April features update for Hello Pretty's designers.

Hello Pretty frequently sends out an update to let our designers know what's cooking, what's new on the site and where to find it.

This is the update email for April.

And just like that, it's April. Easter's around the corner, but unlike the bunny, we won't make you hunt for your treats, because who has the time?
 

 
Whoa, you guys. S*** just got real. We've introduced a third plan to cater for those of you who've found that you don't have enough hours in the day to keep up with the admin.

The Serious Plan includes product management, advertising on Hello Pretty, and more. Whaaat. Find out more here.

If you want in, we're offering a berzerk 50% discount off the purchase of a 3 month bundle for the Serious plan purchased in April.
 
 
We're privileged, and beyond excited, to have the crazy smart & ridiculously good-looking Menno writing a series of articles for us on our blog. He's dishing out wisdom on running your small business & how to get the most out of your brand. Have a look at his first article, Start a mailing list - build relationships - make more sales.
 

 
Buyer FAQs / Help Page
This doesn't strictly concern you guys, but we're guessing you also have to deal with shoppers asking questions you've answered a zillion times before. If customers have a question about their purchase on Hello Pretty, point them to the shopper FAQ here: https://hellopretty.co.za/help/shoppers
 

 
R6 price increase from DCB
Inflation. It's not just for balloons. The cost of DCB's courier services has increased by R6 to R86. As always, the entire cost goes directly to DCB - we don't add anything on for ourselves. You don't pay costs or commission on courier fees when a customer uses the courier option. If you're new here, have a look at this help page where we explain how the integrated courier system works.

Customers like using this option, so please consider making use of it.
 

 
International shipping. Again. #sorrynotsorry
No monthly update mail is complete without the part where we get on your case! :-)

Over a third of Hello Pretty's (quite impressive, if we say so ourselves) website traffic is from overseas shoppers. You're costing yourself sales if you haven't filled in international postage options (not to mention frustrating customers into leaving the website). If you don't know what to charge to post your pretty things overseas, we lay it all out very clearly on this page. Please make sure you offer international postage options. The SA Post Office is good for this, and in many cases it might not cost more than R50 or so.
 
 
Until next time!
The Hello Pretty / Hello Man Team.

Hello Pretty co-founder. Curiouser and curiouser. Drupal girl with the itchiest feet you ever saw. Looks like one of those rap guys' girlfriends.
