You wouldn’t give an unwrapped gift, would you? It’s no different when you publish your class on Skillshare!

Don’t forget to wrap up your class with some eye-catching class merchandising to get your Skillshare class noticed. Small details like your cover image, class title, and class description can go a long way when potential students are browsing classes on Skillshare.

We rounded up ten of our favorite class titles and cover images. They all incorporate class merchandising strategies that are eye-catching and reflect the class content so students know what to expect. Think of clever ways you can incorporate your work and let students know what they will be learning. If you’re teaching an illustration class, use a colorful illustration piece for your cover cover. Teaching a photo class? Choose a beautiful image you took. But above all, make sure your class merchandising is eye-catching and appealing to students passing by!
