“You have a great selection of very useful products for our baby stages,” said Bridget
Thank YOU for spending some time on my website, and if you are reading this blog post that is an extra bonus!
I run my business from a studio / mini-warehouse set up in Cambridge; 99% of orders are processed through the website and I pack and send out on the overnight courier. 1% of the orders are from Waikato locals that pop into see me.
Of course everything is confidential with your order, and I really appreciate that you choose to shop with me. Sometimes I try and guess information while I am standing here packing your order. I make up little stories about where the parcels are going! Some have clues….
Eg: a customer that has recently found out she is pregnant might purchase:
|Belly Belt||Belly Band||Ginger Lozenge|
A customer that has an expanding bump might purchase:
|Zen Maternity Shorts||Glamour Dress||Maternity Tops|
A customer who is very close to her due date, and is packing her hospital bag in anticipation may purchase the following (these also apply to a mum that has arrived home with a newborn baby)
|Hydrogel Discs||Clip-on-Cami||Breast Pads|
A lady that is returning to work, or starting to introduce a bottle may purchase:
|Breast Pump||Formula Container||Sterilisation Bags|
Perhaps a customer that has been through these previous stages, and has an older baby, might return to our store to purchase equipment for the next stage:
|Solids Starter Set||Wipeable Bib||Bubble Bath|
Then sometimes, I can tell if the customer is actually the husband/dad who is purchasing for his special lady. Of course I’m making a mass generalisation when I say this. But other clues also include a request to gift wrap, and then a little message that he wants written on a card! So sweet! His order might be:
|Sexy Maternity Nightie||Hotmilk Bra||Pelvic Floor Toning|
(This blog post was based on mass generalisation, and trends that we have noticed. Not your actual order history)
