Hello again! Thank you so much for the warm welcome. We were absolutely blown away by the kind responses we got to the first email. We want to apologize in advance for sending so many emails in a row. Our plan is to send a monthly newsletter, but as we get up and running, there are a few time-sensitive things that must be communicated!
The first thing we want to address is that we are working on an FAQ page for wholesalers on our website. There were a few questions in regards to the policy sheet that came up multiple times, which just goes to show that there will always be room for improvement no matter how many people you have proof your documents before they go out. We anticipate that this will be up in about a week. In the meantime, if you have any questions or concerns, please do contact us!
The second item on the agenda is our August Spinzilla fiber pack!
For those of you who may not be familiar, Louet did value-priced fiber packs in the months leading up to Spinzilla (2-8 October 2017) to encourage consumers to build their stash in anticipation of the big event. We are continuing this model with a few tweaks.
This month's pack will contain:
- One pound of light grey Romney sliver
- One half pound of dyed black Merino top (22 micron)
- One half pound of Tencel top
- One half pound of Northern Lights dyed wool top (assorted colors)
We encourage you to contact your spinners and make them aware of the fiber packs, potentially as a product you could special order for them. Also bear in mind that we can drop ship for you for a fee of $5 per box. These fiber packs will also be listed for sale on our website. Because there are discounts built into both the wholesale and retail costs, we are unable to offer profit-sharing on fiber pack sales. However, any mentions of the fiber pack on social media will not link directly to the product page, but rather to the list of retailers (which we will be updating today with the stores who have returned their information sheets).
Again, we'd like to apologize (we're doing a lot of that today...) for not getting you info on this sooner. Our goal is to send our monthly email mid-month with information about products and promotions that will go live at the beginning of next month. That gives you time to plan and order so you have stock on hand when the social media push starts. To that end, watch your inboxes mid-August for the announcement about our September fiber pack.
Regardless of whether your store participates in Spinzilla, these bundles offer such a great value to your customers. We hope they are very successful for you.
As always, if you have any suggestions or recommendations (not just about fiber packs - about anything!), we would love to hear from you. Let us know what you'd like to see us stock. Tell us what you're struggling with so we can help. We are here to serve you.
Thank you again for your enthusiasm and support. We are just thrilled to be on this adventure with you.
