We are now half way through our advanced level of the social media marketing course. Seems to be going well so far thanks to the great patience of Amanda and Alan. Really enjoyed learning about slide share last week and hope to use it in my business when I get a minute. Unfortunately that wasn't the case this week as it has been another busy week buying.
We saw two ranges for Autumn/Winter 2015 Yest which we have been selling successfully for three seasons, it's price and wearability makes it very commercial.

We have taken on a  new range of outerwear coming in next winter. Stylish well prices coats and jackets. Very exciting.

Deliveries are arriving daily with beautiful spring stock. 

Our New Childrenswear shop has already started selling some of the new summer stock.

Second day of SMM

Well survived the first day of the advanced Social Media Marketing last week and have really enjoyed this morning learning about slideshare, which I feel will be of huge benefit to my business. Also enjoying the beautiful view of the Menai Straights from the computer room and it even started snowing. Perfect!!

Not sure that I will ever be a huge blogger, but I suppose stranger things have happened.

Since our last session I have had a very busy week.
I spent Wednesday in Manchester buying for autumn/winter deliveries. The roadworks in Colwyn Bay and Queensferry were horrendous and added in total nearly 2 hours to our journey. Apart from that it was a very productive and beneficial day. All the ranges were extremely strong and I am very excited to have them in the shop.

We met two new Joseph Ribkoff employees one of whom, Shaun, was from Canada where their head office is based. It was lovely to meet them and gain from their experiences.
Shaun's wife has 8 shops in Canada and enjoyed hearing about some different ideas.

The other two brands we bought were very good on price and will be an asset to the business.

Day 1 of the Elevate Social Media Marketing level 2. 

Looking forward to producing a strategy to increase the awareness of the business on social media with Alan and Amanda.

How to blog.

This morning has been interesting looking at blogs both good and bad. Scary thought having to think of something interesting to write everyday.
