Pretty sure January just up and ghosted everyone. Reeeaal cool.

When they say time flies, we expect it to fly back, right? I thought that’s how love worked. In honor of Valentine’s Day, I want to quickly shout out a cool collab we did with dating app, Hinge, because romance puns will forever be a lover’s delight. Make sure to send some high fives to the participating artists because their Valentine’s cards are hilariously awesome. When you’re done haha’ing, grab an orange mocha frappuccino and settle in for an informative read. Our team pulled together some great creative prompts for February!

 

Products to Promote + Trending Tags

We’re constantly monitoring product sales–from trending art prints to your cat’s favorite floor pillow. It is our job to know these things, right? Well, we want you to know a few of the key products and trending tags we’ll be focusing on this month. You already have a sense of what your fans like, so this list gives you an eagle’s eye view of the Society6 marketplace at large. It’s intentionally broad so you can focus on products that are a best fit for your artwork or brand.

 

Products to Promote:

Wall Art: Art Prints, Posters, Wall Murals, Wood Wall Art

Home Decor: Wallpaper, Window Curtains, Rugs

Tabletop: Serving Trays, Acrylic Trays, Acrylic Boxes

Trending Tags:

PRO TIP: When it comes to tagging your artwork, quality is more important than quantity. When a customer enters a keyword into search, we actually look at the ratio of your matching tag(s) to the total number of tags on that design. The higher the ratio matching of matching tags to total tags, the more likely you are to show up in search.

Trending Collections

We’re lucky to have such talented curators on our team–people who spend every day finding designs and products that customers love. To help inspire creative mojo, here are some recent collections that we’ll be sharing throughout the month of February.

The first of our collections is a new monthly series, Because She Said So. It comes from Society6 GM and tastemaker supreme, Andrea Stanford, where she showcases her favorite patterns, prints and decor of the month. These are the designs and trends you NEED to have in your home. Why? Because she has great taste—and, well—because she said so.
