💡How to find a good product to sell?

💡How to find a good product to sell?

Step 1: What is a good product?

Whether you are an expert in a particular niche or not. The first thing to start thinking about is a product, not a set of products. You shouldn't be thinking about the niche itself, you should be looking for a profitable product directly.

If what interests you is to make a quick profit and test the market. You don't have to worry about your brand, your logos or anything like that. What we want to check is that this product is sold and that we are making (at least) small profits. If we manage to make profits on a small scale, imagine what we can achieve by selling on a large scale.

We are not saying that creating your own brand is not the right thing to do. Not at all, in fact, we always recommend creating your own brand to import products from Asia, but at this stage of your activity, product customization would be too much beyond your means in terms of time/costs.

After clarifying this point, let's see what we think is a good product to start a business quickly and give us short-term profits:

profitable product to sell

Step 2: How to find the right products?

We are perhaps at the most important stage. Because this is when we have to spend many hours in front of our computer researching products and analyzing data from different websites.

We assume that you did not expect us to tell you in this post something like: - You have to import "wallets" or "backpacks" -. No, it doesn't work like that. If you are looking for "wallets" or "backpacks", you will go crazy and stop at the first restrictions. You should search for a unique product from a specific niche. In fact, if you found the perfect product, it should be something like this: "running backpack with insulated compartments of water repellent Goretex fabric with insulating zippers and pastel colors" Why? Because potential customers are looking for a unique product, which will allow them to differentiate themselves from what they may have had in the past. Failing to be competitive in price (this is reserved for sellers with large purchasing capacity) Seek innovation! If you are not too "out of the ordinary product", you can take inspiration from brands, trendy products and try to fit into a niche in which you can be competitive (especially with products with the same function than a big brand, but "made in Asia" ...).

Places where you can start looking:

On Google trends, we can notice 3 types of interesting products:

Ephemeral products - The BUZZ

Timeless products

DocShipper Tip: Don't keep a single product in mind. You have to be attentive to all the details. Once you've found a product that works, stay in your swing, and try to sell complementary products. These products will be directly linked to the product you are selling, so you will try to sell several products per order, a way of optimizing profits.

Step 3: Locate your product in Asia

It was difficult, we know. But in the end, you have managed to have a list of 5 or 10 products that you consider to be trendy at the moment and you will benefit from the work that others have done for you.

The next thing to do is to look for this product on websites like Alibaba (to name a few). You will be able to find the products (often range elsewhere) that you want to sell.

It will not be easy to find the same or very similar product if we are talking about a new trend, so we have to do a general search with the features we want and get in touch with suppliers who have the most similar models. And this is where the serious things start ...

Note DocShipper: Attention! We are not really talking about copying. This is to imitate or copy the trend. Never use the same product with the same brand. As you can imagine, it is not legal. However, copying a trend is completely legal. Inditex does this every day.

Use the filters that appear in Alibaba to remove all the unwanted products that you will find while doing your research. And above all, focus. Don't get distracted by a product that has nothing to do with what you're looking for. Your goal now is to locate this product and get the price per unit.

If they have to do it in principle, we are not interested. We have to find something that matches what we are looking for. Remember, we just want to do a small-scale test. If we have to make a custom sample, the costs will skyrocket. We do not recommend it.

After a few days of consultation with suppliers, you will have a list of 5 or 10 suppliers that may be of interest. For the moment, you are putting them all on "pending" because you must first go to step 4 to find out if the product you want to import will meet the sales requirements with a margin greater than 50%.

Step 4: Sale & Competitive Price Analysis

We can call this step the first step towards business. If you already know your purchase price and when it comes to finding products similar to yours, you only find branded products at exorbitant prices, you are going to have a moment of euphoria that you must control and analyze properly.

If a big smile appears on your face during your research, it is very likely that you have found the perfect product.

Where should you check prices to find out if you have a good buy/sell price?

  • Amazon: Without a doubt, where you will look first, it will be on Amazon. If you find absolutely nothing on your product, this can be a warning signal. Maybe nobody sells it because there is really no demand (it is usually normal) or maybe nobody sells it because it is so new that you will be the first to sell it sell (this usually doesn't happen). In any case, worry if what you are trying to sell does not appear in amazon. The normal thing is that there are already suppliers who sell a product similar to yours. Note the lowest selling price of all the suppliers that appear for the product that most closely resembles yours.
  • eBay: Do the same steps you did on Amazon and note the lowest price.

DocShipper Tip: Steps 3 and 4 can be performed in reverse order. It wouldn't change anything. After all, what we want to get is the profit margin we will have if we choose one or the other product.

Step 5: Analyze the data

In the last step, you only need to analyze the data you have obtained and see if it meets the requirements that you defined as a good product in step 1.

We usually recommend using an Excel sheet where you will put the purchase and sale price columns and you will automatically calculate the margin in the next column. The last column is where you write the pros and cons of each product. Thus, once the research is complete, you will have a clear vision of the products that you should throw directly into the trash (usually the majority) and of the finalists.

If at the end you left 2 articles as finalists you can choose the one that leaves you the most profit margin or the one in which you believe the most.

Good luck in your search!

BUY VIRTUAL REALITY HEADSET IN CHINA

🕶️ BUY VIRTUAL REALITY HEADSET IN CHINA

Low-end virtual reality headset

The Chinese Google Cardboard

The Google Cardboard can be purchased on your website or through Amazon for 7.99 USD, shipping included if you are Amazon Premium.

