San Francisco, CA, April 21, 2017 (Newswire.com) - CreativeLive, an online education startup targeted toward aspiring creatives, has recently announced a new weeklong bootcamp offering a complete guide to developing a wholesale business. The Wholesale Business for Crafters bootcamp, being livestreamed for free on CreativeLive on April 24-28, will include courses such as ‘A Beginner’s Guide to Wholesale’ and ‘Sell Your Product to Retailers.’ The purpose of the bootcamp is to help crafters better understand how to set prices, find the right sales tools, build a mailing list, and create an effective marketing plan.
Jim Catechi, Online Content Producer at CreativeLive, states, “Having an immersive weeklong bootcamp with respected industry instructors Megan Auman and Katie Hunt will provide the accessibility and immersive education that our audience needs to grow a successful craft business.”

“Taking this workshop, and making the leap to wholesale, is a valuable step for any handmade business. Wholesale lends credibility and consistency to a business, and is a very real path to growth,” states CreativeLive instructor Megan Auman.
“I built my CreativeLive classes to provide makers with concrete solutions and actionable advice so that they feel confident and empowered when launching or refining their wholesale program. These classes are a great starting point for anyone new to wholesale or looking to rework their catalog, work with sales reps or expand their wholesale marketing efforts. In this bootcamp, please will come with questions, leave with answers," said CreativeLive instructor Katie Hunt.
