Exactly you will make profits of products if you are engaged in this business with effort more or less. Refer to these tips and avoid dropping into the pit.

Before you start, there are two options that you face – become a brand agent or seek a supplier’s help.

Should you be a brand agent or not?

Even if it’s your first time entering the artificial plant market, you will find branding of some top suppliers has been deeply rooted among the people, which is successful to some extent. But is it certain to reap colossal profits as you become their agent?

Advantages of being an artificial plant brand agent

  • No need to use your own fluid capital
  • Not necessary to keep a lot of stock
  • Relatively low risk
  • Some powerful brands can provide enough franchise support, including product development, customer management, etc.

Disadvantages of being a faux plant brand agent

  • For some well-known brands, both the agency threshold and the cost are high. Still, the profit margin of commodities is less.
  • Whether the general agency or exclusive agency, you cannot enjoy the right to act on behalf of all artificial greenery categories (including hot-sellers), thus losing part of your profits.
  • You may suffer a lot upon encountering artificial plant bands that have no stable brand image or rich experience in retail management.
  • More importantly, you are losing your once-powerful grip on brand marketing.

If you want to give up this option to be an agent, consider following the success of artificial plant manufacturers.

Over the years, leading suppliers have excavated more functions than the ornamental value of faux plants. With advanced technology, the artificial plant ranges can be UV resistant and fire retardant. On most occasions, artificial living plants are custom-made to achieve functional impacts but some special models come with attributes. Of course, the price of customization is higher than regular items.

Another situation you may get trapped in is whether patented manufacturing technology is the best. Well, actually not because the performance of UV protection and fire safety is no longer something a supplier can be proud of. Registered brands, trademarks, or patents are only used for added value while the performance needs thinking twice. The deciding factor is the fact speaks for itself. Sunwing can provide the standard or super-standard for your business plan. Ask for UV stable/ FR test reports now.
