AI dropshipping: The guide for your business

A couple of years ago we kind of wrote it off as futuristic pipe dreams. Now, (nearly) all of us are avid users. We're talking about AI of course! The self-learning tool designed to make our lives a lot easier. Including yours as an ambitious dropshipping entrepreneur.

AI dropshipping: The future is now!

As an entrepreneur, you have plenty of work on your plate. Lucky for you, using AI (Artificial Intelligence) can give you a lot more breathing room. By giving an AI tool targeted instructions you can have it solve problems for you to a certain extent. For instance, have AI perform repetitive tasks, collect data or provide customer support. As you can see, AI dropshipping is the ideal expansion of your team, minus the wage expenses!

How to implement AI in your dropshipping business

There are a variety of AI tools and implementation opportunities that can boost your online business. Let’s look into some of them.

Unique product descriptions

When you partner with a dropshipping supplier, they often provide pre-made product descriptions. Copying these may save you a lot of time, but it won’t benefit you in the long run when all your competitors use the exact same description. Cue AI tools, such as ChatGPT and Google Gemini, that can help stand out by you quickly coming up with unique texts to go with your products. Try playing with different prompts to find a text that fits your brand identity, for example:

Prompt 1: Rewrite an existing description
“Rewrite the text below with a minimum of 500 words and 3 paragraphs. Add a title to each paragraph. [description]”

Prompt 2: Rewrite existing description including keywords
“Rewrite the text below with a minimum of 500 words and 3 paragraphs. Add a title to each paragraph. Incorporate the following keywords into the text: [keyword_1], [keyword_2] and [keyword_3]. [description]”

Unique product images

Want to take it up a notch? Use AI to generate unique product images! People are known to be very visually oriented. That’s why it’s important to provide high-quality and appealing images of products on your website. Moreover, it helps you stand out from competitors who opt to use the default images that dropshipping suppliers provide. Some of our recommendations when it comes to good AI tools for images are Canva and Flair.ai.

Automation

The more you automate, the easier you’ll make it for yourself. For instance, you could have AI automatically process any product, stock as well as price changes your suppliers make. That way you’re able to ensure your shop is always up-to-date. You could also have orders forwarded to suppliers instantly. Quite convenient!

Customer support

However clear your story may be, customers will have questions. And they preferably want them answered straight away. Save yourself time by outsourcing simple questions on item information, tracking and FAQ to AI. How? By using a chatbot! These virtual employees are available 24/7 to to help you solve customer problems. As a matter of fact, we have our very own digital employee here at Woosa. Have you met Fin yet?

First things first. Before getting your own chatbot, consider which tasks it will need to perform. Then check which chatbot options different parties offer. At Woosa we use Intercom for our chatbot, but you could also take a look at A.I. Zendesk.
