Happy 6th Birthday to Us! Yep, Card and Gift Network is Six.
We’re taking a break from the Christmas features today with the annual birthday post. Today Card and Gift Network is six, the celebration is on!
Since the website first went live in 1st December 2009, I’ve published just shy of 1,200 features, on greetings cards, gifts, stationery and the people that make them; not to mention several posts on online marketing and online selling.
As is customary with the blog’s birthday post I really want to thank you for being part of the blog. For stopping by and looking at the pretty cards and gifts and for submitting your own designs to be featured. Please keep it up in the year ahead, I’m always pleased to see new products and am here to help you share them with the world.
What’s Next Now Card and Gift Network is Six?
So what’s next for Card and Gift Network? Well I’ve been redesigning the site over the last few months and I’m sure I’ll be making a few more additions and tweaks over the Christmas break too, but I do have a few other birthday wishes in the back of my mind.
Showcase Your Products and Your Business.
I’m happy to report that the seriously overdue Trade Directory is being beta tested right now. It’s working as well as I hoped and will be launched officially in the New Year.
More Resources & Better Resources
Alongside improving the site to offer you more options to promote your business to the Card & Gift Network audience. I am keen to keep developing and improving the resources available on the website. Initially resources will focus on marketing and online selling, but if there’s something you’d like to see included please get in touch.
In 2016 I’d also like to see more products showcased from across the globe. To date I’ve shared products from the UK, USA, Canada, Australia and Europe, but I don’t want it to stop there. We’re lucky enough to have a global audience here at Card and Gift Network and I want to make sure the products and companies featured are also sourced from across the globe. So wherever you are, please know that you’re very welcome to be part of our online community.
Have Your Say
My last wish for the year ahead is to here from you the Card and Gift Network community. What would you like to see on the site? Have your say and help me keep improving right up till birthday seven.
That’s it with wishing. One last time, for this year at least, thank you for your support.
