7 Things that will trip you up when developing products
The process of product development may often appear daunting. Especially if it is only a small portion of the whole project that has to be completed. This is when POP Creative comes into the picture. We recognise that you have a lot of other things on your plate, so we simplify that aspect of your job for you.
Because we have worked on a variety of projects over the years, we have come across a few challenges that are extremely common, and we have outlined those challenges in this section so that we can steer clear of them when we are collaborating with you on your project.
1- The quality of our work is directly proportional to the information that is made available to us.
This indicates that we would want for you to come to the table having a basic understanding of the subject matter. Even though we have repeated ourselves a number of times, we ask that you have a general notion of what your activation, GWP, or private label item will be. If you have a variety of suggestions, that is very acceptable as well! The more information you have, the better. Even if you are aware that the concept quantity or due date may be subject to change, please provide us with the information that you now possess so that we may build upon it.
2- The timing of production.
The majority of people, in our experience, do not comprehend the timing of a complete production run. Although we make every effort to meet your deadline and have been known to perform miracles on occasion, there are certain phases in the production process that we are required to adhere to. We advise our clients to trust us! We have an in-depth understanding of your project and will do everything in our power to make it a reality for you. We thrive on being forced outside of our comfort zone and revel in the opportunity to find original solutions to difficult challenges.
3- Common misconceptions about importing and international trade
We have noticed that a lot of people have the misconception that as soon as their goods arrive at the port, they would quickly be delivered to their warehouse. Even if we all hope such is the case, the reality is that it is not. After your products have arrived at the port, there are a few more steps that need to be completed before they can be delivered to your door. At any moment in the completion of your project, we will gladly assist you in navigating that process. Importing is not difficult, but having more knowledge is always beneficial. Anyone who is interested can count on us to provide education.
4- There Are Way Too Many Options!
In the early stages of your project, we will determine which materials and methods of production will produce the highest quality end product for your item. We are always able to provide additional options, but our customers frequently find that having too many options causes them to become stuck. Don’t be concerned! We are aware of what it is that you are searching for, and our skilled sourcing staff will be able to provide you with just the right number of possibilities, so that you are not left feeling overwhelmed but rather excited.
5- Keep an open line of communication
If you receive a sample and find that you are unhappy with it, we kindly ask that you not discard the idea or our work. Tell us what you think works and what you think doesn’t work, and we will always listen to your thoughts and present the greatest and most creative possibilities to change the sample until we find something that is successful.
6- An Accurate Financial Plan.
We really enjoy taking on challenging assignments. And we are still working on locating a method by which we can offer our customers a Louis Vuitton bag at a price of $2 or less:) The reason for this is because we want to have a conversation with you about a budget that is reasonable in light of the quantity, style, and due date of the project. We are quite good at fitting the cost of the item into your financial plan, and we will offer you many options to bring your idea to market at a price that is suitable for you.
The simple response to the question “What is pigeonholing?” is “Yes, we can do that.” To put it another way, we create every component of your item according to the specifications you provide. Would you like a wacky logo imprinted on a silicone logo tag? YES, that is something we are capable of doing. If you require a variety of colour options for the products you sell, we are able to accommodate your request. Please do not automatically assume that we are unable to accomplish something; in 99.9 percent of cases, we are able to!
