1. Upload More!

Why? More art = more money.  Even if you have other shops online, adding all of your designs to TeePublic will significantly expand your brand. Are you finding more success on other platforms? Check your portfolio size there vs. on TeePublic; most likely that's due to the number of quality designs you have available for sale.

2. Optimize your Tags! 

Why? Tags are how you appear in search! Check out the do’s and don’ts of tagging to learn more. 

3. Promote!

Why? Designers often underestimate the effect that self promotion has on their sales, regardless of their following. Think of it like this: when we post, we’re sharing designs with a very broad audience, and only some of them might care about what they’re seeing. But if you target a very specific niche on your own, you are way more likely to get actual fan engagement, which has a higher chance of translating into sales. Share one of our pre-made ads to your social media channels (or, make your own!) and let your fans and followers know about your TeePublic shop, or of any site-wide sales!

Take it from artists in the community....
