5 Friendly Advice for First Time Jewelry Seller

There is always something thrilling about pursuing your dreams, especially when it has something to do with what you’re really passionate about. Like jewelry! Whether you’re into designing your own necklaces and earrings, or you have an excellent taste in accessories, establishing a business out of your simple hobby can be a great idea. 

Trying your hands in business is an exceptional experience that will teach you a lot of lessons that can help you in your life or in your career. Whether you choose to pursue business fulltime or just wanted to do it alongside your 8-5 job, it’s still a great way to earn money while doing something that you will definitely enjoy.

To help you get the right confidence to succeed in this business, here are some of my personal tips for first time jewelry seller.

1.    Have a good knowledge about jewelry

Get to know the products you’re selling and understand the intricacies of different types of jewelry. Having enough knowledge about jewelry can make you feel more confident when talking with a potential client or when networking with other sellers and suppliers. Get to know about different types of jewelry and read about other important things like how to create an attractive necklace display for your jewelry store.

2.    Be open to new lessons and some criticisms

There will come a time that you think you already know enough. Be weary of this. When you’re just designing jewelry as a hobby, what you already know or how you do things may be enough. But when you’re doing a business, you have to continuously improve your craft and learn to take criticism with a grain of salt.

3.    Focus

Remember the times when you want to do a lot of things at the same time? When you start to establish your business, that thinking may sound ridiculous and impractical. Focus your attention to your goals and plans for your business. You should also consider engaging in different activities that will sharpen your entrepreneurial skills like joining networking events, seminars and trade shows. Success comes to those who do one thing perfectly than those who do a lot of things poorly.

4.    Be realistic but optimistic

When you’re young and energetic, it’s easy to be realistic about a lot of things. This can be a trap for first time jewelry sellers as it often leads to frustration and disappointments. Be realistic when setting your goals but maintain your optimism and enthusiasm when working towards your dreams.

5.    Have a plan

A lot of first time entrepreneurs fail to do this, thinking that they can easily go around the difficulties of establishing a business just by trusting their skills and instinct. Most of the time, it doesn’t work that way. Creating a basic marketing plan helps you analyze things and gives you a better perspective. If possible, create a plan B or plan C so you can be prepared when things don’t go exactly as planned.
