Anyone interested in a January Daily listing challenge thread?

(Natalie Ofkants) #1

Its come to that time again for me to reach out and see if anyone is interested in taking part in the challenge of a daily listing club for January 2015?

If you have not taken part in a daily listing club before and are wondering what it is all about or how it works, please pop across and visit the Club for December Stars and see how we operate, but in simplistic terms:

  1. The daily listing is a personal challenge to list an item a day for the month, it is a personal challenge, so no one will shout at you, or hound you out of the club if you miss a day here of there.

  2. Once you have listed your item, you come to the thread for that particular day and tell us what you have listed, with a link to that item, so we can check it out too.

  3. Visit the items of your fellow club members, actually go and check out the item in their shops, a simple way to show you are taking part and fellow club members really appreciate that you have stopped by!

  4. Promote not just your own item, but fellow club members too, in what ever way you are able, by pinning, stumbling, FB linking, Blogging, Tweeting, whatever is in your remit of possibilities, in this way we all support and promote each other, and hopefully raise awareness of our crafts and of Folksy too, all of which has to be a good thing.

Please remember that although sales cannot be certain, additional promotion can be, which has to be a good thing!

Every month we think of a new unique name for the club, and to get the ball rolling I’ll suggest some names off the top of my head, but would really appreciate your name suggestions to add to the list, then we can all vote on our Fave name, the most popular one will then be adopted!

January Name Suggestions!

January Jewels
January Gems
January Resolutions
January Japes
January Sellers
January Carnations
January 'incarnations’
January 're-incarnations’
January Garnets

Okay, you can probably guess I was getting a bit stuck on titles, any help and name suggestions would be appreciated!

Looking forward to seeing who would like to be involved.

Im looking forward to joining in again in January, the start of the month will be a bit wobbly till the kids go back to school. Having said that… Santa brought them some very cool toys so I may be MIA while I have a proper play with them when the girls are at school :wink:

(Sue Mellem) #9

Yes please, count me in. I’ve really enjoyed taking part during 2014

Thanks so much for running it Natalie @NOfkantsCurios

(Deborah Jones) #10

I would like to join in too , my shop is looking quite depleted and could do with re-stocking.

(Adien Crafts) #11

yes, I’m in Natalie, shelves are a bit bare at the moment so need to get re stocking too xx

(Thecardjeanie) #12

Yes please Natalie,

My sales were dismal in November and December but I know that I need to keep promoting so please count me in again.

I’d like to give this a try. I shall be away from home in the middle of the month but I should have internet access most of the time and I should be able to keep up up reasonably well. It will be useful to me to have the discipline to keep me in touch.

(Julie) #14

Yes please Natalie - I know I dropped the ball in December, but only because other channels were super busy. Looking forward to getting back on track.

Happy New Year everyone!

(Susan Langford) #15

I will give it a go too please! Not done this before so will need some hand holding! Might actually make me make stuff instead of planning!

(Jacqueline Austen) #16

Hi, yes please if that is ok? I plan to do a lot of making and making stock, so I hope to be able to keep up. Any name would be fine with me.

Happy New Year everyone xx

(Natalie Ofkants) #17

Thank you everyone!

The birthstone for January in Garnet and the birth flower is a Carnation, wondered if anyone minded linking in somehow, such as January Carnations, or incarnations or re-incarnations?

(Roz) #18

Not too sure I’m ready to be re-incarnated just yet! January Gems, Jewels or Garnets gets my vote.

(Kirsty Macdonald) #19

Hi all,

I would like to get involved again (after dropping off the scene for a bit at the end of the year!). One of my New Year’s Resolution is to improve my consistency in marketing etc! Really need the accountability that this thread brings! Looking forward to catching up with everyone!

Hope you all enjoy your New Year’s Eve (however you will be celebrating)!

Yes please Natalie x
