AliDropship Premium Dropshipping Store Review & Case Study

Last Updated: 22nd January 2021

In this article, we’re going to be reviewing the AliDropship Premium Dropshipping Store service, discussing what’s included in the package, its unique features, benefits, and looking at a few of the actual stores you can buy the done-for-you templates for.

We actually purchased one of AliDrophip’s premium stores on 25th December 2020, so we’ve had first-hand experience in dealing with the process of getting the ecommerce store online.

However, if you happen to be in a rush, take a read of our article summary below:

 


Article Summary: AliDropship’s Premium Stores are done-for-you, successful dropshipping stores that AliDropship has created, which are profitable.

The package is for a copy of the store, which includes the design, products, and the paid ad copy + targeting (optional) so that you can replicate their success.

We purchased one of the premium stores on the 25th December 2020, and we’ve been extremely impressed with how optimised the products are, from both a SEO and CRO perspective. We will be making adjustments, as there’s plenty of opportunites for growth (adding new products, new category pages, trying different marketing techniques, etc).

AliDropship shows the amount of profit that each store is earning, some making over $40,000 in profit per month.

AliDropship has provided us with a discount code/coupon that we can provide to our readers. It gets you 15% OFF any of their premium stores and additional services.

This means that you can get a store for $255 instead of $300… That’s a $45 discount.

What is the AliDropship Premium Dropshipping Store?

The AliDropship Premium Dropshipping Store service is a done for you dropshipping solution which supplies you with a complete copy of one of AliDropship’s highly profitable stores.

It differs from AliDropship’s Custom Store Service in that you’re purchasing a copy of an existing AliDropship store, instead of AliDropship doing research and creating a custom-made store, completely from scratch.

How Does it Work?

There are three steps to getting your premium store up and running:

  • Choose one of the 8 premium stores that AliDropship have available and you’ll be emailed with the downloadable store file
  • Upload the site onto your hosting server (You can get this done by one of AliDropship’s technical team)
  • Use the exact same, proven to work ad copy and targeting that AliDropship use on the original store to make it profitable (upsell)

 

What’s included in the Premium Store?

There are several things that are included in the package, these are as follows:

  • An exact copy of one of AliDropships profitable stores which are optimized for CRO
  • Mobile-friendly and SEO optimized theme & banners
  • Custom logo
  • Comes with high-quality products already imported from reputable AliExpress
  • Written and compelling product descriptions and imported customer reviews
  • AliDropship plugin
  • 3 add ons – Facebook Business, GA Enhanced Ecommerce & Abandoned Cart Plugin
  • (Optional – costs more) Ad designs and copy that Alidropship are using on the original store, which includes targeting settings

Regardless of whether you want to pay the additional cost for Ad designs and copy, we highly advise you to check out AliDropship’s blog, which has some really useful information and guides on how to effectively market your store, both in terms of organic and paid marketing. It discusses everything from SEO through to Google Ads, Facebook, and Pinterest marketing.

What are the benefits of getting one?

There are a number of benefits of purchasing one of AliDropship’s premium dropshipping stores:

  • Completely done for you, means no wasted time creating the site or importing products
  • Getting access to a copy of a website that earns thousands per month
  • Set up by experts – both website, products, descriptions, and ads
  • Lifetime professional support from AliDropship
  • Add an unlimited number of products

What are the downsides?

  • Limited niche selection as you’re choosing from one of AliDropship’s 8 successful stores
  • $300 to pay upfront, but you’re getting a lot for this!
  • Could be further optimized for SEO purposes (adding more content, internal links, target long-tail keywords – We’ll be creating a guide on optimizing an alidropship site for SEO)
  • Not many other disadvantages in our opinion

AliDropship Premium Dropshipping Store Case Study

Here at The Marketing Vibe, we like to only review products and services that we’ve actively used and are happy with.

We’ve been using the AliDropship WordPress plugin for approximately 3 years, and we usually create our own stores.

