How to set up a products based business

Starting your own business is an exciting time, especially if you are going to operate in the products market and you get to look through all the beautiful items that you are going to stock and then sell on to your customers. In order to be a successful products based business there are a number of things that you need to consider.

Storage – if you are going to stock items yourself and sell them on you will need to think about where you are going to store these. Are you going to need a warehouse space or storage elsewhere where you can keep your products or are you going to have smaller amounts kept by and order more frequently from your stockists?

Shop or not – are you going to have a physical shop or operate solely online? There is not right or wrong to this question and it will depend very much on your personal preference as well as the budget that you have available to be able to buy or lease a physical store.


Delivery – have you got a contract in place with a Same Day Courier Bracknell way such as UKTDL or one local to your area to ensure that you have your parcels delivered to your customers in a safe and efficient manner. If you are planning on offering delivery or operating solely online you will need to think about what your delivery charging structure is going to look like.
