If you have an online business selling cell phones, it
is to your advantage to begin looking for new cell phone
suppliers. This is not to say that you are not going to
make money out of selling your current brands. However,
it is forecasted that the cell phone industry is gearing
towards cheaper handset models than what we currently
have on the market. It is only wise to be prepared for
Right now, Nokia and Motorola are the acknowledged
leaders in cell phones manufacture. As such, the market
tends to revolve around their prices. However, there has
been news to the effect that some wireless carriers have
begun tap into other markets for their cell phone units.
In particular, Vodafone is beginning to incorporate
cheap China-made handsets into their line.
If you think about it, such a move towards the foreign,
especially the Chinese market, is inevitable. Already,
you see the evidence in people’s more accepting
attitudes towards Chinese-made computers, car parts, car
audio, etc. Cellphones make a logical addition to the
repertoire of imported consumer goods from China.
In the future, people are going to stop putting such a
premium on brand but on functionality, elegance of
design, and the affordability. You have to cash in on
these trends by positioning your business to take
advantage of the change when the trickle of Chinese-made
handsets becomes a full-fledged flood.
What You Have to Actually Do
What you need to do is establish contact with suppliers
who can supply you Chinese-made cell phones at true
wholesale prices. The ideal arrangement is to have a
direct line with Chinese cell phones manufacturers. Of
course, this presents a problem since these
manufacturers are likely to have minimum order
requirements which you may be unable to satisfy.
Moreover, since you are capitalizing on a newly emerging
trend, it wouldn’t be practical to immediately commit
all of your resources.
You can try looking for volume buyers from Chinese cell
phones manufacturers so you can get maybe not the lowest
price but the best price considering. Your problem, now,
however, is finding these wholesalers.
If you look at the internet and did a search engine
query for cell phones wholesalers, you are likely going
to find wholesalers who also do retail of cell phones.
This means that these are people who basically found a
supply of Chinese cell phones and are willing to sell at
discounted prices if you make a minimum amount of cell
The problem with this arrangement is that these online
‘wholesalers’ are apparently not wholesalers at all.
They are cell phone resellers who can afford to give
discounts because they have a comfortable profit margin.
These are people you wish to become, but they’re not the
people you’d want to buy cell phones from.
