How I list my supplies + Huge Giveaway

Hi everyone and welcome to a different kind of post than I normally do! Today I am not sharing a card or an art journal.  One of the most common questions I get is “where can I find this product” and “what’s the name of that supply”.  So today, I am going to show you where and how I list my supplies and I have a HUGE giveaway for one of you!

I always list the supplies I use on my projects at the bottom of my posts by displaying a neat gallery of product images that when you click on them they take you directly to the online shops where I got the supplies. And I also have a text linked list below my videos on YouTube.

Personal story:

Since I begun sharing videos I knew I needed to share the products to help my readers find what I used. But listing supplies with text was as if they weren’t there. I was getting the questions “where did you find that?” … so I had to add links but that was taking ages!!! Too busy to do that for every product (bother with HTML, grabbing URLs, hoping from site to site etc). And then the idea came! What if there was a tool that I could just drag and drop products from the shops/manufacturers I love and create my supply list in seconds? Well, that’s when having a computer genius husband comes in handy. And that’s how about the Inlinkz Project Manager was born. Yep! Inlinkz.com is a family business. Since then many great designers are using it to list their products on their blog including Tim Holtz, Kristina Werner, Jennifer McGuire and many more.

Most of you have already used another tool of Inlinkz, the Link-up tool… to take part in card/scrapbook challenges. But that’s another story I may share another day 😉

 

Need to say more? Just watch the video below and learn how easy it is to link your supplies and help your readers find what they are looking for.

    I think that is a great program and stores should be paying you to have bloggers use it and bloggers should also be paying you to use it. Bloggers are more likely to post links to store product and there for they will sell more product. I will give it a whirl when I get home but first I need to make something that is good enough to post….lol
    Thank you and SSS for a chance to win some goodies 😉

Inlinz is a totally cool tool but knowing that it is you and your DH’s business just makes it all the cooler!I use it all the time on other people’s blogs but have never personally used it on my blog…I thought it was difficult to do and costly! I am SO giving this a go!

    Thank you for this wonderful system! I do not have a blog, and am not at all “techie”, but I am a scrapbooker and a card maker and read many (too many) blogs. Jennifer McGuire’s blog has been one of my favorites for a very long time, and she has made it so easy to shop by using your system. I love that I can see a product that she uses, and just click to be taken to the item at the store!!! On line store shopping is no longer something I dread, but rather a pleasure (until I realize how much I have put in my cart:)) Jennifer was the first I noticed using this system, but I am so happy to see that many others are now using it as well. I know that since I do not have a blog, I shouldn’t be posting on this entry, but I wanted you to know what a brilliant idea I think your Inlinkz system is from a consumers point of view.:)

    Thank you so much, Vicky, for allowing us to try out this amazing tool! I’ll admit I was a little afraid of it before, but it does give such a professional appearance to your blog! Thank you! I’m afraid to tell you that I’ve posted the same card twice on your blog today – feel free to remove the first one, entry #34, as it will lead to nowhere. Sorry……

    Hi. Looks like a great service but I couldn’t find ANY of my supplies on it! I have lots of Stampin’ Up stuff, I use a silhouette sd cutting machine and Heidi Swapp Hello Today paper (from Michael’s) but none of it was there. Guess I can’t enter. 🙁

  35. Wow 🙂 so many amazing posts 🙂 even though there’s still 2 days left for works to be added to the competition theirs already a bunch of beautiful cards/ journal pages/ everything. They are all so well made 🙂
    also (I think) there’s a bunch of people posting more than one project (I think) 😛 They are still all so beautiful though.
    Also such a creative way to spread the word about InLinkz, I had honestly never heard of it before but am happily using it now 😀

    Hi Vicky, on March 10, I added one entry… then I finished a new one yesterday, I uploaded the new one (entry #75) and deleted previous one (I guess entry #57), so now the list move up one entry number, will this cause any trouble at your side? Apology in advance.