The same Google box can be found on AliExpress for only 1.49 USD / unit, shipping costs also included.

It is the cheapest and most perfect option to experience what virtual reality is without having to spend a lot of money. But there is no doubt that the experience is not the same as if you were wearing glasses with a design perfectly suited to your face. To get a slightly better experience, we need to invest a few more dollars and make the jump to mid-range products ...

Source DocShipper: Here is the link to the comparison between what we can find on the 2 e-commerce reference: Amazon and Aliexpress.

Mid-range virtual reality headset

China virtual reality headset for mobile

 

Here we are already entering a field where more variety exists. We continue with the range of products that use the mobile screen for virtual reality. And we operate in a range of 15 to 50 USD. Depending on the quality of the materials and extras included in the product (remote control, headphones, etc.). We must be very careful and check carefully whether the product includes a remote control or does not include it. In many cases, we will see the remote control on the product photo, but it does not appear anywhere in the description. Check carefully because the price difference is usually around $ 5.

 

BOBO VR (with Bluetooth remote control)

It is undoubtedly the number one sales in the range of virtual reality headset where you have to use your own mobile. It uses polarized lenses and includes a Bluetooth remote control so you can control the cell phone without having to get rid of it. The seller is completely reliable because more than 4,000 units have been sold to date and he obtained a score of 4.8 out of 5 on more than 1400 votes.

Remember that the order will take between 20 and 30 days if you live in Europe and between 35 and 40 days if you live in North America.

You should not have any customs problems because the product is less than 150 USD and you will therefore not pay any tariff or VAT. Although, as we have already mentioned in this blog, customs apply random checks and it is possible that, for the same article, one package is stopped and another identical one is not.

If you want the version without remote control, you can buy it on this link. Honestly, for a small price difference, the most practical is to use the remote control without removing your glasses. I recommend the version with remote control.

You can find the product on the following link: BOBO VR virtual reality headset (Aliexpress)

VR SHINECON (with Bluetooth remote control)

In the same price range, we find these virtual reality headsets with a black design. The VR Shinecon model is valid for mobiles with screens from 3.5 to 6 inches and, as for BOBO VR, we must insert our mobile to enjoy virtual reality.

To use this type of headset, you must download from the app store if you are using an iPhone or from the Google Play Store if you are using an Android device, the application that will transform videos and images optimized for the virtual reality headset.

These products work like permanent binoculars, in which you can adjust the distance of the lens to improve vision or the distance between the eyes. It also has rubber bands where we can perfectly adjust the glasses to the contour of our face.

The vast majority of mid-range glasses have a magnetic button, which is a simple magnet that is detected by most smartphones and makes it easier for you to interact with the viewfinder. Almost all virtual reality applications support this button.

We must keep in mind that the delivery time of these virtual reality headsets from China is between 20 and 40 days. This model is in the price limit so that the customs can stop it and you have to pay the corresponding VAT, but you will not have to pay any customs fees the price must be higher than 150 USD.

Note DocShipper: If your idea is to market the glasses in your country, you must no doubt go through the Alibaba website and type "VR Glasses" in the Alibaba search engine. A large number of suppliers appear, so you can find much more attractive prices. You just need to locate the best supplier and click on the "Contact supplier" button to offer you the best wholesale prices.

Still can't find the right supplier or aren't you sure? Call on our sourcing services: we find suppliers, control production, bring products up to standard ... We assist you with all of the sourcing procedures in Asia!

Note DocShipper: Two fundamental aspects of this type of mid-range product that will make your virtual reality experience even more rewarding:

  • For a real experience, your cell phone must have a gyroscope. In other words, it should detect the movement of your head. With the Antutu app, we can check if our mobile phone is equipped with a gyroscope.
  • The screen resolution. Medium / low range mobile phones have a fairly limited screen resolution, so don't expect the same experience if you have a $ 20 laptop as if you have an iPhone or Samsung.

High-end virtual reality headset

 

It is the product category that has the most potential. These are the virtual reality headsets with an integrated screen and connected to your PC.

To meet these requirements, high-end virtual reality headsets must have a Windows personal computer and at least one NVIDIA GTX 970 or AMD 290 card, which can generate the necessary 400 million pixels per second. A traditional game at 1080p and 60Hz uses 124 million pixels per second, while virtual reality headsets operate at resolutions of 2160 × 1200 at 90Hz, in addition to the coordination of two screens (one for each eye). Let's see what the options are right now.

 

Deepoon E3

The DËEPOON brand aims to position itself on the high-end virtual reality market in China. There are 3 models on the market, the 3rd (the E3) being released recently. But let's focus on the model that differentiates them from the rest of virtual reality headsets. It is the only manufacturer in China that currently offers immersive virtual reality headsets similar to those of the Oculus. As we see on the Aliexpress site, sales are currently very low and the number of comments is insufficient to get a good idea of the quality of the glasses.

We must be aware of the developments in this company as they can set the trend in this area.

ANTVR

In December 2014, this company ran a campaign on Kickstarter and managed to raise more than 260,000 USD thanks to its Antvr kit. The company has its own virtual reality headset, but the best part is that it stands out from the rest and relies on other tools that complement VR, such as joysticks and weapons for video games. This is undoubtedly one of the companies to follow because the style of the products is very well worked.
