MANUFACTURING VS

RESELLING

Thinking of creating a product and manufacturing it?

There are lots of pros and cons with manufacturing your own product versus reselling existing brands/products.  We have outlined the pros and cons below to help you decide which is the best option for you. If you’re new to eCommerce, we recommend you start with reselling and then when you’ve gained more experience and are making sales, you can scale your business with confidence and manufacture your own products.

MANUFACTURING

RESELLING

PROS

  • You are creative. If you obsess over perfecting the entire product experience and have the expertise to make the product from scratch, this is the model for you.
  • Complete control. Making the product yourself gives you complete control over the entire product experience. You can source materials of your choice, craft them into designs of your choice, and create unique packaging.
  • Unique product. If you come up with a unique product to sell this could be easier and cheaper to market if you have low competition.

PROS

  • Brands and products already have a market.  When you sell products and brands that people are already buying, you already know that there is a market for them.
  • Less risk. This option is much lower risk than manufacturing a product because there is a demand already for these products and brands that you are reselling.
  • Easy to get started. Buying from wholesalers allows you to stock products at your will.
  • Better flexibility. If you choose a fulfilment centre or drop ship model, you have the flexibility to manage your business from anywhere in the world.  You won’t be locked into certain brands or products either.  This business model makes it easier to pivot, which is essential for business longevity.

CONS

  • Very time-consuming.  From sourcing the raw materials to producing and packaging the finished goods, this method demands a lot of time investment. You’ll find that making the product yourself leaves you with little time and energy to handle other parts of your business, such as marketing, billing, inventory management, and so on.
  • Higher cost.  When manufacturing your own product you need to consider cost to manufacture, production costs, shipping costs, branding, fulfilment centre costs and much more.  There is a higher risk to that your product might not sell.

CONS

  • Competition. Since your brands and products are already on the market, you will have to compete with other online businesses to attract buyers and make them buy from you.
  • Brands’ rules about price control. Some brands have certain rules and regulations about the minimum price at which you can sell their products.

WILL YOU BE

The Next Success Story?

I’ve already made $1000 in sales without advertising.

At first I was abit skeptical but after purchasing the silver package, their training and programs are very easy to understand and there is continuous on going support if you get stuck on different parts or have any questions.

I have no Ecommerce experience and wanted to find another stream of income and click start digital is perfect for this. It has been about a month since I have joined with Click Start and I have not spent money on advertising yet, as I am still working on my store, but I’ve manage to obtain about $1,000 in sales. I can’t wait to see what happens when I start advertising.

For someone who has never been in this space I am very happy with the outcome.

I’ve completely replaced my salary.

After doing a lot of research I decided to bite the bullet and go with Click Start Digital to help me launch an online furniture store. I thought instead of worrying about all the things that might go wrong, I should really consider all the things that could, and have gone right, and I’m so glad I did. With all of the training Click Start provide I launched my new business a few weeks after purchase, and got my first sale in after 3 weeks of launching.

Month by month I watched my sales grow, and recently I had my first 5 figure month and so far the business has continued to do this. Currently we are pretty much making a sale everyday and growing at an incredible rate.

As much as I know I’ve put in some incredibly hard work into my store – I also know that all of this is possible because I had a great team and fantastic support from Click Start Digital.

It is important to keep up to date with what is happening in the ecommerce world and by having Click Start at my side I had access to up-to-date info on what is currently working and whats not working which has helped grow my business and makes me feel very excited and hopeful about the future.

Within 2 days of launching I made my first sale!

After reading many books, reviews and after years of procrastinating and over-analysing, I decided to pursue my life goals of starting and running a business that suited my lifestyle. Within two days of launching my business, it had its first sale.

It was so exciting I couldn’t believe it, and I’ve been making sales every week since launching. With Click Start Digital’s approach and explanations are easy to understand from the initial steps to starting your business, determine your business model, finding suppliers, and so on.

Not limited to, but including the Click Start Digital Training Hub, which is easy to use and understand and best of all you can go back and run through particular courses or modules if needed or use the training hub as a resource to find information related to your task at hand within your business.

I want to say a big thank you to Samantha and the rest of the team at Click Start Digital for assisting and guiding me into starting my business. I can’t wait to see what the next 12, 24, 36 months bring. Exciting times ahead.

My advice to anyone considering doing the same; jump in with both hands and go for it. Life is too short to over-analyse the what if’s.
