A Collection of Resources Related To Starting A Phone Case Business
How To Start A Phone Case Business
If you’re thinking about starting your own cell phone case business then have a look at the resources I have put together to give you an overview of what to expect from this type of business, but first a few brief points.
Cases are very popular for cell phones. If you consider the number of cell phones sold and the number of people that have cell phone cases you can see the possibilities.
Who Will Buy A Case?
You do have to consider how many people already have a case for their phone. I would say quite a few. I know that I have purchased my case when I purchased the phone. Have I ever replaced it? No, I haven’t so I wouldn’t be a good customer for someone selling cell phone cases.
In order to make an impact, you need to market your cell phone cases, you need to focus on making your cell phone cases desirable. People may not need a new case, but if they find a case that appeals to them more than the one they have then they may purchase based on desire and not need.
How do you make cell phone cases desirable?
You need to have had a wide variety, including name brands, and desirable functions, for example, a case that protects your phone and holds credit cards or cash.
Style is an aspect that will make you cases more desirable, especially for those interested in fashion, fashionable name-brand cases will appeal to them. Another aspect is the graphic on the case. E.g SIFI fans may find graphics on the case related to the latest movie desirable.
You’ll need to locate in a busy area where there is a lot of people, for example, a kiosk in a popular mall, where thousands and thousands of people walk by every hour. You need to make your display attractive and you need to have a wide selection of desirable cases.
You may add additional products and service that go with cell phone cases. E,g accessories such as chargers, cables, screen protectors, cell phone repair ( which you can subcontract), etc.
You’ll want to check for competitors. If there is no competition could there be a reason for that? Maybe there is no demand for cell phone cases in that area? If there is a lot of competition then how will you compete?
Why this Business?
One of the keys to opening any business is that you have to open it for the right reasons. Don’t just do it for the money, do it because you have an interest in the product or service you’re offering. When you enjoy your business you’ll look for ways to succeed and improve rather than a way out when problems occur.
Insights to the above and more can be found in the resources to follow.
