together with a friend of mine we want to start a business where we offer to produce components of different sizes and styles for a lower price than the company's own price.
The process should work as follows:
We will talk with the potential customer and say that we will try to produce parts which normally the company itself produces for a certain price. This should be of course lower than the current price which is paid by the company.
We will check if this will be possible without reducing the quality of the product.
So, the whole process, even if it doesn't bring any advantages to the customer, will
not produce any kind of costs to the customer. In fact, the customers have nothing
There are only some problems:
We still don't have an office and everything else which is needed to appear like a real business like a website, telephone number etc..
Nonetheless, we thought to just start by contacting some potential customers. However, we dont know if we:
1. Should do this in this stage (without having an office, website etc.)
2. If we should do it
-> shall we contact them via phone, email or traditional mail?
What is your opinion on those 2 points? Do you think we are correct to start with it now to just see how it really goes?
Do you have better ideas?
Thanks for all your thoughts
