Hi Ladies! I’m in your Pros club and have some questions. Do you usually make one of a kind wreaths to sell on your website, or do you have more than one kind of wreath that you continue to make ongoing, and keep a “recipe” for like the eucalyptus wreath? Just wondered how wreathmakers do this. Also when shipping multiple wreaths to one address how do you do that – one per box? Also I don’t understand shipping: How to figure shipping costs going to different states and around the world. Do you have a detailed tutorial on this? I haven’t viewed everything on your website yet – working my way through.
We do sell some one of a kind wreaths, but if we know that we can easily get the supplies to replicate, we will sell multiples of a wreath design. We always keep track of all of the materials and supplies needed to make it.
Hi Ladies. Please ignore my husband’s goofy photo which comes up on my comments. I have no idea why it does or how it got there. Another request: If you haven’t done this already, do you show a tour of your workshop in how you organize and store your supplies, as well as detailing how your typical day goes as full-time retail crafters – what you do when/some kind of schedule? I have a tiny craft room, and may have to move into the garage, and I want to make and sell wreaths and floral arrangements full-time, but find it difficult when working 3-4 days a week with household responsibilities, errands, etc.
Also, I read the ETSY for dummies. Big time TMI. It was so overwhelming that by the time I got into another chapter, I’d forgotten the prior info. Seems very difficult to me and my husband. Will probably hire someone to get it up and running, along with my website. Perhaps, you both are way more tech savvy.
Hey Laura! Etsy is a great place to sell you wreaths, but you are right, it can seem a bit overwhelming at first, but it is actually not hard at all to start an Etsy shop, much easier than it seems. You don’t need to hire anyone to do it for you, you can definitely do it yourself. I have a few tutorials in our Design With The Pros club and I will tag you in them so that you can watch. If you have any questions just let me know. It’s best to email me at firstname.lastname@example.org or post in the private facebook group. I see those questions and can respond the quickest that way. Have a great night!
I absolutely love your website and tutorials, which is easy to view and attractive! Since I’m a sub teacher I never know when I will be home to view your Facebook lives, but will watch the video later. Do want to be on live to ask questions tho.
I would prefer to sell only on my website. How did you make that change? Did you have to sell on ETSY to gain customers first and then switch over to only selling on your website? How do you drive traffic to your site – just through all the social medias?
When you do shipping on your website, do you figure it out after someone places and order and then you email them the final total before shipping? I can’t figure out any other way to do it since USPS upped the cost tremendously. Youtube wreathers are recommending up the cost of the wreath to allow for shipping ($20-30) and tacking on a shipping cost of $18-20, but still you won’t know exactly if it will cover the costs, and can lose money. PLEASE ADVISE.
Have a wonderful week ahead. You are a blessing to me and many others!
Hey Laura! You don’t have to be on live to ask questions, you can ask at any time. We get notifications when you ask in the private Facebook group, and you can always email us too if you want to. We are always here to help!
