Few weeks ago, I have written about an online shop I want to manage to have extra income aside from my easy peasy work. One of the few things I want to sell were fashionable accessories. I have noticed that most of the accessories being sold at the malls are quite expensive. Online shopping would not make you walk around wearingly and is more convenient specially for people who does not have time to do shopping outside. Would you go out on a rainy day? Maybe, if I have a private car. Aside from that, you need to eat snack/lunch/dinner, pay the parking fees, etc when shopping at the malls, which costs around P200. When doing online shopping, you only need to pay for the item you want and shipping fee. Shipping fee within Metro Manila is only P50 depending on the item weight. Look at the difference, it’s more than half!
Because of this, I have decided to open up an online shop. Some of the products were ordered somewhere in Navotas, not in Divisoria. I am offering the items at their reasonable prices. Other online shops might have the same exact items I am currently selling but honestly, my items are a little cheaper than theirs. Ranging from P30-P100, these are some of the accessories being sold at Skön.
All bracelets and bangles are only P95, rings start at P50, while the earrings are ranging from P30-P100. If you would like to view other items, please visit my Facebook page at Skön PH. Please do not hesitate to leave a comment if you find something you like.
I just started to sell last week but already had 20 items sold. Blessed? Yes, definitely!
I am currently working as a Social Media Specialist in a BPO Company at Ortigas Center. Luckily, I am not one of those people who work on a graveyard shift. You may have thought someone working in a call center company earning more copious revenue than others. However, not all customer service representative are like that. Some of them may have the same salary with other people working in a different business setting.
As for my work description, I work with social media sites to promote our client’s online retailing industry. We do not take calls but we manage social media properties including daily monitoring and posting content on Facebook and Twitter. Such a stress-free work for everyone I know and I have to concur with them. This is also the reason why I was able to blog post.
I have been wanting to have an online business to have an extra income aside from the salary I get from my corporate work. And I got the idea again from Pinterest while looking at the pictures in the DIY & Crafts Category.
DIY bracelets and necklaces had caught my attention. I can make unique pieces for myself or sell it to my growing circle of friends online. Some of the great ideas I found was from Honestly… WTF. Each tutorial shows step-by-step instruction on how to make these adorable and funky bracelets. Most of the materials are readily available in the market or even in Divisoria for a more cheap finds.
The only concern I have is my creativity. Do I really have an artistic mind to pull this off? The question keeps on bugging me. Oh well, I should give it a try. Nobody knows, this might be my calling! LOL.
