- It is Lucrative.
- You are not subject to any boss. You only have to deliver the best service to your client. But not as an employee.

You work when there is a client and that can mean unstable income due to the absence of a sure earning range. Sometimes you make a huge amount, but sometimes, the income drops. But it’s okay because it’s business, and what business does is actively seek for clients to increase their clientele.
To get more clients as a freelancer, there are certain websites where clients search for people who can help out with the services they need. You can register on such websites and get more clients.

And it requires nothing much to start. You may have to stop looking down on yourself. Explore your capabilities, and put your good marketing skills to work.
Dropshipping requires your marketing skills. Through your blog posts or social media platforms, you can sell different goods to people. But guess what? Your work ends when your client or buyer makes the payment for the goods. The whole delivery stress is not for you.
Steps to drop shipping
Through your good marketing skills, get a client to place an order for a particular product that you can access.
Get the order and money across to the manufacturer or whole seller whom you’re marketing for.
Once the order is taken and the product delivered, you get paid.
Sometimes, all it takes is to get a higher price from your client and pay less to the supplier. For instance, if a client orders a pair of Crocs footwear at $15, but the wholesale price of the same footwear is $10, instantly, you’ve made a gain of $5.
- It isn’t stressful
- A client’s order has covered your starting capital.
- You may be blamed for the mistakes of the supplier or manufacturing company via late delivery or not getting exactly what was ordered.
- To make this business better, you have to liaise with well-trusted companies to avoid being scammed. There are many online shops such as Amazon, Jumia, Shopify, and other private shop owners you can work with.
- You must also monitor your clients to avoid the trauma of “what I ordered vs what I got”.
