Ramp Up Your Holiday Sales Intensive

::Attention Jewelry Designers::

Want to harness the power of the holiday season
and boost your 2013 jewelry sales above and
beyond your most ambitious sales goals!?

(we are going to show you how!)

F&TA:: Ramp Up Your Holiday Sales Intensive

We have created a 4 month intensive specifically designed for jewelry designers who are ready to blow their holiday sales out of the water! Students will collaborate with a group of like-minded designers and coaches as they begin to manifest their DREAM sales goals and learn how to make the most of the hottest sales quarter of the year… no matter their business model!

Does this sound like you?

You are ready to have YOUR best Holiday Season to date, but…

  • Despite your big sales goals for the Holiday season, you fail to plan in advance. You usually end up scrambling at the last minute.
  • You aren’t hitting or exceeding your sales numbers from 2012. In fact, you aren’t even sure what your sales were last holiday season.
  • You haven’t mapped out your holiday sales plan because you’re overwhelmed or you’d rather just wing it! And Tracking? What’s that?
  • Staying accountable for the sales in your business terrifies you because you are a designer/maker at heart. Shouldn’t I just hire someone to do it for me?
  • You are spending more time making your jewelry and dealing with the day to day minutia in your business rather than revenue generating activities (AKA sales).
  • You have difficulty organizing and timing your marketing, sales, and promotion plan for maximum impact.
  • You feel isolated and aren’t being held accountable for hitting and exceeding your sales goals.

If you are squirming at your jewelry bench or re-sorting your
bead boxes because this is you, then perk up sister (or brother), because
the Ramp Up Your Holiday Sales INTENSIVE is for you!

By the end of this intensive you will have::

Kicked your 2012 Holiday Season sales in the pants and experienced what it’s like to reap the financial benefits of your efforts.

For years you have been entering the holiday season without a plan. Or maybe you have a plan but you aren’t really staying on track with it. Sometimes your sales are great and other times, well, you just miss the mark. Unfortunately, if you aren’t on top of your sales and marketing, especially at this time of year, your company will feel the financial burden. Holiday Sales in most jewelry businesses account for over 50% of the yearly revenue. If you are missing the mark, well, it’s time to make a change. Having an overall plan, taking action, staying accountable and tracking your progress is the key to meeting or exceeding your sales revenue.

Developed a week by week sales and marketing plan to guide you through your most successful Holiday Season to date.

Plans shplans! Who needs ‘em? Successful jewelry designers do!!! Robin will be guiding you through her proven techniques for planning that has helped many a jewelry company flourish and thrive. Tracy will be teaching you the tips she used to turn her fledgling jewelry business into a successful custom design business where she now has so much business she has even had to turn away clients. Together, as a team, we’ll be guiding you week by week and keeping you on track with your sales and helping you create compelling marketing strategies to attract your ideal clients.

Learned how to laser focus on the activities that will generate the most revenue for your business.

When you aren’t taking action, there is no way to build momentum! We’ll be teaching you some of our techniques for getting things done and staying focused on what NEEDS to happen rather than what distracts you from staying focused. The result? Daily accountability for taking action towards your goals PLUS more revenue in your business (can you say bigger payday??).

Felt supported and been held accountable for reaching or surpassing your “BIG” sales goals.

Have you ever felt isolated and like you have no one to talk to about your business? Your friends have no clue what it’s like to be floating out there alone and no one can really empathize with your struggles. Don’t fret! You’ll be surrounded by not only Tracy & Robin, but lots of amazing designers who are there to support you and hold you accountable for success. You don’t have to be alone in the process anymore!

Developed a solid, kick-ass Sales Roadmap for 2014 (can you say, blow my 2013 sales out of the water?).

HAVE YOU EVER ended the year feeling a little burned out and wanting to push the coming year to the wayside? Being prepared for the year ahead is one of the most important strategies successful jewelry business owners can do. At the end of the intensive, we wrap up with a 2014 goal setting workshop to help you map out the year ahead and beat the awesome sales you JUST had!

Plus…

Insider access to interviews and Q&A’s with industry experts who will share their tips of success!

