THREE USEFUL TIPS for SELLING the FIBRE COMPANY YARNS:
• KNIT / CROCHET A SAMPLE: Samples are incredible tools for selling yarn - they give your customers project ideas, give you or your employees experience working with the yarn, and fill your shop with beautiful items.
• HOST A YARN TASTING: Are you convinced The Fibre Company yarns are amazing to knit and wear but want to give your customers that final push? Why not host a yarn tasting? Giving your customers the opportunity to try out each yarn in a “test-run” will give them the confidence they need to dive head-first into a project.
• ORGANIZE A KNIT-A-LONG: Although knitting can be a solitary activity, knitters are social people - as evidenced by the overwhelming popularity of Ravelry and the proliferation of knitters on social media sites such as
Instagram, Twitter, Facebook and Pinterest. By organizing and hosting a knit-a-long at your shop, you’re encouraging customers to repeatedly come into your shop. Your expertise will guide them in their knitting, ensuring a successful finished project and guarantee they come back for more!
