Sales Report – March 2019

We are providing monthly sales reports for our community marketplace in the spirit of transparency.

March has shown that the first three months for our co-op has created a consistent baseline of sales. The average monthly sales so far this year is $239.

This is great progress but it leaves more to be desired. We are ramping up our efforts as a community to promote our co-op both in steem and outside of steem.

Only 5 days into April and we have already seen $116 in sales accross our co-op which may indicate a strong month for sales. We’ll see how the rest of the month shapes up.

And for now here are the stats for March.

This post is an update to our fundition project

$233.98 total sales

In March our vendors saw $233.98 in total sales, priced in USD. This number is excluding shipping.

CurrencyJanFebMar
STEEM$138$55$60
SBD$6$4$25
USD$132$147$150
Total$276$206$234

100% of the profit is retained

True to our mission to seek empowerment over profit, 100% of funds transferred between customer and vendor are safely in the vendors’ hands.

We are not middlemen in the transactions, so we never touched any of the funds, nor did we take any commission. In fact Homesteaders Co-op was bypassed completely during financial transactions between customer and vendor – this is by design.

Sales Report – February 2019

We are providing monthly sales reports for our community marketplace in the spirit of transparency.

February’s sales were a lower than January’s $275.75, but March is shaping up to be stronger in the first half, we will see how March finishes. In the meantime here are February’s figures.

All in all we are only 2 1/2 months into our new marketplace and it is exciting to see any sales happening already! As a community we are growing and learning how to market our stores and our marketplace together. Good things are happening and I personally look forward to the months ahead. I am very motivated to see our vendors receiving sales and being rewarded for their hard work and quality offerings.

Delegation Report – January 7th 2019

This is our first Delegation report. Our initial call for delegations was 2 weeks ago. In that time we have already received many generous delegations from within our community and also from folks that saw what we are doing and want to support our efforts.

At the time of writing this we have received:

8,137 SP in delegations

Thank you very much delegators! I want to give a special thank you to @papa-pepper and @pennsif who have made extremely generous delegations to @homesteaderscoop. Thank you!

Our use of delegations to support our community is fully transparent and is outlined below.

Steem Co-op

Here is what we are currently doing with our Steem Power:

Voting for Contributors

Our contributors are our leaders and our voices. They in part are helping steer where we are headed as a community. They are helping to highlight our vendors, our ethics and engage steem as ambassadors of our marketplace. Our contributors are receiving both beneficiary payout from our @homesteaderscoop blog as well as up-votes on their individual accounts in recognition of their team efforts.

Voting for Vendors

Our vendors are steem individuals and families that are dedicated to sustainability in their lives. Many are willing to put their financial security on the line to do so – or go to extra lengths in order to make ends meet while they pursue sustainability. Our up-votes to our vendors are meant to help provide some additional reward for our vendors as a thank you for choosing to incorporate some aspect of sustainability and/or ethical care of the earth into their lifestyle and business choices.

Voting for Charitable Organizations

We are starting off on a foot of giving to those that are in need. We are sending upvotes to @pennsif‘s @adollaradaycharity which supports directing charitable donations to many “on the ground” charities. Further we are upvoting @familyprotection‘s comments, in part in thanks to @canadiancoconut‘s generous support and also to help support the work she is doing to keep families and their children together.

Voting on our own Posts for Growth

We are shamelessly voting on our own posts in order to continue to grow our SP which we can use for all of the goals we’ve outlined here in this post.

Outgoing Delegations

Regarding delegating out, we are just starting to earn SP. However we want to set a precedence from the start that our community marketplace is dedicated to helping less fortunate than ourselves. The reason this is so important to is because Homesteaders Co-op is more than one individual, it is a community. We have the potential to gain strength and influence. What kind of example do we want to set? What kind of world do we want to support?

Therefore we have delegated some SP to @adollaraday. We will continue to increase that delegation as our community account grows and a thank you for the work they and the organizations they support are doing to make this world better and safer.

We will also be starting a retention campaign in the very near future, which will be lead by @nateonsteemit and other contributors of our community. We will be delegating out SP to homesteader/sustainability newcomers to the steem platform. We hope to help overcome the RC limitations for some newcomers and do our part to assist in retention of new steem-comers that show promise and value for the steem communit at large. More details to come.

Incoming Delegations

In addition to asking the community at large for delegations, we are also asking our vendors for delegations. We are suggesting delegations from vendors with over 500 SP. However it is not mandatory and we will not be policing who is delegating and who is not. We are only asking to those that can comfortably afford it.

It is our hope that delegations come from those that believe in what we are doing for the community at large.

Now is the time for me to ask you to consider delegating. Delegating is a way for anyone to take some ownership in our community as a stakeholder. It is a vote for our efforts, our ethics and our mission. Thank you for your consideration.
