It takes much more time and expense to find new buyers than it does to cultivating repeat business from your current buyers. Get repeat sales from your buyers by offering them perks such as free shipping, or discounts off price.

An Etsy shop feature allows you create discount coupon codes. In your Etsy store click on Your Shop in the top menu, then go to Promote and then Coupon Codes and select options to generate coupons.

With your Etsy shop discount codes you can offer 3 options–free shipping, a percentage discount or a fix price discount–and set a date when these discounts will expire.

Photo Artist Made $1000 in Just a Few Months With App

I’ve used the EyeEM App on my cell phone over the past few months and love it. I uploaded a small batch of my photos and most were curated into the EyeEm marketplace with one short-listed to the EyeEM Getty Images collection. I also access my EyeEM Market dashboard on my computer via their site here and have connected my Instagram account to EyeEM. It’s a great app.

If you are not familiar with EyeEM they are not just a sales platform. EyeEM has regular Missions that you can submit your work to for features, cash, and exhibition opportunities.

Since artists regular ask me for new insights and information on how to make more sales of their work, this EyeEM blog article caught my attention–

The article is how photographic artist Fred Bahurlet, a seller, earned over $1,000 from his photos on EyeEm Market over the last few months. He gives insights into what to do to make sales of your work. Whether you work within photography, painting, drawing or other materials, some of his words and advice may apply to you and get you thinking about ways of creating other revenue streams for your work.

Photographic artist Fred Bahurlet tells us in this EyeEM blog post–“I’ve found that an image doesn’t have to be extraordinary to sell. Simple compositions, everyday pictures, people in ordinary life and travel images sell well. I have sold the same images several times, often in the same month, and they are ones that I personally find common.”
