How To Start Trading Your New Business

She was already trading goods with local business owners to keep her store well-stocked, but she wanted to increase the discoverability of her products. She wanted to sell more so that she could expand her inventory and become a viable shopping option for people in the surrounding area.

She took money out of savings and made plans for friends and family to invest in the enterprise. Suddenly, her store had capital for new inventory, better equipment, and employee paychecks.

Her next step was to start looking into different retail forms to get an idea of what type of store would be best for her situation. The first thing she did was take a look at pop-up shops, which are often used by brands who have seasonal merchandise or are testing consumer interest in a new product. She liked the portability of a pop-up shop, but she wanted to have a permanent location so that people could find her.

She started looking into brick and mortar stores, which would give her a prime location for displaying her products with an initial investment of less than $100,000. A big part of retail is having inventory to sell, and having a storefront increases discoverability because potential customers can see from outside if there is any available parking or room to move around inside. She noticed that a brick and mortar store can be a difficult business to succeed in, but having the initial capital from the pop-up shop helped her open up a large storefront with multiple employees.

She made sure that she began to pay herself a monthly salary since she would need an income no matter how many items she sold. While it is possible to take your company public as an entrepreneur, doing so can require massive upfront investments and take years before you see any return on investment. She wanted to keep her options open for investing or selling so that if things were going well after five years, she could sell the business and live off of the profits without worrying about taking care of day-to-day operations.

After two years of trading the increased inventory, she was making enough profit to expand her business even more. She decided to keep things more conservative so that her employees could have more manageable work hours and the store could have a fairly consistent flow of customers without being too busy or too slow.

At this point, she considered getting an actual storefront for the business with expansion into hosting events and doing some advertising on social media to help grow her brand awareness.

After five years, she had multiple locations across the country and was actively looking into an initial public offering (IPO) for additional capital to expand outside of just retail sales. The first thing she did was look into taking out a loan from a bank since most large companies require significant collateral to back up loans larger than $5 million.

She was excited by this prospect until she realized that employees are also required for most brick-and-mortar stores. Employees mean more paychecks and limited hours – not what she was looking for when it came to starting a business. She needed to find a way around this issue so that she could best utilize her limited startup funds and continue selling her products without limiting her availability to customers.

Luckily, there are pop-up retail businesses that have solved this problem by selling their products online. She applied for an eCommerce merchant account through her bank and she was ready to start trading her new business.

She decided to take a look at pop-up retail since it would allow her to have both the fixed location she wanted with limited employees. The downside was that pop-ups are often seasonal, making them an expensive choice for businesses that need year-round exposure. She wasn’t interested in seasonal stock either, which left her looking at traditional retail stores.

The most popular type of brick-and-mortar stores are dispensaries, which tend to be more affordable than other types of retail locations due to their lack of required inventory. Since the product doesn’t need to be physically displayed, the store could merely be a point of sale (POS) which customers can use to purchase items online. The flexibility of this retail form was attractive, but she eventually settled on pop-up retail locations because they allowed her to test different areas for customer interest before making larger investments.

She was able to start trading her products with relative ease, even though it took some time for her customers to become invested in using her unique POS system. It has been several months since she started working with CoinBTM, and she can already see how much it has benefited both her business and the people who have purchased from her. She is looking forward to participating in more trade shows so that she can continue expanding emphasizing fast transactions between buyers and sellers.
