February video update

by James

This is our first foray into the world of moving image updates. Andrew and myself take the hot seats this week (we may try and rotate this around the team a bit so you see some different faces).

The updates are designed to give you a quick (under 5 minute) update on what’s going on for people who don’t want to check the forum or read all the blog posts (because you’ve generally got better things to do, like actually make things!).

Things we cover off:

  • What we’ve been developing
  • Features and functionality planned for near future release
  • Marketing and promotional activity

Things that didn’t go to plan: Andrew’s wife makes a cameo appearance through her favourite medium. And someone should have insisted I take that buff / neck cowl off and wait until I’d finished eating my cream egg before filming. But they didn’t.

Links mentioned:

Please let us know what you think of the format. What you’d change or what you want more (or less) of. We can’t guarantee better presenters but we’ll do whatever else we can ;)

More next month.

Great to hear the new plans, look forward to seeing them roll out over the coming weeks and moving Folksy forward.
Thanks for keeping us up to date.

James, I think you look very dashing in your Buff !
It’s great that you are spending time communicating with us, greatly appreciated I know. And good to put faces to names, much more personal and satisfactory.
Thanks ! Sue ( aka susiej.)

I’m a big fan of the monthly updates / data crunching (a bit of a geek I guess) and just wanted to say how much I enjoyed the video. Very informative and it was great to see some Folksy faces. Will look forward to next month’s update.
Keep up the good work!

Loved the video. It gave me a better understanding of what folksy is about and where we’re headed. Liked the “recent items” idea, and the multiple purchases improvement that’s planned.

What a great idea, great to hear all the new plans direct from you both. The communication has improved so much, there is a really good feel to the site, especially on the forums at the moment.Pleased to hear the Pinterest news, I’ve had 3 sales direct from there this month. Thanks!

I like video updates. I am dyslexic and find words on pages daunting – this is great for me.
Love the addition of Pinterest and the guest payment is better. Good to hear about the PR work you are doing with NT mag etc – keep up the good work!
