If you've finally decided to turn your craft or eureka moment into a full-blown business, congratulations-you're one step closer to becoming an entrepreneur! Understanding the business, however, can be tricky, especially if you plan on scaling up in the future and partnering with large vendors. How to do you find the right manufacturer for your product? How many prototypes do you need? What's an NDA and should you have one? To help answer these questions, we asked the small business experts for their top tips to help you get your idea off the ground.

Have a Solid Idea

This may seem like a no-brainer, but it's something you'll want to be entirely sure about before you begin investing your time and money on production. "Everyone wants the next best idea, but another key question is: are you solving a problem?" says Kedma Ough, a Statewide Innovation Director for America's Small Business Development Centers and author of "Target Funding." And if you are solving a problem, are you doing so in a unique way? What's your 'wow' factor?" To help you tailor your brainstorms, Ough suggests conducting a competitive analysis, or seeing what other people with similar ideas are each doing to stand out. "Maybe you're making quilts that aren't as unique in and of themselves, but the person you are serving with them is," says Ough.

Do Your Research

Whether you're starting your creations from scratch for the first time, or have been making something on your own and now want to expand, you can never do enough research before taking your next step. For example, what is the need for your product like? Has it changed over time, or is it new? "Talk to people in your product's audience," suggests Ough. And see if they'd buy it, at what price point, and why." Another great research tool: locate your product's trade show (a beauty expo for your handmade body lotions, for example). According to Liz Bertorelli, an entrepreneur in residence with Shopify and owner of online lifestyle brand, Shop Passionfruit: "Visiting a trade show dedicated to the industry you're interested in allows you to meet many key distributors and manufacturers at a single event who may be able to help you take your idea to the next level."

Protect Your Intellectual Property

Before you start bringing in more people and larger companies into your production process, you may want to consider drafting a non-disclosure agreement or an NDA. This legally binding contract, or trade agreement, can help provide a level of legal protection against other companies from copying your idea. "For creative entrepreneurs, intellectual property is often the heart of their businesses, and they can consider options for protecting it," says Simona Shakin, Director of Seller Marketing at Etsy, who also recommends consulting an IP lawyer, if you can. "When looking into copyrights, trademarks, and patents, it's important to think about the role that intellectual property plays in your business: Do you use designs that are eligible for copyright protection? Have you developed a valuable brand name or logo that might warrant applying for a trademark?"

Prepare Your Prototype

Think of a prototype as your first draft-and something that will be helpful to have on hand as you start testing-continue researching and meeting with potential partners. "Prototypes are a low-risk way to show proof of concept and gauge buyer interest," says Shakin. As with any first draft, your prototype will not be perfect, and that's okay. Shakin says: "Waiting until your product is 'perfect' may mean missing out on the opportunity to receive constructive feedback." In terms of how many prototypes you'll need, this will depend on your product and the resources you have available. If you find yourself needing to create more than you're able to, Ough suggests creating smaller versions or simulating them through a CAD program.

Start Searching for the Right Manufacturer

Finding and working with a manufacturer that's right for your needs is crucial. First, decide if you want to produce domestically or overseas, as each will have their own pros and cons. "Ask yourself how much control you want or may need for producing your product," says Ough. "Producing domestically or even locally will allow you to visit the site directly and check in more regularly (about once a year) than if your site was overseas." However, Ough notes that if lower price points are a priority for you, working with international producers may be the way to go, but be sure to also factor timing and customs when planning out your production process as these can sometimes cause delays and impact sales. "If you're going to work with international manufacturers, consider reaching out to your local economic development chapter (find yours here)," says Ough. "They can connect you with a global specialist who has vetted manufacturers overseas and will help represent you."

Another great starting point when looking for manufacturers is to tap into your industry's small business network, as these folks will have valuable first-hand experience to share. "Getting referrals from fellow business owners via social media and forums can be a great starting point and a way to get feedback on suppliers you've been looking evaluating," says Bertorelli, who recommends directories like ThomasNet, Maker's Row, MFG, Kompass, Alibaba, and Oberlo to help you filter and find available manufacturers. "If you're confident that sourcing overseas makes sense for your business, Shopify's guide on sourcing from Alibaba is a good place to start." Finally, identify your product's local association, the carpentry association for a woodworking project, for example, as Ough says this can be a valuable resource: "Your local chapter will often be tied to a national branch, both of which can help you find vetted manufacturers."

Make Your Selection

After doing your research on which manufacturers may be best for you, start narrowing down your list by comparing prices, timelines, and production processes. "Some key questions to include in outreach might be: What is the minimum order quantity? What is your sample pricing? What is your turnaround time? And what are the available payment methods?" says Bertorelli. You'll also want to prepare a quality control checklist of what you deem acceptable (say, minor discrepancies among products) and unacceptable (major shipment delays). "Be sure to run this by your manufacturer and agree on a penalty-like free shipment if the delay exceeds a certain time period-should these situations ever rise," Ough suggests.

Once you've ticked these boxes, go ahead and give your manufacturer a call. "People often feel scared to make the call, but don't be! A good manufacturer will want to help your business succeed," says Ough. "Don't be afraid to ask all the questions you may have."

Launch the Production Process

You've found the right manufacturer-congratulations! Now, it's time to start producing. Be sure to detail all specifications of your product (like size, colors, and components) on a spec sheet that you will provide to your manufacturer. By having everything listed on paper in as much detail as possible, you can minimize any room for error and confusion.

Still feeling overwhelmed about this process? Bertorelli reminds us: "Starting a business is a journey, and not a race; a journey still begins with the first step. Many new entrepreneurs get stuck in a vicious cycle of constantly evaluating ideas, and wind up never finding the elusive perfect product or starting the business. The most important thing to remember is to keep moving forward."

