Applications for events in 2021

Each Awesome Evening Event runs from 7pm to 10pm UK time.

Each Fabulous Day Event runs from 10am to 10pm UK time.

Each Sensational Weekend Event runs from 10am Saturday to 10pm Sunday UK time.

Anyone worldwide can apply as long as they can guarantee being present during the event.

Businesses need one of the following to apply –

  • Facebook business page / group.
  • Own website.
  • Instagram business page.
  • Etsy Shop
  • Possibly other marketplace shops – see “how this will work” for details. Is your shop compatible? 

You can only apply to an event with 1 of these for 1 business. You cannot add all links to 1 application. Please decide your stall before applying.

You can apply for an event with different businesses. But more than 1 business application will incur more than 1 fee. If you apply with 2 businesses on the same event then the fee will be doubled. (Also – are you sure you want to use 2 on the same event? You can. You’ll just be very busy.)

Please read all of the information below BEFORE applying for the events at the bottom of the page. (I know it’s a lot but you have only to read it once!)
 
To apply you must not be taking part in any other market night or online event, on the day of my event, or 5 days before my event. This way you can concentrate on getting more visitors to the event you have paid for to help your interaction and potential sales.
Awesome Evenings – A stall slot is £10 per person which covers this awesome evening event and grand prize donation. The £10 is non-refundable even if you have to drop out. £3 will be taken from the stall slot cost and used to create Grand Prize funds. 
 
Fabulous Days – A stall slot is £15 per person which covers this awesome evening event and grand prize donation. The £20 is non-refundable even if you have to drop out. £5 will be taken from the stall slot cost and used to create Grand Prize funds. 
 
Sensational Weekends – A stall slot is £35 per person which covers this awesome evening event and grand prize donation. The £10 is non-refundable even if you have to drop out. £8 will be taken from the stall slot cost and used to create Grand Prize funds. 
 
The prize winner(s) can choose to use money at any one of the stalls that were involved in the event and money is sent electronically via PayPal to the chosen stall.

How this will work.

Copyright June 2020 © 
You will be called stalls for the duration of the event because that is how I want the event to appear – just like a physical event with you available to talk to.
  1. You will have an introduction on the KLE Facebook page, instagram (new) and website.
  2. The event will appear on Facebook and Instagram (new) and website and will have your page or website or social media linked.
  3. I will have 1 of your products on the KLE instagram.
  4. I will have at least 1 of your products in the KLE Website Shop which is uploaded before the event and stays on the website for 1 month after the event.
  5. Stalls using Facebook can have games if they wish and these will be linked to the event. If your website/social media has the capability of holding games/competitions then these can be linked to the event too.
  6. I will hold a Grand Prize(s) to entice visitors to the event. (I use your donations and prizes sent to me)
All stalls –
  • MUST be available online to engage with visitors for the majority of the event as well as being able to carry out all of the preparation work on the lead up to the event as and when required, sticking to the deadlines to ensure you get the best from the event. This is particularly crucial in the final week before the event.
  • Can sell as many items as you like during the event – there is no limit and you don’t have to make anything exclusive for the event. If it sells well then continue to sell it afterwards! Anything in your event titled album / collection / highlight / feature might be sold before the event due to advertising before the event night.
  • WILL get comments, other interaction and possibly messages / orders. You need to be around to answer these, and replying to comments will help your reach and engagement so that you get more visitors!
  • NEED to be available for the Online Personal Shopper Experience. Watch out for this post so you can reply to comments if I haven’t already got there! I may be posting in the secret group to ask you questions too.
  • You will need to schedule posts for during the event so that your stall is seen in newsfeeds and to give people visiting your page things to interact with. One of these posts will be a post that you MUST have scheduled for the start of the event.
  • If you decide to hold a competition on your stall then you must be able to donate a prize/voucher for your competition. The competition on your stall is not run or drawn by KL Online Shopping Events. You will draw the winner and I will announce it at the end of the event along with all competition winners. You will create any graphics for your own game (you can ask for ideas for this from myself and team if it is not something you are confident with. We can also create your graphics for you for a small additional fee – please contact us for details). Our events are all about fun as well as brand awareness and the competitions help with this aspect.
  • You MUST have prices on your products photos or in the description of products in your album/collection etc. People visiting want to see products with prices straight away, no messing about or having to ask you how much it costs. This can deter customers. Each product MUST have a title (for the website) and description.
  • You will be given access to the FREE training group on Facebook (from start of prep to last day of event month.)
I commit to the events 100% and offer a tailor made experience for everyone taking part which involves 150 hours of work and preparation from myself. All I ask is that all stall holders only apply if they are willing to take part in all aspects of the event process (including adhering to deadlines so that I can ensure that all preparation is ready on time). In the unlikely event that a stall has to withdraw from the process I may replace with another stall from the application list and the non refundable deposit will be used towards time and costs incurred to redo all of the promotional materials for the event. I appreciate your support on this xx
What the host does –
 
Behind the scenes: Organise an application process for each event. Go through each applicant. Message those that are successful. · Create the event on Facebook. instagram and the website. · Create the secret ‘groups’ that I use for all communication before/during and after the event with all the businesses taking part. Supporting all businesses involved. · Finalise the routes (if applicable)· Plan the programme for the event and write all posts for the entire event · Design/create all graphics for the event, including marketing, logos, pre-event material. · Design/create marketing videos for the event. · Advertise the event continuously in community pages and groups on Facebook and other social media, on the run up to the event. · Sort out all games/competition details – and allocate to the businesses involved.
 
During the event:
Host the event on Facebook, instagram and website. · Support all businesses involved. Share posts on social media platforms (I ask ER’s to do this too). Answer Online Personal Shopper queries. Create the prize winner graphic. Answer comments.
 
For these events I am the Event Coordinator which involves being Media Researcher, Multimedia Designer, Animator, Games Coordinator, Marketing Manager and Host/Compere.
How I choose the stalls –
 
All businesses are welcome (including applicants who are reps from the same company).
****No-one is chosen on a first come first served basis.****
I have a calendar schedule that I stick to in terms of applying and then selecting applicants. After the closing date I go through each page that applied and make comments on posts, photos, and products. I look at how well each page engages with their customers, if they post regularly, if they have products that match what I asked for and if the photos are of a good standard. I also look at products to ensure that I don’t have cross overs. I then create a shortlist from this information. Every applicant is looked at. This is why I ask people to apply with a comment on why they would like to join and what they have to offer. It is also why I have a closing date. You can apply to join any of the events at any time you like – as long as it’s before the closing date. I have this system in place to keep the selection process as fair as possible for everyone involved, and my decision is final. If you are not selected for one event it does not mean you will not be selected for future events. The selection process is one of the most challenging aspects of my business as there are so many amazing applicants to choose from. I contact each stall selected and invite them to join a secret planning group specifically for that event. I also post in the application group after the applicants have agreed to be part of the event to inform everyone that the successful applicants have been chosen and so those who have not been successful will be aware, but welcome to apply for future events. If you have any questions about the event process please do get in touch. Kelly 🙂
