I know that Cutting for Business readers are busy people. Many of you are moms, spouses, some work a full time 9-5 job, while others care for aging relatives. Today, I’m going to present an easy method to build up your ready to ship stock. The best thing about this method is that it works whether you are prepping for a craft show or just wanting to build up ready to ship inventory.
Sell One, Stock One Method
My method for building up stock is called Sell One, Stock One. If you’ve never heard of it before, don’t worry – I made it up (kind of like the product based business cards). The basic premise is that you carry on with your business as usual. Each time you get an order, make two of the product. If the product is custom, make a generic version if possible. Then, you ship one to your customer and set the other one aside to sell at a later time. Easy as that! Before you know it, your stockpile of ready to ship products or inventory for your next craft fair is overflowing.
This method is so simple – don’t forget to share this post with a friend:
