How to Import to Australia
There are obvious choices when you want to source new products. In this site, we’ll guide you through what you need to do to identify, source, and import goods from around the world to sell them in Australia.
As an Australian-based business, you’ve undoubtedly thought about expanding your national appeal. The things is, manufacturing in Australia can be very expensive, especially if you’re doing it yourself. Specialised tooling, custom design, prototyping and more can be costly — and that’s risky if you don’t completely understand the market for your product.
In many cases, a better solution is to import unusual or inexpensive products from elsewhere. That way you’re not spending enormous amounts of money at once and you can test the market before making a larger commitment. There are many countries to choose from if you want to source new products.
But how do you import goods?
When you begin a branding project, you want to approach each phase from a philosophical and highly critical standpoint—inspect, poke, and prod until you get to the core of your brand.
Whether you’re building your brand identity entirely from scratch or updating a stale identity, you need a full assessment of:
- The current state of your brand’s identity
- How that brand identity might be crafted or tweaked to align with your goals going forward
The goal is to understand how your brand is perceived, both internally and externally. Getting an honest and accurate reflection is the only way to understand how and where you’re succeeding or how you need to course correct.
Conventional business logic is that when you’re starting something new, you create a ‘Minimal Viable Product’ or MVP. Essentially that means that you create a version of your product that is very light in terms of functionality, but just about ‘gets the job done’. It also means that the first version of your product usually has to be sold at a fairly low starting price, both to compensate for its lack of features, and to generate interest in a new launch.
Some organizations (including many small startups) take this concept even further and launch the first version of their product completely free of charge, with a plan to ‘monetize’ later on once they’ve added more features and feel confident that people will be willing to pay money for what they’re offering
