Whilst I have had my head down & fully immersed in setting up my new retail website – see previous post – the counter on this blog has been whirring round – and not only reached 20,000 – but added on another hundred viewings in the last week – thanks to you all – there must be something I’m doing right for once!
On the other hand – I’ve realised that I was being too coy in newz from julz and didn’t explain why I wanted you to fill out the form properly! I also didn’t think about how to ask the questions on the form!
Part of the reason I’m investing in this new website, is to be able to
more directly to my customers. Already, through etsy and ebay I would estimate that at least a third of my customers come from the US, and I also get quite a lot of people from Europe, Australia, and places I’d never have expected would have found me – and who must have seen this blog.
I also know, from the recent efforts I’ve made to send people who have originally bought via ebay, to my etsy shop, that you don’t like being redirected like that!
So – I am inviting all readers, from whatever part of the world, to fill in the slightly revamped form, so I can see where you come from, and whether you might consider buying craft supplies and/or gifts from me! So far, I’ve only had responses from people in the UK!
And to thank you for giving me a bit of information, I will be sending all those who fill in the form a coupon for 10% off your first order on the new site – which is why I am asking for your email address.
Of course, if you aren’t in the slightest bit interested – don’t fill in the form – smile. But if you are just a bit curious to see what I’m up to – it won’t take long – and you’ll be the first people I tell – when I’ve managed to work my way thro’ the shipping costings, and how to send emails confirming orders etc – that’s why its taking me so long – as well as copying my listings over from etsy, and adding in new stock etc etc……..
So – to the slightly altered form…….you can write a much or as little as you like – the spaces will expand if you need them to.
Many thanks to you if you have filled this in
I will send you the 10% off coupon as soon as I open the new STORE.
