Promo Exchange

Promotion is good for business, especially for new communities, reviving communities or just searching for new members. :) So if you'd like your community promoted at alias_contest in exchange for a promotion at your community/communities please read under the cut.
My other communities: set_challenge (here), naomi_challenge (here) and garnerlims (here) also have posts of the same topic. (If you want to be promoted in all 4 of my communities please let me know in the one post. Saves you filling out individual forms for the same thing)

WHAT IS PROMO EXCHANGE?
The name is pretty self explanatory. Simple answer. I promoted your community/communities in a post here at alias_contest, you promote mine in your community/communities. It doesn't have to be an individual post, as mine won't be, just a mid-week reminder post or something.(Example: their promo /my promo)

WHEN DO YOU MAKE PROMOTIONAL POSTS?
Promo posts will be made during the mid-week reminder, every Wednesday and only a few at a time. (in order of application.)Just forewarning you incase you think I'm full of shit because I haven't promoted you yet. However, in saying that if I get a flood of promos at once I may decide to make an individual post.

WHAT COMMUNITIES WILL YOU PROMOTE HERE?
Anything icon related. I'd prefer it to be icon challenges based but I'll also promote communities/personal journals that feature iconing equipment. (Example: textures, brushes, screencaps etc) I am also willing to promote personal icon journals or communities as long as there's a return promo in one of your posts. I will not however post anything that isn't icon related. Only what I've listed above. If you're not sure whether your community fits into these categories please ask and I'll give you an answer.

DOES THE PROMOTION HAVE TO BE IN A POST?
Yes. This isn't an affiliates list, it's a promotion. (adding it to an affiliates list doesn't count as it being in a post. Please refer to the above examples) If you only want to be added to the affiliates list please refer to this post.

DO I HAVE TO BE A MEMBER OF THIS COMMUNITY TO GET PROMOTED?
No. It's just a promotion exchange. You don't have to be a member to get promoted. The only requirement is that you promote back.

CAN I BE ADDED TO THE AFFILIATES LIST ALSO?
Absolutely. There's a section in the form that asks whether you'd like to be added as an affiliate also.

I ONLY WANT YOU TO PROMOTE ONE COMMUNITY. DOES THAT MEAN I HAVE TO PROMOTE ALL YOURS?
I'd be very grateful if you did but no. In the interests of being fair you can choose which ones you'd like to promote. For example: You submit two communities/journals then you can just promote two of mine if you don't want to promote them all.

WILL YOU PROMOTE ALL MINE IF I OWN MORE COMMUNITIES?
Sure. :) I don't mind how many you promote.

I WANT TO PROMOTE A COMMUNITY BUT IT ISN'T MINE. CAN I?
If you have permission from the owner of the community who is willing to promote my communities in return then I don't see a problem with that.

CAN YOU PLEASE GIVE ME A DESCRIPTION OF YOUR COMMUNITIES?
I'll try. lol :D I'm terrible at this.
garnerlims - A LIMS community dedicated to actress, Jennifer Garner.

naomi_challenge - Half stillness/half LIMS community for Actress, Naomi Watts. You can participate in one, the other or both.

set_challenge - An icon challenge community that focuses on weekly challenges of sets instead of individual icons.

* Please note that if you choose to say who it's modded by, like here, please give recognition to myalias_isjulia, owner and mod. I'm just co-mod at sydney_stills. Thank you. :)

There are two different forms. One for communities, one for journals. Please make sure you pick the appropriate one. I know it's annoying and I'm sorry but please fill out an individual form for each one you submit.

THE FORM: - COMMUNITY(Please make sure you use this form and fill out all the sections)


THE FORM: - JOURNAL(Please make sure you use this form and fill out all the sections)



Please note: If you're community/journal locked please make an exception for the promo post. I don't want to have to join the community just to see whether you've promoted the community or not. Thank you!

If I've missed something or you have any further questions please don't hesitate to ask.:)
