{April 18, 2012}   What will retirement be like?

These girls are about to find out!  If you have had your eye on any of them, scoop them up now!  They will only be around until April 30th, or until they sell out, whichever comes first!

Petite Bag Shells

Please go to www.andreawarren.com/Shop to place an order for these items before they are gone!  They could be gone as early as today or as late as the 30th.  Don’t miss out on these.  If you get to the site and can’t find the item you’re looking for that means it’s already sold out.

Share this on your social media pages, please.  Get the word out because I’d hate for people to miss out because they didn’t know.  Thanks everyone, you all are the best!

Cheers,

Andrea

Many businesses come up with specific names for their products.  When looking through a catalog, it makes the experience fun, but in the real world, and for conversation sake, it can make it hard on consumers.  Let’s take Miche Shells for example.

Shells: The piece that goes on the outside of the base and gives the overall style of the bag. Despite marketing and representatives using the lingo, most people still call them covers.

Urban Shells: These shells for the Prima base were released toward the later part of the summer last year.  SO MANY people were anxiously awaiting their arrival.  Because people were talking about the rumors they might be coming before they actually got here, their name had already been established by the public: Backpack bags.

Go-Anywhere Bag: These shells were created to be able to fill the need so many women have.  How do you carry all your things when you’re going to the gym, pool, park or to the baby sitters?  Miche’s response was the Go-Anywhere, the public says diaper bag.

With these three simple examples, I hope I have gotten you thinking about branding.  How has your business or product established it’s “branding” and how has it overcome the tendency of the masses using general terms when referring to you?  Are you aware of generalized terms used in reference to your product or services?  This stuff does matter, and more than you realize. Below are times when knowing this information could drastically change your bottom line and overall effectiveness in business:

  • Blogging, Websites: Keywords, tags, META Tags and search engine optimization. If you don’t know the layman’s lingo for your products or services, you may be missing out severely on traffic to your internet information sites.   Keywords are words that general people use to describe or search for your products.  Knowing these, you can use them as tags on your blog or website.  A tag is simply a word or phrase that the search engines can grab on to when compiling a search someone’s asked for while sitting at their computer.
  • Twitter: Hash tags, profile naming.  If someone is looking for a Mother’s Day gift idea on Twitter, they are going to use the search function at the top of their screen.  If you haven’t used a “#” in front of the words they search for, you might miss some potential customers.  For example, if you go right now and search #LoveBeautySchool on Twitter, you will get a small sneak peek into what I’m working on for next month. 🙂  However, if nobody searches for #LoveBeautySchool, then the hashtag was just a waste of time.
  • Facebook Pages: If you have made a page on facebook.com like I have for my business, you need to optomize (or get the most out of) your search engine exposure!  How do you do that?  Again, use keywords, or commonly used words by the public, in your page description.  Also, be specific about who you are and what you do in your page name. As a side note:  Use dashes in your page name, too, as Google sees each word separated by a “-” as a word, instead of one big word.  For example, if I had know this when I made my page, I would have called it www.facebook.com/bag-transformation of having it all together as one word.

Nobody gets into business to fail.  Knowing helpful tips like these can help you get leads, connect with customers and improve your bottom line.

If I know what a mother wants, it’s to be recognized as special and appreciated. On Mother’s Day, true, but every other day in between.  Read below to see how you can give her a gift this May 13th that will last for years to come and continually remind her that you love her and remember her every day of the year.

Women of every age want to feel beautiful.  As we get older though, we start to second guess our ability to keep up with styles and trends. We begin to wonder if we are starting to look like that older lady in church or at the grocery store whom we used to think as kids dressed herself in the dark before leaving the house.  With Miche, she can stay in style without having to try.

Below are just a few ways you can know for sure you will be in style at every turn.

  • Our designers keep a hawk eye on the runways in Paris and New York.  You can be sure that the design and color styles and trends on the runways will be reflected onto our shells and accessories.
  • Miche releases new designs MONTHLY!
  • Each shell and accessory is a available on a limited supply basis.  What’s that mean? Everything you see in the catalogue is current and up-to-date.
  • Our products are affordable.  New shells can be purchased often and even put on wishlists for your birthday, anniversary, Valentine’s Day or just because.

