A guide to selling on Little Birdie

Hello artists and future store owners! Welcome to ALittleBirdieToldMe.com!

Finding a new website that you can use to showcase and sell your (or others’) art can sometimes be quite scary. Even just figuring out how to set up your shop and where to begin can often be overwhelming!

That’s why here we’ll walk you through the most important things to consider for launching a successful shop on ALittleBirdieToldMe.com!

What is Little Birdie and what can I use it for?

ALittleBirdieToldMe.com is a new website, based around the concept of customers purchasing artist-designed cards and sending them anonymously either as Little Birdie cards or as Postcards to their family, friends, coworkers or others, as a surprise.

The goal of ALittleBirdieToldMe.com is to create a safe and trusted platform for customers, which they can use for interesting gifts and messages, while protecting their privacy.

To you – artist and shop owners – ALittleBirdieToldMe.com offers access to a new, broad marketplace. Any artist can easily create a store on Little Birdie, submit their designed products to be sold to customers, and even curate products from other artists to sell to their own audience. These products can be in the shape of an artist-designed card to be purchased by the customer and sent directly from our platform to the recipient’s mail, email or SMS.

Why use Little Birdie?

ALittleBirdieToldMe.com has a fresh, catchy and viral-causing concept, guaranteeing the forming of a vast audience and community. Audience and community which you can be an integral part of and to which you can display and sell your work!
