It's Better Handmade Guild Collections Contest

(1/3) > >>

myeuropeantouch:
The contest is up and ready to be seen by handmade fans everywhere!  So, go ahead and vote, tweet, facebook, stumble, and blog to your hearts content and let's see who created the favorite collection!  http://itsbetterhandmade.com/ibh-artfire-collections-contest/ 

FidelaTresori:
I get really confused by all of these blogs, as I'm not familiar with them.  Is there some connection between IBH and HAF at all?  And why are all the collections from Artfire?

How does one get featured on these blogs, like TheFind, etc.  I'm assuming you have to be a 'follower' or member of these blogs?  I really don't know and it all makes my head spin. LOL

I guess I just haven't a clue how all these are linked or network. Someone please educate me?

Blogged , Facebook, Tweeted and voted.... :-*

Kimberly and Andrew own the website It's Better Handmade and the Artfire Guild comes with it. And this is a Contest of Collections made by Artfire Members, you can vote on them....if you like.
On etsy they are called Treasuries....so it's something simular....

Guess the rest is better explained by Kimberly or Andrew, and Yes, IBH is connected to Haf, they have the same owners.  ;D

The Find is a website like Google and we are at their mercy when they put our items on there....please, someone correct me if I am wrong..... :-\

I just posted this contest, so you all can vote for what you like....BEST....

I feel your pain!  There are probably millions of blogs out there that might do a feature on you.  It's a matter of finding the ones that are a good fit.  Each one has different submission guidelines and some don't allow the artisan to submit themselves at all (you have to be recommended).  Any time you get featured on a blog, it's good.  It creates a link to your shop or your blog - whichever link the sponsoring blog includes.

It's Better Handmade (IBH) was recently acquired by Kimberly and Andrew.  It's not an extension of HandmadeArtists, but a compliment.  It's another place to get your work seen.  It is easy to get your work featured on IBH.  You do have to register, but then, simply follow the submission guidelines (the link highly visible near the top of the page).

If you would like to get your feet wet on a smaller, more focused scale, there is a blog ring here, too.  You commit to participate (sign up) through a thread, then each week, you write a blog post on your blog about someone else and how wonderful they and their work is/are.  One week, it's your turn and everyone who committed features you on their blog, creating those ever-important links.  Check the Outreach Events Promotions and Contests section of the Forum for more details. 

Hope this helps!
