One of the most rewarding things I have done as an artist was to start selling on Etsy back in 2012. I thought it would be a good way to sell some of my original paintings, so I listed three paintings, added my name to my shop, and waited for them to sell.
Then I waited some more…
and some more…
and some more…
Well, I was ready to give up after three years of letting three paintings sit in my shop with zero activity. But then I thought, “maybe there is something I can do to get some sales.” I started researching and making changes and additions to my store and my products that eventually lead to over 5,000 sales since then. I’ve found a profitable home for a lot of my products on Etsy, and I’ve decided to share some of the things that I’ve learned are essential to creating a successful and profitable shop.
So, I’ve created a video tutorial and downloadable resource guide and added them to my list of classes on skillshare.com.
