  2. I want to start my own business and i'm searching for good ideas. What can you recommend or share?
  3. Starting a new business has become a usual fact at the present time. Individuals nowadays are like; I am having a startup idea and I can start my own business. But what happens next? Damn! Drastically failed! Yes, this is what actually happens with many of enthusiastic youngsters and entrepreneurs these days. What’s the reason? Here’s the answer: 15 Best Industries to Start a Business in 2018
  4. Why Cryptocurrency Will Revolutionize E-Commerce And Enrich Small Business 2018 has proven to be a remarkably difficult year for cryptocurrencies and at the moment it seems like the bear market will never end. Fortunately, cryptocurrencies exist for more than mere speculation and while the 2018 bear market may have crushed cryptocurrency prices, partnerships and adoptions have been on the rise. It’s during trying times such as these that we should remind ourselves that cryptocurrencies and blockchain technology exist to provide transparent, secure transactions that free up commerce from invisible hands and return power to the so called ‘little man’. In America it tends to be the ‘little man’ that runs the majority of small wholesale body jewelry businesses and one could argue that this sector of the economy has not been receiving a fair shake for a variety of reasons, one being excessive point of sale processing fees from credit card companies and profit eating charges from megaliths like PayPal. For this reason alone, small business operators, of all people, should be drawn to cryptocurrencies like a month to a flame. Cryptocurrencies can work to maximize profit for small businesses while also making the purchasing process easier and safer for customers. Small Businesses will Grow their Base by Embracing Crypto-Payments Every week, cryptocurrency news outlets break news on new partnerships taking place between traditional businesses and crypto startups, but how many of these partnerships actually materialize? Starbucks and Microsoft are planning to integrate a mobile payment system which will convert cryptocurrency to cash on spot, while CheapAir.com, Expedia and Brisbane Airport accept cryptocurrency for flight and hotel reservations. Even legacy financial institutions are latching onto the blockchain and cryptocurrency revolution. To date, more than 121 banks have adopted Ripple’s xCurrent blockchain technology, which is proven to speed up cross border payments while significantly decreasing costs. With that said, the space is far from saturated and small businesses will easily be able grow their base and command additional market space by adding a cryptocurrency based payment system to their list of payment methods. In fact, a recent survey shows that more than 39% of survey respondents in the U.S. would like to use Bitcoin for general purchases. Cryptocurrencies Provide Free Advertising Showing interest and willingness to accept cryptocurrencies could provide heaps of free advertising for the businesses involved. Most crypto-startups desperately need to spread any news of partnerships and adoption as this further legitimises their existence, along with clearing some of the misconceptions surrounding cryptocurrencies and how they work. Partnerships between the traditional business and cryptocurrency sector garner press coverage from media heavyweights. Take for example, this week’s story from Forbes, which highlights a new partnership between personalized website designer Wix and PumaPay. The partnership not only allows Wix to accept cryptocurrencies for billing but also extends to Wix customers and users who will also have the option of implementing payment options into their own websites. Wix is connected to more than 200 apps and more than 125 million people have used the company to create their website and manage their online business. It only takes a moment to imagine how many customers and Wix clients will now have worldwide access to a growing base of shoppers looking to purchase items with cryptocurrency. Another example of a partnership which could potentially enrich both parties involved is a deal between iVend and GoByte Network which will see GoByte Pay installed on all of iVend’s point of sale processors and extends to the more that 1,500 global clients and corporations that the company currently serves. Essentially, this means caffeine deprived workers could simply pop down to the lounge coffee machine and purchase a coffee or coke using cryptocurrency in the near future. This is exactly the type of ‘everyday’ transaction that research shows consumers are looking to make. Onboarding a crypto payment processing system also has the potential to connect the business ‘brand’ with a new subset of customers as millenials have shown a particular penchant for the ideology underlying cryptocurrencies. A recent survey commissioned by LendEdu found that 38.46% of 18-24 year-olds have owned bitcoin, and 32.54% of 25-34 year-olds have owned or used bitcoin. As the general public’s knowledge of cryptocurrencies expands and the arrival of institutional investors entering the market to develop digital asset backed financial products occurs, these numbers are bound to increase within both cohorts.

