Daily upkeep

I want to share a design I found in one of my fellow shop owner’s stores that really says it all for Easter:
Studio 490

I moved my yoga stuff from my custom section to it’s own section after all. Then while I was on the site I decided to double-check all the descriptions to see if I wanted to change anything. For the first time I noticed that the columns weren’t even! How had I missed that? I realized it was because some of the product labels were longer then others and if the long ones were in the first row it created a gap. SO….I went through all 32 product pages and moved a couple things around per section. Kind of like cleaning out drawers!

One of the other shop owners sent me a link to a great site that had a forum thread about conversion; Webmasters World. I read through that whole thing (really interesting) and ended up joining the site. Something else to keep up on!

New "not finished yet" design

Mostly today I’ve been working on 2 new sections: “no spam” and “not finished yet”. I thought the no spam would be a hit with anyone who works with computers because it certainly annoys me!
And I liked the not finished yet because it could have a lot of different meanings. I put it on an apron and said, “If mom (or dad) is wearing this you don’t need to ask if dinner is ready yet.”
And if it’s on children’s clothes it can remind you they aren’t miniature adults, they are little kids and have a lot of growing and learning to do, so have patience with them. They’re “not finished yet!” On adult clothes it could mean you consider yourself to be a work in progress or as a Christian, a Christian in the making. Either way you are on the journey, but still have a long way to go!

I’ve decided people with just one product or theme have an easier time promoting then I do. I’ve tried sending my “I am a Gift from God” section to adoption agencies and mother’s sites, “no breeding” to Humane Societies and Animal Shelters, ‘no meat” to vegetarian groups, yoga to yoga and wellness sites, “no body fat” to fitness sites and groups, “no cancer” to all the different support groups, “no bad hair days” to wig stores and hair dressers, “no smoking” to sites that try to help stop it, “smoke out” events, and on and on. I had intended to just keep doing one section at a time until there was no where else I could find to send them to and then move on, but that is really impossible. I’ll create a new design and feel like I have to move with that one because it’s timely and then something else happens and whichever promotion I was working on gets moved to my to-do list!

I will never run out of things to do!

Taking stock at 3 months

I want to do a section in the store of all the sites I like to affiliate them. When I talk about the different ones on this blog I realize a lot of people only look at one or two days, so these sites may not get seen. I re-read my entire blog from day one to see which sites I’ve talked about and if I want to put them in my store.

Wow! It’s only been 3 months, but have I learned a lot!! When I look back at some of the stuff I tried and some of the things I didn’t know in the beginning, I’m amazed!

It was also amazing to see all the ads I came up with. Pretty creative if I do say so myself! :) Of course I have a long way to go and a thousand ideas to try…but, one step at a time!

John’s trying to teach me how to use tonight. He’s very patient!

I Love Yoga clothing & gift line

I did the yoga section mostly to take flyers into my yoga classes. I love the look of the design with the products I chose! Since it’s not a “givitup” I ended up sticking them in my custom section. If they do well I might go ahead and put them on the storefront. The colors go – just not the theme.

I wrote for a description, “People who love yoga love to tell others about it. Let online store givitup, start the discussion!”

Late nights

Sometimes I get sleepy in the afternoon sitting here reading and typing and I think, “I really need to get to bed before midnight tonight!” Especially now that the sun is coming up earlier which always wakes me up – and if I’m awake – I get up!

But, somehow around 10:30 when I post this blog and ping it and check my emails and stats one last time, I find an email I need to answer, or one that leads me to look at something else. Tonight I was also labeling new items in my Custom section (CUTE yoga things! I love them!) and it’s already 12:02 a.m….and I’m not sleepy now!

Great Easter stores

I just found out this coupon is good for anyone! So if you spend $20.00 or more by Tuesday, March 28th at midnight and use the code: DULLSLEGEND when you are checking out it will take $5.00 off! So go shop!

With everything in bloom here in North Carolina it feels like Easter and rebirth and fresh starts! I wanted to share a couple sites I like with great Easter designs.

This first one Keepsake Arts has a large variety of colorful and cute items.

