Bees are social, and now so are we!

Bees are social, and now so are we!

It took us much longer than we had planned but we now finally have an official Facebook page! This year is our first spring season, and we wanted to make sure our existing operations can be scaled fluently before we add even more tasks to the the to-do list. What is it that we were doing you may ask. Here’s what we’ve been doing:

  • Received a new container of goods in early March. We unloaded them and inspected every hive
  • Negotiated with both UPS and Fedex and got better rates and passed the savings to our customers
  • Integrated a shipping platform – Shippo (A friend’s company here in San Francisco) to our website so we can offer shipping notification with tracking number
  • Implemented a secure credit card payment terminal Stripe so we can now accept credit card payments without PayPal
  • Updated our manuals to include more clear and detailed information
  • Purchased color printers so we can print our manuals in color 🙂
  • Shipped lots and lots of products to our new and repeat customers, as well as Amazon warehouses!
  • Worked on social sharing of our website so you can share any page, post or product you like with your friends

Speaking of social sharing, and going back to the topic, we were motivated by one of our dear customers. She told us multiple times that we should have a Facebook page where we can introduce our products and answer question, and create a platform where people can easily ask questions and share their hives, stories, and opinions. It is now possible with our new Facebook page. Every time somebody asks a question there, whether it’s a beekeeping question or a product question, we’ll create a blog post about it and add it to our knowledge base. Knowledge is the only thing that you have less as you share, so we are here to share our and your knowledge.

So, what’s next?

We recorded some videos of me explaining our products and some procedures. They are very amateur looking and needs lots of work on editing (and in my opinion, completely redone). We’ll start posting videos on our YouTube channel too.

Bees are social, and now so are we!
