Promotional OpportunityYou've all heard the saying 'a picture speaks 1000 words' and that's so true when it comes to our products. Without images to show what we make we'd likely not have any buyers.
Shop Handmade UK is now at the point where I'm designing cards, flyers, online adverts & press releases therefore I need images for these to help buyers see the quality of the goods that all you talented designers make. To do this I need your help and permission. If you would like to submit your images to be used in Shop Handmade UK's promotional and marketing material or have any questions then please get in touch via our contact page or leave me a comment here. As these images will be used for print they must be 300dpi high res. If you do not have any in high res then your images may be used for online ads. Please only send a link to your product and I'll be in touch to request high res images.
Where will this marketing material be used? Business cards would be used daily, flyers are being designed to be distributed at events such as the Misi event in Bristol and Shop Handmade UK is exhibiting at Handm@de Fair at Oxford in November so these will be going directly to buyers. Images would also be used for online advertising on quality and well known websites of course.
As mentioned above Shop Handmade UK will be exhibiting at the Handm@de Fair at Oxford in November and in the lead up to this I'd like to launch a Competition to win a selection of gorgeous handmade goodies. This will be promoted mostly outside the crafting community with an aim to draw buyers to the directory and in turn to your selling sites.
I'm aiming to promote the competition at Handm@de Oxford with the closing date shortly after. This will be promoted on the Competitions page on the website, anyone who donates a prize will have their item shown with a link to their store &/or blog. If you would like to donate a prize then please get in touch via our contact page or leave me a comment here.
