We will be hosting this popular event for our Community on Saturday, November 26, 2016 aka Small Business Saturday.

For those who may not be aware, Small Business Saturday is a day in the United States where people are encouraged to do their holiday shopping with small, local businesses. It follows Black Friday, one of the biggest shopping days of the year.

You - our content Creators are definitely small businesses - with huge creative imaginations! We want to celebrate you and your creations with this event and invite all the Community members to go on a shopping spree on that day and beyond.

This is your opportunity (optional of course) to set up special rooms and boutiques to show of your products and be in the rooms to meet and greet with your customers.

How to Participate

--All Creators are welcome to participate in Small Business Saturday on IMVU

--Creators will put together individual public chat rooms that will show off their products, typically called a boutique or showroom. GA and AP catalogs are welcome!

--You can be present in your rooms to answer questions, gift items, etc. or you can hire models or take turns moderating your room with friends. It is up to you!

-- Partners/collaborators can also submit their showrooms

Promotion

We have planned promotions via multiple (and additional) channels.

--A forum post in general announcements section
--A forum post in our IMVU Hosted Events section which will also list the final lists of all showrooms/boutiques for the event
--Blue Bar
--A message (with email notification) to all users mid-month
--A special landing page announcing the event which will be linked from the Shop menu on our website
--Banner ads and webpage and shop page interstitials leading up to the event
--Client login interstitial and login gift both promoting the event on Saturday, November 26th
--Promotion via our social channels - Facebook, Instagram, Twitter

Additionally, we encourage those who participate to share the information via pulse/photo stream/feed too as we get closer to the date. We will be doing the same.

How to Organize Your Showroom

Some ideas:

--Use Flash mannequins and Flash shop display items to display your items
--Ask friends to model your clothing while walking down a runway in your room
--If you are a room creator, use a chat room portal (like this one by Tidy) to show off multiple rooms at once

**Feel free to post any tips or products that can help others with their showrooms in this thread.

It would be great if your room description includes the phrase "Small Business Saturday" too.

How to Submit Your Showroom

Submission begins today, November 1st, 2016 and ends on November 23rd, 2016.

Use this forum topic below to submit your showroom. There is no limit on how many showrooms you may send, but we will do our best to ensure that everyone has a fair chance of their showroom being seen on the list.

When submitting a room please include the following information.

Host(s) name
Room name and link
Whether it is GA or AP
Type of products showcased (clothing, rooms, furniture, accessories etc)

Members of IMVU staff with the help of our moderators will review all submissions for Small Business Saturday. Please put your best items in your rooms. Please make sure all products comply with our policies.

Feel free to post questions.

I would like to suggest that IMVU host a central room for this event and request that every participating creator donate their flash banner to be posted there.

I love the idea of this, I do have a query. I'm in Australia and therefore miss part of the day and the traffic due to me sleeping during the US morning to early afternoon. Do I look at hiring someone to be there during those hours? Would it be worth it? If so, what would be appropriate to reimburse for their services?
