A potential new customer
« on: October 28, 2012, 09:30:31 AM »
I just sold a set of my mugs on Etsy.  The customer wrote to me and told me that he would probably be coming back to buy more in the future.  I wrote back and told him about this site and that I had much more listed here than on Etsy. He has bookmarked the site for the future.  :)

Word of mouth is the strongest promotion in my opinion!

I agree, Andrew.  Anyone who buys from me on Etsy gets an e-mail with all of my shop names in the signature, and this one is at the top of the list.  I am glad I had the opportunity to tell this customer about this site in a more direct way.  He seems very nice on first impression, and I hope he comes here the next time he wants to buy something.

Nice move to get them here to this shop and congrats on the sale.  But hey, they are great mugs.

Thank you!  I try to let the Etsy buyers know about this shop by listing my shops in the e-mails that I send to them when I get their order and ship it.  This time I had the opportunity to give him the link directly when he said he would probably be buying from me again.  Since I have more listed here than on Etsy, I was able to use that to tell him about the site.
