Making Money With Wholesale Goods

Wholesale goods play an important economic role in fuelling the retail industry, and allowing the circulation of wealth to fully take its toll. As we personally increase our wealth, our incomes rise above our direct needs, allowing a disposable income which we can divert as we choose. That’s where the wholesale industry comes in – by supplying products to the retailers, the wholesale industry feeds a natural urge for materialistic gains, and leisure consumerism. As a budding entrepreneur, it is possible to make money with wholesale goods, especially given the pre-eminence of the Internet in the modern business arena. In this article, we will look at how you can try to make money from wholesale goods.

Making money from wholesale goods starts with having money in place. Wholesale trading is a lot like investing in commodity markets. Whether it’s oil, currency, toilet rolls, laptops – it doesn’t really matter at the core of the business model. The model is buying in extreme bulk, splitting into smaller lots and reselling at a value-added price. If you’re looking to get into the wholesale market, it is important that you firstly have the funds available to make the investment. The wholesale market doesn’t function at a profit unless you have money to finance the initial purchase. Chances are you won’t find credit terms straight off, so make sure you have financing in place in order to secure your investment.

The next thing to consider when trying to make money from wholesale products is the exact product you intend to sell. Of course, in essence it is irrelevant what you are selling because the selling process remains the same. It is however important for strategic reasons to work out exactly what you are going to sell, in order to work out your marketing strategy, and storage requirements. Initially, the first investment may be best placed in physically small products, for the sole purpose on saving on storage costs. Wholesaling cars has a significant space burden, and you’d probably need a warehouse to consider starting in this line of business. However, wholesaling pencils wouldn’t have such a requirement, and in fact it would be perfectly possible to start up from your own home.

Finally you need to think about your marketing strategy. Buying wholesale goods is a risky business with a steep cash outlay, therefore it is important to make sure you can find the customers when it really matters. Obviously, as a wholesaler your customers are going to be retail outlets. Go for small independents to start with, as large chains can often be difficult to infiltrate as a wholesaler. Provided you can offer the right quantity at the right price, cold calling selected retailers might be a good way to drum up business initially.

Making money from wholesale isn’t easy, and anyone that tells you it is really hasn’t experienced the pitfalls. However, by carefully planning your business model and understanding the method, it is possible to make money from wholesaling goods as a business.
