      Question submitted 27/01/21 @ 10:52am

      Hi there, I am having issues finding a manufacture for cosmetic brushes. Most I have found are based in China and have been using Alibaba. However, I get bombarded by messages that are not what I am looking for and having communication issues/language barriers. I would appreciate any advice on firstly how to find suppliers and secondly how to negotiate around their MOQ’s.Thanks Jenna

      Question submitted 19/11/20 @ 10:56pm

      Hi, a great service you provide. I am struggling to make my first conversion into a sale. I have been focusing on one revenue stream which required the less CAPEX which is micro Aquaponic systems for educational use in schools. I have the product, the vision (which people seem to resonate with), and the educational resources, but people aren’t clicking buy… am I over priced? Need to invest more in marketing? Change the pitch? Any advice as to where to direct my energy would be gratefully recieved.Nga mihiNick Chapman Aquaponics NZ | www.aquaponicsnz.com | www.facebook.com/aquaponicsnz

      Question submitted 09/10/20 @ 08:18am

      This is really a question relating to exporting, but I couldn’t find this field. I’m wanting to create an export plan to enter offshore markets with a new NZ made and designed product that has been validated in NZ. The product is used in the healthcare/disability sector. I’d be grateful for some help to:- Create criteria of good offshore markets to target for our product- Picking markets where we have the best chance of success- Insight into how offshore healthcare/government organisations runAnyone with experience in healthcare/disability/medical industries in the following markets: AU, US, UK, Canada, Germany would be great. Thanks in advance.

      Question submitted 02/09/20 @ 05:40am

      We currently have a startup idea and started working on validation. Upon researching competitors I found an already established company that does almost exactly what we do. The only thing I can think of that makes our idea unique is that we’re based in NZ so we desperately need advice on what we should do with our idea. How can we go about finding a unique value proposition so we have better standing against competitors? We are still in the very early stages so this is quite discouraging but we don’t want to give up yet.

      Question submitted 01/09/20 @ 01:48pm

      Hi! We are beginning to sell more and more of our handmade jewellery overseas. Being jewellery we must apparently send it via international courier which is expensive at $57+ to germany, US etc. We currently use our local NZ post shop but this is proving to be a bit of a rigmarole and seems expensive. Is there a better option? Dhl perhaps? Or via a company like Interparcel? I’d like to be able to book and pay online, print any documents needed off myself, and have them pickup the parcel from my door. It looks like Dhl does all of these things but are there better options available in NZ these days? My internet research thus far has confused me further so any help would be greatly appreciated! šŸ™‚ Thanks in advance! Marisa: www.offtrackarts.nz
