C O M S U B L I M A T I O N B A S I C S A N D B E Y O N D When setting up a virtual par- ty, it's crucial to have a set time to start and end. Attendees will want to know what they can expect and how much time it will take. Online experts recom- mend not taking longer than an hour. One thing to note when doing a virtual party: share an in-depth description of what you are offering, as it is essential to create value and excitement. Zoom is a great platform to use for a virtual party as every- one can be on live at the same time and interact together. Zoom offers its service for free, but it only allows for 40 min- utes before it cuts off. The paid version has no time limit, and you can have up to 100 peo- ple. This can be a great tool to build a customer base. OPEN YOUR ONLINE STORE Maybe you aren't comfortable with going live in front of people. There are other ways that you could begin to market your items. Start an online store with Etsy, Shopify, or Amazon Handmade, to name a few. You could also build a website to start selling, but I caution you that you need a following first or something that drives traffic to your site, like Google Ads. That is one of the reasons why people like to start selling on a marketplace site like Etsy. One important thing to remember when build- ing an online store is to use as many keywords as possible to describe your substrate, as it is a vital part of finding your item online. The best way to come up with keywords is to ask yourself what words people are likely to use in a search engine when looking for what you're selling. The more keywords you use in your description, the more likely your item will come up in a search. Don't forget to have a written refund/return policy, even if you don't allow for them.
