As we near the reality of hitting the 5,000 FB likes, we are needing to finalize how we are going to the do this $5 sale. We have some ideas on how we want to work it and we want to make sure it is fair for everyone. As a business we have some considerations to make. We can't afford to sell out our entire stock or we would be put out of business for 3 - 4 months since that is how long it takes to restock a color. It would also have a severe financial impact if we had to do that. The thought of that is scary. So we have decided that we will have to adjust our inventory to half for each color in stock and once those sell out, they are off the table for the remainder of the sale. This way, we don't risk closing our virtual doors.
We will also give advance notice for the sale so that there is plenty of time for everyone who wants to order. Lastly we are looking at instilling maximum purchases. The reason being because we are a small business, we do not have the stock of a major polish company. We want to have this sale as a thank you to all our valued customers and want everyone who wants a polish to be able to get at least one at the sale price. Here is where your opinion would help. I am thinking of a cap of 4 polishes per person. Juan thinks we should cap at 2 polishes. I say that just sucks, I want 4. You know I will probably win this one! LOL!
So what do you guys think of our placing a maximum per order? Do you have any other ideas that would make this a successful and fair sale?
I want to finalize all the details of how the sale will work, so that when the time comes we are prepared and ready and there are no surprises. I would love your feedback on what you would like to see during this sale, since it is for you after all!
