Friday's Featured - We Need Soap & Candle Artisans

Boy, you'd have thought it would be easy getting artisans that wanted some free business promotion, but that's not the case. While 6-7 businesses showed interest in being featured, only a few filled out the questionnaire. We'll assume that everyone is getting ready for the fall craft show season, and doesn't have the time. :) I am certainly busy myself.

So here's how Friday's Featured works:

1. You post a comment here. Make sure your email is linked to the post, so I can contact you.

2. I send you a questionnaire with some easy questions about your business. And I don't even make you fill them all out. You can pick and choose which questions you want to answer.

3. Send it back to me. I take the questionnaire and the info from your site and build a little intro and post it here on my blog.

4. Then I post a link on my side bar that your company was featured. That's giving you multiple backlinks, helping with your website SEO.

5. Finally I tweet about it a couple of times and post it on Facebook and so forth. Lots of little promotion.

The rules:

1. The business must sell bath and body products, candles or items related to these industries (examples of related items could be handmade candle holders, soap dishes, molds, etc.)
2. The business must have handmade products by your company.
3. You need to contact me and fill out a short questionnaire.
4. You allow me to use a few photos from your website or blog in the feature on this blog to showcase your work.

What's the catch? There isn't one, although a link back and sending some readers to this blog on your own facebook or twitter is appreciated. I'm trying to build readership, and you're trying to promo your business. It's win-win.
Just post a quick comment here.
