Surprising & Wrapping

These two are very important when you have an online shop, or any shop for that matter. I try to pack the ordered products in a special way and if the amount spent in my shop exceeds a given sum, then I like to surprise my customers with something special...

I don't know much about marketing, so I do not follow any rules or strict advices. Actually I don't even like to spend a lot of time on this aspect of the "business" (although I know I should)... For me creating is what keeps my mind and heart busy at all times. But in spite all this, I like to think of what I would like to receive when I order something online. And especially if it is something handmade... I'd expect something special, something out of the ordinary, something that I would normally not expect...

So here is my advice to handmade artists who sell online: think of yourselves. Consider what you would like to get! And that way you'll give the best you can. I think no one would expect more than that...Or less for that matter.

After hiding surprises among the ordered creations, comes the wrapping up. I don't think that the secret of wrapping lies in the high quality of some fancy paper...Take a look at what I did in the past couple of days.
What is really important, I think, is to have somewhat the same style in wrapping as you have in general for what you create. That way I'd dare to say that your art extends to this final detail!
