The Crafty Camper

Our first Vendor has arrived 🙂

You can now shop and purchase direct on our website from any of our vendors.

Just add items to your cart and purchase without leaving the site.

I’m hoping to have more new vendors soon 🙂

Anything currently marked BUY takes you outside of the website to visit small business pages (Facebook, Etsy etc) These are all from before the website upgrade in November 2020. You can still visit them too, leave some love 🙂

Whilst you’re here why not pop over and visit Emily from The Crafty Camper.

She makes the most beautiful crochet creations.

Here are just a few items you’ll find in her store

As well as the normal KL Online Shopping Events (KLE) run on Facebook, Instagram and Website, I will also be having themed website only events.

What are website only events ?

I’ll have blogs dedicated to the theme that will connect you to stores and products through the month. You will be able to purchase straight from the website.

The themes will run alongside the KLE events but won’t include any of the stalls taking part in those events unless they happen to be a website vendor.

Valentines Day Event
The next KL Online Shopping Event on 26th Janaury 2021 is dedicated to all things for Valentines Day.
Valentines Day gifts
Website theme for January will be LOVE

What you get with a KL Event

I’ve created and hosted each virtual online shopping event since I opened in June 2017. I’m not a newbie. I know what I’m doing. I get the best for YOUR business.
 
I don’t have an album of products on my page. I link YOU to my Facebook, website and Instagram. Your products go onto all those platforms and any products I’ve uploaded stay on my website for a month following the event.
 
The events are held on 2 platforms and from next year they‘ll be on 3.
 
I direct shoppers to YOU so that all the interaction increases your brand awareness. This is your chance to sell yourself, chat live and make those sales
You get access to the Training and Support Group from date of acceptance until the end of the event month for FREE (otherwise £5 per month)
 
Everyone has fun, sellers and shoppers, because of all the games and competitions involved with each event
 
I advertise constantly on Facebook, Instagram, Google, my website, through blogs and on YouTube.
Explaination of what stall holders will get from being involved in a KL Online Shopping Event
You'll be seen on many different platforms when you're involved in a KL Online Shopping Event

Of course you have a few questions. Have I answered them here for you? Please do message me if I haven’t 🙂

If you interested in applying please check out the APPLICATIONS and apply for a theme that suits your business

Who would like a personal shopper?

I know I would. 🙋‍♀️

I’ve been shopping online many times and to be honest after a while if I can’t find what I’m looking for I get bored and then annoyed. There is no-one to talk to at these online shops. There is no-one to help me find what I’m looking for.

 

 

*With a KL Online Shopping Event you can use my Online Personal Shopper button to private message me anytime during the event.

*You can also use the Personal Shopper experience post so that everyone can see what you’re asking for or visa versa.

*You can visit each online stall direct and speak to the owner live during each event if you’d prefer. They are present throughout.

My Online Personal Shopper experience has been a big hit during events. 🤩

You can use it at my next event.

Pamper and Glamour.

In 2021 my events will be run in 3 places!

This doesn’t count all the people that my posts reached on the lead up to the event either!

In the week before the event, stall holders pages and product reached 4,391.

My instagram had 283 followers that saw their pages/products before and during the event too.

But I don’t keep people here, I ask them to visit the stalls. So how did they do? I’ve had a bit of feedback from them so far…

One Etsy Shop had 43 visitors  

2 of them have messaged me about all their extra exposure

One lady said her views were up 52% on the day before 🙂 She’d had a few enquires and a few non-dino related sales <3

One stall holder had an increase on her Facebook page stats, even though the event wasn’t linked like normal. Bonus!

We’re still here x

You may have seen on our Facebook page that we cancelled all Online Events until further notice. This was to keep our stall holders safe as well as the public. Everyone should be staying at home.

I know this is extremely hard when you are self employed. I’m half self employed while Laura is fully self employed. Our husbands both have jobs that they go to so we are lucky there. I am a Keyworker working for the NHS 3 days per week as know the extreme pressures happening right now.

