Just Sayin'

Once upon a time, I owned an online shop where I sold lots of pretty girl's dresses, skirts, etc. But I closed it after almost two years of owning it. I know how hard it is for handmade online shops/boutique to manage their shop. It's not just about the management. It's everything. 

multitask Internet Multitasking

When I had my shop, I designed, sewed and created all of the items in my shop. I shopped for materials. I designed and drafted my own patterns. I was my own photographer. I listed them manually, one by one, in the shop. I did my own shop banners, shop buttons. I packaged the sold items and went to the postal office to send them out. I did absolutely everything! 


So, when handmade shops sponsor a giveaway, please understand that they are not giving their wares for free. Online handmade shops and boutiques need to grow their fan base/reach to grow. They also count on word of mouth marketing strategy. So, it's totaly understandable why the giveaway entry forms include the option to like/follow them. As these are optional entries, you actually aren't forced to do those task. Of course, doing them would mean you will have more chances of winning. I understand that as a giveaway entrant, it's quite frustrating to see a very long entry form BUT you have the choice to just do the mandatory entry or to do the optional entries of YOUR CHOICE. But then again, with all the fabulous and gorgeous handmade shops sponsoring the giveaway, would you really want to miss out on their updates, special deals and steals?  And to all the shop owners out there, I salute you for all that you do! 

When I organize giveaways which I host in either of my three blog, I don't ask my sponsors to pay me. I only ask for them to donate something as prize. But to compensate for all the work I do to organize everything, I also add in the entry form as optional entries likes and follows for my own social networking sites. All the other bloggers who help me promote the giveaway also get optional entries in the form in exchange of their promotion. I think, that is also understandable, right? But these are all optional entries. You have the choice to do them or not to do them.

Well, I'm just sayin'... ^^)
