Facebook Marketplace is Evolving - Here's What You Can Do

Dropshipping on Facebook marketplace is evolving…and if you want to continue to crush it on the platform, you need to evolve with it (and stay ahead of the curve).

In this article we’re going to talk about exactly how you can do that.

In the beginning you could simply copy pretty much any product from any supplier…mark it up a bit….and get loads of sales. But that’s not as effective anymore.

There’s more competition on marketplace now (not just from other dropshippers, but from other 3rd party resellers, and from other big brands and stores as well).

It’s no longer enough to simply copy products word for word and use the same exact pictures from a retail supplier, then mark them up.

Don’t get me wrong, this can still get you some sales. But you won’t see exponential sales (like you used to in the beginning) simply using this method.

The reality is pretty much everyone that dropships is doing that.

And a combination of increasingly wise customers, along with more people listing these same products (with the same pictures and same titles), will ultimately result in slower sales if you’re SOLELY relying on this method.

It might not happen today….might not happen next month…but the writing is certainly on the wall.

Instead, you need to treat this like an actual business moving forward. I’m not saying you can’t list products from popular retail suppliers, but you need to figure out how you can IMPROVE your listings and your offer to the customer.

Simply copying what is easily available to everyone else is a recipe for only short success and short term profit.
