We should have been at a craft fair in Didsbury today but due to family circumstances we were forced to cancel, however we have had a relatively productive afternoon and managed to get quite a bit done.
If we want Cards & Candles For All Occasions to be a success we need to work on our selling and marketing strategies so today we have updated our Misi shop, opened a Folksy shop, started a new Facebook fan page and are in the process of updating our website.
This week we also plan to look into marketing… we are already listed on quite a few of the ‘free directories’ sites but we need to get our website on as many directories and advertising sites as we can, start up a mailing list to keep our potential customers informed of our latest products and offers and look at having some fliers, etc printed for distributing with orders and at craft fairs, and anywhere else we possibly can get away with it!!
So if you would like to have a look at our online stores, become our fan on Facebook or follow us on Twitter, then here is the links you need:
So now all of that is sorted, I’m off to see if I can find some sort of mailing list software/website and also look for more marketing ideas. Not forgetting, I need to keep working on new stock for our website, shops and craft fairs… so it’s busy busy busy here, I just hope it all pays off and the orders start rolling in lol.
Have a good evening folks!!
