Thanks, Lively, for starting this thread!

I've got info for the PROMO SWAP!!!

If you're a member of the NaturalKids Street Team and would like to participate in the promo swap, here's what you need to know....

1. I will collect everyone's promos throughout the month of July. You can send me your promos whenever you'd like. Please convo me for my address.

2. Please send 20-50 promos. Remember, the more you send, the more your name will get out there to the world!

3. Promos can be business cards, moo cards, or anything else that gets the word out about your shop. There was a great article in the Storque recently about thinking outside the box when it comes to promotional materials. Here's the link:
www.etsy.com/storque/section/howTos/article/dont-order-another-1000...

4. On August 1st, I will gather together all the promos I've received and redistribute them evenly to everyone who has sent me some.

5. I'll ship everyone's promos out a few days (at the most) after that. The only thing I ask is that I be reimbursed for the return shipping. I'll let everyone know through a convo what that amount came to after I've shipped them.

6. Once you have the promos from the group, just include 3-5 in every package you send out. Just in time for people to start thinking about their holiday shopping :D


I'm looking forward to this! It will be fun for all who participate!
If anyone has any questions, feel free to convo me!

Nice work dear friends!
Thank you so much for ordering everything for us.
Hugs!

Thanks lively and cozy! I am thinking about the promotion. I just cannot quite wrap my head around how it is going to work. Let's say, I send you twenty cards another person 50. The next gal 37. You combine the three different cards in a packet of 20. Then the next 17 people get only a combination of two cards, and the next 13 get the remaining cards from the one promoter who sent 50? What do we do with the packets of various cards, promotional items sent? Hand them out randomly? Ship them with our orders? Say, hey if you like my work look at what my friends do...Please, clarify. I don't quite unterstand it yet.

hi, german.
yes, you will get one(or a few, depending on how many participate and how many cards each person sends. lynne is going to sort that out. thanks, lynne:o)of everyone's cards. then you throw a few in each of your orders. pretty simple and an easy way to promote our team.

Posted at 4:01pm Jul 2, 2008 EDT
