Nowadays, many people want to earn some income for their families by doing embroidery business. Today we will talk about the topic of starting an embroidery business for novice entrepreneurs. For those who have no experience, or want to start your embroidery business, please think carefully about all the advice I give next, I believe it will be very helpful to you.
Regarding pay back, I believe that many friends who start a business will have doubts or are not confident about this. You will worry about whether I can get my cost back through this business and whether I can make money through this business. It actually depends on various aspects, but many of our novice customers have given us affirmative responses after receiving the machine. Of course, they have done a lot of preparation before starting their business, including how to get customers, how to Promote yourself, etc. I will make it clear to you in the next time and give you some good suggestions. Let's get back to the topic, how long does it take for the embroidery business to make a return? ? I can answer you here, most of our clients pay back their capital in the middle of 2-6 months and start to make a profit. The right time really has to do with how you approach the business, and if you're just doing something to pass the time in your spare time, I can't guarantee it will be as fast as promised. But if you are well prepared, and you have a purpose, understand what your customer base needs and what you can accomplish, then everything is sunny and rainbow-like. Some of our customers start from small shops, like the skate shop and gym near you, they need some customized business, including opening their own website, easty shop, shopify, Amazon, speed Selling through etc. can help you achieve your goals. So you must determine what kind of customers you want to be and what customers need, so that you can help you complete the business of your embroidery shop.
ok, I said a lot about the pay back, so for the novice to start a business, in addition to the most basic preparation of all the materials and embroidery machine, what should you spend more time on? The most common thing is to start looking around you. For example, you can start with the flea market (creative market), gift shop, clothing store, skateboard shop, etc., to understand the corresponding business that they need. Whether you need bulk customization, or do you need some fresh, bold and creative clothing. You can understand all of these first and supplement your own business content. Of course, if you don’t want to go out that much, you can also try some ways online, such as setting up your easty shop, registering your store on Amazon, or listing your products on AliExpress, these channels are all There are a lot of them, but it doesn't mean that you can succeed after you register, and you need to put in the effort to manage them. Of course, there will be some difficulties. For example, the website construction of shopify may not be as simple as you think, but its effect is certain, and there are many tutorials on the Internet, you can build while learning. When you have everything under your control, then you don't have any confidence in yourself and don't believe you can do it well.
How to expand your customer base on social media? This is a very broad question. First of all, the most common one is that customers share their daily work on some social platforms, and some daily embroidery display, order display, to attract some interested customers and have related needs. However, this type of video is a test of the continuity of video content and personal style. In fact, there are many ways to do it. When you are a salesperson and promote your products to people around you, you should start targeting their preferences. For example, on Facebook, you can promote it through community groups and post trends. Of course, the group is researched in advance by you. This group has the target customer group you like, and they are constantly looking for new ones in the group. Sales. On video social media like YouTube, the first is to share your daily embroidery works. The second is to indirectly promote your website or your store through YouTube’s video promotion. You can hang your store or website on YouTube. On the homepage channel, so everyone who comes in to watch or follow you can see your store or your website. Of course, what I said above is not all of them. There are many channels you can explore, so please plan your store business well.
I believe that many novices do not understand what digital design is when they first touch embroidery business. To put it simply, it is to convert pictures into embroidery patterns in stitch file format, so that when you operate the machine, the machine can read the files to embroider. In the process of processing image formats, you can find a lot of software, most of which are like photoshop, you need to learn its actual operation process independently or follow it. Learn to make embroidery plates by yourself or outsource to other design teams ? The advice we give depends on your actual embroidery business to decide your plan. When you just joined the embroidery busienss, the first thing you should solve is the source of customers and the use of the machine itself. Because of the development of digital design, it can be directly purchased through various channels on the Internet. There are many outsourced design companies or individual designers selling their digital designs on different websites. Usually a custom pattern with less than 10,000 stitches costs $10-20, so you can temporarily focus on how to do business. Of course, as I said before, the actual situation depends on your business situation. If your business has a very high demand for embroidery quality, it is more recommended that you master the process of digital design by yourself instead of outsourcing.
These channels are available for you to choose from: Amazon, EBay, AliExpress, Alibaba, Made in China, Google.
Regarding this point, there will be many novice customers who will struggle. Just starting a business, how should I choose my machine? So today I will share here what kind of models are suitable for beginners, and of course today I will also talk about how to buy your machine more economically. Before buying an embroidery machine, you need to determine what you want to use the embroidery machine for and where it will be used. You can start your embroidery when it's ready, so before diving into embroidery machines, you need to do a survey on what you're going to do in advance.
There are many uses in the embroidery industry, whether you are just doing embroidery alone, or are you involved in patching, printing, and sewing. After you have a certain idea of what you want to do, you will save more time in choosing a machine. If a novice entrepreneur chooses, a single-head, multi-needle commercial embroidery machine is generally recommended. There will also be newcomers who will want to buy a small, single-needle embroidery machine first because it looks cheaper and doesn't look as scary as a big machine. We support it, but you must be clear that after you choose a single-needle embroidery machine for home use, it will hinder you from expanding your business again in the future, when you are doing some customized services for business and industry complete these orders. So generally after you have a certain idea, we highly recommend you to buy a multi-needle commercial embroidery machine, which is definitely a very good partner. Of course, after your shop is more mature, you have your own understanding of the embroidery machine and can operate it proficiently. At this time, if you need to expand your business, buy more stable, higher quality, or faster machines. , at this time, we will recommend bridge-type single-head embroidery machines with higher embroidery quality and double-head embroidery machines with higher efficiency. Of course, this is also what happens after you've fully passed the novice stage.
