A few further details:
When does the sale go live? 10 am EST on September 13th!
How many items are included? There are 64 individual PDFs included.
Is there anything specific my first post should say? In the past we have had a special write-up, but it has never performed exceptionally well. I encourage you to try to connect with your followers in an authentic way, as things will perform much better if you share your own words!
How many times should I share this? This is not a one-size-fits-all answer, unfortunately. What we do NOT want to do, is bombard our followers with the same information time and time again because they will become numb to it! Instead, it might work better to share about it in a post, talk about it in stories, and then share a regular-content type post before sharing another in-feed post again. If your followers are not used to seeing you selling to them, be sensitive to that! You can easily fit this collection into a regular post by being a little sneaky!
Do you have any tips for sharing this collection? A great method that has worked well for many is to actually MAKE some of the items from the collection and talk about the process, why it felt so good for your family to do it together, and why they would benefit from this in your stories! People don't want to miss out on cool things! I know that it is uncomfortable for some of you to show your face in stories, but it is SO helpful for connecting with your followers! They want to see you and hear why you love this so much!
Can other people share my link for me? Yes! Many people ask for friends to share their link!
Can I post other peoples photos from the promotional photos folder? YES. These photos are for all of us to use!
Do I need to tag other creators if I share their photo or product? You are not obligated to do this. Many creators do tag or talk about others when sharing because of the community aspect!
Will @thesimplelivingcollective and @tanglewoodhollow interact with all of my posts during this time? I will do my very best, but please know that it can be very challenging for me to keep up with this many creators! I will check in periodically throughout the day to see how I can help and engage with you! Bekah may also help with engaging with posts on The Simple Living Collective page.
Where can I share this sale? You can share your link anywhere that you may advertise! This means you can share it with your email list, your instagram followers, your facebook followers, your blog, or more!
