If you are looking for a way to augment your income and love bunnies then you should consider starting your own online business. There are people who earn a considerable amount of money selling pet related products online and you can take advantage of this opportunity. The good news is you do not require a large amount of money to start selling pet food, in fact all you need is a domain, hosting plan for your website and you are practically in business.
Identifying the Best Quality Pet Food
While the conversation will be focused heavily on finding the best rabbit food, you can apply the concepts to all pet related products. Start by finding out everything you can about the firms that manufacture the rabbit food. Consumers tend to focus on pricing first but you want to distinguish your business as one that is focused on quality first and price second. When assessing the manufacturers of the rabbit food you need to find out how long they have been in business and where their business is located. If the company is relatively new it would not be wise to sell or use their rabbit food because the company does not have an established reputation. Another potential cause of concern is if the manufacturer is located overseas, these overseas firms may have substandard quality control processes in place which means the rabbit food could be tainted.
When you have found rabbit food manufacturers that have been in business for quite some time and are based in the same domestic market as you, you will need to reach out to them and find out whether they have an affiliate program. Some manufacturers have an affiliate program so you can resell through them, however, the majority of manufacturers do not use affiliates so you will need to find a retailer who offers affiliate reseller opportunities. While screening the firms that offer these affiliate programs you need to find out whether you get a bulk discount based on the total volume of rabbit food you sell or is the discount applied right from the start? If the affiliate offers immediate discounts instead of tiered incentives, then you can earn considerably more money from day one.
Identifying Sources of Potential Customers
After you have found a supplier and have your website ready you will need to start looking for customers. A great source of customers is social media websites. There are numerous groups that are dedicated to pets. You can join those groups and be an active participant in the conversations about owning rabbits. During the course of the interactions you could mention your website and how you only deal with top quality rabbit food. This is a passive way to generate traffic and sales via your affiliate website. One you get a few sales through the door and some revenue coming in you can start utilizing alternative sources of traffic which include pay per click advertising. Affiliate marketing is a great way to augment your income while helping rabbits lead a healthier life.
