I am so happy to be chosen by Theo after trying for so long. It was only last night but I have already seen a huge increase in website visitors and social media followers (over 120 in 24 hours). The family community of previous winners is very evident too with so many messages and emails of congratulations. Thank you.
There are over 8000 independent businesses in Scotland making products and selling them online. But how do they get noticed, where do you look?
Shop Scotland.com is an award winning online directory and feature website which specifically focuses on Scottish makers, designers and producers. Customers can browse our categorised website, discover new businesses and then buy from them direct.
People coming to Shop Scotland are already looking for quality Scottish products. We help put creative businesses in front of new customers, and we introduce customers to a huge range of quality businesses they otherwise might never have found.
Businesses on Shop Scotland have benefitted from media interest, sales, increased social media followers, brand awareness and wholesale orders to name but a few. As well as the website we also promote our member businesses heavily through social media. This month we have also launched Shop Scotland gift vouchers which can be redeemed with over 50 of our members.
We also are proud to donate a percentage of all new membership fees to Scottish charities.
Listen to what your customers want and act on it.
Be positive and honest.
Believe in yourself.
Ask for help, you can't be an expert at everything.
