So, as a dropshipper, finding that famous winning product should be your first concern if you want to make dropshipping or e-commerce a real business and make a living from it.
There are several product search tools. In this article, I present to you Minea which is one of the most reputable tools in terms of finding a winning product. It is a very complete tool that has proven itself with dropshippers and e-merchants in general.
How to find a winning product with Minea?
Answers to this question in this article.
What is Minea ?
Minea is nothing but a product finding tool that makes life easier for e-merchants and dropshippers. In all online sales businesses, the product research stage is the most delicate. If you fail this step, it is very likely that you will face enough difficulties in the further process.
In other words, a bad product will not be sold for long even with the best marketing arguments.
Indeed, to find the product that will sell easily, you will have to spy on the market and already see what works with competitors. This is what Minea interviews. The role of the tool is to spy on competitors and collect relevant information (ads, marketing strategies, store analysis results) on the products they sell.
You can base yourself on this information to choose the product that you will sell on your online store as well as the different marketing strategies that you must use to sell these products without difficulty.
Minea makes life even easier for its users thanks to its chrome extension which allows the use of the app on a smartphone or tablet.
You can already test Minea for free to discover more of its features. On the other hand, the basic option of the app costs only 49 € per month. For more advanced searches, you can opt for the Premium offer which costs 99€.
The Minea adspy tool and its features.
After your subscription, you will have direct access to the Minea app. The interface is very intuitive and allows anyone to quickly get to grips with the tool to start looking for a product.
At the very top of the main interface, you have the search bar in which you can directly type a keyword (Buy now, Purchase now, Get now, Free shipping…) to start your product search.
Further down on the main interface, you have the list of the top 10 products of the day. Every day, Minea makes a compilation of the 10 best products from the various ads collected on social networks. Several e-merchants have admitted to having found winning products in this list offered by the app. Do not hesitate to test some products from this list.
On the other hand, if you want to start your product search directly yourself, you can click on one of the platforms located in the left interface (Facebook, Pinterest, Tiktok).
For each social network, Minea displays, by default, the latest ads that its algorithms have collected. It is up to you to use the filters to refine the ads to display only those related to dropshipping or e-commerce.
How to use filters to find a winning product ?
On Minea, you can filter your searches by:
Keywords: This filter allows you to search for ads based on keywords. In dropshipping, keywords like Buy now,, Get now, Free shipping, Free shipping are widely used. You can thus search with these keywords to display only dropshipping ads.
Ad view date: The ad view date filter allows you to filter your results by the date Minea’s algorithms discovered the ad on social media. In dropshipping, it is advisable to prioritize the most recent ads. So stay within the range of the last 14 or 30 days to increase your chances of finding the latest products launched on the market.
Country: Applying this filter allows you to see ads that work in one country in order to duplicate them in another country. Since the biggest winning product trends most of the time leave the United States, it can be interesting to apply this filter to quickly find products that are already selling well in the American market.
E-commerce platform: most dropshipping stores are often created on popular platforms such as Shopify and WooCommerce. You can therefore optimize your results in order to display only 100% dropshipping products.
Interactions: interactions on an ad represent likes, shares and comments. The higher this data, the better the product has high potential. They are therefore a key indicator in your search. So apply the different filters to have only ads that have solicited engagement from users.
Media type: the media filter allows you to filter ads based on the visual used. Generally in e-commerce and dropshipping, advertisers prefer to use videos to show the use of the product. Feel free to select the videos in this filter to increase your chances of finding winning dropshipping products.
Several other filters are always available on Minea to allow you to optimize your results. Feel free to experiment with them to see which ones work best for you.
