Options for launching products into the Market

Postby Virgo20 » Thu, 27 Dec 2012 5:05 pm

Hi,

Wishing everyone a Merry Christmas and a wonderful 2013!!

I wanted some advice on launching my business in Singapore. I am interested in making frames and wall hangings. I have created a handful of samples. I wanted to know how I should test the market for customer interest/ reaction to the products before creating more samples.

I believe the products would be of more interest to the expat community. However, I will be able to ascertain the relevant market only after showcasing them properly.

Any suggestions on how I can get started?
I was thinking:
- approaching stores to see if they would be interested in ordering and keeping the products
- participating in small exhibitions and fares held by different clubs and societies (anyone aware of any??)
- sharing a stall some place with someone- e.g. Holland Village - to gauge the reaction.

Also right now I am on a Dependent Pass. Would this pose a problem for starting the business?

Looking forward to getting more ideas. I am super excited about starting my business. Fingers crossed.

i think you'll need approval attached to your DP to start a business. search else where for letter of consent.

good luck with your business!

that is not enough.

my first job as a young teen was with an american company called berg electronics. as big as they were, they got gobbled up by another inter-connect manufacturer.

i wish you nothing but the best!
