    Does anybody know any good products which you can sell for profit and start up a business in selling it door to door/online?

    I am thinking iPhone covers. But I am not sure yet. I was hoping I could sell someone elses product door to door for good commission like door to door affiliate marketing. But I can't find any.

    I've sold knives, gutters, vacuums, land lawn care services door to door, and it can be tough, especially at $26/linear foot for gutters. I've sold mortgage and insurance services via telemarketing and direct mail. The trick is being comfortable and confident in your product as well as your method. Do you enjoy going out there and meeting people face to face? Or would you rather sit at a desk? The method you choose will largely be based on the product you choose to market. Choosing a product shouldn't be rushed. You have to do a lot of calculations to find out whether larger sales of a smaller product or few sales of a large product will generate the desired results. Also try to choose a product you can identify with. If you don't believe in the product you're selling, then you will never convince a potential customer to believe in it either.

    Also, be mindful of the laws where you live, as they can place restrictions on certain sales practices.

    I think those iPhone covers are great and you have a good idea, But I suggest do not focus on Iphone covers only cause not all people have Iphone.

    Those potential door to door product I can think of are seasonal items. E.g. flower and chocolate during valentine, card and present during Christmas.

    Hi, iphone covers is a good idea, but you should also focus on other items. iphone covers will limit your work. By including other items you can easily expand your businesses.

    This is a good idea to start on this level... You should also focus on other items... For expand your business you should start to give offer.. like discounts free hampers, Gift voucher.. Min transaction of customer will get this much % discount.It will depend On your items.. so people connect with you easily.....

    Although Iphone covers could sell well, could you carry enough to make a decent profit?

    In website developing, what you should consider is the sole purpose of a website. Keep in mind that websites are for people and not for search engines.
