Every freelancer has this at some point! I feel like I’m struggling to go uphill on a bicycle only to find out that I’m only in first gear. I get bursts of energy to create work and I feel great afterwards and I get a few small commissions which is great, then that feeling quickly disappears as I have next to zero sales in my shops. I actually have ZERO sales in my Etsy shop! I am determined to change this fact! I have been on the community boards on Etsy and have asked for some advice and I had a great response off some lovely people.
One of the tips I knew was going to be said is: FILL YOUR SHOP! What helped along this advice was why! I often think it’s just because statistically you are more likely to get shop views if you have more items to view. What someone also said to me which for some strange reason has never occured to me is that if someone does come across my shop and they love my drawing style.. but perhaps not the people I’ve drawn? For example my most recent drawing of Kate Moss, yes it’s a good drawing, but Kate Moss is not everyone’s cup of tea?! And so this is where I come to you for a little help.
What would you like to see me draw? Who would you like to see me draw? Please suggest some things as I am feeling a little stuck. If I chose your idea to draw I will even send you a free print of that drawing! So please comment below with some suggestions or let me know via twitter/facebook or e-mail!
