Seller Tips: How To Make The Most Of The Monthly Artist Promo

The monthly artist promo is an opportunity for you to offer fans, friends and family a discount on your products. Below are a few tips to help you get the word out!

Creating Promotional Material

- Mix up the designs and products to keep your promos feeling fresh.

- Pull product images from your S6 shop. Product pages have the largest previews.

- Feel free to get creative, but make sure your text is easy to read. Be clear in your messaging.

- Give your followers a CTA (Call To Action) - "Show Me More", "UseCode", etc.

- Include your promo link when posting anywhere. Information about the promo and your unique link are Available HERE (only when a promo is active).

- Keep the vibe of your promo material relevant to the vibe of your artwork.

- Not sure where to start? We created a white text overlay png to help you out. Download HERE. More overlays are provided in the artist promo notification email. As a reminder, the overlay is ONLY white text. You need to use Photoshop, canva.com, or another photo editor to drop one of your original designs or product images behind the overlay. (You may need to edit the copy to fit the the current promo.)

Sharing Your Promo Creative on S6, Social Media and More

- Post promo information on the day it happens. If you post your Artist Promo ahead of time, your fans will likely forget by the time it arrives OR be confused by an inactive promo.

- Make a new post on your S6 shop with your promo creative HERE. Include your unique link in the Add Post Content section. The post is not something you want to sell as artwork, so remember to deselect Make this artwork immediately available.

- Post twice a day. That's conservative, but over-posting could cause you to lose followers.

- Link to specific products or a collection of your work during a promotion by adding your unique "?promo=12345" snippet to the end of the url.

- Use shortened links with services like bitly.

- Update your Instagram profile link with your promo link. You can also tag yourself in the caption so fans have a quick way to access your profile. EXAMPLE: "Use the link in my profile. @tagyourself" or "Use link in the @tagyourbrand profile."

- Email your promo link and information to friends and family with a creative message or design.

- Talk about your artwork and what inspires you. Fans/Followers love a good backstory and will be more inclined to click intothe product page (i.e. bringing them closer to buying).

A Few Examples of Solid Promo Posts

Tag #s6promo wherever you post for potential inclusion in future roundups.

Thanks for the shortened links tip, needed it so bad!!!! :)
Ashley Slade commented on Monday, February 29, 2016 10:00am
@Sanketi...you can't see it because the overlay is white and transparent. Just right click on the box that does pop up and save the image to your desktop. Then click on the saved image and you'll be able to see it. Hope that helps!
Sanketi commented on Monday, February 29, 2016 10:35am

Would be cool if it would be possible to have a bit different print for back and front on All-Over-Shirts. Like on leggings. Lots of my designs would just crave slight variation for the back, or sort of logical continuation to the back side.

awesome tips!! Wooo!!

Society6 Recipe to get sales.
1. Get a few followers. Do this by following others. Commenting and 'promoting' other artwork.
2. Release a cool new item in the morning. You will appear on society6.com/new. Your followers will also see it.
3. You will hopefully get 15 'promotes' quickly and then be seen in the Society6 art store.
4. You will have enough momentum with your 100 followers to get more 'promotes' on your item and have a trending item on your hands.
5. Without the 100 followers, you will only get 5-10 promotes on your art on society6.com/new because it will fall away from the page quickly and people won't see it after that

Nice! I did not think of using the posts in this way, I'd always post the promo info my instagram and that was it. At least I'll know what to do for the next promo :D
BEATCHES DESIGNS commented on Monday, March 14, 2016 7:26am
It really works??? who of you is really selling???
lenomadecom commented on Tuesday, March 15, 2016 8:16pm
problem is we don't have stats from society6 so it's hard to see if what we do in promoting our artwork, really works...
George Barakoukakis commented on Monday, March 21, 2016 4:53am
Hello. Can someone explain to me please the way to activate my promo and get my unique link?
AbstractAlexArt commented on Tuesday, March 29, 2016 12:50pm
I wonder how many likes you need on your work for it to start showing up in the main product ranges ? I know there are people who have been on here over a year and not old anything. It doesn't seem fair if new work gets so little exposure, I suppose it is down to the huge volume of work uploaded all the time. I feel as if I am having to spend far too long on the website just to get a few likes.

Well, this newbie has managed to get 3 items in the Society6 store, which amazes me after only joining on 24.3.16. When I search for these items in the store I still can't find them. I have been promoting and following as much as possible. As someone who is much older than many on here, I find the digital side of things difficult. Have the thing about the artist promotion until 3.April on my account page, but don't know what to do with it, given that I am only on Facebook and have few friends. Still, I am amazed that those 3 items made into the store on here. Not confident of getting any sales, but you never know. Love looking at some of the superb work on here.

Sound straightforward advice and with advanced planning completely doable. Thanks and @monstersaremessy will give it a go.
AbstractAlexArt commented on Friday, May 6, 2016 3:56pm
Does anyone know how you get onto the Discover section, next to where you have the
Following and My Posts section ?

I hope to be doing this the right way. I started working hard on getting my store to be seen. So far I've just got several of my work on the official store. I've made 3 sales but from friends and family. I will be jumping on one foot when I manage to make a sale from someone unknown!

Brand new here and trying to understand everything! Not sure I completely understand these directions. Love the one with the woman and the sheep on her head! Wish I had that kind of talent.
