Black Friday Holiday Promotions from the CIJ team

Contributor post by Amy of BeadsAndThreadsbyAmy

The season is upon us!  A time for family and friends.  A time for caring, sharing, and giving.  Why not let the Christmas in July team help you find that special gift that shows just how much you care?  Just be careful, or you may wind up in Ken Nesbitt’s predicament!

December I went shopping
for presents for my friends.
I bought a bunch of knickknacks
and a lot of odds and ends.

I picked the kinds of presents
that everyone enjoys:
Computer games and candy
and a wagon-load of toys.

I brought them home and wrapped them.
I placed them near the tree,
but liked them all so much
that I unwrapped them just for me.

Would it be wrong to keep them?
I guess it just depends.
Can someone loan me money
to go shopping for my friends?

–Kenn Nesbitt

It is as easy as that. Please be aware that if you pick a made to order item, then both items will be shipped when the second item is completed. It is still always best to ask questions first, and avoid issues later. Free USA shipping will still apply. If, by chance two people want the same item, then it will be first come first serve. All invoices are dated, and timed, so this shouldn’t be an issue. Start making your list now!”

Small Business Holidays – Black Friday, Cyber Monday And More

Contributor post by Alicia of AliciasFindings

Every year small shop owners look forward to the sale days around Thanksgiving.

This year Black Friday is on November 28th, Small Business Saturday is November 29th and Cyber Monday is December 1st.

I asked Christmas in July members “How do these sale dates benefit your shop?”

This is what they told me….

Patricia and Rebecca of northandsouthshabby told me:

Our shop will be offering a 10% discount on all items purchased from November 28 through December 7.

This year we will be increasing our advertising about our sale on social media venues. We will be doing this before and during the sale. With all the changes on Etsy, promoting on sources other than Etsy is becoming more important.

We hope to incorporate more visuals in those ads, perhaps creating staged vignettes with our items. Right now though, that’s only an idea, and time is flying! LOL!

candy frizzell of TrueEarthDesigns said:

I think having sales on these dates gives you a chance to change your shop around and renew older pieces. It is 4 days of posting new pieces, using social media sites to bring people to your shop and sales allow you to restock (look for new gemstones). I am using Etsy on Sale for discounting my items, but also you can use a discount code for an extra discount, a push for that maybe sale, for those 4 special days.

Alicia Bell of AliciasFindings states:

Having sales on these dates helps you to find new buyers. By networking and having a sale,it gives you the ability to widen your reach to a new bunch of buyers (target market). I am using a coupon code from now thru December 1st.

So while you are enjoying the Holidays with family and friends, remember to shop Small!
