Let’s face it, you are on nuMONDAY to make money and share your amazing items with the world.
You’ve spent a lot of time making your items, setting up your shop and then listing them.
So we thought we’d give you a few quick tips to maximise your sales on our marketplace.
Good photos are essential to sales.
Our advice is to invest time taking your photos, try new techniques and ensure you show the item at it’s best.
When you shop online you want to see professional and clear photos.
We advise not to watermark photos.
Having watermarks can distract your customers from paying attention to your photos or items detail, whilst having clear and visible photos attract customers attention.
You can read our guide to taking photos here.
Describing your item is important as it essentially describes what your items if and about it.
Having good descriptions helps a customer know about the item so include things like sizes, weight, colours, material or whatever is relevant for the customer to know about.
Our search system is weighted slightly by Product Tags.
Having good Product Tags is important but do not go overboard on them.
You want them to be relevant i.e. if you were selling a Coffee Mug you might have the following product tags:
“Mug, Mugs, Coffee Mug, Coffee Mugs, Cup, Coffee Cup, Kitchenware”
We recommend having up to 8 product tags on items.
We only allow items to be listed in two categories.
Making sure they are listed in the relevant category is vital for a customer to find them.
For example, if they are searching for a light they are not going to want to see a greeting card amongst the listings.
We audit listings on a daily basis to ensure this is not happening so you may find your categories could change on your items.
If you have an item that does not have a category within our options then simply email us at firstname.lastname@example.org and we’ll create it.
Professional Looking Shop
Having a professional looking nuMONDAY shop is vital.
Customers don’t always look at just your item when they click on it but they tend to browse more about you as a seller and at your other items.
Making your shop look professional and welcoming is essential for success.
