Your electronic product is designed! It has your care instructions, the website is prominently displayed and you’re ready to advertise your company and product.. You’re smiling at it right now, aren’t you? You are eager to show the electronics world your talent. So now that you have your design in front of you, the next step is who are you going to entrust to bring your product to life and provide quality work and service? Can you trust anyone? Of course NOT!
Choosing a electronics manufacturing company is as important as designing your electronic. This decision can make or break you and cause extreme injustice to your electronic product. This is a commonly made mistake especial for those first starting out. Many people make the mistake of choosing a company simply because they are the least expensive. That could be a costly mistake.
- Some choose a company just based on how pretty their website is.
- What about hidden cost?
- Set up fee?
- Do they offer Low and Competitive pricing?
- Free quotes
- Cost of shipping?
- Do they have a High Minimum?
- Do they send proofs for free?
- What is the Turnaround Time?
- In the end, all of this adds up and will cost you more time and more money.
I strongly suggest choosing a reputable company whose work has been recommended by a colleague. If you don’t know of anyone in your field personally, you can always look online and ask in trade-related forums. If you have no luck there, look at the electronics manufacturing company’s portfolio and testimonials. Better yet, ask the company to send you samples of their work. Most reputable electronics manufacturing companies will send samples for free. It’s always best to see their work first hand.
After you have their samples in your hands, and you are comfortable the manufacture will produce a quality product for you, look at other factors and benefits that the company offers. It’s best to choose a company with quality customer service. This will save you a lot of headache during the production process. It’s good to know that you can speak to someone who can understand and meet your needs, answer your questions, and do so in a timely manner. You may also want to consider the company’s turnaround time. You have your product design ready so you want to have the product in your hands as fast as possible so they can be ready for sale.
You want to make sure the electronics manufacturing companies can offer you quality product at a price you can afford. Keep that in mind while you’re choosing which one is best for you.
