Card Selling Quest #2

11:20 AM

So no luck till now.. I AM getting a lot of compliments though!.. but who says we don't learn from our experiences?!..
So here are a few tips I would like to share with you:
1) Go to as many stores to sell your cards as you can.
2) When you speak to the store owner, speak confidently.. and don't be shy, THEY DON'T KNOW YOU! ;)
3) If on't make a deal on one store, DO NOT lower your sale prices at the next one.. sell your creations for what YOU think it's worth.
4) ALWAYS carry your sample cards in your portfolio to give the owner an idea on what he's gonna get..
5) Maintain a variety in your creations and designs, that's very impressive.
6) Make your own teeny-tiny visiting cards and give them to all the store owners even if they don't buy your cards.. maybe they would want to contact you later.. you never know! :D

Here's my visiting card:

---Adore the beauty of life!---

  1. Good luck Spardha! I know what you mean, I was pretty much on the same journey a few years ago. Just an idea- if you have access to a computer and a printer, you can format your contact details on Word, print it out on A4 cardstock and then cut into individual visiting cards. This will save you time and will have professional results.
    Keep going, I'm sure you'll succeed!

  4. Hey all the best Spardha, yeah i agree with you, its best to visit as many shops as possible and you should not lower your price. I guess you can get business cards printed and do some creative stuff on them, like stamping some pattern etc, that way the concerned person can keep your card handy too......
