Trade is one of the pillars of the economy and the most popular activities in private business.
Beginning businessmen often find it difficult to determine what to sell to get the maximum profit without risk.
There is a huge number of positions andDirections in which it is possible to develop a trading network. Some of them are attractive for large turnover, others - high percentage mark-up, others - one-time profit, the fourth - relative stability. Many sellers are led by the desire to get the maximum profit without taking into account other significant factors. Meanwhile, you need to take into account not only the figures of net profit from the sale, but also the requirements for the storage of goods, customer demand, seasonality. In addition, a lot depends on the starting capital, which you can spend on purchasing the first lots of goods.
Which store to open?
It is not always necessary to pursue the possibility of highExtra charges. For example, in retail chains selling food, retail margins rarely exceed 10%, but due to the fact that products are always well bought, even such margins are quite profitable. Naturally, when planning the sale of products, one should not forget that this is a perishable commodity that is demanding of storage conditions. Therefore, you must take care of the storage facilities and in time get rid of the surplus goods in the warehouse. To some extent, this applies to household chemicals, although the storage time is much longer.
Hygiene items and household chemicals also refer to goods that are always in demand, but competition in this area is very high.
Unlike food, clothing and footwearProvide the seller a high profit, thanks to the possibility of a significant (up to 200%) mark-up, relative to the purchase price. Here, too, should focus on the average buyer, because elite brands of clothing, although they provide a larger one-time income, but are sold much more difficult. In addition, the start-up capital necessary to purchase clothes of the middle price segment in the right assortment is much less than if you work with the premium segment. The undoubted advantage of trade in clothing is the absence of expiration dates, but for this you have to pay for seasonality. Particular attention should be paid to children's things: they are profitable to trade, and buyers will come again and again, as their children grow up.
As for low single-time profits, it is not worth itIts frightened if your product is popular enough to be bought in large quantities. For example, a package in a supermarket rarely costs more than one or two rubles, but given that its wholesale price does not exceed 20 kopecks, it turns out that the margin is up to thousands of percent. The main thing is to provide the necessary demand.
Please note that certain activities are subject to mandatory licensing. In addition, you may need certificates for this or that product.
Look for profitable options
Generally, if there is sufficient customerInterest can be found many "compromise" categories of goods, the cost of which is five to ten times lower than the selling price, and you do not need to sell several thousand units in order to provide an acceptable income. In this respect, ideal children are children. Even a small outlet near the circus or an amusement park can make a huge profit. You can sell cheap Chinese toys, cotton candy or popcorn. For example, the cost of an average glass of popcorn 4-5 rubles (of which 3 rubles is, in fact, a paper glass), and the sale price - about 50 rubles.
