MaineCreates.com Community Artist Program
This is a member-only marketing initiative that rewards our members for promoting MaineCreates.com to other artisans and crafters in Maine. Members in return for promoting, receive advertising space on the home page, the most valuable and most heavily trafficked web page at MaineCreates.com
How it Works?
We provide our members with a unique “Coupon Code” that entitles them to distribute the coupon code to new potential members. New members can receive a discount off the annual membership if they have one of our members coupon codes.
*Tell artisans and crafters about MaineCreates.com at shows, craft fairs, in their local community and through their professional network.
*Promote MaineCreates.com to others via email and other social networks to help build the online community.
*Teach others how to use the website by inviting them to their home, studio or shop to show others how to create/edit the creative profile web page and how to list a product for sale online at MaineCreates.com.
