Title: Facebook Spotlight Instructions & Group Assignments for Spring 2012
Post by: iKnitQuiltSew on February 21, 2012, 11:21:08 AM
And here we go!  Welcome to this round of the Facebook Member Spotlight.  Everyone has been assigned to a group (see below).  Each week, one member from each group will be spotlighted.  Each member of that group will write a blurb on their own Facebook page promoting the featured artisan.  Once you have written that blurb, post in the thread relevant to that week – that’s so we can all go comment on each other's FB posts.  Please noteyou are NOT required to spotlight every featured artist on your Facebook page - just the one from your own group.  You are welcome to also spotlight an artist from another group, but again, it's not required.


Example

Annie Artist is featured this week in my group.  I go to my FB page and type, “I just discovered Annie Artist and her wonderful work!  Go check it out for yourself at http://www.somelink.com.

Then I go back to the thread where I found out Annie Artist was the featured person and reply to the thread stating, "Mine is done -here's the link (to your own FB page so we can go comment).  Then I  would click on all the posts noted, visit the pages, like the post and perhaps leave a short comment.

Again, you've committed to do this once a week for the featured artist from your own group, but you are welcome to spotlight other featured artists if you would like to do so.

Because of the large number of folks that signed up to participate (hooray!), I've divided the large group into smaller ones so that this FB Spotlight isn't still going at Thanksgiving!  Here are the group assignments with artist name and link to be promoted:

Sandi, are you not on a team? If not I'd like to suggest to others participating to promote iKnit at some point for the time, organization and effort to put this together and keeping it going  ^-^

I don't have a functional Facebook page so I'm just the organizing volunteer on this one.  But thank you very much for the offer!

Whenever it's my turn instead of balletboi78 I'd rather use my fname which is Paul Bruschi. Thanks again for including me in this activity. I can't wait to help everyone else too! :-)

Not too late!  You are in Group Six ( a new group).  I reasonably certain you won't be that last one to ask to join!  This week, pick any of the featured artists to spotlight.  Here is the link to that thread: http://handmadeartistsforum.com/forum/index.php/topic,6637.0.html

I looked at the link provided and it seemed to be missing a "/" so I added it and tried that.  No luck... it just took me to the shop home page.  Then I did a vendor search in the shop and there is no vendor named WireQueen!  Hopefully, WireQueen will read this and get us a working link.  Thank you so much for your repeated efforts!
