How to Buy Wholesale Store Fixtures for Your Business

How to Buy Wholesale Store Fixtures for Your Business
by: Jimmy Sturo

It may sound funny, but honestly, if you’re opening up your own retail store the last thing you’ll ever want to do again for the rest of your life is buy anything retail -- especially if it’s for your own store. Buying your store fixtures wholesale is not only mandatory it’s a last resort after you’ve tried buying antique fixtures at a fraction of the cost. Even if you’ve hired a top-notch retail store designer, he or she should be buying your fixtures and other materials at prices even better than wholesale. The designer should be charging for his services and not making a markup on the raw materials.

If you’re setting up your store by yourself, you have to shop around to know the best wholesale prices to pay for your fixtures. But expect to pay full price for the design and manufacture of items that must be custom-made for you. For example, if you want a certain look imitated in a new material you can expect to pay a premium for that service as well. But if your tastes are not too esoteric and if your product can be handled tastefully in a variety of attractive displays you should have no trouble finding the right fixtures at the right wholesale prices to fit your budget. Research and flexibility is the key here. After all, whatever it is that you are selling, you wouldn’t pay retail for it, so why pay retail for the fixtures?

There are numerous store fixture wholesalers in and around every city in
America. There are enough stores in existence in any major city and enough new ones opening up to make the wholesale market for fixtures a healthy and competitive one. Visit them, get their catalogues when you are planning the look of your store and ask them about closeouts and discontinued items for sale. Their business, like yours, changes with the seasons, the trends and technology. Give yourself time to make your purchase and you may end up getting the fixtures you’ve been wanting at prices even better than you expected.

How to Make Money in the Golf Industry

How to Make Money in the Golf Industry
by: Seb Jay

The golf industry is a multi-billion dollar market with a global presence. It is responsible for the employment of many tens of thousands of people around the world, and it provides pleasure to millions who love to play or watch the game of golf.

From the management of international golf clubs to the sale of golf-related products, there is a vast array of business opportunities to be found in the golf industry. If you own or manage a business related to the golf industry then you'll already know what it takes to stake a claim to a share of this market.

However, if you're just starting up a golf business or perhaps your golf business is not generating the revenue that you originally envisaged, your next (or first) move should be to power-up some joint ventures.

The Power of Joint Ventures in the Golf Industry

Joint ventures are a very powerful concept in any business. In the golf industry joint ventures can boost sales, create multiple streams of income, help you launch a new golf product and provide you access to a greater proportion of your target market. Not only will joint ventures propel your golf business towards success than knows no bounds, but they give you the potential to achieve personal wealth too!

So, just how do joint ventures work in the golf industry? Here are some suggestions on how joint ventures can generate massive growth for you and your golf business.

1) Sell another company's golf products: Why not utilize the customer database that you have and arrange a joint venture to sell another company's golf-related products to your clients in exchange for a share of the profits? This way you expand your product range and generate more revenue with minimal effort.

2) Sell your golf products through another company: Joint ventures work the other way round too! Why not establish joint ventures where other companies sell your golf products for a slice of the commission? This way you could break into new geographical markets with your golf products and access more clients.

3) Swap resources: Joint ventures can provide your company with access to resources owned by other companies. These 'resources' could be anything from manpower and sales know-how to storage space and state-of-the-art machinery. Basically, anything you need to maximize your sales efforts. In return you could offer the company access to your customer database or advertising space on your web site.

4) Diversify: All successful companies do it! Diversification, whether through product range or customer type, is the key to long-term business success. Joint ventures allow you to find business partners through whom you can bring diversity to your business.

How to Start Your Home Based Business and Quit Your Day Job

How to Start Your Home Based Business and Quit Your Day Job
by: Charles Fuchs

Ever dream of leaving that daily commute, nagging boss, and finding your freedom in running your own home based business? Can’t wait until the day you can walk out the door and work at home? Well, the key is finding the right home based business that will allow your dream to become a reality, and quickly.

No one wants to feel forced to stay in a job they do not like. If you already have a part time home based business that you believe can make you enough money, go for it. However, if you have no idea what to do in your business, then you first want to find a home based business that will pay you a continuous residual income on a monthly basis. This way you do not have to stress about selling enough to live on each month.

You will also want to find a consumable product for your home based business. Some of the most lucrative businesses are those in which the consumer needs to replenish a supply of it on a monthly basis. This way you only have to build a small base of repeat consumers, and you don’t have to work so hard to build a new consumer base.

Also, you will want to find a product that is easy to market. Complicated products are hard to sell, because consumers don’t want to think that hard about what they are going to purchase. Make sure that the service or product your home based business is selling is not only simple to understand but reliable and easy to use. People want to buy a product that will work on a regular basis. Create a great reputation for your home based business by choosing a quality product.

Selling an exclusive product or service is key to making money in your home based business. If it cannot be found anywhere else, you’ve found your niche. Make sure your clients feel like they just have to get the product or service from you. Many companies start up and sell a product that people can find almost everywhere. Find your uniqueness in your home based business product and use it to your advantage.

Hard work and a great product are two components that spell success for the home based business owner. One without the owner makes success very difficult. Find your niche. Then sooner than later you’ll be able to put in your notice and find your financial freedom in your home based business.
