I will be writing down a number of detailed articles that will not only make starting manufacturing business way too easy but will also highlight the important, essential aspects that you as an Entrepreneur would need to consider while starting your own manufacturing business.

Honestly, starting a successful manufacturing business is quite a daunting task and very few people are able to make it through the whole thing successfully.

As you may already know, I don’t talk just theory, feel good kind of talk, playing like those con politicians with words rather bring practical, actionable stuff that you can practically apply, measure, see results.

So expect the same stuff in this article series,

Let’s start with first step!

The Initial Startup Idea!

Before starting any business you need a healthy business idea, doesn’t mean you have to look for absolutely new idea, my suggestion would be to never go for absolutely new idea unless you have tons of experience as an entrepreneur, the truth is new ideas fail far more than those other ideas that are called “me-too business”.

So pick an idea that is already worked by tons of successful entrepreneurs, picking such an idea would require you to make market visits, surveys, relationships with people in the manufacturing industry, although making relationships may take time but what’s better, giving couple of months to find that really cool manufacturing business idea to invest your hard earnings or to start tomorrow and then regretting your decision later on?!

Now once you have a really cool idea to work with, next step is to calculate costs, break even, net profit that you will need to make on daily, weekly, monthly basis in initial days of your business.

You will need to calculate raw material cost, supply costs, storage cost, fixed costs, labor cost, manufacturing and packing cost, sales cost, net profit per item, net profit per group of items, price for the wholesaler, price for the retailer, marketing cost, net profit for wholesaler, for retailer etc.

Not only we will need to calculate fixed costs, variable costs, net profit etc but will also consider the overall resources requirements for the given idea, doing a thorough feasibility study, I will be explaining that in the next article.

I hope at the end of this article series you guys will be far more capable to launch your own manufacturing startup, so keep visiting and keep learning plus don’t forget to share it with all your colleagues, friends, future would be entrepreneurs on facebook, twitter and yeah don’t forget to subscribe for more especially if you want practical, actionable stuff.