After you confirm the content, you can go to the next link. You need to clearly understand the scale of your embroidery business, which is related to what type of machine you are going to buy. For example, if you are doing batches, and your business scope is to sell baby clothing, the requirements for the machine will be relatively high at this time, and the requirements are for mass production, and the requirements for the efficiency of the machine will also be high. If you simply do some T-shirt making and embroidery, and sell it on your own website, you need a multi-needle embroidery machine to help you solve more than 80% of the business. So, be sure to conceive or imagine the business you are about to start in advance, so that the machine you are buying will not be able to fulfill some of your requirements.
When these are ready, you can move on to the next step and get to know the machine. Not all embroidery machines are alike. When you choose, first consider the price, whether it exceeds your budget, and secondly consider the size of the most important embroidery area of the embroidery machine, which is also called the size of the embroidery hoop. The size of these hoops is based on the embroidery machine. Most of the embroidery machines on the market are cheaper and smaller, which means that the embroidery area is smaller and the hoop is smaller. You can buy bigger hoops for bigger businesses, but often the bigger hoops, the bigger the embroidery area, the more expensive the machine.
The second point is the requirement of embroidery speed. When you use the machine, you will consider whether the machine will affect the output of your business. This is why you care about whether the quality of the machine is good or not. Complete my business scope etc. The embroidery speed is a more important content. The speed of some small embroidery machines is about 450 stitches per minute, and the speed of some larger embroidery machines is 1000-1200 stitches per minute. But the actual speed of real embroidery is related to the way you design digitally, the space between the stitches. The machine just tells you that my machine can reach 1000 stitch speed or 1200 stitch speed. Therefore, be sure to confirm whether there is a dispute in your business, because the differences between these two machines are very large, and choosing a different embroidery machine will bring you a completely different embroidery business.
Basically, after you confirm the above two details, you can start thinking about how to buy the machine, how much budget you have, and how much you are prepared to pay. Of course, I also said before that you need to consider whether you need to buy other things when you buy the machine, otherwise when your machine is safely delivered to your home, you will find that oh mygod, I have nothing to embroider. Secondly, in terms of the price of choosing the machine, when you just started your business, if your order is not a lot, then you can choose the machine under those international brands and buy a large one for half or less. Multi-needle single-head embroidery machine. Of course, some people will worry about the quality. It is recommended to go to various places to check the knowledge of the product. You can choose some well-known brands and conduct research in places you know, such as customer evaluations on shopping platforms, discussions on social media, such as facebook, ins, YouTube, etc. When you know enough about the brand, You can choose to believe and buy. Even if someone locally buys your favorite brand, you can take your design directly to his home to experience the real embroidery and the somatosensory use.
ok, then let’s talk about another thing, after everything is ready, you also need to buy some attachment and accessories, first of all about embroidery thread, usually in the embroidery machine you buy, a part of embroidery thread will be given away, of course, except for individual small The machine may not provide this service. The given thread is basically made of polyester, it is not easy to tear, and you need to prepare the backing paper. The backing paper has various styles, ordinary backing paper, hand-tear backing paper, water-soluble backing paper, etc., which are used in different occasion. All kinds of fabrics need to be prepared to complete your test and all kinds of application clothes, hats, etc. You can buy these things on nearby websites or on shopping platforms like shopify, AliExpress, and Amazon, which is very convenient.
Recently, we found in many private messages and hotspots that many friends who buy embroidery machines will be concerned about a question, is a Chinese brand machine worth 3699 US dollars trustworthy? ? In the case of buying an embroidery machine at least 10,000 US dollars locally, the price of a Chinese machine is only 3,699, which makes them feel unsafe. Even asked on social platforms, "I need more than 10,000 US dollars to buy locally, and Chinese machines only cost 3,000 US dollars. Isn't this a new type of scam by the Chinese?" Of course we know that there will be doubts, but we can also confirm the price. no problem. In the world, all countries know that China is a country with a large population, and China's manufacturing is famous all over the world. This is because China has a large population, so China's labor costs are not high. Moreover, China's machinery exports are generally factory direct sales, eliminating intermediate trade. The participation of the company, so the price is sold at the most suitable price.
If you're still worried about this, "their machine must have a problem to sell it so cheap" "Can I really get the machine after I pay?" "I buy it at this price, and I may get a bunch of rubbish." Iron" Well, these are not really big problems, as long as you choose the brand you want to buy, you can do some research on social media. Just enter their name and you can get a lot of feedback on the use of somatosensory, as well as discussions of various groups of people. Of course, if you can't search for such machines, then please be careful. Secondly, you can also conduct research on the app you choose to buy, such as choosing a well-known purchasing platform, Amazon, AliExpress, Alibaba, etc., you can check the feedback from the people who have purchased it, and then make a decision to buy the machine. Here is an example of Alibaba's buying platform, which may not be familiar to many people, but it has an advantage. Alibaba is an app for Chinese companies. It has buyer protection rights. When you don't confirm receipt of the goods, the money you paid will not go to the seller's account. If you are deceived, you can directly apply for a refund. . So please rest assured to buy, the platform will protect your rights.
