Prepare your Shapeways Shop for Black Friday

Is your shop ready for the biggest shopping day of the year on Shapeways?

Vertigopolka is ready for the rush with these Star Holiday Ornaments

We’re just one week away from Thanksgiving here in the US and the buzz surrounding Black Friday is already louder than Midtown Manhattan. We want to see all Shapie Shop Owners break their sales records in the next two weeks so consider this your friendly reminder to get ready for the surge of traffic!

Here are 5 tips to help you get there:

1) Tag: Tag your products well! People will be searching the site at a faster rate than any other day of the year
2) Photograph: Post those great photos you’ve had trapped on your iPhone, Photos sell more!
3) Merchandise: Organize your shop! Do you offer a wide variety of products? Curate them well for easy shop ability
4) Title: Make sure your title is descriptive, your model description includes keywords that people may search to find your product and your photos are up to date – we are running a marketing campaign through Google Shopping and your product may show up if people search for those keywords
5)Share: People are looking for new and interesting things to buy every holiday season, so take advantage of the opportunity to share your shop with friends! Tweeting: “Check out the deals going on in my Shapeways Shop and give a unqiue 3D printed gift this holiday” or “Hey #BlackFriday shoppers, check out my custom product line” etc. goes a really long way! Many of you shared the gift guide, and it’s showing in the sales of your shop :).

We hope you’re excited, Shapies, it’s the most wonderful time of the year, and for many of you, the most historically lucrative month on Shapeways.
