Lieu Sourcing to a Solid Business

It used to be that most sellers would start off with things they could find locally. Local sourcing was very valuable! Especially eBay sellers! Scouring yard sales, antique malls, flea markets, second hand shops, pawn shops and more to find that amazing little nugget that is going to make you way more than you paid for it!

I know! I was one of them! My sister and I had a little eBay side business way back in 1998. We had tons of fun going to yard sales & estate auctions and reselling things from people that had no idea that their item was worth way more than they were selling it for.

But that was just a fun little side hustle. We weren’t in it to make millions of dollars.. But we were in it for the thrill of finding something for $1.00 and selling it for $100.00!

We didn’t always find something at every stop. So some days we wouldn’t have anything new to offer and other times we overpaid because we thought it would go for more online. Remember, this was also back before smartphones and being able to look things up at a moments notice. This simply was not a sustainable business model. But also even more so because the climate of online sales was taking a drastic change and if you wanted to keep up, you too had to make a drastic change.

Moving Beyond Local Sourcing

The biggest problems with local sourcing are 1. it’s very time consuming 2. product selection is limited and 3. product availability is not consistent. So when you are ready to move your business to the next level, then you need to find legitimate wholesalers to work with.

You can still do your local sourcing, but if you want to grow your business, you need products you can sell over and over and over and that’s where wholesale suppliers come into the picture.

But not just any wholesale supplier, a factory authorized distributor or wholesaler is where you should focus your time and energy. These companies get their products directly from the manufacturer. When you are so close to the top of the wholesale chain, you get better prices & better service. These companies have to maintain the values and conditions that the manufacturers have set on the products and it is their responsibility to ensure that the retailers are also following those guidelines.

So remember, that there are MANY brands a newer online seller simply cannot sell. Large brand companies already either have ALL of the retailers they want selling their products or their minimums are so high that a small retailer simply cannot buy in to even try selling the products.

Stop Spinning Your Wheels Hearing No’s

You can most definitely find genuine, legitimate wholesalers on your own, but why not leave it to the professionals? It’s a time consuming process, full of rejection and fact finding. You want to make sure that you are working with the best supplier possible for those products and so that supplier research for any business, new or established, is extremely important.

We’ve already been doing the work for you for over 20 years.

We have been providing the Directory of Certified Wholesaler and Dropshippers to online retailers (and offline retailers) for a very long time.

Finding and verifying the legitimacy of every single supplier before adding them to our Directory is what we are most proud of and do extremely well. We do not rely on search engine searches for “wholesale” or “dropship” or other directories to do the work for us. Digging through the trenches and utilizing trade shows and other means to locate the real manufacturers and factory authorized distributors of the products for our members is what we spend our time on.

“We want the best of the best in the Directory because we only want the best for our members. ” Tisha Hedges, Director of Operations

We then reach out to those companies and start the process of learning more about them and if they could be a fit. If they qualify, we will add them to the Directory for our members to find.

What is Product Sourcing?

Product Sourcing simply means, “Finding products to sell through your business.” This, of course to us, refers to buying products at real wholesale prices, and then selling them online for a profit. Product Sourcing is something that truly successful online retailers take very seriously. It’s a cornerstone of their success.

What does proper Product Sourcing do for my online business?

Among other things, the internet is a wonderful eCommerce marketplace. It’s a tremendous business opportunity for very little cost. Many people start small online, then go on to earn impressive full time incomes.

However, many people starting out run into issues they don’t understand and then give up because they don’t have the right information they need to run their business competitively.

If you dream of owning a successful online business, you CAN do it. There are a few things you really need to understand though, and Product Sourcing is one of them.

Proper Product Sourcing

Doing your product sourcing properly, does several things for you and your online business;– Allows you to earn the highest possible profit margins– You can be flexible in the products you offer to your customers– Allows you to effectively compete with other retailers’ prices

Remember that the internet is a price driven market. If you are not doing your Product Sourcing the right way, you’ll find that there are many other online retailers that offer the same products as you do, but at lower prices. You won’t be able to compete with them. Those sellers who offer lower prices ARE making a profit. The difference is that they are probably paying less for the products they sell because they understand how to Source Products the right way.

Up Next…

Over the course of the next few weeks, we will talk about the different aspects of product sourcing. How to find products to sell and what to avoid. So stay tuned!

But if you are ready to get started NOW with REAL Wholesalers with REAL Wholesale prices, then get access to our Directory today!

