North American friendly #connectfriday on Twitter

Image

A few weeks ago, I discovered #connectfriday on twitter: a group of folks involved in some sort of green business and interested in chatting, exchanging their ideas and expanding their networks. Only drawback, the event occurs at 10AM-11AM Greenwich time… While discovering the event due to my insomnia was a great thing, perpetuating my insomnia for participating in the event seems a bit extreme.

Because of that, and given the great success it is having in the U.K. the amazing response I’ve had while participated, I decided to start a U.S. friendly #connectfriday every friday 10AM-11AM EST  (New York Time). Needless to say, U.K. folks are invited for an early tea (it would be around 3PM their time).

If you are a green business, or simply interested in green businessses, log in onto your twitter account and include your #connectfriday hashtag in your tweets. You can follow other green businesses and find out about events. I’m telling you, it’s great!

Looking forward to seeing you all there!

Square Gift Cards Hype and Why I Am So Excited

ImageBig deal on technology blogs and business news: Square has gotten into the gift card business. Some crafters are super excited and according to reporters, it could be a big deal for small businesses by boosting their sales by a lot. Some folks though are lukewarm about it, for two main reasons. First, the whole thing is a bit counterintuitive: the sender has to download wallet (Square’s mobile application for making payments without sliding your card) and then find the business (which has to have a square account and shop enabled), to be able to use the gift card option. Second and most important, the sender has to have wallet, the new Square application; and Square is not very popular yet, as a matter of fact. Yet, something tells me that this may be potentially a big deal for me. I’ve been wanting to offer gift cards through my shop for such a long time, but all the option I’ve explored so far are way out of my reach (aka, too expensive!)

Here’s how I see it:

1) The wallet option per se does not provide gift cards. Gift cards are part of every shop on the wallet shops directory. However, you can enable your shop visibility on the directory. This is done through your account @ squareup.com, by changing your business profile options. If your shop has a physical location, it come up very easily, also because of the relatively low competition at the moment.

That said, I have a “mobile” business and my shop does not come up easily in the business search on wallet if I type generic words such as “jewelry” and there’s not much room for customization on the Square profile. Besides, the person HAS to have Wallet, to be able to buy gift cards, and I don’t see a large number of people having it anytime soon. The next option is my real source of excitement.

2) The person ordering the gift card needs to have wallet. True, but who said that it cannot be YOU at a craft show, ordering the gift card from your phone and sending it to the receiver’s email on the buyer’s behalf?

I think this is the real deal.

Any thoughts?

If you are an Etsy seller and want to participate in the discussion, I have an open thread here.

5 tips to green your wedding

*More and more brides-to-be are becoming concerned about the environmental impact of their wedding. Join them and green your wedding with 10 simple tips. Greening your wedding can also be a surprising way to save precious  bucks in this tough economy. Find out how:1. Send electronic invitations.
I was recently told that some family member—especially grandmothers— are still pushing brides to paper options and sometimes, even more expensive handwritten ones. Grandmas, we love you, but we are in 2012 and there is really no reason to waste money and paper in invitations that can get lost in the mail, while there is the possibility to safely deliver your invitations electronically, and FOR FREE! If you can’t renounce to the paper invitations, at least consider emailing save the date announcements.

2. Choose an environmentally responsible venue.
There is plenty of choice regarding venues, and what it typically comes down to is location and price. You will be surprised to see how you can save money and have a delightful location if you choose a local park or botanic garden.

3. Choose a green dress.
Yes, I know you want  a white dress but of course I was not referring to the actual color… There is ample choice of environmentally friendly fabrics and be sure you will not have to be restricted to rustic themes. There are green dresses for every style, from minimal to eccentric, from romantic to casual.

4. Choose green accessories.
Starting from jewelry, you don’t need to stick to diamond and freshly mined precious metals. Recycled sterling silver is a valid, durable and affordable option for bridal jewelry and wedding rings. If you want gold, there are artists who use only recycled gold. Yes, I say artist because I’m assuming that if you are reading this you’ll probably choose local artisans for your accessories. If you are even more adventurous, consider buying your of your bridesmaids jewelry from an  artist specialised in UpCycling and ReCycling.

Here at Twice we  just updated the wedding section of the online store, so make sure to check it out. We offer discounts and custom options for bridal parties.

5. Dump the flip-flop wedding favor.
Sure, guests love those little plastic shoes to replace their super uncomfortable heels at the end (some at the beginning) of the party but come on… how much plastic and rubber is going to be dumped in the garbage the next day!? Do you want your guests to be feet-pain-free? Add a reminder to the invitation for your guests to bring their own flat shoes or slippers. To encourage them to bring their slippers, you can plan to have a contest for the best or most extravagant slippers, and they’ll be grateful of having them at the hotels that night as well.
