If you could only see me right now, I have the biggest smile and I'm so excited to share with you my latest internet adventure: Luvocracy.
Perhaps you are aware of this already, but just about 5 years ago I had to close my little boutique, Mosspink and there isn't a day that goes by where I don't think to myself "how I miss my shop" and "oh what could have been". I still bump into old customer that beg me to open up shop again even though their kids have outgrown childrens clothing. I had what I'd like to think the coolest store in Montreal with just the greatest indie brands of the time. I have kept that passion alive by pinning my heart out and blogging about all the brands I love and would have probably have carried... until today!!!
Today, I have Luvocracy! I can hear you screaming "what is it? what is it?".
Are you ready?
It's a new social platform around shopping. Say what?
Everyday I spend hours searching the web for great product and then I get a kick and thrill sharing it all with you through my blog or Pinterest. Now with Luvocracy, I can share these products and make recommendations in what I like to call my virtual-real online store. In the last couple of weeks I've been gathering some of my favorite things from my favorite online stores and basically have been putting them onto all kinds of different boards. Now the best part is that you can buy directly from my selection without having to leave the site.
So it's sort of like Pinterest except that it's only product focused and Luvocracy takes care and handles the transaction on your behalf. It's one site with all the best products from all over the web, at least I'd like to think so. No more searching and googling for hours, you enter your credit and shipping info once, no more searching for sold out products, or dealing with a lost package, Luvocracy does all the work for you!
And again, a little like Pinterest, you can follow people in whom you trust their taste and selection and Luvocracy will create a catalogue of recommendations from the selections of these people you trust. Making your shopping experience that much more fun and easy.
So what's in it for me? Besides curating my own little online shop, I also make a cut of the sale from the products I've recommended. That makes everybody happy, the boutique owners of the products I've recommended, you and me! Basically, every time someone purchases a product that has been recommended, the curator makes a small commission of that sale. And it goes for anyone and everyone on the site.
Are you exited yet?
Would you like to join me?
You too can curate your own little online shop or if you'd like you could just shop. Since the site is fairly new, you need an invitation to join, so you can go directly to this link and join there or send me an email and I'll gladly send you an invite. I'm really looking forward to seeing your recommendation and having some new friends to trust!
