Follow these simple guidelines to make sure your items get the love they deserve.
Try to photograph your item in the morning as natural daylight is best. If you’re indoors open as many curtains/blinds as possible!
Inspired by fashion and lifestyle bloggers we encourage you to experiment – why not check out blogger Natalya Kanj’s Instagram.
Let’s be honest, none of us would go on stage without having had a quick glance in the mirror beforehand. Shedd is the stage for your preloved item – let it make a scene.
There is nothing worse than checking out the photos from the weekend to find your face is covered with a massive beam of light. Your item feels the same way.
We always encourage the ‘selfie’. If you’re selling jewelry for example, splash on a new coat of glossy nail polish and model that gorgeous ring.
Get your item to stand out by having a clear background.
Using images that are blurry turn off the buyer. Aim for a crisp, clear photo. It may take you a few attempts to get there but it’s worth it!
We want to keep Shedd looking as clean and simple as possible. By uploading a single image of your item you are helping Shedd users better identify your product.
Keep in mind the focus should be on the item, however, you don’t always have to use a plain background - play around with texture and print.
We want your stunning items to speak for themselves and it is important for us to keep the explore page looking fresh n’ clean!
Remember you are promoting your item to all the fashionistas in Dubai so having a washing machine or the pet cat in the background is not a good look.
Show everyone how much you love your item by giving it a little TLC before photographing.
It is important to let the buyer know the details about your item. Consider including where you purchased it, whether it is new, old or used, original price, size, brand and material. The more details you include here the easier it will be for the buyer to know they definitely want your item!
Shedd uses #hashtags as key search words. If a user is looking for a silver clutch bag for a wedding, then they would type #silver #clutch #bag #wedding rather than #dubai #fashion #nice. Remember to include a space in-between each #hashtag!
We all feel a little more comfortable if we know who we are talking to - consider uploading a profile picture. If you are a brand then we highly recommend you upload your brand logo.
