Product Manufacturing 101

Your next big step is figuring out how you will produce your product.

There are two main methods of manufacturing your product:

Option 1: Make the product yourself

Option 2: Outsource the manufacturing of your product

Watch the accompanying video to learn the pros and cons of each option.

Questions to ask yourself before deciding your method of production:

How much time can you realistically dedicate per week to making product?

How much money can you budget to create your product?

Do you envision running your business with a small team over the long term or you anticipating creating and scaling a business with a large workforce?

Figuring out how to manufacture your product in a way that’s profitable and scaleable is an important step to turn your hobby into a business. It’s important to know that as you grow your manufacturing method will naturally evolve.
