Ltp - Why Is There No Connection

Does anyone know why there is no connection between Limited Time Promotions and the image you are promoting? What I mean is if I put an image up for a LTP couldn't - shouldn't it show up as an option on the image? Then the customer that is wanting a canvas print could see a promotion running? There's no way to even put in a link on the original image page, or make any connection except a comment maybe. You get no promotional number, (I thought there use to be one) and no way to search for it if you had one. This area seems to be really lacking in helping us. Has anyone else found a good method to do this besides outside the site?

Yeah, I wish they did more with the LTP. I think these should be the #2 choice after featured in the shopping tab. I too struggled with effective way to promote these, but feel they are all but invisible to FAA shoppers.

It really might be that LTPs are just too good of a deal to the artists, and FAA doesn't want to over-place the LTP. That's probably fair but it does make them tough to promote and incorporate effectively.

Thank Mary Ellen. It seems such a waste if you can't make them connect anywhere except to copy/paste the link to an outside source i.e. FB etc.
I was hoping that someone has found a successful way to use them -

I guess I'll add this to the suggestion list =)

No, there is no good way...just posting the link elsewhere.

Which is a little sad...if my marketing efforts point people to my AW, I wish I had a way to show them what promotions I have going, on the page.

Yeah it's pretty useless. I haven't used the promotions in quite awhile. Did something change? Seems like before you at least got a number that went along with the promotion- now there's nothing? It gives you the social media buttons but that's it??! I'm not getting it. Why don't they help us out a bit with this and help themselves as well? Let's get this site working like it should before expanding...jmo

I've been wanting to ask about LTPs.
Can you purchase your own promotion? Actually would that be any savings?
What is a recommended number to offer?
Do LTP's show up as sales on the recently sold page??
One more!! - If you do purchase your own print (sale or no sale) does IT show up on recently sold page??

I would especially like it if it showed on your artwork page as a big deal. It really seems a shame if you're having a sale on an image and someone is viewing that they don't have a clue.

Melissa:

Can you purchase your own promotion? Yes.
Actually would that be any savings? Yes, because instead of the specialty size that an image is, it's a standard size...cheaper to produce.

I'm fairly certain that it won't show up as a sale on the sale page. I've never seen ANY of them there. I could be wrong tho. I don't know an ideal number to offer - I've tried differing numbers and doesn't matter for me (no sale thru there). But how would anyone sell in there?? The customer has to find what they want by browsing each page tho they can narrow the search by medium and the usual by most sold etc.

An item you personally purchase will NOT show in the recently sold.

Be great if the powers that be would enlighten us as to how the LTP is useful to us and how they are planning to make it worthwhile l.
