Title: Newest Twitter Ring
Post by: beadthing on October 10, 2012, 07:45:04 PM
Ok, LET ME SIMPLIFY THIS A BIT

There will be 5 HAF’rs every week.  These 5 featured artists will be posted on SUNDAY  each week. Each of the participants will tweet for each of the 5 featured artists for each week.


I would love it if you would do 1 tweet per day, however, I will settle for one per week.  This is not difficult people, all of us have 5 minutes to do this, it is going to help you in the long run by bringing attention to your tweets, and the Handmade Artists Forum and Shops which includes you.

Make sure that you follow everyone on the Twitter Ring List, please.

Tweet from the featured artists Handmade Shop or the shop of their choice which will be listed.


Make sure your tweets are original.  As in the original twitter ring information
“Simply Tweeting a name and a link that you've copied and pasted with no added details or effort on your part is not fair to the other artists in the group. “

Make sure you are not just “retweeting”


We don't want to flood Twitter with 40 of the exact same Tweet and be ignored, or worse, give the impression that HAF'ers aren't the amazingly creative, incredibly hardworking group of individuals that give their time, talent, and spirit every day to make HAF the PREMIER online community for all things handmade.

Finally, the #1 Most Important "Rule":  The hashtag #HAF must be included somewhere in each Tweet for the Twitter Ring.  It's the only way Andrew and I can keep tabs on things to make sure the promotion is going smoothly.

Please PM me with any questions or concerns that you have and I will be happy to help.

As long as we're spreading the word about the HAF Community and our amazingly talented members to a wider audience, we're running a successful promotion.

Ok everyone, since I have a small show on November 3rd that I am still creating for and getting ready for, let's start this one on Sunday November 4th OK.  So sign up and start looking around the shop for those things that you really really want to get tweeted. 

More to come in a few days as to exactly how this one will work, no matter as long as we tweet right.

Saw a couple of posts with no twitter url's. please come back and post those.  You can go ahead and click on others and follow their twitter feeds.  Need to follow everyone.  List is ongoing and again, we will start this session at the end of the month.  Want to give everyone time to get signed up.

Hi there;

I really want to participate in some of the promotions and contest but i seem to have a hard time keeping up.  The computer work seems as if it takes more time than creating my dolls.  Can I just get in on the tweeting process?  I dont expect to be tweeted but I would like to be a part somehow.  I need to hire my grandson to do some computer work.  I am working out a schedule  i am thinking about one day a week to be on the computer all day.  Anyone got any suggestions?  With the holiday craft shows coming up my head is spinning.   :P

Hello Whatever...if you figure out the time quandry, let the rest of us know.  :laugh: I have been making lists and have yet to scratch off anything.  ;)
Seriously, the best advise I can give you is do what you enjoy.  Computer time and social links are important for our on-line businesses, but don't try to over extend yourself.  Find what is you like (or at least is not a big chore) and focus on that first.  I like to write (and talk) so I do most of my promoting thru my blog.  And for facebook and twitter, it's hit and miss.  So I use Hootsuite to scheduale my tweets for a week at a time (at least that's my plan).  If you find you like tweeting, go mobile so you can do it as much as you like.  Just remember to relax and to have fun...stress kills your creative juices.

Now for this tweet round, I'm in...please push my shop here.

Post by: beadthing on October 15, 2012, 11:21:44 PM
Yep, absolutely, everything Debbi said.  It is about having fun and helping yourself and others at the same time.  It is a jog, to be sure and one that has to be prioritized.  Most of my tweeting, facebook and blogging is done at night somewhere between 10 pm and 3 a.m.  During the day, I work on my jewelry or I am working on a crochet project. 

You just have to figure out where everything fits.  I can tell you that the more you promote, the more you will get out of it.  It does help.  I have not had sales yet, but I am getting comments and emails about things all the time, so I know that people are seeing my things but they are also seeing sometimes more of other artists work than my own.  So I know I have to get more done and photographed and on the site and shop. 

Good luck and tweet as you can, I am not a master here just helping out with promotion. 

Please post your tweet url so I can put you on the list.

Ok, just saw this post and I will get you added to the list. just needs to be this afternoon after my class is done.  Sorry.  Yes online shops and other things do get in the way, even if you can do this once a day for each person on the list at some point that would be great. Some just don't realize the impact this had for us all especially the shop as a whole.  We don't start til the end of the month ok.

