Etsy is a great site for artists. Very slick and reasonable to list.
In my experience, there’s very little traffic other than other
artists buying from you. In the 4-6 months I was listed there, I had
no sales. It does help to build up your profile if you make a couple
of purchases first.
I found I get more traffic and sales off my Ebay storefront, so I
decided to focus my efforts there. It’s cheap enough, that it won’t
hurt your bottom line to list a few items. It’s a good advertising
point, but with your own web site, probably not needed. If you have
the time & can promote the heck out of it, it might be better for
Hey, on a side note… I’ve started a page on squidoo dedicated to
artists (mainly for Ebayers) but also have links on there to
e-commerce sites. Please feel free to add yours to ours! It’s free
to join and we get a pretty decent amount of traffic. We were
supposedly featured in a publication that squidoo handed out during
Ebay live this year, so we’re hoping for good things. Anyway, have a
look if you have the time & good luck with your sales!
All my best,
