1. Choose your Product:

Choosing a product is the most crucial stage of starting an online business. Although, those who have made up their mind about the niche product can move on to the next step. And for those, who are bewildered by the infinite options of products to sell, this blog by Shopify can help you choose the legitimate product. A few well-established merchants have quoted that choosing a profitable product to trade was more difficult than selling itself. It is not that the products are so few: it is that they are so many. As A.G. Gardiner once quoted in one of his essays that “It is not poverty you suffer from, but an embarrassment of riches.”
The products available to sell are as many as the variety of human faces that make it difficult for one to choose. Nevertheless, we have some suggestions made here to pick the right product or array of products.

  1. Analyse your interest and expertise
  2. Evaluate all products lies in the niche expertise
  3. Research its worthiness and demand in the market
  4. Identify your target audience
  5. Locate the best suppliers for the raw material
  6. Analyse the competitors and their moves

2. Market research:

Once you know what to sell, now is the time to choose your niche market and competition. As the old saying goes, it is easier to fulfill the already created demand than to create one. You should select the product for which there exists a market. Analyse how many competitors you might have to compete with and then point out the features that differentiate your product and business. You may have to also rely on digital marketing services to get the recognition that you desire for your brand or business (read more here, if interested).

At this stage, it is advisable to do some thoro SWOT analysis. Defining your brand’s mission and vision will let you set a distinct impression of your brand in the digital world.

3. Define your business:

The most creative part of setting up your dream business is here, i.e., naming your business, creating a logo, and deciding the brand colours. This step is going to build your brand’s identity, which could possibly be transferred, if you have a material product to sell, onto the flexible packaging that may be used for packing and presenting the product, potentially helping to solidify the brand’s identity. Remember to choose a name that is easy to remember and has some connection with you or your products.

We would suggest you be more careful while choosing the brand’s colour. Every colour has some deep meaning. For instance, the colour blue conveys trust. The Logo and the brand’s colour express your message to prospects without words. So, while choosing it, you should be more careful. An additional tip is that it would be a good idea to use a professional design and branding company such as Cefar (https://www.cefar.co.uk/design/branding) to ensure that your branding is the best it can possibly be to attract consumers to your product and make a strong and long-lasting brand.
