Do you sell beads or write and sell beading patterns or tutorials? My World of Beads offers several ways in which you can promote yourself and your beadwork. If you have been enjoying this resource, then we would really appreciate your help in keeping it alive: not only will your promotion help your own business, but it helps us to cover the cost of hosting, building, maintaining and blogging on this website, so thank you for supporting My World of Beads.
Shops: Promote Yourself
If you own a beading shop or sell beads, there are various ways in which you can promote yourself.
Promote yourself by taking out an advert that will appear on every page across the website. This can be placed in the right hand column (you can already see a couple of options). If you are interested in this, then please bid on the advertising by clicking on the link to ‘Project Wonderful‘ at the bottom of the ad box. You can pay as little as $0.01 per day and your ad can run for as many or as few days as you like, so this is the perfect way to get your name out to all those beaders out there.
If you would like to discuss other advertising options, for example a larger site-wide banner, then please email email@example.com.
Sponsor a Page
Promote yourself by sponsoring a page. If you look through the beading supplies section, you will see that it offers a single page post on a variety of different beading supplies, including beads, tools, thread and other materials. This gives a perfect opportunity to send readers direct to your product. For example, if you sell Kheops, we can place a link to your website at the bottom of the Kheops page. Readers will have learned all about the beads, been offered the opportunity to buy some patterns to use them and your link will send them to a place where they can also buy the beads.
We offer the chance to be a sole sponsor of the page or to have shared sponsorship alongside other bead shops. For more information, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Designers: Promote Yourself
If you are a designer who already sells your tutorials online, then you might like the opportunity to promote them on My World of Beads. You will see that each of the pages about the different types of bead (for example, Honeycomb Beads) includes a list of patterns at the end of the page. For a one-off annual fee you can add up to twenty tutorial promotions. You will need to send an image of the tutorial, along with the url of the page where it can be purchased. This can link to a page on your own website, or a product in a shop (for example Etsy or Facebook). If you would like to learn more, please send an email to email@example.com.
