While selling these types of products for short-term earnings isn’t something that is usually recommended, there’s still a lot of money to be made. If you do this right, you’ll be able to earn at least $100 a day by dropshipping them.

If this is something you wish to pursue, then keep reading. You came to the right place.

Best Traffic Sources To Use

Before we begin, we must discuss the traffic sources for your products because some products CAN’T be advertised on some platforms.

There are 3 traffic sources I recommend: Google ads, Facebook Ads and Instagram Shoutouts

Google ads is definitely something you should try out for trending products. When something’s trending, people don’t wait on their Facebook or Instagram feed for an ad to show up.

They look it up in Google and make decisions based on what they see in the 1st page.

Facebook Ads is also one of the best platforms you can use if you want to scale your business quickly. However, if you read Facebook’s Advertising Policies, you’ll see that they don’t allow products they think would lead to bad user experience (i.e. intimacy, violence, etc.).

Instead, what you can do is run Instagram Shoutouts.

They’re extremely cheap (if you know how to pick them), they’re a good way to gather data and it’s arguably the best way to test products.

Final Words

Even though these kinds of products do make you a lot of money, trendy products are still beaten by strongly built brands for 2 main reasons:

Time, effort and long-term results.

Time and effort to build stores/ad accounts again and again (if the demographics are very different), time and effort to gather data for different products… and the most important part? Long-term sustainability and profitability.

Don’t get it wrong though.

If you’re doing this to build the foundation/skillset for your future goals, either to get more experience or earn enough capital to start a bigger business, then, by all means, do so. This is a great way to do these things.
