Hello friends. I’m happy to create this post mostly because it is a response to one of my Youtube viewer’s questions about “where to purchase wall vinyl supplies and what brand?”. So, I was happy to answer that question and more.
Although I do provide reference to the suppliers I purchase from, must say that this is only a reference and you could do this to compare it with your research on the buying of wall vinyl decal supplies for your business or potential business.
When I was in the research stage of deciding what market to pursue within the vinyl decal business and which consumer to cater to, I was also studying the sales and earnings of Etsy stores within the same markets. Now, one little hidden cost that you may not put into account is the cost of Etsy listings. If you are tracking a store’s sales history and trying to project the cost of vinyl and the potential earnings per sale, you must also track every time the store lists or re-lists an item. Of course, tracking a store’s history is easy on Etsy and I don’t know of any other online store venue that is easy to track.
Now, I don’t want to turn this article only about how to determine potential sales online without regard to the potential of selling direct face-to-face. The only reason I cannot go into depth about this topic is because I decided I only wanted to sell online only and deal with my business and my responsibilities to it during my own personal time. I could expand, but I don’t want to. I’m happy where it is right now because I like working on several projects at a time – This blog being one of them. But, the freedom that it gives me to earn a little extra cash on my very own time is awesome.
If I desperately needed the cash, I could find creative ways to sell to folks direct all around my area. In fact, I think if I sold direct to people then I would probably consider changing my niche in the vinyl decal business. I think there is a lot of potential to try different things out and seeing what works best.
In any case, watch this video. I think I provide pretty good advice. Enjoy!
