Five Selling Options
As a Rada Cutlery Reseller, you can choose any or all of the five selling options:
Many Resellers choose to set up at events such as fairs, community celebrations, bazaars, shows, flea markets or farmers markets – basically any venue that attracts enough people to justify the time and expense to set up a display to sell Rada Cutlery. Sometimes these events are once a year and sometimes they may be once a week or month. You will find that people recognize Rada Cutlery and people who own Rada knives will be telling complete strangers how great they are!
Owner-operated stores of all types set up Rada Cutlery displays for their customers. Rada Cutlery products are a wonderful complement for almost any type of retail store such as gift shops, hardware stores, general stores, bakeries/cafes as well as local grocery stores. Other shops selling Rada knives include flower shops, bridal shops, and bait & tackle – basically any store whose customers appreciate high quality Made in the USA products at a remarkable value.
Catalog & Home Sales
There is a long tradition of enterprising individuals who sell Rada Cutlery to people in their communities via friends, family, acquaintances and word of mouth. Sometimes they only take orders and other times they will have a display set up in their home and keep some inventory of best sellers. Rada Mfg. Co.’s minimum order of only $75 makes this type of business feasible. Some of these folks also do some event sales and/or some home parties.
The Rada Home Party system was developed to give Resellers another opportunity to sell Rada Cutlery products. The system differs from most home party programs as there are no quotas, pressure to recruit or large buy-in for a sample kit. Simply purchase the forms you need ($10 will get you started) plus samples to use and show during the party.
The power of home parties is that your host helps you gather potential customers and earns free products based on the party sales. More information is available at www.RadaHomeParties.com or in the Reselling Made EASY with Rada Mfg. Co. guide.
Common Selling Materials used by Home Party Resellers: Catalogs, Home Party Order Takers, Invitations, Recipe Selection Guide, Host Order Summary, Demonstrator Case, Plastic Bags, Rada T-Shirts, Table Runner, Price Cards, and Car Magnet.
Many products are being sold via various platforms on the internet and Rada Cutlery is no exception. Rada Mfg. Co. supports internet sellers with quality products and service but does not drop ship to your customers.
