CRAP! I only just filled that last order, and they're already back for more!
Alrightey then. Not just the UK, but there are ppl in other countries also now asking.
Some things I need to find out:
1.People are now asking about 'starter packages' and minimums. So whats a reasonable minimum order? *SH*T* Iduno, 25 pcs. total? that would mean if theyre going to regularly stock 5 designs, then they would start out with 5 each. I think thats very reasonable, but seeing hows ive never worked in retail, i wouldnt know.
2. That last order-they didnt even bother with a 'minimum', they just came and completely cleaned us out. So then, if someone is running both an online retail, and 'brick & mortar' storefront, what do you figure their customer base is?
So I asked a friend. His answer? "Easily ten thousand." was his reply.
ten, th- th- th- thhhhh- ...Ugh!
So how many customers does it take to successfully run a retail store, im wondering. And of that number, lets say 5-10 percent are going to then buy our product, what kind of number are we looking at...
Im like Gandalf, sitting at Bilbo's table. Riddles in the dark.
Things to ponder...
that last wholesale order took almost 4 days to completely fill.
'depleted almost the entire stock. its going to take atleast the next week, to completely restock it all. up til 3 am packing it all, almost didnt make it to the post office in time.
but this isnt bad, its good, as very soon stuff will be available for purchase in the UK.
dont know why, but at first i wasnt mentally ready for this, but ive embraced it now. And soon, ill be taking on more orders.
so, weeeell... I guess this is it.
moving into the next phase of things now.
seems like only yesterday, i was sitting at my desk making these silly little things...
