What does R&D mean?
R&D, or Research & Development, is the first stage and backbone of our business as a Private Labeler. It encompasses the procedures we follow to discover and design new products that fit our brand and interest our broad range of patrons.
Why should I get involved? Is there more than just learning opportunities?
Yes, there’s definitely more to being a VIP than learning opportunities. There are surveys to help us develop future products, discounts on products that you helped launch, exclusive Q&A sessions with the Houseables team, and free downloads that will help you put the information we give you to use!
What will I be learning? What type of content will I receive?
You will be learning several things about our process including but not limited to: Researching products, finding manufacturers, budgeting costs, planning marketing strategies, and the start to finish of planning a product launch.
Is it this actually going to affect anything?
Yes, your involvement in our product launches does affect what kinds of products we decide to research, purchase, and eventually launch.
Why do you (Houseables) want to share this information?
We at Houseables believe in a transparent approach when it comes to our team, and our team includes more than just those at the company! Not only that, but the products that we’re selling don’t go to us, they go to you. So your opinion on the product, from the way it looks, to the way it functions, matters to us.
How do I get started? What is the timeline of emails that I will get?
Start off by filling out your preferred name and email on this page! You’ll get an email from us really soon, thanking you for joining this awesome group and detailing a bit more about when you should expect the next product launch to happen.
What exactly is a Product Influencer?
A “Product Influencer” is a member of our VIP program. They are given the opportunity to influence our products. Your opinion will be taken to redesign the look and possibly the functionality of the products that we plan on launching. There is more to becoming a Product Influencer, and we’d love to have you along for the ride. Click here to join.
Who is Houseables and who are the people that work there? Who sends the emails?
We are a “private label” brand specializing in manufacturing quality goods and e-commerce retail. But more than that, we are a small but passionate team motivated by creating community. Most often you will be hearing from the Content & Design team, with communal input from the entire crew.
What does Houseables sell?
We are known to sell household goods. This can mean a range of things from a training dog tunnel to caster wheels for your new table. If you’d like to check out our products, you can do so here.
What are Houseables’ goals with this program?
Our goal with this program is to gather consumer insight that will allow us to more effectively source and design products that add value to our customer’s lives. In return, we would like to provide the members of this program with information about the private labeling process that they can use in their own future entrepreneurial ventures.
How do I find the Facebook group? What kind of topics are discussed there?
The Facebook group for Product Influencers and Development can be found here. Simply request to join and we will admit you by the next business day.
How do I know if I have a good product idea? Will you respond?
Product ideas are always welcome! You can reach out to us at firstname.lastname@example.org if there is something you would like us to research and potentially source.
Are the products good quality?
We have a detailed testing process that ensures we provide our community with the utmost quality. We request product prototypes prior to placing an order with a manufacturer to inspect the item before purchasing.
Is this going to be time-consuming? Is it worth my time?
Our surveys should only take 5-10 minutes of your time, depending on how much research you might want to put into them. They usually range from 1-3 questions.
When will I start to see results?
You will see results in real time! Any decisions we make based on the advice of our product influencers will be implemented each step of the way. We will send email updates to you as soon as your changes are incorporated.
What will Houseables do with my input?
Houseables will take your input and use it to create the best version of a product we can. You will see the effects of your consumer perspective implemented throughout the entire process - from prototyping to content creation.
