This is a biggie for me! And it’s something I really take pride in! There’s nothing worse than taking a course and feeling like you can’t be heard and get help, and I hope you already know that that’s not my style.

12-week challenge to sign your first 3 stockists

PLUS BONUSES

Pre-recorded buyers Q&As

 

Ever wished you could just pick up the phone and ask a shop owner for their help and feedback and how to sell to them in a way that works for both of you? 

 

As a bonus, you will get access to 3 previous Q&A sessions I've hosted with Lucy from Acorn and Pip and Sarah from Pencil me in.

 

These Q&As will help you see that buyers are just people like you and me and this will help you approach retail buyers confidently.

 

Buyers want to hear from you, and they love good products just as much as you do. They are always on the hunt for their next bestseller, but sometimes it's not enough for me to keep telling you this. You might need to hear it from someone else, so here’s your chance.

Wholesale can be really overwhelming and feel like a rabbit hole, you start to look into one thing and realise fifteen other things you need to learn more about and google can only get you so far.

Over 4-modules I take you through all that you need to know step-by-step so you can get started selling to shops without distraction.

 

Knowledge breeds confidence and when you get clear on your range, pricing and sales material you will feel totally different about approaching shops and potential buyers.

This proven 4- step process has helped hundreds of my clients launch their wholesale, sign their first stockists and make more sales in their businesses, like these previous students:

Since taking Start to Wholesale, I have had 10 new stockists in 5 months, adding £3000 revenue. 

 

It took me 3 weeks to get my first order following the course. 

 

The course has enabled me to change the focus of my business and build collections that will help my business grow.

Nicki - Nicki's Aromatics

Lara - Atelier Chop

Prior to the course I was too scared to reach out to stockists, had no clue about realistic profit margins and had yet to produce a product catalogue.

 

Five weeks on and my outlook on wholesale has completely changed, I have a catalogue and I now know my figures.

 

Therese's course is a mine of information on wholesale and she delivers it all with such an obvious passion (and always with a smile on her face).

 

Start to Wholesale has been the best investment I've made for my business.

The Start to Wholesale Course covered everything I needed to know about working out my pricing, how wholesale works and how I should approach it.

 

Therese was great at explaining everything and the course was broken down into manageable chunks.

 

I have come away from the course feeling much more confident and ready to approach retailers with my work.

 

I would thoroughly recommend this course to anyone who is thinking about going into wholesale with their products.

Since taking Start to wholesale, I have signed 8 new stockists in 6 months, adding over £3k revenue.

 

It took me 2 weeks to get my first order following the course.

 

The course has enabled me to contact potential stockists with confidence and not to take things personally if they don't respond to my first email.

Diane

This course has a paint by numbers feel, so you feel you can follow it easily.

 

During the course I changed my prices, picked my wholesale-ready products and created the documents I need for pitching to potential stockists.

I now feel like wholesale is possible for my business.

Since taking Start To Wholesale I've done my first trade fair, have 12 new stockists and made around £4k from wholesale. 

If you're on the fence about taking this course - do it! It is good value for money and can give you all the info it might take you years to learn on your own.

The information in the course is laid out in 'bite-size' pieces to reduce overwhelm, it definitely made it more manageable.

 

I feel in a much better position to start pitching to wholesale my products

If you're on the fence about taking this course, I'd say it's totally worth the investment.

 

It is much better to invest in the course, and have everything you need to wholesale set up by the time the course finishes, rather than trying to do it slowly and poorly yourself.

Jessica at Bert and Roxy

I would definitely recommend Therese's Wholesale course, I didn't know where or how to begin with contacting retailers or what they would be expecting from me.

 

I now feel confident I know which steps I need to go through and exactly what information they will be looking for.

 

It's come just at the right time and I know I will spend the beginning of 2021 growing my wholesale business. Thanks so much Therese!

Tina - All Paper Everything

Therese's course was a great start to getting my wholesale up and running.

 

I'm more confident with how to price my products and now have a much clearer picture of what stockists expect from a supplier.

 

The course is very thorough and Therese's patience and expertise shine through all of her material and live sessions. Thanks for getting me started.

You could continue to move wholesale down your to-do list or sign up for all the wholesale marketplaces and hope you will make some money when you get an order, but …

…without getting clear on your numbers and feeling confident in your pricing, you risk working really hard for minimal reward.

You could continue to work on your line sheet or catalogue, but …

…it will not work for you unless you share it with someone.

You could continue to follow lots of shops on social media in the hopes that they will come to you.

​However, if you don't ever reach out to someone, you are putting the success of your business in someone else's hands. It's a lot to expect from a retail buyer that doesn't even know about you and what you have to offer.

Hi, I'm Therese!

I was tired of speaking to business owners who had spent thousands of ££££ to exhibit at trade shows and not make the most of the opportunity. So, I started this business to help you avoid making the same mistakes.

I love helping business owners like you to gain confidence and grow your business.

 

 I’ve spent my career in sales (13+ years). I didn’t set out to be in sales and as an introvert, I had to find my own way of selling and now I help business owners do the same. 

I’m super passionate about helping you grow your business and for the last 3 years, I’ve helped over hundreds of businesses do just that.

I can't wait to celebrate your wins with you!

How do I know if this course is for me?

It’s the perfect fit for you if:

 

  • You have a product-based business and want to learn about selling to shops.

 

  • You haven’t done any wholesale or just a little bit and want to make it a priority for your business.

 

  • You feel overwhelmed each time someone gets in touch about stocking your products.

 

  • You are serious about starting to sell shops instead of dreaming about it.

  • You want to stop moving it down your to-do list.

 

  • Want to feel more confident with your wholesale.

It’s not for you if:

 

  • You already have an established wholesale business, then 1:1 or my sales course will be a better fit.

 

  • You don’t want to sell to shops.

 

  • You don’t want to make an effort to get your products into shops.

  • You are not ready to invest some time into growing a new sales channel for your business.

  • You're not ready to get out of your comfort zone to launch your wholesale. This is going to require a little bit of flexing your courage muscle - you've got this. 

Small Business Collaborative14.jpg

The course has been so helpful in understanding the ins and outs of getting into wholesale, so much insider information and the resources are very helpful too! 

 

The course also made me rethink where my business sits in the market which is great as this has helped me with pricing my products and has also given me a better idea of which retailers to approach. 

 

Definitely feeling much more confident and prepared to reply and reach out to retailers now!