This next one is probably one of my favorite stores: Shirt Gift Shop
I especially like the “It’s my first Easter” t-shirts for babies.

Holiday Uniques has a darling Easter section too, you just want to pick these designs up and hug them!

I’ve got, which has items to remind people we are all gifts from God.

And of course I think my “no guilt” items say it all. Because of Christ and His sacrifice for us we are cleansed of guilt!

If you want to check out all the Easter designs at CafePress, here you go: Easter 1 Easter 2 Easter 3

CafePress is easy to use!

I made my first order from CafePress late last night. It’s great to shop at midnight!!
The shopping cart was amazing. I was so pleased how easy and fast it was. It’s really put together well. And then they emailed me a $5.00 coupon to use in the future and I could give them emails of two friends to send a coupon to too. It’s not often it’s so pleasant to part with money!

I bought the two college shirts I designed for friends graduating from high school soon. That will be fun to give them. I know just about all Brittany wears at college is either college or sorority shirts.

New Sale section

I created a “sale items” section today. I had thought about doing it since day one, but wanted to wait and build up inventory and decide what was working and what wasn’t. My idea is to put items that I’m going to do away with in there for about a month and then they will be gone. If I sell anything from that section I will only make about a dollar per item, so they are about as low as I can go!

I sent out my country classifieds today on my “I am a Gift From God” section. And I finally asked John to help me change all the designs from “I am a Gift of God” to “from God.” I’m not sure how it happened, but I created the section name and all the descriptions to say from and the designs to say of! I kept telling myself it didn’t really matter because I hated to ask John to take the time to re-do it. Finally, though, I couldn’t stand it anymore! It didn’t take too long to fix and it is so much better.

"No fear"

I sent my state free classifieds out today about “no fear”:
”With everything going on in the world; from bird flu to terrorism to drugs, crime and natural disasters, Americans have been living in a shadow of fear. With online store, givitup's, "no fear" t-shirts, hoodies, sweatshirts, caps, buttons, magnets and more, you can show the world that you are ready to step out bravely and experience life again. Start the trend! Get America back where it's meant to be!”

All about t-shirts

John and I went out to dinner and shopping tonight. Everywhere I looked in the clothing store (at least in the Junior and Men sections) were t-shirts with sayings on them! I need to figure out how to get the word out that I can print anything people can think of too.
It is certainly a popular trend! It’s also like reading cards in a store; you gravitate toward the clever and funny ones.

I majored in Textiles & Clothing in college with a concentration in Fashion Merchandising. I remember when studying the history of fashion we talked about t-shirts. How they both made people “belong” and “stand out.” The first written t-shirts were usually sports names. Then of course there are the school names and place names, all giving people a feeling of belonging to a group. Later came the “statements” which set them a part. Their view of the world or opinion about something. The hip joke that made them cool. The rebellion against the establishment.

Now, while they are popular still for both of those reasons, the casual life style of the 21st century also plays a big part in their popularity.

And a lot of them do make you laugh!

Shopkeeper Sale

There is a shopkeeper sale going on right now where we can stock up on our own stuff.
With graduation coming up I designed some stuff in my custom shop to order and put aside for gifts.

Then I answered a forum invitation to join a yahoo group of mostly CafePress shopkeepers. Another new place to explore and learn about!!

What people are searching for

I find it so interesting looking at what people searched for and seeing how they came up with either my blog or store!!
I already mentioned in a previous post about the “meat woman” coming up with my “no meat” section and landing on a woman’s t-shirt.

Today I was going through some of them and really got a kick out of these:
“tea totaling on the wagon” which matched up to this description on my “no alcohol” section:

“Giving up alcohol for New Year's or Lent? Having an alcohol free party or event? On the wagon? Let everyone know you are "tea totaling" with a stylish "No Alcohol" product from givitup.” I was number one, right above the Welcome Wagon!

Another one was typed in “whining beer mug”. The first site to come up was a rugby song that had “Why is my beer mug empty?” and “Why are they whining?” in it. I was next with my “no whining” section which includes a mug.

