What products should
I always tell people not to
try to sell what is popular. First of all, because everyone is
doing it. Secondly, you need to sell something that you know and
To make the site work, you
will need pages with articles and descriptions of the products.
if you don't enjoy what you are doing it will show.
You will find hundreds of
articles on our websites that talk about website hosting. That is
likely how you found us in the first place. If we were only in it
for the money, we would not have much info to offer. Building
help sections on pagebuzz with over 150 pages would be difficult.
We would not pay someone to build that for us, because we have to
support the clients in the end. We have to know what we are doing
beyond any of our clients.
You will need to be the same.
Don't sell cars just because it makes money. If you don't know
anything about cars, you are setting yourself up for failure.
Choose an industry you like
and something you are knowledgable about.
If you like making candles,
sell candles. You will need to know the industry. You need to
know where to advertise, how to get the product at the best price
and what the sales margins are. If you don't know the product,
you will be lost when a site talks about tea lights and votives.
It is not the product that
matters, it is how you sell it.
Since your plan is to sell it
online, you need to know how other sites are selling it, how much
and what types of volumes they sell.
You could sell the product on
ebay, but that would be ignoring the other 90% of the market. You
need to know what that market is and how to get to it.
Having a sales plan is
essential, but the next best thing is at least knowing something
about the product you are trying to sell.
