Pink Fortune accessories 2011

Pink Fortune is now stocked with new accessories for 2011. I sent some of the new items at the Bloggers United bazaar last week. I uploaded a few at the Multiply site, I’m just sneaking taking photos while Gwen is asleep that’s why the slow uploading. I actually considered stopping selling accessories and just sell what’s left of my stocks but when I visited my supplier’s shop, I can’t help but share these beauties…

Fall in love with this Love Connector ring…

Level up my business

Online shopping in the Philippines has come a long way, from Multiply, online shops have conquered Facebook. But as I’ve said before, I don’t want to make my personal account in Facebook an online circus of some sort. But what I’ve been considering for months now is to buy a domain name for my site and set it up as a stand-alone e-commerce/shop site complete with shopping cart features. I think Philippine market is mature enough for this kind of shopping experience and I know a lot of Philippine-based online sites that are already successful with this kind of set-up.

I already have an existing web hosting for my blogs but I’m afraid that the space/bandwidth won’t be enough to accommodate the existing traffic my Multiply store has. One suggestion is for me to have my own server, but I’m too novice for those technical stuff. Having my own dedicated server might be an advantage for me in the future should I acquire more blogs and online shops but I’m lost with all technical jargons. But I found a great deal in with their managed hosting, aside from their managed dedicated servers that I can acquire, it also comes with a 5-in-1 deal which includes managed backup, managed firewalls, OS hardening, patches and updates and proactive monitoring. Looks like a promising plan, right? And if all things became successful, I can even avail of their colocation plans to take care of my server.

Just sharing you some of my hopes on becoming a successful entrepreneur, but in the meantime, do check out the latest collection from Pink Fortune, multi-way bags that are definitely bang for the buck!

Promoting my online shop

Here I am again, creating an online buzz about my online shop that sells fashion accessories. Sales these past few months are kind of slow. Maybe because competition is stiff nowadays with a lot of online shops sprouting not only in Multiply but also in Facebook. I still refuse to migrate selling in Facebook because Facebook for me, is more of a personal account and I reckon this is also the case for others. So I’m happy with my current online shop in Multiply and swore to myself that I will not tag my friends in Facebook about my wares. I’ll just find other ways in increasing my sales without being too pushy and with a code of ethics in mind.

One way to promote my online shop, Pink Fortune, is through classifieds. Just like including our blogs in link directories, listing our online shops in different classifieds and directories will make it more visible to prospective customers and buyers. It’s also free so there’s nothing to lose, just hardwork and patience because creating and posting classifieds can be quite tedious especially when manually entering the details. But I promise, you’ll gain a sale/s from these listings. I once read that in sales, one must not stop marketing his/her products.

Pink Fortune’s new look and new uploads

It’s been a more than a year since I changed my online shop’s layout, Pink Fortune. Maybe one of the reasons of my online selling hiatus for a few months is because I got tired of the new layout. I asked Ann of Design.Create.Art to revamp my site last April, but she got busy until now. Finally, my Multiply online shop has a fab new look and I love it to bits!

A holiday update

Happy Holidays!

Happy holidays everyone! I’ve been MIA for quite some time, I’m sorry for the lack of updates. I should include on my New Year’s Resolution to update my blog regularly next year. As much as I would like to write and posts all my food-related posts, I just can’t find the time because orders from my online shop, Pink Fortune, kept pouring and I can’t turn them down. And I’m really thankful for my sales this year, yey!

Aside from my shop, I’ve been busy with our Christmas presentation in the office, we have to make a music video instead of the usual group presentation of a sing/dance number on the day of our party. I thought a music video is cool and less time-consuming but I was wrong. It took away all my December weekends because we have to go to location shoots, hehe. But all our hardwork and embarassment paid off, we bested the four groups with our Honey by Mariah Carey. Kudos to our director Alvin and our beautiful lead star whose name I won’t reveal, hehe… Geeesh, I don’t know why I’m posting this but anyway, I hope you’ll enjoy our amateur music video… look for me in that vid =)

Multiply supports online sellers!

It has been an issue since last year that Multiply deletes online shops since it’s a violation of their terms of service. Well, online sellers have a reason to rejoice because Multiply now supports online sellers. On your account info, you can now choose the account whether it’s personal or online shop so that you can properly identify your site. Below is Multiply’s official statement:

Until now, running a shop on Multiply has technically been a violation of our terms of service. As long as you didn’t spam anyone though, we simply looked the other way and let you go about your business. I know that this policy didn’t exactly give you all a lot of comfort, so I’m happy to announce that we’ve updated our terms of service to reflect the fact that running a shop on Multiply is now an officially endorsed activity.
