How do I promote my Artist Shop?
While there may be opportunities to cross promote with Threadless (like the Discover Artist Shop Feed), promotion of your designs and Artist Shop is primarily in your hands. However, we know that, as an artist, spreading the word about your Shop and designs is a top priority, and we're going to help you get the word out!
You can find lots of tips and tutorials about how to promote your Shop on our Creative Resources blog! It's full of great info like how to make your first sale, how to make your Shop more visible in search engines, and how to use social media ads.
Speaking of social media, your Shop comes fully equipped with share buttons for the most popular social networks! You'll be able to share specific designs immediately when you create a new product and from Shop product page!
We're also working on adding MailChimp integration to help you promote directly with your fans and more promotional tools to come!
We've also created an Artist Shop Spotlight and Instagram so we can highlight some of our fave Shops. Also, the Discover feed is a great way for customers to navigate Shops and find new designers that fit their style.
Keep in mind, your Artist Shop is completely separate from the Threadless catalog, but it will be linked from your Artist Profile page. In addition, Artist Shop designs may be selected to be highlighted on Threadless. If we’d like to highlight one of your designs, we’ll reach out directly to you for approval.
