Making the most of Redbubble

Being a member of this fabulous community it does take a while to get the most out of being part of it and I am by no means an expert (especially when it comes to the selling department) but I have learned a few things along the way and I thought I would share my thoughts and experiences. Of course other people may have better ideas and I would appreciate it if you have an idea to add below this as a comment.

1 Follow the guidelines and be nice ok constructive niceness is also good but think about sending a bubblemail as its bad enough that you didnt notice the naked painter on the ladder behind the gorgeous harbour view you just photographed without somebody telling the whole world.

2. If somebody takes the time to leave a comment or favourite a piece of your work at least pay the other artists site a visit and maybe return the compliment.

3 Visit new work by your watchlist and they will most likely do the same for your new work.

4 Remember there is a life outside redbubble and people do real life stuff, like go for vacations or on African photoshoots with the BBC so they vanish from time to time, be patient most likely they will return.

5 Join a few groups and participate in the challenges they set, this gives good exposure to your work and adds a little competitive element.

6 Pimp up your profile to set it apart from the rest, I have journalled previously how to do this so have a look and be different.

7 Enjoy looking, learning and making new art and being part of this great community.

I hope this helps a little.

Paul
