Sure – there are some products out there that are self explanatory, but you have to think long term. If a customer asks a question – would you be able to answer it?

I thought about selling hair care products because I had an ‘in’, but I’m lucky to wash my hair once a week. The products just wouldn’t have been a great fit for me – I wouldn’t have known what to do with half the products and so supporting my customers would have been extremely difficult.

Also – running/starting your own business will likely be 100 times more work than you think it will be. Money is a powerful motivator to some, but loving your product, knowing your product, being driven BY the product you sell is very important (to me anyway). When you’re working to 1am AGAIN it helps to like what your doing.

Look to your existing interests. Love making gluten free brownies? Bingo – you could make them to sell – develop a mix for sale online or in shops.

Frustrated at the cost of buying prepackaged school snacks at the supermarket? Start a website that sells snacks in bulk to reduce costs for mum’s (let me know when it’s up – I’ll place an order). Chances are if you’re frustrated by it – someone else out there will be too (as shown with the mason jar lids).

The only thing I would say about research is that whilst it’s good to do – it can also be intimidating and hold you back. Before I started my first store I was told I would never make a $1. I started an online baby business – it’s a totally saturated market. There are huge players and hundreds of smaller ones. If I’d based my decision on ‘research’ then I never would have started. Within 12 months I sold more baby sleeping bags and swaddles than any other online retailer in Australia (based on suppliers sales).

Research is interesting, but don’t let it cripple you. Who cares if there is someone out there that ‘owns’ the market. It’s a big world – plenty of room for everyone.

Great article by the way. I will be a great resource for those looking to sell online but not knowing where to start.
