Top tips for Providers
Useful tips that will make you a better provider
Choose your words wisely
When listing on platforms, choose your wording carefully and use the right keywords. Keep your title concise, but use as many descriptive words as you effectively can, so that your item will appear in more searches. The more descriptive you are, the fewer questions you’ll have to deal with from possible buyers. To find the right keywords, consider all of the terms you might use to describe the item, and then fit the words together. For example, instead of “Flower wall” use “Flower wall for Wedding & Events.”
