What To Consider When Selling Your Art

Where to sell your artwork?

If you have a website, it would be easy to upload an image of your work and start advertising. If you don’t have one, then you can easily create one with free platforms like WordPress or through WHMCS.

What is WHMCS? What’s good about WHMCS is that it allows you to create a website while allowing you to run a hosting business. So it’s literally like hitting 2 birds with one stone.

Social Media. Do you know that you can post your artwork on social media sites like Facebook? You can actually create a Facebook page, upload your work and start sharing.

The more views you get, the more chances of getting clients to buy your art piece online.

How much should you tag your art work?

This question can only be answered from the artist’s perspective. Only the artist can give a price tag to the time and effort spent in showing his / her talent. But if there is one thing to set your price, don’t undersell your work.

There are various factors to consider when pricing your work. You may either give it as a gift which is priceless. Or give it a dollar price that is worth your talent. The purchaser and the recipient value your work based on the price tag and a sentimental value based on the fact that’s given.

Consider your years of experience

If you are a novice and it’s your first artwork, you may not sell your piece based on the selling price of established artists. So your price tag has to be justified by the factors surrounding your work.

Your art, whether it be in writing, in a form of painting or music should set expectations. Not everyone will be appreciative of your work. So you have to set expectations that are attainable. If you agreed with a client in writing that you are going to paint a portrait, show them a sample of your work. Your sample sets an expectation of the result.
