Xmas in July is fast approaching and some retailers are now thinking of what they can sell for people to buy as gift items. You can earn money by selling handcrafted jewelry. It gives you reason to prepare for the holiday season.
If you want to sell fabulous jewelry lines that are featured in local shops, summer is the best time to get your act together. Firstly, you need to have a branding aligned for your products. You also need to know your quirkiness. You need to have a business card, website and packaging to exude what you got. You also must have the right color scheme and messaging.
Second, if you need to provide your own packaging, always include your story on a small paper inside the packaging. Will the store selling your products supply for it, or would you want to put it in a small clear frame with your bio beside your work?
Third, take great pictures of your line of products so you can post it on your website. You can also put it in a nice photo holder so you can take it with you wherever you go. Hence, you’re selling products while roaming around.
Fourth, you need to search for stores in your area offering to sell products during the Xmas in July event. If you like, you can even shop there so you know you are keeping high quality products. You also need to know how your competitors sell. If you have ensured a unique set of handmade jewelries, you know it can be easier to market your niche.
You also need to know how much you will price for your products. This will pay off all the supplies you’ve spent, the labor for doing it, and the profit earned from the products.
Finally, you’re here to decide which stores in your area you plan to sell your products especially during Xmas in July. Ask for the manager and let him see your samples of work, business cards, the album or even a consignment contract. Ensure that the manager agrees to your proposition. And don’t forget to sign a contract before you leave them with something.
