My Own Musical Instrument Business
Now you can also start a business of your own for less than you might think. There are still good profit margins with musical instruments. Generate good money selling something you know and love. To be successful as a musical instrument business, you need to start out knowing as much as you can about every aspect of running your business.
Retailing musical instruments is a great business venture for the musically inclined entrepreneur who’s seeking a way to capitalize on their skills and interests. Ideally, this type of specialty retailing is best suited to a retail storefront. However, for the financially challenged entrepreneur, the business could begin on a part-time basis from home; as a joint venture with a like-minded retailer, such as a CD shop; or online. In addition to selling musical instruments, you can increase revenues and profits by providing instrument repairs, classes, rentals, and sales of related products such as sheet music. Also, be sure to establish relationships with schools, music teachers, associations and clubs in the community. This can be a fantastic way to promote your business, products and services quickly as word-of-mouth advertising and referrals really work.
On the demand side, exporters and strategic planners approaching the world market face a number of questions. Which countries are supplying keyboard musical instruments with sound that is produced or must be amplified electrically excluding accordions? What is the dollar value of these imports? How much do the imports of keyboard musical instruments with sound that is produced or must be amplified electrically excluding accordions vary from one country to another? Do exporters serving the world market have similar market shares across the importing countries? Which countries supply the most exports of keyboard musical instruments with sound that is produced or must be amplified electrically excluding accordions? Which countries are buying their exports? What is the value of these exports and which countries are the largest buyers? In what follows, Chapter 2 begins by summarizing the regional markets for imported and exported keyboard musical instruments with sound that is produced or must be amplified electrically excluding accordions. The total level of imports and exports on a worldwide basis, and those for each region, is based on a model which aggregates across over 150 key country markets and projects these to the current year. From there, each country represents a percent of the world market. This market is served from a number of competitive countries of origin. Based on both demand- and supply-side dynamics, market shares by country of origin are then calculated across each country market destination. These shares lead to a volume of import and export values for each country and are aggregated to regional and world totals. In doing so, we are able to obtain maximum likelihood estimates of both the value of each market and the shares that countries are likely to receive this year. From these figures, rankings are calculated to allow managers to prioritize markets. In this way, all the figures provided in this report are forecasts that can be combined with internal information for strategic planning purposes.
