The busiest season of the making and selling year is upon us – and for those of you who sell at markets and shows, I have something exciting headed your way!
I know I teach a lot of stuff focussed on online selling – because that’s my thing, it’s what I know, and so it’s what I feel comfortable teaching – BUT I also know that many of YOU head out to craft markets and shows on a regular basis as part of your business strategy.
So, I’ve co-opted a good friend of mine – Kath Chown, who has many many years as a retail salesperson, handmade marketeer and runs her own handmade B&M – to create a resource just for YOU – the marketeers.
It’s going to be our first ever self-study e-course – delivered via email over 2 weeks – and its goal is to teach you how to vastly improve your market and show turnover through becoming a better salesperson. You will learn how to make the face-to-face sales process more fun, natural, and effective (in a non-icky way) and sell more of your lovely wares!
It’s for those of you who hide from customers; get frozen and don’t know what to say; lack the confidence and strategies to talk about your work in a compelling way… and those who hate the terms ‘sales’, ‘salesperson’, and ‘selling’ because you associate it with an icky, dishonest, used-car-salesman vibe.
We’ll show you that it doesn’t have to be that way – that it can be an honest, fun, and enlivening process for you and your customer.
Sound good? Keep your eye on your inbox, because it will be launching next week – just in time for the holiday market season!
