Stencils & Toppers: Adding a Custom Touch to your Sweets Business

Regular price $75.00

"Upselling is a sales technique where a seller induces the customer to purchase more expensive items, upgrades or other add-ons in an attempt to make a more profitable sale. While it usually involves marketing more profitable services or products, it can be something as simple as exposing the customer to other options that were perhaps not considered."

There are a ton of options that bakers, cakers and sweet makers can use to upsell to their customers. Adding on items such as custom toppers, banners, and invitations are just a few ways that you can increase your sales per each customer transaction.

In this seminar, you will hear from Nicole Silva, a Georgia based store-front owner who is able to increase her sales by adding on custom items such as toppers that she produces using a Silhouette Cameo. Learn about upselling and other time saving tips that Nicole is able to use in her business thanks to her investment in her personal cutting machine.

Thinking of buying your own Silhoutte or own the machine and don't know how to use it?
Register for Nicole's Saturday hands-on class where you will learn to Make Cake & Cookie Stencils Using the Sihoutte Cameo.
