The Ruby Lane Experience Part III - Pass It On
inJune 16, 2008 - 4:54pm
Here you are in the virtual world of Ruby Lane. You stroll from shop to shop finding treasures you have been searching for. You look at an item. Maybe, your eye catches another picture at the bottom of the page and you jump to that item and peek at it.
Then you notice there are just a small number of items in the shop. You look at the About Me section and the date they opened their shop and discover the shop is a new addition to Ruby Lane. You think to yourself, This is a very nice job for a new shop.' What a great start and a great addition to Ruby Lane. It's time to be a good neighbor and write a quick e-mail applauding the newcomer’s efforts.
As I said in my last entries, we are a community of collectors. Some shops are big. Some are small. Some are extensions of brick and mortar businesses. Some are making their first baby steps in the selling game. Here's what you can do to reach out and embrace the Ruby Lane community:
Some may accuse me of being a Pollyanna and making more work for myself, but I believe it's just being a good neighbor. Others have been good neighbors to me on Ruby Lane. I always try to pass it on.
