In the Package

15 Nov

I did a post on The Package recently explaining how I package my items and I thought some of you would be interested in the details of what is inside the package. One of the first things I do when someone purchases an item is make a sales receipt in QuickBooks.  I use the information from PayPal -name, address, ect- to fill in the receipt.  I started using QuickBooks for my bookkeeping last year and I love it! It is pretty big for my little business, but it makes tax time so much easier! When I started using it I envisioned keeping track of my inventory and all that, but I haven’t figured out how to do that yet.  At least not without doing a lot of extra work.  I use Quickbooks for both my eBay and Etsy sales.

Recently I started sending along the thank-you cards.  I read several places on Etsy that people seem to like this idea.  I have gotten several positive comments on eBay since I started including them.  I made my own cards using my photos.  They are cactus flowers of course, since I am from Arizona.

This one I use for eBay orders: And this one for Etsy orders: I made them different so I could just grab one instead of having to look. 🙂 I have my store name and address printed on the back.

I also send a business card with the order.  A couple of weeks ago I changed the calendar on the back to 2013.  It’s hard to believe the year has gone so quickly!  My business cards are the same for both my sites except for the address, so I have to make sure I send the right one.  I have the stacks at certain places on my desk so that helps -just don’t anyone mix them up please! 🙂  For Etsy orders right now I am actually sending two cards.  The regular one has the coupon code on the back and right now I am also sending one with the calendar on the back.  No one seems to be using the coupon codes, should I just stop sending them?

The tract The Significance of the Christian Woman’s Veiling, I send with all of my hair net orders unless I know the customer ordered before.  Then I send a different tract.  I get the veiling tract and some other tracts from Christian Light Publications.  I don’t get a lot of feedback from the tracts and what I do get is usually positive.  The last item -or the first, however you want to look at it- is your hair net, gift bag, or towel that you ordered!

Thank-you for shopping at My Desert Deals! Have a great day!
