Wholesale Business: Should I Start Online or Offline?
Many of you have probably own the urge of starting a wholesale business offline or online here with the Internet. Both options are fantastic- I live them both. One of them is actually better for bringing in profits than the other one. One of them is riskier than the other one. Many of us know the answer, many of us do not have a single clue of which is the better one for our entrepreneurial start up wholesale suppliers. If you had been anything like me in the past, you probably have had the goal and even dream of having your own Internet mini-mall online. It is fantastic when you have an Internet mini-mall selling what you love and feel good upon selling it. If you have passion for what you are selling, what will stop you from having success with it? Probably nothing- if you are persistent and take action. But of course, let me go right to the heart of this lesson.
The difference between having an online wholesale business and offline wholesale business, are numerous. For starters, you do not pay thousands of dollars a month with an online wholesale business mini-mall. You do not have to pay employees at the beginning and start of an online wholesale start up. You do not need to leave your house at 7:00am to arrive early, just so you can receive customers. You do not need to chase clientele as in the online world- clients come to you, you do not need to go to them by chasing them 24×7. The differences are vast and outstanding when it comes to the differences between online and offline wholesale businesses. With an online wholesale mini-store, you can reach thousands and even millions of clients. It has been proven as a fact with the world biggest auction house, eBay. You can start by looking for reliable distributors and wholesalers and you can be in business in no time. It is as easy as 1,2,3 to start.
The difficult part comes when you need to know who is reliable when it comes to investing your money and who are the distributors that you need in order to receive the biggest possible net profit out of the items that you are selling. It does not get any simpler than that this day. The issue comes when you start buying all the wholesale list online and you start getting frustrated because they all seem to be a scam or a bunch of outdated business contacts that either sell for $0.99 or $9.99. Most people know about the headaches those kind of contacts give, they probably do not deliver or they are a middleman trying to make a commission out of a sale from a their own items that are being advertised as wholesale or below wholesale. It got me crazy 6 years ago, now it is different, as I am financially free thanks to the whole experience I received from past Internet scams and the many trial and errors from the past. Fact is- you get what you paid for most of the time. I learn that the hard way, but I am happy it went that way. I have wholesale businesses in many niches, and I sell wholesale items all from the comfort of my home. It can be you today or it can be your friend tomorrow. Today you are student, tomorrow the teacher? I hope so- the wholesale business is fantastic!
