Ideas Before Venturing Into Wholesale Marketing Business

Aug 17, 2007
So you have decided that you want to get into the whole wholesale marketing business. This is great as it is one of the fastest growing industries on the net. Actually it is one of the fastest growing industries period. So what have you decided to sell? Did you figure that part out or are you still up in the air with this one? There are some very important things to consider when going with wholesale Internet marketing. Capital is the big issue, yet many people who are savvy can get around this one. Sales pitch, well many people can research what seems to be working for others in this field. The biggest issue seems to be the storage and product capacity problem.

Have you ever considered selling stuff that people collect? What about sports cards? This is a very big market and you could easily find space in even a modest sized home for the product to be shipped in large quantity. This is a market that is taking off and there are people in every walk of life that collects sports cards. From hockey cards or baseball cards the product is still the same and they are small and easy to store until it is sold and shipped. You see the problem with choosing a large-scale item such as clothing or stereo equipment means that you will need adequate space to store it until you ship it. If you are just starting out, renting a storage space for the product makes for a sure fire crash in your profits. Not to mention the insurance you will want to take out to keep you and the wholesaler safe in the event of theft.

This is why smaller items that are still popular may be the best bet for positive results and a chance to keep all of your profits. The option is there for the wholesaler to keep the product at there storage facility until the sale is final and it is even possible for them to ship the item to the customer saving you the trouble. The major problem with this is everything that the wholesaler has to do, such as store and ship the items eats away at your profits. If they store it, they will charge you for the use of space. If they ship it, they will ship it the way they want regardless if that ends up costing you more. Either way it matters not to them, because it will come out of your share in the end. This then takes you from a legitimate business partner to a simple run of the mill salesperson without most of the perks. Do you see a nasty change in your plans now?
