One of the things I really see transform a maker business from jobby to something really sustainable is when a maker goes into wholesale. The bummer is wholesale can be kind of tricky to figure out and if you aren't in the know on some things it can actually wind up costing you money.
I've long been been referring our members and other makers who are stationers to #ahasmember Katie Hunt of Tradeshow Bootcamp for the lowdown on wholesale. She runs Paper Camp and if you are ever wanting to show at NSS (National Stationery Show), Paper Camp is a must.
I'm excited that this week, Katie is doing wholesale series with our Awards sponsor CreativeLive. Not only do I know that Katie is quality, but CreativeLive produces some of the best creative entrepreneur courses out there.
Katie's Wholesaling for Makers series kicks off this Thursday, February 11 at 9am and you can watch live-- for free (amazing, I know! But after it's live you've got to pay for access, which you can then have FOR-EVER) and ends the next day. She will cover catalogs and line sheets, pricing, hiring a sales rep and more!
Okay, so here is where good becomes great. CreativeLive has offered to give away a bundle to one lucky subscriber to our newsletter!
