How to Get Featured on The Downtown Boutique

Hi there! Maybe you've heard of The Downtown Boutique, and maybe you haven't. The Downtown Boutique is a blog that I created in order to help promote crafters and artists, by showcasing their handmade products, and letting others know a little about them.

We began The Downtown Boutique on January 21, 2008, and have since had almost 5000 hits from over 40 different countries across the globe. We averaging about 100-140 hits a day right now.

We have two different features that we post about on a regular basis:

Tots on Tuesdays--featuring handmade items especially for kids
Friday Features--featuring handmade products and gifts for all ages.

If you're interested in being featured, we only ask a few things of you: We ask that you would be willing to do a giveaway. The retail value for the Tots on Tuesdays giveaways must be at least $10. The retail value of the Friday Features giveaways must be at least $15. The reason for the difference in price, is because we are doing a full interview feature on the Friday Features. The Tots on Tuesdays features is not a full interview, so we ask a little less of you. Giveaways run for one week. We also ask that you be willing to ship overseas, as we have a LOT of overseas visitors who frequent our blog on a regular basis.

Sound like something you'd like to do? We'd love to get you on the calendar. Please know that we choose our featured artists and crafters very carefully, based on quality of item, quality of photos we use, and what we think our readers will be interested in. We will not accept anything that is not family friendly. No vulgar, obscene or inappropriate material please.

Drop us a line, and we'll get you on the calendar!
Don't forget, you can advertise with us too!

Have a great day!
