now with added etsy

After thinking about the different art markets for a while, and asking a lot of people for advice, I finally decided to open a shop on Etsy. I’ll be selling small, affordable open edition prints of my most popular photography. At first I struggled with the idea of selling these inexpensive prints. How would this impact the perception of my larger, more expensive prints? Would this impact my ability to get into galleries or shows in the future? Then I decided that the only way to find out was to give it a try. This will be an experiment. What sells and what doesn’t? What is a good price? What sizes and formats are people looking for? I’m hoping that my Etsy shop will in a sense be my own little marketing laboratory, helping me better understand how people find and buy art online.

  1. Hi Daniel, love your stories about your three year old since I have one too, and trying to work from home. ,Just wondering if you looked at Boundless Gallery at all? We have been around a few years and we’ve got a great venue for artists. Might be worth it for you to try out a couple different online destinations, since it’s pretty important to find the right one.

  2. good for you for trying it, I will be curious how it goes!

  3. Hi Amy, it’s great to hear from someone from Boundless Galley. I love your site, and actually do have my fine art photography on Boundless.

    Since I often talk about markets for self-representing artists on my blog, I was wondering if would you be able to offer us any advice about what makes a gallery on Boundless more of a success? What types of people buy art through your site: home art collectors, interior designers, corporate art buyers? What types of art, and what sizes and price points are the most attractive to your audience? Any advice you might have would be appreciated.

  4. Good luck with Etsy, Dan! I should look at Boundless…

  5. Hope your experiment goes well, I hope you will share the results on occasion on how it is going.

  6. Dan, good luck with Etsy! Your page looks great.
