A Collection of Resources Related To Starting A Wig Business
In this post, you will find an abundance of resources that will give you a complete overview of what it takes to start wig business and will provide insights about what you can expect from getting into this type of business. Before you get to the resources, here are a few brief points to consider.
Whether people need a wig because they lost their hair or they want a different look that they can gain instantaneously, or want a change in color without dying their own hair then a wig is choice open to them.
This type of business has low competition and it’s one you may be able to operate part-time if you wish. If you plan to locate in a busy city then your chances of gaining more customers are increased.
If you are located in a rural area then you may not see a lot of customers. Although if you are passionate about wigs and you’re located in a rural area you could take your business online and ship wigs to customers rather than have a physical storefront.
With this type of business, you’ll need to carry a variety of sizes of colors.
Keep in mind there are a variety of materials such as synthetic hair as well as real hair from people and animals. The synthetic is cheaper than the real hair and would be easier to obtain.
You may be better off ordering your wigs as needed because if you consider one style in different sizes and different colors you could have 30 variations of that style. Multiply that by $173 you could be looking at over $5,000 to stock one wig style. Multiply that by 50 styles and you’re looking at over a quarter of a million dollars just for inventory.
You may also consider creating a blog all about wigs and join an affiliate program where you refer people to other sites that offer wigs for sale. Any sale made through your affiliate link will earn you a commission. This way you don’t worry about a storefront, inventory shipping, returns you just focus on creating web content and giving advice then sending people to the right sites for the right wig.
One important key to gaining any success in this type of business is to strongly focus on targeting the right people. Once you have your target customer you can focus on marketing your wigs to them. Once you understand your customer base you start to come up with creative ideas on how you can serve them better.
For example an idea off the top of my head, you may come up with a subscription-based model and create a look of the month club, where you rent out wigs for one month at a time. The wigs are washed and sanitized after they are returned. They could even have an inner liner that’s replaced after each rental.
Let’s have a look at some more considerations:
How Will You Run Your wig business?
1. You manage and run the business all on your own or hire employees for the jobs needed.
2. You hire a business manager and you deal with the products and services.
3. You hire a manager and employees to completely run the business while you overlook operations.
What options are you considering for this business?
Make Your Business Stand Out:
What can you do to make your wig business special? If you’re going to open a business that is just like any other, then why should people buy from you? What makes people want to do business with you? Consider this and maybe you can come up with an idea that offers value to your potential customers.
Is This What You Really Want?
It’s important that you get into a business you have an interest in. If you have no interest in wigs then you won’t give it your best effort and when a problem shows up, you’ll end up looking for ways to get out of the business instead of finding solutions.
The above considerations are important and part of deciding if you want to pursue starting your own wig business. In the resources to follow you’ll find more resources to consider such as how to finance your business, getting registered, getting the proper insurance, startup checklist and more.
