WIST Goodie Basket Giveaway!

What is going on? : It’s WIST Goodie Basket Give-a-Way time again!

Why? We are hoping a goodie basket give-a-way will really push some serious Summertime sales in our direction! This is an AMAZING promotional opportunity!

How can I participate? Please sign up to participate by sending ElementsbyDawn a convo. The deadline to sign up is Sunday, July 6th. Keep in mind that buyers are both male AND female! Don't hesitate to send unisex or male-oriented items along for the baskets. The deadline to get your item donations to ElementsbyDawn is Thursday, July 17th. Please include a few business cards with each item you send as well as an approximate retail value of the item(s). We'll generate some extra buzz that way!

When does the contest start? All purchases made from participating WIST members beginning on Saturday June 28th at 12:01am CST through midnight CST July 31 are eligible.

What is the deadline for entries? Midnight CST, July 31, 2008.

Who is eligible? Buyers/entrants must be 18 years old as of the deadline to enter, or have reached the age of majority in the country in which you reside, on or before the Contest Deadline. You must also have an Etsy.com account, (buyer and/or seller).

How do buyers enter? Entry is automatic for buyers when he/she makes a purchase from any of the participating WIST Etsy shops.

What happens next? For each item purchased from a participating WIST member shops, the buyer will receive one entry. (IE: buy 2 items, get 2 entries).

Can someone enter without making a purchase? Those entrants who have decided not to purchase may enter once by sending ElementsbyDawn a conversation with the following information:
Your Etsy Username or Shop ID #
Your Last and First Names
Your Full Mailing Address

Thusly, no purchase is necessary to enter for the chance to win! (However, the form must be filled out completely, or the entry will be disqualified).

Entrants who buy items may also use this form for an additional chance to win. (However, the form must be filled out completely, or the entry will be disqualified).

What are the odds? The odds of being selected depend upon the total number of eligible entries received.

How will I know who won? Starting at noon Saturday, August 1st, attempts will be made to contact the winner. If an eligible entrant cannot be contacted within the allotted time of 10 days via the conversation feature addressed to the User ID listed on the entry, he/she is no longer eligible to win and another entrant will be selected and the same process will be repeated, until the WIST Goodie Basket Giveaway prize has been awarded. Goodie Basket will be mailed within one week of confirming a winner. WIST members aren't eligible to enter, (sorry!).

How can I let shoppers know I am a participating WIST member? Shops that send an item(s) to ElementsbyDawn for the basket should put the following text in their shop announcement:

When you make a purchase from this participating WIST member you will be automatically entered to win the WIST Goodie Basket Giveaway! ( http://wist-etsy.blogspot.com/2008/06/wist-goodie-basket-giveaway.html )

I will also include a list of participating members in our blog.

In addition, you can use this tag with your items: moogift!
