Society6 – more sales
I’m becoming more and more impressed with Society6 – I sold two items in March for $24.60. One of them is a digital painting of the skyline of San Diego printed on wood blocks. My profit was $18 on that one:
Yes, the site is very manual in terms of how you can upload images and apply them to products, which I have written about before, but with only 32 assets on the site, the earnings have been great.
The digital painting is done with an application from Jixipix called Watercolor Studio. I like playing with it when I am just looking to relax and you can very easily shift between the different presets and then customize the one you like. I just created a water color of one of my bengal cat series and have uploaded that to my shop on Society6 to see if that will attract any interest. This one was a photo of the cat isolated against white, but with a color wash to the background you can get an interesting canvas even though there was nothing in the original photograph.
If you have a Society6 account, please click “Like” against one or two of my products – I’ve no idea exactly how their search engine works, but I’m sure it will take popularity into account in some way! I’m thinking I might upload these to the stock agencies as well – would make a nice “I’m Sorry” card perhaps!
