Just a quick update on Rainbowholic blog~
I just figured I haven’t blogged about my recently relaunched (and still under construction) website at www.shop.rainbowholic.me ! :blank:
This website took me almost two weeks to finish! Had to insert this while doing work duties & meetings. But nevertheless, after sleepless nights, I’ve done it!! Yay!
Because everyone loved the platform sneakers I was offering on my shop, I decided to sponsor two pairs of platform sneakers!
I’ve gotten comments about how some of the stuff I’ve been offering are “too pricey” or you can get it cheap here, etc, etc. Honestly, owning a mini shop is like being an artist. How much you price the stuff you sell also reflects how your brand image / name want to appear to everyone. As for the handmade stuff I create that I also sell, I don’t magically finish one item in 5 minutes. It takes passion, inspiration and money (for the materials).. and time to do it. This is why I love Japan, people support the stuff you create without being rude and telling that “you can get this somewhere else cheaper” / “it’s just a bow”, etcetera. Everyone is welcome to buy wherever they feel comfortable but I think that respect for people who are striving to become creative entrepreneurs should be given and not forgotten. It’s plain simple, if you don’t have anything nice to say.. the best is to keep it to yourself. : )
Sure, you can get the similar shirt from somewhere else but is the service the same? Do you feel the same kind of happiness when it arrives to your doorstep? I don’t think so. I’m also a frequent online shopper so I know how it feels to be a customer. I didn’t dive into something just to make money out of it. It’s more of practicing how to give 100% service to clients and making them feel that what they paid for was properly compensated with the quality service a shop owner gives…. and as for the issues with EMS shipping, yup it does cost a LOT but if you don’t want to get your package lost & can’t be tracked, you really need to shell out some money.
Sigh… I don’t even know if this risky venture of mine will skyrocket or fail in the future, but I am doing the best of my abilities now. 頑張ります！
Anyway, enough of my musings.. :nod: . here are just a preview of how I do service to my clients. :yay:
You don’t just receive a pair of shoes.
I make sure you will be overjoyed to open a box full of presents from Japan!
By the way, here’s a lovely review of my Shopping Service by one of my first clients, Jess-san~ Please take some time to read it! ^^v
