How to sell on Creative Market ?
Follow below simple steps to create templates in Canva and sell them on Creative Market.
Step 1 — You must have a canva Pro account. It gives you access to all those tools that require creating canva templates from scratch. You are not allowed to sell already available ready to update Canva templates in their library.
If you work as a freelancer or for a company, you can customize these templates with your company or brand’s detail.
But for the creative market, You need to design your own templates from scratch.
Below are some of the Canva features, you must require while creating templates.
- Full excess to all the premium contents of Canva. i.e Photos, Elements, Videos, Music, Icons, etc
- Background remover.
- Download options in PNG and SVG format.
- Resize designs with one click
- Most Important is that you need to provide the links “Use as template” for your templates to your clients.
Step 2 — You can sell templates, for Ebooks, Social media posts bundles, posters, ads, email newsletters, mood boards, infographics, and many more items.
Step 3 — Now select any niche or category. It is important to select only one category otherwise would be difficult for you to get ranked your shop in the creative market. To build authority and customers retention, Keep your focus on one or two categories only. For example, you select social media post templates and further streamline it with niche “Fitness” then you can easily get ranked and start getting sales. I have shared a detailed blog on how to create fitness templates in canva and sell them on Etsy or the creative market.
Step 4 — Creative market has strict criteria for shop opening, it is a chance you get rejected at the first step or twice. To increase the probability of selection, you first need to start a shop on other platforms, like Etsy or Gumroad. Apply for the shop at the creative market when you get a few sales and reviews. This will increase the chances of approvals.
