Folksy Ltd

Being listed in a Gift Guide

(Suzzie Godfrey) #1

When a product gets listed in a gift guide that the Folksy Team have collated, is it possible to get a notification informing the seller which item has been chosen and onto which guide?
It seems such an honour to be included, from such a vast array of fantastic listings, on to such a limited guide, surely a heads up that you were included would be the cherry on the icing on the chelsea bun?
What do you think fellow Folksiers?

I think that would be a good idea Suzzie @thistledownandHOPE. Count my vote! x

I agree… it would give me a real lift …

Thank you Kelly @tagpress, sometimes you dont know if what you think is a good idea, has been done before or just isnt a good’en.
I have only been included once and I only found out when I was looking through that particular guide to be nosey! I was very excited that I had actually been chosen out of the millions of other wonderful products here on Folksy, but I would have loved to have been informed, wonder if I am on any other guides? One can dream…

This would be such a great idea as when one of my items was on a gift guide I was so happy.

(Amberlilly) #7

Yes, that would be a good idea, lets hope someone from Folksy sees this.

I really do think it’s a fab idea Suzzie @thistledownandHOPE. Just think how many sellers are chosen out of the whole of Folksy and many won’t even know! x

(Suzzie Godfrey) #9

That is exactly it Kelly @tagpress, unless you scour every gift guide on a frequent basis you would never know.

Hi @Amberlilly and @thistledownandHOPE you could add this idea to the list - or just mention @Folksyadmin in your post, and they will see it!
i think this would be good, too.

It’s something we’re actually already working on Suzzie!

We want to introduce a notification system so that sellers are notified every time someone favourite their shop or work, and when when of their products is added to a gift guide or the Folksy favourite.

It might be an email notification to start with, or it could be on your seller dashboard. Where would you like to see it?

(Suzzie Godfrey) #12

Great minds think alike!
Guessing either notification methods have their merits.
Dashboard keeps it all neat and in ‘Folksy’ house. Easy to find. You have to be signed in to see your dashboard, but then I think most people check regularly/daily anyway.

On the sellers dashboard would be great !

(Kelly) #14

That’s super Camilla @folksycontent. I’d be happy with either options but I suppose it would be more beneficial to people being able to see it on their dashboard. Thank you. x

(Kim Blythe) #15

On the dashboard would be great!

(Oh Button Me) #16

I think either would be great

(Linda Wild) #17

On the dashboard would be great!

(Sasha Garrett) #18

On the dashboard please.

(Ali Millard) #19

Great idea. I think it would be best to flag it up on the dashboard

Anywhere would be fine! as long as we get the notification. Has anyone ever noticed an increase of sales after being featured in the gift guide I wonder?