This guide from MetaMask shows just how easy it is to create a crypto token using Ethereum ERC-20 standard. Personalized tokens could be incorporated into a pre-existing customer reward system that compensates shoppers for leaving reviews, making referrals or purchasing a particular item. Business operators are then free to accept their native token as currency for goods, as discount credits or even as part of a loyalty system for vip and repeat customers. The possibilities are literally endless and the ICO rush of 2016-17 serves as a fantastic example of how cryptocurrencies can be used. Alternatively, small businesses can forgo the process of distributing their own cryptocurrency and configuring the surrounding infrastructure of setting up wallet addresses and so on by jumping onboard with a crypto-startup that already offers the service or customer base that the small business hopes to achieve or reach. At the moment, there is no shortage of viable cryptocurrency payment options small businesses could adopt. Dether, Bitpay, GoByte Pay, PumaPay and Crypterium are just a few, and the benefit of accepting crypto payments will reduce transaction costs and membership fees which typically increase overhead cost for businesses and the price of goods for customers. Some crypto-payment processors like Dether and GoByte even go as far as completely removing transaction fees for merchants in some situations.

  6. 5 Ways You Can Turn Your Instagram Account Into a Revenue-Generating Machine Instagram has earned a rep as the place to go if you want to see pretty images of flowers, quotes and sunsets. And, for the most part, ecommerce companies have shied away from investing a lot of time in the platform, because, let's be honest, that clever GIF you posted last week probably won’t drive a lot of web traffic, or bring you a huge spike in sales. But Instagram has kept innovating, adding new features that make life easier and its own platform more interactive for users. And the result has been that the application’s value proposition for garden wholesale businesses has become clear -- something that's readily apparent in the platform's recent blog post extolling its new and expanded shopping features. Back in March of this year, Instagram announced probably the biggest game-changer to date for ecommerce brands: shoppable posts. So, while Instagram was, and is, a place where you can go for your daily dose of inspiration or motivation, it is slowly transitioning into what will soon be a fully functioning ecommerce platform. And the brands that adapt to this the most quickly may well be able to turn their ordinary Instagram account into a beautiful, highly creative revenue-generating machine. With Instagram’s new shoppable media feature, eligible businesses now have the ability to tag products in their posts, and send users from their feeds to the add-to-cart section of a website with just three clicks. It's also pretty easy to become eligible if you, as head of that eligible business: Have the latest version of the Instagram app First make sure you have a business profile on Instagram Are an admin on a page or business manager account Have a product catalog associated with a shop on Facebook Sell physical goods and comply with Instagram's merchant agreement and commerce policies With the amount of content that’s vying for our attention every day, increasing traffic to your site and acquiring new customers is not as simple as making your account shoppable. The truth is, you need to make sure you have the infrastructure in place before you even begin to tag and sell products on Instagram. So, here are my top five tips for success. 1.Your content needs to be great. Getting people to pay attention to your content on Instagram can be tough -- and having mediocre content in 2018 just isn’t going to cut it. For this reason, it’s critical to hire a part time photographer/editor who can help you make your images look crisp, on brand, and, most importantly, professional. Start to think of your Instagram as the new “Shop Now” page on your website. 2. Your captions are awesome. The caption of an Instagram post is often an afterthought. Whether humor, sincerity, or education is your thing, make sure the copy that accompanies your imagery is authentic, engaging and on-brand. Using language that will resonate with your target audience only heightens the probability of its members liking, commenting, sharing in the DMs or even clicking on the tag to purchase your product. When it comes to combining shoppable posts with a witty caption, see how Liza Koshy does this. 3. You're using the best and most optimized hashtags. Researching the hashtags that your target customer is using on a daily basis will eventually pay huge dividends. It’s all about getting on that Instagram explore page and using the hashtags that your consumers love. This also strengthens your chances of putting your posts right in front of your ideal audience. Use a mix of 20 to 30 hashtags per post and experiment to see which group of hashtags gives your posts optimum exposure. There are a ton of great apps out there, like Top Tags or Leetags,which tell you the hashtags that you should be using. 