How do I sign up
Signing up with Look Lane is easy! Simply follow the registration process which involves setting up an email address and password linked to your account, then once we have approved your application you can get on with setting up your profile page and designing a bespoke shop front in our shop creator! Once you’ve been approved, visit the tiers page and choose the package that will best suit your needs. Click through on the link to sign up for the package and follow the instructions for setting up your payment details. You can see the available packages before having to register here, but you won’t be able to choose one until your shop has been approved.
I’ve submitted my shop for approval but have been told I’ve not been accepted?
We are very keen to make sure that we are showcasing the very best designer-makers from around the world and that everyone’s shops reflect the high standard of work from all our designers so if your shop application is not successful it’s probably something simple like the quality of your product photos. Your products need to be represented in a professional but creative way, why not visit hollybooth.com to get some ideas on the sort of photographs that work well, she offers really competitive rates too.
How do I become a featured seller on the home page?
Featured sellers are chosen at the discretion of the Look Lane team. We are looking for talented individuals with really stand out products which reflect the standard of work we like to promote. A cohesive product range, brilliant photography and a great story behind the brand always helps.
How do I get my shop and items on the homepage?
It’s a similar process to the ‘featured seller’ process above. We curate every item based on how much we love it and how much we think our shoppers will love it! We will be opening some spots up for advertising in the near future which you will be able to apply for.
Do you offer any advertising promotional packages?
At launch we are choosing our advertisers and they will receive free promotion until we have some good figures and data behind us. We don’t feel we can charge for advertising at launch, we want this to be a collaboration between our designers and us for the first few months and then once we can demonstrate some ROI and figure out which spots are the most popular we will be opening up the advertising to everyone!
How will you be promoting Look Lane?
We are running a 3 month promotional campaign with Mollie Makes magazine, a PPC campaign with Google as well as promoting the site via Facebook, twitter, Instagram and You Tube. We would also love it if you could share your new shop with all your followers on social media!
How can I help to generate sales in my shop?
- Great photography
- Detailed descriptions with lots of key words – try and think about what a seller would type in when looking for a product and keep it appealing for buyers. (this also helps with search engine optimisation)
- Make sure you are also posting your items on social media
