Tell me how to earn money!
Step 1

Most people think to start your own business, you need to create your own product or brand from scratch.

It could be a handicraft or service you provide, but these take time and effort.

An easier way to start your side hustle is to become a RESELLER.

The great thing is that wholesalers like GM Klang have ready products that you can buy in bulk at a bargain price. Then, it’s up to you to sell it however you want.

Step 2

The easiest and cheapest way to get your business going is through an online shop.

It can be as simple as selling products using your personal account on Facebook Marketplace, Carousell, Instagram, or TikTok.

Some people also use livestreams to host their sales, which makes it more fun and exciting for buyers.

When your business grows, you can even consider online platforms like Shopee, Lazada, or an e-commerce website.

Step 3

Imagine you’re shopping for a carpet.

If you are a reseller, one way to make yourself stand out (aside from pricing) is through visually aesthetic products.

When customers compare two similar items online, more often than not, they’ll go with the prettier looking option.

That’s why it’s important to spend extra effort to beautify your setting before a photoshoot or livestream.

If you need extra space, GM Klang is even helping budding sellers by providing their studio facilities for free!

Step 4

One important thing to consider is how you’ll deliver products to your customers.

While you’re still small, doing cash-on-delivery (COD) or manual delivery is still an option. But, you also need to think about outstation orders and what happens if your business grows.

From how to pack products securely, to arranging for delivery logistics, be sure to plan ahead, as this can make or break your business.

Step 5

Now that you have everything in place, it’s time to sell, sell, sell!

As a new seller, you’ll probably have to be a little thick-skinned at the start, whether it’s promoting yourself to your family and friends, or in neighbourhood groups.

But don’t worry, just start small, keep at it, and you’ll see your business slowly grow.

If you’re not sure how to price your products, here’s a rough reference:
