May Flowers that could last forever

For this month's giveaway I've decided to offer something special: coupon codes to save on new ArtFire PRO subscriptions. You can enter either by clicking like on the giveaway post on my fan page, or commenting "PRO code" below. Up to two entries per person (one for like, one for comment). See end of this post for a cute contest.

What are those PRO codes?

ArtFire has increased the monthly subscription to $15.95, but each PRO member that was locked in at the lower rates, has received 5 coupon codes that can be given out to family and friends so they too can lock in at $12, as long as they use the coupon before June 1st. Well, that's less than a month away, so since I have 3 codes available (2 already have dibs on them), these are the prizes for this month's giveaway. :) That's $47.40 savings a year BTW.

What can you do with 12 dollars ($3/week)? Well, for starters if you have an Etsy shop, you could pay for one month PRO and import all your items so you don't have to relist them on ArtFire. Change the titles around a bit and the first paragraph in your descriptions, and you've got a full shop ready to go in less than a day.

As a PRO, you also get an ArtFire Kiosk which makes it possible to buy straight from your fan page.

RapidCart can be added to any website or blog, so people can buy straight from there as well. $12 is an all inclusive rate covering listing fees, FVF, everything. If you have many listings and sell enough to balance out the $12 a month, ArtFire PRO is definitely something to consider for putting your eggs in more than one basket.

Each PRO code will come with an mv bookmark and magnet. The drawing will be Friday May 7th at 9PM EDT, using

The person promoting the most will receive a gift certificate for a free pair of earrings :) All promoters have my heartfelt THANKS! ♥ Freedom to promote anything dear to me, including the giveaway,, or undiscovered studios (other than yours) from the 0-sales list. Just let me know either on my fan page, or in the comments below this post :) Entries will be counted every night and tallied Friday May 7th at 9PM EDT.

Have fun and good luck!

  5. Very nice, Mv! Way to put those things to good use! =)

  6. I am in dire need of a Pro Code. I want to upgrade so that I can use the Facebook kiosk, and hopefully make a sale on Artfire. I would love to see my ebusiness take off! By the way, my studio name is hope45942.

  7. YAY Lindsay! I was trying to figure out how to contact you. You've WON! I am not sure what happened with facebook, it hasn't sent out my updates about the giveaway winners. It's published them, but it seems it hasn't added them to the newsfeed. Silly FFB. Glad you've contacted me, sent you the code :) (Email me your addie for the bookmark and magnet).

  8. I just emailed you my address. I hope you got it. Let me know if you didn't. :)
