Welcome! I’m Rena Klingenberg – jewelry artist and founder of Jewelry Making Journal.
The Christmas holiday season is usually the busiest shopping time of the year.
And there are loads of opportunities for selling handmade jewelry to people who are looking for holiday gifts for their loved ones.
But it’s easy to miss out on these opportunities if you’re not prepared to make the most of them.
This 72-page “Sell More Jewelry This Holiday Season” guide will help you make the most of your opportunities to connect holiday shoppers with your jewelry.
This book is for you if . . .
- you’re not selling as much jewelry during the holiday season as you’d like to.
- you’re new to selling your jewelry.
(However, if you’re already doing well with your jewelry,
you don’t need this guide because you’re probably
already doing most of the things in it!)
Why You Need to
Start Getting Your Jewelry Business
Although many people purchase their Christmas gifts throughout the year, the majority of holiday shopping takes place from September 1, all the way through December 25.
Recently I heard these statistics:
- About one-third of holiday shoppers begin their shopping in September.
- However, another one-third of holiday shoppers don’t even START shopping till the last 10 days before Christmas!
- And regardless of when they start their shopping, by December 15 about 85% of holiday shoppers are still actively looking to purchase at least one gift.
So being prepared for
early-bird shoppers in September
can be just as valuable as being ready for
last-minute shoppers right before Christmas.
9 Reasons Why Many Jewelry Artists
Don’t Sell Much to Holiday Shoppers:
- They don’t know what to prepare for the holiday season before it arrives.
- They don’t build customer email and / or snail-mail lists.
- They don’t plan out their promotions and marketing messages ahead of time.
- They don’t position their jewelry as giftable items.
- They position their jewelry only as discounted, low-priced items for the entire holiday season.
- They don’t have their online presence set up for the needs and mindset of holiday shoppers.
- They’re not sure what motivates customers during the holiday shopping season.
- They think they have to stick to mainstream sales venues like craft shows and Etsy.
- They overlook ways to make easy sales.
This guide is designed to help you
avoid these pitfalls,
and be ready to sell more jewelry than ever
this holiday season.
