5 things to look out for when joining Facebook groups for dropshipping
You would have seen literally hundreds of Facebook groups for dropshippers, but not all of them are created equal! Some are filled with inexperienced sellers who probably don't make sales, and many are packed with trolls and spammers.
Be alert to the following.
1. Scammers and spammers
The dropshipping industry is not exempt from scammers and spammers. They lurk in Facebook groups for dropshippers, some more than others.
It's annoying, but often, you can expect a Facebook message like this when you post a question or an answer!
And any company that says profits will come quickly with little work involved is probably not legitimate. Also, be alert to the lack of contact information and requests for extra fees to be paid.
These scammers prey on those new to dropshipping who are unsure of the steps. Educating yourself is key to avoiding scammers.
2. Fake dropshipping agents
Why do so many people get fooled by dropship scams? Because scammers are pretty clever when it comes to SEO (search engine optimization). When you search for a phrase or term, the scammer's details appear high on the first page and the listing, therefore, seems legitimate.
So be aware that page rank on Google does not automatically validate the website and the company's legitimacy. These fake agents will hide their source and pretend to be the supplier directly.
Many counterfeit dropshipping agents in the market will try to sell you cheap products and take your money. By the time you receive the products, the sellers will have closed the website, and your money will be gone.
3. Unverified information
Due to the nature of Facebook, a lot of the articles posted on Facebook are not verified and are often just a person's thoughts.
These opinions can be confusing for those who are new to dropshipping. My advice would always be to verify any information or advice received using other sources before acting on it.
4. Unsolicited messages
Unfortunately, Facebook groups attract spam messages like flies to honey.
These unsolicited messages are often in the form of “Hey, how are you doing?” “Let's connect on LinkedIn” or “I really like your stuff and think you should know”!
Best strategy? Ignore and delete.
