What is a
Jewelry Shopping Service?

copyright by Rena Klingenberg

I first stumbled onto the "jewelry shopping service" approach to marketing my handcrafted jewelry a few years ago.

I couldn't believe I'd never heard anyone talk about this before - because it's a wide-open field with TONS of opportunities to sell your jewelry. It's the main way I sell my jewelry now. Personal shopping services are a growing trend in all kinds of market niches.

Typically a personal shopper helps clients determine what they should buy, locates the best deal on an intended purchase, or finds the perfect gifts for customers to give. Personal shoppers tend to specialize in a particular area of expertise, where they know a certain market and its suppliers inside and out.

Above all, personal shopping is a service business, and as people get busier and shopping options get more overwhelming, there's an increasing demand for specialized personal shopping service businesses of various types.


What if you operated your handcrafted jewelry business like a personal shopping service?

There are absolutely immense opportunities for jewelry artists to sell their work this way, as you'll see in "Secrets of a Handcrafted Jewelry Shopping Service".

A jewelry shopping service could easily be your entire jewelry business, or just one income stream of it.

It's a very flexible way to sell your jewelry, and I've found that it's very easy to fit it in around all the other things going on in your life.


Why It's Such a Profitable Way to Sell Your Jewelry

By operating as a shopping service, you'll be selling directly to your clients at full retail prices, so you won't be paying any booth fees, shop commissions, party hostess incentives, wholesale discounts, etc.

In fact, one of the best things about it is that you have very few sales-related expenses, because there's no “middleman”. Nearly 100% of the proceeds go directly to your business.

And what's more, many of your clients will be fairly big spenders. They'll shop from you over and over again because they love your customized products, personal service, and the way you take their problems out of their hands – and they're willing to pay quite well for it.

The book also has a chapter describing a clever strategy that will increase your profits even more; I give an example of this strategy from my own business, and explain why it's so profitable.


Everything You Need to Know to
Start Your Own Jewelry Shopping Service

In this ebook I share my entire successful business model with you. It's easy to do, and it really works. I've tested and refined my jewelry shopping service strategies, and I describe them in detail in this step-by-step guide.

I also share dozens of real-life examples of successful products, services, marketing methods, and stories from my own shopping service, to help you get started.

You don't have to re-invent the wheel and go through the same learning curve I did to figure out what really works (and what doesn't!). It's all in the book. :o)
