Hi there, I was reading up on my social media last night and in this book I’m reading about Pinterest I came upon a concept that could work great in getting the word out about my shop and also be fun for the participants. Before launching into this contest, I’d like to hear your opinion on the question and if you think that you and your followers might be interested in such a game/giveaway.
So here’s my idea:
Each participant creates a board on his/her Pinterest profile called Things I’d like to buy from Knitting in France
They would then pin 10+ items from my Etsy shop to this new board. The board that would then subsequently get the most repins would be the WINNER. So you could engage your followers asking them to check out your board and repin items from it in an attempt to win this Pin It Win It contest.
The winner would be announced after a period of 8 days – I would decide on a day the board can be published and when I will take the stats to see who the winner is.
I’m thinking the winner would get the following: 1 skein of sock yarn, the new Sock Ruler (a new and totally indispensable tool for sock/mitten knitters, and some handmade stitch markers. That would be a gift of about 25Eur worth of supplies which I think is quite nice.
Have you ever done something like this before? If so did you like it? Do you think a contest give away is a good method of promoting a small business such as mine? Would you participate if I did go ahead and launch this contest?
Please let me know and if you have other suggestions for doing this or for a different price for the winner do share your thoughts 🙂
Until next time, as always take care and enjoy your crafting
