As a follow up to my posts on wholesale products. There is a little known route that can be taken, used by the most savvy traders on eBay. This route allows you to obtain products for sale cheaply, they are completely unique to yourself and no one else will be selling exactly the same product(s).
It is called private label products and this is how it works; how often have you seen a supermarket own label product that is virtually identical to a brand label? All the time. Food producers often produce a generic product that can be rebranded using a supermarkets own name. Or if minor changes are required for a new recipe or to make the product cheaper as in “value products” or “smart price” then a minimum batch order is required to make the product viable to resell.
There are wealth of suppliers/manufactures that will allow you to rebrand their own generic products using your own name and labelling. This makes the product unique to you. This is particularly so in the health and beauty markets. Your product is uniquely yours you have no direct competition as such as no one is selling exactly the same product as you. You can compete with the big sellers selling branded products.
Here’s how to do it. Use Google or similar search engine to look for private label manufacturers. Often for a small fee they will rebrand there standard labelling to produce your own unique brand. One of the companies I know charges a flat fee of just £20 to do this per product. You simply state “own labels” when re-ordering the product. Photograph the product, write a good description and this product is yours.
Before the £-$ exchange rate took a crash, I bought in non labelled products from the US and simply added my own labels to the product. I had these labels printed at my local printer very cheaply. The product is uniquely mine and exactly the same as every other seller using the same manufacturer. I have also managed to source similar product in the UK to those I was importing just a few months ago. Why not try the search yourself? You may be surprised at what you turn up.
See you soon