Find over 8000 real wholesale suppliers. Thousands of dropshippers. The suppliers represent more than 17 MILLION product types, so there is something for everyone!

Dropshipping is NOT a Total Solution

Dropshipping is a great way to get started selling products online, but don’t make that your complete business strategy. You need a plan to move beyond dropshipping if you want to grow your business.

Dropshipping Has Limits

With dropshipping you cannot sell any product you want to. Many companies require their retailers to purchase and hold inventory and even others already have all the retailers they want or need. So when you dream of selling things like the latest Nike shoes or Kate Spade handbags using dropshippers, think again.

Another dropshipping limit is prices. Yes, you are getting wholesale prices if using real dropshipping suppliers (like the ones found in our Directory). But you are not getting the absolute best price possible, because you are not buying in volume. The more you buy, the cheaper each individual item gets because you are getting volume discounts on top of the base wholesale price.

Move Beyond Dropshipping

You need to realize that dropshipping is only part of your overall product sourcing solution. As your sales pick up and you begin to see profits coming in, you can start to reinvest them into purchasing inventory. That way, you are able to take advantage of the better pricing and higher margins that come with buying wholesale in bulk. Your drop shipping will identify the products that sell well for you, so you don’t have to invest any money into untried inventory that might not sell.

While you’ll find many situations in which drop shipping is the best fit for your business needs, it’s not a good idea to limit yourself to using only drop shipping. Not one method of sourcing products is the most effective solution for every situation. That’s why, as your business grows, you need to branch out and expand.

Our Product Sourcing Solution

Our Members already have a leg up on the competition, because not only do they have access to real dropshipping suppliers, but they also have access to thousands of light bulk wholesalers.

Light bulk is a term that we coined to indicate suppliers with low minimum orders to make buying products more affordable for newer businesses. So when our members are ready, they can reach out to the light bulk suppliers as well to start holding some of that smaller inventory.

We are always adding new light bulk and dropshipping suppliers to the Directory every business day. Check out what the Directory has offer by CLICKING HERE.

The Importance of Having a Mentor

Every person that has ever achieved great success in their lives had the help from others. No one can do it alone, which is why having a mentor is crucial to have if you want to succeed.

Steve Jobs was mentored by Robert Friedland Dr. Ed Roberts mentored Bill GatesBing Crosby was mentor to Frank Sinatra…the list goes on and on in for any aspect of life or goal!

So why do you need one?

A mentor will help you achieve what you want, as fast as possible. They will provide you guidance to help you succeed and navigate to avoid the mistakes that THEY made. So you will learn from their mistakes versus learning from you own, which will only set you back and slow your goal!

Choosing a Mentor

So when you find someone in your niche that has a valuable course or information, invest in it, because it will save you so much time! But how to find that person?

Look to anyone that has success in the area that you are in. The last thing you want to do is try and learn from someone who has no idea and is trying to fake it. Then when you find that person, ASK. Simply ASK them if they will mentor you, or FIND if they already have a course or information.

WARNING!

I have seen so many young “guru’s” that think they have they answer for everything. They talk fast, use great keywords, show you amazing images of things that you desire to have… DO NOT BE FOOLED. They are simply recycling information they found in other places or talking to someone else that has the answer! Do don’t type “business mentor” into a search engine without being prepared for an onslaught of scammy looking messages.

Look to a company you trust for recommendations or a person you trust that can point you in the right direction or do that careful research yourself to find one.. (make sure to check that person out as much as you can!!!)

Most of the readers for our newsletter and blog are trying to sell online, or have been selling online for a long time and are always looking to take their business to the next level.

Picking a Niche is Important with the help of Salehoo

Every day, we get emails here for customer service where a brand new entrepreneur is asking about datafeeds and integrations because they want to offer THOUSANDS of products in lots of different categories on their website. They dream of being the next AMAZON or WALMART.

It is so wonderful that you have these big, lofty dreams. I think everyone should have at least one goal and work on it. But, I’m sorry to tell you that you have already failed before you even started. You can’t accomplish this dream as a new beginner. Every large company has started small and built to where they are today. It’s about growth and progress.

Amazon was an online bookstore.Walmart was a very small general type store on a Main St. in a town in Arkansas. (You can still visit that store, it’s now a museum.)

If you even attempt to blow up to their level in just a few years, you are going to be stressed out, overworked, have spent A LOT of money and be not much further ahead than where you started or you most likely have quit already. (which typically happens)

The Importance of Picking a Niche

Amazon started as a bookstore in Jeff Bezos’s home garage, because at that time, he researched and found that books were in super high demand, he could get lots of different titles and the prices were low enough from his suppliers to make a good profit. That was then.

