I am completely invisible on Threadless...
I`ve brought this up with Threadless before but the answer was quite frankly ridiculous.
If I search for my designs nothing comes up. Yes, yes -- I know we are all competing with thousands of other designs with the same tags or titles. But when I assign a unique tag to one of my designs -- such as xyz239 -- and then search for it still nothing comes up. The Threadless explanation was that popular designs come up first. Designs that have had sales come up first. Designs that are commercial come up first. The more your design is searched for the more it is likely to show up in a search.
So -- those of us new to Threadless are unlikely to ever appear on a search if no one can find us in the first place. Catch 22: you don
t show up because youve never shown up before.
m still constructing my store. Whem Im happy with my designs I will post thye direct link to my collections on my social media sites in the hope customers will then be taken directly to my work. But if they are not actually searching then Threadless will still consider them worthless. Potential customers who are not in my social circle will never find my designs.
I will try it for a couple of months. If I am still invisible in searches I will delete my site.
