Yes it’s that time again, nearing the end of the month and time to see if anyone is interested in taking part in the daily listing thread for May 2017.
This month we are having a bit of a change around with a different approach to help with promotion, so rather than the usual ‘what name shall we have this month’ we are going for a single name that we hope will help in maintaining visibility over the long term rather than building up each month only to stop and start again the next month. The preferred name is Folksy365 with a #Folksy365 for social media. The intention is that this will help us to be found more easily for re-tweeting, re-pinning, liking, etc. There will still be a new thread each month to keep things fresh, but we hope that the change will help to support more with promotion and make it easier to join in.
If you have not taken part in a daily listing challenge before and are wondering what it is all about or how it works - in basic terms:
The daily listing thread 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 off the thread if you miss a day here or there.
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.
Visit the items of your fellow daily listers, i.e. actually click on 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! hearts are welcome but not compulsory.
Promote not just your own item, but fellow club members too, in whatever way you are able, by pinning, stumbling, FB liking, Blogging, Tweeting, just do whatever you can, and don’t forget to use the new #Folksy365 on social media to both find and be found :). 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!
