I could wax eloquent about how valuable a blog is to your consignment, thrift, or resale shop… but you already know how great it is to communicate with your customers and potential customers on social media. Wouldn’t it be wonderful if, instead of shouting at them across a crowded cocktail party (which is Facebook, Instagram, and the like), you could invite them to join you for a moment on that comfy loveseat over in a quiet corner so your two can talk, really talk? (That’s what a blog is.) And then use that “invite” and that one-on-one talk over and over again (more…)

If that’s your worry, worry no more! Here’s the List of All Lists: A treasury of ideas for Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, YouTube, emails, blog posts, even speaker’s topics and presentations!

You know that just saying buymebuymebuyme isn’t enough to help your business thrive, to help people love to shop with you…  you know you need to be SOCIAL… you know you need to entertain, educate, elucidate, motivate…but sometimes, it’s hard to come up with something that really adds value to following your business. So these lists are just some Auntie Kate has found for you:

Now, not all of these hundreds of ideas will apply to our unique resale, consignment, and thrift industry. But I’m guessing you can copy-and-paste enough inspiration to never again have to say
