Post by: Zilpa on August 24, 2014, 08:50:29 PM
Hi all I just wanted you to be the first to know, so far I have sold 2 of my white on black drawings at the Sala exhibition and there is still a couple of weeks to go. I sold the Eyes in The Dark ( a drawing of cat eyes) and King (one of my lion drawings).  :yippee: :yippee: :yippee: :yippee: :yippee:

 :thankyou: Mea, Cyril and Denise. Mea I have a tough time choosing between money and recognition. I think I would have to flip a coin there, but  the money is paying for my canvas prints for my January exhibition.

This is just great Zilpa.  I have been following your journey and need some advice.  Have been thinking about a website for my art.  I know you did this.  How did you start and does it seem worth the effort.  Do you have business cards?  Thanks for any help.  Lynn

Hi all, sorry I have not been around much to reply to your comments. I am still running after mum and have just launched my exhibition, at which (not bragging or anything) I have just sold 2 pieces  one digital and my biggest oil painting I did a year ago of the big wave. I was finally able to varnish it for this exhibition. Lynn I sell most of my work through facebook. I have my art page and also our gallery has their page which is how I sold my big one. I do have a web page as well but do not at the moment spend enough time on it which I intend to correct shortly. I set my webpage up with weebly which is quite easy to do had I known that I would go through this hard period I probably would have waited but you never know what is in front of you and I will get back on track soon. I also have a big following in twitter and  FAA, Redbubble and Society 6 are definitely worth looking at. I tend to use them more for my digital stuff and for prints of my originals. Cheers Zilpa

 :thankyou: Mea, Robin and Natalie you will be pleased to know that I have just sold number 3 so 3 down 12 to go as I have 15 in at the gallery at the moment. My digital work seems to be really popular. It is what keeps me going away from home. I am doing a heap of ipad art courses and also combining what I learn here and applying it digitally.

Mazel tov on selling three paintings - that's fantastic news!!!! I need to create a website for myself soon - FB is nice but it would be best to have something more professionally. I'll have to check our weebly. Can't wait to read your next sales update!

Post by: MaryAnne Long on February 01, 2015, 02:01:30 AM
Sharon,

I use Weebly, but find it hard to get it to do what I want it to do when I add new paintings.  Was easy to set up inititially, though.

And, I have not set up a purchasing option since I really don't have anything to sell at this point.

I am hoping that things settle down here because I have not done anything towards marketing other than dropping off work at the gallery. I have totally let everything go while running after mum, now that she is improving a bit and not requiring 24/7 care for the moment I am hoping to start the marketing course all over again. I am planning on totally restructuring my webpage which will probably mean closing it for a duration to set it up again. I will let you know when I relaunch it but first I am going to do my research so I know what I am doing.
I have an order for another digital painting through the gallery so that is number 4 now.