We just need you to all stay indoors (you can go in your garden x )

As the Director of KLE I decided to leave all scheduled posts on our Facebook and WordPress pages so that our stall holders still get seen. This is still helpful even if they are running at reduced capacity or not at all. This won’t last forever.

The lockdown has been the perfect time to focus on learning and developing our self employed businesses. I don’t talk about ‘us’ as in me and Laura. I talk about ‘us all’.

Now is the perfect time to create new ideas, plan ahead for the future and network. Be seen while you can’t actually be seen 😉

Thank you to all our new website followers. As I said over on our Facebook page we will be doing drawers for Free Stalls when this is over. We will cover how ever many we need. They were due to be every 3 months.

Any followers automatically get placed into our drawer to be in with a chance of winning a free stall slot at one of our events 🙂

We still have our website residents here and have given them these months in lockdown as extra months to what they paid for.

Please visit our Shop and see what they have available 🙂

A lot of them are still working and posting products – postage may just take some time that’s all. Posties are just awesome right now. Thanks go to all of them <3

Stay safe 🙂

Kelly and Laura xx

How do online / virtual events work?

You may have seen online or virtual events on Facebook. My online shopping events are totally different to those!

In most Facebook events you will see an album of products (100’s) and all you have to do is comment “sold” on the photo you want. 

But I want to help businesses get seen so they can sell without an event too.

So how do KL Online Shopping Events differ?…

At KL Online Shopping Events I try to be as close to a physical craft fayre event as you possibly can online. I want the fun for shoppers, not just the selling 🙂

On Facebook and here on my website (and on instagram from 2021) I host and entertain visitors and offer an online personal shopper experience.

On Facebook I use a route system so that you can go around the stalls one after another. Just like you would at a craft fayre. Some stalls hold games for a fun factor too.

You don’t need a ticket.

You definitely don’t need to stand in a queue.

You won’t get rained on or get cold waiting in a large venue.

With KL Online Shopping Events you get to have fun by playing the games, joining in the competitions and winning prizes. I have fun for the whole family, sometimes I have free printables for the kids and competitions to include them too so they can sit with you and join in  
 

I only host the event. I actually ask that visitors go and discover each small business. This increases their page interaction and gets them seen in newsfeeds. Just by leaving an emoji, a comment or even sharing a post, each visitor is helping that small business way more than just commenting sold on a photo 🙂

When a visitor gets to a page on Facebook they’ll find the owner so that they can chat live if they want; an Open post with link to their product album that fits the event theme, and maybe a game to play. The link to the next stall will also be on that post. (Stall holders can host a game if they want to but its not mandatory.)

On Instagram the event is linked to the Facebook and Website and is used as more of an advertisement so that visitors can decide how to shop. Facebook business discovery and shopping, or quick and simple Website shopping.

Here on my website I connect visitors with the stall holders if they want to go to Facebook or to the website vendors, so they can shop their own way and not have to go through Facebook if they don’t want.

Businesses may have Facebook pages, Etsy Shops, websites or other. I’m here to help their brand awareness.

I’ve been hosting events since 2017.

Scroll down for more and to find out how to win a free stall slot to a KL Online Shopping Event !

And on Instagram from 2021
When you search on the web for “online events” the results show companies selling webinars, online training or websites selling tickets to physical events. These are not what we consider “online events”.
 
There are hundreds of actual “online events” out there! Some call them market nights or craft fayres. They’re all ONLINE EVENTS. Events that are done online…woah! Mind blown!!
 
Hundreds of craft small businesses use these events to sell their creations but there is also a market for non craft businesses to join these events. They are perfect for new businesses out there that’s for sure. You’ll be seen by loads of potential customers.

The best way to find out how one of my events work is to join in yourself as a visitor!

If you like what you see and you have your own business then you could think about joining an Awesome Evening Event. (best for beginners)
