I had my Skype meeting with Jessika at Oh My! and it was AMAZING!
I am so thankful that I got the opportunity to meet with her!!
We shared tons of laughs and I learned so many great tips. Jessika really opened my eyes to new ideas that I never really thought about. Plus I got to met her adorable daughters. :)
First we talked about my brand new logo, the behind the scenes things being worked on, and the exciting grand opening that is coming up quick!
We talked about the new blog that I am having made to match the site. I have never blogged very much but it is something that I definitely want to do more often once the new site it up. She mentioned the importance of sourcing and crediting others work when blogging. There was also some talk about the idea of me doing how to tutorials. Doesn't that sound like so much fun!? I already have ideas floating around that I want to share. If you have anything that you would like to see feel free to leave them in the comments.
The next topic that we talked about is pitching my products. This is also something I really want to do. Jessika had some great tips that I must share.
-Always address the person by name.
-Make the editor feel loved. ♥
-Generally photos are looked at first and they must be editorial worthy.
-Never include an attachment!
-Follow bloggers & editors on Twitter and build and personal relationship.
-Send samples for them to see your product up close
We also disscussed wholesale and she had some advice. Right now my wholesale is set up for wholesalers to get a discount when a certain amount of items is purchased. Jessika told me that wholesalers look for a line sheet. It makes ordering much more professional and organized. I am planning on switching over to a line sheet as soon as possible. If you have a lookbook you and also use that as a wholesale catalog. Simply add your line sheet and speical note to wholesale customers.
Sneak peek of surprise packages that will be free every order on grand opening day!
Stickers that I have been putting everywhere!! ☺
and my new awesome mouse pad and pen!!!
