With the expansion of every industry and commercial provider heading towards a Web based system to facilitate the exchange between a buyer and a seller – in this case, the company web site and a Net website surfer – there haven’t ever been more options for the consumer buying items on the web. The position is conducive to both the buyer and seller getting what they desire. The former gets options to find the keenest price, and the latter gets a rise in clients.
What does this have to do with tattoo equipment? Well, the tattoo hardware industry isn’t impervious to this move over to selling items online, as no industry is. This means that for both pro and beginner tattoo artists the options have never been better for getting your equipment on the internet.
With this under consideration, let us review some base principles in purchasing this kind of hardware online .
1. Don’t always go for the large vendors.
Sure, the big vendors moved over from selling in mags, direct mail, and catalogues, to then setting up their own commerce sites and selling from this standpoint. But the internet is the great leveler. A guy who learns the correct way to reduce costs and sell his very own tattoo hardware directly to the buyer can undercut a massive seller. So do not always go for the largest and most well known tattoo supply sellers. The’business next door’ guy may offer a better price and more individualized service.
2. Use online classified sites, but use them with caution.
There are roughly 1,000,000 tricks going on in the biggest free classifieds advertisements site on the internet. It is so preferred, it is name not even need be mentioned. But the point is that there can absolutely be deals for tattooing apparatus on this site, but do not let common sense fall to the way side when an astounding deal is found.
And remember the old chestnut that says if something sounds to good to be true, then it probably is not? Still just as true in 2010 as it was back in the day.
Another point related to classified ads site is to guarantee the apparatus is new. If it is new, it should be clean upd correctly, and naturally, nobody should be purchasing or selling used tattoo needles as this is against the law.
3. Give repeat business to companies that are worth it.
Establishing good vendor relations is a good way to simplify your business. Once a good tattoo equipment dealer has been found, with nice prices on tattoo machines, needles, differing types of tattoo ink, sanitation gear, chairs, and so on – consider sticking with them. In the longer term, having a trustworthy vendor trumps continually hunting around for a more acceptable price.
