BLOG HOP PARTICIPATION

Swirlydoos Kit Club hosts a massive blog hop each  month to unveil each new scrapbook kit. We strongly encourage the manufacturers with whom we represent in those kits to participate in our hops, though we welcome all manufacturers to join in! Previous participating manufacturers have boasted increases of up to 10,000 hits to their company blogs during our hops! That's a sizeable number of targeted end users going directly to your site, and seeing your products! To participate in one of the Swirlydoos blog hops, you must be able to hop on the date specified by our hop coordinator, and you must donate a scrapbook/paper crafting prize package valued at a minimum of $25.00 retail. Your company name, your prize photo and a brief description of your products will be displayed on the Blog Hop post on the day of our hop. For more information on joining in on the Swirlydoos Blog Hops please e-mail our hop coordinator at r[email protected].

CONTEST PARTICIPATION

Previous manufacturers who have hosted contests with Swirlydoos have donated prize packages for drawings, sketch contests, manufacturer specific project contests, facebook post contests, technique contests and more! We are happy to discuss hosting a manufacturer specific customized contest with you. To host a manufacturer specific contest, which will include  e-mail, site, and blog marketing on our end you must be able to donate a prize package of your choosing valued at a minimum of $50.00 retail. Please e-mail [email protected] to schedule a date/time. We only allow one contest to run at a time, maximizing the advertising potential for the manufacturer involved.

PRODUCT DONATION – SPECIAL EVENTS

Swirlydoos Kit Club hosts multiple special events throughout the year, namely our Camp Swirlydoos Retreats. We are happy to accept product/project donations from our manufacturers for our swag bags. Our retreats are week-long scrap havens catering to every whim of our ultra crafty campers. Our incredibly talented designers teach project and technique classes, we hold contests, and each camper leaves with a goody bag that would make CHA bags look like empty zip-locks! Manufacturers who donate products for our special events get permanent ad spot placement on our retreat pages, in our swag bags, on our forums, blogs, newsletters and email blasts. If you are interested in putting your product directly in front of our girls, and getting  recognition all over the place please contact [email protected] for more information.

Swirlydoos Kit Club is open to promotional ideas that you might have, so please do not hesitate to contact us ([email protected])  if you feel that the above advertising options do not fit your needs exactly.
