Selling Art Online
So I have only just begun to think about really selling my art online. I tried a few years ago to sell on eBay, but mostly it was just stuff and not art.
As I look to this new bright future with my art going out into the world, I am overwhelmed by the choices available.
Here is a quick list of free or pay per sale places that I have come up with:
Then there are also the pay to be a member ones:
And there are the ones where they make your art into stuff that people buy like T-shirts and coffee mugs:
I am sure that there are a million more of each of these categories. This list does not even include when you sell art from your own website or Google shopping cart. So many choices!
Your Turn: Help me sort these out! Any suggestions on which one of these is worthy of my time to turn my art viewers into art buyers? I am also looking for art exposure more than quick sales if that makes a difference on which one to choose. Share your knowledge!