Then there was the lady who typed in “mom starting own business in Toronto” and came up with my blog. Google picked up on my starting my own business of course, but, then a post about my mom giving me advice and then an article I added that my husband wrote about the internet which mentioned that his business is a franchise who’s home base is in Toronto! I used to think people had to type in exact phrases and that’s what google matched up. But, apparently that’s not always true!

New "I am a Gift from God" Clothing Line

I wanted to do another section of kids’ clothes with the words, “I am a Gift from God” on them. I asked John first thing this morning to help me create the design with the idea of matching the “My Daddy Dressed Me Today” and “I Dressed Myself Today” sections in their styles.
As we were trying to get the rainbow colors to come up suddenly the streaks of color kind of swooped across the page behind the words like a rainbow arc. We thought that looked neat, so John spent the morning messing with getting it perfect. Unfortunately when I put the finished design on the products it didn’t look good! So we totally scratched that and went back to the rainbow colored letters. Finished the section at 5pm! I don’t know how all of this stuff can take so long!! But, it looks good! Check it out:

“Give these to everyone you know! Aren't your children gifts from God? Remind yourself of that everytime you see them in their cute givitup apparel. Tell your friends and family you consider them gifts from God with gifts that say so! Make them feel special! And how about yourself? The Bible says you are His treasure! You are special!”

I did prayer journals, tiles, tile boxes and different color cap sleeve t-shirts for the first time. And I have all the choices of buttons and magnets thinking they would be nice to hand out to friends or groups to let them know you think they are special. Then I did a few items for people to wear themselves to remember everyday that even though the universe is vast, God loves us like we are the only one in it!

What's the bloody problem?

Today I got involved in the CafePress forums (after checking all four of my email addresses.) I usually click on “show me what’s new since the last time I was on” which keeps it down to between 100 and 400 postings. Then I skim the titles and only read what I think is really interesting or helpful. Today there was a lot of both of those and I ended up posting to three or four threads.

Finally I read the online USA Today and saw an article about the Australian Tourism ad in Britain getting banned because it used the word bloody. Which I thought was funny because I thought all the Brits used that word including the royals. (But, what do I know.) What really made me stop was the article said, “But Tourism Australia is having the last laugh. In the days since British newspapers reported the flap, downloads to its site have more than tripled from 13,000 to 50,000.

I couldn’t resist creating some products and sending this classified ad out to Sydney and also put it on Craigslist and on

"2 countries divided by a common language. Australia and Britain are at it! Who's right? Who cares? If you do, show us with givitup apparel!Online store, givitup, has dozens of items from t-shirts, hoodies, sweatshirts, caps, buttons and magnets to bags and teddy bears which allow you to show the Brits you just don't see the problem! Visit or go straight to the section: "

So that left me just enough time to read two ezines I’ve been wanting to.
Which led me to join photo bucket. I put that aside then to study further because I think I will have use for it…. As soon as I know how to use it!

This is pretty much how a day in the life of an online storeowner goes. You start on your list of things to do first thing in the morning and go off on a bunch of tangents. It reminds me of my days exploring Paris. I would have a cup of coffee in the hotel room, stuff a croissant in my pocket, grab a map and hit the street planning on going from say The Bastille to Montmartre, but somehow on the journey I would see something interesting down this side street which would lead me to a market down that side street and on and on until an entire day went by not at all how I planned, but so much more interesting! And didn’t I learn and see lots!!

Article Submissions

I really want to start writing articles! If only I had time! Since John writes an Internet article every month for one of our local papers I’ve been sending his into article submission sites. So I know how to do it! I found a new site today that accepts articles and sent 17 of his to them. Their site was the slowest one I’ve ever been on in my life! (So I won’t tell you which one it was.) Seriously, I’m the type who stands and taps my foot impatiently while waiting for coffee to heat in the microwave! If I weren’t so persistent, I would have just stopped after one article! Some of the sites I’ve sent his to are: GO Articles, About Article Wise, Submit Articles free, Free Articles and Ezine Hub. Each one is just a tiny bit different. Some you just slap the article in there and others you have to come up with key words and then write a synopsis.

