I’m going to start putting the new things that I’ve listed on Artfire here in my blog complete with links, blah blah blah, all that SEO stuff. I’ve decided I really need to make a push to generate sales because I’m tired of treading water (oh and I’m broke).
For someone who’s really laid back, I can be very competitive. I seem to have lost that competitive oomph for the last few years, but there was a time when it was a driving force for me. Of course, after achieving the goal, I would get bored and have to start from the bottom with something else. Hopefully that won’t happen this time, but yesterday, I was excited to feel that little defiant surge of “if other people can make x amount of dollars per month, so can I” attitude.
There are two main things I’m going to do. First, I’m developing new products. The funky art pendants which I’m making with mini wallet sized prints of my digital energy art are really cool and affordable. Plus, I’m incorporating my prints into ready to hang wall art. I’m not talking frames and mats, I’m talking airbrushed embellished wood “mats” to enhance the presentation of the print in an affordable way.
I don’t know about other people, but I’d be more inclined to buy prints that are ready to hang as opposed to matting and framing them myself. I’m thinking that presenting them differently from the other prints out there might set mine apart.
Second, I’ve decided I’m going to try Artfire’s 45 Day Success Guide. I’m not the most self-disciplined person in the world, so I thought maybe if I announce that I’m going to do it, I’ll actually stick to it. Gee, wouldn’t that be novel!
The first week is mostly getting your shop set up and a getting a few things listed, so I got to jump to day 8 which is about writing in the provided blog. (Really? Another blog? Oh maaannn…..) Actually, they say that if nothing else, just write an introduction post about yourself and your artwork, plus include a link to your main blog, so I guess I can do that.
So we’ll see how it goes. Such a beautiful day today, maybe I should wait to start everything tomorrow…..oh nooooo, get a grip, Laurie, remember the word “BROKE.”
Have an awesome day!
