Well the first week of the boutique being open was actually pretty good. Business has been slow but I can say I was not surprised plus January is not a big shopping month plus many are still looking for sales. So I mainly decided to open in January to really get the word out and build may customer base. I happy to say that I have almost 300 likes on the boutique Facebook page (yay!!), gotten a few on Pinterest and Twitter so I am still working hard and keeping focused. I do have a few offers from people wanting to help with the marketing and the social media aspects of the business so I am doing a couple of interviews and feeling those people out.
I am so glad that I kept down business costs and didn’t take out a loan because I so did not need any extra stress on having to start paying anything back. I am looking forward to the 2nd week to see how that goes. I am constantly adding new fashions to the site and I just got a new partnership with a skin care company to start offering their products so pretty excited about that. Running a business is not easy but I am just glad that I did it.
Until next week
Wish me Luck
