Well, something cool happened that could have been a bad thing but, for some reason, that light bulb in my brain kicked in and I came up with an idea that may turn out to have quite a good outcome! So, I thought I'd let you guys know and maybe you could use this idea some time!
So, someone bought a pair of my Puff-Me-Knots - - Yay!! And the day after she bought them, she convo'd me and asked if I could mail them Priority Mail because she needed them by the weekend for a birthday party. Well, I realized that I hadn't made any distinction in my descriptions any where regarding how I ship things so I decided not to mention extra charges to her and just bite the bullet, chalk it up to a learning experience and add some details about shipping to my shop!
The day after she asked if it could be shipped Priority, she convo'd me again and asked if she owed me anything extra. This is where the light bulb went off.
I told her the extra charge was minor so if she would be so kind as to tell all of her friends about my shop and somehow help me promote, we could call it even! Tah-dah! heehee
She convo'd back and said she had bought the Puff-Me-Knots as a birthday present for her daughter's friend who was in a SKATING CLUB with her daughter and they met every Saturday!!! She got them for the girl to put on her skates!! Total Coolness!! The other skater moms will be at the party Saturday so she'll be telling them all about where she got the Puff-Me-Knots AAAANNDD --- She has a blog where she'll be talking about my Puff-Me-Knots!!! How cool is that??
So, thought I'd let you know and maybe you can use this idea some time!
