If you’re a fitness buff with an keen interest in business then diving into the fitness industry might have already crossed your mind. While there are several ways to dip your toes into this $94 billion industry, by far the easiest one is by starting your own supplement company.
Today, we’ll be talking about 8 reasons why you should start selling your own line of health supplements.
It’s Cheap to Start
Compared with other businesses, the supplement business is relatively cheap to start. If you have $5000, you’ll have enough capital kickstart your business especially if you work with contract manufacturers or if you decide to sell private label supplements.
If you’re up for the challenge, you can also start your business for as little as $1000 to $2000 but you’ll have to source you’re the raw materials and mix the supplements yourself.
It’s Easily Scalable
A study in May 2019 by Grand View Research, Inc. revealed that the dietary supplements market is expected to reach $194 billion by 2025. This is fueled by rising health awareness among consumers in various age groups.
The demand for supplements isn’t likely to drop any time soon which means you can start catering to a small segment of the market and scale up easily. All you need is to identify who you want to sell to first and then branch out from there.
You Have Multiple Channels for Selling
Most retail businesses rely heavily on selling to individuals. With the supplement business, however, you have different options when it comes to selling. You an can sell to gyms, clinics, in your community, through online retailers, or on online marketplaces.
You can Run This Business Even If You’re In Your Pajamas
Depending on the State where you live, you can run a small company in the comfort of your living room. You can be the CEO of your company and not even bother wearing a suit and a tie and more importantly, without having to spend on a brick and mortar store.
As long as you have a full inventory of supplements you can sell, your business can thrive.