High on my list of things to do is write my own! I have a folder of things I’ve written, but they are mostly stories, devotions, Sunday School lessons and parenting articles. Nothing I can tie into my shop so I will have to start from scratch. I’ll let you see what I come up with.

Free 'Super Forum Tips' e-book

I write a monthly column for one of our local weekly papers about parenting a college age kid. It’s been a lot of fun and for this last one I tied in my My Space experiences. For the first time the editor added after my name that I run an online store givitup at and write a daily blog (and this address)! So that was neat to start tying this all together!

It’s almost time to send the free classifieds again. I really see no traffic on my statcounter from them and have debated stopping. But, as long as it’s not hurting anything I guess I’ll continue a while longer. I hate to not try.

One thing I do get a lot of traffic from is forums! And I know when I’m reading an answer that is interesting I almost always click on their URL to at least see their site.
I mentioned a great book on forums called Forum Super Tips by Harvey Segal when I first started my blog. It’s a good read and you can download your free copy of Segal's e-book here.

Random thoughts

I haven’t had as much time to really work on my store this week with my daughter home. It feels really strange and like I may be getting out of the swing of it.
I’m very anxious to get started on my “Fruits of the Spirit” designs. Either as a second store or sections in the existing store. But, I haven’t had time yet. I want that one to have it’s own blog, so I’ve been preparing that in Word a little. (I like to have several days written ahead incase something happens so I can post every day.)

This was a little strange! I was looking at my statcounter and when I see they did a search I always like to pull it up to see what they were searching for. Someone typed in meat women! Now, I could understand “meet women.” Maybe they misspelled it (I hope), but meat women!! Kind of makes you wonder….

Great CafePress stores

I don’t usually have the time to do this, but I browsed some other CafePress stores today. Of course there are thousands, but even so there are a lot that I am so impressed with.
A lot of artists and graphic designers have shops and the creativity is amazing.
laffstore has a little bit of everything, but I especially love their angel section and they have great Christmas cards. lollicakes has some of the most charming designs. They have kids clothes and moms to be shirts, but also a really nice Valentine section that could be worn year round. Their stuff makes me smile. lekkerbride has all the wedding party outfits and fun wedding theme items. There are a lot of wedding related products in CafePress, but lekker bride has one of the best selections. And of course the sites I have listed on my shop as favorites: maryostore has beautiful animal designs, tinycitizens has very clever baby things and peacockcards literally has everything. This is your one stop-shopping site! Neat things! Also johnsonfineart has absolutely beautiful greeting cards, journals and framed prints in different sizes. Very impressive!
OK, sending you to other stores besides mine may not be a smart move on my part, but they are great stores that deserve to be looked at and enjoyed. So, enjoy!

Small business poll

I saw this poll on’s Small Business site:

Poll Results

About Poll
What's the best thing about running a home-based business?

Being able to set your own schedule.

Not having to commute anywhere.

Being your own boss.

Being able to work in jammies or jeans if you feel like it.

Being able to spend more time with family.

I had to laugh at the setting your own schedule one. Almost daily I will see one little thing to “tweak” and end up an hour later still messing with it. I’ve always been a huge list maker. I actually have lists of lists. I remember when I had my daughter and was on maternity leave from my then full time job, I couldn’t believe how the day escaped me! And I felt like I was getting so little done that I had planned! My mom said, “Just list one thing, then list “baby”, then list another thing, then “baby” etc. etc.”

That’s the way it is with a small business. It needs lots of your time. Anything else you get done is bonus!

If it's not one thing it's six others!

I read in a forum that in order to have the statcounter on the shopping cart page you should put it in the footer of your site. I had been thinking about how nice it would be to see if people actually got to the shopping cart and decided the shipping was too high or the process too hard…or whatever. So I put the statcounter in the footer – and then started getting doubles in my report! So I spent about an hour taking all the individual page’s statcounters out! As my mother is so fond of saying, “If it’s not one thing it’s six others!”

Then I was about a half a week late on classified state ads, so I did those on “no cancer”. I also sent out about 40 emails to vegetarian organizations with my “no meat” section again. I think I’m about through with that.

