It’s evident that dropshipping has become a very lucrative way of earning an income in 2022. There has been a large increase in people entering the dropshipping space and it has become incredibly competitive. This blog will go through the ways on How to find winning products on Aliexpress.

Competition is not always a bad thing it just means you need to get there first or do it better. If you read my blog “Dropshipping strategies in 2022” you will get a better understanding of “do it better”.

However, the traditional strategy goes something like “get the winning products before the competitors and scale as fast as possible”. Both of the above-mentioned strategies can lead you to success.

How to find winning products before your competitors:

Finding winning products sometimes takes a bit of time online and intuition. Some of my bestselling products were not found through apps, graph charts or dropshipping gurus.

These winning products were found by simply taking note of what I see on social media. Let’s be honest, we all spend way too much time scrolling through social media and useless stuff that we don’t even remember.

I made it my goal to take note of what influences and people are using in their social media posts. I dove into so much detail as to what color they were wearing or what tasks they were doing and eventually I started realizing that the winning products can be foreseen through the smaller details.

For example, scrolling through TikTok I noticed that Ombre color ways started showing up more and more often on my feed. It was something that caught my attention. I noticed that Kylie Jenner was incorporating ombre color ways into her new brand “Kyliebaby”.

I often spend time scrolling through products on AliExpress and I remember seeing an ombre water bottle. It was a perfect match.

I managed to spot the trend before people even realized it would be a trend. This bottle went on to be one of my best sellers.
