  • Determine exactly what it is you want to sell in the first place. If you have a product, then you may already be visualizing the diversification that you can do at a later date. For example, if you are selling stickers, you may decide to branch out into business cards. It’s the natural order of things in business, because you want things to be a complete success. Diversifying one day can help you to do that, but before you can diversify you have to determine what you’re going to sell at all. You need to look at your costs, and your talents to determine what it is that you can and cannot cell. Some people like to make handmade cards, but if you’re not particularly crafty it may not be the best option for you. Once you have determined what you can sell, you can make a list of the materials that you need to create the products and then start working on a budgeting system to figure out what you can charge other people for them. This is super important if you want your budget to be a positive one.
  • Make sure you are providing excellence. Regardless of the product or service that you do provide your customers, you have to ensure that it is excellent. This will keep them coming back for more and they will tell their friends and their family all about you. You can make it easy for customers to contact you and give you feedback on the products that you are providing when you have focus groups and you hold marketing conferences. Opinions do matter, and understanding exactly which opinions count is important for your business to thrive. Remember, the customer is the one you are trying to impress, so if they give you feedback that you choose to ignore, don’t be shocked if you are not actually impressing them anymore.
  • Be communicated and contactable. It’s not easy to buy from a company only to find out that they don’t even have a phone number for you to contact when they need help. If you are uncommunicative with your clients, they are not going to be very forthcoming in buying from you over and over again. Instead, make your business available by offering an amazing life chat service on your website. Oh yes, you need to have a website!
  • Get on the digital marketing train. As you are selling your products online you need to be able to advertise them online, to. This will mean ensuring that you are available and that means having your digital marketing strategy firmly in place before you get started. You have to let people know that you have a product for sale in the first place. Marketing is vital for business success because it’s not enough just to rent a booth at farmers market to sell what you have to sell. You have to be able to tell people about it and rave about it and you have to give them a platform to give you feedback about your products, to. Doing all of this can help you to craft the best possible marketing strategy for your company, and it’s going to help to get your business name out there which is what will generate good feedback and word of mouth.

  • Give out some freebies. Products, but tasters of what’s to come. By offering freebies, you are showing people that you care about their opinions and the company in general. Freebies help to generate reviews, and if you give out freebies you will be able to get reviews from your customers who will then post on your website to tell everybody else using the products that you have to offer. This is a great way to generate conversation surrounding your products, and if you do this you will be able to see just how much your business can thrive.
  • Always go the extra mile. Sometimes, chucking in a freebie or two or a discount code in turn order that has been completed is one of the best things that you can do. If somebody has purchased something from your business Ann you include a free box of chocolates, you will always be remembered as the business that serves up free things. This is actually a good thing; it’s an excellent marketing ploy. Not only will you then be able to ensure that your customers are happy, you’ll be able to show them that your business is able to offer more than most. It’s a good way to bring your customers in and it’s a nice way to get a good online review.
  • Accommodate wishes where you can. You can’t always adhere to every change that your customers ask for if you are personalizing products, but go the extra mile here if you are able to. It’s important that your customers feel heard and it’s important that you offer them exactly what it is that they want so that they will keep coming back for more.

What do you like to sell from home the most? I really think that some customised clothes like t-shirts are the best for this purpose. Maybe you will like the service from GotApparel.com for this purpose which I think is very cool. Have a look there and let me know if you think it’s helpful to you too, good luck 🙂

Thanks for these ideas. Running a business from home is now easier than ever. I just found printing services for clothing & apparel for my new clothing merch and am making deliveries. I also use the garage as a temporary storage and packaging workshop.
