Your shiny new shop is now ready for you to add your gorgeous crafts and skills (there's never any rush to add items, we all understand that things take us a little longer due to health, energy or family commitments).
STEP 1: Product Images
Before you dive in adding your products, remember that your photographs are your MOST IMPORTANT selling tool. Make your products pop out the page screaming 'Buy Me, Buy Me' by following our essential advice:
TAKING PERFECT PRODUCT PHOTOS HELP GUIDE.
STEP 2: Reduce Image Sizes
Ensure all images are square, ideally 570 x 570 pixels and under 400KB. If you don't know how to reduce your image sizes, here's our help guide:

STEP 3: Watch our Product Listing Video
Do not attempt to list any products without first watching our product listing help guide, packed full of tips to help your customers find and love your products. Grab a cuppa as this video is about 30 mins long:

CRAFTIE FRIENDS NETWORKING
Every week you have the option to team up with a different fellow Craftie to share each others products, meaning your crafts get seen by a new audience each week 🙂
Look out for a weekly reminder in our Crafties Club to take part! Simply comment in the Craftie Friends group that you would like to join in and Joanna Hall will buddy you up with a fellow Craftie to share with from Monday to Friday. If you are not already in the Craftie Friends group, please ask to be added by commenting on our daily Q&A post in our Crafties Club.
New Crafties are welcome to join in when you have at least 5 products in your shop, so your Craftie Friend has enough items to share. Find out more about Craftie Friends events
