13. Designing the Product
If you decide on selling a ready-made product the key thing is to research who your market is and what your pricing will be like.
But you may wish to design your product and make it or then have it manufactured.
Design is often the most time-consuming part of the e-commerce journey. Creating the designs / patterns / artwork and then using 3d to see what the product looks like.
However, it is often the most satisfying and creative of all the processes and keeps the designer coming back to design more.
A word of caution - Infringing copyright. Be careful to use your own personal and original designs and artwork - the expression of an idea. It is easy to drag things off the internet and copy them, but this is illegal and undermines the original designer’s business and work and is very demoralizing for a designer whose work has been stolen.
