Introducing iPhone 6 and 6 Plus Skins to Society6!

We're pretty proud of how lean our Slim iPhone Cases are, but for those that want to rep creative and the lowest possible profile, we're excited to introduce our iPhone 6 and 6 Plus Skins.

Using the same patented material as previous skins, these vinyl decals are incredibly easy for anyone to apply.

If you're already selling Phone Cases and Skins, the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus option will be automatically activated for customers in your shop and will use the file you provided for your Phone Cases & Skins.

We encourage you to please take a moment to review the new iPhone 6 Skins. If you need to EDIT them for any reason, just click "ADD T-SHIRTS & MORE" at the top of any post to update your file.

Or spend a minute to browse the best iPhone 6 Skins chosen by the Society6 community.

(Featured designs by Graphmob and Chips&Tea.)

Seller Tips: About Page

In this post, we'll discuss making best use of your 'About Page'. Considering the effort you put into a single piece of artwork, it's only fair to give it the greatest opportunity to succeed. So, whether you're just starting out or a seasoned vet, these tips should help improve your chances to sell.

What do I add to my About Page?

Add anything that gives potential buyers or community members a compelling reason to support what you're doing. Most commonly, this includes biographies, mission statements, portfolio websites and social media links.

Here's some rapid fire questions to get your head spinnin'...

  • Who are you? How'd you get your start?
  • Why do you do what you do?
  • Any notable successes? Any awards?
  • What galleries have you shown in? Any events coming up?
  • Any great press on you or your work?
  • Where can we go to see more? Add portfolio website & social media links.

Why is my About Page so important?

First, there are a tremendous number of customers, fans, brands, artists and community members already discovering artists on S6. So while we explore new ways to get your work into the world, we think it's important for you to put your best foot forward. Help us help you.

You're not only improving the quality of your shop, you're empowering the s6 community as a whole. Together, we can flood the world with great art.

Second, SEO value or Search Engine Optimization value. We mentioned this in our Tagging & Descriptions post too. This is important to know because Google rewards you for a compelling About Page. The more interesting your About Page, the more likely you'll appear in Google's results when buyers search for your name. The easier your shop is to find, the closer you are to a sale. Simple as that.

Consider these tips when writing your About Page.

Imagine, tomorrow morning, we're going to hit millions of phones, tablets, and laptops with a massive feature on your art. We're spotlighting your work, your profile photo, and exactly what your About Page currently says. Are your ready for that?

If not...

  • This is a great opportunity to brand yourself.
  • More does not always equal better. Find your sweet spot between enough and too much.
  • What will people find undeniably compelling about you or your work?
  • Add links to the bottom of your About Page. 

But what if I'm not a good writer?

Not to worry. We recommend reaching out to a supporter (or a friend) who knows you and your work well. Considering how immersed you've been in your work, it's sometimes helpful to have someone provide a fresh perspective.

How do I update my About Page?

This is pretty simple. From your shop homepage (society6.com/artistname), on the left below your available products, locate the text that reads "Add About Page" or "Edit About Page" and click it.

Seller Tips: Tagging & Descriptions

In this post, we'll discuss the importance of tagging and descriptions. Considering the effort you put into a single piece of artwork, it's only fair to give it the greatest opportunity to succeed. So, whether you're just starting out or a seasoned vet, these tips should help improve your chances to sell. 

What are the best descriptions for my artwork?

Let's start by thinking like your buyer. A good description is anything that encourages another layer of emotional attachment to your artwork. Examples of this include anecdotes, history, poems, commentary, your process or anything interesting about the piece that your buyer can talk about in the real world.

Why are descriptions important?

Two reasons.

ONE // By giving your buyers the opportunity to become knowledgeable in your artwork, you encourage them to give you real-life promotions. You allow buyers to become passionate champions of your work.

Think of the person who has already bought your artwork on a new iPhone 6 case. When your buyer talks about their phone case (which goes everywhere), they have something unique to share regarding your work. Whoever is listening is more likely to find themselves at your shop because they already have a sense of your work.

TWO // SEO value or Search Engine Optimization value. This is a big one. Google rewards you for interesting descriptions. The more compelling your description, the more likely you'll appear in Google's results when buyers search for work like yours.

