I have heard a few times these days that designers complain that they don’t really get any visits to their main stores inworld. Some has actually posted the question on social media if they should continue their inworld store, or just be present at events. Then again, so many shoppers have complained that there are too many events and most of the events have the same items with only one exclusive item (which is understandable if you participate in 5+ events and had to make 5+ different exclusive items).
I had a think about that and I am beginning to find events extremely boring, especially the regular bi-monthly and some monthly events. The problem with those is that the same designers are in every single round and 10 different events the same month. So if you have visited one event, you have basically visited most of the other events too (with the exception of a few of course). I would like to see that designers participate in two or maybe three events in one month and then maybe participate in one or two different events the following month. Or choose your events carefully, and only participate every second month with the month in between – design something new for your store. Promote and make me want to come to your store and explore! I love visiting stores and finding other awesome stuff as well.
I think participating in events is an awesome marketing tool, but if I like something you designed and every single other avatar is wearing it, I’m not going to buy it. I’d rather go to your store and see what you have to offer. You caught my attention at the event, now keep my attention at your store. LpD did just that. I love her clothes (and no, I’m not blogging for her), but she had an outfit at The Chapter Four which I loved. Everyone did and every second blogger blogged it. Everywhere I went, everyone was wearing it. So I went to her store, and I absolutely love her style. It’s different and I can style it up or down. And the best of all… I’m not wearing the same shirt/pants/skirt as the next avatar. I really don’t care about the hottest newest thing on the market. I prefer different, unique.
I know that I might the only one with this point of view and I can’t imagine that the designers will even consider my proposal. In a perfect world I would rather see quality over quantity and an amazing reputation.
