Success Tips for iWantClips Artists
1. Upload Frequency
Many Artists find the most success with uploading content on a regular basis. At a minimum, this means uploading content 2-3 times per week.
2. Uploading Times
Many Artists find it best to upload consistently, on a schedule. For example, every other day at x time. When you upload in set patterns and schedules, it will enable you to obtain data on what days and times sell the best for you. It may be that uploading clips on Thursday night around 7PM seems to be a sweet spot! It'll take time to develop this data but, it can be worth it to identify such patterns.
3. Primary Clip Store
Many Artists have found it best to have one, primary clip store while maintaining a presence on a few other sites. This includes putting the majority of your marketing focus on your primary clip store, such as ensuring it's the only clip store on your Twitter bio, your personal website, etc. This allows you to direct your traffic to your primary clip store, as opposed to having your traffic becoming scattered throughout multiple clip stores, not knowing which clip store it is that you prefer.
4. Clip Pricing & Length
As an Artist, you are able to set the price of your clips to any amount you’d like. Many Artists follow a general pricing guideline of $1.00 per minute, plus $0.99. By this guideline, a 10-minute clip would cost $10.99.
Below are some data points we’ve discovered that may assist you in determining the pricing structure you’d like to set for your content:
- The most successful clips are priced at $9.99 with an average clip length of 9 minutes and 44 seconds.
- 30% of all clips purchased on IWC fall between the price range of $8.99 - $12.99 and have an average clip length of 10 minutes and 20 seconds.
5. Social Media Auto Tweets
Many Artists have found an increase in sales when turning on iWantClips auto-tweets. This will automatically tweet out reminders for your traffic to purchase your content and inform them on when a clip has sold with its preview.
6. iWC Popular Categories
Many Artists have found success with creating content in popular categories. As a starting place, we encourage you to examine the iWC top lists: https://iwantclips.com/top_lists
Scroll down to "Top 100 Categories" and "Top 100 Items". This will give you an idea of what is selling the best on iWC and you can create content within these categories to see how well they sell for you.
7. Analyzing Sales Data
Many Artists have found success with creating content consistently within categories they know sell well for them. It may take time to gather the necessary data, but we encourage you to always keep an eye on what clip categories sell the best for you, and continue to create content within those categories.
8. Try out New Categories
Many Artists have found success finding a balance between what they know works well for them alongside trying new categories consistently. This means creating content in categories that appeal to you, whether or not they are in the top sellers. This can also include broadening your range of content, such as selling audios.
