Sell your photographs, illustrations and designs

Sell your photographs, illustrations and designs

With Picxe, you have your portfolio and unique online store in a single site. Picxe is positioned as a comprehensive service that allows you to share, organize and market your art, design, and photography images.

Picxe is in Beta. During this period, those who register and upload 30 images in at least 3 categories will receive the pro account for life!

The Picxe site is in Spanish. I’m a native English language speaker and I have studied Spanish. But can read more Spanish than I can speak. As a study exercise, I registered on the Picxe site without translating the site into English. Well, I did look up some Spanish words in my Translate iPad app while completing the Picxe site sign up on my computer. But, of course, you can use Google Translate to view the Picxe site in English or any other language. In case you don’t know, here are the steps: Go to Google Translate, which you can find here. Copy and paste this link: https://picxe.com  into the first box, and set the language to Spanish. Set the second box to English or other language. Then click the green “Translate” Button. The entire Picxe site now appears in English, or what ever language you have selected.

Since Picxe is based in Spain, adding your designs and photography to the site could help you reach a new market for your work.

Streetlance Site Launched to Help Artists Make Money From Their Creative Skills

Call For Artists: Mini Job Opportunity

 Streetlance is a new online artist marketplace where people can buy and sell creative mini services!

The Streetlance.com goal is to inspire people to be more creative, so they will find their own way to make money online with their creativity.  Streetlance will help bridge the gap between the artists’ expectations and the reality of employment.

The website beta version was launched a couple of months ago and Streetlance is looking for more talented artists to join their community. Fashion designers, writers, songwriters, entertainers, illustrators, painters, performers, dancers, musicians, graphic designers, videographers, typographers, are all welcome to join Streetlance.

The site offers artists great opportunities to pitch themselves and make money by doing microjobs. As freelance artist on Streetlance you can post a pitch and offer a small creative service for a small price which you can finish in for example 15 minutes. Great way to promote yourself, gain experience, make money, build up a portfolio and attract new clients. And by the way, small orders leads to big orders right?

To be successful, artists must be creative, think out-of-the-box and come up with unique ideas and custom services. Registering is free and you can post unlimited pitches–they even recommend you to do this. There are also tools available which you can use to share your pitch socially to attract more buyers.

Here are a couple of tips for selling on Streetlance:

  • It takes a unique pitch to sell your creative skills. Quality is important.
  • A pitch should be creative and uploaded with a real video with an introduction and example of your product or service.

What You Can Learn From This Artist’s Approach

After I accepted Dan St. Andrei’s friend request on Facebook, he sent me this note:

Thanks for accept, Marie!
It is also a great pleasure for me to invite you to visit my online portfolio. Your opinion will be challenging for me.
Have a nice weekend,
Dan

Dan St. Andrei in an art director, photographer and painter specializing in advertising, art photography and graphic design. Dan is based in Lisbon, Portugal, and also have studios in Miami, FL and Bucharest, Romania.

His line “Your opinion will be challenging for me” caught my attention. It signaled his professionalism and confidence. His site is impressive too!

Dan’s approach impressed me.  Some artists can learn from his approach.

Here are a couple of examples of how *not* to present your art–

I’ll never forget one artist who asked me to review her site to select art for one of my projects. I took the time to go over her site and copied one of her titles directly from her website then let her know that I could use that one for the project.  She immediately emailed her reply  *that’s not my title!”   Her site is in such a mess that her art is mis-titled and she used that as impetus for lashing out. Another artist sent me a PDF of 100 numbered images to review. There were problems with his numbering on his images. Midway down the list numbers began repeating so that two completely different images had the same number.  It may sound harsh, but most would have trashed the PDF and not replied. But I was kind enough to reply and inform him of the problem. In his responding reply, rather than correct his numbering system and resend the corrected PDF,  he sent me instructions that I should count –1,2,3, etc. Like I needed a lesson in how to count to 100!

Get your materials in order before sending them out. If you need help you will find my ebook guide for artist making submissions  and submission resource lists here.
