Just Sold An Order For 300 Cards

Posted by: JC Findley on 05/08/2013 - 7:45 PM

That is one I did not see coming. 12 boxes of 25....

Not sure what someone is doing with that many unless they are using them for some sort of invite or perhaps reselling them on a wholesale basis but regardless, it made for a nice day.

I'm thinking a veterans association is sending them out to 300 of their members...

'tis a shame you don't know who ordered them - wonder if they are going to be invitations to a Marine's wedding - or perhaps invites to a Marine Corps Birthday Ball on November 10.

 

Posted by: JC Findley on 05/08/2013 - 9:17 PM

Thank yall...

Yupp, I was thinking Marine Corps wedding myself.

 

Posted by: Greg Jackson on 05/08/2013 - 9:23 PM

Congrats on the sale, JC. Another event that comes to mind might be a recruit graduation ceremony at Parris Island or the one on the left-hand coast.

Nice JC. Hope it continues. I used to make sales like this when full color printing greeting cards was in its hayday. All it takes is for a person your customer sends the cards to to get the same idea and make another order.

I just sold a greeting card too. My first sale since I started here in January. About a couple weeks ago I started shooting JPEG, so I uploaded one of those image and what do you know?! Yup! Though I have to admit that I also changed the pricing on my cards.

Like I always say, pennies make dollars.

 

Posted by: JC Findley on 05/09/2013 - 9:03 PM

That is the other thing about it; 300 people will be getting a sample of my work.

 

Posted by: Shane Bechler on 05/09/2013 - 9:09 PM

Congratulation JC!

 

Posted by: Cricket Hackmann on 05/09/2013 - 10:20 PM

Woohoo! Congratulations, JC -- that is great news! And the best news is that 300 people will receive a sample of your work, and information on how to acquire more! :-)

 

Posted by: Michelle Frizzell-Thompson on 05/09/2013 - 10:37 PM

And some people say cards don't sell! HA! This is beyond an awesome order! Congratulations! I wonder if you set some type of FAA record??

 

Posted by: Frank J Casella on 05/10/2013 - 9:08 AM

That's right, JC, not only will people get samples of your work, but you're selling the hamburger way ... repetition and duplication.

In other words, when you're on FAA you can sell the original ( one big hamburger ), but you're better to sell museum quality copies ( many small hamburgers ).

And when you sell greeting cards the correct way, it puts this concept into "fast food" mode.

There was a separate thread not too long ago I think you started about another site for selling greeting cards. Instead of that, I think FAA needs to promote greeting cards more, or create a separate site like they did for Instagram prints.

... It gets new buyers to make a "safe" purchase with spending pocket money on a greeting card. Once they see the quality of the cards, this could remove buying reluctance on prints.
