NEWS & UPDATES
I know many of you still have snow on the ground but I am hoping spring is just around the corner. It has burst forth here in Portland, with blooming trees everywhere. My birthday is April 1st so I particularly appreciate the beauty of this time of year.
I gave myself a new little dog named Tulip for my birthday. She is a Chipin, a hybrid chihuahua/
Minature Pincher mix
that is just as cute and sweet as she can be. Weighing in at 7 lbs. 2 oz. and about 16 months old (she is a rescue pup so I am not sure) she is chocolate brown with symmetrical tan markings. Very pretty. She has obviously had puppies. The pet psychic I consulted said she was very young when she was bred and all the puppies died. Then she was owned by an old lady, who couldn't keep her so she wound up in the humane society system in Southern California where there is a glut of small dogs on the animal control circuit and, as a result, she nearly got put down. A rescue group in Washington state fostered her for three months until I adopted her on March 14th.
New Chat Service Installed!
You will notice the new chat window in the lower right corner of the screen. This feature is continuous throughout this website as well as the shopping cart. Any chat you begin will follow you as you move around either website. I personally find chat windows kind of tedious, I would much rather speak on the phone, but I realize that many people feel just the opposite, so I thought I would give it a try. Now, when I am in the office, this will allow you to contact me easily and I hope many of you will find it a welcome addition.
How I choose a chat service provider:
For those of you considering a chat service for your own business, FYI I choose Olark. For one thing, Olark is known to work well with both Weebly and BigCommerce websites, both of which I already have.
They have a forever-free plan, so there is absolutely no financial risk for you to set it up and see if it will make a difference for your type of business. This plan is remarkably full-featured, although there are other rich features available for several levels of paid plans as well. (One of their main competitors is Zopim, which also has a free version but that level has very limited customizable options compared to the free version of Olark). It was a breeze to set up and I got plenty of help from them during that process.
Olark only offers chat-based customer service but, so far, I have found them to be available during posted hours and pretty responsive and very helpful (although it is not a 24/7 service). Even though I chose a free plan, this does not seem to compromise the quality of the customer service they provide. You can find out more about Olark at their site: www.Olark.com
Update on the Facebook page, which is still under construction.
I am woefully out of the loop with social media. I finally started a personal Facebook page and was immediately overwhelmed with friend requests from women I never heard of, I am sure most of these requests come from midwives and related professionals. I am finally trying to fix this mess by launching a business Facebook page. It is still under construction, however I was stumped almost immediately by the requirements for the header banner. Still working on the header banner!
