You Fill a Need for Others
We here at Home Business Digital work hard to provide you with useful insights and resources. For example, in a recent blog article posted on January 12, 2021, there was an article featured that looked at a strategy to finding out ideas for creating products that fill a need of your audience:
Realize Your Dreams
“It is always about going back to the core idea of your business which is to solve a problem that your audience has. One of the easiest ways to achieve this is by thinking about your own business challenges and get crystal clear on what your obstacles are. Next you come up with an innovative idea to move the challenges aside and let you begin to realize your dream.”
Your Ecommerce Activity
We get asked sometimes what is the best home business to start? The answer to this of course is the recommendation that it be in an industry for which you already have knowledge or the passion for and therefore the motivation to learn. But these days that is just the beginning. Sure, if you already have a storefront and are a mom-and-pop business, you can just sell your items online.
But, for some home businesses this is not easy to do, especially if you provide a service that must be done in-person with the customer or client. You might consider selling a variation drawn from your own industry that can be ordered online and then sent to the buyer.
Getting Help from a Fulfillment Company
But wonder if you do not want to have to deal with the hassle of taking orders and then packing and sending items? An alternative would be to find a business that will do the fulfillment for you. This means they will ship your items to your customers. In some cases, you will supply the fulfillment company with an inventory of your products and then as orders come in, you notify them, and they will send them out for you.
Print on Demand
There is yet another way you can work with a fulfillment business. If you sell things like t-shirts or hard copy books that you wrote, there are businesses that will not only send out your orders for you, but will custom create the items for you. In other words, they will do the printing on demand of your books, or t-shirts etc.
But probably one of the easiest businesses to run online (once set up) is one that specializes in digital goods. Digital goods include things like eBooks, software, and videos. All these things just need to be made as digital files first. Then when your customer puts in an order on your website, they are instantly and automatically taken to an area where they can then download your digital product.
Benefits of Digital
The exciting thing about this is that once you have created your digital product as a file, it can be downloaded as many times as you want. This does away with the challenges required for sending out physical goods inventory. The digital goods strategy works best with “How To” nonfiction topics that have information regarding solutions to problems that your customers really need right away.
Freelancer Digital Fulfillment Team
You can also sell digital services online that when the orders come in you can then delegate the actual work to freelance online workers. This works for things like customized app creation and websites etc. You do a little interaction with the customer via email or video chat. If needed they can email or send your things like images and logos, that you then present to your freelancer digital fulfillment team worked with remotely.
