Hello, I'm Erika :D I like nature and mountains and I hope you like my shop!

My shop's story - A chapter of my story :D

Hi everyone! There's my story...
I'm Erika, I'm from Italy and I opened my shop in September 2020, selling products mostly among my relatives and friends (holy people ๐Ÿ˜‚). I've had few sellings out of the band of people I know, despite my attempts to make some good advertisement for the shop.

1) Soooo when I read about the Shop Launch Challenge, I got suddently attracted by the chance of winning so a big prize, which would have been very useful to promote my shop in a more serious way.. Lately I'm also thinking about opening a real shop ('physical', not online ๐Ÿ˜…, I don't know how to explain it correclty in English), in addition to the spreadshop. Probably this is kinda impossible, cause I do a totally different thing for a living (I've recently become a doctor :D), so I wouldn't probably have time ๐Ÿ˜… but come ooon dreaming is so beautiful and the idea of winning some money that could help with this was surely tempting ๐Ÿ˜„ย 
Taking part to the various weekly tasks I realized that the usefulness of this challenge is not just the economic prize, but it primarily is the chance of continuously growing, connecting with other shop owners and learning from who is more experienced in this field, and is so kind in giving always useful tips!ย 

2) My ideal customer is the enthusiast, (a bit ๐Ÿ˜œ) patriotic, mountain lover, who can detect his mountains'profiles and is pleased to wear them, but also any inhabitant of the cities or the towns I tried to represent. The idea, as the hashtag #WearYourPlace says, is actually that of proudly wearing your favourite place, showing everyone where you're coming from, which are your passions... so showing a little piece of you through your outfit ๐Ÿฅฐ

3) Surely during this journey there have been many obstacles to overcome (and so many are surely coming ๐Ÿ™ˆ), first of all the initial trouble of learning how to digitalize my designs (probably most of you here would find this funny, but I can't really use a computer and a graphic program ๐Ÿ™ˆ๐Ÿ˜…๐Ÿ˜‚). Also dealing with the shop every day requires time because, even if I don't have so many clients, I made up a pretty strict editorial-calendar to follow, which I try to stick to, trying not to skip any day. Obviously, mainly working as a doctor (expecially in this time ๐Ÿ˜ฑ) this is not always easy and sometimes it takes an effort, cause maybe I'm sleeeepy and I'd like to go to bed...but instead I have to think about captions for pics, I have to prepare an instagram story for advertising some product and so on... I can say that all this is generally pretty fun anyway, I like this kind of activity (of course I do, nobody forced me to begin ๐Ÿ˜…) so I make all this stuff most of the time cheerfully!

4) If I had a magic wand....... I don't know, probably I would make faster the product-charging phase of the designs ๐Ÿ˜œ and I'd get rid of the embarassed feeling I have every time I make an instagram story in which I show my face ๐Ÿ™ˆ I know I should be more social, more as a person than as a product, but this part it's pretty hard for me

5) At last, to everyone who took part to this challenge I want to say THANK YOU, thank you to the ones who gave me a kind comment, thank you for the supportive words and thanks to the ones who appreciated my works. I didn't have much time to actively take part in this community discussions, and I want to apologize for this.ย

Introduce yourself - Woodcore Design

Hello :Dย 

My name is Erika, I'm from Italy and I've opened my shop in September 2020. There, I sell products with drawings which take inspiration from the places I've visited: mountains, towns, cities... โœจ

My aim was to 'wear' real places, that I've been to and that I liked particularly, with the hope that also other people would find their favourite place among them.

I really hope this 'Shop Launch Challenge' would help my shop growing ๐Ÿ˜€ย
