EP 011: 8 criteria to consider when choosing a product to sell

Leighton Taylor | | 0 comments

One of the most common questions I get from listeners and readers is how to choose a niche. If you're anything like me, then the prospect of choosing a niche for the business that will dominate every spare moment and thought you have for the next few months (or years) is just a tad intimidating, isn't it?

What makes one product a better prospect for an ecommerce business over another? What are the different factors you should consider? Are there any pitfalls to watch out for?

Never fear--in this episode, I talk about 8 criteria to consider when choosing a product to sell online. However, there are many other factors you should also consider, so these 8 points are just a starting point to help you begin the process of analyzing your various and sundry niche prospects. The main points I cover are based on a blog post about How to Find the Perfect Product to Sell, written by Richard Lazazzera and published on the Shopify blog. I highly recommend that you read the full article after listening to this episode.
