Does anyone else have many sales with the limited time promotions feature, I sold 2 in august which is the 1st using that in 2 years...I promote them on fb, twitter and google + it is a shame the limited promotions only only print on canvas so it could be a drawback for certain work like sketches.
I sold one in May but no luck since then despite promoting them daily via twitter. I even tried one - at a very reasonable price - to give all the proceeds to the Salvation Army for Colorado flood victims, promoted it, had friends on here promote it, and still no takers (it expired yesterday). It was an image I've sold to many travel magazines and websites too - so not really sure about the limited promos but I still keep trying.
I've had a little luck with coupons but just a couple sales where they helped. Have they worked for you?
I sold 3 of one image in December, but I had the price really low. It's hardly worth it....but it's a sale!!!
I would like it a lot better, and I bet a lot of others would, if you could use custom sizes. A lot of times there is too much cropping to use the standard sizes.
But, I can understand why FAA doesn't offer custom, I'm just saying it would be nice...lol!
I agree with that Barbara that the cropping is quite bad, on nearly all my images it will crop out the signature and cut off the top and bottom of an image and you can only set it to one size if you use the promotion. Where are a customer might not want to stick with a set size.
Good luck Theresa, I keep trying too.
Good news for your sale Marianne, I haven't had to much luck with coupons. Not sure if customers are actually looking for special offers or just see something and decide to but no matter what the cost is. Would be interesting to know.
