I want to Sell custom invitations and stationary. There are so many great invitation manufacturers and designs !! I`m excited about getting started but only if I knew how to start !
Firstly, you should exactly know about your target market. Businessess? or Personal Customers? Do some research on existing competion. After that, you can consult with Yahoo Business Internet package. They can help you kickstart with low costs coupled with marketing for your new business
I`ve done some invitations for family and friends but I want to initially start with just getting my name out there to get more clientele. I`d eventually also want a stationary store, but first things first huh ?
Question, If I`m selling from my home and ordering the cards from the manufactorer and then sending to the client, do I have to have a tax id ?
I don`t know anything about this, but I would think you would. I don`t think getting a tax ID costs much. Maybe $50 or so. Plus, you can use that tax ID for other things, like if you wanted to buy t-shirts wholesale, etc. OR you can get into Market. My mom has a little antique business and we went to the market in Atlanta just to shop.
Plus, the tax ID might really, really inspire you to move full speed ahead with your business!
Go for it!
