What Makes a Good Product to Sell Online?

When considering a product to sell, ensure you calculate the total costs to you as a business and how much money you will make for every product you sell.

If you look at the most prolific sellers on platforms such as Ebay or Instagram, they tend to stick to the one range of products – and do that well rather than having a large range of products.

Costs you have to take into account include:

  • Actual cost of the product to purchase
  • Shipping costs to get it to you
  • Packaging Costs
  • Shipping costs to your customer (do you add shipping or include shipping)
  • Any insurances you might need
  • Marketing and Promotion Costs
  • Insurance Costs

Choose a Trending Product that is Selling Well

We have a list below of the trending products that are selling well right now. All you have to do is find a wholesale supplier (which we have a list of) – and do it better. Offer a better price, and better customer service and you have yourself the perfect online business!

How to Market a One-Product Business?

Set up a simple landing page website on something like Shopify (we highly recommend Shopify) which will cost you about $29/month – and then start promoting the product on social channels. If you can film some easy video content – brilliant!

If Shopify is out of your price point – there are other e-commerce platform alternatives – but the simplicity, scalability, flexibility, and add-ons for Shopify, by the time you add these up – they crap on free e-commerce platforms.
