Ad Space Giveaway

{via weheartit}

A giveaway idea came to me a few weeks ago and, although a little unconventional, should prove to be quite fun!

I've decided to give away one Corporate Sponsor ad space on Haute Whimsy, good for three months (that's a $300 prize!). Along with the ad space, the winner will also receive Twitter attention (and if applicable, Etsy attention as well).

*The differences between Corporate Sponsor ads and Artist Sponsor ads are the size, placement and price. Please feel free to email me if you're interested in placing an Artist Sponsor ad.

For a chance at winning a coveted ad space for yourself, you must leave a comment below telling me a little about what your ad would be for- blog, clothing store, art site, Etsy shop, etc. While the winner will be chosen by a random number generator, I would love to learn more about everyone who enters :)

For even more entries, you may:
  • Follow Haute Whimsy
  • "Like" Haute Whimsy on Facebook
  • Follow Haute Whimsy on Twitter
  • Suggest the Haute Whimsy Facebook Fan Page to friends (leave a comment here)
  • Post about this giveaway on Facebook (leave a link of proof- once daily)
  • Tweet about this giveaway (leave a link of proof- once daily)
  • Blog about this giveaway (leave a link of proof- once only)
A winner will be chosen 3/30, and the ad will run from April to June. Good luck to all!

*Congratulations to Lana from Simple Joys Paperie!

  1. I love this idea! So fun. And think of all the great artists and businesses etc. you'll read about :)

    As for myself, I have a business designing and selling "paper lovelies" as I call them. -Stationery, stickers, invitations, greeting cards, announcements etc. I have an Etsy shop as well as a .com shop. I draw all of my own designs so each can be completely customized to suit my customer's taste.

    Now if you'll excuse me, I will be tweeting and facebook commenting about your exciting giveaway!

    p.s.
    I already follow on Twitter :)

  7. I would love to be able to help my mom out and advertise her vintage clothing shop with the ad space. She's going to Europe during the summer and needs a little extra spending money :)

  8. My business is actually FOR promotion. I'm a freelance publicist who works with authors and small businesses (especially people that have etsy shops and that type of thing). If that works, I'd love to be entered.

  13. Well, personally, I'd like to advertise my blog, BackseatWriter.com, in your amazing ad space, which is slightly artsy, totally edgy, but definitely appealing. Even though my site has nothing to do with Etsy or creating stuff, writing is a craft and I like artsy people.

The Delende art site is about to get it's first real start since I have started doing sculptural pottery. I hope to have mey first ceramic pieces put up there by the end of this weekend. It has been slow getting going but am excited that it will be up and running!

  20. This is a great idea! I am an illustrator and watercolorist. I would be delighted and honored to be able to feature an ad here with you on Haute Whimsey. I have an Etsy shop, a blog that features creative designs, fashion and rich sentiments and my company website. It is a treat to be considered. You do great work and I look forward to following Haute Whimsey!!

  21. wow, I've never advertised our shop, this would be fantastic!

    I would use our "weenie in a bikini" magnet as the ad copy for our Etsy shop - Laughing Fridge Art Magnets. We make whimsical, fun, funky magnets and think everyone's fridge (or file cabinet) needs a little fun!

  28. I have two Etsy shops;

    http://Giftbearer.etsy.com which sells Contemporary Tribal style jewelry and another for supplies; http://GiftbearerSupply.etsy.com

    I have a dog, Carmella (who you can see in my avatar here and on Facebook and in my Etsy jewelry shop) that I got from a local shelter who had to be treated for distemper with a new cure that at the time was still experimental. It saved her life and killed the virus but I am still paying off her medical expenses 3 years later and she was left with some after-effects. She also has a torn carpal ligament that will need a stem cell transplant as soon as I can afford it financially. A 3-month ad like this would probably help tremendously if your blog gets a good response from people who buy on Etsy.

    Thanks,

    Sincerely,

    Pippit