4. You've made your posts shoppable. It’s finally time to tag your products and make your feed shoppable. Tagging your products will allow viewers to tap the image, then tap the description, which will bring them straight to the add to cart section on your website. Click here to read in detail how you can do this. But be sure not to get carried away; it’s not a good idea to make every one of your posts on Instagram product-oriented. In our experience, a good percentage of shoppable posts is only about 40 to 50 percent. Have a look at some of the brands that are killing it when it comes to shoppable posts, such as Byta, and Nordstrom, and follow their lead. 5. You've begun engaging with posts under those hashtags. Now that you’ve done all the hard work -- making your feed look clean, crisp and cohesive; writing some amazing, on-brand captions; using the best hashtags; and making all posts that have a product, shoppable -- it’s time to begin engaging by liking images under the hashtags that your bread and butter customers use on a daily basis. For instance, if you’re selling sneakers, identify four to five community hashtags that sneaker lovers use, such as #sneakerhead, #solecollector, #instashoes, #newkicks or #igsneakercommuity, and then like and comment on 100 to 200 images underneath these hashtags every day. This will draw the organic traffic to your account that is needed to turn your fresh new Instagram feed into a lead- and revenue-generating machine. Above are just a few of the tactics you can use to begin maximizing your potential and generating sales through Instagram. With the rate at which Instagram is rolling out new features, there are many other ways you can leverage the platform to build a brand and begin to make sales. But, following the five tips above will certainly give you a solid foundation to start. Also Read: 10 Best dropshippers usa you should know
  7. President Donald Trump's latest round of tariffs added a new dimension to the trade war with China: US consumers are going to get hit directly. The previous round of tariffs imposed by the president on $50 billion worth of Chinese goods focused almost exclusively on industrial goods and intermediate parts on final goods that are then sold to consumers. This led to an indirect hit to consumers. As businesses faced higher costs for input goods, the companies were forced to either cut back in other areas — such as laying off workers — or pass along the price increase to consumers. While the effect on consumers has trickled down previously, the latest round of tariffs on $200 billion worth of Chinese goods constitutes a direct hit. Many of the 5,745 items on the newest tariff list are consumer goods or things that Americans buy every day: fruit juice, furniture, air conditioners, and more. ALso Read: Top chinese wholesale websites you should know The consumer goods affected represents a dramatic increase form the previous round of tariffs, according to a breakdown of a previous version of the list of goods affected. (Many of those items made it to the final list.) Chad Bown, Euijin Jung, and Zhiyao Lu of the Peterson Institute for International Economics say the reason for the shift is simple: The were only so many goods left to hit. "Consumer goods made up only 1% of the products of the first $50 billion of imports from China subject to his announced tariffs. The rest affected intermediate inputs and capital equipment," the economists wrote. "The explanation for this shift lies in the fact that there are fewer and fewer such supply chain elements left to target. Consumer products are much of the imports from China that were left." The sellers could choose to eat those new duties and see their margins decline. But based on price changes for goods hit with tariffs in previous rounds, it is likely that at least some of the cost increase will be handed to consumers. Many members of the Trump administration have argued that the increases will be minor and most Americans won't notice. ""Well, you can do the numbers this way if you have a 10% tariff on another $200 billion, that's $20 billion a year. That's a tiny, tiny, tiny fraction of 1% total inflation in the US, because it's spread over thousands and thousands of products," Commerce Secretary Wilbur Ross said Tuesday. "Nobody's going to actually notice it at the end of the day." But many economists disagree, since businesses that sell the same goods but don't source the product from China may see an opportunity to grow their profits by matching the price increase. Ultimately, this will lead to price increases for consumers and a boost to inflation, economists say. Ian Shepherdson, chief economist at Pantheon Macroeconomics, argued in a note to clients on Tuesday that while the real danger lies in the tariffs' increase from 10% to 25% at the start of 2019, the initial hit will be significant, too. "The inflation hit is harder to quantify, but it will be meaningful," Shepherdson wrote. "Most items of clothing and furniture are exempt from the tariffs but many food items are included. We don't know for sure how quickly importers will raise wholesale prices of the affected items, or how quickly manufacturers of substitutes for Chinese products will lift their prices." Based on Shepherdson's rough math, the new tariffs could add another 0.5 percentage points to the current consumer price index — which, based on the latest CPI release, would boost the inflation gauge to 3.2% year-over-year. Such an increase would not go unnoticed by policymakers or American families. "That's enough to matter, both to the Federal Reserve and to the public, who will notice when prices in Walmart start to jump," Shepherdson said.
