The August Challenge

Kudos to everyone who joined the first week of the Summer Challenge. Come back tomorrow to see everyone that participated. But today, we're talking about...

Just a little something to keep us on our toes this month.

This is prime time for us to start getting our shops up to speed. We need to be adding inventory. Increasing visibility. Christmas is just around the corner, so now is the time to ramp up and get ready.

For the first week of August, your task is to complete one or more of the following...

  1. A new listing in your shop (50 points)
  2. Revamp an old listing in your shop (25 points)
  3. Promote others in the challenge on one or more social media platforms (10 points)
Tag your new or revamped listings on Facebook, Instagram, or Twitter using #CCCOEchallenge. Tag your promotion of others as well. Or post your new listings as a comment on this post. And next week I'll have updated point totals for everyone. 

Happy challenging.
