keenaskreations composed this treasury, and I've never felt sexier. Well, I may have, but this particular set of earrings sure hasn't.
Fancylinda says no more than 20% on the coupon, maybe even 15%... sounds good to me. However, I just remembered I'm going out of town next week so I need to wait until after that to offer any coupon. D'oh!
So, as always, I get antsy when a few days go by without sales. I'm considering some kind of promotion. I was thinking of maybe saying if you follow my blog and leave a link to a blog post about my shop or items, you could get a certain percentage off? (I prefer this to an all-out giveaway. I'd go crazy deciding which item, for one.) I could announce it on my shop, and it would give me some nice promo.
Now the question is, what percentage would the coupon be for? As a shopper I remember thinking any percentage less than 50 wasn't worth a second look, but as a seller... I once gave a wholesale discount of 20% and it was almost heartbreaking. Which is crazy because I still have several checks from work I haven't given a second glance for a couple of months just sitting on my counter top. So. Money isn't an issue. I don't know. Any ideas out there? Think this is worth the bother? Is it tacky? Don't know why I should think it is, I'm just awful at self-promotion... Is 20% enough to generate interest? Should it be more? 25%? What, more? Now you're just talking crazy! What, you think I'm crazy? Well, I'm not the one arguing with her computer screen, honey. Nope.
This luscious cllection bythegypsykiss includes TWO of my items! Is that legal? The gypsy kiss is the lovely lady who posted about me in her facebook to introduce me to the tribal fusion belly dance community. In Japanese, that would be shortened to Tufubedaco. I'm just saying. They need to shorten it and TFBDC doesn't exactly roll off the tongue. This is her, modeling her own belt creation:
Yup, just my average sexalicious customer. They all look that good, I know it.
MonicaI made this treasury all about cuffs. What a great idea.
This guy was wanting some love, too. Cuffs haven't been my best sellers. Or they have but since I don't see the sold ones in my shop, I forget they ever existed. That's probably more likely.
I'm soon to move my studio from my coffee table and all over the living/dining area downstairs to my upstairs bedroom, since we have 4 rooms upstairs and hardly use them. I'm gonna make it all cozy and display all my supplies, so I don't have to feel bad about the space they occupy or what a mess hubs has to live in. I think this will help me not feel as panicky over my supplies or feel in such a rush to finish projects. Plus it's the room I take pictures in, so that part will get done much faster and more organically. I can't wait! I need some good storage/display shelves. I've already bought some bins. Eeeeee!