  8. Are there any welcome reseller dropship business in the world? As we know that reselling and distributing business are the top businesses in the world now, and the drop shipping business model is become the hottest topic nowadays. There are so many people may ask ‘what is the differences between resellers and distributors’. Resellers means companies or individuals who purchases merchandises and resell it to end-customers, they can make profits from the price differences. Distributors are the entity between products and supply chain, it performs the same functions and roles as wholesalers in the market. Moreover, drop shipping is one of the most popular business model around the world, and it is a business model that welcome resellers and distributors. In this post, I’ll explain what is the differences between them, and give some recommendation about how to make a selection. Differences between resellers and distributors As the definition shows in the previous part, it can clearly find that there are some differences between resellers and distributor. In the following table below, it shows the some pros and cons of resellers and distributors. It is believe that both of resellers and distributors are have its huge spaces to make profits because of the large size of international market. Moreover, both of them are not bound by suppliers, which means most of them can easily switch products that are selling, and they can also cooperating with multiple suppliers to make sure they are freely to select products that they really want to sell. However, as a distributor in the t shirt drop shipping business, they can implement its planned sales but not selling in the dark. Resellers do not have the spaces to set up a sales plan because they need to purchase a lot of merchandises as inventories, and then randomly selling it to end-customers. In addition, distributors are much more services oriented, which means distributors are stay focus on not only selling merchandises, but also providing services. In contrast, resellers are stay much more focus on selling. In addition, both of resellers and distributors are have the lower profit margins, which should make them gain fewer profits from the drop shipping business. Furthermore, resellers should have higher inventory risk because they are used to purchase a bunch of inventories. In contrast, the drop shipping business model allows distributors do not need to carry inventories at all, and it should be helpful for distributors to have more funds for investment. It can also clearly understand that resellers are have less commitment than distributors, and distribution should be the great strategy for those people without resources or even do not built up a actual company yet. As the description above, it can clearly find that reseller is quite similar to distributor in the drop shipping business. However, there are still have some differences between them. On one hand, it is believed that distributors are much more fits for those individuals or companies who are beginners to international business. Moreover, join distributors can help them to make higher sales, which also can help them to get more services such as logistic, product selection and so on. On the other hand, resellers are fits for those established companies with several lines of products. It is helpful for companies to spread products among countries and regions in the world. In conclusion, it is believe that both resellers and distributors can easily join the drop shipping platform to start their drop shipping in the world. Moreover, distributors should be the better choices for people who wants to start dropship baby products business.

  17. Most people who joined drop shipping business has the confusion about what does a drop shipping order mean and what is a drop ship order. If you have the same question, I’d tell you that you come the right place and I’ll introduce the whole process for you in this article. Simply speaking, a supply chain is a technical term that describes the path that products need to go from the manufacturer into the hands of customers, which usually includes wholesaler and retailer in the process of drop shipping business module. But who are they and what is their function in drop shipping business. Are the dropship manufacturers, wholesalers, and retailers the same? We’ll share you the detailed information. The different roles in a drop shipping business 1. Manufacturer In our traditional view, manufacturers major in creating products but do not sell their products to the public directly. They sell goods in a large amount to wholesalers or retailers more often. Although it’s known to all of us that buying directly from the manufacturers is the cheapest way to getting products for sale, but most of us usually have a too small amount of demand to meet their minimum shipment requirement. And even if we bought a large amount of cheaper goods for sale to make money, we need to rent and manage a warehouse to stock and then wait for customers’ orders day by day. For all we mentioned above, it’s easier for us to buy goods from a wholesaler even with a higher price. 2. Wholesaler Wholesalers are those people who can afford the money to buy goods in bulk from manufacturers and hold the stock. Wholesalers will often stock products from many different manufacturers (but in a similar industry) and tend to operate in a specific niche. They appropriately raise goods price and then sell them to retailers or customers in a smaller amount. Their purchasing minimums are much lower than the manufacturers’. Of course, some of them are strictly wholesalers, which means they only sell to retailers but not to the general public directly. 