I’ve been experimenting with selling art to people online, but not through Etsy or any of the other forums. I felt I could do better with direct contact here on my blog and on Facebook. I decided to try a facebook page dedicated to art sales because I want to help my friends Frankd Robinson and TheOuterCircle sell their art, too. I wanted to see if it got more traffic than my personal page.
It did not. The page seems cluttered and not any easier to navigate than the one I already use. They want me to pay for boosts and are always bugging me to put money into advertising. They told me there were messages I couldn’t find. I may not be smart enough to do the page. It doesn’t seem to lead to sales anyway.
In fact, since the safe at home protocols have been in place, I’ve sold three pieces, one from my regular Facebook page. And two from the blog. So that less assertive way of sales seems to be the way to go.
So I’m going to take the art page down and let you know about art for sale through this blog and my personal Facebook page. I’ll be posting things from the March show that had poor turnout because of the corona virus. Contact me by email or on facebeook if you’re interested in the pieces by Frankd and TheOuterCircle posted here.
This blog is brought to you by the generosity of people who support me on Patreon , buy my art, and who support me in so many different ways.
Cards and prints on some of my art is available on Redbubble.
If you find a typo, let me know, and I’ll send you a postcard.
