Well heyyyy there makers, it has been a hot minute since the OML blog has gotten the love it deserves! As a kickoff to breathing that good blog life back into our space, we're coming back strong with a very special yarnie guest.
Lion Brand Yarn is a top OML 2019 event sponsor and we're thrilled to have thee LBY social media guru Abby here with us to chat a bit about something we're all keen on - and that's how makers like us can work with Lion Brand.
We're totally thanking Abby in advance for this exactly-how-to-collaborate blog post (it's gold) and so without further adieu, here's Abby of Lion Brand Yarn:
It’s so nice to virtually meet you all, I’m Abby and I am the Social Media Manager for Lion Brand Yarn - all of those posts you see on our Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram? I’m the one behind those! I’m very much looking forward to those who will be attending OML in Calgary this July! In the meantime, I’m so excited to be able to talk to you all about how you can work with us at Lion Brand.
1) Affiliate Marketing Program
There are many different ways that designers/influencers can work with us, one of the easiest and fastest ways is to join our affiliate marketing program through Share A Sale. With our program, you can earn a 10% commission from purchases that were made through your unique link. I would highly suggest signing up for this! It’s very easy to apply – about twice a week I go into the program and approve new affiliates! You can sign up by clicking here.
2) Tag us in your pictures!
When you do this, you have the chance to not only be featured on our Instagram, but also to be featured in different marketing materials that we create. Your image could be seen by millions of people! We love sharing your amazing creations with the world to see. Make sure to tag us in the picture as well as use the hashtags #lionbrand and #lionbrandyarn.
3) Pitch Your Designs
Another way you can work with us is to send us project ideas for us to provide yarn support for. We will only provide yarn support for one project at a time. We get far more yarn support requests than we can fulfill, so if it doesn’t happen right away, don’t get discouraged!
Of course, we love to work with you on your own vision within reason. If you have an idea, send it our way and we will see how we can help you!
For more info, please email me, or Mark McCowan on the LBY team.
Mark and I are so excited to meet many of you in July!
Until then, keep on crafting!
Abby, Social Media Manager
Lion Brand Yarn
