I was literally making an outstanding amount of money with my drop-shipping cat jewellery during 2017 util it got saturated.
I had my store, and the primary traffic source is from YouTube and Instagram.
There were lots of cats channels and pages with millions of view pouring in every single day.
All I did was to reach out to the channel owner to promote my product for a couple hundred dollars, and I made 5x the money.
It's not until they all figured out what's happening when more and more people started to copy the same formula.
Now the people who are drop-shipping make less whereas the smart cat channel makes a good amount of money by selling various affiliate products.
In the cat or dog niche, you can sell from food to all possible stuff that humans use.
