Start a Clothing Sales Business

What you will be doing.  Clothing prices are rising every year just like the prices of everything else.  Purchasing new clothing for children, men, and women at a reasonable price is something everyone is looking for.  You can provide this service and make a nice profit. 

Knowing your market is essential.  If children’s clothing is your niche, learning what’s hot will make a difference in your sales, especially on a local level.  The same goes for men’s and women’s clothing.  Providing what people want is the goal of all business owners.  If you are a seamstress or handy with a sewing machine, original clothing can be created.  People are willing to pay more for something that they can’t get anywhere else.   

How to start.  Any business owner needs a license.  Check with the local business center to find out the particulars.  A license will allow you to purchase clothing from a wholesaler.  Check with other business owners that use wholesalers to see who has the best prices and services.  It’s important to deal with a reputable company. 

If you plan on selling any merchandise locally, you will need to stock inventory.  An area of your home or garage will need to be used as the base of operations for your business.  A business plan sets down the particulars of your business and how you want it to run.  This can be changed later if you choose another avenue, but it is helpful in the beginning to keep you focused.

Starting costs Purchasing clothing from a wholesale dealer reduces your inventory and shipping costs.  You will still need to purchase a computer, printer, fax, phone, and sewing machine and materials.  If you already have most of these things the cost to start the business will be slightly less.   

Purchasing new clothing will cost money.  A small business loan is advisable for any clothing business of this type.  The loan allows you to buy all of the items you need including money for advertising.  If you choose to run an Internet business, you will need advertising, photos of all of your items, and your own business website. 

Local sales need advertising as well.  You will need clothing racks, tags, boxes to ship, packing materials, storage containers to move clothing to selling venues, and etcetera.   

Skills needed.  Marketing skills help.  Selling your product will take savvy and a go-getter spirit.  You must like people if you plan on selling at flea markets and other venues.  Online marketing needs advertising know how to get your name out there so others will search out your products.  Knowledge of the trends in fashion keeps the business owner abreast of changes that could affect your business. 

Marketing.  A new clothing business survives or fails on marketing strategy.  If you are selling your own designer clothing, healthy promotion makes people take a second look.  Have business cards made up and flyers for potential customers.  Even if they don’t buy something then, give them a business card so that they can look up your website. 

For online advertising, buy space on websites that pertain to the product that you are selling.  For example, if you are selling children’s clothing, buy space on work-at-home mom sites and parenting sites.  Selling on eBay will open up your business to the entire world and bring you a wealth of new customers.  Be sure that you are ready to meet the demand. 

New clothing is always in fashion whether it is name brand or not.  Handmade clothing designs are even more popular.  Find your niche and make money.
