  • Queen B Wishlist - Solving the Problem of Unwanted Christmas Gifts

    It was with some horror that I read a newspaper article in October which said that in 2009 Australians spent nearly $1 billion on "unwanted Christmas gifts"... [it went on to say that "scented candles, novelty neck ties and foot spas (were) the most spurned items"].  To read the article click on the image at the bottom of this post.

    So, I spoke to our clever web guy and he's developed a Queen B Wishlist function on our website.  O.K. so we're not creating world peace with this one, but it's got to be a step in the right direction if we had more people burning Queen B candles!  Imagine how easy it would make things if the people you loved just told you exactly what they wanted for Christmas... or their birthday... or Valentines Day... or just because?

    The Wishlist function is extremely simple to use, but only works when you are logged in to your account.

    To create your wishlist, visit the Queen B website and log in to your account (in the right hand menu bar).  Now when you browse through the site, you'll notice that each product has the option to "Add to Cart" or "Add to Wishlist".  Once you've created your wishlist, you then have the option of emailing it to all and sundry via the beautifully simple email tool we've got, or there is a link you can copy and paste into an email of your own creation.

     

    Queen

     

    Goodness gracious, Happy Days!  You get your wishes come true and gifts that are exactly what you want and truly useful, and your family and friends get to play genie in a bottle.

    This is version 1.  If you hit any bugs in the system or have suggestions for improvement, please pop me an email.  If you just want to tell Adam (clever web guy) that he is a genius, feel free to do that too.  I declared undying (platonic) love a little earlier this evening!

    And now for the article that set our Wishlist functionality in train...

  • Queen B Frequent Foragers Program

    Coinciding with the launch of our new website (in fact it was one of the major reasons for overhauling our site) is the launch of our new Queen B Frequent Foragers Program. Every dollar that you spend with Queen B online (excluding postage) goes towards increasing your loyalty reward. Adam, clever web guy, has even managed to migrate all of your previous orders into the new system, so your reward level is based on all of your online orders to date. The rewards are as follows: [Readmore]
  • What a blast!

    It seems that our new website largely survived unscathed (good one Adam!) and I am fabulously, deliriously happily scathed! I have done the stairs in our building no fewer than 40 times today (to all the analysts out there, yes I was a little inefficient in my processes). I used an entire 50 meter roll of our beautiful, water-activated arabic gum paper tape (sticky tape is really toxic). A 200L bag of our eco corn flour stuffing... and stuck the last label on its parcel about 2 minutes before Australia Post arrived! [Readmore]
  • New website live. Now to crash it! 10% off the entire Queen B range for 24 hours only.

    Our new website went live just 14 short days ago.

    Like most new mothers (or people who run a small business and really need to get a life), I am besotted and can't stop looking at it.  Oh, the dreams that I have for its future...

    Adam (clever web guy and realisor of dreams) assures me that it can't be crashed.  I thought I'd give him a run for his money.

    So, for the next 22 hours (this post is 2 hours late) we're offering 10% off the entire Queen B range.  To get the discount, either use this link, or use the code Love Queen B in the discount coupon field when you're checking out your shopping cart.

    If you've been with us for a while, you know we seldom discount.  We've never discounted like this... it is the website baby brain!  Certainly both Adam and I are sleep deprived!!  So if you have winter nights to make cosy, presents to buy, love to send, or simply need a cupboard full of random acts of kindness in waiting, then the next 22 hours is the time.

  • New Queen B website - DDay + 14 days

    The new Queen B website went live about 2 weeks ago... I thought I'd delay the announcement until we'd had a little time to iron out any bugs that cropped up.

    What happened instead is that after several weeks of sleep deprivation our wonderful web guy came down with the migraine to end all migraines.  So it's 2 weeks later and there are still a few things that we would like to make work better, but the new site is live and we are already receiving really lovely feedback.

    In fact, one of the things that I am happiest about (and one of the major reasons I wanted to update the website) was so that we could share some of the beautiful feedback that we get... and it's now there on every page.  There is something really lovely about making something that literally lights up lives... hearing about it, or being dropped a note of appreciation is icing on the cake.

    Click on the picture to go straight to the site and marvel! (or is it only me after a year of dreaming, planning and doing  that is this excited?!)

  • Seeking testers for our new website

    For the past several weeks I've been working flat out on a new website. It is designed to make it easier to browse our range, to make it more interactive and dynamic, and most importantly to allow some of the amazing feedback that we get to be shared.

    Because the new website is being built on an entirely new platform, I have had to load every product we sell again (I was a little blown away to discover there are over 260 products for sale on our website) and because of the new search mechanism I've had to weigh, measure, photograph and do new product descriptions for every single one.  Both Adam (wonderful techy guy) and I are very sleep deprived!

    Anyway, the goal is to have the new system go live in the next couple of weeks.  To do this, we'll be needing some testers who can go through the website and look for typo's, find any pages that aren't working and place dummy orders to test the ordering process.  Ideally I would like about 10 people.  You will be rewarded with our heartfelt thanks (& one of our beautiful beeswax candles of our choice)!

    If you are interested, please send am email to queenb[at]queenb.com.au within the next 72 hours.  [NB email address is written that way to prevent robots picking it up and sending me more spam than we already get]
