How does Creative Market promote my products?
We actively market products and shops via the following channels:
- Email Newsletters
- Creative Market Homepage (Popular Products, Shop Updates, Handpicked Goods)
- Free Goods of the Week
- Blog posts
- Curated Finds
- Staff Picks (on the homepage): Our "Staff Picks" (formerly known as "Handpicked") section is a curated selection of new products we love. Our team handpicks new items, usually based on overall quality, a complete, detailed listing, and at least 3 - 4 effective product displays. High quality seasonal items are also likely to be handpicked. You can read more tips on getting handpicked here.
- Social Media (Twitter, Facebook, Pinterest, Instagram)
Creative Market sends out a number of newsletters to help you market your products and increase your shop's visibility in the community. You can learn more about each one below, and how to prepare your shop and products for them:
|Newsletter||Day of the Week|
|Top New Products this Week||Wednesday|
|Popular Products this Week||
|New on the Blog this Week||Tuesday|
|Trending Products this Week||Friday|
|Markdowns, new arrivals, news from your favorite shops||Coming soon!|
- Top New Products this Week: Every week we select what we feel are the best new goods of the week to feature. The best way to improve your chances to get into this email is to release new items every week and to make sure that the products that you're publishing are super high quality and stand out from the pack. Best practices include creating great product images and writing full descriptions. Having early sales and good reviews makes your product more likely to be considered for this newsletter.
- Free Goods: This email announces all of the latest free goods of the week. If you're a Shop Owner who is offering a free good, check out this article to gear up for the week of the offer.
- Popular Products this Week: This newsletter highlights items that have been extra popular during the past week.
- Blog Digest: This email announces all of the latest posts from the Creative Market blog. Our blog articles often feature products from our Shop Owners.

- Markdowns, New Arrivals, News: This brand-new newsletter we're designing will let your customers know when you've released new products, updated existing ones, or post an update about your shop.
In 2020, Creative Market introduced Curated Finds, which can be found directly in our menu under "Get Inspired." Our curators use this section to highlight beautiful products within a certain niche, including yearly trends, hot products for the latest design tools, and items targeted to a specific season or audience. We'll be updating these seasonally and periodically adding more collections as new trends arise, so check back often!
