media another Factor you want to Consider is the selling price many People on social media generally don't Buy very expensive products from brands That they haven't seen before so we want To make sure that we can sell our Product at a price that is low enough so That people are willing to take out Their credit card right then and there And purchase without overthinking too Much because of a higher price at the Same time we don't want to sell Something that is too cheap because then It'll be hard to make a profit after all The expensive a good selling price to Shoot for is twenty dollars to one Hundred dollars for anything above 100 It's going to be less likely for people To do an impulse purchase in order to be Profitable we want to make sure we can Get the product from our supplier for a Third or battery at a quarter of the Price that we are selling the product For meaning we'll be shooting for a 3X Or even a a 4X markup so if we're able To get the product for 10 from our Supplier we want to sell it on our store For 30 to 40 dollars anything below Thirty dollars which would mean below a 3X markup it would be very difficult to Be profitable we also want to look at

The current market situation for a Potential product you're most likely not Going to find a product where you don't Have any competition so don't worry if There's already other people selling the Same product usually that just means That there is a demand if you are trying To find stores that are currently Selling the product that you're looking At I have a quick tip on how to easily Find those stores what you can do is Simply take a screenshot of the product Then go to Google Images click on this Icon here which is the search image Feature then upload your screenshot and Then click on find image source this Will usually show you all the stores That are currently selling this product We also want to check the long-term Trend of a product or Niche for every Product that you consider check on Google Trends if your product or the Niche or product is in is an upper Trend Or a downward Trend generally you want To go for products where the demand is Increasing and not decreasing if you go For a product that is seasonal make sure To launch your store at the start of the Season and not at the end Once we find a good product that we Think has potential the next step is to Find a good supplier for that product There's three factors that you want to Consider when choosing your supplier the

Sourcing price the shipping time and the Product quality Sourcing price means how much you will Have to pay to the supplier to get the Product shipped to the customer like I've already mentioned we want to sell The product for at least three times the Price that we paid to the supplier that Gives us enough of a margin so that we Can be profitable after our advertising Cost if you're going to go with free Traffic methods like Tick Tock organic Then you can obviously get away with a Lower margin as you don't have to pay For advertising when it comes to the Shipping time obviously the faster the Better now it can be quite a challenge To find a supplier selling your product For a good price that also offers fast Shipping times the place where you find The most products and suppliers for Drop Shipping is still a site That you're probably already familiar With the big downside of using AliExpress are the very long shipping Times with AliExpress standard shipping You're looking at anywhere from 15 to 45 Working days and with AliExpress express Shipping it's going to be 7 to 15 Working days however in some extreme Cases it can take over two months for Your customers to receive the product Which obviously leads to a lot of angry Customers and potentially many refunds

Personally I try to avoid working with AliExpress suppliers but sometimes it's Just the only place where you can find Your product I recommend to look for Suppliers that actually have warehouses In the country you're selling in which Is most likely the us or Europe CJ Drop Shipping for example is a good option They have warehouses in the US Canada Australia the UK and many European Countries as well that's how we're able To get shipping times of two to seven Working days which is definitely a lot Better than on AliExpress another great Place to check for suppliers if you're Selling in the US is Zen drop with Zendrop you also get some custom Branding options where you can add a Product insert with your logo and a Thank you note another good option is they also have fast shipping Times to the US and Europe And the last option I want to give you For local warehouses is this Is one of the go-to Drop Shipping Platforms if you want to sell in Europe Now when talking to your suppliers about Shipping times make sure you ask them to Send you the last five tracking numbers Of products they have shipped to your Target market that way you'll be able to Exactly see how long it's took for the Products to get to the customer and now Like I've already mentioned the third

