Welcome to Swap & Tell #7!
A link up for shop owners trading products and posting reviews!
This link up is all about helping one another get exposure for our products and services. We all know that advertising can be very expensive, so my co-host and I are so very happy to be offering a way to get your name out there to new audiences for the cost of a trade, while helping fellow shop owners in the process.
If you are just now finding out about Swap & Tell, you can read more about it here.
Swap & Tell has opened up opportunities for me to try out new products and meet some great people with small businesses. One such person is the very lovely Heather from Woods of Bell Trees. Not only is she a co-host of Swap & Tell, she has lots of fun jewelry in her Etsy shop and some delectable candles, soaps, body scrubs and tons of other smell-goods in her JewelScent line. Before we get to this week’s Swap & Tell link up, let’s have some show and tell! In our recent swap, Heather sent me a luscious bar of orange cantaloupe soap.
Ahhh, the aroma. I wish you had smell-o-vision. This soap and I have another date with a candle lit bath very soon. And guess what? When enough of the soap has been melted away, a hidden jewel will be waiting inside. Cool, huh?
Here are some more of Heather’s products to drool over:
She has some mad wire wrapping skills! And her photographs are beautiful. Note to self: ask Heather what camera she uses.
You can see and read more from Heather over at Woods Of Bell Trees.
And now, on to the swap!
Swap & Tell is hosted on both mine and Heather’s blog, so your link will show on both blogs simultaneously, meaning more opportunities!
please read the rules:
*This link up is a SWAP so please ONLY link up posts that contain a picture of an item you would like to swap and have fun shopping around! Links that are not for swap will be removed to preserve the authenticity of the link up.
*Link up a post from your blog, Etsy, Facebook, Pinterest or Instagram that contains a picture and description of your swap item, using a permalink to your specific post not your general URL from your chosen source.
*Look around at the other links until you spy something that interests you. Visit as many as you like and when you find something you’d like to swap for, leave the other person a comment with a link to your posted item.
*Once you have committed to a swap, please edit your post with a note that your item is already swapped so you won’t continue to get offers.
*Exchange address info with your swap partner. Each person will pay shipping for the item she/he is sending.
*Please be prepared to ship your product no later than one week from the time the swap ends. (The timetable for services will be worked out between those swapping.)
*Product reviews should be posted no later than two weeks from the time the swap ends. (The review timetable for services will be worked out between those swapping.)
*The review should contain a photo of the product received; your own scoop on the product; and a link back to the product, shop or person (their choosing). (The review for services may or may not include a photo, details to be worked out between those swapping.)
*Please include the Swap & Tell button or text link back to your host in your linked post.
*Please Note: We have modified the link up to now allow participants to link directly from their Etsy shops!
* Please follow your host, Tarnished Royalty with one of the following methods:
And finally, have fun and remember, it’s all about promoting and helping one another. The value of the swap is in more than the products received, but in the exposure you will receive from reviews. A swap means a review for your product too!
