How to Sell a Product to Hallmark and Become a Hallmark Stores Suppliers
Today I want to talk about a question that comes up all of the time in my workshops and classes.
People always ask me, “Karen, how do I get my product to the Hallmark Cards? I have this great product and just think I’d love to just get into that retailer. Do you have any quick tips or strategies and things to consider about Hallmark?”
Most people think that Hallmark can only just display cards or even holiday greeting cards. But the truth is, Hallmark can be amazing for people who have gift items. The fact that they have so many different types of products in their stores, they don’t just have cards.
I try and teach people how to go after as many retailers as possible and making serious money from them. Sometimes, retailers like Hallmark are great because all of your competitors haven’t thought about selling their product to them. So if you have a great gift item, explore Hallmark because a lot of competitors don’t even consider it.
Now, the other thing about Hallmark is that they have corporately owned stores. They have stores they own and so forth. They also actually have individual on-store, which basically means that the store owner can buy for that individual store because they have corporate buyers and then there are some Hallmark stores that you can go to and seriously just get in your car, go to those stores, talk to the person who owns that store or the store manager and see if you can potentially get your product into that individual store. That’s a little bit different than some other corporately owned retail stores.
With Hallmark, there are people who own individual stores, and so for those, you can actually just go there, and see if the individual store owner would be willing to put your product into their store and ultimately still get brand recognition of selling your product to Hallmark. However, it is for an individual store and not for all of their stores. That’s something to consider as well.
Anyways, I hope that provided value for you. Again, this Karen with Retail MBA.
