Bonjour Week 4 - STOP, DROP, AND SELL

Bonjour! 

We hope you’re off to a super and successful start! 

Now that you are officially launched and have your sights set on achieving Designer Début, let’s join Chalk Couture™ Cofounder and Director of Business Intelligence, Sarah Newbold, for a look at some simple strategies for selling. 

A FEW THINGS TO KNOW
Best Ways to Sell 
As Sarah said, Designers make money with Chalk Couture in a whole host of interesting ways. Below is a quick review of your top options:

  • One-to-One: Your enthusiasm is contagious! Talk to your friends, neighbors, co-workers, and social network about Chalk Couture. Invite them to follow you online, join your local Pop-Up Shops, and visit you at vendor events and craft fairs. 
  • Your Chalk Site: Your Chalk Couture website is at work 24/7, so make sure to share your personal web address with everyone! 
  • Workshops and Classes: Holding workshops and classes (both live and online) is a fun way to attract new customers. You can pre-select a project everyone completes as a group, or allow attendees to choose from two or three different options. (Check out the sales courses in the LEARN section of your Resources Library for more info about how to work it with workshops.)

SOMETHING TO DO

Chalk Shop by Square is a super handy point of sales tracking and payment app that will allow you to manage your product inventory, process customer orders, sell bundles and finished goods, send invoices, and charge workshop fees in a snap.

GUIDING YOU TO GREATNESS!
Chalk Couture’s Policies and Procedures ensure a level playing field for all Designers and protect the company’s brand. Here are a few sales policies Designers ask about most:

Can I sell out of a store?
No. You may not sell products in a “fixed location,” which includes retail stores and websites other than your Chalk Site.

Can I promote Chalk Couture as part of another business I have?
No, policies require that you separate Chalk Couture from other business interests, including on social media. However, you can always share within your Chalk Couture business projects that include non–Chalk Couture items. For example, you could include non–Chalk Couture products if you’re doing Facebook Lives, creating videos, or posting photos of projects. Just keep the focus on Chalk Couture items in your comments.

How much should I buy at once?
You’re encouraged to place orders for products to sell at pop-up shops, vendor events, workshops, and so forth, but only for the amount of product you believe you can reasonably sell within the coming month. (For more information, reference “Excess Inventory” and “Bonus Buying” in Policies and Procedures, Section 6.2.)

We’re rooting for you!
