DS Domination profile: is drop-shipping dead?

Since DS Domination has been so quiet these past few months, it’s time to explore the possibility that drop shipping may be over and done with.

Mixed reviews are coming in on DS Domination, but it’s mostly predicated on drop-shipping.

Buying and selling between eBay, Amazon, and other big-box sellers to reap profits from price differentials is hardly a new business concept any longer. It was when DS Domination was founded, two years ago.

But now in late 2015, is drop shipping dead?

Let’s see what Google Trends has to say.

To answer the question, we can turn to Google Trends. As you can see, interest in drop shipping has remained steady and stable during the time DS Domination has been in business.

The same cannot be said, however, for interest in DS Domination. Follow the red line on the bar graph and you’ll see a steady downward decline in internet searches on the company name.

MLMs who enjoy initial success often find it much harder to maintain profits after the one-year mark.It’s especially difficult after two years, which is where we’re at with DS Domination.Founded in late 2013, they seem to have all but disappeared from the front lines of MLM these days. I wrote about this a few months ago and nothing seems to have changed since then.

With an average of one post per month on their Facebook page (1), a fleeing CEO (review) and a marketing campaign targeting all the DS Domination “quitters”, things still don’t look so good even after this summer’s launch of DS Domination 2.0.

And ranking hits for top team Unit of Prosperity all date from at least a year ago.

If drop shipping isn’t dead, then what’s up with DS Domination?

Consider the timeliness of the product and how much that had to do with its launch success. Back then, everyone wanted to learn how to make money by drop shipping.

Fast forward two years and it’s hard to miss all the drop shipping tutorials available…for free, no less!

And as for a platform like what DS domination offers: plenty of competition in that department as well. According to Workcrowd, which reviews software, the drop-shipping software category should grow over 300% in the next 10 years.

In fact, the competition might better explain why DS Domination is hiding in the shadows these days.

With companies like Vendornet (now “ebay enterprise”) sporting highly professional-looking websites  and superior products and services, how’s an amateurish logo with a roughly-drawn fist (that’s DS Domination) likely to compete?  What’s more, there’s no recruiting involved with the new companies.

Next to these new startups, DS Domination looks pretty shabby and suspect.

As with so many online sources of income, so goes DS Domination.

Between all the free info on how to make money drop shipping, and the new crop of platforms ready to automate the processes for you, it’s no wonder DS Domination is fading. The only saving grace is that DS Domination might be more cost effective for people who are good at network marketing but who don’t have the cash to spend on the newer platforms.

But since it’s all based on recruiting, it might just be getting tougher and tougher to make money in the DS Domination. For the newbies and amateurs, drop shipping may indeed be dead. It’s covered by the big boys now- loopholes are closing and there’s no longer a lot of wiggle room in which to reap profits for the cowboys that started it all several years ago.

Welcome to your online career.
