Improve how you sell yourself, your brand and your products

Designers enjoy the creative side of their business but are often unsure on how to approach buyers and lack the confidence to sell their products. The sales process can be daunting and involves choosing the right target customer, understanding the best way to approach them, preparing a pitch and presenting it to the buyer.

This interactive session, part of the Design Create Sell series of workshops, will focus on how to prepare for this process so you can expand your customer base, improve your sales technique and increase orders.

This workshop is suitable for fashion, accessory and jewellery designers that struggle with the sales side of their business.

It will cover the following:

  • Defining your unique selling point (USP)
  • Comparative shopping & research
  • Getting sales appointments
  • Developing a sales pitch framework
  • Anticipating and planning a buyer’s requirements.
  • Preparing for a sales appointment
  • Handling negotiation
