Online sales are bigger than ever, and selling online is the future for artists and makers who want to increase their sales. Here’s how to get started.
Want to explore the opportunities available to sell your own art or handmade work on the internet?
Your own artist website is important, of course – and may actually be the best place of all to sell. You control your own website. You create the content, you can brand your site and upload whatever images you like. It is your 24/7 headquarters on a global level. Don’t miss this 10-point checklist for making your own website amazing.
There are other options to online selling as well. Third party sites offer a huge variety of possibilities. Some of them allow you to sell your original work. Some help you to wholesale your work, or license your art. Others focus on prints or reproductions, or placing your images on products.
Print on Demand providers have a huge presence online, and don’t require a huge amount of labor from the artist. They maintain the website, show your art, run the shopping cart, produce the goods, and ship them. This method may be a good side income for any artist, or even a primary one for some.
