When designers are creating products, we find that they consistently make three common mistakes. We’ve discussed these confusions below, and this information should help you create the best-possible products (while also maximizing sales).
#1 Designs aren’t adjusted on the product
Customers are surely enticed by your wide range of products, but they’re making the purchase because of your designs. If these designs aren’t optimized, you’ll have a tough time making a sale.
Specifically, you’ll want to assure that the design is properly-placed on the product; the standard procedure is to place it in the middle of the chest. Furthermore, small designs aren’t desirable, as buyers want to showcase your creative creations.
By assuring that the designs are sized and placed correctly, you’ll increase your chances of making a sale. Otherwise, customers will likely ignore the design or be dissatisfied with their final product. Furthermore, you can’t rely on your buyers to make the change; only 5% of our customers use the edit function in the marketplace, so it’s especially important that you get the position right.
#2 Design’s color doesn’t match the product’s color
Is your design primarily white? Then it probably wouldn’t look too good if it’s placed on a white product. Placing a design on a similarly-colored product will compromise the overall quality, as your design won’t have the ability to ‘pop’ off the gear.
Fortunately, this is easily avoidable. You can deactivate specific product colors, assuring that a customer never purchases any design-product combination that isn’t top-notch.
#3 Some designs aren’t adequate for certain products
If you just finished creating a design, we’re sure you’re anxious to add it to all of our available products. However, you should hold tight and consider whether your design would be a proper match for all of our products.
For instance, a design that features alcohol and beer probably wouldn’t be appropriate on kids apparel or (gasp) maternity clothing. In other words, you’ll need to pay specific attention to your product choice before the design goes live.
Overall, many of these issues can be avoided by using the built-in template. This feature will help guide you through much of the product-creation process, assuring every aspect is top-notch.
