Mates rates, sales to get a sale…

Is it ever a good idea to offer a discount or have a sale?

If everyone else is doing it, should you also be doing it? When is the right time to offer a discount? What’s the actual purpose of running a sale? Should you participate in sales events like Black Friday or the Boxing Day Sales?

Listen in on our new episode because this might be what you need to hear to help you decide whether you should also participate in the next big sale event in your area.

We hope you enjoy this episode – when you’re done listening, make sure to come and let us know what you thought in our free Facebook group.

These events will be an opportunity to work closely with the 3 of us, in a small group setting. Think super actionable, “let-s-get-it-done-together-right-now” events. BUT… We need your help! We need you to help us tailor this event to what YOU really need to work on in your handmade business + you’ll get to help us pick which cities we should travel to!