Factor you want to consider when Choosing our supplier is the product Quality if you're looking for suppliers On AliExpress type in the name of your Product you're looking for and then sort The results by the number of orders That'll usually show you the most Popular suppliers on the top then you Want to make sure that the positive Feedback rate of the supplier is at Least 90 percent optimally it should be Over 95 percent also make sure that the Product itself has a rating of 4.5 stars Or more and read the reviews of the Customers who have already purchased the Product usually also find pictures of The actual product and the packaging That the customer received now you have All the information you need to find a Potential winning product and you know Exactly where to source that product From make sure you don't get stuck in Analysis paralysis where you keep Looking for the perfect product but you Never actually launch your store it's Never going to be perfect so the only Way to find your first winning product Is to actually launch your store and Test the product so once you find a Product that you want to sell it's time To create your Drop Shipping Store we're Going to be using Shopify as the Platform to build our store on I've been Also using other e-commerce platforms

And then click on create now at the top This will automatically log you into the Tick tock ads manager that we've just Created before so before we start Setting up our campaign I want to Quickly show you how a paid ads campaign Is structured because that's really Important for you to understand so a Campaign has three levels the first Level is the campaign itself the second Level are the ad groups and then the Third level are the actual ads on the Campaign level we basically tell Tick Tock what the main goal of our campaign Is in our case this would be sales on Our store on the ad group level we can Define who we want to show our ads to And we can have multiple ad groups in The same campaign so we can test Different types of audiences and then on The add level we create the actual ad Which is what Tick Tock users will see When our ad pops up in their feed And also here we can have multiple ads In one ad group to test which ads result In the most sales great so now that you Understand the campaign structure let's Start setting it up Now we want to make sure to have the Full control over our ads so we're going To click on custom mode here Then we have to set our advertising Objective which is obviously getting Sales on our store so we're going to

Choose website conversions here And then we can name our first campaign Now with this first campaign we're going To Target people who have never seen our Brand before and in marketing this is Called cold traffic which is why we're Going to name this campaign cold and Then add the campaign objective which is Conversions then we have to decide how We want to manage our budget within our Campaign so if we turn on campaign Budget optimization also called CBO then We can Define our budget for the entire Campaign and Tick Tock will decide for Us how much money each ad group within Our campaign will receive based on what Tech talk things will get us the most Sales now if we turn CBO off then we're Going to set the budget at the ad group Level which is called and this means It's up to us to read the data and then Manually increase or decrease the budget For each ad group for testing I Recommend to leave CBO turned off Because this is going to enable us to Have more control over where we spend Our money then let's click on continue And now we're going to create our first Ad group within our new campaign we're Going to name our ad groups based on the Audience that we're targeting so if we Are targeting people who are interested In travel then we would simply name this Ad group treble but for this ad group I

Want to test a broad audience without Adding any interests this currently Works quite well on Tick Tock so because I'm not adding any interest in this ad Group I'm going to name it Broad Then here we're going to select our Pixel this is really important because That's how Tick Tock receives data from Our Shopify store For the optimization event we're going To choose complete payment Then on Replacements we're going to Click on select placement and then make Sure that only Tick Tock is selected if We don't do this then our ads might also Show up on other apps which at this Stage we don't want now let's click on Advanced settings and then turn off the Video download feature so it's not as Easy for people to just deal our ads Then we have the automated creative Optimization feature which if we turn This on it will basically split test Different parts of our ad and then Optimize based on what's working best However at this stage I'm going to leave This turned off because I want to test Everything manually myself so I can Actively learn what works best for my Product so let's move on to the Targeting here we can basically set Filters for who we want to show our ads To we're going to leave the targeting Mode at custom targeting and then for

Demographics we're going to put in the Countries we want to sell to so let's Say we want to Target the United States And Canada we can then just select those Here For language I'm going to select English And then for gender this really depends On your product so for example if you're Selling something that is clearly a Product for women then it definitely Makes sense to just select female here For some products though it might make Sense testing a male audience as well as They might buy it as a present for Somebody else I'm Gonna Leave This at All as my product isn't specific to Gender then for age I recommend to Deselect the 13 to 17 age group because Children in that age don't even have a Credit card so it doesn't make sense to Show them our ads and then let's go to Interests and behaviors here we can Really narrow down the targeting to the Audience that would be most interested In buying our product now like I said Before in this ad group we're testing a Broad audience so we don't want to Narrow down our Audience by targeting a Specific interest what works quite well On Tick Tock is to not Target any Interest and then just show our ads for As many people as possible and then the Tick tock algorithm is quite good at Learning how the Target customer

