Today is my birthday. There will be a lot of candles on the cake. Too many to count and far too many to share! Every year I get my mother a gift on my birthday because I know I was a chore to raise! I do not celebrate my birthday too much beyond that other than taking a day off to not do too much. So, today I will try and not work too hard.
See you all next week!

Any sales event you plan to have on Etsy this Holiday Season needs a plan. You need to have a bit of a schedule set up so that you can share the info with your social media outlets. Don't forget that with Etsy you also have a shop announcement that you can publicize your events through. That is a very underutilized tool on Etsy.

It is time to start thinking about your Black Friday Sales events. The day after Thanksgiving is one of the busiest shopping days in the year! It is a good idea to jump on the band wagon. Whether you plan to offer free shipping, percentage discounts or dollar amount discounts you really need to get in gear now!
Leak your potential sale to your social media. Play the game like the huge retailers do. Start getting people ready for your sales now. Drop hints and give teasers. Make it a huge deal for all of your customers. You may even want to change your "Thank You" coupons to Black Friday Coupons.
I will be talking more on this in the weeks between now and the actual Black Friday Event. If you have suggestions or experiences please feel free to share with a comment or send me an email to MarketMyShop@gmail.com

Christmas is coming! Are you ready? I am certainly not! I am so busy I even missed Halloween for Etsy. I am trying to formulate a plan for the upcoming weeks. With the economy picking back up slowly many people will be buying online. Your marketing campaign is more important than ever this close to Christmas.
I am still trying to get a couple of articles written for you guys. I just seem to have been super busy falling in love and planning a marriage! I hope you'll forgive me. We set a date of January 10th so I am feeling the crunch of that on top of all the Christmas stuff!
In the coming weeks I am going to try and write as much as possible when I can and schedule the posts for you guys. I am open to any and all suggestions on what you have done in the past for your Holiday Marketing Plans. I even want to know the things that didn't work for you. Learning from your mistakes can help the whole gang!
Anyhow, post comments about your plan or send me an email to MarketMyShop@gmail.com
