My birthday is February 10th, so I like to do something to celebrate in my Etsy shop by offering some kind of special deal or discount. But this year, I have an even better idea. Let’s have a party!
I’ve been a consultant for Pampered Chef and Stampin’ Up! in my somewhat distant past, so I have some experience doing the “home party” type of thing: someone hosts the party, I come in and demonstrate my products, the guests buy, and the host gets rewarded based on those sales. I’ve thought about doing something like this for Rewondered, bringing samples and inventory to someone’s home and basically doing a mini-craft fair for their friends. I’m still interested in that (and if you want to host something like that, let me know) but this is going to be an online party.
Here’s how it works:
- If you want to be a host, email firstname.lastname@example.org
- I will send you a personalized coupon code. This coupon code is good for 10% off anything in my Etsy shop and expires when I get up to turn it off on March 1st.
- You can use the code yourself and pass it along to your friends so they can also get 10% off. Remind them they need to use the code in order to get their discount and for you to get credit for their purchase, and they need to make their purchases in February. The code can be used as many times as you and they want.
- On March 1st, I will tally up all the sales made using each coupon code (using the amount after the code is applied), then send the host a gift certificate for 10% of that total. For example, if $100 of products were purchased using the code, the amount after the code is applied would be $90, so the host would receive a gift certificate for $9. And yes, this works for ALL purchases using your code, even your own!
I’ll be adding new products throughout February, so if you see something you think a friend of yours would like, send them a link and include your code. Share your code on social media and via email. Put your code and the link to my Etsy shop on Post-It notes and stick them everywhere. However you want to promote your party is up to you.
You can sign up to host anytime between now and the end of February, but the earlier you do, the longer you have to collect orders. Due to limits on the number of coupon codes Etsy allows me to have and my own sanity (don’t laugh, I think I have a few shreds left!) I can only allow the first 50 people who sign up to host. So what are you waiting for? Email me now!
Oh, and if you don’t want to host and don’t know anyone who is hosting, but want that 10% off, just use the code FEBRUARY10
