Sales from your Orchid galleries


#1

I finally got a scanner and was thinking about showing some of my
work on the orchid gallery. For those of you that have your work on
it I would like to ask what does it do for you? Have you gotten any
sales from your postings? Thank you, Elle

G’day. And Oh dear! I thought the Orchid gallery was simply a place
where we could show each other our work without pecuniary interests
showing their unpleasant noses. Money Money Money. But I suppose
one has to live. May I respectfully suggest that if one wants to
advertise for the purpose of sales then one gets a website or
something some place else? Sorry to sound a bit snotty, but I have
been a member of Orchid for yonks and have the strong feeling that
advertising and money making isn’t what Orchid is about. (subdued)

Here, Here John I most heartedly agree with your comments, Orchid is
a wonderful “Forum” not to be confused with a sales tool, Susan Chastain

I so agree with John!! This has been a site for sharing not selling
and I hope it stays that way. Hanuman has built this site with his
volunteer labor and has put many years, hours, and effort to make it
one of the best sites for sharing. I know how grateful we are to him
for all the work he has put into this site. I personally could nor
would I want to attempt to make money on his volunteer labor.

I concur with John on this. . .and I’m glad he said it, since I let
it pass myself. Perhaps the person posting hasn’t had time to get a
feel for the spirit of the Ganoksin site, and assumed it was intended
for buyers and sellers as a trade arena, like the Polygon site.
Ganoksin serves a considerably broader group with much more diverse
interests. And it’s a lot cheaper than Polygon, too. It’s a forum
for ideas, techniques, inspirations, and general mutual support for
the community of the individual artist. I am personally glad that
the mainstream retail industry hasn’t been attracted to this site.

Hear, hear, John Burgess and thanks for your snotty response
regarding the use of this website for advertising. I already get an
occassional pitch from a number of advertisers and brokers and find it
objectionable. This site is such a rare gem and will hopefully remain
dedicated to the art and craft of jewelry and its related disciplines.
I have learned more than I can list just sitting and scrolling through
the random discussions and the archives are a treasure.
Please continue to be snotty and vigilant. Damn few left.

To all

With all respect to ones business and some of them may have the
honnest meaning of just “showing” their pieces,but I believe that the
major part of those people are thinking about increasing their
financial status and running a free commercial by using this "UNIQUE"
forum.I would like to express my opinion by using this opportunity
and placing this estatement :“USE THIS WONDERFULL FORUM IN YOUR
BENEFIT AND DO NOT USE IT AS A DISADVANTAGE FOR OTHERS”. It’s a very
time demanding job to create,start and maintain a forum of this size.
With respect to all of you and especially to the founders of this
forum.