As always, if you have questions or need help picking out the PERFECT handbag or accessories, just drop a comment below.

Cheers!



Wouldn’t you like to be able to get the Prima Base and two shells for less than the retail price?

You don’t have to wish you had the Prima Bag from Miche anymore!  Today through May 4th, 2012, Corporate is offering a discounted price on any order which includes a Prima Base and any two shells!

Guys: Trust me.  If your wife opened up a Miche on Mother’s Day morning, you’d get HUGE brownie points!  I can help you pick something out if you feel like a fish out of water in this department.  I have done that for many a husband! You might be thinking, yea but then she’ll want more shells and accessories.  No worries!  I can help her get them for FREE!  What’s better than free??  If you want to see what Miche is all about first, check this out!

Ladies: You already know how much Miche ROCKS!  If you don’t have a Prima bag yet, this is the perfect time to take the plunge.  There are always those days you wish you had a little more room in your handbag, right?  Well the Prima bag will solve that problem.  There’s also a bundle price if you purchase an additional two or more shells, but that bundle is good all the time.  There’s always the option of hosting your own show (Skype, virtual, home/office, catalog), too and then you can get new shells and accessories for free!    April is the last month to take advantage of the Hostess Exclusive Shells Promotion.

The long awaited April releases are here!  You’ve seen them since February in the catalog but starting Sunday, April 1, they will be available for purchase on my website.  Without further delay, allow me to introduce you to these wild ladies!

Interchangeable handbag shells for Miche.

Prima: Robie (Signature). Demi: Harlow (Signature) Megan (Premium). Classic: Harper (Premium). Petite: Skylar (Premium) Lily (Signature) Names given respectively from Left to Right as they appear per size in the picture.

Animal print is always hot, but when the designers added punches of mauve to the classic and demi shells, they turned it up a notch still.  The solid colors of the other shells are so warm and inviting, just like the temperatures that will soon be here.  I know here in middle Tennessee, we’ve seen days in the 80’s already.  Pair these bags with a quiet pattern or a solid and you will be too hot to handle walking down the street.

As if those shells aren’t amazing enough, look what else Miche released!  More accessories to help you totally polish off your look.

Two new Hip Bags (Jayla and Nina), Black Rope Handles, Soft Wallets (Yellow and Neutral Snake) Coin Purses (Kiki, Lola, Margo and Skylar) and three new Charmers (Gumdrop, Taffy and Cotton Candy). All names are given from Left to right in their respective groups.

 

How to use these products:

Jayla Hip Bag:  She’s great to use when you’re on the go, just like any of our hip bags.  If you look closely though, her long strap is the same style as the petite long handle.  If you have the petite and purchase Jayla, you essentially get a new bag and another option for your petite base!

  • Picture this:

Paired with the long handle from  Seriously that would totally get heads turning!  In the mean time, take the handle from the petite base and put it on Jayla.  Can you feel the heat radiating off of this combo??  I can!

Gumdrop Charmer:  The great thing about these charmers (and all of Miche’s accessories) is that you can pair them with any handbag.  I personally cannot wait to put this product on the Lily Shell for the Petite base.  The nice dark pink/purple tones of the shell would blend so well with the teal/blues of this charmer.  Putting these two together would turn heads for sure.  You could also pair it with the Megan for the Demi to pull colors from your outfit onto your bag.

Soft Wallet (Yellow):  For those who like the polished look of a classic solid colored handbag, a bright wallet can give you a punch of party to brighten up your day when you pull it out to pay the lady at the register at the grocery store, doctor’s office or even at the gas station.  Not to mention the compliments and smiles you will get from those standing near by.

Stay tuned in the coming days for Mother’s Day promotions through corporate, Mother’s Day Miche Mania through me and places you can tell your husband to go to purchase YOUR Mother’s Day gift through me!  If you haven’t already, sign up for notifications when I post a new blog.  That way you will be sure to stay on top of all that’s going on through me.  Don’t forget to tweet and Facebook about the new releases!  If you like what you see, I’m sure your friends will too!

Cheers,

Andrea Warren – Miche Independent Representative
