There are many Facebook and other social media pages that allow startups and resellers to make a name and money for themselves. Due to the convenience of these sites as a marketing and business platform, more people are getting into the business of reselling.
Think you’re ready to get into one? Whether you plan to sell clothes, shoes, or even kitchen cabinet units, here are some things you can keep in mind to ensure success in your venture.
1. Source your goods
Your sources should be priced lower than the market to give room for your own profit. In products like kitchen cabinets and other things that can be customised, having a single source who can offer different types of products for you to sell can be an advantage.
2. Be professional
Even though you’re just operating online, professionalism is still as important. Knowing how to properly deal with inquiries, complaints, and feedback will have a huge impact on your business. Always learn to act accordingly.
3. Have a system
Getting multiple orders can be confusing, especially if it involves customisation and other types of requests. Therefore, it pays to have a system that works. Take your time in learning what works best for you and your supplier. That way, you will be able to serve your customers more efficiently.
4. Establish your niche
Like in any business, it pays to have a target niche. If you’re into kitchen cabinet and furniture, having homemakers as your main customers make sense. Posting in such groups, or addressing homeowners on your posts can help make an impact.
Like other businesses, getting into reselling has its own ropes. Keeping these tips in mind can help make you have a strong foundation to start at.
