Well, I am just awe struck by the amount of positive feedback and interest in SpookyTime Jingles! I knew it was a pretty good idea as there are so many of us that love our spooky-sweet holidays but geez..this is just amazing.
The artists joining STJ this week are:
1)SuZ of SurpriseDelightJoy
2)Annie of AlleghenyAnnies
and two more artists are in the works!! Woo Hoo...we have FABULOUS artists at STJ!!!
So,for those of you joining...you are on notice to create!!! You have at least 2 weeks before our launch.
I need everyone to commit to a minimum of 3 months on SpookyTimeJingles. As the newbie on the block it will take sometime for people to find us. I need everyone to
understand that these things take time and we will grow at the appropriate rate. I am fully committed to babysitting SpookyTime Jingles and to market it in as many ways as I can squeeze in.
Here is my question for you. Instead of me just saying that there is an advertising fee of $75.00 a year...how about each of you tell me what you are comfortable paying for the year. This fee will be non-refundable and it will be prorated based on the join date & months left in the calendar year.
I will add two polls at the top of the blog, based on dollar amounts to spend on advertising and you can choose that way.
I want to be fair to all budgets BUT please keep in mind that we get what we pay for. I will be paying the same fee as everyone else plus the cost of marketing materials (business cards that each vendor will receive, flyers, buttons, etc....)
Also, because 1/2 the year is over, we can consider spending a lil more this year to help get STJ off the ground. Whatever the concensus is, is what will be.
I do not want joining SpookyTime Jingles to be a hardship for anyone. I know that many people across the country are struggling in this market. I just want us all to be able to make money doing what we love!
We artists have the best marketing tool there is...OUR Mouths! So, lets use them to spread the SpookyTime Jingles word!
Happy Sweet n' Spooky Creating~
