Pretty much every marketer would have had their entrepreneurship senses burning as soon as Pokemon GO was released and it went crazy viral.
I'm a massive fan of Pokemon. I've played every game since it came out on Nintendo so I know how crazy some fans can get.
Some Marketers got it right and in the last month I've come across some great drop shipping campaigns that I've been able to make money from. I'm not going to say which one below is making me money but know that pokemon GO is hot and will continue to be hot for a while.
The below campaigns are winning campaigns.
They're not just items I 'think' might do well, I know they're doing well because the social engagement and many have shares in the 1,000s which means people are spending money on it which means they're selling!
Don't just copy the campaign though - that won't work. Use it as inspiration.
Pokemon GO Battery Packs
Pokemon GO is a massive drain on batteries so people have started buying battery enhancers.
Crazy how these are selling now when they've been around for ages!
Marketing is a lot about HOW you market certain products.
I've seen normal hoodies sell in the 1000's because they're being sold as 'Assassin Creed Hoodies'.
So these battery enhancers are being sold as 'Pokemon Go Battery Boosters/Enhancers' that you can plug into your phone and have more battery power while you're roaming around!
I've seen them sell for $49.95! Wow crazy.
Considering you can buy them for $21 - $25 on Aliexpress,
Of course, people would have hit the custom tee market. But you need to be really careful here.
I've had a great campaign suspended and all my sales reversed because my shirt said 'pokeholic' on it.
They're pretty stringent when it comes to Pokemon Trademarks and Licenses so I wouldn't be doing these on Teespring. They're pretty strict!
People have gotten pretty creative and combined the whole Game of Thrones theme. 'House...' is a game of thrones thing so whoever added it to pokemon Go made good money.
I've seen the above campaign kill it!
Not to mention team shirts selling in other countries. Remember to translate your ad copy to the country you're marketing too.
Experienced marketers know to make their own version of these tees. Add a twist like the GoT one above or even a completely new design like this.
How good is that design!
These look like normal pendants and they are.
You can get them on Aliexpress for a few bucks but they're being sold as Team Mystic Pendants!
Team mystic, valor or instinct with their legendary bird representing their team.
People are selling a tonne of Pokemon Go stuff but for every product I see doing well, I see another 10 completely flopping.
Don't expect your next Pokemon GO campaign to make you a millionaire just because it has a picture of a Pikachu on it.
Some products just hit it off because they hit the right customer excitement point. We never know which these products are until we test them.
So get creative and start testing 10s, even 100s of products. The market is there and if you find a good product you can make 10k+.
I have 3 products winning right now so again, people in this niche are buying 😉
