Sneak Peek: @RetailPhil’s New Series Helps You Crush All Things Commerce
As Hubba’s resident retail expert, I get asked a ton of questions by Hubba brands. While many of these can be covered in a quick and simple blog post, I understand that sometimes, that just doesn’t cut it.
That’s where Hubba University comes in! There, you can find a collection of courses comprised of in-depth, educational videos that cover everything you’ve ever needed to know, whether you’re a newly built company or an established brand. As the Hubba U professor, I’ll go over the ABCs of retail – from logistics and sales to marketing and finance.
One of the most common questions I get from Hubba brands is: what is drop shipping?
Drop shipping is a form of fulfillment. It allows an e-commerce retailer to sell without worrying about where to put stock or ever even have to handle product. Instead, purchases made through their site are shipped directly to consumers via a third-party. As a retailer, drop shipping is pretty much a guaranteed win, but what does it mean from a brand’s standpoint?
The lesson above is part of a 3-part Hubba U course. In it, I provide a detailed explanation of what drop shipping is, who should use it and why, and the advantages and disadvantages to a new brand hoping to expand beyond local reach.
