This post is to highlight the importance of getting your sets to be chosen as Staff picks! ✨
Staff picks (previously called Featured) are sets that the Iconfinder team considers of high quality, relevant to current events, and original in their concepts or design.
All these sets are gathered in this section of our website that customers can browse: https://www.iconfinder.com/icon-sets/featured. Here, you can also get an idea of the quality of these icons.
Benefits of being part of the Staff picks
Being part of the Staff picks section of the website, these sets receive around 80k pageviews per month.
These sets are automatically added to our Pinterest page. Iconfinder's Pinterest has 18k followers and receives 15.2 million monthly views. This is a massive exposure that your set can get. Pro tip: Colourful set backgrounds get noticed more.
Customers can filter only by Staff picks when making a search. We introduced this filter at the beginning of September 2020 and it's being used by around 2k users every month (given that its content is not that extensive yet).
The Staff picked sets are also included in weekly Recommendation emails that contain icons from designers that the customers follow.
How we choose the Staff picks
Here we explain How we choose the Staff picks.
As you can see, drawing icons that are unique, have a distinctive look and stand out from the rest has large rewards, so it is worth it to spend more time polishing the icons to look amazing! 🤩