However, to provide further value to our readers, we wanted to test the premium store creation service first-hand.

Therefore, we made the purchase on Christmas Day, 25th December 2020.

We purchased the premium store, alongside the add-on marketing package, but we got so many extras that it was fantastic value-for-money, especially for us as we have plenty of projects that we’re running, so we’re more limited for time.

Proof of purchase

Receipt of purchase

As you can see in the video below, it’s explained that my account manager is Tatiana, and we have her contact information if we have any questions or need any support:

As of now, we’ve followed all of the instructions to get our store online, and it literally took us 45 minutes (most of the time we were waiting for our registrar’s DNS settings to update).

What was included in the premium package:

  • Premium store (including optimised products, categories, content and images)
  • AliDropship plugin and license (Worth $89)
  • El Greco theme (Worth $67)
  • Lifelong support from AliDropship
  • Facebook Business – Addon (Worth $27)
  • GA Enhanced Ecommerce – Addon (Free)
  • Marketing Package – Addon
    • Facebook Marketing Guide (76 pages) – Shows every step, from setting up the Facebook Business plugin, through to the specific Facebook Targeting demographics that should be chosen when running your campaigns.
    • Proven winning products – including ad creatives, recommended ad targeting and copy

Additionally, AliDropship provide links to all of their useful blog post tutorials, alongside their premium store webinar, which essentially gives you a video tutorial on scaling facebook ads.

Overall, we’re particularly happy with the store, and there is so much opportunity to expand it!

Update

Since all of the add-ons are a one-time purchase, unlike other services like Shopify where you have to pay monthly for app-usage.

Therefore, I have purchased the following apps (some we purchased muliple times as we are running numerous stores):

  • AliShipping – Automatically imports all of AliExpress’ shipping options on a product-by-product basis, so you’ll never be caught off-guard by unexpected shipping expenses, espeically if your supplier changes them often.
  • Promo banner – Provides a nice site-wide banner at the top of your store to promote a new sale, comes with templates for Christmas, New Years, Black Friday, Cyber Monday, etc.
  • Upsell – Manage upsells so that once a customer is buying a specific product, they are given the option to add another relevant product to their cart.
  • Urgency – Provides product page and checkout page urgency, with statistics on how many people have viewed/bought the product, and also adding a timer to the checkout page

If you’re serious about converting your visitors into customers, we highly recommend taking a look at AliDropship’s Add-ons here.

Our Next Steps

We’re currently doing keyword research so that we can identify new category pages that we can create for organic SEO purposes. We use a tool called KeySearch to do keyword research and competitor analysis, so that we can identify the best low-competition keywords to target.

We’re also looking into doing some pinterest marketing, with this being a fantastic platform for stores with a female target market, given Pinterest’s demographic.

Additionally, we’re getting the logo created and we’re beginning to build backlinks to the site, using services like SEOClerks to do this, as it’s generally cheaper than Fiverr.

We eventually use affordable seo packages for guest posts, with companies like FATJOE doing a great job with this.

Finally, we’ve put aside an ad budget, so that we can begin testing Facebook ads, using the FB marketing guide that AliDropship provided.

The Auto Merch – Car accessories store – Making $98,000 per month – Check out Website

The Auto Merch - Premium Store Example 1Number of imported products: 98

Different Languages Available: No

Our Thoughts: The store itself is clean and sleek-looking, everything that you’d want from a dropshipping store.

The website’s loading speeds are actually good, with it scoring 82/100 on GTMetrix. However, unoptimized images are slowing it down, but you can easily install a plugin like Shortpixel to automatically optimize the image sizes.

The product pages have a clear call to action ‘Add To Cart’ and they have clear, concise messaging which includes ‘Free Global Shipping’ and ’60-Day Returns’. Ultimately this will help to reduce the number of refund rates, and give you leverage if customers complain about long product shipping times.

Additionally, the product descriptions are extensive and provide a good level of detail about each product, which will help with conversions.

This must be part of the reason why the store earns nearly $100,000 in profits per month.

Ideal for: Those looking for a store in the car accessories niche with ultra-high earning potential.

How do we recommend driving traffic?

Since we’re an SEO agency, and we run a portfolio of eCommerce stores and affiliate websites, we highly recommend driving traffic through organic methods in the long term.

What do we mean by organic, well, through SEO, Social Media and Forums (depending on the niche).

For the most part, we imagine that most of you won’t have much experience in doing PPC (paid advertising) and so whilst you learn how to do this properly, we highly recommend building up your streams of organic traffic, and believe me, these streams will be small at first, but after 6-12 months, you’ll reap the rewards.

Let’s talk about the first steps to creating organic traffic:

1. Further Optimize your website for SEO

Now we’re aware that the premium store that AliDropship offers is “optimized”, but there are definitely areas that can be further optimized.

Read our new article on how to manage a dropshipping store for in-depth information on how we manage our portfolio of dropshipping stores.

Here is a brief summary of the information:

  1. Keyword research – Use a tool like KeySearch, which is a cloud-based service to identify low competition keywords. It’s extremely affordable, and we’ve provided a 20% OFF coupon, which gets you the software for $13.60 per month, instead of $17.
  2. Identify & Map Keywords – This part probably takes the longest amount of time. You need to identify all of the low competition keywords (provided in KeySearch) and look in Google for if other competitor category pages (pages with a collection of products) or blog posts are ranking. This will give you a good indication as to what Google is wanting to show for the target keyword.
  3. Create Content – Use AI tools like Copysmith and SpinRewriter to quickly create content for your site, including blog posts, product descriptions, category content, etc
  4. Create new category pages – Once you’ve identified the keywords that you want to target, and have seen in Google that competitor’s category pages are appearing for those keywords… You can go ahead and use the same strategy. Create the category pages on the site, and add current and new products to those category pages.
  5. Create new blog pages – The same is true for blog pages, if Google is showing blog posts for a particular keyword, you can create the same.
  6. Link Building – Begin creating links for your website, we recommend getting the following services
    1. Use FatJoe for Local Business Citations, Infographic Links and Guest Posts/Niche Edits

 

2. cONCENTRATE ON A FEW SOCIAL PLATFORMS

For some of the premium alidropship stores, social media marketing fits perfectly into an effective organic traffic strategy.

We will update this blog on some useful strategies to implement, to help grow and nurture your social media followers.

However, in the meantime, take a read of some of AliDropship’s strategies on using social media to increase sales on your store:

 

3. Find relevant forums and post on there

Every niche will have niche-relevant forums that are available for enthusiasts to join and share their thoughts and ideas about that particular topic. This is the perfect place for you to market your products, whilst making sure that you’re doing it subtly and being respectful of the community.

A good rule of thumb is, for every 4-5 posts that you provide on a forum, you can link out to one product. This way, when forum moderators inspect your profile, it looks like you’re a legitimate enthusiast who’s just sharing a great e-commerce site.

You could answer a post and then say:

“Just wanted to share this with you guys, my new [Fill in the blank], I think it looks awesome/is awesome! I got it from [insert website link] for those who might be wondering.”

This is natural and suggests that you are a fellow customer. For this, we would suggest buying a few of the products so that you can take some photos with the product in-hand.

 

AliDropship Premium Store VS Custom Store

 

Conclusion

In conclusion, when it comes to getting an AliDropship premium store, we would suggest two key things:

  • Choose a store which happens to be in a niche that you are at least interested in, since you’ll be working on growing this business, and all of the original alidropship premium stores are highly profitable, so it really doesn’t matter which one you eventually choose, just make sure you’re motivated to stay the course
  • Bear in mind that growing your store is an on-going process, both in terms of adding new products (although you definitely won’t need to do this immediately with a premium store, since it comes pre-loading with lots of tried-n-tested products) and marketing. Use the AliDropship blog and guides to learn and expand your knowledge of marketing, so you can make your new store a success.
