Last night I had a chance to update the HS* banner for spring, and to upload some of the new webpage designs of the SusyJack* site, so, I thought I'd share more of what is going on behind the scenes today. Things are definitely coming together, but there is still much to do before next week.
SusyJack* Shop Featured!
I'm happy to announce that my shop has been selected as a featured shop on Big Cartel which I am really excited about! Not only is this perfect timing, since I'll be putting the newest items up within a few days, but it also gives me a great opportunity to promote their service here on HS*.
For independent sellers, I can't say enough about the features of this ecommerce option. Of course, I still love Etsy...Of course!! But, one thing I don't like is sending customers from my main site to my Etsy store. It creates an extra step, and takes away from the impact of my brand. In my opinion, it makes SusyJack* look smaller than I want it to. Since I'm going after larger retailers, who I think might have room for my products, I want to give an independent, wholesalers-welcome appearance. And, I also like having the ability to offer sales, discount codes and drop down menus. The price is very affordable.
Paper Pops and Poppytalk!
I also wanted to mention that I will be participating in the next round of the Poppytalk Handmade Market, called 'Paper Pops!'...which will feature all things stationery and paper and run concurrently with NSS. Should be fun!
