Key takeaways from the webinar

  1. Get your shop started on the right foot
    Setting up a compelling shop is the first step in finding success with Society6. Be thoughtful with your artist bio as this is one of the main ways your customers can connect with you. Also, don’t forget that no shop is complete without an avatar and banner.
  2. Get familiar with the artist studio
    As an artist on Society6, you’ll be spending most of your time in the Artist Studio. We do our best to give our artists the most user friendly experience with our artist tools, but it’s still very important for you to familiarize yourself with the different features of the artist studio to make uploading and enabling products even easier! Remember to avoid rushing through the editing process as to avoid any mistakes that can result in cancelled orders.
  3. Set aside some time to promote yourself
    Spreading the word about your business is crucial to engaging customers and making sales! We make huge efforts to promote our artists but your personal audience may not know about the awesome items you have for sale unless you tell them.
