A New Name & A New Site
Think this picture may be a bit of a spoiler …
As mentioned in yesterday’s birthday post I do like to keep improving the blog and I have been hatching a few plans of how to move forward in the coming year. The good news is that all of the basics will be staying the same. The blog will still be providing totally free promotion of fabulous greeting cards, gifts and brands. This will be done however from a brand-new, self-hosted site at: www.cardandgiftnetwork.com. Over the Christmas break I will be (fingers-crossed) be moving the site away from our lovely blogger home to a shiny new website, full of possibilities. It’s a little scary but after four years we’ve got a little big and need something that will offer a few more options and give room for some new features.
One of the features that will be added to the new site is a trade directory for you to showcase your card and gift businesses. Retailers will be able to find great card and gift companies, and those companies will in turn be able to find suppliers to help their business grow. This will be an open space for anyone in or connected to the industry and I hope you will find it valuable … you can never have enough promotion right!
Now you could hardly have failed to notice the mentions of a new name ‘Card & Gift Network’ – after seemingly endless pondering this new name seemed a good fit for this next phase. Combining all the goodness of the blog, with a brand new trade directory and a few other bits and pieces that will be launched in 2014.
If all goes to plan the new site will be unveiled on 6th January 2014, but to be sure you are kept in the loop and can claim your spot in the directory join the mailing list at www.cardandgiftnetwork.com/community now.
Thank you for your support and I look forward to seeing you at our new website.
