One of the wonderful aspects of our business is that we sell to bloggers. Not on purpose, but it is just a natural result of who our customers are. And, if you want to see Social Networking in action, just have bloggers as customers. Wow.
Take Tami as an example, someone, somewhere did a mention of us to a group of Annie Sloan Chalk Paint dealers, and all of a sudden we got alot of orders from the Chalk paint crowd who wanted to use glitter in their designs. (I still do not understand this connection of Chalk Paint and Glitter, if anyone can help me understand it, please do drop me a note!)
Now, I can not tell you if Tami found us because of the Chalk Paint connection, but if you check her blog, Chalk Paint is one of her main topics. But now Tami (bless her heart) did a shout out to us on her blog, and another group of artist and crafters hear about us and start placing orders. It's just a beautiful thing.
We really do not run any ads, just my little blog, an email to everyone once in a while, some Facebook, and good old word of mouth! And this seems to be all we need to do, as when folks like Tami start to talk about your product and give such a nice real world example of "Glitter in Action" who could ask for more!
So, Thanks Tami, you will be getting my "Blogger Appreciation Kit" in the mail! More of this kit later, but Tami will already know all about it, in just a few days........
