How does your shop look? Are you stocked up?
For the month of September, I'm challenging you to work on filling your shops. And what about those items that have been sitting and not selling for ages? Perhaps it's time to refresh those listings so buyers see them with new eyes.
Another thing you can do to show team spirit is to help promote your fellow CCCOEers. Do you have a large Twitter following? Do you have a blog that needs content? Stuck for things to add to your Facebook timeline? This is a chance to share the spotlight with others who may have items your followers might enjoy.
Don't have the time or energy to come up with things to share on your own? Check out #CCCOEchallenge on your favorite social media platform and reshare or retweet. Even a "like" helps with visibility.
These are the main components of the Challenge. When you complete any, post them in the comments thread of the "September Challenge Entry Post". I'll tally the points weekly. Winner(s) have the option of being featured in a future blog post.
Each week there will be a Special Challenge. This week I'd like to see your workspace. A picture of your workshop, photography setup, or anything to do with the products you have in your shop. (For a knitter like me, that's my comfortable spot in front of the TV.) Share it on any of your social media outlets (or on your shop update) for 3 extra points added onto the usual "share" points.
