Default Nicki's Guide to Having a Successful Shop.

Okay, so I've noticed that a lot of people have been asking "How do I make my shop more popular?" So I decided to create a guide.

NOTE~ This is just how I do it and is not necessarily the only way.

1.) Put the link in your siggie, But do it in a way so that it stands out. (Like mine)

2.) Add more things! When people see a shop, they like seeing a lot of options.

3.) Make sure you have a good discription in the title. Like if you just put "Avvie and Siggie Shop," no one will come.

4.) Have at least ONE thing that's your specialty. For example, mine are my beams. (For now LOL)

5.) Make original things. Have options that no one else or that few people have. At least ONE. For example, I now have these "Personal Coat of Arms" avvies that I draw that people seem to like.

6.) Show LOTS of examples. I find that it helps.

7.) Have an interesting display on your shop. Make it colorful, have a nice banner, etc.

8.) Put your name at the corner of every order. That way if people like it, they know who made it.

9.) Have your avvie be something that YOU made. It's another type of advertisement.

10.) Deliver orders in a TIMELY MANNER. This is probably one of the MOST important things. People like it when their order gets done quickly or in a timely manner. If you are busy and don't have time, tell your customers that, while they still may order, they won't get done until (insert time here).

11.) Have forms! I can't stress this enough. People want direction. If you have forms, it's easier for them to make their decision.

And that's all I have. If you have anymore questions, feel free to VM me. And if you have anymore ways, please post them here and I will put them on the first post under "More Ways by Various BI members."

1.) Make sure your customers give you credit. That way, people will see what you can do, which will make them more likely to order, too! (Thanks Ruby!)
