So you want to get your handmade products into shops, galleries, or boutiques… BUT – how do you find the right ones to approach?
There are a ton of ways to do this – many of which we teach in my newly available course – Wholesale Know-How – but in this episode, I’m outlining just 5 of the strategies you can use to track down potential new stockists who would be a perfect fit for your product.
It’s important to get this step right, so you don’t waste time approaching the wrong type of stores. Of course, not every store you approach will say yes (even if you are a perfect fit!) but you vastly increase the likelihood of a store buying from you if you do the research and hard yards beforehand to make sure they’re a great fit.
Do you struggle to set boundaries in your handmade biz?
Maybe you feel like you have to respond to every email or message RIGHT NOW.
Perhaps you feel like you should ALWAYS be working.
Maybe you struggle to focus when there are chores catching your eye around the house.
Or do you find it hard to say ‘no’ to family and friends when they want your attention during what should be work time?
In this episode, I go into detail about all the different sorts of boundaries you need to set in your handmade business – around your time, your privacy, and much more.
I share a few challenges I’ve faced over the years to set boundaries (and why I took Facebook off my phone…), and share many tips about why boundaries matter, and how you can set and enforce them.
Do you have big ideas… but struggle to make them happen?
I can’t count the number of projects I’ve never started, or not done properly, or been up at all hours trying to finish by a deadline!
Why does this happen?!
Because we don’t project manage properly, that’s why.
Today’s guest is here to save us from all of that! Kate Hutcheson of the Efficient/Creative has turned her years of project management experience to helping creatives like you and me work out how to get big things done.
She outlines a super-simple method for you to follow in order to plan and execute your next project… properly!
