While 2020 has put a damper on in-person gatherings, there is one thing that’s for sure: we all have become a pro at virtual get-togethers. And the big advantage of virtual events is that people from all over the United States can connect with each other no matter where they are. Baby and Sunshine just hosted their first ever virtual holiday event featuring amazing deals on their wonderful mom and baby products, awesome giveaways including items from their affiliate merchants and other great offers. If you missed it, don’t worry: you can still snag some of the deals and even participate in some of the giveaways. Here’s a recap of the successful Baby and Friends Holiday Event.
Most convenient event location: a Facebook group
The main event took place in a Facebook group on Saturday, November 14th; however, users were able to join the group beforehand and even participate in fun sweepstakes. One lucky winner won a cash prize a few days before the event simply by participating in a game. There was another amazing giveaway running before the event where the grand prize was an exclusive and high-quality diaper bag. The grand prize was one of Baby and Sunshine’s amazing Super Boxes valued at $124.99 filled with personalized premium items for mommy and baby. Some of the other giveaway prizes included an Ergonomic Baby Carries, organic footed onesie valued at $25, a Mama Bird shirt from Happy Momma Merch, sloth bummies from Adry’s Boutique, holiday PJs from Sandy’s Crafts, a coupon from Snap’N’Nap and many more. Over 120 people participated in the event and it was extremely convenient that everyone was able to comfortably participate from their phone or computer. You can still sign up and participate here.
Entertainment by a relatable host
Every successful event needs a great host! But how do you do that for a virtual Facebook event? No problem at all for the creative minds at Baby and Sunshine who thought outside the box and collaborated with Lindy Esquivel from Lindy Esquivel && the Littles. Lindy, a mom of three and influencer, did a very great job guiding the users through the three hour events by popping in with charming videos and lives where she would emphasize how important it is to support small businesses and explain the ground rules of the games. Since she is a mom herself, her presentations were very relatable and felt like catching up with a mom friend over a Zoom call. She also presented all of the participating mom merchants in her videos. I personally loved that there was an introduction video of the veteran parent owners of Baby and Sunshine so the users got to know them and their company a little bit better.
Participating mommy merchants
A variety of small mom business participated to raffle some of their awesome hand-made items. I had introduced some of these business in previous blog posts but there were also some brand-new companies who participated in this event.
