You’re a maker. You’re selling your products through Facebook, Instagram, Etsy, your own website or a combination of ways.
You know you can scale your business by selling to retailers but where do you begin?
I know this is a question that stumps and scares many makers.
So I took some time to create a checklist just for you, the maker and shop owner too. The checklist has 20 items on it. 12 that I recommend checking off before you can really get started and 8 that can come later on as your business grows.
Each of the 20 items on the checklist has questions to help you determine if you can check that item off the list and move on to the other items. If you can’t check it off, it’s time to implement some things, do some research or make a decision.
Here are just a couple of the items on the checklist:
Wholesale VS Consignment – Are you prepared to sell your products at wholesale prices (usually 50% of MSRP) or would you prefer to agree on terms with a retailer, get a higher percentage of the sale but only get paid as your inventory sells?
Promotional Materials – If requested, can you provide the retailer with business cards, flyers, brochures or something else to help promote your business?

To take it one step further, I now answer next-level questions in an online workshop where you’ll watch a one-hour presentation and receive 2 more tools to help you on your journey pitching to retailers.
- “Do I call, email or stop in a retail shop?”
- “What do I say in my emails?”
- “How many times do I follow-up without being annoying?”
