What worked in 2016 will not work today. Wholesale sourcing has changed a lot in the last year. So if you are thinking about moving into wholesale what skills will you need? How much time? How much will you need to spend?
I am going to go over a mini training on who is a good fit for wholesale and what are the main considerations you need to think about before investing time and money into switching models.
Bonus Task- Set Up Your Email
We are going to teach you how to call and follow up with email during this training. Having a professional email really makes a huge difference in the number of responses you will get from companies.
Think about it, if you got a business email from CrayCrayLady72@gmail.com would you respond?
If you got an email and it said that the company was in the tech space and their email was firstname.lastname@example.org would you respond?
Creating a business email is not nearly as hard as it sounds. I am going to give you two options here:
1. BEST- Set up a custom domain email account
2. Set up a professional looking email with GMail for now.
When picking an email account you want something professional, easy to spell, and don’t get too clever. If you pick 4ecommerz.co as your domain you will have to say “four, the number four, e-c-o-m-m-e-r-z.co and that is .co and not .com” on every voicemail. Who wants that?
CUSTOM DOMAIN EMAIL
I have a video (below) on how to buy a domain and set it up on Godaddy. This takes less than 20 minutes.
If you are tech savvy use this PDF to purchase a domain and set up it up with Google. This would have you using Google GSuites to set up your email (now $6 per address per month)
You can use this PDF https://www.dropbox.com/…/Setting%20Up%20Google%20G%20Suite…
Follow instructions here and set up a Gmail account. Here are some example email@example.com, firstname.lastname@example.org, email@example.com, firstname.lastname@example.org
If you are really stuck, we can do this for you. I do have to charge as it takes us a bit of time to do this. Email email@example.com and we will send you an invoice. While you are waiting, purchase the domain on GoDaddy so we can start immediately.
