The Altar Work page on my website now has a functional shopping cart for everything that doesn’t require a consultation beforehand. So it’s a one stop page for single-candle light settings, mojo bags, chicken foot charms, and pakets wanga. We’re still working on some of the photo issues (I sent crummy photos which are not working out, and then the "pakets" box has a photo of a mojo bag instead of a paket right now), but all the paypal buttons should be working.
Anything not listed on the page with a "buy it now" button needs a consultation. ANY breakup, crossing, goofering or revenge work needs a consultation.
And a note on consultations: I’ve had more than one person lately purchase a consultation without reading any of the text associated with that consultation. I then have to ask them to read the text again and make sure this is the service they want, since they’re asking for stuff I don’t do (like call them on the phone). Then I have to refund their money. All of this back and forth could be avoided if people would *read.* On every site at which I offer the means to purchase a consultation with me, the copy makes it clear that
- – these are EMAIL consultations, not phone consultations
- – they are consultations, not full-length, in-depth readings
- – clients need to allow 7 days turnaround time for completion, AFTER receipt of all the info I need (if it takes me two days to get all your info, your seven days starts then). I will answer your email ordering the consultation within 24-48 hours, and ask for any info I need, but it might take me a few days to finish yours, as sometimes a bunch come in at once.
Guys, if this were a full-length, in-depth reading, there is no way in hell you’d be getting it for $10 or $15, sorry. I’m not just starting out. I haven’t charged prices that low in 20 years. And I HATE the phone. I do not talk on it without a prior appointment being set up.
I apologize to those of you that read, and to those of you that have read this before; I’m mostly posting it for the benefit of newer blog readers who may not already know this stuff.
NOW, how about a hoodoo post? Let me find y’all something by way of thanks for listening to me beat this "why don’t people read the item details" dead horse….
