I'm so happy to let you know that English Muffin prints are now available at the adorable eco-friendly online children's boutique, Shak-Shuka. This is my second wholesale account and it was such a pleasure to work with them from start to finish. In fact, it's a perfect example of how social media, in this case Twitter, can increase your business' visibility and facilitate relationships and opportunities.
I can't remember how I found Shak-Shuka on Twitter, but something must have piqued my curiosity and I decided to check out their website. I loved the look of the shop and decided to follow them. Joslyn, one half of the Shak-Shuka team, followed me back and sent me a message asking for my wholesale info. Luckily I had created a line sheet (wholesale catalog) a while ago for another potential account and forwarded that to her. From there it was pretty much smooth sailing, she placed her order and I filled it, and followed up with product shots for their website.
I feel pretty lucky that both of my wholesale experiences have been really positive and (to be honest) with very little effort on my part. I have yet to approach any shops on my own and I think that's where it will get a little scary. However, before I do that I am going to do some serious research on developing the wholesale side of my business. Don't worry, I promise to share all the goodies I find.
How about you? Have you had any success with wholesaling your products? Have your experiences been positive? Any tips for me?!
ps. Go visit Shak-Shuka!
