Pinterest Challenge!

Oh I am on a roll! I have posted to the blog is a record for me!! :)

Tonight while trasping around on the net I came up with a new goal and challenge that involves both you and I.

My goal is to get all of my in stock onto the main website at BB Butts Diapers. I have made progress by learning some formatting html and getting all of the new baby blankets listed. That means photos, editing, resizing for optimization...something for me that needs a good block of time and a clear head. For this reason I often put it off and that is the very reason the site lacks most of the time.

I am also going to stock my Hyena Cart again too! Brand new items will head there first then transfer over tot he main site.

I am offering a challenge with a prize to you to spurn me on. The challenge is for you to "pin" at least one item from the web site or Hyena Cart that you admire. Once you do this, comment here on this post and let me know what item you pinned and I am going to enter you in to a draw for a $20 GC.

The challenge will give me the motivation to continue to add new items and hopefully as I do you will come back and pin more items and for each pin you will receive an entry. I will post on Facebook each time I have added a new group so you are aware and can pop over here to add entries.

I will work on a product group at a time..for example all of the wipes wet bags or all of the boxers. As I work through each group I am redoing ALL of the image graphics so it takes some time.

So go and "pin it" and if you need an invitation to Pinterest, send me a message on the Facebook contact form and I will get you one.

Happy pinning!

New graphics have arrived!! I have been waiting for this exciting change to happen! I was able to work with a designer who ran with what we already had for branding and brightened things up and added images of our items.
She delivered exactly what I had hoped for and even did her own digging to find images of my stuff that she thought would work to add to the mix I had given her.

If you are wanting to freshen up your page, I would recommend heading to Hoot n' Tag on Facebook and getting a graphics package!!

Our new customers will also now land on our Welcome page. I LOVE it as it shows that BB Butts Diapers has grown to so much beyond diapers! Have a look at the images and please leave some feedback. Is this look aesthetically pleasing to the customer eye?

Also different this time, we are going to utilize BOTH Facebook and the Blog. To enter you need to:

BB Butts Goals for 2012

New years should always be started with goals.

I am not so much a resolution gal (who wants to break it and fail right away? Hardly seems like a good way to start a year) but I am going to be goal orientated this year with BB Butts Diapers. I have a few in mind right off the top, both short term achievable and long term as well.

#1. Post to this blog at least MONTHLY! This is one very neglected part of the face of BB Butts.

#2 Increase my advertising presence. I have been researching some different avenues and recently made some advertising purchases. If you have any ideas I would love to hear them in your comments. A favourite blog that is huge, a networking group, something that has worked for you in the past. Heck, even something that bombed for you to save me some head banging on the proverbial wall.

#3 Make my Facebook page more interactive for my fans and have opportunities to give back to them in that way. I have started to post a daily "Mom Challenge". My goal is to have a new challenge for each day of this year. If you have an awesome idea, I would love it if you sent me the idea through the contact form on the page.

#4 Get the main website fully stocked. It too is an area that suffers greatly. With so much turnover, especially during market and trade show season it is difficult to find time to do it all. This is something that I need to set as a priority to at least get some items for each category on line.

#5 5000 Facebook fans in 2012. Please share our page. Share our giveaways. The more successful we are the more celebrations we can have!

So there are 5 neat and tidy GOALS.

Do you have goals for this year?
