I just wanted to share my joy - I just made my 500th Folksy sale - I am so excited, this was my target for the year, and I made it! Ooodles of promotion but lots of return customers too. I am so proud of my little hand-made business.
My shop has been open for 19 months and I have never worked harder, but to see it paying off is glorious. I have had times when sales have been almost non-existent, and I pondered on if it was even worth continuing flogging a dead horse as tumble-weed blew through my shop. I’m so glad I persevered, and actually motivated myself to work harder. Now it seems, my customers are doing some of the work for me, as they pass on my name, and Facebook orders are increasing thanks to their promotion. just wanted to say, if you are having a lean spell, please don’t give up. Just don’t wait for your ship to come in, swim out to it. Customers won’t find you, you have to find them, a lesson I’ve learned: creating pretty things ain’t even half the battle!
Thanks for letting me share my minor achievement with you - I know lots of people will have surpassed 500 sales easily, but I’ve worked so hard for it, that it really does feel like a major event!
Wishing you all a magical and fruitful Sunday <3 xxx
