I'm currently working on the first annual Wickedly Chic Holiday Gift Guide. The Gift Guide will be available on the Wickedly Chic website starting approximately October 25 (possibly a bit earlier) and ending somewhere around the second week of January. It's going to be really gorgeous, fun & enticing to buyers who are looking for those special gifts. I've arranged the dates so that buyers can get an early start on their shopping and then hit some post-holiday sales if you offer them.
The guide will have its very own banner on the Wickedly Chic website for easy access. It will be mentioned to an ever-growing readership base every single week in the Giveaway newsletters and will also be advertised on a number of blogs & forums. There will be many opportunities for the entire universe to see the Gift Guide & plunk down their dollars at your independent shop.
See the attachment for a sneak peek at the design :)
There will be eight categories in the Guide:
Be Dazzled (jewelry) - 1 opening left
Light Up (candles, tarts, incense & candle accessories)
Pamper Me (bath and body) - all sold out
Delightfully Decadent (food & drink products)
Fabulous Extras (stocking stuffers & small gifts)
Just 4 Kids (child related items)
Fashion Frenzy (clothing, accessories, handbags, etc.)
Budget-Minded Luxury (fabulous gifts under $25.00)
Each category will have a limited number of spaces. Spaces are available on a first come first serve basis (of course). Contact Liz@wickedlychic.com to reserve your spot & arrange for payment. I will be more than happy to answer all of your questions.
There will be one featured space (250 px by 250 px) for each category (all of these have been sold) This will appear at the top of the category page. The cost is $65.00 ($21.66 per month) for the featured space. You will be able to write a short paragraph describing your business (2-4 sentences will be good) & you are welcome to add a coupon code to your description.
The regular spaces in the category will rotate on the page so that everyone has a chance for a great spot. The cost for the regular spots is $50.00 ($16.66 per month) and these should be 200 px by 200 px. These spots will also be able to have a short paragraph & you will be welcome to add a coupon code to the description.
You will need to have the photo of your item & shop description to me no later than October 15, 2007.
Businesses are welcome to purchase space in more than one category...and yes, I will give you a discount!
