If you want to start your own Business, Work from home, or just change direction, there are literally millions of things you can do. The first mistake we all make is losing confidence before we have even thought of starting your own business. There will be many providing or selling the same things as you and this mustn’t be a reason why you don’t take the plunge. The answer is to be better, more unique and have persistence because one thing all Entrepreneurs and people with their own businesses have in common is sheer determination.
Shopify and Etsy are shopping platforms you pay a small fee to advertise and sell your products on, alongside your own website and selling avenue’s, Shopify and Etsy are definitely worth considering because they expose your products and get them to the right people.
There are diverse ranges of items sold through these shopping platforms but there are items that are more favorable at one time or another and of course this changes week on week.
A lot of the items that sell well on Etsy are gift related items, it’s a great place to advertise unique items that people are looking for as gifts and how you present those makes all the difference to if they sell or not. Four of the best selling items on Etsy at the moment are listed as (Fitness bottle) this neat little fitness bottle has the caption I Can And I will printed on the bottle and is adaptable, users can fill the bottle with just water or ice and fruit. A (Dainty Rose necklace) comes high up in the best selling items and is a pretty delicate necklace ideal for a gift for any female members in the family. (Pink Cupcake Coasters) comes high up also for its cuteness, these pretty pink cup cake coasters are ideal for summer, when friends come around or to just enjoy for yourself. The (Mermaid towel blanket) is also a very popular item, it comes in different colors and adult and children’s sizes.
The one thing many of the items on Etsy and Shopify have in common is they can be personalized so they are an ideal gift which is what many of the customers have in mind when they search for items on Etsy.
It is important that as well as using these shopping platforms which there will be a fee for, you also have your own website, blog and social media outlets because exposing your products is the most important thing and don’t be afraid to use as many outlets as you can.
There is always the option to work from home full time, work from home part time whilst also being employed part time throughout the week. The choice is yours but don’t be put off because you think you will have too much competition. The key is to make your items more unique, expose them as much as you can and above all be persistent and never give up.
