Write to Sell

This week I’ve chosen CranberryCloud for the featured shop!

Here is the link to the item I’m writing for and what she has now as a description.
http://www.etsy.com/listing/55177933/mixed-media-print-the-impossible

I actually like a lot of what she has in her description and I wanted to use her to give you guys an example how sometimes just the order of the information in your description, the layout of it and a little fine tuning can go a long way!

Here’s what she has now…..

This is a bright little digital print of one of my mixed media pieces. The little girl’s kite is stuck! What will happen? She may climb the tree and see the world. She may go for help and find a new friend.

I enjoy using bright colors and different papers. The original is made with watercolor, Japanese papers and cocktail napkins!

The picture is 9 by 6.5 inches and it is centered with a white border for easy framing. The page measures 8 by 10 inches. It is printed on premium mat Epson paper with long lasting Vivera Inks. Please note that the frame in the picture is not included.

If you are interested in a greeting card with this image please send me a convo

It is shipped in a cello sleeve between two sheets of rigid cardboard to keep it flat.

  2. Wow Joanna!!! You've taken the same idea and presented it in a more positive upbeat way! I love the link to subscribe. Why didn't I think of that? I also love the way you tell the reader that this WILL make a great card and you MUST look at the other GREAT listing. The shipping and details sections are clearer and more concise. I'm going to print this out and go over my other listings. You really have a talent for writing!! Thank-you so much!!!

  4. I'm so glad you guys can see that just a little bit of changing can go a long way!

    Thank you again for volunteering your shop! Real world examples help so much and I love that people have been so willing to offer up their shops!

    ArtSnark...hmmm....can you copy and paste it? It seems to be working fine so I'm not sure how to fix it for you. There is one "link" that iasn't live, from the original description..could that be the one you are trying to use?