Please delete me from the list, thanks.

WE START ON SUNDAY NOVEMBER 4TH.

THANKS

Post by: beadthing on November 03, 2012, 10:42:50 PM
I have modified the instructions for the twitter ring that will begin tomorrow. The previous information no longer appears in the thread.

Also, not noted there,   

There will bee a separate thread for each weeks Featured Artists clearly marked with the date for the beginning of the week starting with new Featured Artists.  This will be within the main Twitter Ring thread.

Also, please if you have any questions, please PM me.  I am happy to help in whatever way that I can.  This is the peak season and I would like to see sales increase for all of us through this promotion.  Wouldn't we all.

And for Pete's sake, have fun with it.   :D
Title: Re: Newest Twitter Ring
Post by: beadthing on November 03, 2012, 11:09:30 PM
Ok the list has 14 participants on it so far.  Come on folks, let's get some more sign ups here.  We all need to get our names out there and promotion is the best way to get it spread around.  I don't know how many twitter followers each of you have but I have over 400 so if everyone has at least that many (and I am sure my number is low) then multiply that by God knows how many followers each of your followers have that will see these tweets. 

These promotion rings are some of the best ways to get yourself noticed.

Let's all give it the good ole college try.

Are we supposed to be tweeting the shop itself or an item in the shop? Hmm. Don't know. But I tweeted the 4 for the week (besides mine) just now. I'll try to tweet them all again at least once daily. Here's to sales for everyone!
Title: Re: Newest Twitter Ring
Post by: beadthing on November 04, 2012, 11:53:04 PM
Either would be fine, shop or item. but you will have more to tweet if you use items. and then the tweets will be different.  Don't forget to write something with it to draw people to check it out.

And there is nothing wrong with "tweeting your own horn"   ;D

Post by: beadthing on November 05, 2012, 12:25:37 PM
Since Mercedes shop is on vacation mode, then I will move her off the list to the next week's featured artists. 

Please tweet the following INSTEAD of Merceds.

I will keep checking her shop to see when she is back.

What am I missing, found only two that tweeted my shop. How does this work, we tweet these 5 shops once a week or every day for a week....

Retweeted some again....while I was at it...
Title: Re: Newest Twitter Ring
Post by: beadthing on November 05, 2012, 11:45:14 PM
Once a day is preferred, or whatever can be done.  I have to fess up,  I am late getting started myself.   I will get my hootsuite going in a few and get mine scheduled.  It really does help out when you are doing several of these things at once. 

Again my apologies for being the one who has not done it yet.


EVERYONE ELSE.  If you asked to be a part of it,  then I humbly ask that you do your part.  It is not fair for one or two of the group to tweet your products if you do not return the love.  Please let's be fair and all participate or notify me by PM that you want to be removed.

Thanks
Title: Re: Newest Twitter Ring
Post by: beadthing on November 06, 2012, 12:25:56 AM
DONE!!!!!!!.  I have scheduled all my featured artists for this week.  Tweeted from their shops, different item every day, for the rest of the week.  Glad this is done.  Now on to FB Spotlight to post for everyone on the list or schedule for everyone on the list. 

I truly hope this inspires sales for everyone that has joined these groups. 

Can't wait for the blog ring to get started tooooooooo

Make sure you use #haf.  so that it can be tracked.  I am so sorry to hear about your brother, Peace be with you.  It is always sad to lose people, but a sibling or parent, seems to be the toughest, at least to me it has been.

Well, hello everyone....

had just asked Pam to take me off of the twitter ring....  :( :o

1. for some odd reason my twitter account was hacked/compromised, don't know from where  :o

2. I noticed the participation is not what it should be for all of us who signed up.  :o ??? :P :evil: >:(

I cant see myself spending my time promoting all of you and the reciprocation is not there.....  :-*

Pam had asked me to write my reason's here too, so she will not be the only one 
continuously harping on this ongoing issue. If you are not committed, don't sign up!

