  • All Over the Shop BBC2

    Hubby taped this programme for me last night and it's on every Tuesday 7.30pm BBC2. It's basically a guy trouble-shooting small retail businesses and although I know there's not loads of us here with physical shops I think a lot of the advice can be transferred over to website/craft fair businesses too. Hubby felt it was a bit lightweight but tbh after putting in a 12 hour day yesterday that's all I could handle anyway and I did feel some of the advice was useful

        just watched in i player. it was almost stating the obvious. however, I found myself face to face with my own dilema. I will not sell excessive things to people. They don't need 15 different pairs of pliers when they are starting out. I tell them exactly wat they do need. So i guess I'd have been in trouble!!

          Have also just watched it on iplayer as beads by design said don't like to oversell. The only thing I thought of was when I sell say something to offer a gift box extra plus wrapping and tagging, also maybe suggest a card as well.

          Love these sort of programmes, Apprentice, Dragons Den, Martha Stewart apprentice, The Cut etc etc. Am always willing to learn and try something new.

          Thank you Nattynetty for pushing me in the right direction.

                I would have thought she was due for another series but no mention.

                  I have that problem, hubby despairs cos even though I sell stamp cleaner I tell people that baby wipes are cheaper and work just as well Although I believe that by being honest with customers it builds up a trust and that can't be bad for a small spe******t shop can it?

                      I saw it last night it was very good, a craft type business was featured. One of their problems was that they had no internet presence, which to me seems to be a essential in business today.
