Fluff Friday 10

Fluff is all about neck scratches.

Just a cat puddle, filling up the sink (the water stayed off).

“It’s exhausting being me.”

The cutest little napper :D

Got Fluff this sweet sweater! I thought she would like it more because it has a wider neck than her other clothes. She hates it just as much!

Fluff asks us to open the slider for her (she likes to smell the air and listen for critters) but lately it’s been pretty cold and snowing. So on Tuesday, I let her investigate the snow situation. Surprise, surprise! She did not like it.

Fluff Friday 09

Just stealing some hand warmers off the counter.

Fluff was VERY interested in these giant green beans.

We brought a Minnie key chain back from Disney and I stuffed some catnip in her head. After I staged about 100 pictures, all of which resulted in her pushing Minnie away, I gave up. But then she cuddled with it all on her own! She loves it!

Fluff tries cotton candy! She didn’t love it.

We got her this bed for her birthday. She hates it.

Just keeping an eye on Fall.

All packed and ready to help with a party! We were asked to bring a stapler, so Fluff is holding onto it.

UN Week Promotion

This year, I’ve been trying to see what sales drive the most traffic to my Etsy shop. I’ve held a sale almost every week and have been comparing the difference between free shipping, percent off, and minimum item count sales. October 24th was United Nations Day, so I ran a UN Week sale for the week of October 21-27.

I did a fixed percent off of 10%. But The United Nations is about working together, so I decided I should give back with this promotion as well. A donation would be good, but can you just give money to the UN? Yes, you can! (find their full collection of agencies here)

I offered 10% off, so I chose to donate 10% of all sales that week. I made mention of it in the “Sale Description” so people would know where their money would be going. I had a Farmers Market that week, so I knew I would be able to donate more than just a few dollars. And then the market was canceled due to weather.

And I only made one online sale.

So my donation amount was 85 cents.

I had already picked out the UNHCR- The UN Refugee Agency to donate to, and I donated $8.50.

I liked this promotion even though it didn’t yield a huge donation. It feels good to give back and to help people. In the future, I will definitely:

1) make it a month-long promotion
2) advertise what I’m doing in my shop announcement
3) advertise on social media, and in person at whatever I am
4) share which specific agency I have picked out
