1 – Username needs to be your company: This might seem obvious to you, but clients in the past have used their personal information during the account creation process which has led to confusion.

3 – Utilise ideabook: An ideabook is basically a reflection of your brand values. Therefore, it is vital that you use one!

This seemed to provide their prospective clients with more trust and ultimately allowed them to their expand social network. So, how do you create an ideabook?
4 – Link everything to the right page: When creating your projects and uploading different products, there’s an option to provide a link to your website. Make sure you link to a relevant page on your website in order to avoid confusion. This will provide your potential clients with a more seamless experience.
5 – Manage your supplies: Make sure you manage your ‘stock’ well and ensure you provide an accurate account of this. Cancellations and delays will impact your ‘seller score’ and remove seller privileges, having a negative effect on your brand image. Find out how to better manage your supplies.
