Now that you have made the decision to become a wholesale distributor you now have to decide exactly what products it is that you are going to offer. You have many choices ahead of you, almost to the point where it could become overwhelming.
The best way to start is to determine what target market appeals to you the most. For example, are you going to go after the teen age group or young adults, or are you more interested in going after products that would appeal to men such as automotive parts . Once you narrow down what appeals to you the most you have a starting point. A word of caution though, is to make sure that you pick a area of products that appeal to you as well, and that you have some knowledge of them so you are going to be able to put your best efforts into selling them.
There are many resources available to you to start building your supply of products. Of course you have the online offerings but there are off line resources available as well. You want to make sure that you utilize both of these. When it comes to resources you can take a look at trade shows and trade magazines. This will give you a starting point and you are really going to want to do some comparison shopping when it comes to picking your wholesale products.
You will find that even though these are wholesale products that they will vary in price. Another issue that will come up is the quantity that you may have to purchase. When first starting out you may not want to buy large quantities of any one item if you are not sure if this is going to be a good seller for you. However, if you are not buying the large quantities then often the price is much higher for you.
