Finally ive got my bum in to gear and im starting my very own cloth business,
so i need some market research please help me
1. knowing that there are no cloth nappy shops in your city would you hire a consultant to come to your house if they were stocking a range of brands?
2. knowing that you wanted to go cloth would you hire someone to come to your baby shower and set up a small stand so your guests could help you purchase your stash by having someone there with nappies your guests would be able to choose what they want to buy you ect also this person would run some baby shower games to do with nappies?
3. would you sign up for a cloth nappy workshop whilst pregnant to have them explained to you?
4. Because i have a pathetic budget to begin with would you be happy if my stock consisted mostly in nappies that last from birth to toilet training? with the option to order sized nappies in that brand?
thanks for your answers in advance, just looking to see that im going down the right track

1. I wouldn't hire a consultant, I would probably just buy online instead.
2. The baby shower idea would interest me though (if I did the baby shower thing - I didn't actually have one for my pregnancies).
3. I wouldn't attend a workshop, I'd feel I could research online and also just learn as I go by using them.
4. If I did buy at a party through a consultant I'd be happy to order and wait for delivery, I wouldn't expect her to carry a lot of stock.
I hope my answers don't sound too negative, just being honest.
Good luck with your business!

1. I'd rather buy online.
2. I didn't have a baby shower so can't comment.
3. I wouldn't go to a workshop. I prefer to research online.
4. I actually prefer one size nappies so I wouldn't be bothered.

My suggestion is to sell them online and then have the option of doing baby showers from your website.
I too run an online business but sell breast pumps. I toiled at the idea of doing shows/ baby showers but would be restricted to the area I lived. Being online means I sell nation wide. Good luck with it x

I bought my nappies online (new and secondhand) but I would be interested in looking at them in real life before purchase to see if they fit. I bought quite a few of various popular brands that didn't work as they gaped.
I guess given that, I would want the shop/stockist to have a reasonable range so I could try and compare.
As a new cloth user, I found it very overwhelming to navigate cloth, so a demonstrator would be helpful.

There's no way I'd bother with a consultant if she didn't have actual stock to show me-- not everyone likes one size. I'd buy online if I was only ordering off a photo.
