Society6 – hard work but intriguing!
I mentioned back in October that I had uploaded a few images to Society6. I only put 12 shots onto the site and then promptly forgot all about it and never heard any more from them. Then, out of the blue I got a payment from them for $5.70 so I thought I should check! So I was surprised when I visited my page to find that I had 3 sales – one paid and two pending for a total of $25.20 and so I decided to investigate some more and submit additional images to their site. As I did that over the past week, I saw more sales coming in and now I have six sales for a total of $44.70. Not bad from 12 images.
So what has sold? It turns out that so far just three specific images have sold, but on different products and hence for different amounts of money. The most popular image by far is this one:
This one has sold as a cutting board, a tote bag, an art print and a wall tapestry. The second is my shot of the moon over the monuments in Washington DC:
This one has sold as a wall clock! The final one is one of my digital art images of San Diego:
This one sold as a wood block 3 foot by 3 foot wall art display. Needless to say, this gave me a boost to start uploading more similar shots – I seem to have got some traction with skylines and so I add more to my portfolio to see if I could get some more sales from this interesting site.
