So I have been toying with an idea researching it and seeing if it might be a good marketing idea for artist my type of artist The Primtives,Country,Whimsical,fun clay creations, and needful things and whatever else falls into our type of world........for our type of buyers, stores and gift shops.
There are many Promo ideas out there in our internet world, that artist can get into and buyers can get lots of samplings Yet there really isn't one for Primitive, whimsical, rustic, vintage collage and altered artist.
So my question would you send in samples and business cards, or your promos to a person that sends out all the items from participating artist to buyers that have signed up to buy and receive the box of samples. Of course the buyer will receive these samples,promos, cards, like relieving a gift in a mail.And very nicely packaged.
I am really thinking about offering this. The name I keep coming back to is "The Untold Goodies" (Yes I even got the blog for it) Though I also like another name so we shall see.
I am thinking if I decide YES for a Oct offering and then every three months after that.
What would the seller have to do Send samples, promos, or business cards.
What does the person have to do to receive the promo packages. Simply buy
I am thinking of offering 3 different promo packs
A $10, a $20 and a $35 promo packs of course that price includes all the shipping.
I will also be marketing to Gift Shops and Craft Shops across the US.
I am also toying with offering an International Promo Pack too. But a one priced one that items can all fit in a Flat Rate envelope and this would really depend on what the sellers send in. Because of overseas shipping It really needs to be worth the buyers.
But I would love feedback on this lingering idea of mine.
I think it is a great way to get your business, items and such out there. And of course me I will defiantly help out the sellers on the best way to market their items
So whats your part Take the poll on the right there is one there for sellers Simply YES NO OR Possibly, I even put Annette you have lost it LOL........
Yes meaning you would be game to send in Samples OR Business Cards, Or Promo cards or all three
No meaning Nope not interested in promoting my business this way.
Possibly meaning I Would like to see what the blog looks like and how many buyers you may have interested in receiving the untold goody bag
ONE thing for sure This whole Idea is going to be strictly done I really want this for the Artist the main thing is the "Budgeted Artist" ones that don't have a lot to spend but want to get noticed. The undiscovered artist. The artist wanting to build their business.
And I would also hold the right to say no to any business. As we do want to send items that appeal to buyers. and I will not allow any BOUGHT items This is strictly HANDMADE.
So let me know your thoughts The good the bad the ugly
