7 October 2013 No Comment

Light bulb Once you have thought about protecting your product, you need to get it made. It may be something you can make yourself. This is a low risk way to build up your business gradually. Once your business grows, you may want to recruit outworkers.

If your item cannot be made at home, you will need to find a manufacturer. This can take considerable research, ingenuity and negotiation. Start by talking to your local enterprise agency. Look in local directories for manufacturing companies near you, as that can cut delivery costs. Search online for factories making products from similar materials to what you want. Online resources such as www.alibaba.com can put you in touch with companies overseas.
