All Things Norfolk Opens Shop

We are delighted to announce the soft launch of the All Things Norfolk on-line Shop prior to the grand launch in a few weeks time. The All Things Norfolk shop will be stocked exclusively by our local independent business members and provides them with a market place to showcase and sell their products and produce on our prime Norfolk site which is popular with everyone who loves all things Norfolk! We have a large number of existing business members who are currently in the process of uploading their products so the soft launch is just a sneak preview of what is in store! To view the soft launch items please click here

The shop is the latest addition to a number of features that we have launched to help to promote and encourage the use of local independent businesses in Norfolk. Simon Chapman who is the founder of All Things Norfolk said "The All Things Norfolk on-line Shop is a significant benefit for local independent businesses in Norfolk as it provides excellent exposure for their products and produce to the 1000's of local residents and lovers of all things Norfolk Worldwide who visit www.allthingsnorfolk.com each day".

"It is so important nowadays that businesses have an on-line selling proposition to supplement traditional selling methods and the All Things Norfolk Shop provides an extremely cost effective way to receive significant on-line presence and sell on-line. For businesses who currently have no on-line selling presence this is a great way to have their products seen by 1000's of people each day whilst also not being faced with the initial high costs and subsequent monthly fees of hosting their own shop independently (which can of course also get lost in the search engines). For businesses who do already have an on-line presence this will help to supplement their on-line income by having their products and produce for sale on a site which is extremely popular with people who love all things Norfolk and are passionate about supporting local independent businesses" 

"The Shop has taken many months to develop but this investment will be of great benefit to independent businesses in Norfolk and again reitterates our commitment and desire to encourage the use of local businesses and the fabulous range of products and produce on offer. We anticipate that the shop will be stocked with such a wide range of products and produce and will expecially be popular with local artists and crafters, indeed the soft launch includes local artist Stuart Roy Paintings. The Shop also has a collect only option and we have already received enquiries from local producers who see this as an ideal platform to sell their produce with a click and collect option, when posting would be difficult"

All Things Norfolk business members will be able to have their own on-line store within the All Things Norfolk Shop as part of their annual business membership which currently costs £52 per annum

* Full feature page about their business including extensive narrative, gallery, links, contact details, special offers, listed in all catagories applicable to business, map

* Certificate to display in their premises to certify they are a member of our network which encourages the use of local businesses

* Social Media promotion including to our 18.9k twitter followers

* An on-line Store in our fully automated All Things Norfolk Shop to enable them to sell their produce and products 24/7

Not bad for the equivalent of £1 per week! We feel the above package is extremely competitive even before we included the on-line shop as an additional benefitm, with even more being added over the coming months!

How the Shop works

All Things Norfolk business members will be able to have a Store as part of their business membership. It is be free for business members to be able to list their items in the All Things Norfolk Shop and the only additional fee that will be payable is an extremely competitive 10% commission charge to All Things Norfolk upon the sale of an item, therefore no sale no fee! Business owners will be in charge of setting prices, postage and ensuring items are despatched directly to the buyer and the process of buying and selling is fully automated to ensure the process is as efficient and smooth as possible for both the buyer and the seller.

The All Things Norfolk Shop is extremely user friendly and incorporates all the functionality that you would expect from leading on-line marketplaces. We have created quick set up user friendly guides to help you build your store and we have made it just as easy to build your store as people find it to build an event listing or business listing, so a degree in IT is not required!!

It goes without saying that the All Things Norfolk team are here to support with the building of your shop. We pride ourselves on the high levels of service we provide which is why so much of our success has been built through word of mouth.

The launching of the on-line shop is another significant feature from All Things Norfolk in helping to promote and encourage the use of independent businesses in Norfolk. It means that your produce and products will be showcased to Norfolk and beyond every second of every day, enabling you to take advantage of the thriving on-line market in a one stop shop featuring an array of items from fabulous independent Norfolk businesses.