Custom t-shirt order!

I got another order today! A good friend of mine emailed me asking if I would do a “no more accidents” cap t-shirt for her teen-age accident-prone daughter. I had it up and running in about 30 minutes. The sky really is the limit on what you can think of for the givitup theme!

Internet Marketing Effectiveness


I wanted to share an article my husband wrote for a local newspaper about internet marketing. He is an Internet Business Consultant and has been loads of help to me.

Internet Marketing Effectiveness

With most small businesses, money is tight, and spent with the utmost thought and care. As in other areas of our business, marketing can either swallow up hard earned resources with little effect or can propel a business farther than imagined, depending on the execution. Marketing your business on the internet is in many ways simpler and arguably much less expensive than more traditional marketing media, but has its own set of considerations. In a recent article we briefly discussed Search Engine Optimization and Linking. Some of the other more popular ways to market on the internet include: Paid Inclusion, Directory Listing, Affiliate Programs, and Email Campaigns all of which have particular strengths and limitations. The bottom line for marketing of any persuasion is cost effectiveness; and measuring, interpreting and acting on the results most often make the difference between a successful marketing effort and a wasted expenditure or cost overrun.

Fortunately, measuring marketing effectiveness is very easy to tackle in the internet space. Site statistics reports are readily available on-line and virtually real-time, providing information such as: actual number of mouse clicks, unique visitors, and/or repeat visitors, geographic location, time of day, visitor's previous website (referral page), internet service provider, operating system...(you get the idea} all effortlessly collected, compiled and presented so that you can know exactly who/where/when/how often, and even how long your potential customers are visiting each portion of your site. Such site statistics packages are available through your developer or can be found by on-line search and usually a small subscription fee.

Simply increasing the number of visitors to your website is usually not the final objective however. If you have a walk-in store, you probably have a rough idea (at least seat of the pants) as to what percentage of your shoppers actually buys something. If you accept credit cards, you also know what your average ticket is in dollars, and how many transactions you ring up in any given period of time. This information, and more, can be easily gathered from your website and used to track not only how many more people your marketing effort has attracted to visit your website, but the actual increment in sales as well. Understanding both the site visitor demographics and the incremental transaction detail those visitors are bringing you is the holy grail of marketing and too often overlooked due to expense or difficulty of accomplishment with more traditional marketing methods. The ratio of transactions to visitors is commonly called the "conversion rate" and is critical to understanding the results of any marketing initiatives you undergo on the web.

Armed with this information you can make changes to your site, to your product or services offered, or to your marketing focus and immediately see where it is taking you. The entire process of transaction, data collection, and resulting action can take place virtually real-time. One of our clients began receiving orders within hours of launching their site with a Paid Inclusion campaign and could immediately see the who, where and when of the customer transactions as well as other data collected in the ordering process allowing them to adjust their strategies from day one as they saw fit. Internet marketing is relatively simple and can be a highly cost effective way to grow your business.

John Geiger, owner of Webmasters ICE, has over five years experience helping small and medium-sized companies and organizations capitalize on the power of the internet through consulting, education, and supporting products and services. His focus and passion is the use of the internet in providing more effective overall marketing strategies and highly measurable levels of marketing success.

"No meat" press release

I worked on my “no meat” press releases. It’s always fun to target a group and come up with something. Here’s what I came up with:

Decided to never eat anything with a face again? Think "mad cow" and "bird flu" are trying to tell you something? Just want a healthier lifestyle?
Over 25 products allow you to tell the world you are a vegetarian and happy about it!

Online store, givitup, has dozens of items that allow vegetarians and animal lovers to get the word out in a fun way.

givitup is part of which won a Webby Award, the leading international honor for web sites, as the Best Retail web site of 2005 beating out other finalists: and Home Depot.

My daughter is home for spring break from college and we were brainstorming fundraising ideas for her sorority. They are participating in a big cancer walk next month on campus and I said I could give them a deal on my “no cancer” buttons and they could mark them up to resell to walkers. Or I could make “Go Greek” buttons that they could resell. Or decorate tote bags or bumper stickers with their own design. She’s going to take the ideas back to the group.

