You thought you knew how pots looked in the sunlight, how they moved in day time, in spring times, until you sold pottery in a seasonal market's springtime.
The rest of the year is real. You either have it or you don't. But in Spring, you're king, or a lady king, and the season is prime for the taking.
All you have to do is have pots and it seems like everyone wants to give you a million dollars.
Do you want a million dollars? Here's what you do:
Purchase ceramic planters from me wholesale and resale them immediately for considerable profit. Naturally, a wholesale license is needed for this, and if you're not interested in getting one, I sell all the plants and pottery retail as well.
What isn’t needed, this time of year at least, is much skill at all, because Spring sells these things all by itself.
$1 on small terracotta. $20 on larger, unloved planters. $35 on 18" clay. $90 after discounts on 20" glazed or decorative ceramics.
Low, low prices. Located north of Denver, off Highway 36 and the Pecos exit, on the left, with the pots.
Take the time to consider whether you're worth one million dollars, because we'll make it together, or you can just buy my pottery.
Ask about discounts, going into the pottery business, and the shop address at:
<< 909 >> << 744 >> << 7708 >>
- or -
I'm open from 1030 to 530 on the weekends only, but I'll be open daily soon enough.
Ok. You're thinking about that million dollars, but I have obligations to jargon, pottery, so I will or will not be able to separate the two from this point forward:
Potrepreneurs Simple Steps for Making Millions / Pottery Jargon
1.) So you want to start a garden business, but you have no access to terracotta, and you live in Erie, but you just love plants so much. Step one is to align yourself with a ceramic samurai like myself for a steady supply of inventory and get fishing for plant patrons like a seasoned gardener.
2.) The formula for selling plants and porcelain pots is simple: offer Superior pricing, selection, and service, from a convenient location like Thornton, with an emphasis on substance, value, and quality over jargon, pottery.
3.) Don’t lose sight of the fact that you’re never going to be a Pottery Barn, but even they need a wholesale license to buy and sell philodendron, so apply for a wholesale licesale / sale tax license / resale license with the State of Colorado Department of Revenue.
4.) To apply for a sales tax license, you’ll need to know where you’re going to be conducting your businesses. You might only want to sell MCM stoneware online, or perhaps you see yourself as a holder of succulents in Arvada, Aurora, Westminster, or even just red clay in Fort Collins, Louisville or Littleton. I would advocate doing business out of your residence or a quickly accessed point of sale. I don’t live at my shop, and it causes me to miss out on sales from time to time. Wherever you choose to cement yourself, customers are willing to drive from all over Denver, so choosing a location that’s quick and easy to drive to will give you a leg up for years to come.
5.) After you’ve chosen your location and applied for your resale license, it’s time to start considering your inventory mix. It doesn’t matter if you’re 99% cacti and 1% plastic planters, or a 50% monstera greenhouse with 50% Mexican talavera, there’s exponential value beyond the sum of the parts in selling both plants and planters from the same location. Being a one-stop shop with flexible estate sale ish prices keeps customers from hiking through any other Broomfield, Wheat Ridge, Boulder, Lakewood, Northglenn, and Federal Heights plant shop if they can secure a plant stand for a pot and a succulent at your garage sale (presuming you operate from your garage, which isn’t a bad idea, except in the winter, if there’s plants).
6.) After you've selected Loveland to yard sale pottery and ceramics, or Longmont to vend bonsai tree gardens, or even somewhere like Centennial, the next step is to purchase as broad of a selection of planters as you can justify. Pottery is a commodity, and like any stock, the prices are climbing, especially when shipping to Castle Rock, Parker, or Golden. Yes, it's cheaper to grow aloe, but who's running that business, am I right? The most important part about selling a potted cactus is putting it in a pot, and they're not getting any cheaper.
7.) Turn Brighton into Commerce City by selling pots for more than you paid for to the Greeley, gardening community, or anyone who wants a vegetable box planter. << Pottery Jargon Quota Satisfied >> A big advantage to selling lots of pots is being available when the customer is available, which is all the time or on the weekends. No one ever made a million part time on their time with no time for a dime on the customer's time.
8.) Market your wares whenever you dare. It's probably here, or there, but as long as you care, it'll show, and your following will grow.
9.) Maintain consistency, pursue excellence, sustain growth. Routinely preach to the choir, pursue better quality products that sell faster, reinvest capital into additional profit rendering items and efficiencies.
10.) Never stop.
11.) Hire you a Rudy to do manual labor because you're over it and pots are hard. When he talks back, bluff him into quitting, even though you'll weep his departure for weeks, especially when you find out he got a new job, selling himself, as a rival business man, in the widget game.
12) Get you a new Rudy.
13) Come on though, do I really have to spell it all out for you? Hit me up if you think you got what it takes to make a mill, in jest, or if you happen to be one of the best, like me.
*** The implication is you can skip all the effort and just come give me the money ***
