Online Art Sales

Sale

Artists, if you’ve had sales on Zatista or other sites, I’d like to hear about your experiences.

Yesterday, I received an email notification that one of my paintings sold on Zatista.  A 12 x 16 x 1.5 inch canvas of  poured alkyd oil paint colors  from 2010, titled Abstract Plaid #1, sold for $300.USD + $25. shipping.

Honestly, I have posted my art to online stores since early 2009 and this is my first sale of any of my original art. Over the past year, I’ve only had sales of cards and postcards on the UK-based print-on-demand site Create Today.

[ If you are not on Zatista or Create Today, and would like to sign up, here are the links– Zatista www.zatista.com + Create Today www.createtoday.com ]

I can’t help but wonder why sales occurred for me on Zatista and Create Today, but none on other similar sites? I know that at both Zatista and Create Today I’ve had ongoing communications with the site owners, and none on most other art sales sites. So perhaps the answer is presence and interaction, as well as marketing and promotions?

I like to think that personal attention does make that difference, as I work to set up my Transmedia Artist Amazon store–lining up some great artists with which to open the store. Attending to all the details myself. If you are an artist with an interest in selling on Amazon–read my PDF file just for artists, here:
