But, is it what everyone claims to be? Is it better than dropshipping?
Yes and No!
You can’t really measure the profitability of this business model without knowing the niche that you take for your drop servicing business.
So, here are some of the best drop servicing niches that are ready to be picked up!
How to Find Hot Niches for Your Drop Servicing Business
Drop servicing business is quite new at this stage and only a very few people have started this business. So, there are a lot of untapped niches to start with.
But, That doesn’t mean you can start with anything because some niches may be dominated by original freelancers or other businesses.
For egs, something like logo designing is already very competitive with both freelancers and huge businesses dominating this space.
So, we will need to stay away from those niches.
Here are the step-by-step procedure to find the best niches for drop servicing:
1. Traffic Analysis
The first step is to find a service which has a little bit of traffic.
Hover your mouse over them and you will see a ton of sub categories listed in each one of them.
Start clicking on each one of them and see if the first page results get any orders on them. Anything greater than 80-100 orders is a good niche.
List all the niches in a separate notepad and move to the next step

2. Analysing The competition
There are two ways you can start this business, the free way and the paid one which I have explained in detail in my drop servicing free short course.
So, This step may differ from yours depending on which way you started. I am going to show the paid one here.
P.S – The free method completely depends on Fiverr because that’s where you will be listing your service. However, you can check out this actionable guide which shows you how to get your first order on Fiverr!
For the paid method, we use Google Ads to drive in traffic to your website. The competition for these niches must be pretty low so that we can run a successful ad campaign.
Google has a free tool for assessing the competition called Google Keyword Planner which is accessible from Google Adwords. (Now, if you can’t access the tool without inputting your credit card details, here’s how you can get it for free without any billing details.)
Once you are in there, click on “Discover New Keywords”. Then open up the notepad and input each of the niches that you collected in the above step.
Before inputting, check if your location is set to all locations. But, if you are targetting specific countries then just select those locations only.
You will see something like this depending on what you have searched:-
- Average monthly Searches – Must be as high as possible. Usually “1K-10K” is good. “10K-100K” and above are awesome.
- Competition – Must be “Low” or “Very Low”. You should not even choose “Medium”.
- Top of the page bid (low range) – Should be very low. Less than $0.5 or $1 to be exact.
- Top of the page bid (High range) – Should also be low. Less than $1 or $2.
If any of the niches written on your notepad ticks all the 4 boxes above, Select that one and move forward.

Mockups or product mockups are basically design models that people use for promotion.
The example below is a mockup of a book that is used for promoting.
Fiverr has more than 3500 freelancers selling this particular service. You may choose the right freelancer according to your needs.
You may sell this service for atleast a $100 on your website.

There are a lot of beginner YouTubers out there who are trying to grow their respective channels. These people may not have a good intro for their youtube videos.
You can offer this service at around $100-$200. Fiverr has quite a few freelancers providing this service. It will cost you above $50 from them.
The unique thing about this service is that, if you don’t have the money to run ads, you can do the free way.
But, to be frank, this will take time. All you have to do is go to youtube and find YouTubers who have around 500-2000 subscribers. Check out their intros, if you think it’s ugly, you can email them from the about section of their channel talking about your business proposal.
Email as many people as you can, but don’t expect to get a client the first day itself!
If you want, you can provide a Youtube Outro service as well.

Storyboards are like comics where there will be a series of images which describes a particular story.
Film making industries usually use these Storyboards in their planning and production processes. They are literally, a good way to represent visual and technical requirements of a production.
