A few years ago, we committed to doing a blog give-a-way every month for a year. It was fun for our customers and lots of great eco-fashions were given away. Unfortunately, limiting the give-a-way to our small blog didn’t really get the word out about us, and only about 1/3 of the winners left a review of the product they’d won. Since then we’ve had the occasional blog give-a-way when we get in something new (which we plan to continue), but we’ve been trying to figure out the best way to use our small marketing budget to directly benefit our customers and also get the word out about FaeriesDance.com.
So this year, we’re trying something new that we hope you’ll like. We’re working with other bloggers to do give-a-ways on new websites. The idea came to us after working with Whitney from Eco-Vegan Gal who did a fantastic review video of three of our bras. I’m copying it here if you haven’t seen it before.
The way it will work is that each month we provide an item for a blogger to review. Once they’ve had time to put it through its paces, they post about it on their website and we offer up a give-a-way to their fans. Of course, we also want all of our current customers to have a chance to win, so we’ll be posting the monthly give-a-ways on our Facebook page as well.
Best of all, most of the bloggers will offer you additional entries if you repost the give-a-way link on your Facebook page. This is where you can not only help yourself out by increasing your chances of winning some great organic clothing, but also help us out by spreading the word about our company.
There is sooo much we want to do in the future. How many of you would like to be able to search on your size and just see what’s available that will fit you? Or see more and bigger images of the products? Or have a wider selection and expanded size ranges? How many would like to see us start manufacturing our own line or reinvent some of the best-selling products from the past that got discontinued? All of these things are on our wish list, many of them come directly from comments and feedback from our customers. But all of them cost time and money. So please, share our information as much as you can so we can start checking off our to-do list. 🙂
We’ll return the favor by continuing to focus our marketing budget in ways that benefit you directly and by implementing as many of your great suggestions as possible.
This month, check out blogger MakobiScribe.com who reviewed our organic Alba No Wire Bra. They will be offering a $50 gift certificate to FaeriesDance.com to one winner. At the end of the month, we’ll have a give-a-way on FromPDXwithLove.com, who is currently reviewing the 100% organic cotton Michelle Dress.
