34 Sites to sell your art online

34 Sites to sell your art online

The online art market is increasing every year.

The possibility that you, as an artist, craftsman, photographer, illustrator, or freelance, can sell through art portals in a semi-direct way, widens the field of your market action.

Having a presence on these websites is usually free in most of them, although they charge a percentage if a sale is made.

Before uploading the material, read carefully the conditions and advantages that each of them offers you.

It is advisable to participate in these platforms as a complement to the sales channels that you usually use, but not as the only commercial outlet.

It is relevant, on the other hand, that you have a blog (see article  ”Steps to follow to have a professional blog ”) or your own gallery (shop), where you can exhibit your work online.

In an art portal, the more relevant it is, the more your work is diluted among the hundreds of artists who show their works.

Create your own website (“ WordPress, the best option for your blog and it’s free ”) because that way you will have all the prominence and you are creating a solid artist brand image.

In addition, as a sales platform, use the presence in art, craft, or photography portals as a means of attracting visitors directly to your website.

In your own blog or website, you can get a portfolio of clients or people interested exclusively in your work.

Serve them personally, creating a relationship of trust and informing them promptly of your new jobs.

As Bill Gates stated:  “If it is not on the Internet, it does not exist” As the online art market is increasing every year, we have edited the premium course  “Internet as a global market for your art”, to offer you the option of how to expand the Marketing your work to a global market.

Use and benefit from online sales platforms, but have other more exclusive alternatives as well.

Next, I provide you with a list of sites that I have selected in case you want to expose and sell through them.
