More New Sets on the Way!
This week's blog will cover the latest sets available for pre-order, Cobi's new brochure, the latest sales, customer pics, a reminder about our popular loyalty programme and our Black Friday/Cyber Monday plans.
New Cobi Brochure
You'll start to see a mini-brochure in with your orders from this week. We grabbed a limited number of them during our visit to Cobi in Poland last week. They had created them for their US market and these were going spare. Please let us know what you think and maybe we'll create our own next year!
Black Friday/Cyber Monday (BFCM)
As most of you probably realise by now, I (Zoe) am not exactly a marketing guru and as such I have been putting off my decision as to what to do about the infamous BFCM which is next Friday.
If I'm completely honest, I am torn because I like to create weekly sales and offer discounts in addition to our loyalty programme - Panzer Points (more on that later) - when I feel inspired to, not because every other retailer is doing it!
I'm sure most of you are aware of general prices creeping up in various places the closer we get to BFCM, possibly in preparation for retailers to 'slash' prices and offer so-called bargains. But I have decided not to do that and will continue to run our weekly sales in the run up to Christmas. See our current SALES page here.
What I will do however, between now and Cyber Monday, is to invite customers to contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org and let me know if there is a particular set you have your eye on that isn't in the sale and you would love to get a discount on. This way, you hopefully won't end up buying something for the sake of a bargain that you might later regret. Any feedback on this approach is warmly welcomed!
