Planning to sell books and make it as your business? Do you think its profitable selling books? If you have a physical store located nearby some school it can generate good sales for your school books. Usually there is 15% margin while selling school books in retail. Suppose the average price for each book is $10 .If you can find 50 customers daily the sales will be $500. This is just the sales and not profit. Now if we calculate the 15% margin the profit will be $75. $75 per day is not enough. So I dont think selling books in retail can make big money. You cannot even increase the number of customers in a physical store. Customers will be limited from nearby areas only. Also it will be difficult to find more customers for school books shopping as education system varies in different schools, cities, states and countries.
However there are certain books for which you can find customers shopping from all over the world. Take the example of yoga books. India is the major source for yoga books and yoga is practiced in other countries as well. This gives an opportunity to find global customers for your business if you are planning to sell yoga books. Indians can make good money by selling yoga books in other countries. Want to know how you can find global customers for yoga books? This is not difficult at all. You must know a lot of foreign people look for yoga books while they make a search in search engines like google.com and yahoo.com. If your site is higher for your business keywords in google no doubt retail shopping customers from different countries will be able to find you. You can also have shopping cart system on your website for online ordering. Take my words there could be nothing better than that to find global customers for your yoga books business. Only thing you need to do is to get your site higher in google. You can take help of some search engine optimization company (SEO) to do it for you. Also there are sites like ebay.com and alibaba.com where you can sell yoga and religious books.
By selling over internet you can find more customers shopping for your products and also it gives good profit. I have noticed yoga books which are available for $1 are being sold for $20-$30 over internet by Indians. Its a huge profit. While you sell over internet you dont even need a physical store.
Still there are more options if you want to start with books retail or wholesale business. Do you have skills to write fiction or non-fiction stories? Then you can get your own book published. Its possible now to get your book published without even paying author fee. There are certain royalty paying book publishers who can publish your book for free as such publishers earn income by selling books, not by charging fees to the authors. They also pay authors a royalty payment for each book sold. This is the real way to earn money from your business when you write once and earn like lifetime as long as your book is getting sold. Also you dont have any headache as the publishers themselves sell your book. You can find hundreds of such publishers who pay royalty income. You need to find them. Search google and you can find lot of them.
Selling comic and joke books are yet another option. There are many national and international comic brands like Batman, Marvel, Spider Man, Wonder Woman, Walt Disney etc. Try and get the distributorship for as many brands as possible. Then you have the right to sell comic books in your retail shopping store legally. If possible get your retail store registered over some major railway station, bus stands or near airports. You can find good customers at such places where children often need comics while traveling. You can also launch your own comic brand but that may require lot of investment. Investment is not a major problem now a day as banks and financial institutions do provide business loans. To achieve success you need to have quality products and good marketing. There are many professional ways to quickly gain popularity for your business brand. TV commercials are the major source to do that where you become popular overnight. Pre plan everything and be determined. Success will surely come to you one day.
