Next Wednesday, 9 March is ‘Made in the UK Day’. The campaign is the idea of the folk at ‘Make it British’ – a community of UK-made brands and manufacturers.
This year I’ve decided to mark the day by offering 20% off my hand painted silk scarves. Even though I have been running my online shop for over eight years, it is only recently my daughter showed me how to use the backroom tools to make a ‘Coupon’. It magically gives my customers the discounted price when they add the code during the checkout process.
I have also made a short video for the day too.

Bravo, I hope you make lots of sales. I admire your grip on technology as well as your artistic endeavours!
Thank you. I’ve got the hang of the tech, but I am not exactly speedy. It drives my daughter mad!
Lovely things. And at least you have your daughter on tap as Technology Consultant. Some of us don’t have that luxury 😉
Thank you. And, thank goodness for my tech warrior daughter who sorted out my private email that got hacked last week. I had no idea how to deal with it.
Hope you’re not feeling too poorly and shake it off quickly.
I’m fine. Just isolating. Private email hacked? I hope with no consequences. Hooray for tech warrior daughters!
That’s good to hear and I guess we have the vaccines to thank for that. Regarding the hack, just keeping my fingers crossed it goes no further.
Congratulations on making the video, and I had no idea there was an automatic coupon code widget hiding behind the scenes. Not that I need it for my website but handy to know it is there. Good luck for you sales day.
Thanks. I can’t claim super coding skills at our end (!! 😉) as I do pay for my listing on a professional platform which offers commercial extras as part of my package. It was just that my daughter was quick to figure out how to use it all. Actually, she can code, but is just that little bit too old to be a true digital native where coding is concerned. She is a very good swimmer though, which might become an essential skill the way the weather is going with storms and floods all over the place. Still bad for NSW I see. Take care and stay safe.
I used to be able to translate between users and programmers and had some idea of coding. But technology is forever changing (and not always for the better).
Swimming is an essential skill with the way our weather patterns are changing, too. Although to be frank, when you see those fast moving waters, and the various debris being swept along with them, it is really a matter of luck than skill as to whether you can get out of them.
It didn’t rain today, but more is lurking. We have now reached the rainfall totals that normally take until August to achieve.
Wow the flooding is really turning into a true natural disaster of a massive scale.
