Who Else Wants To Win Free Stuff By Doing What You Already Do

I don't know many people who wouldn't like the opportunity to win some free stuff by practically doing nothing out of the ordinary. I know I would!

So are you curious now? Wanna know what I'm talking about?

Well here's the deal.

The EtsyMom Team has a new event coming up up in October that's just for you. You don't have to do anything you don't already do & you're going to have the chance to win free stuff.

Are you ready?

Yep! That's right! We're hosting a color palette challenge for all you EtsyMom Team members & it's going to be a blast!

Before I tell you about the challenge...
Let me tell you why you should participate.
  1. It's going to benefit your business
  2. You're going to make money
  3. You going to be featured in some treasuries
  4. You're going to be blogged about, Tweeted about, & Facebooked about
  5. You're going to get increased exposure
  6. You could win some really cool free stuff
Does that sound good? 

Are you ready to know what you need to do?

  1. You're going to sign up by clicking here & filling out this form. - You've got until September 16th to register your shop.
  2. Once you're registered, you've got until October 5th to make items that will go into your shop using one of the color palettes below per item. You can enter two items into the challenge. The color palettes are based off of Pantone's Fashion Color Report for 2011 so your items will be using trendy colors!
  3. Once your items are made & photographed, you're going to list them for sale in your shop, but DON'T make the listing live until October 5th!!! You'll need to tag your listing with "EMCPC" in order for your entries to count & want that first photo to rock since that's what people are going to see in the treasuries.
  4. Treasuries of all participating shop's items will be made & posted to the blog on October 10th.
  5. Voting will run from October 10th to October 14th. Anyone can vote, so spread the word!
  6. There will be a 1st, 2nd, & 3rd place winner based on the number of votes each item receives. Ties will be decided via Winners will be announced on the blog on October 17th.
  7. If you are a winner, you'll have your choice of a free item from one of our sponsor shops. 1st place chooses first, then 2nd, then 3rd.

It's totally up to you as far as what you want to give away in the chance that a winner picks your shop.
