Studying the Competition

Do you love watches? If you do, you can start your own wrist watch store. There are so many watch brands to choose from like Casio, Fossil, Citizen, G-Shock, etc. and you can sell them all without maintaining an inventory at home! One way to do that is by owning an online wrist watch store. The online market is quite competitive and so you must create a business site that can rank high in search engines. Before you take any step further, you must create a business plan. The plan will usually start with the market study. You will need to study the competition and determine the ‘needs’ of customers that you should meet.

By identifying the weaknesses of your competitors, you can create a business that will surely stand out among others. With less than $1,000, you can already start a wrist watch store online. With a computer and internet connection, nothing is impossible! The business plan will guide you accordingly. You will also need to look for a reputable wholesaler or supplier that can provide you with the items you want to sell. Pick a supplier that drops ship items to customers so that you no longer need to maintain inventory.

Start a Wrist Watch Store for Men and Women

By selling men’s and women’s wrist watches, you can sell a wide variety of watches that can meet the needs of your target market. You can even sell vintage watches that can attract the attention of watch collectors. Inquire about the rules and regulations regarding an online business in your place. You might need to secure the needed license and permits before you can operate legally. Get the word circulated in your local area by talking to you family and friends. These people can help you in spreading the word about your wrist watch store. After all, word of mouth advertising can be powerful as well especially when used properly.

The business plan should also contain info about the different ways to advertise your business. You can make use of business cards, flyers, PPC ads, banner ads, and many others. As long as your business site contains relevant content and you make use of the targeted keywords, you can generate a lot of traffic and hopefully convert them into real customers. With your own list of customers, you can easily contact them for updates on your store. So what are you waiting for? Develop a business plan now and have a road map that you can use when establishing your business.
