We held a live, in-person Grand Opening for our online Quixtar store yesterday here at out home. It was a lot of fun, and went very well. We learned a little more about each of the product lines, and got to play with and taste some stuff.
It makes logical sense to us that an online business deserves an online Grand Opening too. Plus we need about three more clients to meet our goal. Here's what we've decided to do:
Because of the nature of the Internet, we don't think it would be convenient for people to have a virtual meeting for a small window of an hour or so, like we did at our home. So the online version of our Grand Opening, is going to run for one week.
In order for our guests (that's you!) to browse around out product lines, you can go to our website:
Now the fun of a Grand Opening is trying the stuff out, right? On our website there is a link that says "Contact me". If you look around and see something you'd like to try, use that button to send us a message. We don't have samples of every product, but we have some. We can send off some samples to you. Or if you don't know where to start, just send us a message through the "Contact me" link and we'll send a little variety of samples and information for you.
We're trying to make this as similar as possible to our real life Grand Opening, so that means a door prize too. Again, we're using that little "Contact Me" button as our way to know who 'attended' our opening. So even if you just look around, send us a message to be entered into the door prize drawing.
My blog has been neglected this month due to my novel writing efforts, but I plan to write a short update daily (or at least every other day) with some of the interesting information about the products and the business.
