ArtFire Thursday, July 1, 2010
The artisan-organized Christmas in July Sale on ArtFire is scheduled to take place from July 12th until July 25th on the site. All members are welcome to participate in this sale, but participation is completely voluntary. Members who do take part don’t necessarily need to have Christmas-themed items, but they do need to be offering some kind of promotional offer (free shipping, on sale, etc). Members can tag projects with “TDOCIJ” for Twelve Days of Christmas in July to be included in the Christmas in July Trend Page on ArtFire. Read the rules for participating here. ArtFire has also put together a collection of promotional badges members can use on their blogs, websites, and even on their studios to help promote the sale. We’ll also be featuring Christmas in July items the week of July 14th in our Collection of the Week email.
ArtFire is also offering three contests to help promote the sale. Remember that these contests haven’t yet started, so stay tuned for specific dates and time lines to enter.
The Christmas in July Contest on Twitter – Look for our special message about the Christmas in July sale from our @ArtFire Twitter account during the sale and retweet it for your chance to enter to win one of four $25 shopping sprees for the Christmas in July Trend Page!
The Christmas in July Contest on Facebook – Be sure to Facebook “like” our Christmas in July Trend page and you could be randomly selected to win a $50 shopping spree for the Christmas in July Trend Page!
The Christmas in July Contest for Blogs - Create a blog post off-site featuring products from the Christmas in July Trend Page and you could be randomly selected to win a $100 shopping spree for the Christmas in July Trend Page!
Again, these contests are not currently going on, this is just the general outline of the contests we’ll be running. Be sure to check back in the Staff Announcements section of the Chatterbox Forums for complete contest details, which will be posted later this week.
