Sites like ebay and Etsy.com allow artists to post their art cards and make some money selling them. Each site has its own benefits. Ebay is a great site to promote individual art work since a listing will typically allow a shopper to browse an aritist's individual website. Working in an auction format or with "Pay It Now" allows an artists to sell their work quickly. This is great if an artist needs some immediate cash. Ebay also has some fantastic forums for art card artists. Join a forum and get ideas for increasing sales as well as information on trading art cards. It is difficult to showcase a specific work or collection of work since listings appear by the date that the auction ends.

Etsy solves the problems of the auction style of selling since art listings are more personalized and do not expire in a certain period of time. Etsy allows a user to add a personalized profile and to categorize the art work that is listed. It is not uncommon to see ACEO original work sell for hundreds of dollars.

  • Do you want to sell more of your art or craftwork at higher prices so you can spend
    your time creating quality work rather than feeling you have to "mass" produce your
    art in order to make a living... but don't know how?
  • Do you need a proven easy to use plan to get your art or craft business going... but you feel intimidated and don't know where to start?
  • Would you like to have name recognition and have customers calling you... but don't
    know where to begin?
  • Do you want to turn your passion for art into a very profitable part-time or
    full-time business... but don't know how to do it?
  • Do you want to have all of the above without a huge amount of effort or becoming a "pushy salesperson" or an expert in marketing... but don't have a clue how to?