I am a military veteran and I’m looking to manufacture a cloth mask. The fit would be similar to ones people wear when sick but with a durable, washable fabric material. There are some proprietary nuances of course, but it must be durable and machine washable. Where can I find these manufacturers? Any in the Minneapolis area or should I go overseas? I would really like to create American Jobs if I can, but I understand if it’s not financially feasible. Thanks!

The most common question we've gotten from our long list of brands has been regarding copy cats & other manufacturers mimicking their products. It's crucial that your manufacturer ensures no information is shared with other brands. We at Kowide Outdoors have been working as backpack designers and manufacturers of active wear for over 30 years now. Not once have one of our customers had issues with design information being leaked. This has allowed us to land some of the biggest brands in the world. So, it's important you keep this in mind while finding the right manufacturer for your product. If it's backpacks you're looking to manufacture, contact us at https://kowideoutdoors.com/ to make inquiries.

I came up with a few ideas, one idea in particular, a beauty company in San Francisco, CA is interested in, but they have a $100k cap on royalties. I live 20mins outside Phila., PA. I do have another investor interested who lives near me, but he is currently working on other projects and it may be as long as a year till he can start working on mine. I have working prototypes, all of my products have low barriers to entry and the one idea CA knows about has the potential to be the start of a brand (says the director of operations who told me herself that I would make a ton more money if I were to do it on my own). Basically, I want to find a good partner who knows how to manufacture products and can finance the projects. I don't want to wait a year, I want to start right away. My family/friends tell me to go on Shark Tank, but honestly, I wouldn't hold my breath. Do you know of anyone who would be interested or point me in a good direction on where to go. I want to be able to work out a deal (like on Shark Tank) with not crazy caps on what I can make as the inventor. I want to maintain majority stake in my idea, but I am not greedy. Any advice would be amazing!

Hello! I'm looking for a phone case manufacturer overseas. Any suggestions? Also, just wanted some clarification on the NDAs for manufacturers - I was told that most manufacturers won't sign NDAs just like a lawyer wouldn't sign an NDA.

I have one that is not on the market but is very much needed for women. I designed it and use it for my self yet I do not have the money to market it. I tired to reach out the companies I knew could make it but they said they only work with their designers. I feel it's a big mistake on their part and they are missing out. I know how much this design has helped me and how it will help other women yet I do not have the resource to get it on the market. I'm looking for companies that will take your design and give you royalties . for your product. Thank you for your help, Rose Jarvis

Hi, My name is Clinton Barkley and I have being hearing about this blank ATM card for a while and i never really paid any interest to it because of my doubts. Until one day i discovered a hacking guy called MAX. I inquired about The Blank ATM Card. They told me that its a card programmed for random money withdraws without being noticed and can also be used for free online purchases of any kind. This was shocking and i still had my doubts. Then i gave it a try and asked for the card and agreed to their terms and conditions.. seven days later I received my card and tried with the closest ATM machine close to me, to my greatest surprise It worked like magic. I was able to withdraw up to $3000. I just felt this might help those of us in need of financial stability. blank ATM has really change my life.

Hi all, I see from the comments that there are many of you ready to dive into sourcing from China, and I know it's hard to know where to start. Finding a manufacturer that is reliable can be tricky and you must do a lot due diligence before you select one or otherwise you are going to wind up with some major headaches. The language barrier is a huge difficulty too. If anyone would like a free quote on any products they are looking for, please let us know. We are happy to help. http://www.proudlysourcing.com

Hi Martha, I have finally taken the plunge, after a sad sample case of my beloved product a few years ago, and am ready to send my product to a potential manufacturer. And, once again I find myself coming back to this post for guidance - I am wondering if one should have a contract drawn up before any patterns/ideas are sent to the manufacturer, to ensure there is no stealing of your product/idea and them taking ownership? I would greatly appreciate your thoughts or direction to such a contract for guidance :-) Thank you in advance x

Hello, I am Nathalie :-) I am a designer and have over 11 years of professional experience in the design & manufacturing industry specializing in apparel and accessories. Manufacturers are product makers and they have lots of production under process in their everyday life activities. So they need a clear description of the product which you want them to make for you. You might have a prototype to send them, however they will be more suitable if you could provide them a technical sheet which describe your product clearly. For a few examples what should include in a technical sheet are colors, sizes, branding, logo ect.... This will avoid trial an error, save time and money for both of you. You might get the support and help of a designer, you will see how fast and improvement you will make. I have also outsourced custom products from manufacturers and know how it feels to receive a sample not the way it should be.Its normal to have some adjustment and revision but they will do better if the have clear information to follow. You have an idea and you want it to come to life? do you need help to design your technical sheet?or may be some advice to make your product stand out?or need some advice to build your brand?. Well everything is possible! If this sound good to you, Get in touch with me by mail: design4allpeople@gmail.com I'll be pleased to reply to your questions :-) Keep it up!

I am interested in manufacturing a sewn product that I would like to be made "Fair Trade." Any leads on where/how to find a company that can do this? Preferably Latin America or India. US would be best, of course, but I'm guessing the costs would be prohibitive. I know I'm already looking at higher prices by going Fair Trade but it's worth it to me, and, I'm hoping, to my future customers as well. Still, the cheapest "Fair Trade options would be ideal. And of course good quality. Thanks, Susan

With all due respect, why not start with a US manufacturer first? I have a small item I invented and am now waiting on my product, which is being made in Missouri. I am thrilled with their craftsmanship and response time, also cost. And speaking of cost, these days, it's not all about money, or it shouldn't be. Let's rethink supporting our own country for a change! I'd rather pay a little extra for that "Made in the USA" label.
