As many of you know, I have posted a Small Business Christmas Gift Guide for a couple of years here on my blog, and it has always been very successful. This year, I want to do the same – and I hope you will want to be a part of it.
This guide will help people find your products, just in time for Christmas! This year, I’m planning to feature one specific product from your small businesses. Something that you think would make the perfect Christmas present. I would love to help you show your product to the public and get word out about your awesome business. If your product is an e-book, please be aware I can only accept e-books for kindle at this time.
By taking advantage of this opportunity to be listed in my Christmas Gift Guide, your business will be featured to an average of 500,000 monthly viewers. This post will also be shared on social media with more than 6,000 followers on Facebook and Twitter and more than 19,000 followers on Pinterest.
If you want to take advantage of this opportunity and be included in my gift guide, check out the guidelines.
- Cost: $15
- Word Limit: 100 words
- Link Limit: 3 links
- Image Size: 200×200 pixels
- Deadline: October 15, 2015 (no exceptions)
How Does this Work Exactly?
If you’ve never been a part of this Christmas Gift Guide before, let me give you some more details. Basically, this is your chance to advertise on my blog post and show my readers how your products could make great Christmas gifts.
You will get to include a short paragraph explaining the featured product and telling about your business, as well as three links – for example, a link to your website where they can purchase products and two links to your social media accounts so they can follow your business. You get to choose which three links will be included, but please don’t send more than three. You also get to include a photo of the product or of your logo – whichever you choose. The photo should be no larger than 200×200 pixels.
I will be working to promote the post and your products to thousands of people. I won’t be the only one sharing this post either, and if each person on the guide shares it as well – that’s even more views and exposure for your business.
Here is the link to the last Christmas Gift Guide I did so you can get a better idea of what this will look like. Of course, this year’s guide will be a little different, but even bigger and better!
If you are interested in participating in this opportunity, just email me back with your information (your ad copy, links, and a product photo). I must receive your information no later than October 15 in order for you to participate. After the deadline, I will begin working on the blog post, which will go live November 4, and will be shared numerous times after that date.
Finally, please know that if more than two people email me with the same business (for instance, if two people sell Mary Kay products), I will have to choose the first person to email me as the one to be featured. It just wouldn’t make sense to have two of the same businesses in this guide, so get your emails in as soon as possible. I would hate for you to miss out on this opportunity.
As if getting the name of your business out to more than 500,000 people isn’t enough, you can also be a part of a Group Pinterest Board where you can pin your products and business information for all the pinners out there. These pins will be viewed by my more than 19,000 followers. That’s a lot of extra exposure for your products, friends! If you are interested in this bonus opportunity, just include the link to your Pinterest in your email to me.
Group Board Rules
- This board is ONLY for images having to do with your shops, businesses, books, etc. that you are advertising on my blog. If you are not sure about an image or have any questions, please let me know.
- There is a limit on how many pins you can add to this board. Do not pin more than five images per day. For example, if you sell candles, there should be no more than five candle images per day and those images should have to do with your shop/business.
I know that’s a lot of information, so if you have any questions please feel free to contact me: firstname.lastname@example.org. If you are interested, please be sure to email me your information by October 15. If you know other business owners who would like to participate, feel free to tell them about this opportunity.
I hope that you will choose to participate in this opportunity and together we can make this the best Christmas yet for your business!
