Introducing…the Astro Marketplace…

I’ve mentioned before that I have a big Jupiter year ahead of me – I also have a big Saturn year, but that’s an entirely different story.

Jupiter represents many things – expansion and exploration being just two. Jupiter is also associated with abundance, generosity, publication, promotion, higher learning, and broadcasting – which is why, in this Jupiter year, I’m introducing an astro marketplace… of sorts.

I’ve said before – and I’ll continue saying it – astrology is one of those subjects that you never stop learning, and, who knows, someone else could be saying what you need to hear in the way that you need to hear it at this particular time. The thing is, if you don’t know about them, you can’t hear it, right? That’s where the astro marketplace comes in.

What’s it about?

Each month I’ll tell you about astro workshops, conferences, webinars, and new book releases.

How will it work?

I’m still sorting out the details, but essentially, if you have an event or a publication that you want other people to know about, email me by the 1st of the month and I’ll include it in the Marketplace.

What’s in the Marketplace?

Each month there’ll be 2 sections:

  • Conferences, workshops or webinars – let’s just call them “events”
  • Books and New Releases

What do I need to promote your product?

For Conferences/ workshops:

  • Event title
  • Date
  • City/Country
  • A link for more information

For books:

  • Title
  • Author
  • Image (please keep it to no larger than 500kb)
  • A link for more information

Nothing else – no blurbs, words etc. Just the info and the link. If people are interested, they have what they need to find out more.

Are there any rules?

Yes. This is an astrology site, so the events, books etc you want promoted must also be about astrology. Anything that falls outside of these guidelines (which will probably be firmed up further as we progress) or anything that could be considered offensive or insensitive to others will not be included – nor will any discussion be entered into. Yes, I know that’s a tough attitude, but hey, this is also a Saturn year for me too and my priority is production not administration.

You can publicise the same event twice only (eg in the 2 months prior to the event), but books can only be included for mention once in a six month period.

Please do not send through links to sites that repackage or republish other people’s work.

How long will I run this for?

I don’t know. Hopefully indefinitely, but if it starts interfering with my ability to produce content, (ie if it becomes troublesome) I’ll cut back.

What’s in it for me?

One of my aims this year is to create (and sell) more product, and grow my list of subscribers. In offering this service to you, I’m hoping that it will also increase my own email subscriber list – and, therefore, widen the audience for my products and services too. Besides, over the years I’ve received so much support from others, it’s high time that I gave some back. It’s a karmic thing.

What if I don’t have products or events that I want to market, but I do consutations and teach…what about me?

Once a quarter I’ll open it up to consultations and teacher promotions. You’ll get advance notice via the newsletter to get your links in.

When will it start?

I have a big birthday coming up in March (think of a number and then forget it), so I’d like to get the first Marketplace out by the 15th of March. That means you’ll need to email me details of your event or book by 1st March.

Where can I email links etc:

Please email me at [email protected] ensuring that ‘Astro Marketplace’ is in the subject line of the email.
