Finding what works for you as an artist is going to take time. Don’t let this scare you. Instead, embrace this and know that every other proactive artist will be doing the same thing … searching for what works.
It’s not about a formula. It’s about the approach.
My first approach revolved around the idea that streamlining the sale would help me sell more. I employed the leading ecommerce solution in the world, Shopify, to help me achieve this … and they did with flying colors — if this is what you think might work for you, I highly recommend their software, as it’s a great experience, extensive, and helps you manage your activity even on the go with their awesome mobile app.
Again, this approach wasn’t helping me the way I thought it would with my painting (it works wonders with my startup, wearabl), but that’s a different niche all together.
So it’s back to the drawing board for me … and I’m already onto something I think is huge!
