This article will give a step by step guide to on how to develop your own product.
Step 1 – Generate and Develop the Idea
The idea needs to be something you truly believe in and something which is unique to other products of similar function. Once the idea is generated, the primary development of the product should be carried out.
Step 2 – Understand the Market
The product will likely be for a set market, it is vital to understand what this market is, how it is usually operated, who the competition will be and who will be the likely buyers of this product.
Step 3 – Will People Buy the Product
Now it is time to analyze from a business point of view if the product is going to actually bring profit in. It is a good time to decide whether to take it further or not before anything is manufactured.
Step 4 – Manufacturing the Product
Finding a manufacturer can be a hard task depending on what the product is. Often due to cost, it will benefit greatly to manufacture the product overseas. Usually, this is fine, as manufacturers want you to continue using their services so they will try to make the product as close to the specifications as possible.
Step 5 – Transporting the Product
If the product is manufactured overseas, it will need to be transported over to your place of sales. Coming from countries far away from the only really suitable and cost-effective option is to transport the goods via storage containers. This is a good option as they are large containers and your product will be safe. Once at the port, depending on the quantity and size of the product, the best option will be to transfer the product inland by portable storage containers.
Step 6 – Distribution
The next step is to sell the product. There are a few ways to do this, such as selling locally, selling online or selling to larger corporations. There are pros and cons to each one, by selling locally you avoid any further distribution problems but you do have a limited market. By selling online, you have a larger audience to sell to, but it can be hard to get noticed. Selling to a corporation will be the best way to consistently make a profit, but it will be very difficult to be recognized by a corporation without much experience and no proof the product can sell effectively.