Actually looks like and then it will Optimize based on that information That's the idea behind targeting a broad Audience however later on we're also Going to create separate ad groups for Testing specific interests as well now Let's move on to the budget as we've Decided to Define our budget at the ad Group level now we're going to have to Tell Tick Tock how much money we want to Spend on this ad group in general the More money we spend per day the more People will see our ads as beginner I Recommend to start with the minimum Which is 20 dollars per day Then under day parting we could select a Specific time of day when our ads should Be shown this is something that we could Set up later once we have some data and Know what times people usually buy our Product but for now I'm Gonna Leave This At all day then for bidding and Optimization we're going to leave the Optimization goal at conversion and then The bit strategy at lowest cost and then Click next Now we're at the ad level of our Campaign where we can actually create The ad so I'm going to name this ad at One and then under identity we're going To add our brand name and also upload a Logo of our brand then I'm going to move On to the ad details this is where we Can upload the video which will be shown

As the actual ad in advertising this is Called the creative so how do we Actually get the creative made Well you can either order the product And then create everything yourself or You can simply pay an ad agency to Create some ads for you I actually Prefer this option when it comes to Testing new products because it does Take a lot less time on my part and I Have more time to spend finding new Products and testing them to find a Potential winner the Ad Agency that I Use is called bands off ads and I'm Going to leave a link to them down below In the video description so once you Create your account with them you want To go to tick tock and then I recommend To get this package right here the tick Tock ad package which will give you Three variations of a 15 to 30 second Long Tick Tock ad for your specific Product now what these guys are going to Do is find clips of your product online And then cut together a video ad that is Optimized for tick tock so let's go back To the tick tock ad platform where we Can now upload our creative by clicking Upload And then dropping our video files here In the text field I recommend to put in Your offer so for example if we have a 50 discount offer then we can simply put Something like holiday sale 50 off then

We want to send people directly to the Product page so I'm going to put the URL Of the product page here Then for the call to action button we're Going to click here then click on edit Change this to standard and then choose Shop now this is what makes the most Sense for selling a physical product Then for tracking we've already set up Our Tick Tock pixel so everything's fine Here and we can go ahead and click on Submit When that's done our ad is going to be Reviewed by Tick Tock and once it's Approved it'll automatically start Running So now we are inside of the tick tock Ads manager where we can manage all of Our campaigns so now under campaigns we Can see the campaign we have just set up When we click on it it will take us one Level deeper to the ad groups so here we Can see our ad group and then when we Click on the add group it will take us To the ads which are inside of that ad Group Now to start out I recommend to set up Two more ads in the ad group that we've Already created if you've used bands of Ads to get your creatives you should Have two more variations you can test so To set out the other two ads we can just Go to the ad we've already set up and Then just click on copy

Increase the number of copies to two and Then confirm And now all we have to do is edit each Of these copies To change the name And of course upload the other creatives So now we have one campaign with one ad Group targeting a broad audience and in That ad group we are testing three Different creatives if you can afford to Spend more than twenty dollars a day you Can create a few more ad groups to test Different interests as well so what we Can do is just go into our campaign and Then we're going to copy our ad group Two times And then for each of the copies we're Going to click on edit Then scroll down to the targeting And here choose the interest that is Closely related to what your Target Customers would be interested in Once you've chosen your interest make Sure to name your ad group the same way As the interest that you're targeting This will make it much easier to keep a Good overview in your campaign So this is our campaign structure for Launching our product we have one Campaign with three ad groups one Broad And two targeting interests and in each Ad group we have three different Creatives this is the setup that I Recommend to test new products
