How to choose the best tags for font products?

How do you determine the right tag for the product font so that the font is easy to find and might be visible on the first page on this website? :smiley:

Hi, I believe the first page is handpicked by Andy.

Tags will help you be seen by customers - but not necessarily get onto the first page. Just pick tags that are relevant to your font. (is it handwritten? Add Handwritten as a tag. Is it Serif? Add serif to the tags. etc.)

Hi @Khoirul_Amal!

The front page products contain handpicked products, as well as products that are trending and your favorite designers that you choose.

The key is to use tags relevant to your product as well as your presentation which can be just as important. Building a social media following to give yourself a place to get your work seen is important as well as you can re-direct your clients to the product which will also help it trend. :slightly_smiling_face:

Certainly, happy to help anytime!

Look at other fonts that you would categorize the same way as yours, and I’m talking about ones that you already know that sell well, and look at their tags/flag words.
There’s no point in trying to reinvent the wheel, and keep in mind that often times a font may fall into several categories (Mono weight, Art Deco, Decorative, Narrow, etc.).
But to be honest, I think that great sample images for your font(s) are at least as important. Showing off your font in great combinations with other fonts and artwork, even if that artwork has been created by other artists. Showing that your fonts can play well with others. This helps keep people from thinking that they can only use your fonts with your stuff. Naming/listing the other fonts or artists can help them, and may lead to reciprocal actions by their creators too!

I agree, @Brian_F, great sample images are key. That’s where you can show off a font’s full potential and versatility. So if you think that your font is great for branding, for example, don’t just tag it with “branding” but show how it can be used for branding via logo mockups etc.
