A letter of updates

Good morning everyone,

I just wanted to take a second to thank you all for your patience and understanding as I try to catch up on event listings from my time off.  We are getting so many listings on DFW Craft Shows and I am very excited to watch our community grow and continue to support local artists and crafters!  Here are just a few updates to let you know what's going on behind the scenes...

Event Submissions Online
Because of the sheer volume of submissions, I will no longer be able to guarantee the listing of event information submitted via email.  If you would like to get your event listed on the site in a timely manner, please submit it online and complete all the requested information.  These events will be posted in the order they are received as quickly as I can get to them. Please do not submit your show information more than once.  If you are unsure if your submission went through, feel free to ask.  Note:  Please continue to email in event information for the current weekend guide, so I can get them listed asap.

Listing Upgrades
DFW Craft Shows now offers Listing Upgrades, in addition to ad space, for all your promotion and marketing needs. If you need your event listed immediately, please consider purchasing one of these upgrades to help expedite the process.  (If you have already submitted your event, but wish to upgrade your listing, you do not need to resubmit your show information.)  All profit from both Listing Upgrades and Ad Sense go directly back into supporting, maintaining, and promoting DFW Craft Shows.

Searching
I have been researching good search options for DFW Craft Shows for quite sometime.  Many of them are not as comprehensive as I would like, including the one we have been using for the last several months.  So, DFW Craft Shows is currently testing out a new search box option.  Let me know if you love it, hate it, or have any suggestions!  I am hoping to make it even easier for everyone to search and sort through the many listings we are receiving.

Giveaways
You've seen them on the site every other week, and they will keep coming as long as you guys are enjoying them.  Let me know if there is anything I can do to improve your experience with these.  DFW Craft Shows is still accepting sponsors for our regular giveaways, but we are also opening the doors for Christmas Giveaway submissions.  Usually, the week or so before Christmas, we start doing a giveaway every day.  If you'd like to participate in one of these giveaways, please contact me with the required information and the subject line "Christmas Giveaways."

Lastly, I want to take a moment to thank everyone for your support of DFW Craft Shows.  Your support and kindness has been such a comfort these last few months.  I truly appreciate all your help in submitting events and helping to spread the word about these great local events.

Shop. Sell. Local.
