"The Art of Finding Winning Products"
We've always been firm believers that entrepreneurship shouldn't be hindered by borders, barriers, or language.
We're all connected by our innate need for purpose, mastery, and autonomy, and entrepreneurship is an expression of these three pillars. We wanted to make entrepreneurship accessible to everyone by first launching the Spocket app on both iOS and Android. Being able to view and push products directly to your store on the go made the dropshipping side hustle that much more accessible.
But now, we've decided to take it up a notch and introduce the Spocket app in 11 new languages. From the mountains of Brazil to the beaches of France, you'll have access to entrepreneurial opportunities with a mobile phone and an internet connection.
Localized dropshipping from US suppliers to US customers is what many eCommerce businesses have been focusing on as of late. Entrepreneurs like to source high-quality products to sell to customers on the same side of the world, out of both ease and fast, reliable shipping. Even in situations where stores were targeting international customers, those stores were finding other English-speaking countries like Australia, or countries with many English speakers like Denmark and marketing to them in English.
But dropshipping - and the spirit of entrepreneurship can't simply be constricted to the northwestern hemisphere.
Just because something is typically North American, doesn’t mean it needs to stay that way. International dropshipping can lead to awesome profits and conversion rates for your store and should be a serious consideration for any dropshipping business that is looking to expand or is just finding its perfect niche now.
Whether you’re looking to expand your existing business, or just starting your dropshipping journey and need to find the perfect product to sell, expanding your scope to an international level has huge advantages. One of the biggest is that many international customers convert more often than or as often as customers from the United States, and for a higher amount each time.
But better yet, it opens doors for people in foreign countries to become dropshippers or reliable suppliers themselves. Meaning that dropshipping is well on the way to becoming a feasible side hustle in Europe, South America, and most of the world.
Alternatively, people who live in France, Japan, Brazil, and many other countries, now have the ability to not only start dropshipping but selling their unique products to markets like the US or Canada.
There has always been a barrier to dropshipping internationally in that many of the powerful apps and services that help facilitate dropshipping are exclusively English. How are you supposed to start dropshipping in France if you are unable to find products or navigate your dropshipping service in French?
Luckily Spocket has officially been translated into 11 new languages, from Italian to traditional Chinese. Meaning that it’s now easier than it’s ever been to maintain a dropshipping store in a language other than English.
Even if a business owner was a non-english speaker they would need to navigate the process in English, which was time-consuming and made creating a store to drop ship to Europe, South America, etc. a hassle compared to working in English.
Removing the language barrier makes it so that international dropshipping is easier than ever, and it’s simpler for entrepreneurs to learn how to dropship and find products that they'd like to sell in their geographical areas as well as internationally, without the problem of language barriers!
Beyond international barriers, Dropshipping has always been a desktop endeavor, involving a computer to facilitate working with suppliers, importing products into your store, and managing orders. When you got a notification about a new order on your phone, you knew it was something that you had to handle when you got home.
The Spocket app gives you the ability to manage your business and pursue your entrepreneurship dream from anywhere, whether you’re on a commute or out with your family.
Dropshipping has always been about creating flexibility for people looking to become business owners, and adding additional languages and a mobile app is the next step in ensuring that eCommerce is open for everyone.
Mobile-friendly, international stores are the future of building your freedom through starting your own business. Whether you’re looking to start your dropshipping business or expand to international markets you can start with Spocket today.
