Import Any Product from Any Market, with Our Help
“Help to eliminate risks and import more profitable products with your brand”
The key obstacles you need to overcome:
- How to develop trust with suppliers, so they manufacture a premium quality product
- How to safely pay suppliers, without paying a fortune in fees and foreign exchange
- Relying on the factory to make the product the same as the sample you agreed to
- How to choose the most profitable product, that will give you a healthy profit
- How to develop a low risk product, that makes it past sampling stage, and is not seized or destroyed
- How to transform a low quality sample into the high quality product you imagined
- Will this product sell, or take up precious room at your place, long after the trend has finished
- Finding customers, should you focus on online retail, wholesale or even export channels
- “How do I sell it?”, what do successful importers do to move product?
The task is daunting, and everyday lots of fantastic ideas never get off the ground because the person never had the know-how to import and launch it to market, profitably. The idea moved on, or someone beat them to it.
Then once you start sourcing product, you run into infuriating, time wasting obstacles:
- Suppliers that all claim to be the manufacturer, even though many have the same product images!
- Suppliers that just don’t respond, or spam you every day hassling you to place an order
- How do I sell it? How do you get traffic and compete with so many others?
- Not sure if the product you have in mind is the right one – will it sell, and make you money?
- Extra costs you had not budgeted, turning a good profit into a money losing venture
- Finding the time, to overcome these obstacles, learn everything and move forward
You have the option to completely DIY and tackle it all yourself, but here is the problem:
- Can you afford trial and error? When a single incorrect shipment has the potential to wipe your investment
- Do you have the time? To become an expert, then import and launch your product quickly.

Here is what a customer, Tim recently said:
“I feel very fortunate to have found MIL (My Import Label) before spending 10 times as much on other programs. One key feature with this program is its straight to the point. Great content delivered by qualified professionals. I’m just over half way through and the investment has been worth every cent! There is so much valuable content in the program”.
Tim, Brisbane. Developing his own label technology products

Plus we have supported dozens more start-ups and small businesses to DIY import and launch their own label products in fashion, clothing, hardware, materials, consumer goods, technology, furniture, baby products, gifts, home wares, textiles….and lots, lots more.

Focusing on South East Queensland and servicing Australia, we have supported businesses to import and export to/from the major regions – South East Asia, North Asia including China, India, the Middle East, US and the EU.
