Important Factors of Drop-shipping Price

The price of third-party logistics has always been the first focus of e-commerce sellers. After all, it is related to the cost and profitability of their own companies. Generally speaking, they need to provide some other data before receiving the quotation(product weight, quantity, and billing quantity , packaging methods, required storage area, etc.). So today we will analyze why we need to provide so much data, and what are the important price components of an order fulfillment company.

Because the product needs to be shipped by express delivery, the express delivery price will be closely related to the weight and the amount. It will be more favorable if the number of e-commerce sellers is relatively large.

Since e-commerce sellers need to deposit their goods in the warehouse of a warehousing agency, they need to use a certain storage area. There will be a fee for the lease of the warehouse area. However, unlike self-leasing warehouses, in order fulfillment warehouse, e-commerce sellers only need to lease the corresponding area according to the actual storage area they need, which avoids the waste of warehouse area.

  • Operating Expenses in the Warehouse

The operating expenses in the warehouse mainly include loading and unloading goods, warehouse management, picking, secondary packaging, etc. Then this cost will be related to factors such as quantity and packaging method. With more quantities, the warehouse management staff naturally needs more manpower and energy to manage the goods. When picking according to the order, it also needs to spend more time and energy to operate, resulting in increased prices. The packaging method depends on the customer’s requirements(such as direct bagging and delivery)and the need for ice packs, which can affect the final price.

Why Seasonality is Important for Marketing

Seasonality refers to periodic fluctuations that regularly occur in a predictable pattern based on a particular season, quarter, or month.

In marketing, seasonality is more than just throwing a few joyful light-hearted festive posts on your social media accounts.Why is this so?

Because each season comes specific noteworthy holidays, events and activities, which cause consumers to behave differently, hence, provide opportunities for businesses to thrive.
Examples of seasonal opportunities that have the power to boost your revenue and connect you with your audience include; Halloween, Thanksgiving, Black Friday, Cyber Monday, Christmas, New Year’s Eve/Day, Valentine’s Day.

1. Spend enough time forecasting

Sound predictions of demands and trends are no longer luxury items, but a necessity for most companies. If you’re to cope with seasonality, sudden changes in demand levels, price-cutting maneuvers of the competition, strikes, and large swings of the economy.

Forecasting can help you deal with that.

2. Keep a keen eye on search trends

Depending on your industry, your audience, your goals, and even the size of your company, it’s essential to identify and keep a keen eye on search trends.

Google Trends can be a beneficial tool to help highlight the broader search [or seasonality] habits over a given time frame.

Whatever you use, it’s important to use a variety of tools together (from Google to your CRM system to a customizable analytics template) to track your customers’ behavior, any correlations among a specific audience, and your performance.

3. Scour websites, blogs, online forums and discussion boards

It is important to analyze key trends often, statistics or research on blogs, news sites or forums that gather data and break down industry reports into a format you can easily understand and digest.

4. Use different tools and analytics systems

It is also smart to use different tools and analytics systems such as Google trends (which I also mentioned above), Google Adwords to better pinpoint exact keywords and queries and identify the direction seasonal trends and opportunities.

Last one but not the end, adjusting your message, budget, and approach for seasonality.

Seasonality has a significant influence on the strategies that organizations put in place. Additionally, purchasing habits tend to shift based on the activities that consumers participate in, and online businesses need to take this into account well ahead of time. While seasonal marketing is all about having excellent timing, unique content, and a perfect campaign execution that earns engagement, and ultimately, sales.
