Etsy Discounts..and your feedback please...
Click my etsy shop on the left (the soap one). I have discounted every item by 20%...you just gotta tap 20% in the comments box at checkout...and I'll refund you back into your paypal account.
Now xmas is approaching, I'd like to offer a little discount to tempt you into trying them.
I don't get many sales via etsy for soap (spose cuz so many others are on there), but would love for a few more people to try them.
Though times are tough at the moment, I've not had one bad bit of feedback about them, which is so nice.
Most of the sales come from local buyers in the shops I have them in, or from website sales through futureprimitive.
I have had some amazing customer comments so far, which is really very heartwarming and spurs me on to make more and more.
Here are a few of them:
'The soaps are just sooo creamy'.
'We usually buy our soap from provence every year when on holiday..but not this time...we like your soaps so much more'.
'Your Lagoon is absolutely amazing. So soft and the scent is heaven'.
'Don't ever stop making Geranium & Patchouli...it's scent and lather have me squealing with delight!'.
I could put a few more but don't want to blow me trumpet too much!
There are an awful lot of people making soap out there, and the market is a tough one to conquer, but I do feel like I'm on my way. Just a few more wholesale customers would be nice, so I'm on a mission at the moment to find 'em. Hence why I've been a tad quiet on the blog of late.
Busy times ahead.
And now...I'm preparing my 2010 catalogue. So, I may be really quiet. Don't fear, I'm still looking at all of your blogs and tweets.
So...keep up the good work...you all make amazing goodies.
In the meantime, I've been learning adobe InDesign.
I made these flyers (pics above) for my wholesale customers.
However, a friend of mine said that they're too scrolly. He said "You're selling soap!, You don't need all that fancy stuff. Make the pictures bigger, and don't put in so many fancy scrolls...I nearly rang you to tell you before you sent them out".
He may be right..but I could really do with your comments. So....PLEASE TELL ME HONESTLY WHAT YOU THINK...I really need to know.