Newspaper interview about "no breeding"

I decided to send my “no bad hair days” to wig stores. That should be at least as much of a match as for hair salons. I think about a third of the emails came back “unable to deliver” though. Kind of frustrating…

I was at the gym today and when I got back in the car saw I had a voice mail from John. He said a reporter from the Frederick Maryland Post had called and wanted to talk to me about my press release for “no breeding”! I called her when I got back and we talked about what “no breeding” actually meant and she said they were going to run the article for No Spay Day tomorrow and would mention my site! That inspired me to send another 40 emails!

"No bad hair day" clothing & gift line

Day 61

I got tired of “no breeding” so for a break I started sending emails to hairdressers trying to interest them in my “no bad hair days” products. For some reason if they even have websites and if there is a contact button, it doesn’t go to email, but to a fill in form which won’t let me insert pictures. It was much easier to find and send the “no breeding” messages!
But, I really think hair stylists would love to wear these (especially the apron when dying hair), or clients could wear the baseball cap until they got to the salon or the salons could hand out the buttons to customers as a promotional item. I offered to put their salon’s name on the back at no extra charge!
If I could just get the word out to more places!

The history of CafePress

After spending several hours on promotion again today I read up on the history of CafePress and found these interesting facts. is an online marketplace that offers sellers complete e-commerce services to independently create and sell a wide variety of products, and offers buyers unique merchandise across virtually every topic. Launched in 1999, has empowered individuals, organizations and businesses to create, buy and sell customized merchandise online using the company's unique print-on-demand and e-commerce services. Today, is a growing network of over 2 million members who have unleashed their creativity to transform their artwork and ideas into unique gifts and new revenue streams.
Our members have created over 22 million designs on 80 customizable products ranging from apparel, home and office accessories to music and data CDs and books to prints, posters and cards. Roughly 25,000 new products are added every single day!

I am constantly appreciative of the efficient touches they’ve built into our site: from size charts and "email this product to a friend", to information about the materials; things I wouldn’t have thought to add. And all I have to do is create a design and then I can pull up every product to see how the design will look on them. Considering the company is only 7 years old and they have so many shopkeepers they do a tremendous job! Check them out here.

Making money with AdSense

I keep reading all this stuff about people making lots of money with AdSense. I put the ads on my blog on day one, but hadn’t had time to check it or read up on it until today. I’ve made 49 cents in about 50 days from people clicking on my ads!
Whoopee! They mail you a check when you reach $100.00. I wonder how old I’ll be?

What are you giving up for Lent?

I was disappointed CafePress didn’t do any kind of Lent promotion like they do for Valentine’s Day, St. Patrick’s Day, New Year’s, etc. Since that was the original idea for my store (what are you giving up for Lent?) I was prepared! But, there was no mention in their news section and no design contests. Oh, well, I’ve sent out some press releases (of course). Here’s an excerpt:

Ash Wednesday is March 1st. For the next 40 days (the season only counts weekdays) Christians all over the world will be reflecting on their faith journeys. It has become a tradition to give up something you enjoy as a sign of penance and also to get the smallest glimpse of how much Christ gave up for the World.

givitup has taken the most popular things people give up for Lent and put them on hoodies, sweatshirts, t-shirts, mugs, hats, buttons, magnets and more. Whether one is giving up caffeine, sugar, coffee, gossip, road rage, TV, whining, alcohol or dessert givitup has you covered.

No TV Tonight!

I came up with an idea for promoting my “no TV” section! I thought if I added the pillow to that section (since I really think the design looks great on the pillows) and also a teddy bear I could suggest the following:

No TV Tonight!

Looking for a way to let your significant other know you'd rather cuddle then watch TV (short of yanking the remote from his hand?) Or if you're a guy and are shy - need some kind of signal? This site has items you can wear, or a pillow or teddy bear you can place on the bed to get the message across with no questions!

I also sent the “no breeding” to some vegetarian groups with the idea that part of the reason they are vegetarians is because they love animals.
