Sounds good, Donna.
 
Ok, Donna, Terri & Nancy, you can start advertising each others stores. Choose how you want to do it:
 
1. Advertise the store on the same day every week.
2. Rotate the day you advertise a store. If you advertise Donna's store on Monday, then next week you'll do it on Tues. The following week on Wed and so on. (I hope that makes sense)
 
Use whatever forum you have to advertise (Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, etc.) Please advertise at least once per store per week. You can do more if you want. Do NOT put up an individual card without a watermark.  
 
Let's help each other.    (Don't forget to advertise your own)

OK this might not exactly fall into what you want, so let me run this by you.  I truthfully have no idea how best to do this and until I see some models as examples, here's what I want to start with and I can do it today.
 
 
I thought I would resurrect my blog with a post on what influences you to create.  I could hit everyone's store at once using links and names if you like.  If you have links to images WITH watermarks you would like to share with me, email me privately.
 
For example, the moon influences me.  Yes, sounds totally bizarre but truth be known.  I will explain when I do the blog post.

Hi Donna, that's fine. Anything that goes out to the internet can help. If you don't receive specific cards from people, then just use their store url. Until we get really going people may not want to give out cards. Not sure. Anyone in our group is welcome to give Donna a link to specific cards. Please make sure they have watermarks.

let me start with store URLs.
 
If anyone wants, answer this question - what influences you most in your artwork or gets your creative juices flowing?
 
As I said, for me, it's the moon!  I'll explain later!
 
I'll take responses here unless you want me to start another thread.  And by the way, I'll get my own website moving too and I started a thread asking for links to fellow artists' GCU stores if they would like to be listed in my links section (I would ask that my store be linked back to in return).

My response to you question would have to be my husband and our local Vet Center.  My husband is a Vietnam Veteran and he has PTSD. We've been going to counseling at the center for two years. It's really helped. He has group meetings once a week and I go to a wives meeting a couple times a month. The people at the center have become like family. Our counselors and the other vets are wonderful! We love it there.  
 
So, my inspiration is my husband and all the other veterans we've met. These men and women are amazing. I decided I wanted to give something back to them, so my greeting cards store and Zazzle Military Gear store were born.

I've started out with a new blog on a developing website spotlighting my own creative influences and the response from Sherry.  I've been able to add images that are links direct to a few sample cards (Sherry, if you want them removed, let me know - when clicked, they go right to your image in your store).
 
Feel free to give a read.  http://sunshinescreativeendeavors.weebly.com/1/post/2013/07/what-influences-me-t o-create.html
 
If you want me to add your comments with links to your store and a few cards perhaps highlighting your style or your best sellers, feel free.  This blog has been tweeted and shared on my FB page and I hope to share it on my personal page and spread news of it.

I came up with a new blog idea that I plan to do on Sunday if anyone wants me to mention your stores.  My topic will be butterflies and what they mean to me and a few little tidbits and links to interesting articles on them.
 
If you have a special card featuring a butterfly, please PM me if you would like me to include it.

Posted my latest on butterflies with links to my own images and one shared by Nancy's Nook.  I tried to keep in mind what Corrie said.  Let me know what you think.

Hey Guys, since we're on the topic of marketing and advertising, I know where you can get some help.  I'm learning from a top marketer who is giving away his entire system for free when you join this program.  You'll also learn how to drive lots of cheap traffic as well as free traffic to your website.  Here's the link.
