For those of you who have not read her post explaining the Promo Swap and how it works, here it is:

More information about swap/promo -
The promo swap is easy – people send a sample item you wish to help promote your shop. You can send coupons, fliers, for example if you make beads - small bag w/1 bead enclosed w/your business card, lots of ideas to help promote your shop. When I participated the cost was $7.00 for shipping. Everybody paid to 1 person via paypal (best promo than purchasing an Etsy showcase) These items will be put into packets and redistributed to those that contributed. When I participated I had a nice assortment of items that contained that had yarn samples, gift tags, pins, buttons, scrubbies, business card magnets, coupons, when I participated it was great exposure to my shop plus also promoted sales.

My Texas Friends Wants to Feature You in 2011

Yes My Texas Friends, it's time to start scheduling our Meet and Greet Series again.

Those who have seen them before, every so often we'll feature someone who posts in the My Texas Friends forum threads located in the Etsy Forums. We do not want to leave Anybody out this year.

Here is how it works- We post your Etsy Mini here on the blog along with some information from your Etsy profile and anything else you would like for our readers to know.. like if you are having a sale during the time your feature is running, or if you do custom work, appearing at any craft shows, etc.

This will be a first come first served buffet line. Please either leave a comment here or in our monthly thread or as a third option, contact me via Etsy Conversation  aka "convo" so I can add you to the schedule.

2011 is going to be an outstanding year for My Texas Friends!
