You have a brilliant idea to open your own custom coffee mug shop. You want to sell personalized ceramic coffee mugs. Right now, that’s just a vision. You want to make your vision a reality, but you don’t know how to start a personalized photo mug business.
You don’t, but we do, and we’re here to help! The first step to opening a business selling custom coffee mugs is to open a store. Don’t make the mistake of renting a store or even a storage facility to stock your coffee-related products. We’ll worry about that.
As of now, we would like to tell you about the benefits of launching an online store to sell monogram coffee mugs.
1. You’ll Have Access to Customers Across the Country
When you start your online business, you can target people in your city and then slowly expand to targeting the entire state and then finally, the entire country. If your online business becomes a hit, you can sell your coffee mugs all over the world. With an online store, you’re not restricted to targeting just one segment of the market. You can reach out to more people, thanks to the internet.
2. You Are Always in Business
Your coffee mug business never sleeps. You’ll wake up to pending orders for your personalized photo mugs. Even in your sleep, you’re making money! Traditional stores can’t do that. They have to close at a certain time each day, but you’re even open on the weekends, accepting orders every hour. If someone is compelled to order a coffee mug at midnight, they can. When it comes to impulse purchases, you’ll be getting a lot of them.
3. You Can Sell a Variety of Products
Start with selling personalized coffee mugs and then branch out to selling custom coasters, journals, travel mugs, notebooks, color-changing mugs, glow in the dark mugs, and more. Diversifying your brand gives your customers a lot to choose from.
Instead of just ordering a coffee mug, they may be compelled to check out your collection of custom journals; people might click with them, and they might add that to their carts as well. They may have come for a coffee mug, but they left with a coffee mug and a journal. Do you know what that means for you? Increased revenue!
4. You Can Market Your Coffee Mug Business on Social Media
Social media is the king of exposure for brands. You can market your coffee mug business on Facebook and Instagram. In fact, this gives us an idea. Why don’t you establish your coffee mug business on Facebook? Even if you don’t establish it there, you still need to have your own website.
You can redirect people from your social media to your website. On Instagram, you can post pictures of your latest personalized coffee mug collection. You can attract people to your online store by promoting your products on social media via paid ads.
You can even partner with local influencers to help with brand promotion. Your goal is to build your brand by encouraging customers to leave reviews and share your posts. We also recommend that you engage with your customers and address all complaints. If you need any help and tips, we’re here for you.
5. You Offer Your Customers a Convenient Shopping Experience
Traditional stores lose revenue during poor weather conditions, busy schedules, and sheer laziness. Online stores don’t lose revenue at all. Rain or sunshine, busy or free, productive or lazy – orders will keep coming. Your customers can shop from the comfort of their home, work, or restaurant. In short, it doesn’t matter where they are or what time it is, if they want to browse your selection of monogram coffee mugs, they can.
6. You Don’t Have to Pay Any Overhead Costs
Remember, we told you to let us worry about this stuff. We offer dropship mugs service, which means you can order our custom mugs with your own designs and messages. If you’re bulk ordering, you may qualify for a discount. When you order your mugs from us, you don’t need to worry about renting a storage facility, hiring employees, and buying equipment. See, we told you not to worry.
