Selling Your Work is Not Get Rich Quick

Every week I see a lot of talented artist and creatives set up website and shops. They are ready to sell hundreds if not thousands of pieces of their work.  

They post their work on their Facebook and their Twitter. They encourage other friends and family to buy piece. They post all the work up at once.

Then you never hear from them again.  They give up.  They are done.

Selling your work online is a long game.  You won't see success for a long time.  But once you do, it can be life changing.  Here are my sales on Society6 over the last 3 years.


As you can see, after 3 months of next to nothing sales, I wanted to give up.  But I stuck it out and it's paying off now.

When your sorry work online, you won't get rich quick.  You have to stay patient and keep working.  You have to build a plan and stay with it.  If you do, in the long run you'll be able to make extra money on

Stay encouraged.  Keep posted.  Don't give up
