4 Reasons Why You Should Start a Dropshipping Business FIRST

By May 31, 2016Dropshipping


Hey guys, Travis Peters here from EscapeYourDayJob.com.

I have the privilege to interact with people on a daily basis who are interested in starting an online business.

While there are TONS of ways to make money online, (and I’ve explored A LOT of them!) I always advocate that starting a dropshipping business FIRST, is the best way to go when just getting started online.

When I started my first online business way back in the stone ages, (2010) I didn’t know it at the time, but what I had started was indeed a dropshipping business.

That business still pays me quite well today, it has allowed both me and my wife to escape our day jobs, pay down our debts, earn money passively, and spend more time serving at our church. (And go to the zoo in the middle of a Tuesday if we want!)

The results from my drop shipping venture completely opened my eyes to a whole new way of doing business.

Let me tell you a little bit about why I like drop shipping and why I think it should be your FIRST online business too. (Then below you can sign up for our free guide to get started)

Why You Should START with Dropshipping


1. It is the most simple online business model.  You find someone who wants to buy a specific product. You find the place that makes that specific product. Then create a website that connects the two, markup your price, and keep your profit. (I’ll show you how to do this below)

2. It’s the fastest way to profits. As you know, there are lots of ways to make money online. But I believe drop shipping will get you to place of profit faster. You don’t have to build a blog and gain a loyal following, you don’t have to build up to a giant amount of traffic, and you don’t have to spend thousands of dollars in ads to get started.

Profiting fast isn’t ultimately the goal. The ultimate goal is to build a business that matters and truly helps people. BUT, when you can get a quick win, a quick sale, then that helps you build that much needed momentum and will help propel your business forward.

(Plus, if you were like me, I really wanted to escape my day job, and drop shipping sped that process up)

3. You can sell less, and make more. In my first drop ship business, I chose a high-ticket item to sell. I personally like to sell less items, yet make more profit. Though these high-ticket sales can sometimes come with higher maintenance customers, for me it is worth it. You can choose a low cost item and make $5 profit per sale, but you’d have to sell 1,000 items a month to make it worth your time.  For me, I like to sell 10 items, but make $500 profit each time. With drop shipping, this is possible.

4. You can start with little to no money out of pocket. When I started my first site, I didn’t have any money to invest! I was broke and didn’t have a job! I found my product to sell and my supplier, created a free (and really ugly!) website, connected it to paypal and started selling. I didn’t even have my own pictures of the product, I had to steal pics from my competitor’s site until I could get my own.

Once I had my first sale, I used my customer’s money that went in my paypal account, to purchase the product from my supplier! This saved me from dipping into my own pockets to make that purchase. Now, this caused the wait time was longer for my customer, but I set that expectation on the website so they wouldn’t be upset at the 2-3 week delivery time.

Look, when I got started, I didn’t know what I was doing. I made mistake after mistake, I was just winging it! 

I knew that I wanted this “online business thing” to work. I had a desire to work where I wanted, have time and financial freedom, build a business that was exciting to work on and help other people.

Dropshipping got me there. 


I am now living the life I’ve always dreamed about. Both my wife and I have “retired” from our day jobs and get to spend more time with each other, family, and serving at our church.

My goal is to help you get started in your first dropshipping business so that you too can experience the life and benefits that I have.

I’ve made getting started extremely easy and want to coach you through the process.
