    I’m struggling with filling in my item descriptions. I feel like my mind was made for social media lol. Most of my copy is 3 lines or so. Anyone able to share tips or links to help me create content? I know that descriptions with more words/characters sell best, but I’m stumped! Thank you!

    I’m working through the Second Module and trying to figure out how to rework my Pinterest Business account to reflect the guidelines laid out in the module. I’ve managed to clean some things up but I’ve had a Business account for awhile now and I’m try…

    I use pic monkey for the photos. It’s really easy to use and there are several good tutorials on Pinterest for that.

    I’m struggling with figuring out how to best maximize my promoted listings… what should my daily budget be, what should my bids on items be set at, etc.

    Any insight on how to make sure I’m making this work for me?

    For me right now its not so much a struggle as a “head scratcher”…I sell mostly original, one-of-a-kind paintings. Ive searched (as a customer would) the word “original” and what shows up is a boatload of prints. How do a tag something to show its not a print? how come Etsy shows people prints when they ask for originals? Is there another term?

  6. Lindsey Hall says:

    Good question! Maybe something like one of a kind?

  7. Dina Farris Appel says:

    Lindsey Hall interesting…. I put in “one of a kind elephant painting” and did get more original paintings, but about halfway down the page, it started into prints. I also saw someone selling (astonishingly) original watercolors for less than $20….??‍♀️?

  8. Lindsey Hall says:

    I have prints of my paintings in my shop..so far Ive got about 38 listings. Watetcolor, oil and acrylic paintings. Some flowers landscapes, animals and theyre all a little different..is it better to focus in on one type of art to sell or is it ok to have variety?

  9. Aimee Wright says:

    I like variety!

  10. Dina Farris Appel says:

    I do think it helps to focus a bit….the shops I see that are the most successful selling art sell mostly one subject in one medium. You could also choose one medium and do assorted subjects, or go the other way and choose one subject, but do it in several media.

  11. Lindsey Hall says:

    Dina Farris Appel I hear ya, that makes sense its just so boring! Lol I like to do so many things!

  12. Dina Farris Appel says:

    Lindsey Hall I totally know how you feel!
