Hey Profiteer!
In this episode, I'm diving into some super exciting strategies to help you secure repeat sales by creating custom dog treats for local businesses. I'll be sharing real-life examples from my own experience, including treats I've designed for realtors, grocery stores, marijuana shops, coffee shops, and more.
We often think we can only sell to pet-specific businesses, but it's time to think outside the box! I'll show you how to tailor your treats to reflect a business’s brand and walk you through detailed steps to identify potential clients, pitch your products, and close those sales.
I want to help you eliminate the overwhelm and frustration that can keep you stuck. Let's create a clear path for you to generate consistent income while helping others with your amazing treats.
I hope this helps you!
