It's been a week since the Amazon 'Home of Black Friday' Launchpad event, and I'll admit I'm still shattered from it, but utterly delighted to have been invited by Amazon to participate... what a lovely, vibrant event.
I wanted to take a brief second to thank those of you who took the time to drop by to say hello, it was lovely meeting all of you.
As you'd expect, Amazon know how to put on a thrilling retail event, and there were tons of giveaways, gifts, prizes and events to get everyone in the swing for Christmas.
I'd like to thank all the backroom people and PR staff who made the entire week look both effortless and seamless, as well as a big thank you to Amazon for instigating initiatives like this, that give emerging niche and specialist brands like mine a chance to share a stage with the big players.
Most of all, I'd like to humbly thank you, the customers, who've entrusted your hard-earned cash to trying something new, and for embracing something different – I really appreciate it. Thanks to all who came and said hello, I sincerely look forward to seeing you again, and hope that I can find the time to participate in exciting initiatives like this soon.
All the best, Joe
