View Full Version : New Artist's Marketplace at WetCanvas!

By popular demand - take a peek:
If you produce your own instructional books, educational videos, motivational materials, or even your own easels, drop me a line and begin selling direct through WetCanvas!
You won't need a merchant account either - this is being run in a similar manner to ArtistNation. We provide the community and handle all the credit card processing, etc. - you handle fulfillment. 10% commission is all we ask.
If you are interested, drop me a line at firstname.lastname@example.org.

I just love these little goodies that you keep coming up with!
Goodness, do you ever rest?
Wow, Scott. I must be getting Mom's psychic powers. I thought of the question I posted in the Cafe about a week ago. Here you've provided a venue to cover it.

Hehe - well, the way I see it, with over 100,000 unique visitors a month (and growing exponentially), it makes a lot of sense. Besides, there are some really neat products out there - just need to get some exposure where it belongs.

Can we charge for critiques?

Technically, you could, although since one can get a fairly thorough critique for free either through Johannes or the Critique forum here, you might not see much in the way of business. But you could try... :-)

Scott, another great idea! Always nice to see these new areas appear at Wetcanvas.

People might pay me to be quiet.

Okay....now I just need one of those great ideas for something that everyone will want...will not cost anything to produce...can be shipped cheaply...okay, so maybe not every one would want a little artist beanie baby! or would they?...

Am having mixed feelings about a proposal from my son...he has a Tshirt shop, where he custom prints images etc. He has asked me to produce some florals and scenes etc that he can use with my signiture. Think this new marketplace is appropriate for that? I am still questioning my doing this at all.

Carol, I know a number of artists around Atlanta who supplement sales with designs on tee-shirts, on tote bags...I would go for it if he feels they will sell. Just make up a few and check out your market! Florals do really well in the summer months. carly

The trick is to get them out there (online), and market them first to your existing customers. That's a great first run testbed.
To make these kinds of things easier, we are working on adding a "patron manager" tool to ArtistNation, where you can manager your email lists, handle mass mailings, etc.

Worth a try I guess Carly... http://www.wetcanvas.com/ubb/smile.gif Carol
