About This Class

bdfe3235

Want someone to give you a straight-forward run-down of what it's like to run an online print shop?

It's pretty simple, right? Then why does it feel so daunting?! Sometimes you just need someone to guide you amidst the many mini-decisions surrounding your online business. Why re-invent the wheel when so many have gone before?

This class is for those who are interested in opening their online shop of original prints as well as for those who have an existing shop and want a refresh. With the collective insights of several shop owners as well as recommendations for further linking, reading, and viewing, you absolutely will find a helpful tip in this thorough--though not exhaustive--class! Also, each video segment ends with a hack or a free download.

A few highlights of what you will learn:

  • Best practices for search performance
  • Foundations for a quality print--resolution, Photoshop polish, materials--nothing is left behind!
  • Step by step guides and inspiration
  • Branding practices
  • Helpful {and free!} online tools for SEO, branding, and marketing
  • A recipe for selecting what to sell
  • Insights from hard-earned experience

...and you'll hopefully gain a sense of community from other budding entrepreneurs while showcasing your shop's progress through your project.  

Oh, and don't miss the supplemental PDF for this class under the Your Project tab. 

Save yourself some time and sidestep a few mistakes by enrolling in this class. 

Especially now... just in time for the holiday season!
