    If you wanted to sell a special lamp online, you could probably do a search for wholesalers who only sell lamps. Contact them, show them your information to confirm that you're a REAL business owner (legal documents), and inquire on rates. Or if they have a website, just buy the lamps in a certain quantity, sell on ebay or wherever - and repeat. Do a Google search to start. And of course.... it doesn't have to be "lamps".

    Creating a product generally would come out of some sort of experience or expertise, which would be what gives you the headstart you are looking for.

    If you want to create something but have no idea how, what gives you the impression that you would be able to position yourself as the expert that people should buy it from?

      I mean .. i am an expert in my niche that is a fact and making something from scratch would be the challenge.
      The lamp was just an example.
      I would create a new product for my niche it's the whole creating the product itself that i am wondering.
      i can imagine that not everyone that makes a product knows how to engineer it?
      Like someone on kickstarter creates a speacial jacket with compartments and such i bet he is not making the vest himself ?

    You would want to find a manufacturer, give them the design and have them make the photo type and molds to make your product in bulk. Probably would be cheaper to source it to china.

    Hi you will probably need a product designer and a reliable distribution company as a start, as for manufacturing you can do in China to low the cost of your product.
