Are you selling wholesale, 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 want to start selling wholesale. 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

Thanks for the great tips Andreea. I’ve only just started using Yelp to help with researching retailers and it’s a great resource.
That’s great to hear!!!!
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.

Thanks Andrea. Very helpful. I am about ready to launch out via wholesale
