One Response to Paperclipping Roundtable #7: The Process of Scrapbooking

    I very much enjoyed listening to this week’s podcast/roundtable. I am always interested in how different we scrapbookers can be in terms of what motivates us to scrapbook, and what elements drive our decisions, whether it be the photos, the stories we want to tell, a new product or simply to do something creative. Or, perhaps all of the above.

    I understood the comment a subscriber made about there “being enough room for everyone” at the scrapbooking dinner table. There have been instances of “celebrities” acting as though only they matter, and only they should be included. And, there have been times where “exclusionary” practices have been employed. Perhaps it’s just the competitive nature of women?

    At the same time, I believe that the tradeshows need to be restricted to those who are actually there to do business. After all, they are called tradeshows and their primary purpose is for the exhibitors to show off their products to the retailers, and for retailers to place orders. In no other industry in which I have been involved have I seen non-trade people attend a trade event. I managed in excess of 120 events a year in the high-tech industry and non-business folks were simply not allowed in to the business events.

    I recall a time when a customer didn’t see the new products until the store got them in. And then, wow, what a show it wss for the customer! Now, with sneak peaks and so many non-industry folks attending the shows and sharing photos, there is very little opportunity for a retailer to “surprise” their customers with the newest treasures, something that enabled them to build loyalty with their customers. I see that as a downside of the speed at which, and manners in which, information is currently shared. Personally, I would rather go to my local store and see all the new stuff as it comes in than to have one look at everything new online in one or two days. I guess maybe this goes back to opening Christmas presents and wanting to spread out the opening over Christmas Eve and Christmas Day rather then doing so all at one time? ;)

    Personally, I would never want anyone to feel “left out.” That said, there is a time and place for everything and tradeshows are for people in the trade, not for consumers.

    OK, off my soapbox now,
    Steph
