In this post, I will tell you about how you can make your dropshipping business automated and make 6 figures easily in your sleep.
This is not a step by step tutorial but a brief explanation on how dropshipping can be automated.
3 Steps To Automating Your Dropshipping Business
1. Customer service
When you try to scale up you are going to get a lot of emails, comments, etc, and you need to respond to them to maintain a good relationship with your customers.
How To Make Customer Service Automated?
I would recommend this tool called ZenDesk. ZenDesk helps you automatically reply to emails that your customer sends you.
Basically you can create macros which are pre-written responses to most asked queries.
you can also hire customer service representatives. Upload a job post on upwork.com and you will get many people willing to work for you.
Here are some few tips:
I would recommend paying $7-8 per hour, you get what you pay for.
only hire people with experience using ZenDesk.
communicate with your team on skype when you need to be.
put a lot of work training you first CSR, then get them to train the new ones.
Here is an example of a job posting you can upload on Upwork.
2. Automating Order Fulfilment
First of all is would recommend stopping using aliexpress and look for a dropshipping agent if you are focusing on one product store. By focusing on one product, can streamline your fulfillment process.
one more thing that you can do is pay your dropshipping agent in advance so that he is never out of stock. This way he can ship your product as soon as possible.
How to find a dropshipping agent?
There are a lot of drop shippers in China that can’t be trusted. They will take your money and not send you items, or send you illegitimate items that are illegal. The easiest way to find drop shippers that you can trust is through SaleHoo. SaleHoo is an online directory that has over 8,000+ drop shippers, wholesalers, and liquidators. Using a directory like SaleHoo is good because you can ensure you will be dealing with verified suppliers you can trust

There is a Shopify app known as dianxiaomi. This app allows your dropshipping agent to get real-time information about your Shopify orders. So when you receive an order it also gets shows up on your supplier’s warehouse. This way you make your order fulfillment completely automated.
3. Automating Marketing
Automating marketing is the hardest part to do, especially when you are testing out new products.
You can outsource it to add agencies but I would not recommend it, because marketing agencies would not work with the same passion as you will they will just work hard enough to make it to your benchmark which according to me is not enough.
I would recommend learning marketing yourself because that’s what dropshippers are ‘Marketers’.
However when you have found your product and you trying to scale up its quite easy to make a big chunk of marketing automated.
You can use this tool known as reveal bot. This is quite an expensive tool therefore not recommended for beginners, though it has a free trial.
