Time to Get IN. THE. MOOD.
Happy Holidays
Hi, Everyone!!

Yes, I know 2020 has been the strangest year of most of our lives, but the holidays are almost here, and YES!! Let's get in the mood!!

A day later than promised, but sometimes life gets in the way, as it did yesterday so without further kerfluffling, here are the final details for our Etsy holiday promotion, now officially known as the

"Holiday Sparkle Event"!

Here are the deets on the Event:
1) Open to everyone with an Etsy Store.
All contributors will get the entire optin list! All contributors will be listed on the contest landing page with a brief description and a link to your store.

2) We are giving away 10 "Virtual Gift Baskets",
each with 2-6 gifts in the bundle, PLUS everyone that registers will receive a special holiday printable bundle. The event will be powered by RafflePress and prizes are randomly awarded by the software.

3) All participating stores MUST contribute a prize to the "Virtual Gift Baskets",
and you may contribute more than one if you wish.

4) Participation in the Printable bundle is optional,
but good PR since everyone that enters will get this one!

5) All stores will offer 50% off for the month of December in their store using promo code HOLIDAY50.
If you offer non-digital products, please reach out to me at [email protected]

6) Delivery of Prizes:
For the printable bundle for all registrants:
please send your printable to [email protected] with HOLIDAY in the subject line. These will be bundled and delivered in one zip file upon registration

For the Virtual Gift Baskets:
Delivery process will depend on how many products we have for each "basket".
If there are only one or two, then I will let the Contributor's reach out to the winner's directly to deliver the prize - but if we have 4 or more gifts in a basket, then I will set up a dropbox for the gifts. I am going through the contributions now, and will make the determination before our next call on Tuesday.

For any questions -
please email [email protected]
with HOLIDAY in the subject line

We still have room for you if you have not signed up yet:
The event will start December 1, and yes that IS the day after SYSH V2 ends...Get the full details and get signed up HERE.

Our usual Thursday call will be TUESDAY, November 24!!

Canva is wonderful but.....
there are a lot of things that I just cannot do with Canva or Affinity,
but as a content creator that loves creating original looking covers for my planners, I use Adobe Photoshop and Adobe PDF every single day. They are ALWAYS open on my desktop. I have the full creative suite, which means it is always up to date - and it's the one monthly expense that I NEVER question - it is a necessity!

Adobe only holds one sale a year, and it is the Black Friday sale - it runs from now through Nov 27th - and you can get 25% off your monthly subscription of the full Adobe CREATIVE CLOUD SUITE

Bonus -
happy to share my resources for free PhotoShop brushes and other resources, plus my cheat sheet of keyboard shortcuts - and I am NOT an expert but would be happy to do a workshop on creating original planner covers from Creative Fabrica graphics - and in a way that meets their TOS ;-) To collect your bonus - please send the receipt to [email protected]

Whether you are new to Etsy, or want to take your store to the next level - here's the products I recommend to help get you started and get you to the next level:

• Taking the First Steps...
Dvorah's recent course, Become a Digital Shop Owner 2.0, is a complete step by step guide to getting your store opened and your first products uploaded. Her teaching syle is precise and methodical - it's as close as you will get to a live instructor without having to leave home!. This is the perfect newbie guide - but also great for those of us beyond the TOTAL newbie stage that still have not gotten our store fully loaded and selling. ;-)

• For ANY Level Etsy Store Owner:
Craft Inspector
and the OTO, Craft Niche Analyzer. And yes, I bought them both! I have to grade this as one of my best purchases of 2020!!

Between the two products - you will be able to drill down and uncover every bit of competitive info you need to optimize your selling efforts - no more manual digging as this software does it all for you! From keywords to tags, to shopping cart and store data - this one does it all. I spent 2 hours playing with it last night and it reallllllly does the job!

And a special note - this is downloadable software, that you OWN - and you can install it on 10 computers, PC or Mac - so you can outsource the research to your VA!!!

You really need to visit the sales page to see what this puppy does, just know that it does everything you need and then some, and it is a ONE-TIME COST

The OTO is amazing - CRAFT NICHE ANALYZER - it pulls data from 14 different craft marketplaces for you: Etsy, ArtFire, Bonanza, Folksy, Amazon, eBay, RedBubble, Society6, Zibbet, Spreadshirt, Uncommon Goods, Handmade Artists Shop, Cafe Press and Zazzle! Get the real data on average In-Baskets per product, average pricing, reviews and so much more: 26 DIFFERENT METRICS ARE AVAILABLE!!

P.S. There are a TON of great bonuses too - including the Amy Harrop course on marketing with Infographics!

Start Your Side Hustle Giveaway V2

This is SUCH a fantastic deal - worth the price just to get Connie Ragen Green's Affiliate Marketing course - which I picked up last year for $97, and have never regretted! Yes, it is included in the bundle!

The Bundle is worth more than $1,500 in value - my contribution alone includes a brand new 2021 Digital Planner + $75 in credits, a combined value of $115 - far more than you are going to pay for the entire Bundle!!

And the best part about the Bundle? One PDF to download that includes direct links to all of your purchases - no need to register for each one separately! So you can take your time perusing the FREE gifts, and not stress over registering for the BUndle as well!!

Get it all for the little bitty investment of $27.00!!
