Daydreams & Discounts

July 2, 2014

Today I started a new adventure. I entered the world of blog sponsoring!

Maybe, when you've been looking around a bit on this blog you might have noticed the link to my personal blog in the upper bar. It's a blog that has little to do with designing and business. Instead it's a place where I can share my feelings, visions, hopes and personal stories.

As much as I like to blog myself I love to read other people's blogs, especially the personal ones. And it didn't take me long to find out that a lot of these bloggers sponsor each other in order to reach a bigger audience.

They sell small advertising spaces in their sidebar to fellow bloggers in order to make a little money and the sponsor hopefully benefits from reaching another audience. Although I liked the idea I didn't feel the need yet to let my personal blog grow. I'm happy with the readers that stop by to take a peak, but that's enough for now.

But the idea stuck in my head and I started wondering if it would be a good move to get my digital design work known to a bigger audience. Since the proof is in the pudding I decided it was best to eat that pudding to find out ;-) So I bought a little advertising space for a month at Daydream In Blue, a UK Lifestyle Blog written by Tom Keeler.

Tom does a little more for his sponsors than only displaying their ads in his sidebar. Each month he writes a blog post about the sponsors that cover the sidebar in that particular month. I've asked Tom to offer his readers a 50% discount in that post on every purchase they make in my Etsy store before the end of August.

It would be great to get some new readers and clients from this action, but I don't want to leave out my current readers. After all, I'm really glad you are taking the time to read this blog and check out my digital creations!

So for all of you lovely readers I'm sharing the promo code that I give to Tom's readers: when you make a purchase in my Etsy shop (one or more items), use coupon code DAYDREAMINBLUE at the checkout and you will instantly be given a 50% discount on the total amount of your purchase! This coupon code will be active till August 31, 2014.

Maybe I'll see you in the Etsy shop and thanks for being one of my readers!
