Another Painting Rework
If you love this painting, you still have time to make me an offer. Maybe 24 hours. After that, it will be completely reworked. My plan is to do it in the same style as the last one I changed. It will have no identifying marks when I’m done.
Marketing Art Online
I am coming to the conclusion that I want to consolidate my efforts for online studio sales with just one site, and that site is Etsy. I have redoubled my efforts on that site, and I feel that they do just about as good a job as any. My sales on Etsy have doubled, comparing 2010 to 2009. With that in mind, one still always has to market off-site, no matter what the venue is. More than one online venue is just too time consuming if you want to still have time to blog and make art.
Note: If you are an Etsy seller, you can greatly benefit from the new networking features on the site, such as circles and teams.
And speaking of teams, I have joined a couple of teams on Etsy, and accepted a leadership position on the Finding Fine Art team. The main thing that teams do is create treasuries for team members, which greatly enhances your visibility on the site.
Busy today with all kinds of Etsy stuff, so maybe tomorrow I’ll get to attack that painting!
