Default Happy Monday JIC Reps!

How is everyone doing? Any successes to share? Any failures you'd like to talk about? Maybe we can help make it a success next time? My flyer campaign was not successful. I don't think I got enough out. Next time I am going to print more and just drive and put them up anywhere and everywhere.

I tried doing a giveaway on Facebook and got ONE entry and share. Not quite the exposure I was hoping for.

I got over 90 likes on my fan page from having a contest. If you have a fan page try using an app called Giveaway tab it's free to use.

Question

Hi, Everyone! I have to admit I'm a bit disappointed. I thought these would sell very well and they are a great product. I have tried offering discounts many times but still no sales. I guess the economy is just too bad right now....

Blinky :-)

I'll look into that. I hadn't heard of it before. I have 85 likes on my page so I had thought I'd get more entries and shares. I was quite sad.

I had two sales my first day and nothing since. With it being the holidays I had hoped more people would want them for gifts. I think instead the fact that it's already past the cutoff for Christmas delivery and the incredibly long processing time is turning people off.

You're right about that, Sarramy! I actually don't want to advertise them as Christmas gifts now because I know they won't arrive in time. The company let us down there big time! And that's a shame because these are really nice candles and I know more people would love them if they tried them, but as you said, they don't want to wait for three weeks or more to get them. Obviously, JIC was not prepared for the response they got!

Yes, there have been shipping delays. However, any company that handpours their own candles will have a longer ship time. The candles are poured and have to cure. I know they are getting a handle on the lag times in shipping. I can't wait to see what else they have in store for us after the new year!

I'm not getting down on the company at all! I love the products! I'm just a bit disappointed that sales haven't been better and that opportunities for this holiday season have been lost.

I was just posting that for general information. Shipping delays are always frustrating for everyone. I have left companies before over it, but I agree with you, I love these products and the owners have been very upfront about the delays and what they are doing to fix it. My sales haven't broken any records this season either, but I am going to learn from it and make it a great 2014!
