As a brand on Faire, preparing for summer means several things within the platform. Here's a step-by-step guide to ensure your shop stands out and thrives during the busy summer shopping season.

1. Do Your Research
Analyze Competitors and Trends: Start by researching what your competitors are offering for the summer season. Look for trends using Google, SEO tools, and social media platforms. Identify keywords that are gaining popularity and the specific phrases being used. For example, maybe this summer we see terms like, "big summer sun hats" versus "trucker hats."

Use Faire's Search: Search for "Summer" on Faire to see what products are trending. Take note of popular items and how they are being marketed.

2. Optimize Your Shop Page and Items
Incorporate Key Terms: Use the summer-related keywords you found in your research to update your product descriptions, titles, and tags.
Update Photos: Ensure your product photos reflect the ideal summer vibe—bright, sunny, and with the word, “vacation” written all over it!
Refine Titles and Descriptions: Make your product titles and descriptions clear, concise, and enticing, emphasizing their relevance to the summer season.

3. Create Summer Collections
Curate Seasonal Collections: Group your best summer items into collections. Highlight top-selling items and new arrivals that are perfect for the season.

Design Engaging Emails: Craft email campaigns that showcase your summer collections and highlight special promotions.
Schedule Regular Updates: Keep your customers informed about new arrivals and restocks throughout the summer. It tends to be a busy season, and the more times you can communicate effectively will increase your chances of increased sales.
