Christmas Gift Guides and beyond!

What an amazing week we are having at British Crafters!  A record number of sales and a "reach" of over 20,000 people and rising!

Our "Booked Promotion" slots have been very popular and it is great to see the hard work that I am putting into the shops promotion resulting in much higher shop traffic, enquiries and also some sales!

I'm just going to run through the booking process in case anyone is unsure.

1.  Have a look at the upcoming themes to see if your items fit into the categories.
2.  Decide on whether you want to book a single day or book for 5 days which saves 20%.
3.  Purchase your chosen day or block of days from the drop down menu. The price is £2 for a day or £8 for 5 days.
4.  Email with your item link for promotion. If you have booked for 5 days then you need to send 5 links.
5.  Links must be received by 9pm please on the day before you wish to be shared.
6.  Shop links work better than FB links as you can't Pin to Pinterest from FB or Stumble Review from Facebook. However if you only have a Facebook page then we will work extra hard to promote your facebook page on both Facebook and Twitter.
7.  As soon as your shop link is received you will be pinned to the Featured Shops Pin board and your    promotion starts.
8.  Sit back and let us do the hard work for you!

Of course we can get people to your shop but we can't make them spend their money!  It is worth making sure that your photos sell your product as well as they can and that your descriptions answer any potential questions a buyer might have! Also at this busy time of year make sure that you have all your packaging material ready and little thank you notes prepared to pop in with the parcel. Getting footfall to your shop is certainly half the battle won and try to turn each customer into a returning customer!

Below are the links to book slots.  To keep the wonderful dynamic of the page we will continue to do free shares with fb only links and will also limit the number  of paid slots available each day.  Once that number is achieved it will be marked on the drop down menu as "sold out"

Looking forward to some exciting weeks ahead!
