we've started a private FaceBook page
for our customers and I guess the obvious question is.... why? And there's more than one answer to this question, so here goes....
1- Facebook has once again changed their algorithym. What does that mean? Well... even though I am by no means an expert on this topic, here's the explanation as I understand it.
In response to a lot of the controversy generated during the election last year, FaceBook is making it much less likely that you will see posts created by businesses.... like us. And because it takes quite a bit of effort on our part to maintain the presence that we do on FaceBook, it's quite disappointing to think that it may all fall thru the cracks. So... we have created a closed and private group for customers who follow us. This means that only those who are granted access to our group will see our posts, BUT, because our members have joined our group by choice, they will automatically see ALL of our posts.
2- YOU get the opportunity to post pictures, comments or questions on this page! How cool is that, right?
Maybe you've just completed a bag and just want to share it with someone! You could show it to your hubby or your neighbor, but let's face it, they very likely don't understand the work or the love you've put into it! But what if you could upload a picture and voila... could get immediate accolades? Would that be awesome?
Or what if you are in the midst of sewing and have a question about a step or a supply item? You could email me, but it might be after hours, or I could be away from home or out of the country and unavailable to answer the question! But what if you could pose the question to this group and get an almost immediate answer to your question since there's bound to be someone in this group who has already made the bag in question? Wouldn't that be great?
So... does this mean we're abandoning our old FaceBook page? Not at all! How could we ever turn our back on 196,000+ loyal followers? But out of necessity we do feel its time to change some of our emphasis to a platform where we can be sure our message is actually heard! We'll continue to post on our FaceBook business page... though perhaps not as often as we once did. Our Wednesday videos will still be there and we'll still post announcements & specials there, but if you want to be sure to actually SEE all of those things, I would suggest you give our new FaceBook group page a try!
So... are you ready to give it a whirl?
Just click HERE to give our new group a try. You'll need to answer two quick questions for me (to prove you're netiher a bot or a stalker) but I promise I'll approve your request as soon as possible! And thanks in advance for your understanding!
