Seller Tips: Artist Promotion Materials - Edition 2
In the months since our last seller's tips (http://society6.com/r/stap1) we've seen the community as a whole take more advantage of the Artist Promo than ever before.

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.

Pricing and Categorizing Your Work to Sell
When you sell an Art Print on Society6 you determine your Profit (how much you want to make), as well as the Retail Price (how much your customer will pay). The best selling members on Society6 know that their work must be both easy to buy AND easy to find.

Think about the customer's point of view. You've already determined how much you would like to make (profit) from each piece, now it is important to think about what your Retail Price is saying...

Tips for making your products easier to buy:

1. On the Post page, when you set your pricing, please use a Retail Price that you're accustomed to seeing when you make a purchase. For example, assigning a whole number for Your Profit of $5.00, will likely give you an odd Retail Price of $17.68. So always think about your Retail Price and shoot for a whole number. In the example above, the Retail Price of $17.68 would be far "easier to buy" at either $17.00, or even $18.00. You can always change your pricing by clicking "Edit" at the top of any post. Do not delete the post or you will have to upload your image again, and you will lose all previous Promotions you have received for this post.

2. Think about using the Pricing Filters in the Shop to your advantage. Price your Mini Art Prints at above $20, and they won't show up under one of the most popular filters in our Shop!

Tips for making your products easier to find:

1. When you post your work for sale, just use the name of the work for the Title of your Post. You don't need to add additional words like "... Art Print", or "New Version..." or "by Artist's Name". Just use the Title of the work.

2. Carefully select the Categories that you would like for your work to appear under in the Shop. You must choose at least 1 Category (up to 4). Selecting Categories that don't represent your artwork may result in removal from the Shop.

3. Only add a Description if it helps to tell the story. Adding a Description is a good way to share your inspiration for each piece, and let people in on your creative process.

File Preparation for T-shirts
It's no surprise that when it comes to selling more of your t-shirts, it all comes down to paying attention to the details. Here is what the best selling members on Society6 do:

1. Be sure to add t-shirts to accompany each of your art prints in order to round out your product mix. You are automatically prompted to "Add T-shirts & more" with each new art print that you post for sale. You can also go back and add t-shirts later by clicking "Add T-shirts & more" at the top of any previous art print post you have made.

2a. Dark & light garments (PNG). To allow for full color spectrum printing on dark garments we require a PNG file. Because we lay down a white ink underbase any white in your design will print. Remove the background from your file and save with transparency as needed.

2b. Light garments only (JPEG). To allow for full color spectrum printing on light garments only (no dark garment options), you may upload a JPG file. With this option, we do not use a white ink underbase and any white in your design will not print. Try to avoid a boxed design by using white for your background (as white becomes transparent).

3. Position your artwork within the printable area so it is properly placed on the chest of the T-shirt. Make sure that your artwork is centered within your 3300px (width) X 5100px (height) RGB color mode JPEG file saved at maximum quality.

4. Make sure that your artwork is aligned all the way to the top edge of your file. We will automatically create the space between your artwork and the neckline of the t-shirt when we print it (the placement), please do not add extra space between the top of your file and your artwork.

5. Check your previews after you upload your t-shirt file, click to zoom and make sure it looks like something you'd be proud to sell, and proud to own on each color option that you select (or remove by deselecting). If it doesn't look good, delete the file, noodle the original and upload something that will make you happy.
