My it has been a very busy week! It ran by quite fast this time, could not believe it is Friday already-TGIF!
If you follow along on my blog, you may already know that I have signed on to be a consultant for Close to my Heart. This is my second time around and this time I am working it like a business.
So, the first order of business is marketing! That’s why you are reading about this now
I really do love the product line. I have had many opportunities to play with other product lines that are available these days. There is no shortage of shops online and in your local town, to keep all of us happy in our crafting needs. It took me awhile to kinda discover my taste in design. Hope that makes sense. And I love a vintage style, maybe even shabby chic. But, there are times when a card or a mini- album just screams for color and class. That is where I put Close to my Heart(CTMH) in my scrapbooking and card making.
What brings me to my title. There are so many companies that have guest designers to showcase their product line. It really is a genius marketing strategy. Most of the designers you are familiar with started out as avid crafters, just like you and me. What makes you buy a particular paper or embellishment? It is how it is designed by the people chosen to do just that!
Within CTMH, the consultants, plus the idea book aide us in presenting the product line to the public. But, I am just one person! If you only see my designs your not looking at all of the potential that embellishment or stamp has? So, I decided, I want some guest designers! Why not? So please keep reading and I will explain it all to you.
What’s in it for you? First, you have the opportunity to score free product from me and CTMH. You keep whatever is left over after your projects is finished.
Internet exposure. Drive more traffic to your blog, YouTube channel and Facebook pages.
Start building up your customer database- if you sell products yourself.This is a great way to network with people who have similar interests.
Plus- it is fun, fun, fun!!
What do I get? I get much of the same benefits. In fact, I gain exactly what you do. With the addition of hopefully gaining some sales or even those interested in being a consultant with CTMH.
If you have read this far, it is safe to say you are interested in this proposal? Good, let me tell you what is required.
In order to participate, you must have one or all of these-
A blog. Youtube channel or Facebook page( Facebook pg. must be a page dedicated to crafting, not your personal page.) You will receive various products to showcase CTMH, and will design something from what you receive. Plus I will throw in some goodies just for you
If this sounds like fun, and you would like to join in, please email me at Ancheta@Centurylink.Net with Designer in the subject line.
There is only a few spots available, so act fast!
I will contact you, and give more detailed information.
Thanks Friends, Happy Scrappin’
