Try these simple yet effective methods to test your product(s) to see if you can generate sales before you start buying tons of stock, booking warehouse space, building e-commerce websites and pumping in hefty marketing dollars.

Apply to list a selection of products on marketplace websites such as Amazon, eBay, Etsy, Not On The High Street and Groupon.

  • Include professional product shots
  • Create effective titles

  • Add in extra details such as colour, size, weight and origin
  • Include product(s) unique selling points

4. Advertise

For the likes of Amazon and eBay utilise Sponsored Advertising to get your products in front of the right people

5. Analyse Results

After a 3-6 month period analyse results to identify bestsellers, repeat purchaser opportunities, customer feedback, logistics, processes and costs.

6. To Invest or Not Invest?

Now you’ve got some data in, make a decision to invest into your very own e-commerce facilities, tweak the proposition further and test again or choose a different product or niche.