I still love you all,,,  :-*
Title: Re: Newest Twitter Ring
Post by: ChaseYourDreams on November 07, 2012, 09:16:33 PM
Is someone checking to see if the tweets are being done? I know that I've tweeted all 5 shops at least 3 times this week and I've put the #HAF in all of them, I'm pretty sure. Hopefully all of them went through. I'm on dialup so my connection is sometimes pretty darn slow and I frequently tweet, click "post" then go off to do something else online while it goes through, so I'm not usually there when it tells me that my tweet was posted.  Can anyone tell me if mine have all showed up? I sure hope so and I sure hope that everyone else is tweeting. I know I speak for all of us when I say that I REALLY need to start making some sales. :-)

Sorry to hear that Monika.
 However people are going to do what they are going to do, I nor you nor anyone else can make people do anything. I decided a long time ago that I will do my part in anything in life that I choose to participate in. I've lived my life that way. I've also learned that in things like this, I'm not responsible for what other people do, I'm responsible for my actions. Therefore I do not let them bother me. Regardless if other people do what they are supposed to do.

I know in the end that I will get what I deserve and they will get what they deserve regardless.

Yeah, I threatened to beat her with a stick.  Not.  But it at least alerts others on the ring to get busy but more than that to alert others to the possibility of a problem with Twitter

Well, I've gained a few followers on twitter and gotten some views, but I'm still waiting for that first sale. Hopefully things will pick up now for the holidays.

Just finished my tweets for the list. Guess tomorrow we have some new ones, huh?

Yes, there will be new ones listed for tomorrow.  I will try to get them up later tonight.  New followers is a good thing and in time will result in sales.  We just have to keep plugging away at the promotions.

hey everyone...sorry I've been lax this week, it's just been one of those weeks.  I have tweeted everyone (except myself) yesterday and today...I will continue to tweet them next week along with tomorrows new shops.  I have also retweeted what I could find.  I didn't even know I was up for this week, since I didn't get to read this thread until yesterday.  :P  So thank you to everyone who tweeted me.  ;)

My apologies.  I lost the list and had to redo it in order to get this weeks list up.

here is the list.  We have lost Monika at myeuropeantouch and Mercedes is still on vacation mode.

So we will do this weeks list and then we will start over again from the top.

If anyone else would like to join in, please post your url for the shop you want promoted here as well as your twitter url.  We will continue to add to the list as long as anyone new wants to come in.  Come on newbies, we are glad to have you.

We will also be tweeting blogs from the blog ring for a couple of weeks as well as the FB spotlight, so let's get ready, get set and go for the week.

Couldn't get the link for Gina's Corner Crafts to work so I did a search for her. Hope this is the correct link to Gina's shop:

I see what you mean.  This is the way it was given to me, but I will make sure that I check with Josey to see if I made a mistake and if so correct it.  Thank you for letting me know.

Also, thanks for your participation.

I've retweeted also...but I'm not seeing a lot of the new people tweeting.  or maybe that's just my poor timing.

I'm not seeing the new ones either.  Mine are for the most part scheduled for am hours. usually between 9 and 11 a.m.  and they are scheduled for everyone on the list every day.  Let me know if you folks are not seeing them so I can check to make sure that my schedule is set up right.

All of my tweets are showing up on my page, but if I do a search for #HAF I'm not seeing all of them. Weird. Anyway, I've done my 5 for the day. Didn't get them done yesterday. Sorry about that. Wasn't home most of the day.

I just did a search for #HAF and didn't see any for my shop! Is that how to do it?
Jane
Title: Re: Newest Twitter Ring
Post by: ChaseYourDreams on November 17, 2012, 09:52:26 AM
Jane, for some reason lots of the tweets don't show up when I do a search for #HAF. Here are the last two I did for your shop:

Gorgeous cats eye gemstone, copper wire wrapped necklace #HAF https://handmadeartists.com/product-details/Jewelry/Wire%20Wrapped/Light%20Brown%20Cats%20Eye%20Cabochone%20Wire%20Wrapped%20with%20Copper%20Wire%20on%20a%20Black%20Satin%20Kumihimo%20Braided%20Rope/?pid=20120903191816dcc50 …

Lovely copper cuff bracelet #HAFhttps://handmadeartists.com/product-details/Jewelry/Bracelets/Copper%20Wire%20Cuff%20with%20Painted%20Wood%20%20Red%20and%20Brown%20Beads/?pid=20120720070955820dc …

Post by: Jewelrybyjane29 on November 17, 2012, 12:00:14 PM
Thanks!  I know I have been doing tweets but sometimes I forget the #HAF so I redo it.

Post by: beadthing on November 19, 2012, 12:57:56 PM
Ok here is this weeks list.  We are down to 12 people now.  Mercedes shop still indicates on vacation so we will have to skip her again for now.

However, if there are others out there who would like to join, please feel free to send me your url for the shop you want promoted and your twitter url to my pm and I will get you added to the list.

