Today we’re at Paper Camp learning all the ins and outs of selling wholesale and exhibiting at wholesale shows. If you weren’t able to join us, fear not!  There are still two more ways you can learn with us.  Our next session of Paper Camp is coming up in Los Angeles on February 26 and 27, 2016.  Please stop by the registration page for special early-bird offers and more.

In addition, we’re also so excited to announce a new way of learning here in the TSBC community: the Paper Camp E-Course!

TSBC Paper Camp E-Course

This fall we’re launching a new format for our popular Paper Camp to allow more of you to join in the fun.

Why is this so important?  

For an average small business it costs $7,000 to $10,000 to exhibit at a large stationery show like NSS or NY Now.  Let’s say that again: $7,000 to $10,000.  Wow!  With that kind of investment on the line, it’s important to make sure this is the right next step for your business.  Paper Camp will help you determine your next steps, save you money and give you a supportive community to lean on year-round.

This 7 week e-course will explain how to create, refine and launch a wholesale program and take it to market.  We’ll dive deep into strategies for creating your product, building effective sales tools, reaching the right customers, and strengthening relationships with buyers, media, and sales reps to grow your business.

You’ll get actionable items to hit the ground running, and the online course will give you flexibility to learn at home in your pjs. As with any TSBC course, you’ll also be invited to join our alumni community, which is an invaluable resource on its own.

The Paper Camp E-Course is right for you if you want to:

  • Explore new revenue streams for your business.
  • Expand your line to include more product categories.
  • Sell your products to retail stores near and far.
  • Grow your sales team & build professional sales tools.
  • Discover new vendors and resources to grow your business.
  • Exhibit at shows like National Stationery Show or NY Now.
  • Be a member of a supportive community of industry pros.

One of the best parts is that time and again we get feedback that industry experts prefer to work with TSBC alumni because of their levels of preparation and professionalism.  When you join the Paper Camp E-Course, it gives you a leg up in this marketplace.

Sounds pretty amazing, right?  Within the E-Course we’ll be releasing fresh video content each week for 7 weeks.  You’ll have time to digest and process the materials before our live coaching call each Wednesday with TSBC founder, Katie Hunt.  We’ll also have ongoing discussions within the class forum.  And when you sign up for the E-Course you’ll get tons of bonuses, like resource guides, freebies, and discounts to help your business thrive.

Registration is now open and classes run from October 2 through November 20, so mark your calendars!  Early bird registration ends on September 23 and spots are limited, so sign up now to reserve your space.  We can’t wait to have you join our TSBC community!
