You’re an artist! Great…. now what? Start selling it.

I did much research before starting I even considered the idea of selling my art…. plus I had people telling me that ” I couldn’t make money as an artist”.

There are a few ways to make money with your art

Sell art physically – You can make money directly with this

  • craft shows
  • Have a local coffee shop or local business hang your art on their walls (make sure to give them a few business cards for those that are interested)
  • Create an online store through your website or Esty to sell physical crafts/prints

There are many ways to sell your art online

With these ways you will make passive income, meaning you create the content and it keeps making money.

  • Art licensing companies like Jewel Branding
  • Print on Demand sites like Society6 and Redbubble (info on how to start selling with PODS)
  • Digital Downloads – Zedge (cell phone wallpaper), Stock Photography sites like Shutterstock and Twenty20, Ebooks like Amazon Epub
  • Affiliate Marketing – I use Skimlinks throughout my site
  • Crowdfunding Websites – Patron or Ko-fi This is my Ko-fi account.
  • Create an online class/podcast – love teaching people? Try Skillshare!
  • Create a YouTube Channel – maybe create videos for DIY crafts or educational videos or vlogs about artist life…. YES you can really make money with YouTube

Either avenue you pick, I would suggest picking multiple ways, especially if you are selling your art online! Society6 and Redbubble will not be enough to make a healthy income…. if you are looking for tips regarding these sites check out my blog #shareyourstory.

Also, make social accounts for your work! Get it out to the public.
