It’s been a long time coming, but with all that’s been going on, it’s taken us months to buckle down and finish our wholesale catalogue. Now that it’s done though, comes the hard part for us. Dave and I aren’t much of sales people – we’re much better with a hammer and a sewing machine than we are at talking to stores, so one of our awesome customers gave us the best suggestion ever… (are you excited? here it comes:)
[special_font size=”30″ unit=”px”]HIRE YOUR CUSTOMERS AS YOUR SALES TEAM![/special_font]
Genius, isn’t it? We thought so.

Since we know that our customers are the best people to share our products with the world (which is the entire reason we launched the Customer Love program in the first place), we figure you guys might also be the best people to help us get over our door-to-door fears. Rather than hire a professional rep to visit stores representing us, we’d rather hire our customers. Plus, chances are, you know of a shop or two where our work would fit right in.
Here’s how it works: if you’re interested in visiting local boutiques and telling them all about Divina Denuevo, and why we’d be a great fit for their store, email us! We’ll hook you up with all that you need to get started, and help you identify the right stores (ones that support local designers, and that have products in a similar aesthetic to ours – obviously we aren’t going to fit in somewhere that sells Prada or super frilly girly girl stuff).
Once the store makes an order, you get paid on commission – you can choose to take that in cash, or in merchandise (you’ll get more if you take merchandise) – so the bigger the order, the more you’ll make! It’s a great way to earn some extra cash if you’ve got the gift of the gab, while helping out a small local business and talking about a brand you’re excited about. You’ll also have our eternal gratitude – some people are just better at this than others, we recognize that we’re not those people.

If that’s not quite up your alley, then please consider suggesting any stores in your area that you think might be a good fit, so we can reach out to them. Again, if they are interested, we’ll hook you up 🙂
Thanks in advance and Super Fan, if you’re out there, we can’t wait to hear from you!
