Thank you so much for your interest in partnering with us! We're very excited to begin running this program, however we were completely unaware of how popular the response would be. We had originally wanted to run one giveaway per weekend, however the huge number of responses means we'd have to schedule a year in advance just to get everybody involved. We spent the day trying to figure out if we can pull off the logistics of running a few per week so that everybody can be involved and we believe we came up with a good plan.
We decided to turn this into a Countdown to Christmas promotion where we do one per day every day. That should cover most of the people who have already responded to our request and we can continue to add any new responses to the end of the line. What we will need from you is the following:
Starting as soon as possible, please post our "blinkie" (you can download it here: http://www.stopandscrap.com/images/sas-ad.jpg) on your site and make some sort of general announcement to your readers about which day you will be running a giveaway (we'll let you know later this week when). We'll add you to our public Google calendar so everybody knows which day is yours and where to visit each day, plus we'll also link to you from our blog and StopAndScrap.com in our list of partners. It's your blog so you are free to run whatever contest that you'd like and we'll just be providing the prizes: one $25 gift certificate and three $10 gift certificates. You can offer a simple raffle, or a design contest or anything else you can come up with. We'll just send you the gift certificate codes and you can decide and announce the winners however you'd like. We will also send you a unique coupon code so that people who aren't enticed by contests will still visit your blog to get that day's coupon.
Please let us know within 24 hours if there are any specific days that you can NOT run your giveaway and we'll block those days out for you. Otherwise we'll schedule the giveaways in the order in which we were responded to. We'll announce the schedule Wednesday or Thursday and the first giveaway will be Monday 11/14.
We're really excited about this and hope you are too! Please let me know if you have any questions! :)
