My best month of 2018 had been February so far where I reached 62 orders in 1 month. I have now just smashed that this month with a total of 87 orders!! This has brought my total up for the year to 211 orders!
The main reason for these boosted sales is a birthday card I designed to take the mick out of the new GDPR guidelines. I have sold a total of 39 of these this month! Which means it is now my best selling card!
Everyone has been going crazy for it, I have made personalised versions; thank you cards and good luck cards – which then made me create a Thanks card version of the original card. (It’s been popular with businesses to thank the whoever has helped them with the GDPR guidelines at work!)
I even had someone tweet about it!!! That’s the first time I have seen someone share and appreciate my design work on social media so I am absolutely buzzing.
As my sales have boosted so much this month and have been so high compared to what I ever imagined I have decided to up my sales target for the year to 1000 sales. It’s ambitious but I think if I carry on the way I am going I can achieve it.
I also decided to re-invest the money I made this month to start selling on another platform called Folksy which was worth it already as I have had a sale this past few days… A GDPR card of course! I have been thinking about selling on there for a while as they are just for the UK and the fees aren’t too high but wanted to wait till my sales were picking up again.
