Hey guys! We are looking to host a Back to School Instagram Loop!!
The Important Stuff
- Date: Friday July 27th (2 pm cst)- Sunday July 29th (7 pm cst)
- Cost: $12 (see cost break down below)
- 1 winner
- Entrants will have to comment on each post and follow the poster
- **We will NOT be accepting products for this event. Only cash for a gift card. If you would like product only events, we will be hosting one each of the next 2 months with another gift card event in early December.
I would like to gather at least 9 other shops so we can offer a $100 Amazon Gift Card (or more) up to one lucky fan to help with the cost of school supplies! The Loop will run for 3 days so that it is short and sweet. You will have to post at the initial time of 2 pm cst so that the loop can be completed. Failure to post will get you dropped from the rotation until you can post, so please be prompt. I will add everyone to a IG Chat so we can coordinate easier.
I will provide the image to post. While not required, it would be great to give a preview (I suggest 2-3 days and then the day before) as well as reminder posts each day to encourage interaction. This is optional and you know your fans and market better than anyone so feel free to do what works for you. As long as you can post at 2 pm cst you are good. :)
Once the contest is closed I will randomly pick a winner within an hour of it closing using random.org. I will then post the winner in the chat. Everyone will then check to make sure the winner is following them and commented on their post. The winner will be announced within 24 hours of the contest closing so please be prompt in responding.
I believe it is really important for these kind of events (especially when cash is involved) to have transparency. I think it makes everyone feel much better and much more confident when everything is out in the open. I ran several networking pages in the "before time" (aka before I focused on my own business) and always approached it with this manner. We had great turn outs and a wonderful response with the openness! So, with that in mind, here is the break down of how your fee is spent!
$10--->goes directly to the pot for the winner
$2 (minus Paypal Transaction fees)---> used directly for boosting and ads
I will purchase the Amazon E-Gift Card the morning of the event (just in case we have any last minute additions or dropouts). Once the gift card is purchased, I will post confirmation so that everyone sees it was indeed purchased. After it is purchased, there will be no more additions and if you fail to post at all, you will not be entitled to a refund so please be sure you can post. I will also post the information for the boost/ads so that everyone can see where the money is spent as well.
Upon acceptance I will send you an email and invoice via Paypal. Payment claims and holds your spot. Should something arise and you need to back out, please let me know as soon as you can. You will be entitled to a full refund all the way up to the day before the event (2 p.m. cst July 26th). This is to avoid any last minute changes to the graphics or amount. So, again, please only submit if you can post.
I look forward to us working together, grow our Instagrams, and giving a lucky fan an awesome boost for their school supply budget! ~~ Jessi :)
