how to find retail stores to sell your products toDo you want to sell your products to retail stores but are not sure how to find relevant stores? In today’s podcast I’m going back to the ASK ANDREEA series where I answer a question from one of you. Here’s today’s question:

“I currently have my product in one store and would like to have access to more. I am just not sure what stores to target. My products as I label them are gifts for tween girls and beauty products. How would you suggest choosing stores to pitch my product to? Thanks!” – Araina

Thank you sooo much for answering my question.This is information is worth a million bucks to me! Having someone break down in steps how to help grow my business is more than I could ever hope for! I have written a page full of notes to start the process. It feels great to get professional advice for your business,it’s priceless!! And thanks for pronouncing my name correctly!:)

Hi Andrea, Thanks for this great information. I am finding it hard to get a response from retailers :( I have emailed them a professional, short yet effective email introducing myself and my product and then I follow up a week later with another email and they don’t reply :( Any advice would help.
