Hi,

A year and a half ago, sinubukan kong mag-attempt magbusiness. Its my first business venture.
As I checked yesterday my bank account, bumalik na ung ipon/initial capital ko to 350K yipeeeee!  :cool2:

My computer shop business is doing fine.  I just recently signed a 2 years extension sa mayari ng building
where my shop is located.

Now I have a fresh new capital to start a new venture but I think I am stuck on what to do next.

I am thinking of this idea pero not sure kung papatok ba ito.

There are lot's of site ngayun offering items na mura:

1.  www.cashcashpinoy.com
2.  www.metrodeal.com

and mga items for sale in 2nd hand.

1. www.tipidpc.com (particularly PS3/not the pc unit)
2. www.sulit.com

..so naisip ko, I will go buy items from these sources and sell it online at an increase price.

Mga naisip kong bilhin:
1. USB
2. SD cards
3. Sony PS3
4. ?
5. ?

How do I sell:
1. Pwedeng online
2. Pwede reng display since I still have space
3. Deliver?? Not sure on this as I still have a daytime 8-5 job. Pwede akong mag hire??? Hmmmm...

Questions:
1. How do I handle warranty sa mga items?
2. For the second hand items, I think this can be done on a spot up check muna bago bili basis.
3. What do most people want sa isang baranggay aside from food.

I am still in the business planning stage so I know marami pang loopholes sa plan ko.   :harhar:

So in a sense it's a buy and sell.  Baka lang me gumagawa nito kaya naisip kong magtanong.

P.S.  This will be a side business na pwede kong imonitor habang nasa opis.  I do have a lot of free time sa work
so I am thinking of using it para kumita.

kakumpetensiya mo sa USB at SD Card is CD-r King, since they sell it cheaply na
kung magbebenta ka, price it lower than them if you can

If you will buy it second hand, you will probably have a hard time selling it at an increased price, alam kasi ng mga online buyers na for used gadgets, supposedly half the price na ibinebenta iyan. Take note, checking for the price of a brand new product is just a google away. Siyempre may buyers na gusto lower than half kahit in good condition pa yang device mo.
Of course, unless malaki talaga ang demand for that device.

Answers to questions:
1. Don't know much on warranty but maybe study on these terms:
Manufacturer's Warranty
Service Warranty
Personal Warranty

hehe madalas gamatin yang terms na yan ng mga Online Stores like Kimstore and Widget City.

2. Ganun talaga kapag second hand, check before buying. Of course kapag brand new considered sold na dapat ang product before check,
less people prefer buying online. They prefer coming to your physical store or meetups

3. Take a stroll on your baranggay to see

Opinions ko lang

If you're successful in one business, why not expand from it.

Vertical or horizontal.

You see, it's easier to expand a business than start a new one.

I actually planned on opening another branch but the problem is masyado nang saturated ang lugar namen with those computer shops around the corner and pisonet.
I just ventured in this business coz I saw the location was good.
Nobody is attempting to put a computer shop there because of the rent involved.
12K ang rent ko but I am still getting as much as 20K net income.  It was a gamble but then it paid off.  Maybe because I am a computer hobbyist myself so it went well.

About expanding:
-Horizontal
Does this mean adding more services?  I started with computer rental alone.  Now I do have desktop publishing na ren. Print/Scan/Xerox/Laminate/Cards Printing

Vertical
- Can you expand on this?

Hayss.. ang hirap talagang magstart ng business.  I already started but it feels like starting from zero again while trying to add more income generating activity...

Gusto ko sana magventure sa food kaso lang wala akong ibang alam kundi kumain.. :hihi:

Just my opinion, I think you need not venture in food because computer is your specialty, you already have a business I think you just need to focus on it, unless you have another business in mind pero mahirap magmanage ng dalawang business that's not the same field (like food and computer rental)

Yeah this one is true.  I just notice it kasi while walking around malls na malaki ang kita ng mga tao who are venturing into this type of business.

Nakakasawa na ren kasi minsan mag-work from 8-5... :watchuthink:

Ang hirap lang kasi mag conceptualize ng business that would work.  Eniweys I will just keep on looking around for more business opportunities.

Thanks! :cool2:

malaki ang sales yes, but how sure are you na malaki ang profits? Lalo na sa malls I think malaki renta, not really sure

if you really want to start a food biz, start learning how to cook hehe

I recently had an experience where I had to dive into a neighborhood netshop where the customers look like mga suki. I was there for like, 15 minutes to print out a message. The guy next to me was served with what looked like double order of instant pancit canton with a boiled egg and 2 pieces of toasted bread  :eek:

I mean, that is a lateral business, right? It is an insider thing. There was no indication from the outside that they were selling food. It could have been just a small kitchen in the back with a ref full of drinks.

Or, you could carve out a space for a small tindahan na accessible sa street---to rent--- to serve both passersby and people inside the shop. I think it is one of the things that differentiate an endeavor with repeat business---the level of comfort the experience provides.
