I have been doing some serious thinking lately about how I sell my dolls and my mailing list.
The way I have been selling is a bit haphazard and could be unfair. I have often accepted an offer to adopt from a collector on social media before the doll or teddy was finished. Or just kinda finished a doll and then moved on to the next one. My mind will already be working on a new project before finishing the old. I always have several things on the go at once. This is just how my mind is and I have learnt to live with it. Anyway this leads to collectors not knowing when a doll is for sale or even if a doll is for sale. (not all of them are)
Also, on the mailing list side of things. I realise that I don’t have the time or the ability to send lots of interesting doll related emails out. So here is what I propose instead:-
From Now On
From now I will only send an email if I have a doll or teddy for sale. I shall not post finished photos on social media beforehand. There will be a link in the email for people on the list to be able to purchase them if they would like. Folks on social media will get to see the work in progress shots of the doll or teddy being made and maybe a little teaser photo. But the mailing list will get the first viewing of the completed doll. And the opportunity to buy before I tell social media about it.
Following me on Instagram will get you the best opportunity to see dolls and teddies that are being made. And then you’ll know what is coming up. I’m not so good at keeping Facebook up to date.
Well I hope that all makes sense. If you have any queries please comment below or send me a message and I will do my utmost to explain.
If you should like to join my mailing list just click on this button and it will take you to my signing-up page.
till next time, down the rabbity hole
P.S. if I have something absolutely staggering to tell, that I want my special crew to know about first, I may well send them an email about it. But it will have to be quite staggering otherwise things will appear in blog posts and on social media.
