Treasury Madness--The Sequel

My addiction was fed again with yet another new Treasury today!

It's a hot, humid day and something cool just seemed the way to go. So my theme for this one???

Minty Fresh!

I've had wonderful comments made and the sellers whose works I've picked have all been so nice.

Speaking of the sellers, we need to touch base on something I left out of my last

When you create a Treasury, be sure to let the sellers know that they are being featured! Let's face it, if it wasn't for their items, you would have no Treasury!

The easiest I've found is to contact them from their item page itself--this way they know exactly which of their products is being featured.

Just a quick note is need to write a novel's worth. A short, "hi I've featured you in my Treasury" is appropriate--and oh yeah--make sure to include your Treasury's link in the convo!

I've found that 99% of the time I will get a very nice thank you back, which is always great. I've also ended up having some great back-and-forths with some of the sellers I've featured...learning and sharing a lot with them.

Remember, your not just creating a Treasury, you are also networking. Promoting your own store by making contacts and in some cases, forging friendships.

Sending a note a seller's way also gives them the tools to promote as well. "Hey, I was featured in so-and-so's Treasury! Come take a look!" Or doing what I'm doing by posting screen shots both on here and on my Facebook Jewelry page.

I'm a big believer in 'what goes around comes around'. You help other sellers and they will help you out in return.

So go forth and create your new Treasury and once it's up and live remember...GO TELL THE SELLERS! :)
