Christmas In July HUGE Party Announcement!

I told everyone a couple days ago that I was working on a HUGE party announcement. Many Etsy Store Owners have been participating together in a big "Christmas In July" selling event. That event is almost over with about a week left to go. If you are one of those store owners, you are going to be jumping up and down with joy, when you you finish reading this post.

For those of you who don't know about the Christmas In July Etsy Event, here it is in a nutshell......

It is one big event where everyone pulls out all the stops in an effort to move a bunch of merchandise, kinda like a Christmas sale at a big department store, except this sale is in the middle if July! In most cases the items have nothing to do with Christmas. It is just a big, big, selling event designed to spark some sales.

So, what is the HUGE announcement? Here it is.........

I am going to help everyone who wants to enter,... with a GIGANTIC .... Christmas In July - Times Are Tough Thursday link party.

For CIJ Etsy people, this means you will have help from me during the last week of your CIJ sales event. One big, last, push for sales, courtesy of Tools Are For Women Too! I know that some of you are having a pretty rough time out there. I really want to see all of you be successful and make some money this week. And as usual, I will be offering my help for Free. Everyone will be able to advertise 3 of their store items at No Charge to try and drive some much needed traffic their direction.

For those of you who are not part of the CIJ Etsy event, you will still be able to participate in my link party. No problem at all. Bring your 3 best items as usual. I love all of you and don't want to leave anyone out. This party is Free to you too!

Here is what I need from everyone in order for the party to be a success.......

1.) I need all of you to help promote the party. Convo it, send some emails, post it in some forums, write a feature post about it. Do whatever you can do to make this a GIGANTIC event. I would love to see record numbers of participants and record numbers of store sales. This will only happen if the word gets out about this very special event.

2.) Did I mention promoting the party?

Here are the party details. You can copy and paste these, if it will help you promote the party.

I was wondering, do you mind if I make the button for your size smaller?
You are doing a great job at this Rory, EVERYONE WINS!! Even if we don't win an item, it is a matter of moving energy in every direction.
For me, it is more than enough meeting some of the people who visit and I have also share some ideas with the creators of the art. It is all great fun!!
