Hello, you wonderful humans! I hope you're having a fantastic day so far. If you are new to my channel, my name is Sam, and I am the owner and creator of Dino Nugget Molds. In this article, I will take you through a typical week in my business and share the behind-the-scenes process of running an online shop. From cleaning molds to packaging orders, and even organizing my Etsy store, I'll give you an inside look at the day-to-day activities and challenges faced by small business owners like myself. So, grab a cup of coffee and let's dive in!

Typical Week for My Business

Running an online business requires careful planning and organization. Each week, I have a set routine that helps me stay on track and ensure smooth operations. Let's take a closer look at what a typical week looks like for me:

Cleaning Up the Freebie Molds

One of the first tasks I tackle each week is cleaning up the freebie molds. These molds are chosen randomly and added as a little surprise in each order. I find these tiny molds absolutely adorable, and I take pride in ensuring they are in perfect condition for my customers. Cleaning them involves removing any residue or imperfections, giving them a fresh and pristine look.

Putting Together the Freebies

After cleaning the molds, it's time to put together the freebies. These cute little goodie bags are included with every order, and they add an extra element of excitement for customers. Most of the goodie bags are Hello Kitty-themed, but I like to spice things up by occasionally adding hidden cinema rolls. The packaging itself, with its beautiful hollow mailers, adds a touch of elegance to the overall presentation.

Packaging Orders

Once the freebies are ready, I shift my focus to packaging orders. Each order is carefully assembled, ensuring that all items are securely placed and ready for shipping. I take pride in providing a personalized touch to each package, making sure that my customers feel special when they receive their orders. I make a point to express my gratitude for their support and loyalty, as many of them are repeat customers.

Promotions and Special Offers

As a way to reward my customers, I often run promotions and special offers. One such promotion involves a gashapone machine, where customers have a chance to win exclusive molds. For every $40 spent in my shop, customers get a free play on the machine. This adds an element of surprise and excitement to the shopping experience, as they never know which mold they will receive.

Mini Mold Release

One of the highlights of my week is when I release new molds. These are carefully designed and crafted to appeal to my customers' interests. I take pride in creating unique designs that bring joy and creativity to their crafting projects. I often give hints and teasers on my social media platforms to build anticipation and generate excitement for the upcoming release.

Pouring and Cleaning New Molds

To prepare for the mold release, I spend time pouring and cleaning the new molds. This involves carefully mixing and pouring the materials, ensuring that each mold is filled properly. Once the molds have cured, I clean them to remove any imperfections or debris. This meticulous process ensures that the molds are in perfect condition for customers to use and enjoy.

Organizing Etsy Store Sections

Keeping my Etsy store well-organized is essential to provide a seamless shopping experience for customers. I recently undertook the task of cleaning up and rearranging the store sections. This involved categorizing items correctly and making it easier for customers to navigate through the shop. An organized store helps customers find what they're looking for quickly and contributes to a positive shopping experience.

Updating Listings

To maintain consistency and clarity, I occasionally update my listings. This involves revisiting the titles and descriptions of my products and making necessary adjustments. As I have refined my listing creation process over time, it's important to ensure that all listings have a cohesive look and provide accurate information to potential buyers. This helps build trust and encourages customers to make a purchase.

Now that you have a glimpse into a typical week in my business, you can see the dedication and passion that goes into running an online shop. I hope this article gives you insight into the behind-the-scenes work that goes into creating and delivering unique products to customers all over the world. Thank you for joining me on this journey, and remember, supporting small businesses makes a big difference!
