How do I create a pinned post?

What is a pinned post?

A pinned post is the best way to introduce yourself and for Sumo-lin gs to get to know the creators behind the deal. Additionally, it’s a way for you to highlight some of the key features of the deal and answer some of the common FAQs that you may get. Sumo-lings are super fond of being early adopters and brand ambassadors for your product - this is your best chance to share more about your product's roadmap and get them excited about your listing. 

Why should I have a pinned post?

A pinned post is often the determinative factor in helping convince a Sumo-ling to make a purchase! It can also address a lot of the upfront concerns and questions they may have about what you're offering. Trust us: it’ll save you a lot of time in the long run.
