This is day #2 that I have not been in the studio. This is very hard for me. I rarely get to go there on the weekend, but to do this during the week . . .
But I need to spend some time exploring Etsy, marketing options, blogs of all sorts, and perhaps do some business related reading. I feel like I'm goofing off by not actually creating something. But I've got to realize that I'm creating my artist self. Creation is only part of the whole scheme.
I do feel it is time to give my work and energy over to Etsy. Ebay has not done well for me in the past 8-10 months. I'm confusing myself by having work in different areas and I feel I can market better if all artwork is shown in one of these two places. I'm sure there are more venues to explore, but, aside from my website, Etsy is where you will be able to find my art online.
There may be some opportunities to show my work locally this summer and fall. I may also submit some work to fiber/paper art magazines.
If anybody has any Etsy advice, or ANY art marketing advice for me, it would be greatly appreciated.
