Where Do We Go From Here?

Where Do We Go From Here?

February 19, 2019

Okay so you might have noticed that we've not launched any new products in ages. I want to explain why this is.

Brexit

I committed to Prophecy Girl just before the Brexit vote in June 2016. Considering how it's dominated politics in the UK ever since, we seem no further towards any answers than the day of the vote. With mere weeks to go, it's no exaggeration to say I have absolutely NO idea what is going to happen, how it will affect my business (and the rest of my life) and it's completely paralysed my decision making.

In preparing for the worst outcome, the only option available to me is to do nothing, which leaves Prophecy Girl going nowhere. And that can't continue indefinitely. We've been in a holding pattern since last summer, waiting for answers.

Quite understandably, my UK customers are being very cautious with their spending habits (me too!), and that has compounded the problem, because Prophecy Girl is entirely self funded. So when orders dry up, there's no money in the kitty to make shiny new things for the shop. I'm very grateful for every single order, no matter how large or small, or where it comes from. Ultimately, without orders there is no Prophecy Girl.

I've worked really hard to reach new people, but growing our following has been super hard. Most of Prophecy Girl's competitors have ten times the number of followers on social media. And with posts only shown to around 10% of our own followers, Prophecy Girl is almost completely invisible. Creating competitive content 7 days a week has been pretty draining tbh, so I've withdrawn and taken a bit of a break to concentrate on things outside of Prophecy Girl. I'm also hyper aware that you've seen everything we have to offer, and I'm basically talking to the same people about the same things. Like Brexit, I don't have an answer (I've tried everything I can think of to reach new people).

So between Brexit stifling orders, and the struggle to find new customers, I'm sad to say there are no plans for new designs in the foreseeable future.

For now, we're still flying. What happens next is anyone's guess.
