15  CRAFTY BUSINESS ADVICE / Crafty Business Discussion / Investment offer-opinions needed please on: March 07, 2007 02:58:43 PM
Well, I just got an investment offer from a friend for my jewelry business. However he talked about distributing to retail stores some examples he gave are like Claire, etc. BUT when I started my business I was not going to mass produce. If I take up his offer, I will have to mass produce. One BIG reason I make original items is well, to have original items and I do not have a catolouge supplier for my "random" charms and findings.
I want to take him up on his offer but I am still unsure if it is the "right" thing for my business to do.

I know there are some very educated people on Craftster and therefore would like some opinons from you guys as to guide me on what to do. Totally message me if you need more info.

Thanks guys! You rock!

Below is the email  he sent me.
Please do (consider me).  I am curious; have you thought of distributing your products to retail brand stores (that is, before I mentioned it on your facebook wall)?  The reason I ask is that if you wish to target a specific store and you do allow me to invest in your company I would like to know what sort of store you were thinking of or if you have already asked them.  Do you currently have any employees?  Most likely if you were to distribute you would need two.  two full-time employees would allow you to disrtibute to 5+ stores.  It would be ideal if you would be able to focus on your business this summer and build up your supply of these products.  I would be unable to offer much assistance until the end of august as I am very busy with managing College Pro, but I think (if you do decide to take me offer) we should talk about which necklaces, bracelets,neckties , etc. are more popular, and which items we should focus onmarketing to these retailers.  I know this message seems really sudden and unexpected (perhaps a little overwhelming), but if you are to start distributing to retailers you need to have a certain amount of stock built up before we can even offer them your products.  Thank you for your time and I look forward to doing business with you.

18  CRAFTY BUSINESS ADVICE / Crafty Business Discussion / Live model to sell??? on: June 08, 2006 08:23:36 PM
I don't know if anyone does this, or if it is 'right' but I was wondering if one way I should go about advertising my necklaces is by wearing a different one each day to see if anyone is interested in purchasing them...
Another thing is should I 'discount' the price by like a dollar or so if I am wearing it and they purchase it???
