Folksy gift guides?


(Nobias Art) #1

Since I am part of the Folksy community I have been following the gift guides and been hoping and dreaming (like a child at Christmas time to get that special doll or toy :smiley: ) that I will appear in 1-2-3-4-5 of those guides. Keep going there and check the ones I am interested buying from and been hoping that one of my listing will appear as well, but so far none.
Does anyone know how can you get into those? Is there a list you can apply to or admins randomly choose?
If anyone knows anything regarding this, please share your opinion, thought, experience:)

Thank you

I am sure I saw your products in some guides and/or Folksy favourites so I went to check:

Your items are beautiful and the photos are very good so I am not surprised :slight_smile: .

Did you go though all of them??? or is there a quicker way to see if you have things in the gift guides?

Well done @NobiasArt :smile:

I didn’t go through all of them, but I remembered I saw NobiasArt’s makes somewhere so I checked just the two, I am not sure there is a quicker way though…

Yes I’ve seen @NobiasArt beautiful jewellery in the gift guides.

I’m excited to be in a couple of guides too.

Love your polymer clay creations:) Some of them really made me smile! :smiley: which is great!
And thank you for the compliment Karen:) Then I was wrong and checked the wrong gift guides, will keep a better eye out, just to make my heart thrilled! Even if I don’t sell much, but being there means the admins admire my work, which is awesome:)

Hi
Folksy start threads and ask for suggestions for gift guides. You can suggest your own items or other peoples products. At the moment there is a thread “More suggestions for our ‘Gifts you can personalise’ guide please”. You just add a link to your product.
I assume if you have tagged your items well, Folksy would be able to find your products for appropriate gift guides.
I have a few items in some gift guides and it does feel good!
Hope this helps
Andrea

The content is chosen by the Folksy admin team - but as we run up to Christmas we’ll be sharing details of the guides we’ll be promoting and asking for your suggestions in threads here :smile:

So make sure you are signed up for the latest news - the email will be going out this evening, or just check here for the gift guide submission threads

THank you Andrea, I have only seen one thread where admins been asking for gift guide ideas, but had nothing to apply there :slight_smile: OOh they look for tags as well to choose their items? That is useful to know, because I think I will need to work on my tags then:)
Thank you!
Orsi :slight_smile:

Thank you Hilary, I did sign up the newsletter a few months ago and sent a long e-mail with succestions a few weeks ago, but I’m not sure if I have sent to the right person. Because where it said to click or send was impossible, so i had to send my suggestions as a reply which i don’t think was a good move:) Will check out the new newsletter now :wink: thank you again

Just to let you know, I’ve created a Gift Guide category where you can see all the gift guides we’re currently working on and reply with your suggestions.

Just seen one of my cards in the Gifts for Cyclists guides and it cheered me up on an otherwise boring day :smile:
Thank you for the Gift Guide category Camilla it will make it a lot easier to find where to submit links for consideration.


(Sally Eira) #15

hi camilla,
i can’t seem to get link to work.
thanks.


(Camilla) #16

It should be working Sally. It links through to the gift guide category where you can see all the different threads/topics in one place.


(Sally Eira) #17

thanks - got it working now - sorry !
