Simple Treasures for Sale New Years Resolutions

As I am sure you are doing this time a year I am doing some planning for the new year.   I have come up with the following New Years Business Resolutions that I am going to do my best to see through.

1.  Work on lowering shipping prices
I understand that no one likes to pay shipping.  I myself find it difficult to pay shipping on things I order online.I pledge to do my best to lower my cost on the shipping I pay so that I can pass the savings onto you.  Hopefully in the end I would like to offer free shipping to everyone and still keep the prices low on the products.

2.  Work on quality of photos for website
I am most certainly not  a professional photographer.   I have learned a little and hopefully will expand on what I have learned to improve the quality of the photos on the website.

3.  Work on expanding makeup lines
I would like to expand on the items I sell in the makeup section of the website.  From time to time I may be asking for everyone’s input in order to keep the options fresh and so that there is something for everyone.

4.  Work on expanding products for men
While working with Bradley University it was pointed out several times that the website doesn’t offer enough items for men.   I plan on working towards expanding that section of the website as well.   From time to time I may be asking for everyone’s input on different ideas of what everyone would like to see.

I am always open to anyone’s input so if there is something you would like to see let me know and I will see what I can do to accommodate you.

Year End Reflection

As I am sure everyone has noticed 2019 has been a very busy and active year for Simple Treasures.   We have done our best to but our best foot forward and stay true to our core values.

  1. A commitment to integrity, fairness and responsibility
  2. Delivering our very best in all we do, holding ourselves accountable for results.

In 2019 we implemented several new ways of communication.  Not all have come easily for us and we have had some bumps along the way.  Some examples are listed below.
 

  1. Weekly newsletter
  2.  Instagram Stories
  3.  Facebook Stories
  4. Posted new products on twitter
  5. Text message advertising
  6. Google My Business
  7. Holiday Flash Sales
  8. Facebook Messenger New Product Alerts
  9. Billboards

We have tried to send some interesting information in our weekly emails instead of constantly pushing for sales.  Not sure if we have succeeded with this but it was never our goal to be pushy.   We have only wanted to interact with our customers.

Along with our trying to provide information in a fun and informative way we have also tried to gather input from our current customers on what they wanted to see on the website.   We have set out to accomplish this 2 different ways.

        1.  Survey Monday Email
        2.  Bradley University Case Study

The information we received back has been invaluable and we can’t express enough our thanks to those who completed the survey.   We also want to thank the students at Bradley University for the case study they completed.   We hope to make several more improvements in 2020 as a result from that case study.

In the end we are very thankful for the opportunities that 2019 has brought to us and look forward to see what new things to come in 2020.

Bath & Body Works

What’s in your purse?

I have a friend who smokes and worries about smelling like smoke all of the time.   One day we were meeting at a restaurant for lunch.   When I arrived I could see her smoking in her car.  I pulled in got out and so did she.   As she greeted me she pulled a full sized bottle of Bath & Body Works Love & Sunshine out of her over sized purse.   She then proceeded to spray herself with it in an effort to get rid of the smoke smell.

Watching her do this made me wonder why she didn’t have the travel sized spray in her purse.  I also wondered what other products did she have in there?  So of course I asked.   She had a pursed sized hand cream and a foaming hand sanitizer.  I’m sure that over sized purse was heavier then all get out.

Just made me wonder how many woman are walking around with full bottles of products in their purses?
