So, you’ve already come up with genius designs and applied them to products in the launcher. Congrats—that’s most of the graft done. Here’s what remains on your to-do list to start winning sales. Take note and start ticking tasks off ✔️
1) Order samples. It’s always worth it
Head to the Listings section of your dashboard to get started. Creators who order samples are proven to be more successful than those who don’t—generating 3x more profit. Not only do samples make for great content creation, for some, it’s important to see and feel the quality of their products in real life. Find out benefits here.
2) Prepare a promo code
Next up, treat your fans to celebrate your product launch. An incentive goes a long way. Create a promo code in the promotions tab of your dashboard. Now let fans know how to apply the discount at checkout.
Head to Canva, choose from hundreds of free design templates, and create the perfect imagery to announce your sale on social media. Feature your sample photos, include dates and times the discount will be active, the discount code they need to enter (e.g. DISCOUNT10), and the discount amount.
3) Create content and promote on socials
Creators who incorporate samples into their promotional content are 6x more likely to get a sale compared to those who don’t. Our advice? Grab your sample orders, head to a photo hotspot and get snapping. Next, share it with fans on socials, along with links to your products. It will increase traffic to your store, boost product sales, plus you’ll have a blast. Find the best ways to promote your samples here.
Once you’re done, tag us with the hashtag #CreateShareEarn. We’ll feature our favorite promo images on our Spring feed. See our best promo examples below.
4) Take advantage of platform integrations
Any promotional content you post on socials should link straight to your listings. Present products underneath your videos using the YouTube Integration, or set up the Instagram Shopping Integration to begin tagging your products in posts (and more). Don’t have access yet? Start using the Linktree Integration, available to all creators right now.
