Start with the Online Shop for Cell Phone Accessories
Currently, one of the sectors with the most growth and movement is the technology sector and therefore, all products such as complements, parts and accessories are also one of the most profitable fields in the market.
While we all like to put covers on our cell phones, tablets, netbooks, computers, etc, we would be much more attracted to the idea of being able to customize these items as we would like them to be in our favorite colors, design and even put our name on them.
Are you interested? Let’s see how to set up this type of business:
What is this online business?
With the creation of an online store, we will build a site where customers and interested parties can enter and where they can see, from a series of colored covers with different designs and formats, options to customize them, add text and place the order directly to wait for your accessory at the door of your house.
Let’s get started:
Find your supplier
You will need a cover supplier who can supply these items in bulk, so that you have basic, neutral, undecorated covers (preferably of different colors and shapes) so that they can carry the decorations that your customers will choose on the page.
Identify your audience
Usually young people are most attracted to this type of business with customizations, however, you can also offer to place decorations and text as a gift for someone with very nice and creative packaging.
Build the website
If you have knowledge in programming and web development you can create the site yourself, if not, you will have to hire a programmer to take care of it. In the page we must make available to the client a series of simple options to which he can access so that he himself creates the sleeve he wants from the choice of the type of sleeve to the text or image he wants to go in it. Once this is done, the client can then make the payment through the payment system of the page and wait for the cover to arrive at his home.
Content: For the creation process it is necessary that the client can see how the cover of his device looks like, so you must add the images of the basic covers that will be on which will go the design they choose. You can also add finished, original and exclusive designs from your supplier in case they do not want to customize it but simply buy it.
Equip and find the necessary material
In addition to the sleeves and website, it will be necessary to have a number of other tools and elements to create the customizations that customers want in their sleeves, such as: colored paper, printing supplies, inks, writing materials, among other stationery.
Launch your business
Once that is achieved, it is time for the website to get going. Promote your business especially through social networks with more users, such as Facebook, Instagram and Twitter, because if your potential customers are seeing your networks through these devices, they will be more likely to be interested in purchasing the product you offer.
Problems that may arise: The more tedious the creation process, the more likely it is that the customer will abandon the purchase and buy the product. Many item customization sites do not pay attention to the system they present to their customers. It is key to place as few steps as possible and that this does not affect the decoration options.
Final recommendation: Given that this type of business is the one that can reach and extend its audience the most, it is extremely necessary that you work on the promotion of this one using the different mechanisms that digital tools offer, such as collective advertising with similar businesses, creation of blogs with SEO, pages in social networks, etc.
