List Your Sale!

yes, we know it's long, but we have quite a
bit to say, and also, most of the
questions that are emailed to us are actually answered right here, too!
Dear Mom2Mom Sale Organizer:
Thank you for all of your support and confidence in
us here at Mom2MomList.com. As many of you know, the community of moms
who use our website regularly has grown tremendously over the last year,
exceeding everyone’s expectations. Due to the overwhelming growth of
our site, and the increase in the number of sales held each season, we
have no choice but to start charging a small fee for sale listings. This
will help to cover our growing expenses and the large amount of time
that is needed to maintain this service. Our website is now averaging
over 300,000 page views each month.
We personally cover many expenses
out of our own pockets to support your sales with advertising during the season. We can
no longer afford to absorb these costs. For
the last several years, we have faithfully supported your sales and now we are
asking that you understand our position on this matter. Thank you to the
sales who have made donations to help support this service!
minimum fee for listing your sale will be only $23
a PDF file with the "Pink List" 2 sided. We
tried to come up with a reasonable and fair amount that would not
hurt the causes being supported by the sales. Most of the
organizers that we have discussed this with have agreed that this
amount is more than fair. This is the only option that we will
have for the "Pink List".
As always, you can
email us with any questions with
a daytime and nighttime phone number and we will return your
call; email us at email@example.com.
We always welcome your feedback and suggestions!
In order to list your sale on our website and on our
printed "Pink Lists", we must receive by mail
your "List My Sale" form and anything else required no later
than 1 month before the date of your sale. If we receive your form late,
your listing will still appear on our website and in our email
reminders, however it may be too late to add your sale to our printed
list. Your payment will not be reimbursed if this happens, as you will
still be getting a large amount of online advertising from us.
Please make sure that you send your check in with
your form.... This is the only way that your listing will get on our
site or on our Pink Lists. A $35 returned check fee will be charged if your check
bounces for any reason. Our bank charges us, so we have to pass on that
cost to you. Also, in the future, you will be required to pay by money
order or cash.
You may also order yard signs or a dedicated page on our
website to help you in conducting
Sometimes we receive feedback from shoppers and sellers
regarding specific sales. We will forward comments
to you as our time allows, and at our discretion. At the request of our
message board community, we have also created a "Sales
Sound-Off" message board, where everyone can publicly share their
likes and dislikes. We encourage all sale organizers to register for our
message boards and participate, especially on the "Sales
Sound-Off" board. You can post a message before your sale
introducing yourself, inviting everyone to your sale, sharing what
exactly you are raising funds for, etc. You should also come back in the
days following your sale to see what members have to say - whether it be
compliments or constructive criticism.
As always, you can email us at any time at firstname.lastname@example.org.
We always welcome your feedback and suggestions!
Due to the rapid growth of the
mom2mom resales, and our intention of remaining a local website, we have
decided to restrict our "southeastern Michigan" listing to the
following counties: Monroe, Lenawee, Wayne, Washtenaw, Livingston,
Oakland, Macomb, Genessee, Lapeer, Sanilac, St. Clair. Although we are not
interested in expanding outside this area, we would be very happy to see
this trend catching on with other websites targeting other local areas.
If your sale is not in one of these counties, consider starting your own
local site & list while helping to spread the benefits of mom2mom
resales into your area. We also have a new message board for "Out
Of Area Sales" that we welcome you to post a short
advertisement on. Thank you for your understanding!
We DO NOT advertise craft shows or vendor shows on our website or printed list.
Your sale MUST be at least 90% mom2mom tables to qualify for a listing.
That means only 1/10 of your table renters can be for vendors and/or
crafters (1 vendor table for every 10 resale renters). Your sale MUST
be held by an established organization for
consideration to be included. We will not list fundraisers for
individuals. Churches, schools, MOMs & MOPs clubs, daycares,
preschools. and charities are examples of acceptable organizations. Your
sale must have a minimum of 20 tables to be listed with us. We
may refuse a sale listing at any time, for any reason, at our
discretion. If you are having a garage/yard sale, rummage sale, flea
market, vendor fair, a private/personal fund-raiser, or any other type of event, feel free to post a
simple ad on our message boards, under the appropriate board (you must be a registered member to post).
Again, your sale must be a mom-to-mom resale event
at a public location to
be placed on our list, held by an established organization. We do not list sales that are being held at
private residences, or as fundraisers for individuals.
Again, we will be
happy to list your sale with one condition - that you have our
"Pink List" to distribute at your sale. We provide you
with ALOT of advertising... Our website is up YEAR-ROUND, so you
can list your sale as soon as you have a date picked out! We pass out
over 30,000 fliers each fall, and close to 50,000 during the spring sale
season! We remind all of our
email newsletter subscribers each week of the upcoming sales for that
weekend, and with a monthly email newsletter. You get all this just for simply
distributing our Pink List at your sale!
(Please Note: If
you submit your sale less than 1 month in advance, we cannot guarantee
your listing will be published on our printed flyers. However, because
even late listings will receive advertising through our site and email
newsletter, we still require the same obligation of distributing the
lists at your sale. Our lists are maintained on this website
year-round, so please make sure you get your sales submitted as early
as possible to avoid missing our printing deadlines.)
With so many sales going on these days, there is
just no way that we will be able to get to every sale. We have tried to
keep this very reasonable for all involved. In return for advertising
your sales on our site & our printed list, all we ask for is your cooperation in distributing the list.
Our sponsors help to cover our printing costs by placing
paid ads on the back of the lists. We want to make sure we
get their ads into as many hands as possible, while providing this
community service to all resale shoppers & sale organizers. I'm sure
you can imagine how the expenses can add up when we are distributing
over 100,000+ fliers annually - not to mention the number of hours
that we put into compiling the lists, updating the website, and
distributing fliers to advertise for you.
Please visit Organizers Tools
& Tips section on our website for information on our message board for organizers only,
getting a website for your sale, or a great special price on fliers!

* Listing may take up to
10 days from the date of receipt to appear on our website.
** We must receive your listing 30 days prior to the sale date
to guarantee that it
will appear on the printed Pink Lists before your sale date.
2013 Changes: Sales will no longer be divided into 2 sale seasons (spring/summer and fall/winter). We will instead have one ongoing list for the entire year. Also, because we are working with a limited amount of space to list your information, and rental pricing seems to be getting more complicated and detailed, we will no longer be listing the pricing information. Instead, we will list the contact information and/or links to your flyers or contracts (which you can email to us to add to your listing, or have them located elsewhere on the internet for us to link to.) Anyone interested in renting will have to contact you to get detailed information. We recommend using an email address, and having a standard email response set up to send out to everyone who inquires, including all of your rental options and pricing, as well as restrictions.
