1. Understand your costs.
To increase your profit margin, you need to first understand the costs associated with your product. List each expense from product unit cost to delivery. Focus on direct expenses—like the cost of goods, freight-in, and labor—as well as indirect ones—such as custom fulfillment, content development, advertising, and marketplace fees. This and every hidden cost in between needs to be accounted for.
