    4. How To Turn Your Offline Business Into An Online Business

    So much is changing right now about how we do work. Many of us have something we’ve created that we sell physically, but now we’re looking at how to pivot to have a strong online offering. Join us as we talk about some of the top tips for taking your business online - without discounting all you’ve created so far!


    EPISODE RECAP
    The first step to turning an offline business into an online business - start with what you already have (3:01) Use your knowledge and market research during physical sales to gain understanding about your customer (6:56) Talking to people online is a very different way of talking to people than offline (8:25) Try and take yourself out of the situation and see it as being about your customers and how you can help them (10:06) You’re already an established business with products. So you know what your customers like, think about how you would speak to someone in real life if you were selling to them (11:30) Pick one key social channel and be present in that channel every day (12:58) This one is non-negotiable - get people onto your mailing list and that’s where you sell them (14:10) A common mistake people make when starting out is having a website, an etsy store, etc. and there are too many places to manage (15:23) A few more things on this topic as we close(17:40) Don’t tell yourself that you can’t do it - you’ve already run a business and you can do it!

    3. Ethical Gemstones | What Are They And How To Buy Them with Stuart Pool

    Today we’re joined by Stuart Pool to talk about ethical gemstones. Stuart is the founder of Nineteen48 - an ethical gemstone company. He is a passionate advocate for this work and gives his time to teaching us how we can run more ethical businesses, what ethics means and specifically colored gemstones and their supply chain. I’m very excited to share this today, join us as we get into this topic. 
     
    EPISODE RECAP
    Introducing Stuart Pool (2:03) Let’s start by learning about the process of how we get a gemstone (3:21) How do we know what an ethical gemstone is? Is it about the mining being ethical or the whole process? Share your thoughts with us (7:58) Where can we see your ethical statement? (12:25) Every step is a step in the right direction (14:46) Let’s say we’ve made the decision we want to source ethical gemstones - how do we go about buying these stones? And is it possible to get less expensive stones? (16:43) You sell ethical gemstones - what kind of stones do you sell? (21:33) Ethical gemstones usually cost a little bit more but consumers seem to be asking for them (23:33) For me and a lot of people listening, it’s worth the price to help the industry move this direction of ethical gemstones (26:44) Think about your own values and what matters to you and build that into your business. This topic of ethical gemstones is a wonderful one to raise and talk about (29:53) As independent jewellers, are there things we can do in addition to sourcing ethical gemstones? (30:44) If people want to find out more, where can they go? (33:12)
