Posted by Jen Edgerton | Cute! Pet Gear on Jan 3rd 2016
Happy New Year! With a new calendar page, comes a brand new look for Cute! Pet Gear. We're excited to bring you a ton of new features in 2016, along with some new designs and products in the works!
Our homepage features a few of our own cuties on the photo carousel - we'll meet them in a later post. For now, they'll direct you to our shop categories to help you find the perfect item for your favorite fuzzball or maybe even something for yourself! New this year are our items for pet lovers! We've got lots of goodies coming to this category this year!
We've added a sale category, too! Take the opportunity to scoop up your favorite collar or accessory before they are no longer available. Some of our most popular designs from the past are ready for retirement!
We've also made it easier to sign up for our email newsletter! You can sign up right at the bottom of the homepage or during the checkout process on any order. We promise not to clog your inbox with email and we'll only send one newsletter a month. Lots more will be going on right here on our blog, as well as on Instagram and our Facebook page, but signing up for the newsletter will give you advance notice of special announcements and promotions.
You got it! In fact, let's start off with one right now. At the tippy top of our homepage are some super cool, extra fun links! We'll get to gift certificates in a minute, but a Wish List?
Yep, you can create your very own wish list and save your favorite Cute! Pet Gear goodies for the future. Or...even better...you can share your wish list with family, friends, and even Santa!
You can also keep it private if you'd like to. It's your wish list - do your own thing.
First, you need to create an account. You'll find the link for that right next to the Wish List link on our homepage.
Creating an account lets you do all sorts of cool things on our new website.
Once you've created your account, you can start filling up your wish list.
Start on the page of your favorite item and click ADD TO WISHLIST. If you have more than one wish list, you can choose which list to add which item to. Then click the gray button and you're done!
Now here's that first promotion we promised.
To celebrate our new website and all its fun features, we'll add a little 'thank you' store credit for everyone who sets up an account in the month of January 2016. Kind of like a stocking stuffer for the new year.
No need to place an order just yet. Set up your account in January and take some time to browse the site - maybe set up a wish list or two and when you're ready, use the store credit toward your next purchase.
Psst! We'll have another promotion coming up in February just for our newsletter readers, so sign up and watch your email!
Where are all of our Cute! Club members? All of our wonderful, fuzzy customers in their Cute! Pet Gear attire that were featured on our old website are missing! <gasp!>
We lo-o-o-o-ve receiving photos of your cuties (in fact, it's our most favorite thing of all) and the Cute! Club is still going strong. We're working on finding the perfect photo gallery to integrate with our new website. But, until we find it, we'll highlight our new Club members right here on our blog, as well as Facebook and Instagram!
And, twice a year, we will still draw a name at random for a Cute! Pet Gear gift certificate. We've got one of those drawings coming up in just a couple of weeks, so check back right here for the announcement!
Our gift certificate process has been updated and it's super easy! Head back over to our homepage for the link right at the top of the page.
You can send your favorite pet lover a gift in any denomination and have it delivered electronically within minutes! Simply enter your message, complete the required information, and hit send!
The gift certificate link also allows you to check the balance on your certificate!
If you ever need to reach us, please contact Jen by using the Contact Us form, or simply send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
If you live near Upstate New York or in the Northeast, we'd love for you to visit us at one of the Special Events we attend throughout the year. Please introduce yourself - we'd love to meet you in person!
If you like to chat online, please leave a comment on any of our blog entries or Facebook posts.
Are you a Pinterest addict, like..um, everyone? All of our item listings and photos are "pinnable"! Is that a word? Just click on the red "Pin It" icon.
Our new site allows us to accept feedback on the items you purchase. About 7-10 days after you make a purchase from our new site, you will receive an email inviting you to review your experience and your item.
We hope you will let us know how we did!
We're looking forward to a fantastic new year and we're grateful for all of our customers and friends, both new and old!
