HOW IT AL STARTED
Finally I am almost ready to get the new on-line store published.
This has been a process of over 2 years time.
In May 2015 I launched my first - very basic - Sun Sand Salt web-shop, but unfortunately within some months the back office started to have problems and the shop just stayed on-line as some kind of catalog, even with the chance to order something, but with incorrect stock quantities & prices, no invoices, no confirmation mails etc.
Not really being sure whether I should continue and invest time & money in a new shop, for some time nothing really happened.
But the small business kept growing, my name started to be out there and I became more active on Facebook, where the response was also positive.
AND WHERE I HAD TO RESTART AGAIN
All this together, made me decide to start with a new shop in January 2016. Due to many different circumstances in my private life, the work on that new shop design and uploading was always the last priority on my TO-DO-LIST.
And only in November of that same year I really started to work on it.
But also here bad luck was peeking around the corner and the (still off-line design) shop
got deleted for unclear reasons.
DID I REALLY WANT TO START FOR THE THIRD TIME?
And again I had to decide if the cosmos was against me and my shop was not really mend to be or was it a bigger plan and did I have to show even harder that I really wanted this business?
After a short period of doubt, I decided for the last option.
And I started for the third time with my shop design, this time with Weebly.com, this time doing everything myself and this time more determined to get this shop out there and in an even better way than the previous two attempts.
And here I am......... I started the first of March 2017 with designing, learning, reading, asking, checking, trying, deleting, adjusting, improving, correcting, uploading, photographing, listening,
Now - while writing this in the beginning of June, I am getting close to the point of launching
the new shop. Feeling proud, excited and relieved.
I will continue in the process of learning, changing and improving the shop and also I will keep uploading the rest of the products (I have too many, to upload them all for the launch, so I start with just a selection).
Don't be too hard on me, I am still learning a lot and will improve more and more.
This is a fun process of growing and sharing.
HAPPY SHOPPING!!! And thanks for your support.
My name is Anneke AND I STARTED in January
