Point Me In The Right Direction?

17 Aug

Hi, guys.  I’m sorry to put this out here on you, but I really don’t know where else to turn.

As you see, I just posted about my art and my decision to donate 25% of my proceeds to charity/acts of kindness.  What I need your help with (in the form of suggestions, tips, pointers, etc.) is how to get people interested enough in my artwork to want to purchase it?

I figured already that I would need to have matted (at the minimum) copies of several pieces to show prospective buyers, but what else can/should I be doing to help generate more sales?  My town doesn’t really have a lot of festivals and things where starving, unknown artists can set up a table and peddle their wares (or if they do, they’ve kept the secret really well!)  I already plan to create a website, also, as soon as I (again!) make enough sales to cover the cost of a domain name and the services of a website designer.

So how about it?  Anyone have any ideas on how to help me generate sales?

What is the only thing standing between the homeless and a home?  Money – the materials exist, they simply cannot afford them. Continue reading

Today I’m going to blog about the ‘Free’ part of my ‘Free, Fun or Interesting’ blog.  Specifically, free money.  Now, we all could use a little free cash, but most of us don’t bother because we believe it’s a scam.  Well, today I’m going to discuss Swagbucks, and its use to get free money.

I don’t have a ‘real’ job, so I can spend my time fiddling around on the internet, finding various things to do, and one of those things is to try to make some money to buy Christmas and Birthday gifts for my better half, because how crappy is it to get a gift, but know you had to pay for it, so it’s really not a gift at all?  It’s more like, “Surprise! I spent your money on a gift for you, and used your money to buy tape and wrapping paper, and you’re probably not going to like it, but it’s the thought that counts, right? (Sucker)”

I signed up for Swagbucks ages ago, but found it difficult to earn them, so gave up on it.  Recently, I decided to give them another shot, so I reset my password (yeah, it had been so long, I’d forgotten the original one), and, although it’s not a lot, I’ve made an average of about Continue reading
