By Voice of the Village 2 months ago 352 Views No comments
Sellers who have their shops on Our Village have the best of all worlds because they can simply use their Our Village shop as their own website. This includes using their shop’s home page as their web address for business cards and email signatures! Before going into more detail about how that works, let’s take an overview look at some of the advantages and disadvantages of having your own website.

OUR VILLAGE – Home of THE SHOPPING SMALL MOVEMENT

By Voice of the Village 2 months ago 17 Views No comments
Shopping Small. Up until the 20th century, all shopping was “small”. The advent of big corporations and big box stores changed everything. The concept that “bigger is better” sounds good but is not necessarily true, especially for small business owners or sole proprietors. That’s why understanding the importance of Shopping Small is critical to the future success of all the individuals and families represented by the Sellers who have shops on Our Village and to the entire American economy. Shopping Small shouldn’t be promoted only one day each year. Shopping Small should be a 365 day, 24/7 goal for all consumers and there are good reasons why this should be a national priority. Our Village is taking the lead, promoting Shopping Small as the first option customers should always consider. Let’s look at the data to understand why.

For sellers in the online marketplace, more choices give them the opportunity for more exposure of their products to customers. While Etsy is one of the leaders in the online marketplace, there is another choice that makes a lot of sense for sellers.

FREE IS GOOD Our Village™ is a majority women-owned company. We formed Our Village recognizing the need for artisans, crafters, makers, and small, family-owned shops to have an online resource that allows them to keep all money from their sales in order to support themselves and their families. Our shop owners pay only a $5 per month fee for their shop. That's all. Most other online venues charge their shop owners "per item" listing fees, plus take a percentage of their sales.
