VOLUME – Tips & Tricks

Turn up the VOLUME 
at theVirtual Online Learning Ultimate Mega Event
Our first two Virtual Events were so successful, we’ve put three more on the schedule between now and the end of the year! We hope you’ll join us, either LIVE during the event, or later! All the videos will be archived and available following their LIVE broadcast times!
 
Join us:
July 24 & 25, 2020 for VOLUME – Christmas (and all Winter Holidays) in July
August 21 & 22, 2020 for VOLUME – Get ready for Fall
November 20 & 21, 2020 for VOLUME – Pre Black Friday Deals

What is VOLUME?
It’s a 2 day event of video presentations from our participating vendors hosted in a Facebook group. Some video presentations will be demos, some tours, learn some techniques, learn helpful tips, learn about new products throughout the day! PLUS great show specials for online shopping with our vendors!

You’d like to join us for VOLUME? Here’s how:
JOIN the group for FREE, here’s a link: https://www.facebook.com/groups/volume.glse/  Most member requests are auto approved if you’ve had a Facebook account for over a year and answer both membership questions. Otherwise, we check the group periodically and approve members who don’t meet the criteria for automatic approval! Posts are moderated to ensure that they are relevant, and to direct single vendor issues directly to the vendor (rather than to the group)

TOPICS: Once you are in the group pay particular attention to the Topic: VOLUME – <month> 2020; that’s the topic we’ll be giving the posts related to the upcoming events.

ANNOUNCEMENTS: Also, either across the top on mobile devices, or to the side on your computer, look for “Announcements”, that’s where we’ll categorize important information from us for you to refer back to!

CRAFT ALONG KITS: We’ll publish a blog post with a list of the vendors who are making “Craft-Along” kits available about 3 weeks before each event so that you have a chance to order and Craft Along with those vendors! If it turns out that their scheduled LIVE time doesn’t work for you – NO WORRIES! We archive all the videos so you’ll be able to watch and Craft Along at your convenience!

SORT POSTS: Scroll down a bit on the Facebook Group, and look for where the posts start. Just before the first post (after the latest announcement) you’ll see either “New Activity” or “Recent Posts”. You’ll have an opportunity to change the “sort” of your posts. For the event, we recommend you sort by “Recent Posts” so that you’ll see each new thing as it posts. New Activity sorts every post that someone comments on to the top, and can bump down new posts.

NOTIFICATIONS: On a computer at the top of the page next to “Joined”, or on a mobile device, touch the three dots in the top right corner and select “Notification Settings”. Set your notifications to “All Posts” for the duration of the event, so that you get notified as new videos are started on the page! You can always switch it back to Highlights after the event; but for the event dates, we recommend you set your notifications to ALL POSTS!

INVITE MEMBERS: Use the Invite Members link to invite your crafty friends to join us for the weekend! We are not bound by distance for this event, your friend across the country can join us just as easily as your next door neighbor!

TUNE IN: On the event dates, tune in at 9am, and GLSE will be your first LIVE video of the day! We’ll welcome you to the event, and do a short demo, and then at each appointed time throughout the day a new video from a new vendor will start! Don’t worry if you need to use the bathroom, or go make lunch, or take the dog for a walk, or help a kid with something – all of the videos will be archived, and available for later viewing after their scheduled time!

I hope you are ready for two days full of fun, laughs, learning, and some great deals on scrapbooking supplies in July, August and November!
