Back To School Promo's

It may just be me but this summer seems to be going by faster than usual. Considering we reside in Arizona, that is good news for us. For those with children still in school, that means that the usual rush begins to get ready for the upcoming school year.

For those of us in the retail trade, it also means that we should start marketing and advertising those items that are appropriate for the annual Pre-School preparation buying rush. This can be an excellent time to pick up some extra sales. Granted, not every merchant of handmade and handcrafted products can take advantage of this but many can.

Many merchants of handmade and handcrafted products use this time to clear out items in preparation for the upcoming holiday season. Merchants who create and sell products in the categories of Accessories, Bags & Purses, Bath & Beauty, Children, Clothing, Crochet, Jewelry, Knitting, Leather Goods, Needlecraft, and Paper Goods might want to consider taking this time of year to take advantage of this pre-school buying rush.

To assist our listed merchants in doing this, The Hand Made Product Directory will be placing on line in the directory a special Back To School Special’s page. It will be advertised on the Front Page of the directory. The page will go on line 8/2/08 and come down on 9/1/08. Each item listed will feature a 125 X 125 pixel picture of the item linked to the store owners items sales page.

We will be releasing press releases about the Back To School page and submitting it to all the large search engines along with other promotional activities. If you have items you wish to place on this page, the cost is a ridiculous $1.00 per item so you can list several items very inexpensively. Don’t be surprised that once shoppers get to your store that they pick up additional items. Not only can you list individual products, you can also place a Store Coupon on the page.
