TRUNK SHOW PROS AND CONS
First a huge a** thanks to all of you who came to my very first Virtual Trunk Show the other night.
To say it went off without a hitch would be an understatement and a big fat lie.😂😂
But....overall it went well if you don't count the fact that for more that have of the show nobody could see the items I was posting, Ya know the ones where the ordering takes place.😳
Luckily I was LIVE showing each piece but still "how the heck do I order" right?
Then there was the little issue of me not seeing any comments. Whaaaat the heck. I was feeling some kind feels😔, thinking man nobody is asking questions, nobody even wants to answer the question I asked about where they're from......I knew I had people watching because that was one thing I could see. But I kept going anyways (secretly knowing my mom, aunt and BFF would buy something).
Soooo, as I was wrapping up I got a phone call from my aunt. Mystery solved (kinda).....she every so sweetly said, " um, sweetie nobody can see your post", then I got a text stating "people are commenting"......whaaaat!!!!
I was horrified but kept my cool I think I only cussed once or twice.....maybe more who knows, who cares.
I honestly had no idea what to do at this time. So I thanked everyone for spending their time with me for the last hour and then so politely asked if they could hang on a little bit more. You guys are AWESOME, let me just say that. Most stayed on and we worked through some of the issues, thanks so much for helping me out.
I reposted everything after the second posting, because unanimously I was told that was the last post they saw. I asked if they would like the post if they saw it coming thru so would know it was working or not.
The likes started coming in....🥳🥳 But I was still struggling with figuring out where were the da** comments...like 49 of them.
Finally, after another glass of wine and total support from everybody who stayed on I found them.🍷
Things I learned:
My customers are the greatest humans ever....and very patient.
Things can still work out even when it turns into a sh*t show.
I now have a better understanding on how to do these virtual trunk shows....at least I hope I do.
Even through the chaos I enjoyed doing this show and will definitely be doing more.
Shop in your yoga pants, PJ pants, or no pants….I don’t care
Drink endless amounts of wine (because you don’t have drive anywhere after)
Eat your dinner while you shop
Secretly shop while at work or while hubs is chatting about sports or something…
Don’t have to leave the house
Don’t have to fight the crowds
FREE ticket to the show
Get first access to one of a kind pieces
There may be glitches
Host may not know what the HELL she’s doing
Not a “perfect” time for you….luck’s on your side though you can go into the event page later and view all the jewelry, you just risk your favorite piece being already snatched up
Not being fast enough to claim your fav piece of jewelry (especially if only one of a kind or limited inventory)
I believe the Pros out weigh the Cons, don’t you?
