An Artist in Business, How-To

16 Tips for Selling Online

No matter what website you use to sell your artistic creations, adding certain details to each listing helps to make it stand out from the crowd. Here’s some tips to help you.

#1: Write very good descriptions describing the artwork. Be sure to include details of the method you used to put that extra special touch that you put into each creation that you make.

#2: Write about the inspiration for the item. Include details to make it a one-of-a-kind story.

#3: Mention the detail to packaging the item for a safe arrival.

#4: Include a method to contact you just in case the potential buyer has questions.

#5: Be sure to have several payment methods. Some people like the convenience of online payments while others want to buy on the phone and some want to pay by personal check from a printed invoice that is sent by mail. Cover all your bases.

#6: You want to eliminate surprises. You want your customer to trust you. Giving full details is one way to do that. Full details can include satisfied customer testimonials.

#7: Don’t make promises that you can’t keep. For Example: Don’t say that you will ship within 24 hours but then wait till a check clears to ship. Say instead that once the payment clears, you will ship within 24 hours.

#8: Double check your descriptions for spelling errors. You want to have a professional appearance.

#9: Provide a way, such as a link, for customers to find more of your creations.

#10: Be sure to put copyright info in your listing, like this:
Copyright © 2018. All Rights Reserved.

#11: Include your policy. Here’s an example:
Policy: (your name or company name) strives to give a full and detailed description of items listed. Photographs showing details about the original creation are included. Please review the images and description thoroughly before buying.

#12: Every attempt has been made to give the true colors of the art offered. Depending on computer screens, images may appear different than the actual item.

#13: You can also add a money back guarantee, if you so desire, such as:
100% MONEY BACK GUARANTEE – NO QUESTIONS ASKED.

#14: Plug yourself:
Customers are our top priority. We strive to give you full details, the size of the item, the condition of the item, we answer emails promptly, pack your item securely, ship super-fast and let you know that your package is on its way! We go all out to earn your trust and then your business.

#15: Give a deal to combine items to save on shipping fees, like this:
