Happy Tidbit Tuesday! I will get to that in a minute but I want to take a moment to address some things that have been happening lately. As you all know, I have a very very busy schedule. My days consist of getting my daughter on the bus and then sitting in front of the computer all day long filling orders, answering convo’s and revising sets/answering e-mails. I have recently had a few customers get extremely upset with me because of delays. I am not trying to make excuses here but you have to understand that I do work from home and I have to balance my shop and home life. Most nights I skip dinner with my family to work on orders so everyone can have them in a timely manner. This is why I reserve weekends for family and personal time. I know all of you understand but it is very hurtful when I get customers upset with me about these things:( I am so very lucky to have such amazing customers and a successful shop, but along with that comes time constraints. I am doing my best to keep up with everything and I hope you all can understand that:)
Moving on to Tidbit Tuesday! We all know that keeping up appearances on Facebook is key, but with all those messy codes, how can you figure it out? The answer to that is a page builder. You can use a variety of different places but my two favorites are Pagemodo.com and Vistaprint.com. I prefer pagemodo over vista because it is completely free and vista’s set up is a bit hard to navigate through. Either way, it is really important to have a Facebook page as well as keep it up to date and user friendly. It’s nice to have a contact page with a form for customers to fill out. Price pages are helpful too.
I also put together my very first Holiday Gift Guide and I am super proud of it! I found a really cool site that turns your pdf’s into a page turning catalog online. I will share it with you all here so you can see! I had so much fun I’ve decided to make a monthly guide for sellers. It is free of charge and you can post your newest item, coupon code, or just an ad! The idea is to get everyone that participates to send it out on their blogs, facebook pages and even print the guide out. It will be 1 page so spots will be limited. I will have a link in my next blog letting you know where to sign up.
I’m sure you all have been waiting for that black Friday coupon code! I will post it here but it will not be active until 5:00 a.m. on black Friday(November 23). It is a 60% off coupon that you can use on Friday and on cyber Monday. The code will go from 5:00 a.m. until 8:00 p.m. cst. I will reactivate the code on Monday for the same amount of time. Happy Shopping all!
Here is the code! BLACKFRIDAY60OFFSALE
Again, thank you all for understanding and supporting me. I have the best customers EVER!!!
