Selling jewelry in catalogs can be a fun and easy way to make money because the merchandise sells itself. You only have to show people the catalogs to pique their interest in buying. There a variety of jewelry catalog businesses out there that are constantly looking for sales reps. Jewelry companies such as Avon, Lia Sophia, AuraStella and Little Black Dress seek entrepreneurs to sell their merchandise to the public. You do not have to be a seasoned salesperson to succeed in selling jewelry from catalogs. You only need a way to expose your product to potential customers.
Receive permission from your employer to display the catalog in the break room. The advantage of selling from catalogs is that the merchandise sells itself. People can browse through the catalog at their leisure and decide whether or not they want to buy something. People love to flip through magazines as they eat lunch and are more than likely to pick up the catalog if it's laying on the table in front of them.
Get samples of some of the jewelry and have a jewelry party for friends. This is a good way to sell merchandise in a fun, stress-free environment. No one feels any pressure to buy because the selling takes place in a social situation. Serve yummy snacks and give away door prizes.
Create fliers advertising your jewelry. Place the fliers at places such as community centers and laundromats. If your public library has an information board, ask permission to tack the flier there. Brainstorm other ideas of where to place your advertisements. Make sure your flier contains your contact information.
Set up a flea market booth and have customers place orders for jewelry using the catalog. Thousands of people go through flea markets each weekend, so it's a great place to sell merchandise.
Ask a friend to help you sell from the catalog by giving her a copy to show co-workers and friends. Share any resulting profits with your friend.
Ask your doctor's office if you can leave a copy of your jewelry catalog in the waiting room. Everybody spends a lot of time in doctor's office waiting rooms. They might be more likely to pick up the catalog and take it home with them. Hopefully, they will purchase something as well. Make sure your contact information is included with the catalog. You may want to print up some simple business cards you can staple to each catalog.