We don't expect you to be the next Robert Frost, but it is important to understand there is definitive value in giving your potential buyers something extra to latch onto. Ultimately, more eyes on your artwork means more chances to sell.

What's the difference between descriptions and tags?

A description is something interesting about your artwork.

A tag is a keyword indicating what is found in a piece of artwork. This is priority.

What are the best tags for my artwork?

Again, let's think like your buyer. Add tags that your buyer would want to search for. If your image, titled "Falling Down", is a digital illustration of a bearded skeleton falling off a skateboard with blue bones, add some tags like "skeleton, skateboard, comedy, humor, funny,  skater, skate or die, broken bones, blue, beard, digital illustration".

Add tags related to mood, color, genre of art, mediums used and anything that actually appears in the image. You can use multiple words per tag if you separate with a comma. We recommend a minimum of five tags per piece.

Separate your tags with a comma. 

When your buyers search for something on Society6, our website is looking at your comma delineated tags. That's tech-talk for "use a comma to separate your tags for best results."

Why is tagging important?

By adding tags, your artwork becomes more discoverable - both on Society6 and Google. If your work is easier to find, it's more likely to be seen. The more eyes on your work, the greater your chances are of selling. Respectfully, we ask that you make this a priority when uploading as it helps us help you.

How do I add descriptions and tags to new artwork?

First, click on the "Post & Sell" link at the top of Society6.com. This is where you upload new prints.

Just below the "Add Title" field, you'll see "Add Description & Keywords". It is the second required field when uploading new artwork.

 

Seller Tips: Tagging & Descriptions

 

Once you've added your title, description and tags, chosen your categories, uploaded your hi-res artwork and set your profits, click "Publish This" at the bottom of the page to begin selling.

Seller Tips: Tagging & Descriptions

How do I update or edit my descriptions and tags?

Go to your shop and locate the artwork you're interested in updating. Click into your product page. There, you'll want to click on EDIT.

 

Seller Tips: Tagging & Descriptions

 

Update your descriptions and tags as described above. Again, we suggest adding tags below your description to give your buyer the best viewing experience. When you're done, click "Publish This".

 

In the end, the more attention you give to tags and descriptions, the more attention your artwork gets.

Society6 Presents // Photographer Kevin Russ

From freight trains to tundra, Kevin Russ captures his nomadic exploration in utterly understated images taken almost exclusively on his iPhone.

While his work is well documented, we wanted to understand the process behind the lens and invited ourselves on one of his trips into the expansive Alaskan wild. What he showed us was truly awe-inspiring.

We returned home, resisted the urge to summarily resign for a life on the road and begrudgingly enjoyed the bittersweet process of cobbling the experience together.

Kevin joined Society6 in 2012 and has been gracing us with glimpses from the fringes of civilization ever since. You can find his Shop here.

Or check out a few examples and find more information on Kevin Russ below.

Micro-Interview: Guillaume Cornet aka Mr Guil

Guillaume Cornet aka Mr Guil just started adding his artwork to the S6 community, however, he's clearly been at his craft for a while. Because he matches large format work with extreme precision and detail, I had a few quick questions for him about the process.

Ben: Love the favela pieces. I have to ask - how long are you spending on those?

Guillaume: I spend between 150-200 hours drawing the originals. Then I screen-print a limited edition of 10 (black outline only) or 30 (multi layered).

And you hand color, right?

Yes. The last step is colouring each print by hand, which takes another 10 to 100 hours depending on the number of layers on the screen-prints.

Are you showing anywhere?

I am currently exhibiting at the Affordable Art Fair from Sept 25 - 29, 2014 at the DECORAZON Gallery in New York City and Hooloon Art Gallery in Philadelphia.

Six Pack ::: 09.24.14

 

Welcome to the Six Pack. As our community continues to grow, we're always looking for new ways to connect artists, both recently joined and veterans alike, that might not otherwise catch each other.

Each Six Pack will showcase the diversity in style, concept and genre that can be found on Society6. As you can see below, we're featuring artists from around the world with styles ranging from paintings to patterns to pixels.

At a glance, you might find yourself on a pretty wild trip, but dig a little deeper and you'll begin to see the threads between the art and its creators. We all have a role in promoting each other. If you see something that speaks to you, promote it. If you'd buy a beer for an artist, follow them.
