If you run a shop, be it a brick and mortar or online store, what made you decide to start your business and chose the particular products you provide for your customers and are there certain products that sell really well and if so, do you concentrate on promoting these products more than others?
When starting a new business selling products, I know it can a bit of gamble when making decisions on what products you may chose to sell and due to vast array of products I have to chose from, I know that some sell better than others.
As an example, I provide many products related to some of the biggest blockbuster movies like the Aliens, Predator, Terminator and Superhero movies and then I get questions from customers asking if I can get certain products which I enjoy providing and this means I won't always make the decisions on what to sell, I let customers the chose.
One of the latest products I listed comes from a company called Mezco Toyz who manufacture many brands including one of their top sellers, the Living Dead Dolls and with so many varieties and many collectors out there, just after listing this new Living Dead Doll known as Jack O Lantern, pictured below, customers started to pre-order this and then all of sudden I get a ton of messages from customers!
I set the business up and was going to be UK based only but then added shipping to most EU countries but with this one product, I've had so many messages from new customers wanting this product and that's not just from the UK and Europe but from USA, Canada, Australia and New Zealand so it amazes me how fast word gets out!
Now I know customers want this product so badly, I will start increasing the Living Dead Dolls range and provide many more but will also be expanding to more countires just because of this one item!
Have you had something similar happen because of one or more particular products?
This is good for business but also means I have to set up a whole new shipping service to more countries which is quite exciting and hopefully a great way to start growing even more!
Shown below is the Jack O Lantern Living Dead Doll which is a very exclusive and limited edition doll with only 3 different coloured variants being made, one for USA, one for Australia and the one I am providing which I think may be a UK exclusive so i'm proud to provide this unique product as there'sonly 666 being made and it's a Halloween special due for release at the end of October.
Thanks for reading.
