Come on! Think harder. Everyone has inspired someone at *some* point in their lives, even if they don't know it. So have you ever been anyone's inspiration? Now you can be!
We are looking for 5 people who can inspire us to make a fantastic soap! If you check out our shop's Etsy Inspirations section, you can see what we've already been inspired to create.
You can also read about the soaps, and what we're doing with them in our blog post entitled Viral Marketing...
To summarize, we created a line of soaps inspired by other Etsy artists of all stripes. Each soap gets listed and promoted in our shop, and carries a link back to the Inspirational Artist's shop. When its all said and done we'd like to have 20 Etsy Inspirations. There will actually be 23, as you'll see later today when we unveil the results of the War of the Heathens, but we want 20 outside inspirations.
We feel that in this tight economy, and everyone's marketing and promotional budgets being so much smaller, what could be a better way to help promote one another? We'll make you (well, your essence) into a bar of soap that is beautiful and (hopefully) popular, put it in our shop which gets over 300 hits a day on average which gives your soap, and your shop some free exposure, and in exchange, you get to tell everyone you've been immortalized in soap!
So here's how this is going to work.
You leave us a comment here, telling us why you should be our next Etsy inspiration. What do you do that inspires people? What are you known for? Also give us an idea of what you think your soap would be like... Colors, shape, scent... layers or blended? or maybe something totally different. Get creative, because the best 5 answers will be chosen to be our next set of Etsy Inspirations!
We'll pick the 5 on Wednesday night at 9pm and unveil them next week on Thursday.
And remember have fun with this! Its all about being creative!
