How To Choose a Product To Sell Online

BoxesStill stuck on choosing something to sell on the internet? I agree, it’s not as easy as it should be.

It certainly isn’t as easy as finding out the top 10 hottest items on eBay and going for one of them. If you’re just starting out then you’re going to be faced with a lot of competition and these aren’t even the most profitable items you can start selling.

So how do you choose a product to sell on the internet?

Once again, Alice from Salehoo, who is conducting the free Online Selling Tactics training, has some answers:

It’s  important to note that the sellers that do best from a hot product are often making the bulk of their profit on the accessories, rather than the product itself. For example, the million and one iPod covers, holders, skins, and so on.

Keep that in mind next time you see a hot trend developing.

Before I get into where to look for ideas you need to know the answer to one question…

Are your ideas any good?

Before you jump in head first with your product idea,  run it through a few filters first to make sure the market is worth your time and your effort.

I cannot put the full email here but Alice also gives 5 places to look for product ideas and when you use these ideas you can find at least 64 product ideas (minimum).

Top sellers are always on the lookout for more product ideas. It is never a good idea to rest on just one. Otherwise you’ll be left high and dry if sales suddenly drop.

OK, now that you’ve got an idea of how to test a product, here’s five places to look for product ideas:
