I’ve been in the wholesale business for more years than I care toremember. I’ve seen a lot of interesting trends and tools come and go inthe wholesale industry. However, one of my favorite resources thatstayed with me is this helpful and reliable directory service - esources.This is one site, that didn’t just help me get in touch with verifiedsuppliers, it also taught me a thing or two about online retail!A New WorldI have considerable experience of selling handmade toys and wooden giftaccessories in the real world. My grandson knows a thing or two aboutcomputers and he told me I should also start selling on the internet. Hesaid there was a larger market out there and I just needed to set up asite and start selling! This sounded like a great idea but it seemed a bittoo easy. So I asked a couple of friends about selling online.
They told me that it was hard work, just like anything else. However, if Iheaded over to the site called esources.co.uk, I would find a great place tostart learning about the business and I would be able to connect with theright people. They also warned me that selling online was very different fromselling in the real world. I would need to know the basics of online retail tomake my business successful.I wasn’t sure if this was something I wanted to do at my age; it can be hardto teach an old dog new tricks! However, they took whatever doubt ormisgivings I had, right out of my mind. First, I found a large number ofsuppliers that weren’t just dealing in my products, but also in a bunch of newones that I’ve always wanted to add to my store. I was able to get in touchwith a supplier who made wooden jigsaw puzzles and even one who madewooden yo-yos!Becoming a WizardI soon realized that finding wooden yo-yos was one thing but I was alsogoing to have to figure out how to sell them online. I didn’t have to go veryfar - the friendly resource suggested by my friends, has a very handy MarketResearch Wizard tool that taught me pretty much everything I needed toknow. I learned about keywords and how the misspellings of words areimportant in driving traffic. I learned about product demand online and evenabout seasonal demand trends.
The Market Research Wizard also taught me all about how to keep tabs onthe competition. Most important of all, it told me what the selling potential ofmy products would be.
