Since participating in an Etsy Boot Camp a couple of years ago, I find the lingering residual of the exercise inspires me to create a new THANK YOU package perk as a ‘limited’ edition offer.
I wrote about perking packages in a post last May. I use bits-n-pieces of things I collect to create some of the incentive perks I include with my Etsy Shoppe orders. I enjoy creating little ‘thank you’ gifts for my Hide A Heart customers, and this year is no exception.
Tips for Treasure Perks
I think I’ve finally figured a few things out about ‘perking’ packages I can confidently pass on to you.
- Keep it light–if the treasure perk is too bulky or heavy, the postage is going to increase, which will definitely reduce your profit
- Treasure perk with something that doesn’t take too much time to create-don’t forget, time=$
- Watch the cost-don’t forget, you are trying to make a profit which adding a little ‘perk’ as a thank you to your customer, but if the ‘treasure’ is too valuable–well, you get the picture
- Testing the perk value-would you want to receive it?
I began thinking about my ‘treasure perk’ a few months ago. I was tidying up my work space and noticed a few jewelry-making pieces that had been tucked away in a box of odds and ends
A Treasure Perk
So, I made myself a cute little heart-charm to add to one of my computer USB flash drives as a way to tell them apart. Viola!
Looking forward to tucking a treasure perk into every Etsy Shoppe Hide A Heart order this year. Get your’s while they last!
