Description There are two fields for product description – The first field is for the long-detailed description content and the second field is the snippet of the content. Each listing should have a unique descriptive content. Avoid using the same descriptive content for all your artworks. Each listing should have a unique descriptive content. Search engines like Google and Bing hate duplicate contents and even may penalise your listings, which will make it hard to connect with your artworks through search engines. A 100-word content that speaks to the emotion of your target buyer, express the feelings captured in the piece of art, will get the artwork sold

Enter the description of the artwork listing The description is what sells art. It helps visitors relate and connect to the artwork. Behold, a significant portion of your prospective buyers may be art novices, with probably little or no knowledge in the art. Try to stay away from “art jargon” when describing the piece. Write the description in simple and understandable language, which everyone can understand. Some angles to kick-start a perfect artwork description are;

What inspired you..?

  • the location,
  • the season,
  • the colours used,
  • the materials used,
  • why did you use the materials,
  • the inspiration of the piece,
  • the size of the artwork,
  • how difficult it was to create the piece,
  • the creating process, your children,
  • how others loved the piece,
  • how would the piece fit in a home
  • etc.

The snippet content shows up with your listing in the product pages. Only the first 40 characters of the content entered in this field will show up on the front-shop.
