We have the best community in the whole wide world right here at Murphy's. Some of you guys have been following me for years and some of you are just now part of what we are doing.
The t-shirt campaign we did went so well that we want to do another one. Except that this time we want to try something new.
It will not be a surprise to many of you that I have a very limited skillset. I'm relatively good at writing you guys emails that can sometimes make you giggle and make you remember to come and shop at my store. And I'm decent at selling books.
You might not know this though... the last job I had before I dropped out of grad school to work on my business was washing windows.
And I got fired for being VERY bad at it.
So... what are the chances that I will be able to design a bunch of really cool shirts you guys would love?
Instead, why not make it a contest?
So, here's what we are going to do. From now until March 8th at midnight we are accepting designs for two different categories of merchandise.
T-shirts and bumper stickers.
Then the community as a whole will choose the winners.
The winners get $100 in cash (or $200 in store credit) along with 10% of the sales of winning products during the launch campaign.
Here is what we need you to do. If you are interested in being part of the design contest you can join the Merch Mastermind here. It is totally free and is a community forum just for you guys.
If you just want to jump in and see what everyone else is doing and give ideas you can join too.
The big rule is be nice :)
If you have any questions.... join the community and ask them there!
The First One is on Us :)
