Tips to Get Started as a Wholesale Bead Supplier

by Jewel Pin Wholesale 925 silver jewelry online manufacturers
The other day I heard about my colleague’s wholesale business. I was quite surprised by the growth she has attained within a year. There are a few commodities that have been in use for many centuries. Even today their demand remains unaffected. Bead is one of them. If you intend to be a part of this billion-dollar market, then there are several ways to do it. However, to me, starting as a wholesale bead supplier seemed the best. Many young entrepreneurs get stuck with ‘ifs’ and ‘buts’. This blog will help you get through them.

Here’s how you can become a leading supplier of wholesale beads:

Bead Choice: There is a myriad of beads available in the market that vary in terms of materials, textures and sizes. Fine metal, precious and semi-precious beads, glass, plastic and ceramic are a few to name. Though the journey will begin with intensive research and end with applying the knowledge in the practical sense. To arrive at a buying decision, you must know the trends, retail preference and business requirements. Reach out to experts who have been dealing in wholesale beads for decades.

Obtain Necessary Permits: Different laws apply in different states. In the general scenario, a wholesaler has to obtain a wholesale license and sales tax number from the concerned authorities. In the initial business phase, the dealers demand the permit before selling their supplies. As a wholesale jeweller, you have to comply with the sales tax law prescribed regarding returns and submissions. You must hire a professional to keep track of day-to-day financial transactions. This is because you are required to furnish a detailed report of the inventory and purchases on which sales tax is not paid.

Define Your Pricing Policy: This is one of the most difficult aspects of a business, determining an appropriate pricing policy. The wholesale price must cover the cost of materials, labour along with a profit margin. In the usual course, wholesalers acquire jewellery at lower prices and sell them at a high profit. Buyers search for wholesalers who offer inventory lower than the suggested retail prices quoted by the manufacturer. While defining the pricing policy, there are several factors to be taken into account such as customer demand, market trends and others. Be careful while setting the price as it may play a huge role in shaping your business.

Establish a Customer Base: Building and retaining customers is not easy. You need to have an online presence for that. You may start with social media campaigns and blogs that may evoke interest among the target audience. Be consistent in your blogs and efforts. You may hire professional writers to cover miscellaneous topics about the bead business and its trends and facts. Put an effort to draw customer attention to your business.
