How to earn free 40 listings on Etsy shop.
You can receive free at least 40 listings if you invite someone to become a seller on Etsy and they complete the process of opening a new shop.
If a Etsy member has already begun to set up a shop but their shop isn't open to the public yet, the promotion cannot apply. The recommended account must be a buyer-only account before the code can be redeemed.
Please remember that the people you refer need to open their shop directly from your referral link in order for you both to receive free listings. If someone navigates away from the link or switches browsers, this new shop will not be registered as coming directly from your invite.
First of all you have to visit the site below. Click on the screen below to go to that website.
Simply enter the emails of the people you want to invite.
Then, you will receive an invitation email with the following message in the email of the person you want to invite. Click the orange button with accept invitation!
Then the invited person can see the screen below. In other words, when you open a shop, it is a message that you can receive 40 free listing services. You have to click "Let's do this"!
Below is a simple survey format. Ask why you need Etsy, what you're going to do with it, etc. If you don't want to answer, just press the skip button and go to the next one.
Now, you can click the button, Start your shop~
From below, it is the same as creating an Etsy shop in general. You just need to upload at least one image to get a free listing. Images uploaded like this do not take up $0.20.
It is a screen asking if you want to open tax information, that is, as an individual or as a business. Then enter the bank information. When everything is complete, invitees will see a message like the one below at the top right of the listing screen.
This is a great way for both the referrer and the referrer to get 40 free listings at the same time. At $0.20 per listing, that's a savings of about $8.
When you run a shop for the first time, there is no immediate profit. To make some profit, you have to be patient and upgrade your shop. So, it can be quite a burden if you spend $8 on a regular basis. If you use this system well, you will be able to manage the shop comfortably.
How to survive as an artist with selling artworks to Hotels?
For artists, especially those who make a living to sell painting, the important keyword of survival is always in their minds. The field of art is a specificity in that you do not belong to a specific group and you have to monetize your own income. With the exception of some star artists, it seems very difficult to survive in the realm of art like a jungle. I have shared these difficulties with the people around me. At this time, my friend Emilia sent me the information below. (Thanks again Emilia!)
And I would like to briefly introduce it as an article that is helpful for artists who are trying to sell their paintings. This article was summarized in the article, "how to make money selling artworks to hotels", in the profitableVenture magazine.
If you know you are good at selling stuff and you would like to make your own business but need enough capital to launch the business, you can consider selling artworks to hotels.
Selling artworks to hotels require little or no startup capital and it is very profitable. Selling paintings to hotel has a potential because artists are both the producer and the distributor.
For the process, artist have to research the market and gather the related information to get the address and details of all the hotels within your reach. Artist should also get info on the price range hotel owners may be willing to pay for artworks, the kind of paintings that is in high demand. You can make any artworks based on your client's specifications.
Next, design your business plan and strategies. If you have confidence with your plan and idea about it, you can write your business map to make your idea real. Your business plan spells out how you will go about marketing your artworks to hotels and it has to be included with your marketing strategies, source of your works, customers retention strategies, how to raise startup capital, and how to manage the inflow of cash.
After then, print your business card. Your business card and your phone is the most important tool in the business. Most of all, your business card is well printed and it clearly states the kind of business you are into and how you can be contacted.
With making your business, you have to create a website to display your artworks.
The last, approach hotel owners to market your artworks.
Since your idea of selling artworks is to sell to hotels, then all you need to do is to make a list of all the hotels within your reach, and then approach them to market your artworks. You can start with phone calls and then book an appointment to see the hotel manager or the owner of the hotel.
If you artworks are good and they are affordable, you would not struggle to see them.
Usually, hotel buy their paintings for display from art galleries, art expos, and exhibitions, from artwork dealers, online sources, and directly from the artists of their choice.
Therefore, hotels buy the paintings displayed in their lobbies and as a matter of fact, most standard hotels hire interior decors to help them source art objects that will help beautify their hotel facility. Art collectors always wish to find a piece that expresses something new in a comforting way or something familiar that is depicted in a manner that is bold, exciting, and fresh.
How To Sell Your Art to Hotels & Businesses: 4 Tips from Indiewalls' Senior Art Curator
That's what I always feel whenever I read this kind of article, but it seems that no matter how useful information is, unless you jump in and try it yourself, it's just useful information.
But when this article is helpful, it's time to check the hotel's needs. It may be helpful to know that there is such a niche in a business where the needs of each other are met to produce good results.
Frames ready for exhibition
I made a frame to prepare for the art show(The night heron watercolor artist) that will be open from tomorrow. First of all, for the exhibition, you need to paste the following information on the frame in the lower right corner. I do this because I can't tell what kind of artist the painting is just by looking at it.
Depending on the picture frame, there are some that are prepared to hang the wire so that it can be hung on the nail, but in most picture frames, you have to attach the wire yourself using the tool shown as the left.
All work have 2 rings attached on the back, one on either side (usually
no further than 1 1/2′′ to 2 inches down from the top of the piece - use your judgment considering the weight of your work so that the top of you work will not hang far from the wall).
The process of drawing a picture, submitting a work for an exhibition, and selecting a work is not the end. This painting must be well framed and delivered. However, the process of preparing the frame myself is labor intensive, but I like the process of painting, exhibition, frame preparation, and reception. Through this process, painters get a lot of help in showing their work to people and getting evaluation, as well as honing and developing their skills.
I worked for two months with $1 watercolor paint, creating a total of 38 pieces. I made these works into YouTube videos and uploaded them to my YouTube channel.
