I have not forgotten about the “Starting a Wholesale Business” series / project. I’m honestly just having a very difficult time deciding what product to sell. For anyone reading this, bear with me while I write out loud…
I’m trying to stay away from electronics because I don’t want to deal with returns. I want a product that is very unlikely to be returned because it’s not functioning properly. I’ve looked into iPods and other consumer electronics, but to sell major brand names, you’ll probably need to become an official distributor of that company if you want to make any kind of profit. For simplicity’s sake, I’m avoiding this as well.
The product needs to be fairly light and small. I don’t want to sell a $20 product and charge $15 for shipping. If I could sell volcanic rocks, that would be ideal.? Light…small…and not likely to malfunction.? Hmmm….
I have a few ideas that I’m kicking around, but nothing is really inspiring me yet.? I’m hoping to make a decision by this weekend.? If you’re the charitable kind, you could go to the product selection part of this series and leave a comment. I’ve had quite a few views of the mindmap, but no one has made any additions yet.? Maybe I need to go back and re-read that post and follow some of my own advice.
