August Cross Promo Train

As the summer turns into fall here at the Strategic Promotion for Success Team we held our monthly Cross Promo Train August 25-29.  This month we did things a little different and had 5 promotional days instead of our usual 4 days.

Our activities included:

 ➽ 1st Stop (8/25) Shop Hearts - Each shop lists one item from their shop which they would like others to click/view/fave. More hearts more views!

➽ 2nd Stop (8/26) Social Media Day - Each shop lists 1 item from her/his shop which s/he would like others to promote via social media . Twitter, Pinterest, Facebook, Wanelo, Google +, Blogs, etc

➽ 3rd Stop (8/27) Spread Some Love - Each shop will be pick 3 items from the shop BELOW them on the list and promote the 3 items via social media sites of their preference! They can also feature that shop in a treasury or photo collage. 

➽ 4th Stop( 8/28) Treasury PIF - Each shop will create at least 1 treasury featuring any 8 shops from the list of participants & 8 from anywhere on Etsy. Note: If less then 8 shops sign up then you can fill in spots of your treasury with shops of your choice.

➽ 5th Stop( 8/29)- Adopt a shop. Pick any Etsy shop & promote them how you want. They don’t have to be part of the spsteam. You can choose them from anywhere.

We had 18 shops who took part.  

Many items were added to favorites, shared on blogs, social media such as Pinterest, Twitter, Wanelo, Facebook, and added to treasuries.

I can't forget about all the wonderful treasuries.  I wish I had room to feature them all.  Here's just a few wonderful treasuries made during the cross promo train.

I hope you can join me on the Strategic Promotion For Success Team for the next cross promo train!


Hi I'm Amy. In my shop I offer a variety of crocheted items and occasionally I list vintage crochet & knitting pattern books. I enjoy working on custom orders. My customers often come up with the best creative ideas; and sometimes offer me the challenge of creating something I've never done before. It’s always satisfying to take a piece of yarn and create something new from it. 



  1. I had a wonderful time doing the cross promo train. Thank you to all the shops who joined me.
