Release a New Product During a Promotion

Whether it’s free or paid, your followers are automatically notified when you add a new product to your store.  While releasing products regularly helps to stay top of mind, releasing a new product during a sale gives buyers an incentive to act quickly.

This can be a helpful tip whether you’re releasing a digital product or a print.

Make Sure the Buyer has All the Info They Need

One of the biggest mistakes Marketplace sellers make when setting up their product description is that they are too vague or leave out a lot of information for what the product includes. A good rule of thumb for your product description is to make sure you state what the product can be used for, who it’s for, how to use it and which software(s) and version it was created in. Include relevant tags and categories to make it easy to find.

Any images, videos or previews you can include also help give the customer more confidence in what they’re buying, making their decision easier.

Stay Connected to Your Audience

Keep in touch with your audience regularly so that they get updates of what you’re working on, when you’re running a special promotion or releasing a new product. Using your ArtStation blog or social media is a great way to get the word out, collect feedback and encourage people to share.
