Seller Tips: Artist Promotion Materials - Edition 2
So in the midst of another Free Shipping Artist Promo (ending June 8th @ midnight), I wanted to take another opportunity to highlight some of the techniques we saw and to recognize some more of the creativity of individual members.
Some things to consider:
- Keep a healthy mix of design and product imagery between posts. Lots of people need clear visuals of what they're potentially being sent to.
- For Instagram posts, update your profile link to be your promo link and let followers know in the caption of your post - "Link in profile!"
- You can link to specific pages and products within your shop by simply adding your unique "?promo=12345" snippet to the end of any link.
- Make longer links less imposing by shortening them with services like - http://goo.gl, https://bitly.com, http://ow.ly
- Be sure to tag new AND old work to ensure it has the best chance of being found by those searching. Simply click EDIT at the top of any designs to add keywords to the description, separated by commas (,).
Keep in mind, the tips above are not exclusive to Society6 and can be employed for all of your personal promotion efforts.