We understand the power and believe in mentorship and learning from people who have already been there. Throughout this intensive, we’ll have insider guests (can you say famous, successful designers, buyers and reps) talking about their tips for success. You'll learn what they did to get to where they are now, plus insider nuggets of advice and insight.

Here’s why you’ll this Intensive:

In their collective 40 years in business, Tracy & Robin have really seen and experienced everything.

Get ready to learn the secrets that Tracy has used to reclaim herself from jewelry business failure to a highly successful jewelry brand with many loyal clients who consistently spend a lot of cash!

You will also have access to the wealth of wisdom that Robin amassed from her time as the Director of Sales for an uber successful jewelry brand.

We’ve created a surefire framework that will help you create your holiday sales roadmap, hold you accountable, and provide you with the support you need to make sure you are getting your S#!T done. Plus, the easy to access format will be full of reminders and topics for you to focus on several times during the week, so when you get behind, you know we’ll be there getting you back on track and to celebrate with you when you are kicking Bootay!

Since I started F&TA I have definitely seen a major growth in my business. In 2012 my business grew about 25%. I started working with Tracy & Robin right before the 2012 holidays and I saw such a spike in December it was unbelievable!

Because of the amazing knowledge, support and community I have received from F&TA, I decided to continue working with Tracy & Robin and I am so glad I have. I have seen a 15% increase in sales this year and can not wait to see what happens as we approach the 2013 holidays!

Most of the jewelry artists I know are in the dark with the business side of things. Since I started working with Tracy & Robin, I have a much clearer picture of the marketplace and the business behind my art. More importantly, I am much more focused, organized, determined and psyched!

How else is this intensive going to change your life?

Our weekly lessons are built to keep you on track and get you thinking outside of the (jewelry) box. It’s also built to reduce the overwhelm that often comes if you are prepared for the holiday season. Our goal is to help you::

  • Feel super excited about your business and sales so your clients can actually see and feel your enthusiasm in every way they interact with you (in person, on the phone, via email, through your marketing, etc.).

  • Have so many inspired ideas of where to find sales opportunities and rocking each one of them.
  • Get you focused on the sales opportunities that will have the highest impact and returns so that your precious time is maximized.

More From F&TA Students

Working with Tracy & Robin has been amazing! I am now working on my jewelry business full time! They have helped me define my goals, make plans to achieve those goals, and then actually take the action and be accountable. This goal setting and attaining process has helped me financially by producing direct results in sales and understanding what my sales needs are.Sarah Swift

Being part of the F&TA community has helped me to learn so much about the business side of the wholesale and retail jewelry worlds. I now have confidence that I am doing the right thing professionally when dealing with potential buyers and I feel that my business is well positioned now to make great leaps forward.I recently cultivated a relationship with a major museum store jewelry buyer who has placed his first order with me for the Renwick Gallery in Washington DC and he promises to include my jewelry in additional venues. Also, I am now involved with Uncommon Goods website and hopefully their catalog as well. I feel that these two opportunities, in particular, have major implications for future growth for Garden of Silver!

Don't just take it from us…

I am so grateful that I found you guys! Being involved in a supportive group of like-minded designers is HUGE since I've been trying to find something like this for years. Since I have taken your program, I am more proactive about trying projects that I have put off for years. Pricing has always been a struggle for me! Even though I know I need to increase my prices, I am taking steps to make that happen. I feel more confident and organized and I'm NOW taking my business more seriously. I am so excited for Volume 2!!

During the course, I gained a lot of clarity around what I really wanted for my business and changed the way I looked at my business on every front. My vision of my brand shifted from a wholesale model to a custom model and I have seen immediate shift! January is usually such a slow month for me and because of what I have learned, I landed three custom clients for wedding sets this month! This is the first business class that I have taken that has been led by jewelry industry vets and the information is invaluable for jewelry designers. Tracy & Robin bring so much industry specific information and supplement what they know by bringing other industry experts to create incredible value. They truly practice what they preach.
Meagan Reelitz
Tracy & Robin have both been so open and honest which can be a challenge in the jewelry industry.Their wealth of knowledge and willingness to share is exactly what any designer who is starting out or feels stuck in their business needs. Even though the course content is incredible, the bonuses ALONE are amazing. I wish I had all of these tools right when I started my business. Thank you Tracy & Robin!
