Reselling is a booming business that has seen a large amount of success in recent years, and we are here to tell you just how easy it is to get started! Going into your local stores is an easy first step, simply walk through the aisles and notice what’s selling and what isn’t. The best part is, you’re not limited to just one brand of goods or just one specific good. Think of essential items that people need to buy on a consistent basis and go from there. Pick and choose the items that are going to be easy to sell and don’t require a large amount of marketing to bring in the customers, but remember there are things to include to reassure that the customer is buying an authentic product. Quality pictures and communication with potential buyers are extremely essential in making your internet selling presence a success.
Finding products doesn’t just stop there either, reselling groups like West Coast Dealz do a lot of the heavy lifting for you. You’re given a community of other resellers to communicate and strategize your next purchases with. On top of that, West Coast Dealz gives out free leads at no additional costs which puts you ahead of the curve and closer to raking in that cash!
The next part is getting set up on digital marketplaces. In this day and age, there are numerous platforms to use to get your products out there. Amazon, eBay, Facebook, the list goes on, and signing up for these platforms is a cinch! These marketplaces offer free accounts and some even offer more benefits if you create a paid account. For example, Amazon offers a professional seller account that gives you leeway navigating their comprehensive platform. From my experience is working with sellers on Amazon, requests and storage space at their fulfillment centers are given priority to professional sellers. One of the most difficult experiences in selling through Amazon is having to deal with Amazon Seller Support, where you’ll find yourself making multiple phone calls a day just to get your product the green light and ready to go. Obviously, these paid accounts are not a requirement for getting started on this new side hustle but maybe once you grow it into a profitable side business, you may want to consider these options.
When that’s all said and done, you’re ready to get your reselling going! The best part of this side hustle is that it is entirely on your own time and at your own convenience. You can take breaks or grind it out, the choice is yours to make, and the profit is all yours. With COVID coming and going, it won’t hurt to make a little extra cash and give yourself that extra security!
