The next couple of months are going to be extremely busy for me, and what better way to keep everyone updated on my thoughts, and get some feedback than through this blog!
The biggest thing going on now is my fathers business, Oblo Jewellery, is moving from the wholesale side into online sales direct to the customer.
So far over the last few months we have managed to get the store online and in about 3 weeks get our Facebook page up over 200 likes and growing steadily.
With my brother Andre Oboler having all the necessary computer skills to build the website, that leaves me to look after the Facebook Community. Up til this point none of us have had time to actually sit down and develop a real strategy of how we are going to build this effectively new company and start selling Jewellery online. Unfortunately that is most likely not going to change in the coming few weeks which is resulting in everyone doing their own thing without really talking to the other people.
A couple of early lessons on the Facebook side of things:
Adding a Welcome page for those that haven't 'like'd us before has been an extremely important addition to the Facebook page. The downside is we have had plenty of views of the welcome page, but not many people clicking through and 'like'ing us and wanting to join the community.
What are some good tips and tricks to get people to click past the Welcome page?
