Need some help.. Seriously.. let’s call it Market research
I was going to do a poll on FB but I have too many caveats.. Please comment/respond as HONESTLY as possible!! I want your feedback on this…
IF you purchased a “there’s a chance this is vodka” Water bottle or if you have intentions of doing so in the future… I’m talking to you! I’m working financials and need to streamline this process.. it’s killing me!
Bottom Line: I shipped 3 fucktons of bottles from October til today. That is a lot of fucktons. I want to keep the price at $15 if possible and not raise it. HOWEVER.. the single bottle orders are killing me in time, supplies, labels, printer ink, etc. I am going to have to raise the prices for ALL bottles OR institute a 2 bottle minimum for orders.
**** NOTE— “there’s a chance this is vodka” is a Hot Mess Mom Registered Trademark. Legally, no one else can print or distribute this slogan on ANY drink-ware anywhere in the US. Also note– trademarking is not super cheap.
Shipping is $6.95 for up to 3 items. IF there was a 2 bottle minimum, would you choose NOT to purchase at all or to purchase two bottles? (transaction total from $23.00 to $39.00)
As I cannot keep these bottles in stock, there is currently NO price-break for bulk orders until a QTY of 24.
So.. basically.. I need to decide to raise the price per bottle to $17.50 + shipping OR keep at $15 but require a minimum of 2 bottles per order.
Please Please Please give me your honest opinions and feedback (without being bitchy). And again.. NOTE. I am a one woman show. I do everything myself. There were less than 12 order or shipping errors and/or discrepancies for the last 1200 orders. In 100% of these instances, not only have I corrected the error regardless of fault (10 of the 12 issues have been USPS related.. 2 were totally my fault), I send extra goodies to compensate for the inconvenience. I never want to stop doing that. But I need to figure out how to make it a win/win situation.
So.. here’s your chance.. tell me honestly.. (and nicely because I am pretty fucking exhausted)… what do you think?
