Got to shout more!

Being honest, Ziggiziggi has been slipping.
We've been guilty of tinkering around the edges with narrow attempts on the site.
If you do the same things nothing will change so we've done a number of things both on and offsite.
On site, we've relisted the Wipe-It Magic Sponges and also relaunched our Tableware category.
Offsite, using various People Per Hour, we've tried  a number of different experts to boost Facebook followers, improve the useful links to us and to promote the site through other SEM methods.
My hope is that if we see improvements in Ziggiziggis' rankings and a corresponding increase in visitors/orders, that will give us the impetus and confidence to really kickstart Ziggiziggi again.
It will be interesting to see my thoughts in a months time.

New from Beau & Elliott


We've some lovely new additions from Beau & Elliott. Now in stock are a range of lovely embossed ceramic oven dishes (as pictured above).
Plain white ceramics have always been a difficult thing to sell but these have a lovely embossed design that really stands out.

Getting Our Mojo Back


It seems like we took our eye off the ball but we're starting to get our mojo back.
Pamela's finding some great new products, we're up to the Spring Fair next week and we're really working on the social media and PR fronts.
The latest new product we have introduced are the Darwin hammered copper bathroom accessories by Spirella of Switzerland.
Made from stoneware but with a metallic copper finish, they are the ideal match for either ultra modern bathrooms or (if you've won the lottery) one that features a copper bath

Back on the coffee cup path


If we're honest with ourselves, we've let a number of categories run without any input and they've been floundering a bit.
One of these has been our coffee cup category. This week has seen it change with the introduction of loads of new coffee and cappuccino cups by PPD designs that come in brilliant gift packaging that's almost as nice as the product itself.
To help restart the coffee cup category, we've made it a main home page category instead of being hidden in kitchen accessories.

A Couple Of New Novelty Toilet Seats


We've added a couple of fun toilet seats from Wenko to add even more colour to our Novelty Toilet Seat range (as if it wasn't colourful enough already!)
The latest seats feature a multi coloured Lips design and a pink furry Monster design. Both seats are fitted with stainless steel (rust free) hinges.
We reckon they'll be especially popular in kids bathrooms although we hope they'll appeal to anyone young at heart.

Narrow Towel Racks


It's been mentioned that our towel racks have been too wide for some customers.
This has been proven when some have been returned with the customer stating they're too wide, didn't fit etc.
Well hopefully the introduction of Narrow towel racks by Bathroom Origins that are approx. 45cm wide will not only fill a gap (a small gap that is) but also add good sterling value as they are at a  premium price level .
These racks are 45cm wide - that's about 15cm narrower than most so will cut the space required by up to 25%.

Hotellerie Division


We're planning to expand the multi pack options aimed at the hotel industry.
The latest offering is a pack of 3 extra wide shower curtains.
The pack price equates to a cost of under £8 per curtain (including VAT) and in addition to being an extra wide 240cm curtain, these are made from pvc so are totally waterproof and easy to keep clean.
Typical customers will be small hotels, guest houses and some bed & breakfast hotels.
