Congo's on HC??

Hi Ladies,

Does anyone know the benefit of a Congo over a private store on HC?

I was asked to join a congo...I'm not currently on HC.

I'm establishing my business now.

Any info?

Re: Congo's on HC??

MY preference is a personal store front, but that is because I then have control over everything - design, when I want to stock (some congos you can only stock 1x a month or only on Thursdays or whatever), and what I want to stock (some have restrictions....lets say you decide you want to make a new product but another congo member already makes and sells them you may not be allowed to list it because it is a competing product).

The positive side is that it is less expensive and with more people selling from one place you are bound to get more hits.

I would not join a group of sellers unless I knew them personally, for a long time or the members had stellar reputations. Associations can be good but they can be bad as well. Since your business is new and just getting established an good association could really benefit you but the a bad one could ruin your business before it gets off the ground.

I guess that I lucked out! I joined a congo and it's been a great experience. I knew nothing about HC and wouldn't of got anywhere on my own. I really like the congo format.
