What does everyone do to promote their work? Have you seen these things increase your sales?

I’m afraid I haven’t hit the bigtime yet. I have not sold any pieces directly from the site, but I have sold cards by having them printed and available to show people. For instance, I took a box of them to work one day along with an order form with thumbnails of my full range (sold lots and prompted a few orders that way). I also had a couple of friends and family members who enthusiastically played ‘agent’ for me and so I sold some cards to their friends. Promotion on my Facebook page has increased views but not sales.

I’m fairly new on RedBubble and I have noticed over the past week or so that people that seem to sell a lot of work also seem to be VERY active in groups, forums etc..

There are a number of Groups on RB that are inactive Sarah for one reason or another, but on the other hand there are many that are very active. I’m not sure that belonging to Groups actually has any impact on sales. I did hear through RB Admin that most of RB’s sales come from people who are not RB members. After all, why would an artist spend a lot of money on other’s people’s artwork? Some do, but probably not to a great extent when they can create their own. I do buy other artist’s work in the form of cards and I have sold a few cards to other members, but the framed prints and canvas prints I’ve sold have not been to RB members as far as I can work out. I have noticed that a lack of sales seems very common, but RB must be making their money somehow. Apparently T-shirts are the biggest sellers. Also, I think members with 1,000 plus images in their profile have more success with sales than those with just a few. I also think that you really have to have a BIG creative talent for the unique and unusual and a degree in marketing to promote your work. Promotion seems to be the key element with a BIG gift for selling. These are what I haven’t got, being basically a fairly shy person who hates to ‘force’ something on someone unless they have approached me first. That’s why I’m here, but also why I don’t sell much. LOL! So I am here to learn, and learn you can from other members, and the on line community spirit is very much alive and well. It’s a great place to ‘meet’ and ‘speak’ with others who have the same interest as you.