Now Jeff did something important, that other highly successful online entrepreneurs have done. STEP ONE: RESEARCH to find what was in DEMAND and that YOU CAN SELL online to make a PROFIT.

Sure, you can fiddle around and guess and try things and fail. But how about actually doing some legitimate research and learn how to do it right?

The Best Guide for Picking a Niche

This is where SellNiches.com can greatly help your new online business. They teach BEGINNERS just like you, how to find those profitable niche markets so you can also work on achieving those big goals of yours!

Their bundle of digital products will clearly teach you the fastest and easiest ways to pick great product niches to sell online.

Working with Multiple Dropshippers

Sometimes it may be necessary to work with multiple dropshippers for your store. Because just one might not have all that you need. So learning how to manage working with multiple dropshipping suppliers will greatly enhance your business. You can expand your product offerings and by that attract even more customers and that will increase your competitive edge.

But, if you don’t have solid organization and extra measures put into place for everything to run smoothly, you can end up with some added frustrations too.

Choose the Right Dropshippers

This is the most crucial part of selling any product online. If you don’t have good dropshipping suppliers in your corner, you are already setup for failure. Find the best dropshipping suppliers at WorldwideBrands.com. We have already taken each supplier through a verification process to ensure no middlemen, no scams and no fraud! Real wholesalers, real dropshipping, real wholesale prices.

Critical Things to Understand

Make sure that you fully understand how to get the product information from the supplier. Whether that is a datafeed, or you get the information from their catalog and you enter it manually. If the supplier has a lot of products, and it’s manual work, you may want to choose another supplier to work with. You will have to basically transcribe all that product information manually and then check it all manually. It will be too time consuming if you plan on working with multiple suppliers. To avoid confusion and turmoil, you must make sure to record all your events or transactions with technologies like Blockchain event api.

If it is a manual process and the supplier has just a few items you want to resell, then it could be worth the time and effort especially if it a product that will greatly enhance your product offerings.

Once you figure out how you get the data, then establish a process to check that product information at least once a day. Even if that simply means setting a calendar reminder or an alert to check for any updates and that everything is operating smoothly.

Second is the ordering process. How do you order? Some suppliers have an automated system, so they get notified when you get notified there is an order. Others you have to login and place the order and others you would email the order (or setup a rule that once you get a notification about the order, it auto notifies your supplier about that order too). Make sure that you and your supplier are on the same page about your ordering process. Even do a test order to make sure that everything is operating smoothly.

Third is the returns, exchanges and etc. Understand each of your suppliers policies about the products and each product page needs to have info about the returns or exchanges policy.

The Biggest Challenge with Multiple Dropshippers

The biggest hurdle that confuses most online retailers is shipping. How much do I charge for shipping?

You can do a whole bunch of calculations from various zip codes for each individual product dimensions, which is quite a daunting task! Or you can do something simple like.. a FLAT RATE of $9.95 shipping fee for anything and FREE SHIPPING for orders over $50.00. You will lose some money on some transactions due to shipping fees, and gain some money on others. So make sure to watch how it’s going and edit as you go.

So you may or may not lose money, but you definitely have a lot less headache and frustration trying to figure it out!

Make it Easy, Make it Easy… Don’t let…

Make it Easy, Make it Easy… Don’t let…
May 14th, 2021by

Tisha Hedges

Every time I say ‘Make it Easy’, I always sing it to the tune of “Take It Easy” by the Eagles. Never Fails! Did I now plant it in your head? Good, now I’m not the only one!

Make it Easy, don’t let your website get diluted.

You have got to make it easy in your customers. You have less than a minute to impress them to get them to want to stay on your site. The easier you make it on your customer, the better chance they are to order.

So how do you do it?

Just Give Me a Kiss!

Keep It Simple, Silly. (I changed the last word, I dislike the original word) If you fuss up your site too much with music and dancing bears, this will make your site slower to load and simply distract your visitor or annoy them which would be even worse.

Tell it like it is up front. What your site is about and what you have to offer and how you can be contacted.

Make shopping super easy. The entire ordering process needs to be very simple and uncomplicated with just a few steps and accept multiple payment options.

Your customer needs to feel safe. So you need to stress the security and integrity of the site or provide payment options that they feel safe about; like PayPal, Apple Pay, Amazon Pay and etc.

Just make it as easy and you would want it to be. No fuss. Make it safe. Keep it simple.
