Wholesale can take your business to the next level; it’s terrific marketing, increases brand credibility, can generate faster revenue – and it’s such a buzz to see your product in shops!

But it can also seem overwhelming, and if you’re not familiar with the terminology or how pricing for wholesale works – or maybe put off by the cost of trade fairs – you could be missing out on a great opportunity to grow your business, at home and abroad.

Sophie Dias has been running her textile business for a number of years, with wholesale being a significant part of her income. She also ran an online wholesale marketplace for a while, so has in-depth knowledge of how to make wholesale work for your brand.

This online workshop aired live on 15th July 2020. You are purchasing a recording of this session. It includes a downloadable PDF and you have lifetime access to the workshop.

The Pinterest creative workshop was amazing. For someone with pretty much zero experience of using Pinterest effectively for business, I came away with an abundance of knowledge and so excited to implement that knowledge. Cannot wait for the next creative workshop!
