    I'm looking at the possibility of setting up a joint venture with someone I know face to face who has a lot of contacts.

    One of their contacts is a lady who owns a 15 year old computer wholesale store with a decent turnover. However she has never dealt with marketing online and is looking to expand.

    We're looking at building a sister website of our own and selling her wholesale products for the same prices but with a margin for us in return.

    I've never looked at wholesale before and I need to understand the market and where exactly the customers come from. who buys wholesale PC components? How can I engage them online?

    These are some of the questions i'm thinking.

    If anyone has any experience in this niche and is willing to part some information to help another BHWer i'd greatly appreciate the help.

    Thank fellas

    Matt

    It depends on how your looking at it...if your looking at customer basis they come from people who get to your site by word of mouth, online marketing, through social media such as facebook, twitter etc.

    If your looking at who buys wholesale PC components i suggest you engage them face to face and talk to them. Look for stores, shops etc:)

    I'm guessing it's going to be business owners who look for new items to sell. So i can't retail this stuff. I'm basically driving enquiries through my site.

    I think I would need to reach out to business owners rather than target a Google search term. Make connections. However, it is easy saying that, creating a blueprint to success is another thing.

    I think the question is;

    Where do wholesale buyers come from when they look for new suppliers online?
