April 2009 Newsletter: Spring spring spring!

I can't wait until I truly feel spring in the air! Winter has just been so darn cold and the first week of Spring was actually the cold spell of March!!!

I know sales have been slow so I am hoping that you utilize our Crafting for Animals Guild to the maximum of your ability. Any and all exposure helps - so try out some of these tips.

  • I personally invite you to Creative Animal Relief's Earth Day Savings promotional campaign. In celebration of Earth Day, C.A.R. is hosting the Earth Day Saving from April 18-26, a promotional campaign in which you are invited to offer great savings to your handmade loving customers. You choose the discount but the savings must last the entire duration from April 18-26. Sign up for the newsletter for upcoming information:

  • Write an article for our blog and add a byline about you and your store. Writing on topics not directly related to your art (such as how you help animals) helps people get to know you! Check out Woven Dreams article on her rabbit rescue, Dance with the Bunnies Rabbit Rescue.

  • Run your own blog and post at least two to three articles on your website each week.

  • While you are at it, add our 125x125 ad image and link it to - the more relevant links you have leaving and entering your website, the more likely you will be found by google searchers!

  • Find relevant communities that you can post and share your ideas. The more people get to know you, the more they may find your store interesting and exciting.

  • Join our facebook page, loving administered by recupefashion. Join now!
