Business idea for stay-at-home mums

Posted by in Start a business, Make money online on February 29, 2016 . .

Are you a new or stay-at-home mum, wishing you could earn some extra cash or start a business in a way that works for you and your schedule?

Just think how great it would be to supplement your household income in-between changing nappies and feeding your little one! Get your brain working during nap time and build your own lucrative enterprise.

But how is this possible? An online business is an obvious option, as it can be run from home at times that suit you and with minimal overheads. However, many mums are either stuck for a good idea, or are put off by their lack of computer skills.

Some common concerns are: "What could I sell?", "Where would I keep stock?", "How would I deal with shipping?", "How much money would I have to lay out to get started?", "How would I get my website set up?". It all just seems too complicated! Well, it's not...

At Specialist Supplements Ltd, we provide you with a ready-to-go business idea that is so quick and easy to get started with little or no financial outlay. Start selling our wholesale health foods and supplements!

About our products

Our products are ready-formulated, quality assured and manufactured in the UK. You DO NOT need any prior industry experience to sell and there are no licences required. Simply register with us as a trade customer for free and without commitment - and off you go!

As our company name suggests, we offer a wide range of specialist health foods, food supplements and herbal formulations that can't readily be found in high-street stores. For example, we cater to lucrative and fast-growing niche markets, such as organic, kosher, vegetarian, vegan, dairy-free, gluten-free, natural slimming etc. We believe in producing products that are as natural as possible, always avoiding the use of added 'nasties' where we can.

We recommend that our trade customers resell our entire product range for maximum income potential, but it is ultimately up to you which of our products you sell. We have no minimum orders, so you can even sell as few as one product at a time. This is a huge advantage for small home businesses, as you do not have to lay out money on big bulk purchases if you don't want to.

Your resale options

It is totally up to you how and where you sell our products, but the easiest way to start your new health foods and supplements business is to set up a website. If you choose this option, you can either build it yourself or let us do it for you.

For a very reasonable one-off fee we can provide you with a "turnkey" website, pre-loaded with pictures and descriptions of our products and ready to get selling to the public - start making sales and earning money in no time! Alternatively, if you would prefer to build your website yourself, that's fine too!

You have the option to sell our health foods, food supplements and herbal formulations under our established Specialist Supplements Ltd branding or under your own personalised labels (called the private label option). Most of our resellers opt for private label because you can create your own product brand, that is unique to you and your business.

The private label option also allows you to set your own resale price (which usually equals bigger profit margins) and target specific markets (such as women, slimmers, vegans etc) through your chosen label design. If you like the sound of setting up your own brand of products and having personalised labels, we can do this for you too!

Private label option

We offer an in-house private label option to all of our registered trade customers. For a small one-off fee we will design and print your labels for all orders placed with us. You have the option to either select one of our pre-made design templates (which can be personalised with your logo, colour scheme and product names) or you can supply us with your own artwork to use in our required dimensions.

In a matter of days you could have your very own range of health foods and supplements! It's so easy. We can even supply you with pictures of your "own label" products to display on your website or advertising literature.

How would the products get shipped?

If you are a mum working from home, the last thing you will want to worry about is buying stock in bulk, storing it, keeping inventory and dealing with the logistics of product fulfillment (i.e. labelling, packing and posting the products out to customers).

At Specialist Supplements, we can take care of all of this for you! We offer a convenient dropshipping (or direct dispatch) service. This means that:

  • you don't have to buy products in advance of making your own sales. This is great for cash flow!
  • we keep the stock for you - no need to worry about storage space, temperature control or inventory.
  • we label, pack and post the products directly to your customers for you! You simply give us their order and address details. Your customer loyalty is protected, because your customer will think the order has come straight from you!

Unlike many other wholesale supplement suppliers, we provide our dropship service to our trade customers free of charge. All you pay is the trade price of the products ordered, plus a postage fee (as if you were sending the items yourself). You pocket 100% of the profit - we DO NOT take any commission!

Become a super-mum!

So, are you ready to become a super-mum and have it all? Impress your family and friends by running your own business from home, while looking after your little one(s). Earn extra cash to supplement your household income on a part-time basis, or sew the seeds of a lucrative full-time venture for the future.

All you need to do to get started is register with us. It is free, quick and easy - there are no hidden charges or commitments. Accounts are normally activated within 24 hours.

Once registered, you will have access to all of our reseller tools and resources, including free marketing materials, product images, fact sheets and more. We also offer a wide range of competitively priced marketing services, designed to help you sell more. It's up to you which (if any) of these you wish to take advantage of.

Let us build you a website, or build your own; let us design your labels, or design your own; let us produce your marketing materials, or produce your own. It's totally up to you. Either way, you can get started selling our products immediately following registration.
