Special Holiday Chocolate Offers for Chocolate Life Members

A ChocolateLife member e-mailed me last week asking if it would be possible to let other ChocolateLife members know of a special offer she was willing to make - to provide a discount to ChocolateLife members who place an order this Holiday Season.

It's taken me a few days to figure out how to fit this in to the site neatly and cleanly because I am determined to keep TheChocolateLife as spam-free as possible. I don't want to do anything to compromise the flow of communication among and between ChocolateLife members that is developing by overwhelming everyone all the time with ads and such like.

So I am trying an experiment this year. If you are a ChocolateLife member who sells chocolate products, I invite you to make a special offer to other ChocolateLife members this holiday season and post a link to the offer as a reply to this discussion. Please be very specific about the nature of the special offer (see my examples, below). It could be an upgrade to free shipping or a discount, or a bogo (buy one, get one) - whatever you feel like offering other ChocolateLife members. Please identify yourself (either by your real name or your ChocolateLife member name) as well as the name of your company. Please also limit the number of special offers to 5 or fewer. You may post up to one photo for each item as long as they are no larger than 300x300 pixels and are under 100k each. Finally, your offer must have something to do with chocolate - any offer for non-chocolate items or that misleadingly links to an offer for non-chocolate items will be deleted.

This experiment is FREE to all ChocolateLife members who wish to make Special Offers to other ChocolateLife members. All I ask that you do in return is:

A) Use a special coupon or promotion code so that you can track the referrals from the site.
B) After the holidays share some information with me - how many orders and the value of the orders. I don't want you to give me any money (this year), and I don't want to know the names of the ChocolateLife members who placed the orders.

Happy Holidays every one!

Is anyone selling samples of beans? I would love to buy a pound of cacao beans, say, six different varieties. Some that are super chocolate and some that have the different nuances artisans love to find in their beans. Email me!!! It's my present to myself!

Hey, Clay, you putting together a Sampler Box? I'm in!

Hi all,

I've got a nice holiday special for all Chocolate Life Members.

If you order by December 19th at the latest, and you type "CHOCOLATE LIFE" in the "COMMENTS" field (note: NOT the "coupon code" field), I'll include a complimentary Patric Chocolate bar in your order.

Best of all, the current discounts on gift sets and any relevant free shipping discounts will still apply to your order.

Order here:

Very best,

We also will do a holiday offer, (also because we just launched our site! ), just add to the delivery address C/O and a 15% discount will apply to your order. You will not see the discount at check out but it will be applied on the invoice....happy holidays!
