Start a DVD / Video Business

What you will be doing.  Just about every home has a VCR or DVD player or both.  People pay for video memberships or DVD clubs, but the prices are high for the clubs and there are membership requirements.  If you just want to purchase videos or DVD’s at a good price without any strings, the search continues. 

As a dealer in videos and DVD’s, you will be providing new and previously viewed media to the public.  There are so many genre choices that you have a large field in which to work.  Obscure titles that may have gone out of circulation can bring in good money if you can secure copies that are in pristine condition.  The more popular the movie, the more money you stand to make. 

How to start.  An adequate number of videos and DVD’s in popular titles will comprise your inventory.  Previously viewed and new titles should be kept separate.  Each previously viewed video or DVD will need to be viewed by you to ensure that it runs fine and inspected for cracks or other defects before selling it. 

A license to sell should be acquired locally if it is required to set up your home business.  Purchasing movies from wholesale dealers can mean deals for you and the customer.  DVD mailers and other shipping items will be used to send out merchandise to customers. 

If you plan to have an online component, you will need to setup a website complete with a store.  The website gives customers an online place to view your entire collection.  Allowing them to make comments in forum yields information about what customers want to see and what they are not interested in. 

Starting costs.  Your home office will need storage closets for the inventory, a computer, printer, fax machine, a VCR, and a DVD player exclusive to the business.  Expect costs from $2,000-$3,500.  If you decide to buy into a franchise business instead of starting your own from scratch, expect to pay around $20,000 or more.   

Skills needed.  Liking movies is a good place to start.  With any business, if you don’t like what you are doing, the business will become a chore.  Lack of reasonable motivation will not keep you working to expand the business.  Customer service skills keep small issues from escalating into bigger ones that could ruin your business reputation. 

Marketing.  Ads in the local paper can be useful to get people interested in giving your business a look.  Tell friends and family to pass the word that you will be renting a booth at the local flea market.  Many people visit flea markets looking for deals so you may meet people that don’t live in your area.  They could spread the word in their own communities. 

Online marketing will yield results as well.  Advertising on forums and business sites through their affiliate programs increases website traffic.  Writing movie reviews for content sites on the Internet with links to your website store get great exposure.  Put together movie packages that combine two or three movies in a sequel or a new movie and an older one featuring the same actor.  This will help move some older movies that you may have trouble selling. 

Movie watching is a great way to spend a quiet evening or a rainy day.  DVD’s and videos are cheaper than attending a movie at a theater and you can watch it as many times as you want with no additional cost.  If you play up this point and offer exciting movies, your business will make money.
