    I've been on the s/o selling field for about 6 months with few 10-50k and less accounts, but this monetizing method is getting slow nowadays, I've been wondering if the niche I am is the correct to start a small dropshipping ecommerce business, like teespring & that kind of stuff. got few accounts on the pets/animals/baby animals niche & few others are food/desserts related accounts. like 4 accounts in this 2 main niches, wich are ranging from 10-20k.


    What do you think about this? I know it's a wellknown monetizing method, I'm just in doubt of niches being the correct for this, and lacking of ideas of what kind of merchandise would be the most suitable.

    I hope you can throw some light here, Thanks.

    Are your IG accounts relatable to your the ecommerce site you're considering? What is your engagement like per post? What is the engagements for the shout outs?

    Look, base on one niche and do it right, you can't work with dog food, baby products, shirts and 10 other things, you just can't find reliable suppliers and you can't make money.

    I actually don't agree with Adrian. I have drop shipping IG business in a few totally different niches and have had no trouble finding suppliers that I can trust. Especially if you're selling shirts. What's the difference between a luxury themed shirt and a hunting themed shirt in terms of production?

    You have to sell the RIGHT products for each niche. What will you sell to the dessert niche? Kitchen appliances, cookbooks, maybe weight loss. The animal niche - t-shirts, toys for pets? It wouldn't be ideal to sell weightloss in the animal niche even though you could do it. When your product really matches your niche, you will have a winner.
