Other classes by Ryan Ouellette
Ethical Upselling: sell smarter not harder.
A comprehensive discussion about how to present and sell fine body jewelry in the modern market. For piercers transitioning away from lower end jewelry options expansion and sales can be an intimidating task. Learn how to select new lines and options for quick turn around and reinvestment. Grow your client base through applied product knowledge and presentation. For piercers trying to increase sales of high end items it can be frustrating encountering price shoppers, sticker shock, and lower price point competition. We will discuss ways to change the conversation to focus on jewelry options and quality while respecting the budget of the client. Guiding your clients to a better choice rather than pressuring them into a sale has helped grow some of the industry's top studios. Learn the skills to succeed and grow your business.
Piercing Marking Workshop*.
*This class is best presented live to an audience, as such it will be suspended until COVID travel restrictions are eased. Just like most aspects of piercing, there is more than one correct way to mark a piercing. We will explore several options including surgical skin markers, tooth + gentian violet, needle blank marking, and more. We will also cover how to mark advanced placements such as paired nostrils, inverted nipples, surface piercings, ear projects, and much more. This will be an expanded version of the class offered at BMXNET.
