Jumpstart Your Wholesale Business
Selling your products wholesale to retailers is one of the best ways to increase your sales and your brand awareness. But getting onto retailers’ shelves is no easy task. In this multi-week course we’ll talk through the different players in the wholesale market – everyone from buyers to brokers to distributors – and the roles they each play, how and why you work with each and at what points in your business, as well as fundamental issues you have to take into account like your product packaging, point of purchase marketing, and promotional strategies to makes sure that once your products are on retailers’ shelves they stay there!

Harnessing The Power Of e-Newsletters
Facebook and other social media tools may be entrepreneurs’ favorites when it comes to building and connecting with an audience, but with those you don’t always have control (do you know that Facebook does not share your posts with all of your followers unless you pay for it?). With e-newsletters you control what’s being said, seen, and can track how people are interacting with your brand and your messaging. This webinar is focused on providing you with the information you need to create a powerful e-newsletter strategy of your own in the most cost-effective manner possible.