3. Retailer Retailers are the kind of businessmen that we are familiar with most. Because they can be anyone that sells goods directly to the public at a market. If you have a store, online or offline, that fulfills your drop shipping orders through supplier, you can be named a retailer, too. The fulfillment of drop shipping order Now, we have understood the function of roles in the process of drop shipping, let’s learn how a drop shipping order gets processed in this business model. It’s assumed that you have an online clothing drop shipping store on Chinabrands. Also Read: wholesale cell phones usa Step 1: You list your clothing products on your online store or your website. Step 2: A customer wants to buy a dress listed on your store, so she placed an order. Step 3: The new order is automatically caught by the store software in Chinabrands’ system, so you get an email confirmation of this order with your customer. Step 4: After the customer completed the $200 payment to your bank account, you placed this order with your supplier, a large clothing manufacturer who are settling in Chinabrands. (This process is usually as easy as your customer placing the clothing order to you.) Step 5: If this dress is in stock, then your supplier will box up the order and send this dress directly to your customer. (In this process, your supplier will charge you at a wholesale price, $150.) Although the shipment is from your supplier, your name and address will show on the return address label and the invoice and the packing slip. When this shipment has been finished, your supplier will email an invoice and a tracking number to you. When you received the tracking number, you could send it to your customer via an email. Then your customer has informed the tracking information and can check the logistics information of her dress. With your customer received the dress she wanted, the whole dropship process is completed. And you earn the price difference between your customer and your supplier, that’s $50! You may have the thought that this order turnaround twice, it must be slow to deliver goods for manufacturers. Actually, it’s not all right. Often, the shipping time on dropshipped orders is much faster than you'd think. Most reliable and quality suppliers will be able to get an order out the door in a few hours, allowing retailers to advertise same-day shipping. For example, Chianbrands.com, whose delivery rate within 24 hours is high to 95%.

  19. A proposal to increase the price of the water that the City of Mountain Home sells to its wholesale customers failed to receive the City Council’s approval Thursday night. With one of its members absent, four of the city’s eight city council members voted in favor of the increase Thursday night, but the motion failed because five council members are needed for a majority decision. It was the second time this year that a proposal to raise the city’s wholesale water rates failed to receive the Council’s approval. In addition to its residential and commercial customers, the City of Mountain Home also sells water to the Northeast Public Water Authority and the Lakeview/Midway Public Water Authority. Mountain Home also has agreements with the cities of Gassville and Cotter to sell water to those municipalities if their water systems must be taken offline for maintenance. Under Thursday’s failed proposal, the City of Mountain Home would have charged Northeast Public Water Authority $4.33 per 1,000 gallons pumped, an increase of 42 cents per 1,000 gallons. The Lakeview/Midway Public Water Authority would have been charged $5.10 per 1,000 gallons pumped, an increase of 44 cents per 1,000 gallons. Mountain Home would have also charged Gassville or Cotter $4.87 per 1,000 gallons pumped, an increase of 45 cents per 1,000 gallons pumped. Council members Carl Graves, Jennifer Baker, Nancy Osmon and Eva Frame each voted Thursday night in favor of increasing the city’s wholesale water rates. Council members Rick Pierce, Don Webb and David Almond each voted against it. Council member Wayne Almond was absent. Another proposal to increase the city’s wholesale water rate is not expected to come before the Council until next year, Mayor Joe Dillard told a member of the audience who asked when the topic would be considered again. Mountain Home’s wholesale water contracts allow for the city to conduct a yearly review its expenses and adjust its wholesale rates to reflect those expenses. Under those agreements, the city is permitted to charge 10 percent above the cost of drawing, treating and pumping the water. The last wholesale water rate increase was in June 2016; no wholesale rate increase was adopted in 2017 because the city was involved in a lawsuit with the Northeast Public Water Authority on how the city calculated its wholesale water expenses. In 2017, Mountain Home pumped 127,560,490 gallons of treated water to Lakeview/Midway and 102,882,640 gallons to Northeast Lakeside. Neither Gassville or Cotter purchased water from Mountain Home last year. In April, a proposal to increase the city’s wholesale water rates failed when council members deadlocked 4-4 on the issue. Mayor Dillard was out of town for that meeting and City Clerk Brian Plumlee declined to cast a tiebreaking vote as mayor pro tem on the issue. Council members Graves, Pierce, Baker and Osmon voted in favor of the increase at the April meeting, while Wayne Almond, David Almond, Webb and Frame each voted against it.