BTW, using a scheduler such as Hootsuite takes a lot of work out of this and makes it much easier.  It is a bit time consuming at the front end but then it is done for the week.  Think about it.  If you need help just let me know and I will be happy to answer any questions.

This weeks list is:

OH FORGOT.   Don't do that.   Don't forget the HASH TAG #haf
Title: Re: Newest Twitter Ring
Post by: Jewelrybyjane29 on November 20, 2012, 06:30:57 AM
You are so right Pam!  I just signed up for Hootsuite and was able to figure it out and post all five tweets for all five on the list and it was so much easier.  Nosy question though! Does anyone use it to promote themselves? 
Thanks Jane
Title: Re: Newest Twitter Ring
Post by: ChaseYourDreams on November 20, 2012, 09:40:46 AM
I don't want to have to try to figure out how to schedule tweets. LOL So I just went to everyone's shops, picked out several things I like, and dumped the links (along with my thoughts about them and the #HAF tag, into a file. Now, I can just go there, cut one, and tweet it. I've finished my 5 for the day (and yes, I do promote myself).

It's a wonder I'm still awake and functioning. I spent from midnight til 4 am up with my little toy poodle who was having puppies. 3 little Apricot boys, all healthy and shiny,, sired by my friend's Cavalier King Charles Spaniel. So they're Cavapoos! :-)
Title: Re: Newest Twitter Ring
Post by: Jewelrybyjane29 on November 20, 2012, 10:44:38 AM
Hootsuite wasn't too difficult to figure out, if I can do it anyone can!   I bet those puppies are adorable!  Have you posted pictures yet on facebook?
Title: Re: Newest Twitter Ring
Post by: beadthing on November 20, 2012, 04:18:13 PM
Well, duh me.  I had to have a bit of help with hootsute.  But once done, it is great and such a time saver.  By the time you select and dump into a file you could have them scheduled and move on to the next thing on the agenda.

ALSO,  we are going to be working with YankeeBurrowCreations (Debbi) to also tweet some of the blog ring.  I will let you know when. 

We may spend a week with just that since our list is short.  I tweet them as I comment on them individually but I think a specific tweet would be great as well.

I use hootsuite to not only tweet other peoples stuff...but yes...I most definetly promote my own stuff....It's like sending out a weekly flyer.  ;)
I've been crazy this week, so I will set everyone up tonight.

Debbi

Yeah, getting really bad in my old age.  Promote Promote Promote.  But I always forget to promote my own.  Oh well.  I'll get to it.

Thanks Debbi for your help with the hootsuite.

Post by: tgbears on November 27, 2012, 05:38:13 PM
OK, got them all scheduled. The site never send me any email updates on this, so sorry I am late. I just came looking and saw that it was already underway  :(
Title: Re: Newest Twitter Ring
Post by: beadthing on November 27, 2012, 09:22:19 PM
Since we don't have very many people in the group, I just go through the list over again every week to change it up a bit.  We will continue to do this for a few more weeks and see what happens. 

List goes up on Sunday generally, Monday at the latest.  You could I think set up notifications so that you get notified when there are new posts here in this thread.

Andrew could answer that one better than me.

Sorry, everyone. It's been a very busy week and I only remembered today to start tweeting again. I do apologize. I'm starting today and will try to do so every day if not twice a day. Hope everyone gets lots of views and some sale!

ok, did yesterday, got today...
Pam, just a suggestion, it might be easier to follow if you start a new thread every week when you set up the assignments.  ;)  espcially since I can get lost easily.  :laugh:
Debbi
Title: Re: Newest Twitter Ring
Post by: beadthing on December 03, 2012, 04:26:34 PM
Not a bad idea Debbi, I was thinking about that and also switching from 5 people per week to only a couple each week, especially since we don't have that many anyway.

I forgot to post the list for this week so I will start a new thread today and get that going.

Thanks again.

Andrew, this is a new one, restarted with new ideas for the new year and there are only a couple sign ups.  So it really has not ever started.
Title: Re: Newest Twitter Ring
Post by: chainmaille on February 14, 2013, 09:55:38 AM
Well if you want to get it going let me know, I'll send out a newsletter next week if you want. I want to get through the server move first.
Title: Re: Newest Twitter Ring

I'd like to see it get re-started again.  I have it on my daily spread sheet so I don't forget to tweet.   ;)
