PASSOOM PASSOOM Everywhere!!!!

I know, I know. I haven't written a blog post in ages.  What I have been doing is lots of listing. Lots. As well as my 'flagship' store at passoom.com, most of my stock is now in my eBay store. It doesn't end there. No way, Pedro! We also now have a store on Etsy and we are trialling ten of our top items on the US gift store Gifthead.So how are sales going? Well, nearly all sales are coming from eBay as you might expect, being the corporate giant that it is. The customer base is already there. I may also look to listing items on Amazon but my initial attempt was in vain with my items not having barcodes (yet). The listing...

Pulling Teeth and Rock Babies

Long time, no post!I have been so busy adding to my existing inventory and also taking my sales over to eBay to run alongside my website. Obviously, the idea is to use the audience that comes with eBay and after each first purchase, let people know about my website.

However, funds are low at the moment so it might be a couple of weeks until I put this into action. I...

Penguins and Potatoes

After getting over the major disaster with my pricing, I got all of my inventory priced correctly and did my best to communicate the new price points.The real issue I was coming up against was how best to spend my time. For instance, do I introduce a new design into my offerings or a new style of garment for an existing design? Both are very time consuming operations so my gut told me to bring in new designs and only expand on those that sell.The next issue was one of direction. With this little clothing project, my initial plan was to focus on 'vegan' with the vegan printing process being a selling point. However, I am finding that I don't...

The Price Is Right - They've 'Come on Down'

Retail is like religion in that it has many contradictory laws that are subject to interpretation. On the one hand, it is said that 'It won't happen overnight. You have to work at it and don't let failures derail you'. On the other hand, (and I think Alan Sugar has said this) you get the conflicting 'If an idea isn't working, move on to something else.' So where is the threshold between these two pieces of advice?
