Free Pumpkin Cheesecake Lip Balm in Out of the Box Sampler November Box

On Tuesday, in an effort to do some advertising, we decided to donate 100 free lip balms to the Out of the Box Sampler. It's great advertising for us and I've worked with Michelle in the past. She does a fantastic job getting out 100+ boxes of handmade samples each month and we have perfect timing to make the October 20th deadline to get into the November box.

This is our first time working with a deadline and making 100 lip balms all at once!

Wednesday: Daniel and I are becoming a good team in pouring the lip balm and we were very efficient! Sarah opened the printable label files, printed and prepared the labels and did all the trimming with very little oversight. 100 labels is a big job!

Thursday: Dan peeled labels, I applied them to the tubes, Sarah put on the shrink bands and she and I operated the heat guns.

Friday: Put together the sample baggies with the Pumpkin Cheesecake lip balm, lemon lollipop, business card and coupon. Put 101 sampler baggies into a flat rate box and took it to the post office! We did it!

Now I'm eager to see how if this coupon attracts any sales or additional newsletter subscribers. I love marketing!
