What are the pros and cons of starting a watch brand?

A watch brand has a few pros and cons, which you should be aware of before getting started.

Here are the high level benefits and drawbacks of a watch brand:

Pros Cons
• Flexibility • Crowded Space
• Ability to start your business from home • Finding The Right Supplier
• Scalable • Motivation of employees
• Meaningful business connections
• Quick build time
• High margins

• Flexibility

You can put as much time into the business as you'd like. If you like the work and have some initial experience, you can start small and manage all aspects of the business on your own.

• Ability to start your business from home

It's not necessary to have a physical storefront or office space to get your business started. You can do everything from the comfort of your own home, at least in the beginning!

• Scalable

With businesses and processes changing daily, there will always be demand for new features, products and services within your watch brand. Additionally, there are several different business models and pricing tiers you can implement that will allow you to reach all types of customers.

• Meaningful business connections

You never know who you will meet or get to work with for your watch brand. This could be the start of an incredible business opportunity!

• Quick build time

The average time it takes to build your product is quick - typically around 8 months. This will allow you to bring your product to market faster.

• High margins

The gross margins for your watch brand are typically around 45%, which is considerably high and allows you to grow your business and manage costs easily.

• Crowded Space

Competition is high when it comes to your watch brand, so it's important that you spend a good amount of time analyzing the market and understanding where the demand lies.

• Finding The Right Supplier

Most businesses in this space go the supplier/manufacturer route, which isn't a bad thing! However, finding the right supplier can take a lot of time, energy and trial/error. If done properly, this process can save you months (if not years) of time and energy. More on this below in the "finding a supplier" section.

• Motivation of employees

If you plan to have a sales/content team on board, finding creative ways to motivate them can be a challenge. It's important that you're able to offer great incentives and a good work environment for your employees.
