Tips and Tricks: Empty Categories – Wedding Anniversary

December 26, 2012

tips and tricks head


Most artists put their designs up on GCU hoping to make sales, however many neglect a very easy way of enticing shoppers to buy – creating cards for specialized categories that aren’t already bursting with other artists’ designs.

Some sub-categories under main categories are often neglected, leaving plenty of room for a clever designer to swoop in and grab that niche. Leverage your designs and make them work for you, and you’ll be rewarded. The trick is to identify the niche you want to design for and create more than one design. Make a couple or three. Keep track of sales. If your new niche cards prove popular, design more. This is a strategy we’ve used again and again, and it does work.

So today I’ll be pointing out some neglected sub-categories under the Wedding Anniversary category. What you do with the information is up to you. I’ll probably be doing this a little more often, focusing on empty/semi-empty categories just begging for freshly designed cards to capture those sales.

The number in parentheses indicates how many cards are in that category/sub-category. If a category has less than 50 cards in it, I consider that pretty empty, don’t you? These aren’t the only empty sub-categories under this main category, so be sure to check the full list of sub-categories on the GCU site.
