Helloooooo old friends! On the off chance that anyone stops by here, I wanted to tell you what I’ve been up to lately. First, I miss you! I can’t believe it’s been over a year since I accidently quit blogging. I took a week off to get my feet under me and never came back. I miss all of my blogging friends so much.
I started a new business back in November, but I’ve been really slow to tell my blogging buddies about it because I wanted to make sure it would actually work
Now I know that the business model is working (really well) and we’re doing something so cool that I don’t want to hide it anymore. Can I give you a quick intro to the business and then tell you the cool thing that we’re doing? (It relates to Compassion International.)
The business is called Everyday Icing
. We sell fashion jewelry directly on Facebook. Yes, Facebook. We have super sweet accessories at at super sweet prices. We fully realize that it’s an unusual business model, but it’s working. Direct sales on Facebook is a fairly new thing, but it’s a fun way to combine social media and shopping! Two of my favorite things!
Our sales are every Monday at 9pm (eastern) on our facebook page
and some weeks we have have special themed sales on Thursday…things like Scarf-A-Palooza and Nautical Night.
We offer around 30 different items for a fixed price (usually between $12-$20) and shipping is always free. We post pictures of the items we have that week along with a desciption, price and the quantity that we have. There are limited quantities of each item and when they’re gone, they’re gone.
Shopping with us is as easy as 1-2-3!
- You “like” our facebook page.
- Comment “sold” with your email address on any sweet treat that you can’t resist. If you’d rather keep your email private, click on the “Register Here” tab to enter your email address. Then just comment “Sold”.
- We invoice through paypal and once you’ve paid, we ship. So easy!
There’s a tab on our facebook page called “How to Bid” and it explains exactly how shopping on facebook works.
Now here’s the cool part…We always give 10% of our profits directly to Compassion International. Their work is important to us and we know it’s important to you. But we want to do more. Today and tomorrow, we are going to offer one very special piece that we’re calling our Compassion Bracelet. 100% of the proceeds from that bracelet will benefit Compassion. We’re hoping to raise at least $1,000 through sales of that piece on Thursday and Friday.
We would be so grateful if you would check out Everyday Icing and share this special sale in any way…
on your blog, on twitter, on facebook. We are praying that this is successful so that we can make it a regular thing.
