Decide the route you want to take

One of the first things to do would be to decide on exactly how you want to add to your product range or what services you might want to offer. This is a big factor on how you present your business, so make sure that you really consider all of your options. One of the first things to do would be to look at your current range and see where you could add value or what might work well. You may also want to think about branching out into a new niche or direction, so looking into these options could prove really useful. 

Do you require any investment to make it happen?

The next step once you know what you want to do is to decide if you need any further investment to make it happen. Often any type of expansion, especially when you invest in your range, requires some form of financing. Securing the investment will really help you to achieve what you have set out to, and knowing what you want will help you decide on exactly how much investment you need. 

How will you make it happen?

The next step to think about would be how you make it happen when it comes to your product creation. From having the right tools in place, production line and even thinking about things such as EMC test equipment to whether you have things in place such as the logistics, the staff and also the delivery options. All of these factors need to be decided upon before you can make it a reality. 

Customer feedback and focus groups could be worthwhile

It might be worth your time to then start speaking with your customers and put together a focus group to launch your new product. This could provide you with excellent feedback and critique before releasing it to the general public. Focus groups can often be the perfect opportunity for you to iron out the kinks before bringing it to market. 

Create a marketing campaign to help boost the anticipation

Finally, it is no good launching a new product or service if you nobody knows about it. This is why it is a good idea to create a marketing campaign that can help you boost the sales initially and create anticipation. Doing this could even create the opportunity of getting pre-order sin before you actually launch the product, which could help you get back some of the investment already. 

Let’s hope that this has provided you with some of the actionable steps that you can take when it comes to adding to your product range or services.
