And there you have it – that’s literally everything you could possibly need to create a physical product and start making a profit from it!
This might sound very complicated but let’s take a moment to reflect. You can come up with an idea yourself and then outsource the design of that idea, giving you your ready-made CAD file to send to manufacturers. You can then use a site like Alibaba to find manufacturers using a prototype you printed very cheaply at Shapeways. Then you can raise capital with no risk through Kickstarter and you can start selling through an e-commerce store.
So actually… it really isn’t that hard at all! In fact, you barely have to lift a finger. That’s the power of the web and it’s gradually going to cause a seismic shift in the way that business is done. Why not be at the forefront of that change and create something amazing?
