Have you been dreaming of developing your own products?  Bringing your idea to life and selling it online or retail outlets? or are you currently developing your own products offshore and have run into a wealth of problems?

Turning your idea into a reality is a bit more complicated than just handing your design over to a manufacturer or developer and waiting for the profits to roll in.

I am here to help the product developer/inventor like you turn their brand or Private Label product into thriving businesses by crafting a profitable online e-commerce shop and a brand they’re proud of.  The future of consumer products is becoming more personalized, so that private labels will have a more important role in the next few years as well being innovative with new product ideas and concepts.

I assist and help my clients with the following Product Development areas:

Market research. Before you spend a lot of time and money creating a product, you should know if anyone will want to buy it. Look at what’s out there and size up the competition. Do products that are similar to your idea exist, and if so, where are they sold and who’s buying them? Answering these questions will give you an idea of your target market, as well as what you’ll need to do differently to stand out from your competitors.

Patent research. Would your design infringe upon someone else’s copyright or intellectual property visit your IP website and investigate any patents on items like the one you want to invent

Developing a prototype.  Once you’ve found your market and ensured that your legal path is clear, it’s time to start bringing your idea to fruition.  I help with my team of designers assist you in e prototype development.

Off Shore Manufacturing. You work directly with my procurement team to assist in finding manufactures locally and offshore. We take out the middle man and all the dogey brothers on Alibaba ( please don’t go down that track it only leads to heartache)

Branding.  One of the most important elements of building an e-commerce business is developing a longstanding and likable brand with your audience. However, many people outside of advertising and marketing still hold the notion that a brand is little more than a logo. A brand is in fact so much more.  Over the years, branding is one topic I have found most people avoid when starting their business. After talking to hundreds of e-commerce entrepreneurs, it was a common and reoccurring theme. Most understood the importance of building a brand, but beyond a logo, many didn’t know what exactly a brand was and they had absolutely no idea where to begin to craft one, and I am here to help get your branding on point – it is what sets brands apart in this competitive marketplace.
