Featured collections – an upcoming addition to the Nifty Promo Control Panel

the new featured collections pane

We’re really excited about the new featured collections pane we’re working on. It serves two purposes:

  • people who are promoting get some possible sources to work with
  • designers have a way to reach affiliates who might not otherwise see their work

In the image above you can see an entry in the pane. It’s made up of a 240 character (or shorter) description and has a collection image on the right. The image used is one of the landscape ones available via the collection page sharer button.

ℹ️ Here’s a good point to note about the descriptions – they’re targeted at the affiliate and not the end buyer. This means that using the description as-is from the collection is no good, not without modifying the language to aim it at the affiliate first.

To drum up awareness and to get some initial collections to use, we’ve dropped off a race-style competition on the Zazzle forum (Basic ProDesigners and above ony). The first nine to finish will each get one of their collections featured.
