Thank you so much for interest in our next Postable Pop-Up which takes place on Saturday 1st August from 10am, until Sunday 2nd August 10pm. If you've not yet signed up to get access to the templates and join in, you can do so here.
If you have already signed up, by now you will have received the templates via an e-mail, ready for you to edit in Canva. So what next? You may be looking for some inspiration, so I’ve put together a brief checklist for you and also some popular FAQs to help you on your way, so here goes...
1. Setup a Stall From Home or Studio
Setup a stall safely at home to showcase your products; share pictures, stories, go live, whatever feels most natural for you! There are no real rules on this, it is for you to interpret however you wish. There are some amazing examples of previous setups over on our Instagram account from the last event in May 2020. You can visit and follow here.
2. Use Our Social Media Templates
We have provided you with access to our pre-designed templates, for you to drag and drop in your product images, your logo, your prices, etc to personalise these for your brand. You can use these should you wish, alongside posts without using them, that's up to you. Again there is no pressure to use these, however they will make it simple for you to get involved and produce content with a consistent look and feel, to get involved with the #POSTABLEPOPUP campaign. A brief video of how to use the templates has also been provided. Canva is a free tool to use and also have many easy 'how to' videos to use...it's a fantastic tool to utilise.
3. Share on Your Instagram Grid + Stories
Over the weekend, share your posts on your Instagram grid and stories. Why not try a live video? Or a pre-recorded upload to IGTV? Be sure to tag @postablepopup in your posts and use #POSTABLEPOPUP so your posts can be found via the community hashtag. Each day we'll post our favourite 10 posts on our grid too! If you have a newsletter list, why not send an e-mail out on Saturday morning to alert your customers about the event and what you're doing to showcase your work?
4. Print Our Sign #postablepopup
Print out our sign to use alongside your stall, or to take a picture of yourself holding it, be creative! This has been shared with you, at the same time the templates were shared.
5. Support Other Small Businesses Involved
In the true spirit of collaboration, have a look at the hashtag and find other small business owners getting involved. It would be great if you could share their stalls too. Why not promote yourself on day 1 on the Saturday, then on day 2 on the Sunday, look to share your favourite 5 makers that you have found via #POSTABLEPOPUP This will create a positive sharing loop and hopefully you'll be shared by others too!
6. Join In The August Instagram Challenge
Now that you've embarked on the #POSTABLEPOPUP journey and made the effort to setup shop for the weekend and engage with this fabulous community...why not continue the posting for the rest of the month? We have created a month long challenge, with 10 prompts, seeing you post every 3 days. This will keep the momentum for both you personally and for the hashtag, in a bid to attract further attention to your brand throughout the month. Go onnnnn....hope you can join in!
